"Disappointing, not worth the money"
Room was noisy, near the elevator and could hear conversations easily. Doors noisy but it did quiet down through the night. No hot water in the shower in the am. Front desk staff did explain how to use a shower to the two of us, very condescending. In compensation they did offer to refund our parking fee of $10, wow so generous. Breakfast buffet was mediocre at best, better to dine elsewhere. Would not return or recommend this facility.

"Great hotel"
The hotel was fantastic. Only complaint would be, that staff member who check us in seem annoyed by our presence. Who knows, may have been having bad day. But it was obvious enough I didn't have to say anything before my wife brought it up. Sour first impression. The hotel and the rest of the staff made up for it.

"Convenient Waterfront Hotel in Downtown Sydney"
Lovely modern hotel with convenient parking and a great view over the waterfront and the Sydney "fiddle". Upon check-in, the staff was friendly and, since there was to be a wedding party at the hotel over the weekend, kindly gave us a room on a different floor. Our suite was well appointed with a living room, bedroom, microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator and kitchen dishes and utensils. The breakfast, while a little limited, still gave an egg and sausage option and a variety of breads and pastries, yogurt, fruit and cereal. If I were to make a suggestion, it would be to add a few more hangers in the room for those of us staying a few days.

"Good location for a stay in Sydney"
Cambridge Suites is right on the waterfront, and you can see the Ceilidh Fiddle from the boardwalk in front of the hotel. It is not a far walk. There is also a couple of restaurants within walking distance and a Tim Hortons. The rooms were roomy, clean, and the beds comfortable. The area was quiet in the evening. The breakfast comes with the room and it offers hot and cold foods that were yummy options for breakfast. The restaurant in the hotel had good food for supper as well. Parking was next door and easy to access.

"Nice Hotel centrally located"
We used Sidney as our base to drive the Cabot trail and to go to St. Louisburg Fort, so when returning to it at night this hotel was ideally located to walk to restaurants. We also had a lovely view of the harbour and could easily access the boardwalk for evening strolls. Restaurant attached served good food if one did not want to stroll to a downtown restaurant.

"Good stay in Sydney"
Good experience overall. Only negative was that. The harborview room which I reserved was on the bottom floor. This was not great in that anyone walking on the boardwalk could look in. It somewhat ruin the "Harbor View", and I could have just gotten a normal room. If I had to do it again I would ask for a room on the fourth floor or higher.

"Some confusion"
We stayed on August 21 and then again Sept 3. The first stay were surprised that there were no gluten free options for breakfast and no interest in providing any. We stayed anyhow and rebooked for our night before flying home. Upon checkin the same woman who had not facilitated GF the first time around announced that had we ordered ahead we could have had GF for breakfast. So, what gives? Very weird and not very nice.

"Not as Addvertised"
I only look for 2 things, pet friendly and pay movies. Both were indicated on the web when booking. On arrival no pay movies and the front desk indicated they were discontinued over 8 months ago. Even on-demand would be better than the very basic TV channels offered. Very disappointing to the point I was going to check out and go to Holliday Inn. Will not stay here again.

"Great Hotel, right at the waterfront!"
This hotel was a great find for our trip. It was so nice to have the suite, as Hubby is a very early riser! It was in a great location, which enabled us to tour the Island easily. The staff are very friendly and very accommodating. We had a very pleasant stay. The hotel was mostly couples and business folks! Being directly at the habour front was awesome, we would walk it in the evening and listen to the folks playing music and singing!

"Very nice hotel..."
The hotel is great for the price. Clean room, nice waterfront location with boardwalk (somewhat limited but nice for a stroll). Restaurants choice within walking distance is not bad. The only negative is the front desk people attitude (you feel like you're bothering them every time you ask a question) but that's only a minor annoyance. But overall, I recommend that place.

"beautiful hotel right on the boardwalk"
The staff were friendly and informative. Always a smile and a hello from everyone we met. We loved that we could go right out the backdoor at night and enjoy a stroll on the boardwalk, so close to restaurants and shopping. The room was beautiful and big, the kids loved the hot tub and spa pool. The beds were soooo comfortable. We appreciated the organic shampoos and the 3 waste buckets to sort our garbage properly. It's nice to see a hotel that cares about the environment and provides the proper equipment so all the trash isn't just shoved into one can. Would definitely recommend this place to friends. We will be staying there on our next trip to Sydney for sure.

"A great choice while staying in Sydney"
Spent 2 nights in Sydney, NS near the end of a 2 week trip to Nova Scotia/Cape Breton. This hotel was, by far, the best bang for our buck. Price point was very good, and breakfast was included. Front desk staff were professional and pleasant. Bed was comfortable, and drapes were black out - although very hard to open and close. There was chilled white wine in the fridge, and a bottle of red on the counter, if you wanted to purchase. Nice feature! We had our own wine though (and rum), so didn't take advantage of this option. There were even real wine glasses to use! I would highly recommend this hotel, and look forward to staying at other hotels of this brand.

The reason for rating was kitchenette was not fully cleaned. Not discusting just not cleaned as I would have expected. Crumbs by toaster and food crumbs on top shelf. Staff was great Don't think much of roof top patio. Tired building wth wallpaper that needs sprucing up. If this was a 100 a night room. Different story. Expected more. But not of staff Gave 100 percent great service !!! And loved the location To be able to walk out back and have a waterfront boardwalk there was excellent. So maybe I being unreasonable about a couple of crumbs. Overall. Good place to stay.

"Good Location"
Staff was very nice and helpful. Location on the waterfront was great. The hotel is dated and the pictures on Expedia are kind of misleading. The water had a funny odor in the shower and the sink. The room itself had a smell like a rubber tire warehouse (perhaps from the carpet) and the couch and chair were stained. It's an ok hotel that could be better but will suffice as there aren't may others around in that area.

"Ok Hotel"
We stayed here 1 night. It was oan ok hotel. The front desk staff were friendly & we were upgraded to a suite. The beds were comfortable & it was nice to have a little more room since we had been living out of our suitcases for 9 days. The hotel is dated...definitely in need of some updates. The front desk staff promoted the restaurant when we checked in. We decided to give it a try for dinner. Not a great experience. When we went down to try to get a table, we were gruffly greeted by a gentlemen that said "I will be with you in a second" then directly asked.." Do you have reservations?". I said no and he said..."....we'll it might be a bit of wait, we are very busy" then walked away. He made us feel like we were a nuisance to him. A woman came by a few minutes later & asked if we had been helped, I told her no. She said they had a table but needed to get it ready. Once seated, we could see that the servers seemed very busy but there were a number of empty tables. The gentleman that originally "greeted" us seemed to be a Manager but did very little to help. Focused on bringing water to two table & the rest of the time was missing in action or doing nothing. The next morning we tried the free breakfast. They could not keep up to the food supply they needed out, we ate some toast & sausage waiting for eggs to be filled up (which were empty when we got there). After 20 minutes we left, no eggs to be seen. It is an ok hotel but definitely room for improvement

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 days recently, and I was very impressed with the hotel. The interior is in very good shape and is very clean and modern, with our room being very nice also. The hot tub and sauna on the top level were also a nice feature. Any staff member we say was nothing but friendly and helpful. The one thing I did not enjoy was having to pay $16 to park at the hotel for 2 nights, other then that it was a great stay, I would defiantly go back!
