We booked a king room for one night and were pleasantly surprised by how roomy it was. This was after being an extra 12 hours on the Argentia to North Sydney ferry, so the extra room was very appreciated. The receptionists (both evening and morning) were very welcoming and helpful, and the room was clean and quiet. The swimming pool... More

After long travel day we like to eat on site so were very disappointed to find both these places closed for renovations. Papas across the road was a very good alternative for dinner. The Pool is usable but the area around being renovated too, so hot and stuffy it was unpleasnat. The Room itself was large, airy and very clean... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean with a comfortable king size bed. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. They also have an indoor pool and fitness room. We didn't get to try the dining room because of graduation.

Stayed here one night. Front desk was very helpful and accomodating as we had no reservation. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. Decent breakfast for a decent price. Laundry on premises "2 loonies to wash. 2 loonies to dry". Resonably priced for the area.

Rooms are comfortable and laid out OK for working in. Food in pub downstairs is excellent. Only knock I would have is it seem a bit pricy for the area. I regularly stay at nicer hotels in larger centres for less.
