Super room, fantastic staff to oversee the building (LInda MacKinnon - ask her anything about Cape Breton and she'll help you to find it, book it, or know about it) and a really quaint little boutique hotel. It's warm, welcoming and you'll have a great sleep. Windows were beyond me on how to get them to work, but it didn't... More

It is so difficult planning a trip to a location and trying to ascertain which places to stay and whether the pictures actually correctly depict the accommodations. This is why I always use the TRAVELLERS' PICTURES and not the MANAGEMENT's on the TRIPADVISOR reviews. It was so nice after a very long day's drive from Bangor, Maine to be welcomed... More

I live about an hour outside of Sydney, and occasionally find it more convenient to stay over. The Spanish Bay has become my home in the city and I only wish I could find more excuses to stay more often! The location is great, beds are comfortable and the open kitchen makes you feel at home when you make breakfast... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Spanish Bay Inn and suites. It was the perfect, small, quiet and friendly place to stay along the Sydney waterfront. The hotel right on the Esplanade and very near Governor's Pub which has great live ceilidh music on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The room was nice with a large bathroom, nice bed and tv/internet. I...

I really enjoyed my 3-day stay at the Spanish Bay. The room was large, airy, clean, and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in!!! Great location close to the water with a nice view of where the cruise ships come in. Super friendly staff and an adorable communal dining area where you can grab coffee and... More

Very nice ,quiet hotel near the Sydney waterfront, and much warmer than the typical chain hotel. The rooms were clean and very welcoming. We had a great view of the ocean and the location was perfect for walking distance to most restaurants and shops. When visiting Sydney again I will definitly be staying there.

We were traveling with our two grown children and found our suite excellent and spacious for all of us. The hotel was conveniently located. The staff was terrific and very responsive to our questions. All in all a great stay.

Very nice ,quiet hotel on the waterfront. Antique furnishings except for the bed and bathroom which was quite modern and comfortable. I had made the reservation on line with no trouble and there was a receptionist present when we arrived at about 3;30 PM. We were a little surprised to be advised that no one would be on duty after... More

This hotel is a lovely boutique-style inn with hardwood floors, a very comfortable bed, and decor to fit this historical building. The staff were extremely lovely, and were keen to get to know us and provide some sightseeing recommendations to a couple of Albertans. Although it didn't affect us at all, it would be worth noting that there are no... More
