#2 of 4 hotels in Cape Breton Island
At The Harbourfront is a couple of blocks from the ferry to Newfoundland and across the street from the bus terminal. For travelers touring Cape Breton: we are approx 45 minutes from the start of the Cabot Trail. We are near the city of Sydney with all its entertainment events and casino, about 45 minutes from Glace Bay's Savoy Theatre and Miners Museum, the Fortress of Louisburg and East Bay the home of Rita MacNeil’s Tea Room. Also not too far from the many golf courses and festivals that are part of the summer events in Cape Breton. North Sydney offers free entertainment at the wharf in the summer season. New North Sydney Arena and new Culture and Heritage Centre will add to the pleasure of those visiting the area along with the Sports Museum and Fossil Centre, nearby in Sydney Mines.

Thanks Abby I hope we have cured any concerns regarding the second bed by changing the mattress cover. When traveling I recommend if you have a concern of that type you let your host know. We are always pleased to do what we can to remedy things. Also for those following this be aware prices are always subject to change based on season, availability, etc. We try to keep our prices moderate compared to the local standard for the same amenities. Best to you in your future travels as I know you have more planned.

Heather was a lovely host! We stayed one night here as we were catching the ferry to Newfoundland. The room was small, but comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Heather made us feel very welcome, and breakfast was tasty!

Thank you for your insight and if you are here on a Sunday the finer dining is limited. The one that was booked and The Black Spoon both fit into the dining category. If you want family such as burgers and fish and chips there are some options of this type. Also I advise travelers to be aware in small towns such as this there is no late evening dining.and many close on Sundays. I am glad I was able to make your stay better and I hope you come back again when one of our festivals are on, they liven things up. All the best on your travels.
