Stayed at the Celtic Charm B&B for one night while in Sydney and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was very nice and had all required amenities. The hosts were very helpful and friendly and put on a great breakfast. As we were the only people staying that night, I think we got spoiled a bit although they probably do that for everyone. The location is great, about a 5 minute walk to the waterfront, shopping, restaurants etc. I would recommend staying here and would definitely return when near Sydney

When we think about the ideal B&B, Celtic Charm would hold our top spot. This +100 year old home has been lovingly restored and maintained. Kudos to Lisa and Chris. The room and bathroom were so clean and comfortable. The breakfast was to die for (blueberry crumble, waffles and bacon). Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this B&B. Will stay here again when we return to the Sydney area. My advice to Lisa? I know that Covid has been tough but I hope you hang in there as you were meant to do this. We so enjoyed your Cape Breton hospitality.

This is a beautiful B&B located a few minutes’ walk to the harbour and cruise port in Sydney. The house features antique furniture and beautiful stained glass windows. Our room was comfortable, clean and well-appointed. There was an air conditioner but we found it a bit noisy. The breakfast room was available anytime for coffee/tea and homemade sweets. Breakfast was elaborate and delicious. We really enjoyed sampling the “white pudding.” We were able to park our car on the street, directly in front of the B&B.

We stayed for 1 night in the Cabot Room in this beautiful home. Room was very clean - bathroom floor shined. Large bathroom with great water pressure in shower and deep soaking tub. Bed was very firm. Hosts are super friendly! Fully stocked coffee bar with sweet treats and some cold drink available anytime in breakfast room. Breakfast was delicious. Short walk to the big fiddle, boardwalk and a few restaurants (Governor's Pub and Eatery and Flavour on the Water.) Would return to this property if we are ever in Sydney NS again.

The house is very well restored with original woodwork; a beautiful property. Our room was gleaming and very comfortable. I really enjoyed the jetted tub and the homecooked breakfast was above and beyond. Lots of attention to detail and the owners take great pride in their business. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
