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

I really enjoyed staying here. The rooms are nice. Mine had a full kitchen which is a great option. The place has lovely views, make sure you get an ocean view. We did not participate in the Beggars Banquet and i would like to have but the party i was with wasnt willing to spend the money. Comfy beds Updated... More

First, we did not have a suite with a water view. We may have enjoyed our stay more if we did. From the water side, you can see the Fortress of Louisbourg and/or the lighthouse. Our view was of the gravel parking lot and the dilapidated fish processing plant. The room was decent but the look of the exterior and... More

We're sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Though we do our best to ensure that your stay is satisfactory we do realize that we cannot please everyone. If you did not have access to an ocean view room due to being sold out we're sorry about that, however if you did get the room you chose you... More

We very much enjoyed staying here. We had Suite #2 which is an upstairs corner unit and thus was quiet and had a lovely view of the bay and the Fortress of Louisbourg. The space was very bright and clean, with a bedroom area and a kitchen/dining room with stove, fridge, microwave, kettle, pots, pans, dishes and cutlery, dishcloths and... More

We loved our stay at Point of View Suites! It has beautiful ocean views and you can even see the lighthouse shining at night. We were in an ocean front room with a little porch so we were able to hear the waves at night. The room was very clean and spacious. We had a kitchen with a full fridge... More

Sadly the website is misleading. It appears as a luxury place but is quite run down. The buildings need a coat of paint and though identified as a suite, the two bedrooms were actually one bedroom and the second 'bedroom' was really just a living area that had converted to a 'bedroom'. Some windows didn't open and/or fell out of... More

Thank you for voicing your concerns. We apologize for the state of the windows. The window broke during our open season and could not be replaced at this time. As for privacy, like all other establishments with main floor accommodations who have open windows the privacy would be compromised. Our staff work hard at whatever task they do and because... More

This is clean but slightly outdated inside. The location is perfect, close to Fortress Louisbourg, a convenience store and the Lobster Kettle. The staff is very friendly. Be sure to attend the Beggar's Banquet, held at the hotel. This place is worth staying at for the views alone!

I'm afraid we arrived too early in the season as there was nothing open in Louisbourg except the rooms. Really good accommodation would be great in season. And in a striking position overlooking the bay and the village.

We totally agree that we lack and fall short off season. We are affected by the by the fortress of Louisbourg. We are however hopeful that new management will correct the decisions of the past and give our visitors what they have traveled here to see. Thank you for your review of us. More

Good place to stay. Very close to historic site. Staff very pleasant. Facilities clean and functional. View room looked at historic site. Good breakfast. WIFI was really only available in office or restaurant. Signal too weak in room to connect.

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
