We were surprised when we entered our room at how new and functional it was. It was right on the waterfront with a view of the Fort and the harbour (room 8). The room was comfortable, clean, wifi worked well, and towels etc..were clean and soft. The hotel is close to the Fort and accessibility is good. On the property... More

Easy to find, adjacent to the Fort of Louisbourg. Check in was smooth and the staff friendly. Our room (#5) was oceanfront, spacious, clean and well appointed. We were able to conveniently unload our car right at our doorstep. Beds were comfy. Check-out was also uneventful and friendly.

The front desk staff was very accommodating to us when we asked at arrival if we could switch our single room to a suite with two bedrooms, and allowed us to take the keys for a couple of choices to look over. We picked room 11, which was on the second floor. It had a central hallway and bathroom between... More

This place is fairly reasonably priced and the location is great. Right on the water and right down the road from the fort. The room we had was in great shape and nicely spacious. cable, wifi, and right on the waterfront. Right across the parking lot is their beggars banquet which I highly recommend. good times.

We stayed in room 8 which was very large with a kitchen. There was also a balcony. The bed and pillows were firm. The bathroom is on the small side with a half vanity. One ply toilet paper is not the way to go here. No closet rather, a small wardrobe. The suite could seat 4 people however, it needs... More

We appreciate your review. Again the issue with the toilet paper is on the forefront. We are all on a septic system here in Louisbourg and to avoid big problems and major inconveniences the use of single ply toilet paper is used. We found public places, such as the theater in Sydney, and many of the restaurants also use the... More

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of June. We had an ocean facing upstairs room with stunning views. The room was spacious and extremely comfortable. We very much enjoyed watching the sunset over the bay from the comfort of the sofa! The thing we found completely astonishing was nothing to do with the hotel, but it was... More

Thanks for your review. Yes the town pretty much shuts down at an early hour. It's a bit later during peek season, but not by much. We here at the Point of View Suites have procured a band, with local boys to play a couple of nights a week after our Beggars Banquet dining. We've done it a few evenings... More

Room 5 and perhaps many others have black mold. My wife, a public health nurse familiar with thsee issues, noticed it as soon as we walked in the room. Do not stay here if you have mold allergies. Other rooms may be the same. It's late and we already paid so we are stuck...sleeping with the windows open

I do not mean this reply to be rude but I will address the mold comment aggressively because of how damaging such a comment is to our establishment. If indeed you saw mold in your room why did you not bring it to our attention. Our rooms are known for their cleanliness and our ratings reflect that. These room, though... More

We stayed 2 nights around a visit to the Fortress, and is certainly is close by. The room looked impressive when we first walked in, with chandelier, velour curtains, and scattered antiques. But, the bath and lavatory were awkward, room had only 1-2 accessible electrical outlets (we travel with too many gadgets that need nightly charging), and the pillows were... More

Thank you for posting your comments. The matter of the outlets was addressed immediate. Though there are no less than seven outlets in the room we understand that their accessibility might be difficult and the situation is being remedied. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. More

Our room on the first floor had a beautiful ocean view. It was comfortable and clean with wooden floors. Unfortunately, the second-floor also has wooden floors so we heard every movement of our upstairs neighbor, a middle-aged couple. I don't know what they were doing up there, but they never stopped walking across the floor. It sounded like they were... More

Thank you for your review. We're sorry you were inconvenienced by the noise from the floor above you. Though it is not a bowling alley and we have insulated between the floors and ceiling to the max we understand that the sound still projects itself. For that we apologize.. More

Travelling for work and stayed at this spot to be close to the Fortress. Very hospitable welcome, they offered to open the kitchen early for us for breakfast since nothing would be open before 8 in town and we had to be at work by then. They were apologetic that they couldn't do more. So East Coast! Comfortable night's sleep,... More
