Reviewed 10 October 2016 via mobile

The room/suite was fine, but because it was October, the restaurant at the inn, the highly advertised Beggar's Banquet, as well as every other except one in Louisbourg had been closed. We were not made aware of this when booking nor when checking in. The fortress, the main reason for being in the area, had also reduced its offerings as...

The lovely room shown on the web page must have been a one of a kind in the building. Our room on the ground floor did have a large bedroom, in the same space as the kitchen and dining table. One of the front windows couldn't be opened because a screw had intentionally been half screwed in to prevent it,...

This is a great place to stay if your visiting the town of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia. The suites are about 15 minutes from the fortress and from our suite on the facing the water you could see both the fortress and the lighthouse. There is a restaurant on the property but it was closed for the season by the...

The location and view from the hotel was fantastic The room was clean and the receptionist was friendly. The down side is there are few eateries in the area and the hotel did not offer any breakfast. There was wifi available but no alarm clock. There was a fridge and microwave plus a few utensils. If you want a 2nd...

Point of View Suites thought of everything - comfortable bed, large room, large bathroom, clean, all the great little extras. The staff was very kind. Location was close to the Fort. We would definitely recommend.

I mainly picked this hotel due to its location. I visited the Fortress during the day and attended the Beggar's Banquet at the hotel for dinner / evening. The Fortress location is extremely close and worth visiting. The hotel is very easy to find. I will review the Fortress and Banquet in the attraction section. The hotel is in a...

We travelled for a one night stay on Labor Day week-end and had a fantastic night! Our room overlooked the water and we had a lovely balcony. The room/rooms were incredibly spacious and bright. We had a full kitchen and separate bedroom. Great choice for a family stay. Lovely staff!!

This hotel is unique. It is right on the water, across from the Louisbourg Lighthouse, and about 5 minutes from Fort Louisbourg. The rooms are nice, with wood floors and ours had 4 windows across the front of it. But the best thing is that the is where "The Beggars Banquet" is held. This is a FUN "Dinner Theater" with...

Some of the rooms had beautiful ocean views. Ours did not but we were very comfortable & liked this place a lot. We had a large tv, small fridge, queen size bed and 2 upholstered rocking chairs. The bathroom was very roomy. The breakfast was sausage or bacon, 2 eggs any way you like, 2 pieces of toast and coffee...

Pleasantly surprised with this place: large room overlooking the water with a great view, very near the Fortress, where I was headed in the morning, and a very reasonable rate. Easy and plentiful parking. Would have liked to spend another night there. And the view at night -- the stars, the sound of the ocean, the lighthouse -- was a...
