My wife and I spent two wonderful nights in a second floor Point of View ocean view suite, taking in the Beggar's Banquet one night. We totally enjoyed the accommodation. Clean, neat, airy and light, we gazed at the Louisbourg fortress, the tides and the birdlife from the outdoor balcony, and the suite's couch. The suite's kitchen, fridge and stove... More

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experience of the Beggars Banquet. We have had and continue to have great success with it and still enjoy it nightly. We are known world wide and have entertain masses. We're proud and extremely thankful when we hear that our playtons had a good time. Thanks for sharing! More

Had a suite on the first floor overlooking the bay. The buildings could do with a coat of paint but the suite with fridge, tea/coffee, cooker was clean and comfortable. Very small bathroom and very little hanging space. The addition of a luggage rack and some wall hooks for outdoor clothes would make all the difference. But, ladies who ran... More

My friend and I stayed at the Point of View Suites on a whirlwind trip around Nova Scotia. I'm so glad we did! The ladies at the front desk were so welcoming and friendly. They made sure we had everything we needed and let us know that if we didn't we need only ask. The hotel is just minutes away... More

The view from this hotel was SPECTACULAR! It is right on the water almost across the street from the Fort, so it has a great location. The room itself was HUGE! 2 large beds and a great bathroom. The only drawback was that breakfast was not included and although inexpensive, was limited (2 eggs, meat, toast, coffee). We should have... More

This was a very pleasant experience. The rooms were excellent. Staff bent over backwards to help us and serve us and make sure we had a great visit. The staff have a great attitude.

We recently visited the fort at Louisbourg and stayed at the Point of View Suites. The accommodation is minutes from the historic site and thus provides great accessibility. The room was beautiful with an ocean view and a great view of the Fort. The staff was very welcoming and helpful. The Beggar's Banquet was an absolute delight. Providing the guests... More

The room was actually like a small apartment with an ocean view. Very clean, and stocked with dishes, pots and pans etc. Only thing missing was an ironing board. The beggars banquet is a must! Period themed for the 1744. Dinner guests are dressed in period costumes. Food was superb. The staff was extremely friendly and a lot of fun.... More

A great place for a family to stay for a few days while visiting the Fortress at Louisbourg. It's the closest accommodation to the historic site - about 3 km away. We had a large suite complete with fully equipped kitchen, comfy bed and charming balcony with a view of the ocean. Very clean with no carpeting, big pull-out couch,... More

We stayed at Point of View when visiting Fort Louisbourg. We found it overpriced, restaurant not open. Highly recommend you look at Sydney or Glace Bay as they have wonderful bed and breakfasts as options. We did not like anything about Point of View. TV did not work, Owners and staff not friendly.
