Recent guest reviews

Our view was incredible, the staff were so friendly and the amenities was fantastic

the pools were nice and clean and great views. the food was NOT the level I expected - it wasn't very good at all. The Looking Glass Restaurant was horrible. It ruined the trip

Love the indoor pool, the incredible views, the room with separate living area, the Keurig cups, the cookies, the wonderful service, and the pianist in the Grand room.

Huge, well appointed rooms. Beautiful view from the balcony. Nice piano music in the evening

Road conditions was a pain but Bluenose was great.

Old style, small room, old supplies Ac dropping water at carpet, Coffee machine and small refrigerator in the bathroom

Nice Room, unfortunately major construction on the road (very noisy)

When arrived said our room was upgraded. Certainly did not seem like at upgrade. Room door was accessible from outside parking lot which was not made clear in hotel description. Would never have booked if known that from a security standpoint. Restaurant was only available for half hour in evening. What can be made and eaten in half hour?!! Had to walk up a hill to get to breakfast.

Upgrade for the view, but expect to be upcharged for everything. Inflexible reservations, dated decor and amenities. Would rather have stayed an extra day at The Grand.

Nice accommodations, satisfying breakfast, clean room

The hotel is a bit old, but it has been maintained well. It is conveniently located for making trips to Bar Harbor or day trips in Acadia National Park. The staff was always helpful and professional. They have an OUTSTANDING pianist that plays every night for your pleasure.

The breakfast was not very good and the space was too limited for the number of people attending. Also the living room off the lobby looked wonderful but was closed during the daytime so there was no nice place to relax other than in your room.

Nice spa and restaurant. 1 hour to schoodic. 2 hours to campobello island and New Brunswick. Quiet and clean. Excellent beds.
