“modest, but clean, outdated bathroom, thin non-soundproof walls”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

I think average is a fair rating for this place. Couple of buildings, up on a small hill. Typical motel rooms, clean, new linens and towels, but really outdated bathroom, entry doors, windows. Has WiFi which even if not high speed it did the trick to check our emails.
The walls are cartoon thin and you could hear everything through them. I had a terrible night sleep because the snoring of the guy from the next room, really disturbing. The bed linens were new but not the mattress which had a moldy smell. Actually the whole room smelled moldy.
The price? 59.99 off season, 69.99 in season. It was the cheapest place we stayed. I guess the place is good for one night only but I would spend my whole vacation there.

Room was clean, spacious, comfortable and a down right great value, especially when one considers where they are located. We spent 2 nights there and could not have been happier. Werner, the owner, is a true gentleman and his knowledge of the area is invaluable! We even got a flat screen TV the next night (ok, that was scheduled before we got there, but was really nice of the owner to do the change while we were there) Would we stay there again? Absolutely!

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are the great. A/C will freeze you if you are not mindful of the settings.

Margaree Riverview Inn is a picturesque, quaint, clean place to stay. It features an outdoor pool, movie channels, and cute two-bed units. The best feature about this inn, however, is the owner: Mr. Werner Buchhofer who is very accommodating to his guests, who are treated like non-estranged family. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to make his guests feel comfortable and welcome. He often puts in 16 hour days to ensure the satisfaction of his guests. We will definitely return to this fine establishment next time we are in Nova Scotia!

We chose the least expensive room, with carpeting, not hardwood floor and no air condtitioning. The room and bath were very clean. The room had cross-ventilation with screens, so AC was not necessary, inspite of an unusually warm summer. The owner/manager is very friendly and helpful. Yes, it is not as centrally located as some other hotels on Cape Breton, but you cannot beat the price. There is a Coop market withing walking distance, post office across the street, and yummy ice creams cones nearby. We stayed for 10 nights, and saved alot of money by staying here!

Room Tip: Try starting with the basic room for 59 or 69 a night...you can always upgrade...we never felt the n...

We stayed in one of the suites. It's like renting a small apartment with a kitchenette. All the rooms were very clean. The host and family were very friendly. We didn't have great weather for our trip, so we were inside more than we had planned to be, and so staying here worked out perfectly for us. The beds are firm, which isn't unusual, but is important to know for people like me. The property and view are beautiful as well. We will be coming back. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: The suites have a fantastic view of the valley and the rooms are large!

I was travelling on my own so I was looking for a safe place at a reasonable cost. Everything exceeded my expectations. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable in a beautiful setting. The location is perfect for accessing many popular spots in the area including the Cabot Trail. The owner was friendly and very helpful in planning my days to explore the area. I highly recommend the Margaree Riverview Inn. Ellie
