The location is beautiful with great views. We spent 2 nights here, we truly enjoyed it and have no regrets. The room was very clean, functional and comfortable. The owners are friendly and were extremely helpful in helping us organize our excursions, we really appreciated that. We highly recommend!

This is not the place to go if you are looking for hospitality. The guy running the place is absolutely rude, inconsiderate, drunk all the time and would not help me in the slightest. For example, when asked if I could have a couple extra pillows as I needed to use the pullout I was told no as he turned... More

A beautiful, peaceful location with magnificent views. Accommodations were very nice, clean and comfortable hosted by Melvin and his wife who are very nice and friendly. They are concerned about one thing; that you enjoy your stay and have what you need. The overall atmosphere of our visit found us wanting to stay on or at least return again. Highly... More

We selected Burton's Sunset Oasis Motel as the second leg of our trip to Nova Scotia. We read it was the number one place to stay on Cape Breton and we were not disappointed. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The views were absolutely unforgettable. We took several walks and captured some of the most beautiful sunset pictures ever.... More

Absolutely THE best place to stay on Cape Breton. Located overlooking the fishing village of Bay St Lawrence and the atlantic ocean Burton"s Sunset Oasis is a 5 unit motel with kitchenettes in each unit. Incredibly friendly and helpful owners always have a smile for guests and were even kind enough to allow us to use their gas grill to... More

I made a reservation for next spring via the telephone. I asked for a confirmation email and was told they would send it right out. When I didn't get it on a few days I called again. They once again said they would send it. Again it never came. I called five times and it was always the same story.... More

We are so glad we chose to stay at Burton's Sunset Oasis in Bay St. Lawrence on our recent trip to Cape Breton. When we arrived and drove up to the motel, we were in awe at its perfect location atop a hill overlooking the cliffs and endless ocean. What a special place! Mel and Debbie work hard to make...

This is an out-of-the-way place which is worth the time to drive to. The kitchenette was handy for making meals and the couch just invited us to relax. The owners were welcoming and not overbearing. It's a peaceful retreat with an inspiring view of the hills/mountains. Bring your own groceries as there aren't many restaurants in town (there is a... More

We just returned from our first visit to the maritime provinces. One highlight of our trip was our stay at this six unit motel, on the top of a hill overlooking the water and village of Bay St Lawrence. Our room was immaculate and roomy with a well furnished kitchenette. The owner, Melvin, could not have been friendlier. As the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights while exploring the Cabot Trail. The owners of the hotel are extremely nice and helpful, quick to give suggestions on where to eat and what to do in the area. The rooms were nice and clean. I loved having the kitchenette so that we could do some cooking ourselves to save money. Free wifi... More
