We booked this hotel for one night after attending a wedding in town. The room was very small and the air conditoning did not work well at all. I booked it on hotwire so I wasn't aware of where we would be staying until after we booked and paid for the room. The room did have a fridge and microwave.... More

Booked my wedding here Sept of last year. Everything was fine until I arrived in town from Alberta two weeks before my wedding. I had booked the courtyard (for the day I thought, as nobody told me I needed to book a specific time in the day).. and was told a week before my wedding they had booked a Jazz... More

I'm not sure I would stay here again. The staff was friendly to my family but the rooms were out dated and the beds weren't that great. You got a free breakfast in the morning. You can choose between a cold plate or a hot plate. My family all got hot plates, we thought the breakfast was yummy. Nothing else... More

Hotel was easy to find and just down the road from the city center. Comfortable beds and well appointed rooms. Dining room is located in hotel and breakfast was included with a choice of hot or cold. Front desk was accommodating and friendly. Sydney is a little confusing to drive in so I would suggest getting a detailed map (ones... More

My family and I stayed at the Hearthstone for one night and looked forward to it after reading some of these reviews. The first impression was that the room was in need of an update. The carpet was old and curtains had small holes in them (not sure from what). The walls were thin as we could hear the loud... More

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.
