“Would have loved to stay longer...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

The room was beautiful, and very clean. Absolutely loved the view of the ocean from our balcony. It was a little chilly this time of year to enjoy the balcony as much as we would have liked. We only booked it for one night, wishing I had of booked it for another. Missed out on the banquet. We will definitely be back to experience the things we missed out on by going so early in the season.
Thank you for a lovely stay :).

We found Point of View to be a lovely place. Clean and well maintained, the bathroom had little counter space, but the shower was great. We didn't need the kitchen facilities, as the restaurants in town were good. We had a second floor queen suite, with a balcony, and were very close to the water. Free parking, breakfast the next morning for about $10. Not a lot of options with the breakfast, but it was well cooked and filling. It's about an hour from the start of the Cabot Trail, which was our reason for being on the island. Front desk gave us good tips on routes and shortcuts. Wifi was iffy, started good, then we weren't able to connect the following morning. It was back up that evening. But since we weren't there all day, we didn't call about it. I would imagine that in peak season, it would be quite busy, but there weren't that many there Thanksgiving weekend.

Beautiful view of the ocean. The room was large, well-maintained with nice amenities. Although we missed out on the Beggars' Banquet, we had a good dinner at the restaurant. The waitress was very cheerful, friendly & made us feel very welcome. Overall, the staff was very nice and our stay was pleasant.

You can't get much closer to the Fortress entrance - I just walked to the Visitor Centre, took about five minutes.
Our suite faced the sea and was very well-appointed, plenty of linen, cutlery,crockery etc.Beds were superbly comfortable and is was great to be lulled asleep by the sound of the waves.
Jeanette was really friendly in reception and our breakfast was good tto.

Recently, we had the pleasure of staying at this oceanside hotel. We had a suite on the 2nd floor with a gorgeous view of the ocean on a night with a full moon shining across the water. My son had ordered a bottle of wine for our anniversary and when we arrived it was in a bucket of ice on the table with two glasses. A member of the staff had written a lovely poem and left it in scroll form beside the wine. What a kind thought! We had a lovely dinner in the dining room and breakfast in the morning. Everything was exceptional. Thank you so much.

I enjoyed my stay. The location is as close as you can get to the fortress of Louisbourg, and it is right on the ocean. Breakfast was nice, and the staff were very friendly, and made you feel right at home.

I stayed on a first floor room, not facing the ocean (room 14). It was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. It was a cold, rainy night when I arrived, and the room was a little cool. Overall, it was great place to rest your head as you are travelling through Cape Breton.

Overlooking Louisbourg Harbour; a wonderful place to stay while visiting historic Louisburg. Go for a seond floor suite (Room 11), which actually looks and feels like a suite. First floor suite we were first assigned had two queen beds in one room - not very suite-like. Second floor Room 11 had a balcony and the view. Nearby beach is great for searching for sea glass and stones. Restaurant on-site and it was one of the few breakfast places open in Louisbourgh during our stay. The higher up the better to reduce noise from heavy footed guests above.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a btter view and provide less chance of noise from heavy footed guests above you.
