We had a spacious room, with a good bed. The hotel was pleasant, though there is some road noise if your room faces the road. The restaurant at the hotel was good, and the service was attentive. It is a good hotel for a stop on the road during your travels.

We stayed here one night on our first day in Cape Breton. Front desk service was very friendly. Our room was on the ground floor so conveniently accessible both from the parking lot and from the interior of the hotel. Bed and pillows were comfortable. The room was at the front of the building so there was some noise from the road. Hotel restaurant was great. We would stay here again.

I have booked a King Bed Room, on the third floor. The room was big and quiet (rear side). The bed was firm, yet really comfortable. Most importantly, the employee at the Front Desk was fantastic : COVID grumpiness ? NOT HERE !! Great service, with a smile and humour in prime. The hotel has a good restaurant, a swimming pool, a training room (well equipped) so for me, it's a no-brainer next time i'll be in Port Hawkesbury.

I cannot say enough about this place. The hospitality, suites, cleanliness and restaurant are beyond almost anything we've seen. The managers, Donna and Robert could not be more receptive and pleasant, as were the staff. They could not be more accommodating or do enough to make our stay any better. They gave us an excellent room for our needs. The restaurant was far beyond our expectations. When the staff dines here on their time off, that sums it. Exceptional meals at excellent prices. Most of the clientele are from the local area and the suppers are very busy. The waitresses were so pleasant. We only got Melanie's name, but they were all exceptional. Although we travelled across the island, we ate all of our meals here. It was so wonderful to discover a place like this to stay. You will not do better.

The idea of the hotel with a hot mineral tub in every room is great, we liked it VERY much. Great restaurant with great service! Came there a second time and noticed that the staff became literally less polite and rude sometimes (the first time I was surprized how good the staff was). Asked my room and hot tub to be cleaned, got promise, NOTHING was cleaned, they just brought pack of towels (all same size) and a bag of amenities, dropped on one of the beds. Even garbage wasn't taken out. Friends were staying in the room next to us, they got better luck with the garbage, but the trash bin was left on the chair - was it a statement?? Also, the description claims that the room was recently renovated: may be true, but apparently, it was done with low skilled workers and low-quality materials: tiles not properly aligned/popping, nickel gone from bathroom fixtures exposing bare brass, etc. The renovation ambition was good but the execution lacked in quality and skill.

Thank you for the review but I think you have the wrong hotel. This is located in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and we do not offer hot tubs in any room here. So sorry for the mix up - thought you should know so you can post it on the appropriate hotels review.
