Perfect choice

Breakfasts were delicious, room was lovely - nice furnishings and every detail considered. Tea / coffee readily available downstairs and usually a cookie or cake too! Easy walk into town and to the waterfront.

Exceptional B&B Experience

Atmosphere and rooms are exceptional. Attention to detail but with the comforts of home. Simply the best place to stay and unwind in Sidney and surrounding area. Great for both leisure and business.

We only stayed one evening but next time will stay longer. Great service, very nice clean rooms and a wonderful breakfast. Really enjoyed the complementary glass of sherry prior to heading out for supper.

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.

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.
