Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a single kind room and this was by the far most comfortable sleep I've ever had in a hotel. If you're in Yarmouth then I would definitely recommend this hotel. It also has a really great view of the harbour.

Wonderful accommodating staff! We used this hotel when arriving from Portland, Maine, and going back home to the states 2 weeks later. They were kind enough to have food prepared at 11:30 pm because we were not arriving from our long drive until 12 am from PEI. No where else was open except McDonald's and Subway...Ycch. We truly appreciated the... More

Our room at the Hotel was very nice if you are on the third floor or above they are still renavating the second floor and it needs a lot of work. They have a beautiful park across the street,but I would not go at night the city needs to check what goes on there. I have to say I was... More

Best hotel in Yarmouth - yet has significant room for improvement. Friendly staff. Hotel needs some renovations. Free Wi-Fi -good speed. Restaurant and bar in hotel. Food is mediocre at best. Parking is limited to several small lots each further away than the previous. Do not drink the tap water.

Proximity to ferry terminal is excellent. That said this is a bare bones hotel reminiscent of the 1950s & 70s with minimal upgrades along the way. Furniture looks to be recycled from other hotels that were upgrading. The beds are lumpy and sheets scratchy. The bathroom is serviceable but compact and be prepared for deep knee bends using the toilet.... More

Pros - 10 minute walk to the ferry, good internet Cons - Overall, the hotel looks like it received an update in 1982. The carpets were stained, the wall covering had scotch tape as "repairs", the furniture was out dated. The bed was lumpy. No in room safe. If I had a chance to do it again I would stay... More

It was relatively clean but for the mold in the shower and the peeling wallpaper . If there was another "good"place to stay in the area I would stay there. We were booked into the hotel by the ferry company that brought us into Yarmouth

This hotel is an older building, but has been well kept and maintained. Staff are very pleasant. Pool and lounge are both open until midnight. Great location for walking around Yarmouth, or if you are coming in or going out on the CAT ferryl

After biking for days, the beds and pillows were delightful. Centrally located and easy walk to dinner and the Cat-Ferry. Staff worked very hard. Their breakfast was fast and the portions were huge! Thank you for making the end of our trip pleasureable.
