This was a great place to say and an easy walk into the main part of town or down to the water. The rooms are also quiet at night so no problem getting a good nights rest. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the staff is warm and very friendly.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Mabou River Inn to anyone. This B & B is well situated in a quiet area, with on-site access to the Coastal Trail. Bikes and kayaks are available for guests to use. Both single rooms and housekeeping facilities are available. The rooms are large and very clean, the property is very well maintained.... More

When we walked in, we were greeted by Sandy, who was very warm and welcoming. At the same time, we caught a scent of pizza, as the owners also own a pizza restaurant across from the check-in area. The smell was amazing and the people eating there said the pizza was delicious. The restaurant, and later the reception area, was... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights during a trip to Cape Breton. It turned out to be a great choice! Although there were only 2 of us, we ended up in one of the 2 bedroom units due to availability. This place was huge - large living room, full kitchen, big bathroom, two bedrooms. We didn't need all the... More

The Mabou River Inn was a nice comfortable place to spend the night. Our room was exactly as described. In the morning my wife went for a run along a local trail and with permission the friendly family dogs joined her. She had a great time. The best surprise about the River Inn was how amazing the owners were when... More

We were pleased with our July 2015 visit to Mabou River Inn. Our room was narrow but long and very roomy with great windows. Newly remodeled. Very reasonable rates. Lovely large bathroom. And close to Scottish (Celtic-type) music venues, and swimming on the Mabou River. They also lent us bikes to go biking. Flat screen TV. AC. Free WIFI, and... More

We spent two nights at the Mabou River Inn and enjoyed everything about it. We had a king-sized room with a pullout couch and ensuite bath. Hotel is clean and comfortable. Service is good and any interaction with the owners a pleasure. Like others have mentioned, the home baking and continental+ breakfasts are fantastic. We arrived mid afternoon, looking for... More

My wife and I loved our stay at the Mabou River Inn. This Inn has been newly renovated and is so comfortable. We stayed in room 1 which is huge! The staff is very friendly and the included breakfast was terrific. The freshly baked cinnamon buns where the best we have ever had! We feel so rested after our stay.... More
