First of all I would like to say the staff at the hotel were very accommodating and were very nice, as all Cape Bretoners are for the most part. However, this is an old property and has many issues! It has been remodeled and does look nice. I come to the Island every summer to visit my mother and relatives. When I come I stay for a while, anywhere from 10-14 days. This trip we were here for 11 nights. This hotel is probably fine if you are here for 1-3 nights. The free breakfast buffet is nice, but got sick of it after 3 or 4 days. They never change it up, it’s always the same. Having a restaurant on property is definitely a plus though! The food is pretty good and the bar is nice! I will say some nights they could have used more help in the restaurant as well as some mornings! If the hotel is full and it is the height of tourist season you should have more than 1 waitress! A lot of locals eat there as well. One downside is there is no elevator. I’m is only 3 floors, but if you have a really big, heavy suitcase like I did hauling it up or downstairs is a pain. This hotel all and all is pretty good, not the best in the city, but not the worst either. Weird things just keep happening to us here during our stay. One day we couldn’t get into our room and maintence literally had to break into our room then replace the whole lock mechanism. The next day the door was not locking at all. We then had to wait for it to be fixed before we left not wanting to leave our unlocked.

The staff were great. Beds were sunken inward. Airconditioners leaked. Rooms need a makeover badly.

Pros: Free Internet
Cons: Poor breakfast
Staff are extremely helpful!! Beds are not good. Airconditioning really needs to be repaired or replaced. Rooms need updating. Food at the restaurant - some was really good and some was not. Free breakfast should nto be ever considered. It only included breakfast bars such as rice crispies treat and coffee/tea - not great!!!

This hotel made me and my family feel like Royalty!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, fantastic beds, lots of fluffy pillows, staff are fantastic, housekeeping - flawless, restaurant in hotel, daily complimentry newspapers, lots of parking, complimentry fresh fruit in lobby, laundry facilities on site
This was a last minite trip with my daughter and two grandchildren. Perfect family hotel. Service and staff could not be better. The beds............ like sleeping on a cloud!! Wish I could have taken it home with me. The pillows were big and puffy and there 3 - 4 on each bed. The food was fantastic and the complimentry breakfast was much more substancial that I expected. Can't wait to go back to this hotel. I cannot think of one thing that needs to be improved.

What a treat to stay here.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, fantastic beds, wonderful staff, beautiful "smoke free"courtyard, very clean
Booked this hotel at the last minute for a spur of the moment trip with my daughter and two small grandchildren. It was fantastic!! The beds are like sleeping on a cloud. The staff were first rate. Always fresh fruit, refreshments on hand and a great selection for breakfast. There isn't one thing I could find wrong with this hotel. It was luxury and class all the way. I look forward to returning. I have no problem recommending this hotel to anyone.
