We treated ourselves to the Harbour Loft; a lovely spacious suite with two sitting areas, a huge soaker tub, a big bathroom with two sinks (much appreciated each morning!) and a very comfy bed. Yes, the harbour is a working harbour but that did not detract from our enjoyment of the room. As expected for a heritage property, and much like in small European hotels, there is no elevator. Baggage must be brought to the upper floors via an external staircase. This wasn't a problem for us, but might be a consideration for elderly guests. The Inn is a ten minute drive from the Fortress of Louisbourg. We planned our visit to arrive in the afternoon, visit the Fortress the next day, stay the 2nd night and then begin our drive to Cape Breton; worked perfectly. The breakfasts at the Inn were plentiful and delicious. We had two dinners in Louisbourg, One at the Spoondrift Cafe which is a two minute walk from the Inn and another at the Bothy at North Star. Both excellent. We're very happy to highly recommend the Inn.

From our extremely comfortable room, two excellent breakfasts and convenient location, we knew we'd made the right decision. Very convenient for the Fortress at Louisbourg and two wonderful restaurants are a short walk away. Would recommend this place without hesitation.

Louisbourg Harbour and Heritage Inns I understand are operated by the same owners. In August 2003 we stayed at the Heritage Inn. The best place we stayed our entire trip to Nova Scotia!! The rooms are clean and nicely appointed with antiques. The bed wonderfully comfortable, rooms large, bathrooms large and breakfast excellent. We payed $120 and it was well worth it. Located in downtown Louisbourg we were able to walk to dinner and the local theatre for a tremendous 2 1/2 hour show by local musicians. Would we stay again: ABSOLUTELY!!

The first thing I need to do is admit that we didn't see that there are check in times set for this Inn. We arrived later than the times set, and when learning of our mistake said that we were sorry for our oversight. We took responsibility for our mistake. It wasn't intentional. Nevertheless, I was treated to 2 scoldings - one when we arrived and then a more extended harangue the next morning. Even after admitting our mistake and apologizing repeatedly, the owner continued to harass me to the point that I no longer felt physically safe. This is never OK.

As we drove up, we could tell that the picture online must have been taken some time ago. The building needs painting as do the back stairs which you have to use to get luggage in the building. The view of the harbor is obstructed by ugly industrial buildings. We were put in room 1. It is a nice sized room with a sitting area. Bed was good. Unfortunately, the bathroom was tiny- the smallest sink I've seen and there was mold in the shower. There was only one other set of guests and they were put in the next room. Why? They got up earlier than we did and the running water in the bathroom sounded like it was in our room. It was also noisy at night with the wind blowing. We went to the owner's cafe in town for dinner. It is just one year old and the food was good. Breakfast at the Inn was very good. The town is depressed - not too nice to walk around.
Although the reservation print-out said there was a tv in the room, there is no tv on the property. This was a big disappointment for us as we really wanted to see a sporting event. The owner was very understanding and was gracious in refunding our next night's stay so we could get to a place with a tv. We appreciated his understanding.

This is an excellent choice for a stay in Louisbourg. We had a queen bedroom. It was spacious and had several chairs, coffee maker, mugs, wine glasses, and a fridge on the floor for guest use. The room and bathroom were clean and modern, and charming. It's a great location down by the water. Breakfast was included, but not at the inn. It was at a nearby restaurant, the Foggy Hermit, and you could choose whatever you wanted from the menu. The outside needs some paint, particularly on the trim and railings, but don't let that deter you. I highly recommend it..

The Inn is a great place to stay. The location is wonderful, you can look out over the Fortress or watch the fishing boats. The place is nicely decorated and very personal and the staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are well appointed and the beds are comfortable. The breakfast is also very good. We would recommend it.

We love Cape Breton and come here annually, always staying at the Louisbourg Harbour Inn. We hate packing and unpacking, so we use the Inn as our home base while we explore the island. All the Tripadvisor reviews are correct...the Inn is beautifully appointed with fabulous breakfasts and an amazing host, Parker. We have found through the years that Louisbourg is the quaint little town that we "city folk" love for our getaway. Below is a listing of things we have done while staying at the Inn.

Things we have done in Louisbourg or within a few miles:
1. Fortress of Louisbourg
2. Great walking trails with amazing scenery
3. Playhouse with wonderful Cape Breton talent
4. Kennington Cove (sand beach and picnic area).
5. Louisbourg Light House

Thinks we have done within a 30 minute drive
1. Explore Sydney
2. Cossit House
3. Miner's Museum and tour (we highly recommend this) in Glace Bay.
4. More great walking trails

Things we have done within an hour drive
1. Explore Baddeck
2. Tour the Alexander Graham Bell Museum (also highly recommend this)
3. Englishtown Ferry
4. Start of the Cabot Trail
5. Puffin tours and whale watching tours
6. More great hiking trails

There is much more to do...just wanted to list a few that we have done. Also, of note, throughout the years, Parker is the one who recommended many of them to us as he grew up in Louisbourg and the Inn is actually his childhood home. As long as he is running the Inn, we will continue to return. We never get tired of the charm of Cape Breton.

Stayed here with my parents for two nights. The rooms are very clean, lovely, cozy and warm. Parker (and staff) provided great hospitality, giving us lots of ideas of things to do in the area. The breakfasts were just amazing. Two thumbs up!

My wife and I stayed here for only one night....unfortunately! We would have loved to have stayed 2 nights, however we had a prepaid package in Baddeck. We had a wonderful stay, went to the fortress in the day, and walked across the street to the playhouse for an intimate concert that evening. The rooms are exceptional; clean, comfortable and quite! The breakfast cooked by Parker (the friendliest innkeeper ever!) was the best B and B breakfast the both of us ever had!
We will be back!
