Prices were very reasonable - Chef's special was Appetizer, Whole Lobster main course, dessert and coffee for $39. You also can go to the Lobster Pound or Shack on the property and buy... More

Our two-room cottage plus a nice terrace offered a superb view of the bay and harbour, Well equipped with a kitchenette we enjoyed our stay very much. A bonus was the report's restaurant where we enjoyed very good meals - including lobster. Tucked away from the main road it's quiet but still very conveniently located

We stayed one night in a one bedroom cottage. The room was clean and spacious for the 2 of us. The kitchenette was perfect to prepare our own breakfast after travelling for several days it was nice to feel more at home. The sunset from our little deck was beautiful. We walked across the road to the beach and collected... More

The setting is great with broad vistas of the sea. We had read about Steak and Ale night and planned our vacation to arrive that day. The music was loud and the crowd raucous with fun. There is little around besides the hotel restaurant so we would have had to do some cooking if we had more time there. The... More

The Island Sunset was an amazing find! We were so pleased with the accommodations and the location. The restaurant is incredible and the beach is beautiful. If we return to Cape Breton we would certainly stay here again. It is central to the best areas on the island.

Beautiful clean room. Nice kitchenette. Comfortable furniture. It was very relaxing and welcoming with several eating choices nearby. The kitchenette makes it possible to prepare simple food and all dishes etc are here for you. There is a small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and oblong glass top double burner stove. The only reason for 4stars and not 5 is the air... More

The Island Sunset is a great place to stay in Cape Breton. It is close to many amazing beaches and is central to Inverness, Cheticamp and Margarer. It is the nicest place to stay in the area. The Seaside restaurant and Lobster Pound are great as is the Belle View restaurant.

Great place to stay along the Cabot Trail. Great views and everything we needed in a room. Kitchenette was well equipped. Nice big bathroom and the location was excellent. It was a welcome change from some of the other logdging we had encountered along the trail.
