We were just passing through and so didn't have a large expectation of the place but found the owners to be wonderful and incredibly helpful. We had a problem with the internet in our room and despite their best efforts, they couldn't fix it so we had to walk a few doors down to get on the wifi, not the end of the world when you have a stunning view to look at out the window. The restaurant they recommended for dinner was fantastic, good home cooked family food.

Good afternoon, thank you for taking the time to comment. We had the tech guys out here for 2 days replacing and fixing things, the wifi now works perfectly. We certainly appreciated your patience that evening and hope you visit us again if your in the area. All the best in your travels.

We stayed one night on our way to the NL ferry in July. The room was extremely clean and the owners went out of their way to be helpful and very friendly. The location allows for an excellent view of Kelly's Mountain and Great Bras d'Or. We sat out in the evening on the lawn chairs and enjoyed the spectacular landscape.

One of the advantages to the motel is that it is adjacent an excellent restaurant, Fitzgerald's. We had dinner there that night and enjoyed the food, the service and were impressed with the varied menu items.

Room Tip: We were in room one, next to the office which was very well appointed and very clean.

No different than many motels, but with a good feeling. Lovely view. Very pleasant owner who obviously loves the region. Big storm made the wifi iffy, but such is the weather of the north Atlantic. Maybe it is just the magic of Cape Breton, but I truly enjoyed staying here.

We stayed here after returning on the ferry from Newfoundland. There is a restaurant next door, Fitzgerald's, which was nice since nothing much was open in North Sydney. The rooms are a good size with free WiFi, flat screen TV, microwave, mini fridg & phone. The beds are comfortable and everything was clean. The next day we were planning to drive the Cabot Trail and this spot is conveniently located. All rooms face the road so there is road noise, most notably in the early AM when the trucks start their day.

Room Tip: All rooms face the road

We struggled to find somewhere enroute to stay whilst traveling through PEI and settled on Kelly’s View based on other reviews.

It’s a typical motel, a row of units on a hill and has a great view. The room and facilities themselves are clean and as you would expect. The decor is a little old fashioned but that is a personal preference.

The welcome is friendly and a good nights sleep was had. It did the job for one night.
