We booked in to the hotel for an overnight stay prior to taking the ferry to Port aux Basques. The welcome was efficient, friendly and helpful and the evening meal superb - well served by pleasant staff and with a great choice of fish, seafood, poultry and meat. The breakfast menu was slightly limited but the food on offer was...

The rooms were a good size and nice and quiet. I had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and it was good. Beautiful view from the patio as well. I will definitely stay here again when I'm in the area.

I would suggest management get more help for...

This is a great place to stay. The location is perfect if you are getting on or off the ferry. The ferry is less than 2 minutes away. The hotel was lean and neat. The staff were friendly and helpful .There are some points of interest close to the hotel.

It has been a few years since I was last in this hotel, and my last impression is that is was wearing its age. Might even say it was sadly neglected. While planning a trip to Cape Breton I looked at this hotel and decided to take a chance, based on some reviews I read. I am happy I did!...

We were so happy with our experience here that we cancelled our other hotel plans for when we were scheduled to return via the Ferry back from Newfoundland a week later. The desk clerk was fantastic, the food and the service in the on-site restaurant were great, the room was really comfortable, the bed linens and mattress conducive to a...

This is a cheaper alternative to the more expensive hotels in Sydney. It is right across the street from the NF ferry. Although, there is a restaurant in the hotel, there are lots of eating options within driving distance. The room we had was clean enough but had a funny smell. The halls smelled funny too. The hotel has laundry...
