Highland Motel
Ranked #12 of 13 Sydney B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 29, 2011

Within 5 minutes (driving distance) of the Newfoundland Ferry, this small motel is a perfect place for recuperating after the crossing, or preparing for it.

There are approximately 20 units, they are spacious (2 double beds with room to walk around the beds), have microwave, refrigerator, cable TV and air-conditioning.

The decore is dated, but the units are very clean.
Some of the bathrooms have vintage 50s sink and tub, and all have been restored (or maintained) to their pristine look.

The motel may not look like much from the outside, but is very comfortable and has lots of storage and the price is very reasonable.

The owner is very sympathetic, speaks both French and English, has complimentary coffee in the lobby at breakfast time and is helpful in directing you to local attractions or providing information.

There is wireless internet available in the lobby.
