“Room with a View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Recently, we had the pleasure of staying at this oceanside hotel. We had a suite on the 2nd floor with a gorgeous view of the ocean on a night with a full moon shining across the water. My son had ordered a bottle of wine for our anniversary and when we arrived it was in a bucket of ice on the table with two glasses. A member of the staff had written a lovely poem and left it in scroll form beside the wine. What a kind thought! We had a lovely dinner in the dining room and breakfast in the morning. Everything was exceptional. Thank you so much.

I enjoyed my stay. The location is as close as you can get to the fortress of Louisbourg, and it is right on the ocean. Breakfast was nice, and the staff were very friendly, and made you feel right at home.

I stayed on a first floor room, not facing the ocean (room 14). It was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. It was a cold, rainy night when I arrived, and the room was a little cool. Overall, it was great place to rest your head as you are travelling through Cape Breton.

Overlooking Louisbourg Harbour; a wonderful place to stay while visiting historic Louisburg. Go for a seond floor suite (Room 11), which actually looks and feels like a suite. First floor suite we were first assigned had two queen beds in one room - not very suite-like. Second floor Room 11 had a balcony and the view. Nearby beach is great for searching for sea glass and stones. Restaurant on-site and it was one of the few breakfast places open in Louisbourgh during our stay. The higher up the better to reduce noise from heavy footed guests above.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a btter view and provide less chance of noise from heavy footed guests above you.

This place is a great place to stop and to stay for a few days. Our room was full equipped, overlooking the ocean, The place was spotless clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. From the day we checked in to the day we checked out, we felt more than welcome by the staff and we had a great time. We would recommend this place for people that would like to have a nice rest, with a beautiful scenery and a nice room. Thanks to every one at the Point of view for making our stay a memorable one. We will definitively come back if we ever visit NS again.

Room Tip: They are all the same and they are all great and all have a fantastic view.

Came here on a blustery, rainy day. Wish we could have enjoyed the balcony. A beautiful spot right on the ocean. Huge rooms, with complete kitchen area. Very clean and well equipped room. Easy to find and close to the fort.

My husband and I stopped here on our honeymoon and this was by far the highlight of our trip. The accommodations are beautiful...right on the water with a lovely view of the fortress Lousibourg. You could not ask for a better view. You can attend dinner "The Beggars Banquet" at the main building where they dress you in 18th century garb. This is not to be missed. Your meal is served in an outdoor style covered barn with musical entertainment, story telling and a funny old hag running around. Really a lot of fun. Kids love it too! You have the choice of four entrees. I had the snow crab and my husband had the lobster, with some good old fashioned hot toddy's to boot. This was by far the most fun and the best meal we had on our trip. If you are travelling to Cape Breton make this place your first stop. Wonderful people and a wonderful time :)

Room Tip: You may pay a bit more but get an ocean view room..well worth it if you want to sit out on your balc...

Thank you for the accolades. We're glad that you took good memories of us while honeymooning in Cape-Breton. We love sharing the beauty of the ocean and the view of the fortress of Louisbourg with our guests.
Being as our season for the Beggars Banquet is over, we now serve dinner in our eighteen century decorated dining room. The food is the same, but we've lost the wench and music. We're always sad to see a season end but we have many great memories of our playtrons which carry us to the next season. Thanks for sharing your experience.

We weren't at all disappointed in our stay in the oceanview 2nd story room. We could see the fort from the deck and enjoy the harbor. The room was so clean and bed very comfortable. The room was spacious with a kitchenet which we didn't really need but the fridge came in handy for making ice for our next destination. The fort was awesome BTW. Price was up there but well worth it in the end. (and I am comparing to other prices in our 2 week travel)

Room Tip: get the oceanview
