Great location close to Fortress Louisbourg. We had the family suite overlooking the ocean with a large balcony. Very clean, spacious, and comfortable. We also attended The Beggar's Banquet, located on site, with a 17 and 13 year old. The food was great and we were all thoroughly entertained. A perfect evening!!

Nice property with great views of the ocean. Be sure to get a room with a balcony that overlooks the ocean! Our room did not but was still OK. It was a nice size and clean. Hotel is close to the Fort (you could walk) and a short drive to the lighthouse and associated trails. Close to restaurants and shopping....

We probably should have tried to book the Master Suite, it looked much better in their glossy brochure than the regular suites whe we turned up in real life. Nothing was really bad but unfortunately it wasn't great either. Service was friendly, courteous and quick and was the highlight of the stay. Our room itself was clean enough but we...

The Fortress of Louisbourg is a must-see on your trip to Cape Breton Island, and Point of View Suites is the perfect lodging while visiting there. The suites are spacious, clean, and comfortable. Be sure to ask for a second floor waterfront suite, and you will not be disappointed. We stayed in Suite #8, which afforded us a beautiful view...

I really enjoyed staying here. The rooms are nice. Mine had a full kitchen which is a great option. The place has lovely views, make sure you get an ocean view. We did not participate in the Beggars Banquet and i would like to have but the party i was with wasnt willing to spend the money. Comfy beds Updated...

First, we did not have a suite with a water view. We may have enjoyed our stay more if we did. From the water side, you can see the Fortress of Louisbourg and/or the lighthouse. Our view was of the gravel parking lot and the dilapidated fish processing plant. The room was decent but the look of the exterior and...

We're sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Though we do our best to ensure that your stay is satisfactory we do realize that we cannot please everyone. If you did not have access to an ocean view room due to being sold out we're sorry about that, however if you did get the room you chose you...

We very much enjoyed staying here. We had Suite #2 which is an upstairs corner unit and thus was quiet and had a lovely view of the bay and the Fortress of Louisbourg. The space was very bright and clean, with a bedroom area and a kitchen/dining room with stove, fridge, microwave, kettle, pots, pans, dishes and cutlery, dishcloths and...

We loved our stay at Point of View Suites! It has beautiful ocean views and you can even see the lighthouse shining at night. We were in an ocean front room with a little porch so we were able to hear the waves at night. The room was very clean and spacious. We had a kitchen with a full fridge...

Sadly the website is misleading. It appears as a luxury place but is quite run down. The buildings need a coat of paint and though identified as a suite, the two bedrooms were actually one bedroom and the second 'bedroom' was really just a living area that had converted to a 'bedroom'. Some windows didn't open and/or fell out of...

Thank you for voicing your concerns. We apologize for the state of the windows. The window broke during our open season and could not be replaced at this time. As for privacy, like all other establishments with main floor accommodations who have open windows the privacy would be compromised. Our staff work hard at whatever task they do and because...

This is clean but slightly outdated inside. The location is perfect, close to Fortress Louisbourg, a convenience store and the Lobster Kettle. The staff is very friendly. Be sure to attend the Beggar's Banquet, held at the hotel. This place is worth staying at for the views alone!
