I am new to the world of Bed and Breakfast travel, but I must say my five night stay at the Gathering House B&B was absolutely wonderful. The hosts, Jean and Ken, were so very welcoming, resourceful, and friendly that I felt like family and not a guest at all. Their home is a beautifully and lovingly restored Victorian house over 200 years old (240 years old in the original part of the house), filled with antiques, Jean's own needlepoint works of art, quilts, linens, and décor that all have their own story to tell. A step back in time! The bedrooms were very clean and very comfortable, bathrooms very clean with great water pressure in the showers, and all linens beautifully laundered and of excellent quality. Jean is a fantastic cook, and each breakfast was absolutely delicious, a different feast each morning, excellent coffee! The Gathering House is located in the heart of Sydney, yet sits perched among tall trees alongside an inlet called Wentworth Creek; a lovely park with water fountains, ducks, and a children's playground. An oasis in the middle of town! We spent several hours sipping fresh lemonade on their huge wrap-around porch, chatting, and enjoying the early evening hours together. When I am back in Sydney again, I will be staying at the Gathering House! Thank-you Jean and Ken for a wonderful stay at your B&B! (I just wish I took photos to share with you!)

We came to Sydney looking for quiet and convenient accommodations for one night before heading to Louisbourg. We couldn't have made a better choice. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was big and we had our own bathroom with shower, which was great after a long drive. The location was very convenient and allowed us to walk to an excellent restaurant recommended by the owner. And we were sent off with a delicious breakfast. HIghly recommended!

It took us an hour and a quarter to find this place, even after getting directions at the Sydney Information Location. The street off Kings Rd, which was highlighted, ends after one block, for about 1/5 of a kilometer, and then picks up on the left to what appears to be an entirely different street. When the owner was called on the phone, no one answered; this was when we were a half block away, The room was ok, but stuffy, and needed fresh air. The breakfast was very plain, the coffee was weak and seemed a cheap brand, and we paid the highest rate of all the B&B's- we stayed in onour drive around Halifax $115- Would not recommend.

The Gathering Place is a well-preserved Queen Anne-style house in a quiet neighborhood a couple of kilometers from downtown Sydney. The B&B proprietors, Jean and Ken, are both retired from the RCMP. They're quite friendly, and several times invited us to socialize with them and their friendly dog in their living room. Jean is an excellent cook, and we greatly enjoyed breakfasts in their beautifully appointed dining room. Both were excellent sources of tourist information. The house is located across the street from a city park; while we were visiting, we watched a community theatre company rehearse a Shakespeare play.

My husband and I stayed two nights with two other couples. It was a wonderful, fun experience. the rooms were very clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. The owners were very hospitable and spent time with us telling us about the area and sights to see. We loved the big wrap around porch with the table and chairs as we could sit there in the evening eating, drinking and visiting with the owners. Highly recommend.
