Fine, but not extraordinary

Our family - two parents, one grandparent, and two school age kids - needed a place close to the airport the last day of our vacation. The Inn was fine for that, especially given the free shuttle service. (It is still a 10-15 minute drive away.) But after two weeks at various other NS and PEI Inns, this one is fine, but not extraordinary. Rooms were clean, pool was a hit with the kids, and nice location on a lake. But you can hear the highway from the balcony and outdoor patio, you can hear other guests through wooden walls, and (at least in our section) no elevator, so elderly visitors or ones with disabilities might have trouble lugging suitcases up three flights of stairs. Our room with two double beds was standard; grandmother's king bedroom looked a bit nicer. Check-in clerk was cordial but not warm; the morning reception clerk was quite nice, making a special effort to give the kids juice while waiting for a 6:30am shuttle to the airport. Muffins in cellophane were also available for the early morning departure.

Money over Customers

On 7/3 UNITED cancelled our flight due to severe weather conditions so we couldn't come and use our one-night reservation with this hotel. While the flight being delayed and later cancelled I was keeping the hotel front desk in the loop - by calling them on each update. So the hotel was aware we wouldn't be able to come and stay, and it was simply no way to make to Halifax that day after the only direct flight got cancelled. However the final cancellation notice came from UNITED 1 hour 40 minutes after 4 pm Halifax local time: per the hotel policies at 4 pm a reservation becomes non-refundable. Customer service of this website and myself felt that there was no fault from my side though, and asked for reimbursement. So Customer service representatives spoke to the hotel twice 7/3 and 7/4, but the supervisor / owner Susan N. refused to refund the amount I had paid - 152 USD.

Late Overnight

Our plane was delayed so we arrived at 12:20 a.m. and were disapointed to find that the shuttle to the hotel stopped at midnight, costing us $38.00 for a taxi. We arrived exhausted to find we were up three flights of stairs with no elevator for our cases. The girl on duty was helpful in helping us to carry them. The room also did not include a continental breakfast as is common in most places these days. The room was very comfortable but all in all the overnight was not a bargain

Quick sleep-over

We would have liked to have stayed longer and enjoyed the surroundings but came in late and had an early flight the next morning. Other than no elevator and being on the 3rd floor, it was quite charming. The desk clerk was particularly helpful.

Clean, relaxing, reasonably priced, close to airport.

This place is even better than it looks on the website. it is well-kept, and the staff is truly remarkable in their professionalism and courtesy. The prices are fair. There is a level of cleanliness and hospitality here that we have rarely experienced. Being about 15 minutes from the airport helps a lot, and it is centrally located such that anywhere but Cape Breton is only a few hours drive. We planned to stay one night and stayed three. We will certainly base our future travel plans around staying there again.

convenient to airport

Very convenient to airport with lovely outdoor facilities. Lake view room was misleading with our primary view of a parking lot with a mere glimpse of lake.

very pleasant 5 day stay

Staff were very accommodating. We came in at a bit before midnight and the shuttle was able to pick us up at the airport. [...] the night clerk was extremely efficient and a joy to meet.Beds are very comfortable and double whirlpool was the most comfortable I have used yet.You definitely need a car to get around from this Inn but it is right off a major road.

Great find CLOSE to Halifax!

This place is minutes from the airport, minutes from Halifax, moments from highways leading to amazing and beautiful drives. We were celebrating an anniversary and couldnt have found a better place to enjoy it. The guy in charge of dining services there, [...], gave us amazing suggestions for great dining and the staff gave us Google map directions for each place we wanted to go! They also upgraded our room when they found out it was our anniversary..at no extra charge!
