“The very best place in atlantic Canada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Came here after three weeks of touring the atlantic provinces. And then: The most beautiful scenery you can imagine, hospitality far above average, clean and big room, a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Really about nothing to improve.

We stayed two nights so that we could visit the Fortress at Louisbourg and also attend the Men of the Deeps concert at the Playhouse and the Beggars Banquet on the property.
The location was on a small bay, looking across to the Fortress. At daybreak, I watched lobster men go out to check their traps. We had a comfortable porch for relaxing.
The room was huge with many windows providing terrific views and pleasant breezes. There were a table and chairs, a large wardrobe, a large digital TV with lots of stations, a clock radio and a fan.The beds were very comfortable. There was a small refrigerator with a freezer compartment, a good coffee maker, wine glasses and corkscrew, mugs, water glasses, and some utensils, plus coffees, teas, etc. The bathroom was nicely appointed and had good quality amenities.
We attended the Beggars Banquet which was so much fun. We were dressed in colonial garb, ate a sumptuous dinner and were entertained with music and stories. A wench came by to chat with us, too.

Book the package deal with the Inn that includes one night accommodation for two PLUS two tickets to the Beggar's Banquet PLUS breakfast for two the next morning! This is a must do if you are going to Louisbourg. We had a suite with a water view that was spectacular ... the Beggar's Banquet was exceptional ... great fun and entertaining with great food and the "hostess" very knowledgable ... I'm just sayin :) I won't say any more so as to not give away any secrets of the evening and ruin any of the great surprises in store for you other than the food and service was exceptional and the entertainment is priceless! If we every have the opportunity to return to Louisbourg we will definitely do this again ... and again ... and again if we are so fortunate to do so!

Room Tip: I can't remember if the ocean view rooms cost a bit more or not but so worth the few dollars if...

We stayed at the Point of View Suites after visiting the Louisbourg National Park. It is within walking distance to the Park. Check in is at the office which is separate from the Suites. This location also has an RV Park. We were able to park right in front of our suite number. The suites are relatively new, very clean, and good size. We had a standard queen bed suite. It came with a fridge, coffee maker and small table to eat at. Sheets smelled and felt fresh which was good for a night's sleep. Bed was a little firm for me, used to a softer bed with a pillow top. Towels were comfortable, smelled fresh from the wash, good supply. We left early in the morning and did not have to worry until the office was open to check-out we were able to leave the key in the room as the doors automatically lock upon exit. They offer a dinner here and a breakfast, we did not eat here so can comment on the food but it is available. http://www.louisbourgpointofview.com/

Room Tip: Ask for a suite on the main level so you do not have to carry your suit cases to the second floor.

We stayed here two nights on our honeymoon trip. Linda was a super sweet lady. She seemed to genuinely want us to have a great experience with them. She got us a bottle of champagne specifically for the occasion and it was waiting for us on ice when we arrived. We made ourselves a nice quiet dinner and had the champagne in our insuite kitchen. The champagne was delicious.

The rooms have everything you could need and are very clean and well maintained. The view from the balcony is amazing. It was so nice going to sleep listening to the ocean. I don't remember the last time I slept that well.

We only stayed here for one night but could have spent a week. We had the ocean front cottage #8. It's an upstairs suite, beautiful, sunny and clean. Owners are obviously proud of the cottages. Everything is nice and neat. Had dinner in the dining room. A lovely meal served by very welcoming hosts. Morning coffee on the balcony was peaceful and quiet, with only the sounds of crashing waves on the beach. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will definitely stay here again if we're back in NS. Thank you for being here!

We found this hotel on tripadvisor while planning our road trip to the coast. This hotel certainly deserves the excellent rating it gets. We reserved a room and also tacked on the dinner option that they offered. The options are choices from their "Beggar's Banquet" which I understand is held daily through the summer months. It includes the salad, soup, dessert and your choice of lobster, snow crab, haddock or roasted chicken. We choose the lobster because we are rookies at dismembering and eating a whole lobster. Tom, the owner/operator introduced to our live lobsters and 20 minutes they were on our plates ready for eating. Julie, who took our reservation, checked us in to the hotel and served the dinner, was an excellent teacher for the eating techniques. We were even brave enough to try whole lobster again when we got back home.

I should mention the room we had. It was on the upper floor overlooking the water. It had a small balcony and the room was like a fully equipped studio apartment. And the bed was comfortable. At the time of our visit there was one other visitor because it was just before the high season started. It made it very pleasant for us.

We highly recommend this property. And thanks again to Julie.
