If you're just looking for a place to crash, this is fine. The waterfront view is nothing special--just a stark patch of gravel before the water. The room was clean, but there wasn't even one picture on the walls. There was no Maritime "flavour" at all. Worst of all was the noise coming from next door--there is a rock-breaking factory... More

We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We wish you would have shared your concerns while with us. We ask our guests as they check out if they are satisfied with their stay and if everything was alright. We received no complaints at that time. The noise is beyond our control. It is new and temporary as they are... More

Our family stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed it. Beautiful view's knowledgeable staff, and very entertaining. Do not forget to partake in the Beggars Banquet. Thank you everyone who made our stay pleasant.

We stayed here for 2 nights in an Ocean View room. The view of the bay and fort from our room was truly fantastic, and the shore was easy to walk down to from the room. We were able to open 3 windows facing the water, which really made for a peaceful night sleeping to the sound of the waves... More

We chose this place based on the reviews on trip advisor. Biggest mistake I have ever made. For $150 a night (and that was the government rate) we had a room with one queen bed and a sofa bed. The room was clean but that's the only nice thing I can say. The bed was rock hard, the light from... More

We have no control on opinions our guests post on this or other sites. Our guest satisfaction ratings have put us #1 in our area for which we are... More

We had not really researched places to stay in Louisbourg, but a cursory look through the hotel list and led us to pick this one. What a great surprise! When we were greeted, our room was not ready but we were going to spend the day at the fortress and we got a discount coupon for admission charges. We also... More

This is THE place to stay when in Louisbourg! Our 2-week trip through the Maritimes ended in Louisbourgh with a 2-night stay. Nice and close to the Fortress. The room was bright, spacious and clean with a nice large kitchen and easy access and a view to the sea. We didn't attend the Beggar's Banquet but heard good things. The... More

From a drive through town, it appears that Point of View Suites is one of the nicest places to stay in Louisbourg. The room was large, clean and comfortable. There was a nice view of the water (as long as you didn't look toward the fishery complex!) If staying at Point of View, plan to partake in the Beggar's Banquet... More

My wife and I finished off our tour of the Atlantic on our Honeymoon at Point of View Suites in Louisbourg. Immediately when we entered the main office we were informed that we were upgraded to the best suite available (the signature suite). The room was simply breath taking, luxury through and through. Staff was super friendly and we had... More

We stayed at the Point of View Suites as we were touring Cape Breton and wanted to spend the day at Fortress Louisbourg. The location is magical, the room was large enough to accomodate the two of us and our almost 4 year old son. And best of all, the staff at the inn were welcoming, genuinely friendly, and made...

Everything about Point of View Suites was exceptional from our first contact by phone to make a reservation until our departure. Make sure, while you are there, to dine at the Beggar's Banquet -- a thoroughly entertaining experience from the moment of donning a period costume (even my shy travelling companion didn't hesitate to join in the fun). Sabean's shinanigans... More
