An absolutely fabulous hotel situated overlooking the bay. Our room was in a balconied block with fantastic views. A slight problem with a faulty coffee machine was dealt with promptly by the friendly housekeeping staff. A beautifully decorated room; it was very comfortable & homey. The Bar area was lovely with a large fireplace & sofa’d seating areas, very comfortable... More

We spent four nights at the Bluenose & I was disappointed. First let me say that it is clean & staff friendly enough but I expect more when you pay this kind of money. The plus is the fantastic view but the rooms are just so so. The whole property is dated but the worse part is the noise between... More

The Mizzentop room that we stayed in was amazing. Beautiful views, incredibly clean, gas fireplace, friendly staff and the lounge in the evening was comfortable and very entertaining thanks to Bill Trowley, the pianist.

How many ways can you spell Cassidy? How about G r e a t! We never met her but my experience with her on the phone led us to believe that all of the Bluenose employees would be just as accommodating. Was our hunch correct? You bet it was. Starting with Nate, who welcomed us at the desk, and ending... More

What a treat! Arriving late in the evening with no reservations, we pulled in to inquire about a room. Because of the off season we were fortunate to walk in without reservation. The room was very clean, had a real key to unlock the door, chandeliers, fire place, balcony with fabulous view of Frenchman's Bay. There was a coffee pot,... More

I believe you have the best view on the island! The rooms and amenities are the best anywhere I've been!! First class!!! Especially enjoyed going up to the "Looking Glass Restaurant each morning for breakfast, and the view from there was even better. Everyone we came into contact with was so friendly and ready to help in any way!

The Inn is high on the hill; giving wonderful views of Frenchman's Bay. Our room on the 3rd level was served by an elevator. The room was quite comfortable with the amenities one expects from an Inn with a spa. Special shampoo/conditioner/facial bar/lotion/shower cap and more. In room coffee was good. Hair dryer & iron in each room. The main... More

We really enjoyed staying here at the end of the summer. I had requested a room with a view and boy did I get one! I recommend the restaurant here as well which offers a wonderful cocktail hour (awesome drinks) and a pit fire with again, the views of the ocean from way up on top of the hill. We... More

Beautiful views from our balcony. Very nicely presented room and extremely comfortable beds. One of the few North American hotels we stayed in that has a hair dryer that actually dries your hair.
