we stayed here in a 2 bedroom apartment for 1 night as we were finishing off the cabot trail. It was just out of town, but we could easily walk into town for food (red shoe pub - very good). The apartment was in the basement of one of the buildings, but was still light and very spacious. The bathroom... More

What a pleasant surprise this was! Our room was huge, very clean and quiet. The staff in the evening and in the morning were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a "cold beverage" in the lounge on the second floor and chatted to some other guests before walking to the Red Shoes pub for the evening. Don't miss the pub!! The... More

My sister and I had a lovely, clean room with a private washroom, which was across the hall. Antique beds, beautiful linens; quiet and peaceful area with close proximity to the centre or Mabou. Lots of place to sit and read, both inside and out. Breakfast was continental with home made cinnamon buns and scones. Staff were helpful and were... More

My husband and I stayed at the Mabou River Inn for three nights in Sept. The hotel was fully booked except for the two bedroom suite, so we booked it. It was huge...great for a family or a golf foursome. The Inn was within walking distance of the Red Shoe Pub (reviewed separately ) and close to a great hiking... More

Lovely place to stay. Pretty and peaceful setting. Comfortable, clean and spacious rooms. Friendly, hospitable staff. Convenient kayak rental. We loved spending the day kayaking and picnicking on Mabou harbour which is stunningly beautiful. The Inn is walking distance to wonderful Red Shoe Pub. We would love to return to spend more time here.

We had a great night stay at the Mabou River Inn. The room was large as was the bathroom. Everything was very clean and comfortable. It was a nice quick walk into the "centre of town". It also had several nice decks to sit outside. Breakfast was great - as was the wonderful smell of the pizza in the afternoon!

we stayed one night at this Inn in September. I was not sure about the bathroom across the hall but this was fine. The room was large with a queen bed and a couch. We were walking distance to the Red Shoe. The breakfast was really good with lots of choice. As we were leaving there were biscuits coming out... More

Nice people. Room was modern and well kept. bathroom was across the hall but private, clean, and large. Would definitely stay here again. general area is quite and attractive to people who love the outdoors. Quaint restaurants and distillery nearby. Definitely one should visit is Inverness beach - beautiful!

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.
