Its a good place to stay. The bed is very comfortable, rooms are clean and the location is good as well. I didn't find the free breakfast any good. Yes it is free but any Hampton Inn provides a better free breakfast. Also the breakfast ends at 9:30 but if you show up at 9:15 expect no food available.

There's a gorgeous boardwalk right behind the hotel AND Governor's Pub and Eatery is a 5 minute walk away! The room we stayed in actually consisted of two rooms plus the bathroom. The main room was similar to a standard livingroom commonly found in people's homes. The bedroom with king size bed was very nice-bed was very comfy. I was surprised by this as I didn't pay for a deluxe type of room. Just a standard. This is their standard room? I'm not sure! Anyhow a great stay overall. No complaints.

I didn't get to spend a lot of time at the hotel since I was there for a friends wedding I was the maid of honor and had to do a lot of running around and the bride was at a different hotel. However the time I did spend at the Cambridge was wonderful clean bright and spacious and would stay again!!!!

I was in town for a conference. My luggage was "misplaced" by the airline and not expected to arrive until the next morning. The Cambridge staff consistently went out of their way to make sure that I had everything I needed. They were helpful, friendly, and super professional. The location on the waterfront was ideal for early morning and evening walks with lots of nearby shops for wandering. The room was cozy and clean. The bed, comfy!The buffet breakfast was all that I could have asked for. Overall, a wonderful few days. Would definitely stay again!

There is no pool! They just have two dangerously hot hot tubs. The water temp should never exceed 104, and they were 105. NOT suitable for children, or pregnant women. Very disappointing, as we had booked that hotel to have a pool.

I really enjoyed the harbourview from my room. The suite, itself, was clean, spacious and well laid out. I appreciate having two tvs (as a parent of two young children). But, the breakfast was very disappointing, as was the fact that there was no pool, to speak of. There was a lap pool but, that doesn't cut it, really. Overall, the staff was nice and the location was great but, better food and proper swimming facilities are necessary if I am to return with my family.

The hotel was easy to find and close to a great restaurant. The room was spacious which is a plus however the bathroom was a bit dated and small. Take an umbrella with you if you are driving as there is little shelter getting in/out of your vehicle in the driveway or the car park. Overall it was quite comfortable.

This hotel would have received 4 out of 5 except for the noisy room and the reluctance of the front desk to move us. There was a locked door to an adjoining room that allowed light to shine under the door into our room/ We could hear the people in the next room talking in normal voice levels, their TV, their phone ringing, etc. We didn't realize this until 11-12 PM, so there was little we could do until the morning. When we complained, the front desk first told us they were full. Then said they could move us to an upgraded room (at an extra charge.) When we persisted, they moved us without the extra charge. The new room was excellent. Quiet and comfortable! It had a great view of the harbour, a very comfortable bed, and all the amenities one would expect from a hotel of this caliber. The location is about as good as you could get in Sydney. The included breakfast was adequate, and normal for North American standards.

Room was Ok. The room was not nearly as nice as it looked on the website. Several years of poor drywall or plaster work was covered up with wallpaper that did a poor job of hiding what was underneath. The recycling and compost containers sitting in the middle of the room were out of place. The bathroom was nice and looked like it had been recently renovated.

First impressions can be formed at the reception desk . The experience was positive as the attendant was cheerful and ckearly wished to communicate both verbally and nonverbally that the Canbridge appreciated my decision to stay at their place - rather than the another one up the street. During the stay , all staff we came in contact with were friendly - an indispensable quality in a sucessfully run hospitality business . The bonus was an excellent continental breakfast which is wrongly named. I and my friend had a terrific hot breakfast without an ingredient missing. So a stay marked by a great beginning at the desk to a hearty breakfast leaving. I'll be back.

The accommodations we're excellent & the staff were very friendly & helpful. Our women's hockey team had a great stay & the continental breakfast was a bonus as we were always in a rush for our early morning games & it was so nice to just slip downstairs for a nice, hot breakfast & take a moment to enjoy the food & beverages while chatting with other hockey teams in town for the event. We'd will be making a future reservation with the Cambridge Suites in Sydney, NS in the future! Thanks for you hospitality & great shuttle service to all the events going on in the area.

