Fantastic location, walk to shops and restaurants and the waterfront. The room had a decent water view, but we were on the ground floor so it also overlooked the parking lot. The room was old and had an odd smell and needed a lot of updating. The bed was so close to the sliding door you had to turn sideways to walk out the door. And the mini fridge and microwave were stacked in the closet with no counter. The electrical plugs were mounted on the outside of the wall with conduit running along the baseboards.

Didn't go. Thought of staying there but found a lovely little condo. Condo very clean and Host & Hostess fantastic couple. Made our time in Sydney extra special. We did have dinner at the Riva at the Waterfront .

My husband, mother and myself stayed in the Waterfront Cannery Suite, which was perfect! It looks exactly as it does in the photos on their website (other than flooring upgrade as the carpet has been removed). We moved furniture around a little to accommodate three people, but the murphy bed was comfortable, and the little deck facing the water was marvelous! The three of us (plus our dog) managed well in this room for two nights. It was walkable to absolutely everything and the staff was friendly and helpful. The brown bag breakfast they provided each night (for the next morning) was excellent - yogurt, banana, juice box, huge muffins and an egg/sausage wrap (though we didn't try this as we are vegetarian). We appreciated the black out blinds on the windows as the sunrise is quite bright (we didn't notice these on the first night unfortunately, and woke up very early). We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit Sidney.

We weren't here long enough to enjoy all this hotel has to offer or the location. We arrived late on the ferry and left the following day to continue our trip. Pros: Very clean Quiet Comfortable bed On the ocean Close to airport and ferry Breakfast in room (they are not doing hot breakfast yet so this is a continental breakfast to take to your room) Friendly front desk No cons Good value for the room rate. We will stay longer next time. Sidney looks like a nice little town to visit.

When we walked into our room, my wife said "this place smells clean" Five minutes later she said "This place IS clean" we felt extremely comfortable. The staff were friendly and efficient. The location was great. Looking forward to a longer stay next time.

The room was apparently "slated for electrical work" that could not be done because "we were in it". Booked March 13th yet we were still assigned that room. Advised we could not be relocated!!!! The front desk was uncooperative. We stayed two nights but only got "breakfast" for one. When booked I did not realize that there is no elevator in th building which was a struggle for us (seniors 82 and 75) to get our bags up the stairs and no assistance offered. I did not have time to discuss with the manager on check as we were taking a ferry back to the mainland. Have written but received no response at all. It's a disgrace even for three stars!!! I was concerned about a family with young children being assigned to this room with the electrical wires all exposed.

Do you love paying too much for an old, Smokey, gross hotel? Do you love hearing your neighbours through paper thin walls? Do you love a “continental breakfast” of fruit cup and frozen burrito? How bout a view of the grocery store fluorescent lights parking lot. If so this is the place for you!! The front desk have never cared less about you, so sleep tight, don’t let the hairy pillowcase bite!

Stayed for an overnight getaway. Location is easily walkable to everything. They let us check in early. Everyone was very helpful and friendly and Dennis at the front desk filled us in on what's what in Sidney. We picked a 'city view' (actually street view) and it was still nice and quiet. Would stay again.

The location is unbeatable. Easy walk to water front, grocery store, restaurants and shops on beacon Ave. Staffs are friendly and room is clean. It is a little bit dated but well maintained. The bad is comfortable. We loved the idea of breakfast basket; it may be the result of covid, but we think it is less work for hotel staffs and more flexible for travelers. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Will be back next time we are in Sidney.

Right on the waterfront, steps to the sea wall walkway and beach. Close to everything in the way of shops, galleries, aquarium. The place is not new, but well kept up. Check in staff were super friendly. Special thanks to Dennis! I recommend the water side for view and private patios.
