“Old fashioned and nice”
Reviewed February 1, 2012

We spent three nights here while traveling with friends. Cheryl and her lovely mom are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is wonderful...the only improvement in breakfast would be fresh fruit compote. We were in one room for two nights and then had to switch to a different room for the third night because our original room was already booked. The second room was awesome and would be great for a family. It's large, has a single bed in addition to a queen and has a sun porch with another bed. Cheryl is a font of knowledge about the area not only for tourist related issues but, as it turns out, for a car related issue. She sent us to "Ralph" for a small car problem. He was great and fixed the car quickly so we could be on our way.

We stayed at the Chamber's Guest House on our way in to Newfoundland. This B&B, located in North Sydney, is at a walking distance of the ferry to Port-aux-Basques.

We weren't expecting too much because this was not our main destination. But what a Pleasant Surprise!

When we arrived, Cheryl had set up the balcony area adjoining our room so we could enjoy a relaxing moment after a long day drive. Arriving at the restaurant for dinner later than expected, we were informed by the owner that she had phoned ahead to make sure they would wait for us.

The next morning, after a good night sleep, we were amazed by the quality of her breakfast. Everything you can imagine in a B&B was sitting on the table.

Makes you want to stay in Nova Scotia and forget about the crossing.

We have had the privelege of staying in this B&B many times over the last 12 years and have always experienced a warm reception from Cheryl and enjoyed a comfortable and relaxing stay. We have recommended Chambers House to many friends and family and they all have received the same wonderful reception. Cheryl has created a feast for the eye's with her beautiful use of color and the stunning antiques that fill this home from top to bottom. Her breakfasts are the best that we have ever had in any B&B and we have stayed in many throughout North America and the UK, fresh baked goods, homemade preserves, delicious eggs all served on beautiful fine china, something you don't experience every day. Also A1 comfortable beds!
Thanks again Cheryl

The house is a feast for the eyes both inside and out. There are beautiful antiques everywhere you look...lamps, dishes, furniture...and yet the rooms have all the modern amenities.

We stayed in the guest room on the main floor with the private bath. The room is quiet, comfortable and beautifully decorated. A great idea would be to plan on using the entire house for a gathering of extended family or group of friends.

The veranda overlooks the specatular gardens. Sitting there takes you back to a time when the pace was more relaxed and is a wonderful place to unwind with a glass of wine or ice tea.

Cheryl was a gracious hostess and it is evident that she takes pride in providing personal service. She makes you feel very much at home.

Breakfast was plentiful and exceeded my expectations. The table setting was elegant.

Congratulations, Cheryl. You have a wonderful terrific guest house.

Room Tip: Main floor room with private bath is great for a couple.

From the lush, beautiful gardens that greet you to the old-fashioned parlor every part of this B & B is sure to please. Our room was large, spacious and the private deck was an extra special surprise. Cheryl is a gracious pleasant host who makes a fabulous breakfast. It was a wonderful treat to stay here and a great value. Will most definitely include it in future trips to Cape Breton.

We found this B&B on the web and what a lovely place. The owner Cheryl is warm welcoming and friendly. She referred us to the Black Spoon restaurant and what a great recommendation ( see my review on this restaurant). The B&B is just wonderful full of teasures and antiques, which we were jealous of, to admire. Cheryl had a great selection for breakfast and it was delicious. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Thank you Cheryl for your lovely hospitality

We stayed here one night prior to takingthe ferry. We had room 1 which shares a full bath with room 2, and has a double and a single. The matresses are older. Owner is friendly and helpful, the b&b has a nice outdoor veranda and is an easy walk to " downtown" North Sydney. Not a very nice town in our opinion, but it has a good restaurant, the black spoon. Breakfast is full, with eggs and cereal. Price/ quality is good.

chambersbb, Owner at Chamber's Guest House Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, July 9, 2011
The restoration of my 135 year old home is a constant work in progress.
I appreciate all suggestions and comments that my guests make as my goal is to be the best B&B that I can be . Since I am in the business of selling a good nights sleep, I feel I have to rebuke the statement that my mattresses are older. I have replaced three mattresses in the last year that I considered needed updating. The double pillow top mattress in room # 1 is an excellent quality mattress and very comfortable from what I have been told. The single daybed mattress ,on the other hand ,is a bit older but still clean and serviceable and this is the first time anyone has had an issue with it. It shall become a priority on my list. I am constantly working to improve in the attempt to provide the best possible comfort and service for my guest . North Sydney is an 100 year old little seaport town. All road traffic to Newfoundland passes through here and we are only an hour's drive from most of the major attractions on Cape Breton Island. t is quiet, the people are friendly and it is a nice place to live or visit. It is true that North Sydney has lost a lot of its former glory but we do have quite a nice water front development with board walks ,band shell and play area. There is usually entertainment at near-by, Indian Beach, during the evenings in summer months. We also have some excellent restaurants and you can sit and enjoy a ice cream on the water front after a delicious supper.
Thanks Cheryl Chambers
