Both of our stays at the Beacon Inn have been wonderful. Staff is kind, attentive and efficient. Breakfast is a delight. The rooms are clean, tastefully decorated and the Inn is quiet and close to Main Street Sydney and the waterfront. We look forward to our next visit. Peter and Lynne

Well Worth The Stay

4.6 on December 18, 2017

We recently stayed one night and were very impressed with everything. The staff there did a few things for us that went above and beyond, and we were so grateful for this. The two ladies we dealt with were so kind and accommodating. We did not have the full breakfast in the morning, as we had to make the 9 a.m. ferry. This is the reason for the lower rating on the food. I have absolutely no doubt that the breakfast would have rated outstanding as well.

We've stayed here many times. The staff are great. Breakfasts beyond great. Beds are comfortable and bathrooms luxurious. Coffee, tea, and snacks (as well as sherry) are always available. Can't say enough.

Wonderful

5 on October 26, 2017

We stayed for two nights for a work trip. The Inn was very quaint and charming. The rooms were clean and a nice size with comfortable beds and a large tub soaker in the room. The gourmet breakfasts were incredibly delicious and filling! They leave out a tea service and snack (homemade dessert bars and fruit) for you every evening which was very much appreciated. I would recommend staying here and would do so again in a heart beat.


A wonderful stay in a wonderful town

4.8 on October 11, 2017

We could not have been more pleased with our stay. The check in was simple and efficient, the room was spotless and extremely comfortable and the breakfast was perfect. The town of Sidney was wonderful with great walks looking over the Strait, the most awesome sun rise and fun shops. Location for going to Butchart Gardens, Victoria and the ferry made everything stress free. A great couple of days. Look forward to going back there in a couple of years time

Delightful!

Thank you so much for hosting our stay at your B & B while we were in transit from our Gulf Island home to TO to visit our newest grand baby! The service was outstanding and we really enjoyed your establishment! We received the help we needed (without our asking) with our bags and found the room lovely. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet and inviting. Thank you so much for making the start of our vacation so delightful!

Our stay was only 2 nights but we enjoyed it. The room was beautifully decorated and the hospitality outstanding. Small hotel and maybe not to everyone's taste but we liked it.
