This place screams romance! A private suite, with a kitchenette, dining area, bed and bath made for a perfect night in Louisbourg. The balcony and living/dining area overlooked the ocean and Louisbourg Fort, making for a gorgeous view (and fantastic photos). We loved the private entrance and spacious accommodations and the front desk staff were lovely.... we had dinner at... More

Remote (from Sydney) seaside escape near Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site (well worth a visit). 2nd floor ocean view room #3 with balcony was spacious with a kitchenette. Stair access a little steep and tight; would go for 1st floor room next time (has wrap around balcony). Staff extremely helpful. On site restaurant, Point of view Restaurant, serves outstanding...

On September 14 we toured the Fortress of Louisbourg and stayed at the Point of View Suites. We wanted a quiet room and the hotel had reserved the third floor room for us. It was actually a miniture apartment with a separate kitchen and dining table. The lack of an elevator was not a problem. The room was very large.... More

Stayed in a second-floor suite in the small building adjacent to the main lodge. Right over the cliff and a window view down the choppy bay to the Fortress. Amazing. The Beggar's Banquet was lots of fun and so popular that non-guests come to the grounds for the francophone fun and the great meal and 1744-style frivolity -- complete with... More

Mother Nature is our greatest asset for sure. She'll lull you to sleep with her whispering sounds or entertain you with her crashing waves. Seeing as we're the only ocean front establishment in Louisbourg we're honoured to share this with our guests. It was a pleasure to serve you and to see your beautifully restored antique truck. Thanks for sharing... More

We stayed here for two nights and loved it. The special dinner was well served and prepared and we liked the ambiance too. The hotel has very clean rooms with nice views to the bay and the Fortress which has the entrance within walking distance. Thank you!

The two bedroom suite with an ocean view was spacious, attractive and clean. With 3 queen-sized beds it was a great deal for a family of four. The Beggar's Feast was fun - really enjoyed the music and song; but the female actress that came to the table to role-play a character from 1735, was annoying. One visit would have... More

We stayed here for a night in mid-July because of its location near the fortress. The room was clean and spacious, and overlooking the bay. The highlight was the Beggar's Banquet--fun, entertaining and clearly demonstrative of the community support for the tourist industry. My daughter's celiac condition was well accommodated, and reflected the wonderful attentiveness of the staff. I would... More

The rooms are spacious with hardwood floors and lots of windows bringing in all the light from the ocean. We had a well-equipped kitchenette with a table for dinner. There's a beach belonging to the hotel if you want to walk or pick up rocks. We didn't have the Beggar's Banquet, but we talked to other guests who said that... More
