Burton's was a well equipped room, was clean and a beautiful spot to stay. Mel was very informative and had a "tuc shop" that was well stocked with snacks and drinks as well as videos to borrow. The local snack shack delivered food free of charge and had quite an extensive menu. This is located at the top tip of Cape Breton, well worth the trip. We sat outside and watched the beautiful sunset over the Atlantic Ocean (Bay of St. Lawrence) which was quite spectacular. The spot is quite peaceful.

The best part of this motel was the location overlooking Bay St. Lawrence - WOW! We wished we could have stayed longer to enjoy the area more. The rooms were also large, clean and comfortable including a kitchenette that we didn't have time to use but hope to if we go back.

This is the way to do the Cabot Trail. Take your time and stay along the way, With clean, comfortable accomodations and truly fantastic view we found the Sunset Motel to be an excellent choice at about the halfway point on the Cabot Trail. The owner was very pleasant and provided us with good information on the surrounding area. He also directed us to a lobster dinner ($12) put on by the community. If you want to go to the dock and buy a lobster the owner will cook it up for you. We'll be back!

We stayed here three nights in late June. Loved every minute of it. Hosts are fabulous - will do anything to help you out. Location is gorgeous - looking out over Bay of St. Lawrence. This is a real working town, not just a collection of tourist destinations. Room was plain but clean and everything we wanted. We drove all over the park and over to Ingonish, but always looked forward to turning up to the road to St. Lawrence Bay and Mel's little hotel with the warm hospitality and the million dollar view. Thanks for a great stay, Mel and Debbie. Have a blessed summer and hope to visit you again soon!

I booked this hotel based on its fantastic Tripadvior reviews, and agree wholeheartedly that it's without a doubt the best hotel on Cape Breton. There's few hotels that leave an impression for life, where you can be talking to someone 30 years down the road and remember the name / location / exact feeling of the place....Burton's is and will be on my short list. The views / sunsets are stir the soul, no words can do it justice. Just picture standing in a grassy field perched high above rocky cliffs, with the Gulf of St. Lawrence as your backyard, whales spouting and singing offshore. Simply majestic. Mel and Debbie are wonderful hosts and people. Mel kept me entertained for hours with stories and history about the area. They both scolded me (rightfully so) for not calling then ahead to secure some lobsters for a dinner (a mistake I will not make in the future!). The rooms are huge, tastefully decorated, and clean to the point that you can eat off the floors. Mattress / pillows were the most comfortable I slept on while on a 11-day trek through the maritime provinces. Open the windows at night and let the cool ocean breezes rush through and lull you to sleep. Keltic Lodge gets all the hype in the area and does have great views, but Burton's offers better views (in my opinion) with incredible sunsets, and all the personal touches that the bigger places lack. If you don't end up taking up their offer to boil lobsters for you, drive to the Rusty Anchor restaurant (about 35 minutes) for more world class views and very good food.
