Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I travel for work and stay at Hearthstone Inns whenever in Sydney NS. Staff is friendly and always courteous. (with a refreshing sense of humour I might add- that's a good thing) They offer some "themed" rooms, which is neat, onsite restaurant and lounge which is reasonably priced. Breakfast is included with your stay.

There is much offered at this hotel. First, there is the staff who are very friendly and efficient. Second, the rooms are quiet and comfortable. There are renovations going on but they do not disturb the guests. The results are impressive in guest rooms and common areas as they capture a little bit of Cape Breton culture and beauty. Third,...

We have had an excellent experience here. The room is clean, well furnished and quiet. The beds are wonderful! Tommy, the maintenance man, showed us the special rooms they have created showcasing different aspects of Cape Breton's history and personalities. Absolutely amazing rooms! Jonathan, the front desk young man, has been a great source of help and information. The indoor...

To begin we checked in to what we were told would be a floor that our group(team) was staying. We were given a room on the first floor(basement) upon unlocking the door the smell of mold was so strong. My daughter has allergies so we requested a new room. The front desk staff made us feel like we were imposing...

A couple of friends and I took our five year olds swimming the Hearthstone Inn pool last week. I noticed that it was not obvious where the shallow end (which is 3 ft) stopped and the deep end began (which is 5ft) but the kids were mostly playing near the entrance to the shallow end. After a while, my daughter...

I stayed here for one night with my dad before our drive of the Cabot Trail. The hotel is in a good location in Sydney on Kings Road, close to downtown and the big shopping area.
