Simply fantastic! The entire Inn is very well kept with each room having their own theme. All the decorations are well... thought of, down to the smallest details. Very clean, very cozy. Best B&B we have ever stayed at. Not to mention the homecooked breakfast! We didn't know what to expect but this blew our expectations out of the water! Highly recommended, wish we stayed for longer. Thank you!read more

What a beautiful old home, character, lots of original features. David is a superb host, helping with your luggage and... reservations, providing history and just a friendly guy. Do not miss breakfast, tasty, good portions and the company of other guests in the dining room. We sat in the parlor outfitted with period furnishings and enjoyed a nightcap. Beds comfortable, large washroom, soaker tub. Would definitely recommend to anyone.read more

It's a beautiful house built in 1900, and the owner is especially kind. All the restaurants in the tiny town were... closed (permanently due to Covid), and the other two that survived were busy. 'They weren't accepting people'. So the owner brought up a plate of food for us to eat! Such kindness! Thank you very much!read more

It was around 1:30 pm when we got here and the door was locked, turns out the restaurant was opening up for the first... day this season. It was supposed to be open at noon. The door to the women's restroom was closed and I went to use the men's but they didn't have a toilet tissue dispenser which I thought was gross so I waited for the women's room. Why was it locked because there were two stalls in there! The paper towel dispenser was broken and the paper towel was sitting on the counter. Menu had no prices on it. I wish we asked for prices because when we got the bill, it was 90! Turns out the fish and chips were 25 each (we both ordered that), the vegan Curry pot pie was 18 and mussels around 18-22 and tiny portions. I put in 50 and went without dinner that night. This was the only meal I had all day. The man behind the counter said that the American dollar was strong in Canada. I don't make much money but I feel that if a meal was made lovingly and worth a lot of money I don't mind paying for that. In this case, my heart felt sorrow for handing over my hard earned cash for a low quality, over priced meal that took around an hour to arrive. Honestly, I felt a little nauseous after eating it, then fatigued and sleepy...then my stomach wanted to use the bathroom. My friend felt ok though. The door was locked and I wish we didn't try to get in and instead move on to the restaurant down the street with the sign that said tour buses welcome.read more

This is the nicest and cleanest place ever. I've stayed in alot of nice places but, this one wins hands down. The staff... are top notch. They make you feel as if you are apart of the family. The owners, Colin and Justin are so down to earth and great waiters. No deep fried food here. Can't wait to return next year and see all the new renovations. Our stay was A one. Thank You to all.read more

We stayed at this resort 2 nights (July 28 & 29) and all we can say is WOW! We were greeted by Julie who made us feel... at home instantly. We met the new owners Colin & Justin at breakfast the first morning. Their warm personalities made us feel like we were part of the family and the breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We never met Rolanda the housekeeper, however we knew she was there as we returned to an impeccably clean room at the end of the day. The views at this resort were amazing (we stayed in room 2) and had a view of the ocean that did not disappoint. The new owners will be renovating the resort during the off season and the results will only make for a more enjoyable experience. This resort needs more that a 5 star rating but since this is all that is available I give Point of View Suites at 5+. Can't wait to go backread more

After a two year closure, the Suites have reopened with new owners Colin and Justin. While they intend to renovate... during the Fall and Winter they are open for Summer 2021. Louisbourg has suffered an economic decline and these owners are breathing new life into the area. The hotel is well appointed, the breakfast kitchen is top notch for an eggs Benedict (the only one in town) and the service from cleaning, reception, and the owners, is a treat from beginning to end.read more

It was the only restaurant open in town. When we arrived at 615 pm we were told they weren’t taking anymore customers... as the kitchen was closing. The server was rude and unapologetic about it. All of the hotels are sold out in town, this was the only place to eat but they decided to close at 6:15! Ended up having a gas station dinner.read more

Where do I start, terrible service with not so nice server. food was sub par at best and barley edible & long wait... times. the only good thing I can say is that the young man behind the front desk/store was very nice & pleasant. I've been working in the hospitality industry for over 20 years and the manager of this restaurant should not be happy with the dining room or kitchen staff.read more

My wife and I were a little worried upon entering the restaurant for the first time with our 2 little girls, but were... pleasantly surprised with the service and the food. Don't get me wrong, the place is clean, it's not a dive or anything, it's just plain looking and nondescript. And the food was pretty much standard fair, but our girls loved the soup and the fish and portions were very good (one of my daughter's could only eat half of the small soup we ordered for her). We did have a little trouble at the end trying to figure out who and where to pay because the owner, who was the one we had to deal with at that point, had stepped out for some reason. But all in all an ok to good experience.read more
