We found Point of View to be a lovely place. Clean and well maintained, the bathroom had little counter space, but the shower was great. We didn't need the kitchen facilities, as the restaurants in town were good. We had a second floor queen suite, with a balcony, and were very close to the water. Free parking, breakfast the next...

Beautiful view of the ocean. The room was large, well-maintained with nice amenities. Although we missed out on the Beggars' Banquet, we had a good dinner at the restaurant. The waitress was very cheerful, friendly & made us feel very welcome. Overall, the staff was very nice and our stay was pleasant.

You can't get much closer to the Fortress entrance - I just walked to the Visitor Centre, took about five minutes. Our suite faced the sea and was very well-appointed, plenty of linen, cutlery,crockery etc.Beds were superbly comfortable and is was great to be lulled asleep by the sound of the waves. Jeanette was really friendly in reception and our... More

Recently, we had the pleasure of staying at this oceanside hotel. We had a suite on the 2nd floor with a gorgeous view of the ocean on a night with a full moon shining across the water. My son had ordered a bottle of wine for our anniversary and when we arrived it was in a bucket of ice on... More

I enjoyed my stay. The location is as close as you can get to the fortress of Louisbourg, and it is right on the ocean. Breakfast was nice, and the staff were very friendly, and made you feel right at home. I stayed on a first floor room, not facing the ocean (room 14). It was spacious, clean, and very... More

Overlooking Louisbourg Harbour; a wonderful place to stay while visiting historic Louisburg. Go for a seond floor suite (Room 11), which actually looks and feels like a suite. First floor suite we were first assigned had two queen beds in one room - not very suite-like. Second floor Room 11 had a balcony and the view. Nearby beach is great... More

Came here on a blustery, rainy day. Wish we could have enjoyed the balcony. A beautiful spot right on the ocean. Huge rooms, with complete kitchen area. Very clean and well equipped room. Easy to find and close to the fort.

We weren't at all disappointed in our stay in the oceanview 2nd story room. We could see the fort from the deck and enjoy the harbor. The room was so clean and bed very comfortable.
