The Cape Arundel is a place I have visited every year for more than a decade. It's beautiful, has great service and beautiful rooms and views. But DO NOT RESERVE ONLINE!! I reserved a queen room on the tripadvisor website. The room was described as a queen room with a garden view. When we arrived, we found out it is... More

Dear chiro85, Thank you for taking the time to share your review. I apologize for the confusion regarding the location of your room. It is noted on our website that the Old Fort Estate is a short drive from the Cape Arundel Inn, but I will certainly discuss with the marketing team if there is a clearer way to state... More

Wonderful weekend! Room clean, quiet and very comfortable at the Old Fort grounds. We certainly would recommend this place to anyone who enjoys hearing little birds singing when they wake up, who don't mind a 5 min walk in a beautiful area to go to breakfast (or if they do, they can use the shuttle service!) and who like peacefulness...

The room was very nice. The breakfast was good. The view was excellent. It was a quiet weekend before the busy season, so a lot of shops were not open. The ocean front view was great and the room was very comfortable.

We have never stayed at the Cape Arundel Inn until the end of April. I have only dined there in the past. This was an amazing find for a quick getaway overlooking the Ocean, just a short walk from the Bush Compound. The staff was over-the-top helpful, warm, fun, efficient.

Be careful when booking here! We just booked a night on line, and when calling back, with a question, we were told we didn't have a reservation. Our credit card had been charged with them, and they finally realized that they had in fact, double booked our room. They never said how it happened. I understand stuff happens but this... More
