    Staff appears as tired as the facility.

    This was the first time I not asked about my stay at checkout. The hotel is not really guest centric. Closing the restaurant without informing guests is another example. This is important as the location is in the middle of nowhere. A heads up would have been appreciated. Rooms are very tiny and dark.

    Nice place and the personnel were simply just perfect. However, we were very disapointed that the owners and personnel were not wearing masks at all in this period of COVID. This is a shame.

    This beautiful 1895 Inn is a beautiful walk in history. The staff are amazing. Food was fantastic. The provincial beach is the best on the island.

    The property is a very well maintained site of historic interest. It is located in a national park so there are many points of ecologic importance nearby. The guest experience is unique.

  • 4.0.Fair

    We stayed for two nights, and our first evening dinner was fantastic! Both the food and service was incredible. Unfortunately, it was all downhill from there. The service at breakfast the next morning was terrible. It was so bad that the table behind us left after waiting 40 minutes for their food, which only showed after they left. Later that day, we ordered a charcuterie board, and it came without any crackers or napkins. Don't bother getting a room with a 'view'. Our view was only accessible via a tiny window, which had a noisy portable AC unit attached. The front lawn is covered in goose feces, so you cannot sit and enjoy the view there either. Overall, a very disappointing experience. We will not be back.

    The hotel staff were very friendly, the room was clean, the atmosphere of the hotel was perfect for a couple’s get away, the food in the restaurant was delicious and the location by the bike trail and beach was great. The hotel is having a bit of a challenge with geese on the property but they did not bother us while we were there.

    This is a beautiful Inn by the beautiful beach. Loved the room with our view of the raging water. Loved the friendly staff that were always accommodating with giving a blanket, putting a log on the fire or making a drink in a special way just for me!!! Would defiantly go back.
