Stayed here our final night in Cape Breton! Staff was very friendly, room was clean with comfy bed. The room was very quiet, this motel was more like a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was included and there was fresh fruit, homemade biscuits and cinnamon buns! It was excellent!

We spent one night at the Mabou River Inn. I booked a room with the private bathroom across the hall. Initially I was worried about it, but it was not an issue. The spacious and well equipped bathroom was right across the hall and had a private key entrance. The hotel room was very spacious with a comfy bed and... More

This inn was very nice and convenient to places in the Mabou area. Ron, the proprietor, is very involved in local fishing activities and can give advice and make recommendations for guides. There is a large deck with picnic tables outside at which you can eat lunch or just relax in the evening. A specialty is home made baked goods,... More

Very friendly family management and well kept rooms. The inn is looking sharp. Close to the famous Red Shoe Pub (but note that under 19s can't stay for the music, which starts late anyway -- at 9 pm). Good breakfast breads, cinnamon rolls and biscuits (but no protein). Rates seemed slightly high to me.

As we pulled into the driveway, we were immediately impressed. The property was so quaint, and the Inn was very impressive, so small townish. We registered in the restaurant, Sunday night was pizza night so the restaurant was open for that. We received a room on the upper floor. We had to pass through a common room, that had a... More

The Mabou River Inn was a pleasant visit for us. We were there for 1 (rainy) night. We enjoyed the nice accommodations and friendly staff. The breakfast was really good -- including freshly made cinnamon rolls and biscuits which were amazing and we were encourage to take a few for the road. Only problem was that our headboard didn't seem... More

We stayed at the Inn for one night. The room was big and clean. Breakfast in the morning was delicious! Fresh baked, homemade bread, biscuits and cinnamon buns, coffee, tea, juice and cereal. All staff were friendly and accommodating. It was a close drive to many different sights in the area. We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed for two night at the Mabou River Inn, and it was delightful. We stayed in an apartment room, with two bedroom, a kitchen and a living room. It also had a full bath, with a nice deep tub for soaking!!! The bedrooms were beautiful, with lovely bedding and crisp, clean sheets. Breakfasts were excellent! They offered a buffet... More
