  • Very clea

  • Nice stay, but watch for the extra fees tacked on at the end. Deceptive business practice…

    Beautiful stop Can’t wait to come back.

    It was a quick turn around stay due to covid but we throughly enjoy the hotel and location for the short time.

    The staff were very nice. The heating unit in the room was a little noisy. Overall it was a nice stay.

    Not a very warm welcome at the front desk. The hotel room itself was nice and clean. The crown and moose pub had great live music, however the breakfast at the salt spray is really bad and overly priced so I would recommend avoiding it.

  • 6.0.Good

    Checkin was fairly smooth but quickly realized I had been given the wrong room. I went down to talk to the receptionist and was told the executive room I booked was the same as the junior suite I was given. I begrudgingly agreed, and left. At this point, the only explanation was that I was crazy. To give myself some credit I checked out the pictures as I was sure that wasn’t the room I booked. Went back again for a third time to argue my case now that I had the photos and that’s where they agreed with me and gave me a new room. Makes me wonder if I had not gone back to checkin desk for a third time...not a huge deal but definitely a pain when travelling with a baby and needing to switch rooms after getting settled, etc.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Hot mess

    After check in we were given a room that someone was already in, then were given a room that was not the one we booked. Basically a smaller room. Then we were compensated with a free breakfast which was a train wreck. The hotel restaurant staff were completely overwhelmed, mainly due to the ongoing Covid restrictions. Management should take a walk around once and a while and support their staff. Complete train wreck.

    There was absolutely nothing unique about the property. It did have a nice view of the Harbour.

    Not much unique - although it was a nice stay and nice staff. A little overpriced, however.
