The Colby House is everything you could wish for in a B & B. The rooms are nicely decorated, cozy, and very clean. The dining room was a great place to compare notes with other travelers and enjoy the fabulous breakfasts that Gordon and Bev prepare. The living room was spacious and was a great place to read or play... More

We took the Lonely Planet's advice and went to Sydney in order to stay at Bev and Gordon's place. It was unforgettable. They think of everything, they are personable and thoughtful, and the breakfasts are gourmet wonders. What a remarkable find. Do not stay only one night! It's a fabulous place from which to "do" Cape Breton Island and Louisburg!

My husband and I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts and I don't think we've come across a more perfectly-run one than Colby House. Nothing was too good for the guests. Lovely not-too-sweet oat cakes were at our disposal. The beds were extraordinarily comfortable and I was sure that the sheets had been ironed. Not a speck of dust... More

This is an outstanding B&B. Bev and Gordon pay attention to all the details and I loved how clean everything was. The dining room was warm and inviting and our breakfast was delicious. Thank you so much! We will not hesitate to stay there again when we return to Sydney. Diana H and Duncan F

Colby House is in urban Sydney but has a wrap around porch with privacy. A feeling of country in the city. I counted six different conversational places to sit. So many choices of chairs and nooks to choose to read a good book. Our room was pristine with all the amenities and a good size shower. Breakfast was wild blueberry... More

Our first visit with Bev and Gordon two years ago was completely outstanding and somehow, they surpassed themselves on our second visit. Warm, welcoming and classy best sum up Colby House. From the fresh condition of the rooms, to the wonderful breakfasts and genuine hospitality, they have the perfect touch in all aspects. We have experienced B&B's from Vancouver Island... More

Excellent stay at the Colby House! Welcoming, knowledgeable, accommodating, professional … can’t say enough about Gordon & Bev as B&B hosts! During our two-night stay, we appreciated the attention to detail with the beautiful crisp linens, immaculately clean premises and delicious nutritious breakfasts! When we come back to Sydney, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere other than with Bev &... More

I spent a weekend at Bev & Gordon's B&B. It was absolutely beautiful. The rooms were tastefully decorated with private ensuites, and the large four poster beds were fresh and so comfortable. The food was scrumptious, fresh, and the attention to detail was not lost on Gordon who would appear just as you needed more coffee. The wrap around deck... More
