Our family has made numerous visits to the Hearthstone Inn Sydney, as well as the Port Hastings/Hawksbury location. The staff in Sydney are fast, friendly and always willing to help. They have a restaurant with a new menu and the burgers are amazingggg!!!! They still have fish & chips though so the kids are happy!! LOL.. Nothing but good things... More

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.

I came to beautiful Sydney, NS for business and stayed at the Hearthstone Inn. It located within a 3 or 4 minute drive or a short walk to shopping centres. I was impressed by this hotel and its staff who were well mannered, friendly and attentive. I enjoy swimming and working out in the gym. I often seek hotels with... More

Dear Brunabiagi, I can't express enough how badly I feel about your recent stay. We do have designated rooms for guests with pets so they do not disturb other guests in the hotel. I apologize that it does not state this on Expedia. Because of your feedback we are now thinking strongly on providing a pet friendly King room. Please... More

The hostess checked on our reservation and gave us a table we requested by the windows and close to the double sided fireplace. Our waitress greeted us with a warm welcome and some chocolate dipped strawberries. She asked for our drink order and invited us to go to the buffet. We enjoyed fish chowder and wine dipped mussels, a salad,... More

I travel so much and usually stay at the same hotel chains. Thought I would try a different property this time in Sidney N.S. ....So glad I did. Amazing staff with that down home, Cape Breton hospitality. Clean rooms at a good price. I recommend this property highly.
