This review is for the hotel only. We booked the hotel room through Expedia but the last room was one queen bed. Once we arrived, we were given a room at the cottage. Newly renovated. Very Nice. Spotless. Quiet and ideal for a couple needing a quick night's sleep. Due to a hip issue and a number of restless nights, we asked Kim if there were any cancellations for two beds and discovered there was. We paid extra and got a choice of two rooms. One newly renovated for disabled or another room. Saved the room with the shower renovated for a wheelchair. Beautiful rooms. Spacious with a table and two chairs with two large beds. Spotless and again beautifully decorated. Kim is very accommodating to changes if possible. Would highly recommend. Did not eat in the restaurant but heard it was very good.

We stayed here the night before taking the ferry to Newfoundland, liked the accommodations, and stayed again upon our return from Newfoundland. The location is a 5-10 minute drive from the ferry terminal. The rooms are large, simply furnished, clean, and with everything you need, including microwave and refrigerator. Parking is easy. The food in the adjoining restaurant was really good!

Stayed the night in #4. Unimpressive from the outside - almost left without going in! but inside was beautifully decorated, newly painted, perfectly clean and very comfortable. It IS small but they've done everything that they could to make it very nice. Had dinner at the restaurant: service was exceptionally friendly and the food was good. We would stay at this Inn again.

A nice affordable small hotel right off the highway. Clean rooms. We stayed in a room that looked like it was part of a bungalow around back. A bit odd, but pleasant enough. Convenient location near the highway and affordable. I would stay here again.

In room attached to bungalow. It is fine but would recommend a fire alarm be added. Room is set up oddly. It needs table with two chairs rather than book case and foot stool. No place to sit if you eat in. Table over the air conditioner is weird as it seems to direct air right on the bed.

Beautifully clean rooms, very friendly staff. The restaurant is fabulous. Highly recommend. Beautiful views from the location into the Bras dor Lakes. Close enough to Sydney to make the drive in for shows. Easy access to Centre 200 etc. Rooms recently renovated, beds are great, best sleep I’ve had in months!

The staff at Kow's Inn were the very best with regard to the rooms & the restaurant. The breakfast was consistently excellent & always served in a cheerful manner. Our room was spacious, clean & very modern. There was no microwave, coffeemaker or sink in the room we had which would have been a plus. Overall, a delightful stay in a picturesque setting.

Was greeted by a lovely lady who checked me in without a hitch. Room was large, clean, quiet and close to the ferry. Shower was awesome, clean linens and ample hot water. Cable tv, wifi, and free coffee at breakfast. Two water bottles in room per day and a mini fridge.
Bed was new, and comfortable. Pillows were a little large, but personal taste aside, a good nights sleep at an affordable price.

I just keep coming back and so should you!

Being in a convenient location for my business trips helps but the icing on the cake is just everything else about it.

First of all, it's new, super clean, very quiet despite the highway and the most comfortable beds I have ever had in a hotel at even 2x the price.

There is also a restaurant attached with great views. The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and supper. Always busy and that's a good sign!

I have stayed here every two weeks all summer long, because of the rooms, the bed, the friendly service and because the other places just don't compare. See for yourself.

Stop in, stay. You won't be disappointed! I promise!