When we checked in I had inquired about whether or not we over looked the water from our assigned room. We did not however, we were told that for minimal dollars ($15 a night in my case) I could upgrade to a suite! We jumped at it since we were expecting family to visit us at hotel . The king bed was sooo comfy! The room was spacious , clean and very quiet even though there was a hockey tournament of small kids at hotel. The only disappoint was we didn't get to try the pool hot tub as kids overtook it. But having kids travelling with sports teams myself and March break I assumed this might happen. I don't know why others complained about free breakfast buffet. It had lots to choose: yogurt, bagels, eggs, ham , juice fruit ... We thought it was great! Would definately stay again!

Thank you GIS from Halifax. We appreciate your feedback and do hope that you can give us another try. Because we are in a downtown location, we've reserved a parking spot for you for a minimal fee compared to that of larger cities. You will be happy to know that we are upgrading our breakfast buffet to make it more appealing to our guests as well. With unseasonably warm temperatures this fall we do realize that we may need to extend the length of our air conditioner access into late fall so that our guests can be more comfortable.

We stayed there for two nights during the Celtic Colours festival. Our room was downstairs from reception area which was on main floor in back of hotel overlooking the bay. The room was perfect!! The bedroom was separate from the rest of the room, had 2 doors into it from the living room and 1 door from the bathroom. We liked the bathroom for the fact that the shower and toilet were in a separate room from the sink so that you could wash your face, brush your teeth etc while someone else was showering. The room also had a small kitchen area with sink, counter, cupboards, coffee maker, microwave and small fridge. Also living room and small dining area. Two large windows overlooking the bay (1 in living room and 1 in bedroom). The windows opened so we had fresh air coming in at night. The beds were comfortable and cozy. We had continental breakfast in the dining room each morning. It was fine and did us for what we needed (hot coffee, juice, fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs one day, scrambled eggs the next, cereal, toast etc. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat!

At $200 (CAD) / night (in a small Atlantic city this is VERY expensive!), I certainly expected more. We came during the Celtic Colours Festival. When we checked in there were 5 staff at the front desk ... but the staff seemed capable of only checking in one person at a time (even though there are 3 computers for the five of them to work on). I might add that when it was (finally) our turn to check in, the employee made a point of saying: "oh, I see you booked with expedia, not with us". I knew of course that we would be given a room by the elevator with no view. I can live with that, but there was also a barking dog in the room beside us. And, of course, it just was not possible to move us. The fitness room is small and with two hockey teams staying there (with only 2 treadmills) I could not do my run in the morning. Breakfast was ridiculous - long line ups every morning, no available tables, and limited food choices. Fortunately, because I could not workout in the mornings, I was not hungry! They ran out of eggs every morning, as well as brown bread (only white bread available). We stayed 3 nights and the entire time there was only white bread. On the upside, if you are watching your weight, in addition to the brown bread and eggs running out, you will notice that cream for your coffee is only available in 1 or 2% milk (technically: no 'cream' available at all!).

Response by Cambridge Suites Hotel Sydney
Thank you for your feedback as we do appreciate it so that we can make our guest experience the best one possible. Celtic Colours is a popular fall festival that brings in lots of people to experience the Cape Breton Culture. The fall can also be very busy with conferences and sporting events and because of that we are working to make the breakfast less congested during such busy times. We also have many guests book via Expedia and welcome those bookings and do not reserve "less desirable" rooms for that purpose. There are different rooms and suites that are bookable in different areas of the hotel. We will certainly welcome any requests and try our best to accommodate as we want our guests' experience to be the best experience no matter where the guest booked their room. We do hope you'll give us another try! - Shannon

The Wednesday evening welcoming function with complimentary wine, beer, and appetizers was MOST "civilized." The breakfast that was included in the room price was also delightful with a nice selection of cereals, breads, fruit, boiled eggs, yogurt, juice, and coffee. As for the room, it is well-appointed (microwave, fridge, dishes, cutlery, toaster, coffee-maker, etc.), and the entire hotel has been recently renovated in modern greys, blacks, and reds. A lovely place to stay!

The check-in was fast and pleasant; ditto check-out. The morning buffet breakfast was FABULOUS. Room turned out to be a suite - with 2 queen beds in one room with TV; a sofa (Not pullout - but a real sofa!), stuffed easy chair, round oak table with 3 chairs, along with another TV in second room. The kitchen area had a refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, utensils, etc. Lots of fluffy towels. It was more than I needed - but anyone could stay there for a week or too quite easily. One, only one, comment -- the bed was too soft, other wise a wonderful stay in a nice clean hotel with friendly staff

We really enjoyed our stay here. We arrived late the night of our stay, but were happy to find out that there was a 1 PM checkout which still gave us a chance to take advantage of the amenities, the great hot tub and sauna. Will be staying here again without a doubt!
