We stayed here waiting for the ferry. Very close to the terminal and just overlooking the harbour. An older hotel but it was a good place to stay. A good restaurant is on site as well a nice bar/tavern. My room was spacious and clean. WIFI worked well but I found the TV prog

Nearest to the Newfoundland ferry. We stayed here both coming and going. Rooms and bed were very comfortable. The on site restaurant is far above average and reasonably priced. A bit hard to find - extra signage would help. We would stay again.

We stayed one night at Hotel North, North Sydney, en route from Newfoundland to Halifax. The rooms are along long hallways and what we appreciated, for carrying things to our room near the end, is they have more than the main entrance as access. There were additional doors alon

Does it have rooms suitable for honeymooners
Don't know either. But what I can tell you is that they were undergoing an extensive renovation when we were there in August 2015 as they are under new management. I would suggest you contact the hotel directly and find out of they have any pictures of newly renovated rooms that may be suitable for your needs. The restaurant has a lovely view and depending on time of year for your visit, they have a lovely veranda for eating outside or having drinks while overlooking harbor and city.

"Rooms overlooking the harbor can be requested at check in."
"Second floor a bit more quiet"
"We had a second floor room and never heard a sound."
"Check to ensure there's no running transport truck near the room. Don't hesitate to request another room if there's an odor, e.g. smoke."
"The ferry side rooms are a little larger."
