    The property was beautiful and clean. The rooms were quite nice. And free laundry facilities! The young lady at the front desk wasn’t very enthusiastic.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I was surprised that StFX University Hotel was as new and well maintained than I expected of a University lodgings. I never asked if the building was used as a residence during the school year. The staff were great, and followed up on a plumbing issue after a water break near the hotel in the town of Antigonish. I definitely would book at this hotel in the future. It is run like a hotel and not just renting out dorm rooms for the summer. The hotel is located in an easily accessible location on campus, just off the main road into Antigonish.

    All you need in an overnight stay

    Very clean, very basic accommodation. It was comfortable and really everything we needed. The elevator was inoperative and we had to use the stairs to get to the 4th floor. This wasn’t a problem when we weren’t hauling all of our stuff up!
