“Great service and location.”
Reviewed July 10, 2011

Room 1. Besides the creaky door and mattress the noisy heater and the stomping from upstairs it was nice and clean but not a great value. No where near as spectacular as the room in the brochure.
Fun dinner.

Everything was excellent, beyond expectations:
great beds
modern super clean rooms
owner, manager and other staff went out of the way to make everything run perfect.
Great Location ocean view( less than 300 feet from water. No problem to hear the surf)
Outstanding lobster supper (huge portions) Feast. Was a special add on with room which also included bacon and egg breakfast.

FAR BEST PLACE EVER!!! Anyone who rates this as poor should just stop travelling because they are WAY too picky!!!! I have travelled across Ontario and trust me have seen some pretty bad accomodations!!! This is FAR from being poor:) I would rate Point Of View one of the best places on Cape Breton Island! Highly recommend as a vacation destination for your family to experience the East Coast warm and welcoming feeling this place offers. As soon as you enter the suites , the staff is very friendly and accomodating, sites all around you, lighthouse to visit, delicious dinner, clean rooms, gleaming hardwood floors, SMOKE FREE! The fresh smell of the ocean breeze that lingers through the accessible patio doors makes you feel you never want to leave! The owners are very pleasant and show tremendous hospitality... THANK YOU FOR AN PLEASANT STAY POINT OF VIEW!

We traveled as a family. We have 2 children, and this was a great 2 night stay, and minutes away from the Fort Louisbourg site. We booked the largest suite they had, with 3 queen beds and 1 separate bedroom. The owners also have a restaurant, and offer a very reasonably priced breakfast there. Simple but good.

Also, they offered the delivery of a very great dinner to our room, and for a great price we got a Lobster dinner in our room. This was very welcomed since we have 2 young children that would have not let us eat in peace. The Lobster and side-dishes were delicious.

I also wanted to say that the staff at the front, and also the owner who was waiting on us were amazingly friendly. They were very conversational and went well above and beyond the service required. We were very happy with the Service.

The room was very clean and neat, comfortable bedding, full kitchen facilities, etc.

Ours was a very last minute 2-day stay in late Sept. but we were welcomed heartily to an efficiency suite with beautiful hardwood floors, gorgeous linens and a view of both the Fortress of Louisbourg and the site of the oldest permanent lighthouse in Canada!

This is an hotel/RV complex on the harbour where tides ebb and flow, and the rocks look like deep purple amythests. Accommodations in the hotel were lovely, spacious and included a 3 seater sofa and kitchen table and chairs in Country Style. The RV/Trailer setup seemed to provide planty of space for each vehicle.

The only drawback at the Point of View in late September was the necessity to pre-arrange meals in the cavernous dining hall. Meals were limited selections.
We were off-season, and perhaps they operate differently in-season.
