Heather was very friendly and helpful as was staff. The place had a lot of character and was very clean - which is always a must for me :) Breakfast was homemade, different everyday and very good. Definitely recommend.

Heather was a lovely host! We stayed one night here as we were catching the ferry to Newfoundland. The room was small, but comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Heather made us feel very welcome, and breakfast was tasty!

About
Description
At The Harbourfront is a couple of blocks from the ferry to Newfoundland and across the street from the bus terminal. For travelers touring Cape Breton: we are approx 45 minutes from the start of the Cabot ...More Trail. We are near the city of Sydney with all its entertainment events and casino, about 45 minutes from Glace Bay's Savoy Theatre and Miners Museum, the Fortress of Louisburg and East Bay the home of Rita MacNeil’s Tea Room. Also not too far from the many golf courses and festivals that are part of the summer events in Cape Breton. North Sydney offers free entertainment at the wharf in the summer season. New North Sydney Arena and new Culture and Heritage Centre will add to the pleasure of those visiting the area along with the Sports Museum and Fossil Centre, nearby in Sydney Mines. Less
