Very clean. This is a small Inn, well located downtown Sydney. Self serve breakfast with cereals, toast , yogurt etc. Friendly host. Exceeded our expectation. Will certainly book again if we head that way again.

    On web site for Inn they state one price and charge additional $10 nitely saying they hadn't updated their site. Also breakfast was to be included and are still using Covid to avoid providing that without a reduced price stated anywhere. Also hot water fluctuated from none to little even after complaint to front desk. Misrepresentation go elsewhere

    This is a very old building and it is not in very good repair. No elevator and several flights of stairs. The staff offered to carry our bags up. The room was small but comfortable except there were issues with hot water in the shower. The plumbing and electrical probably need to be redone. I didn’t feel entirely safe. Great location, downtown and across the street from the harbour.

    Room tip: Free Parking available behind the inn.

    I cannot say enough good things about Linda! She went above and beyond to make our stay great. We got lost getting there. She gave excellent directions and even waited on the street to wave us down. She is a very friendly and sweet woman.

    This is a charming inn with loads of charm and service. The room we had was quite well appointed with modern touches while maintain the historic charm. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a help yourself/make yourself continental type. Excellent location within walking distance of the cruise ship harbour, excellent restaurants and the downtown main strip of Sydney. Parking is a bit of an issue. We got a spot but there aren't many.

    This is a bit different - there are no onsite staff, but they can be there in minutes. Parking is limited to two spaces in front of the hotel and a couple in the back. Breakfast is available, coffee was good. Remember to hang the sign outside your door if you need housekeeping - it is not automatic. Wifi was good. No elevator, so prepare to take your luggage upstairs. A few restaurants are in walking distance, as is the downtown area. Stayed here and visited Cape Breton Island, but it is an hour just to get to the Cape Breton trail. Short drive to Louisbourg.

    Room tip: Get a room facing the side street to decrease noise.
