We stayed in a one bed open concept unit.....and it was wonderful!
We were late in the season so sadly missed the Bangers and Mash dining experience!
The place was ready promptly and very clean.
We had an amazing view of the Fort as well as a small island! Was stunning!

Very friendly and open hosts! The house is separated from the dining room. The rooms mainly overlook the ocean - aweseome! Waking up and watching fishermen is very relaxing. The rooms were clean and spacious. Breakfast staff was very nice!

I have not stayed anywhere else in Louisbourg but I doubt there is a better place to stay . Located right on the water , our room overlooked the bay and the Fort in the distance . The room was one of the nicest in which we stayed on our three week trip to the Maritimes . It had 2

This hotel is clean, bright and cozy, you just love it the moment you step into the room. The receptionist is friendly, polite and professional, at the same time she gives you that personal attention by remembering your room number each time you see her.

Thank you for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Taking part in the Beggars Banquet is also a highlight of the day for many of our guests and it is wonderful that you were able to take part. We enjoy the performance each and every night as much as the guest's do. We do hope you will visit us again soon. Cheers!

We chose this because it has a view of the fortress and the entrance gate is literally just down the street. Be warned it doesn't have air conditioning. We found our room a little beat up and in need of some TLC, but it was clean and bright once we opened the shades, which were a

Does breakfast come with the standard room rate?
Breakfast is NOT included in their rate when we were there in August. The rooms do not have A/C. Our room was ocean front. But on either side of us were rooms. Thus the only circulation we had was from the sliding door on the porch. And the room was VERY VERY hot and humid. Way too humid. We used a fan to suck in cooler evening air. Suggestion----make sure that your room has a wall window that opens. That may improve your sleep comfort. Oh, I think that for n $8 they provided breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed the "Beggar's Dinner." Although our room had a frig and small microwave, there was no clock, no hair conditioner, and no luggage rack. If you tour the Fortress, find the Point of View's owner in her military costume.

I live in nova scotia and my ac goes on near the end of June and stays on till the end of September.
We were there the end of July. The days were warm and the nights tended to cool off nicely. The suites are right on the water so there was always a slight breeze off the water that does drop the temperature a bit. I am not sure if they have ac, but did't need it.

Am I reading correctly that they do not have air conditioning? Is it needed in July? Being from Florida I can't imagine not having a/c in July.
I understand that in Florida you do need a/c's for comfort and sometimes survival but here in a more northern area we have a limited need for that convenience. We thought long and hard about putting a/c's in our units and opted to allow our guest the opportunity to let the cool ocean breeze refresh them and their rooms. We maybe have a few days where an a/c would come into use and for that reason we have portable units we install on request where needed, though we believe that would take away from the experience by the habit of shutting out the beauty and sounds of the ocean. We are in the later part of June and we are still in need of turning on the heat.
