We stayed in the Stenna Nordica - the views are not quite as nice as in the Mizzentop. The Stenna Nordica has a "shared" balcony - essentially, an outdoor "hallway." This means you cannot enjoy the view of Frenchman's Bay with your the drapes open as people are walking by your room constantly. Bad architectural design. The walk to the... More

We stayed at the Bluenose for 5 nights in October to see the fall colours.An unexpected bonus was the amazing views from our room in the MIzzentop and the 'Looking Glass' restaurant.Our room was on the 2nd floor and was huge complete with fireplace & balcony.The room was very clean but think the bathroom could do with an upgrade. It... More

This was our last hotel on our stay and we decided to upgrade and treat ourselves and it was worth the extra, we had a lovely large room with a 4 poster bed and the most fantastic views over the Bay. There were many restaurants to choose from around the area and the food was excellent.

We liked almost everything about this hotel. It is a beautiful building on a hill overlooking Bar Harbor. Our room in the main building had a spacious balcony looking straight out to sea. The room was large and well equipped (barring the lack of an in-room safe) and we were well greeted and looked after throughout our stay. The only... More

We were on a tour or New England with friends and stayed for 3 nights. Although a thirty minute walk into Bar Harbour, there is a shuttle bus from its sister hotel next door every 30 minutes. The bus is free, very convenient and drops you off in the centre of Bar harbour. It stops at 2030 so you will... More

Had a great weekend here. Room was clean and spacious and had a great view of the harbor. The receptionist was awesome -- provided great recommendations for restaurants and sights... Would definitely stay here again... One complaint though -- the bed... It was too soft for me; I like a firmer mattress... I travel quite a bit and have rarely... More

My first stay was in 1997. I was very impressed with the hotel, the pianist, and dining in the Rose Garden restaurant. The hotel and and pianist are still worth the trip. However the facility is under new ownership and some things have change in the interest of going green(in the words of the new GM). The dining experience was... More

This place was a very nice surprise after a disappointing stay at the Omni Bretton Woods Mt.Washington Resort. Nice large room, well equipped w/ all you expect, super-soft towels + bathrobes in premium quality. Perfect view at the ocean, kind service and a comfortable walking distance (15-20min) from the harbor. The numerous 4-star-AAA-diamond awards in the hall are just ok... More

I gave my husband a gift certificate for this hotel for his birthday. We stayed here with our 8 and 9 year old children last weekend, The hotel looks beautiful on the website, however, the Stenna Nordica building did not rise to the "elegant accomodations" that the hotel is described as having on the website. To begin, check in went... More
