I mainly picked this hotel due to its location. I visited the Fortress during the day and attended the Beggar's Banquet at the hotel for dinner / evening. The Fortress location is extremely close and worth visiting. The hotel is very easy to find. I will review the Fortress and Banquet in the attraction section. The hotel is in a... More

We travelled for a one night stay on Labor Day week-end and had a fantastic night! Our room overlooked the water and we had a lovely balcony. The room/rooms were incredibly spacious and bright. We had a full kitchen and separate bedroom. Great choice for a family stay. Lovely staff!!

This hotel is unique. It is right on the water, across from the Louisbourg Lighthouse, and about 5 minutes from Fort Louisbourg. The rooms are nice, with wood floors and ours had 4 windows across the front of it. But the best thing is that the is where "The Beggars Banquet" is held. This is a FUN "Dinner Theater" with...

Some of the rooms had beautiful ocean views. Ours did not but we were very comfortable & liked this place a lot. We had a large tv, small fridge, queen size bed and 2 upholstered rocking chairs. The bathroom was very roomy. The breakfast was sausage or bacon, 2 eggs any way you like, 2 pieces of toast and coffee... More

Pleasantly surprised with this place: large room overlooking the water with a great view, very near the Fortress, where I was headed in the morning, and a very reasonable rate. Easy and plentiful parking. Would have liked to spend another night there. And the view at night -- the stars, the sound of the ocean, the lighthouse -- was a... More

The photos were amazing compared to the real place. It is just an ordinary fortress nothing extraordinary- we tried their bread and it was good but again nothing extraordinary. All the staff were friendly except for the lady serving us the bread -I think she had a bad day bec she would not even smile! There were re-enactment plays and... More

Great location close to Fortress Louisbourg. We had the family suite overlooking the ocean with a large balcony. Very clean, spacious, and comfortable. We also attended The Beggar's Banquet, located on site, with a 17 and 13 year old. The food was great and we were all thoroughly entertained. A perfect evening!!

Nice property with great views of the ocean. Be sure to get a room with a balcony that overlooks the ocean! Our room did not but was still OK. It was a nice size and clean. Hotel is close to the Fort (you could walk) and a short drive to the lighthouse and associated trails. Close to restaurants and shopping.... More

We probably should have tried to book the Master Suite, it looked much better in their glossy brochure than the regular suites whe we turned up in real life. Nothing was really bad but unfortunately it wasn't great either. Service was friendly, courteous and quick and was the highlight of the stay. Our room itself was clean enough but we... More

The Fortress of Louisbourg is a must-see on your trip to Cape Breton Island, and Point of View Suites is the perfect lodging while visiting there. The suites are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Be sure to ask for a second floor waterfront suite, and you will not be disappointed. We stayed in Suite #8, which afforded us a beautiful view... More
