The room was clean and quiet. The hotel is a quick drive from the ferry. The hotel restaurant has a standard menu and a magnificent view. The beds were very comfortable and the shower water pressure was ok. Staff were very friendly and were able to answer all of our "touristy" questions.

We stayed here in April out of necessity. It's a bare bones kind of place but it's clean. The bed's were comfortable so we were happy. It's fine for a one night stay if you are passing through. We ate breakfast in the restaurant, good selection and the food was good.

Stayed here for 2 nights in March and 2 nights in April. Very nicely updated since my last stay and I will be back for sure. Restaurant is nice and food is tasty! Love the nachos with bacon! Only real complaint I have would be the room temperature is very hard to moderate. When the heater cuts out it's very...

Hotel North is the previous North Star Inn. It's close to the Nfld. ferry and we'd been staying here for years. However about 3-4 years ago we stopped because the facility had deteriorated and staying was unpleasant. It's now newly renovated, very clean with appealing decor. The restaurant is attractive and the food is excellent. The very reasonable price includes...

We stayed here with a large group for a hockey tournament. The hotel is newly renovated with new beds. The hotel is extremely clean and very affordable. Checkin was very efficient and the staff very friendly. The restaurant was very slow for a large group, and prices were a little high. We paid $7 for burnt toast that took an...

The Hotel North sits high on a hill overlooking the harbor of North Sydney, where if you are in a room facing the harbor, you’ll get to see huge boats offloading and loading tractor trailers bound to and from New Brunswick. It’s quite an impressive thing to see. Finding your way down the hill into town is another matter, as...

We stayed here on our way across Canada. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our rooms were great, we stayed twice, once when we got there for two nights and another for one night when we came back from our night trip to Newfoundland on the ferry. Both times our rooms were clean and stocked and comfy. We did laundry...
