The location was perfect for anyone who doesn't mind a short walk. Within walking distance of the harbour, Empress Hotel and downtown shops and restaurants. Beacon Hill Park is right across the road and is a beautiful park with gardens and very friendly peacocks! The Inn itself was very clean with friendly staff. Our room was a little odd with a sink next to the bed, but it came in handy. Our king bed was very comfortable and it was quiet so we had a great nights sleep.

James Bay Inn is a quaint historic building. Our room was the smallest in the hotel so we can’t compare it to the other rooms. The room was very comfortable and decorated in period style. It was clean and had everything we needed. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We would stay again.

The historic nature of the hotel was very nice, The small room was a little tight, especially given that we stayed for five nights. The bathroom was large and comfortable.
