Thank you for your taking the time to leave this review. We apologize that you were less than pleased with your stay. We cannot do anything about the 2% marketing fee, as it's a provincially imposed fee, but if you'd like to discuss the rest of the stay further, please don't hesitate to contact me at andrea.brophy@maritimeinns.com.

We stayed here for one night before driving the Cabot Trail. Unfortunately, there is not much choice of decent places to stay in Port Hawkesbury so we ended up here. Looks like the shortage of places allows them to charge whatever they want. The beautiful inn we stayed in on the Cabot Trail wasn't much more than this hotel and...

The night I requested was full and I put my name on a waiting list. Three weeks before my one night stay the hotel called and said there was an opening. I was impressed.

I was in the area because for work purposes. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The front desk attendant at my arrival was very friendly. I could hear noise from the doors closing in the hallway, but overall the hotel was pretty quiet.
