We stayed during a stormy night, with another couple in a two bedroom cabin at the Clansman hotel. It is perfect for couples travelling together. There are separate washrooms, a full kitchen and nice sitting area. There is a nice porch on the front but we didn't use due to the weather.

We needed a place to stay and the prices in Sydney were all closer to $200 a night so we came here. A room with 2 beds was about $145 with the tax. Older motel, with some updates, it is clean. The beds are older and not the most comfortable, and we had one smallish older bath towel each. Thankfully... More

Stayed for one night prior to taking the ferry to Newfoundland. Very conveniently located, just a five minute drive. Friendly reception. Hotel grounds are nicely set among a grove of trees. Room was a little dated but comfortable enough. Microwave, fridge, flat screen tv. Internet worked well.

We stayed one night in a cabin. It was spotless, the beds were comfy. Grounds were immaculate! The food at the restaurant was delicious and the service great. I highly recommend! The cabins have everything you need and are well suited to family travel.
