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

This is a family run inn, and a friendly, comfortable place in which to stay. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, the breakfast includes hone made cinnamon buns and scones to die for, and the home made pizzas are delicious too. The staff are very accommodating and take pride in their Nova Scotian hospitality.

Nice hotel in Mabou, we stayed in one of the Queen rooms in the lower level that had the bathroom across the hall. It was only a minor inconvenience but there are rooms with ensuite bathrooms if you prefer and want to pay a bit more. The breakfast was fantastic and the staff was super-friendly even offering us to take... More

If you plan on staying here, make sure your room has a bathroom. Maybe some of them do, but ours has one across the hall. Highly inconvenient. Also there was NO coffee in the room, and the coffee pot is in the common kitchen area down the hall, and that's a story in itself...... all for only $128.

We stayed here only one night but were very impressed with this Inn. The room we stayed in was very generous and the bed was quite comfortable. Breakfast was lovely and our hostess was very friendly. We stayed a room which had a king sized bed and pull out couch which was perfect for my husband and I and two... More
