Margaree Riverview Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Margaree Forks
Reviewed October 1, 2011

i had looked up this hotel online, and decided to stay there on thursday nite, sept. 29/11. i really liked the place. it sits on a hill with wonderful views. i took the $99 room and was totally satisfied. hardwood floors, a good heating and cooling system, and windows you can open. i find hotels with sealed windows to have stuffy/stale air. everything was clean and orderly.
it is not the "lap of luxury". who cares. if you are on cape breton to fish, hike, or just tool around in your car this place is great. the only negative i had was no icemaker on site. not a big deal. i found the owner werner to be a considerate and interesting man. so two thumbs up!

Room Tip: take the hardwood floor king-sized bed room. i was in "23"

The Riverview Inn is situated ideally for starting a tour of the Cabot Trail or for fishing the Margaree River. If you're concerned with luxurious accomodations, this is probably not the hotel for you, but if you just want a clean, comfortable room to come back to after a day of enjoying the lovely Margaree Valley or nearby Cheticamp, you should be happy here. The Margaree Visitors Center is immediately across the road from the Riverview, and the staff there offered us excellent information and advice about places to visit. And if you're an angler, the manager of the Riverview, Mr. Bochhofer, is an experienced and knowledgable fisherman himself and very generous with his time. Furthermore, the price can't be beaten (as you'll know if you've done some comparison shopping in the area). You'll be able to save some money for renting fishing equipment or for paying the Highland National Park entrance fee . . . .

Room Tip: We were in a room quite far from the pool area, but the sound of children's play still carried i...

I read some of the negative reviews on this site about this motel and I can only surmise they stayed in a different motel!

The Hotel was very clean and the grounds were well kept. The room was simple but nice. I have stayed in places costing twice as much that gave me the same facilities as here.

A big plus for me was the wifi net access available in every room, very useful for uploading pics and keeping in touch with the unfortunates you have left at home

The owner is a nice German guy, who was more than happy to suggest places to go and things to see.

The motel is in a quiet area right on the Cabot Trail, a short drive to Cheticamp to the north and maybe 40 minutes to Baddeck.

I will be back again next year.

We stayed in Suite 1 for three days mid-August. The room was perfect! Spacious and comfortable. Two large bedrooms and two bathrooms. Jacuzzi bath and king bed for us, full bath and one double and one twin bed for the kids. Beautiful large living space and kitchenette, perfect for breakfast and packing up lunches for our days on the Cabot Trail! Amazing view from our large veranda with our morning coffee and evening sunsets. Kids loved the pool. We had a great time. Thank you Werner for making our stay so enjoyable! The McKenzie's, Charlottetown, PEI!

Room Tip: We loved Suite 1, hardwood floors and very spacious. Two bedrooms and two baths!
