Reservations made on line. Inn found to be for sale. Somewhat tired in appearance though it appears efforts are being made to upgrade for sale appeal. Desk clerk very pleasant. Reservation was made with note of Inn allowing dogs. Online did not indicate to Inn we had dogs ( tiny Yorkie mix). Only one room is allowed for dog use... More

Nice place - hard to find a place to eat supper in this area though. Everything closes at 7 or so. There was no phone in our room - and no guidelines for restaurants in the area at all. There was no table and lamp in the middle of the beds - very hard to read. I had to unplug... More

Perhaps we paid less as it may have been off-season, but we enjoyed our stay. Booking for one night we then decided to tour the area and because of the value we booked a second night. As other travelers have mentioned the breakfast may not be some thing special but it does have the basics. Perhaps after the reviews they... More

Stayed here on our first night cycling around the Cabot Trail. The beds were reasonably comfortable, but the room overall was not overly appealing. The bathroom fan was horrendously noisy, and the bathroom door was very hard to close. In terms of breakfast...I don't know what you have to do to qualify as bed AND breakfast, but the breakfast here... More

Had a great stay at the Island Inn. Nothing fancy about this place, but the rooms are comfortable and clean with all the necessary amenities. Wifi was stable and relatively quick. The inn is located close to a convenience store, restaurants, a bank, and the liquor store. The staff was very warm, welcoming and helpful. Will definitely consider another stay... More

My husband and I stayed here for just one night. We picked it because of the convenient location right on the Cabot Trail as well as price. It was clean and comfortable. However, it needs updating, our door to our room was difficult to close, it was hot upstairs, and there were other guests relaxing on the shared balcony right... More

Not the best. Our bathroom had been updated and the bed ok. The carpets throughout need to be updated. Probably the least appealing to the several that we have stayed in. Has great potential though for someone wanting to purchase this property and you have lots of cash to spend on renos. Beautiful wrap around veranda and the location was... More

My brother and I stayed at this B&B over the Labor Day weekend. Only good things to say! It's an absolute gem - if you know what you're going for. It's simple - decor is nothing fancy, bathrooms haven't been updated, the breakfast is a cold buffet. But for $89 we got two double beds, a hot pot of coffee... More

Definitely the worst Inn or B&B we stayed at in our two weeks travelling in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. Musty old and depressing room, terrible bed, terrible water pressure in the shower. Staff not very accommodating, just there to do their job, not friendly. Breakfast was just passable. For those who like A/C, avoid this place, especially the second floor... More

We stayed here one night, the room was big enough for 5 off us, they had a Playpen for our baby. The bathroom was very nice, the beds could do with an update as one of the beds sunk a little in the middle. The breakfast was basic but adequate. A good location just outside the gates to the national... More
