Sydney Nova Scotia hotels are ideal for anyone making plans to stop over in this vibrant Cape Breton destination. The many things to do within the area makes this destination perfect for many pursuits. Outdoor activities, combing art galleries, exploring historical houses, and getting a good eye on the beautiful scenery all around the water and interior puts forth a good indication as to why Sydney is a highpoint during east coast tours. From the best hotels in Sydney Nova Scotia to inexpensive, simple, and charming inns and guesthouses, there is always a welcoming place to stay.
Spanish Bay Inn (pictured) is considered one of the best hotels in Sydney Nova Scotia for many reasons: it’s ultra-modern, stylish, offers a great location in the heart of downtown, and provides spacious one- and two-bedroom apartment-style guest suites filled with conveniences including kitchenettes, a full range of comfortable furniture, 24-hour guest services, and one of the best views of the Halifax Waterfront. Sydney accommodations at Spanish Bay Inn are close to an array of dining choices, shopping pursuits, and a wide range of local entertainment. Many regular vacation packages and special rates are available and all include complimentary parking, breakfast, local calls, high-speed Internet, and laundry facilities.
Some Sydney Nova Scotia hotels, like the Delta Sydney, offer unbeatable rates and don’t forfeit comfort, service, or style. Also set in downtown, Delta Sydney offers one amenity after another, saturating guests in choice. The excellent setting means direct access to the waterfront boardwalk where sunrise and sunset seem most heavenly. Nearby, the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, the Newfoundland Ferry, Glace Bay Miner’s Museum, and scenic Cabot Trail are reminders of why Nova Scotia captivates so intensely. Sydney accommodations at the Delta include access to the indoor whirlpool, sauna, and swimming pool, a waterfront bistro, games, toys and a water-slide for kids, and plenty of packages easily customized to suit all personal needs.
If it weren’t for The Martin Arms hotel, not many Sydney visitors would be treated to a traditional stay by east coast waters. Maritime hospitality is at its best at the Martin Arms, where the seaside location blends perfectly with the characteristic Maritime charm. Sydney Nova Scotia hotels might have many things in common, but the Martin Arm stands out for a true down-home Cape Breton appeal. Guest rooms are characterized by unique furnishings, colorful art work, and rich wood trim. The onsite restaurant is as much a magnet for hungry locals as it is for guests. Expect hearty, home-cooked meals and plenty of fresh seafood dishes (think golden fish and chips and crispy haddock) known island-wide for being as tasty as they come.
A visit to Sydney wouldn’t be complete without making the half-hour jaunt to stunning Margaree Harbor beach by the Cabot Trail. From many Sydney accommodations, downtown is only a short walk away, where great shopping meets savory dining and plenty of friendly locals. Listen to bagpipes and fiddles at local Cape Breton music events, enjoy the cold, tingly flavors of east coast brews, have a crack at a few coastal golf courses, and simply soak in the picture-perfect scenery from the best hotels in Sydney Nova Scotia.
