After the death of my mother it was apparent that my trips home to Cape Breton would never be the same. The great folks at Hearthstone Inn welcomed my family and we felt like we were staying at a home away from home. The Inn was clean, very spacious and the food was great. The location was close to everything... More

In looking at previous reviews for this hotel, I am somewhat disappointed with our stay. Although the staff is exceptional and very helpful, I was disappointed with our room, #127. The room is a pet-friendly one, which we needed, on the back of the building and on the bottom floor. The first thing I noticed when entering this hallway was... More

Dear valued Guest Please accept my apologies for the issue you had while staying here at the Hearthstone Sydney. We take all of our guests feedback very seriously. We had some rooms closed in the lower level for renovations so the heat hadn't been on for a few days. The problem has since been rectified. I hope you will give... More

Room was comfortable and clean. But they had to canna alive light switch lamp buttons from another room so we could... More

I have been travelling to Sydney for over 20 years. I choose the Hearthstone Inn because it provides everything I need while on business. It has a great restaurant on site, pool, upgraded rooms, free wifi and breakfast in the morning. I would recommend to anyone travelling for business or pleasure.

We took our daughter here for the start of our March break adventure. I can't say enough about it. The staff were friendly, rooms were very clean, beds are super comfy and the breakfast offered with our stay was exceptional!!! We loved the pool and we will return for another stay. Thanks for a great experience.
