Pet friendly, room service & restaurant on the premises. I really can’t say enough good things about this hotel, it ranks among the top ones we have ever stayed at. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the room service food was wonderful, and everything was clean, even though this it is a very busy place; we saw several bus tours coming... More

Our room was beautiful! The extra money for the harbour room was totally worth it! What a beautiful view! We had a king sized bed with a desk, and an armchair in front of the amazing view. The armchair was wonderful to sit and watch the water. The bed and pillows were very comfortable! We both had a wonderful sleep!... More

The hotel was alright for a one night stay but not worth returning. Out dated room, not very cozy. Okay for a business trip but not for a romantic get away. We saw dirty dishes in the hallway when we checked in (around 5pm) and they remained there until the next morning.

The service was great and the room was clean. We received breakfast coupons and the food was great. The waitress was kind and checked up on us regularly . We would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Sydney area.

Have stayed here numerous times. Lobby newly renovated and very nice. Rooms are dated but very clean and have everything you need. Beds are comfortable and clean. Great location and near all sorts of restaurants. We stayed here waiting for our ferry to NFLD.

Everything about our stay was lovely. We were in a king suite with a pullout coach on the 8th floor with a harbour view! The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and the kids loved the pool! We stayed 2 nights. One breakfast was off the menu and one was buffet-included in the room price! The staff was friendly... More

We booked this hotel last minute while travelling around Nova Scotia. We were very impressed with how friendly the girls at the front desk were. Our room was as promised, clean and had a great view from the 7th floor. Having the boardwalk along the water is a big plus. We took a stroll after dinner. We had breakfast in... More
