We had a room overlooking the bay with a wonderful view. The room was very spacious for my husband and I and two teenage children. The inside pool area is across the parking lot but is a beautifully designed pool and building. It was very relaxing going there at the end of a full-filled day.This hotel was more expensive than many of the others in town but definately worth it.
Generally an okay place.
What annoyed me was the lack of a convenient laundry facility. It was not in the main building and the hours were restricted so we couldn't use it in the evening and it opened too late in the morning. That in turn required that we had to do laundry at a time when we would have rather been doing other things during the day. We stayed five nights in the main building. We travel light and don't like to haul a lot of clothing. You really can do better in this regard. In the future we'll be looking at other hotels in the area with similar price structures but with more convenient facilities....
The location was perfect. Close to downtown as well as close to Acadia. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpgul.
We had one of the most memorable adventures ever. We were celebrating our 13th anniversary. We had a room with a balcony and fireplace overlooking the bay; the room was very large, very well appointed with all the right touches. The staff was very helpful and attentive to our needs. We loved the cookies in the lobby in the afternoon and enjoying our coffee in the "great room." We would highly recommend the Bluenose to anyone. Thank you.
We stay at this hotel at least twice a year and always find it superior in quality. The cleanliness, friendliness of staff, location, view, and room furnishings never change. One of the best assets of the hotel is the nightly entertainment by pianist Bill Trowell in the Great Room. Bill plays a wide variety of music from classical to modern. He takes requests as well.

We loved the Bluenose Inn - our room was fantastic - huge bed (really comfortable) and beautiful oversized bathroom. We have a lovely view of the harbour and a fire in the room too. The room was very comfortable, clean and very good value for money. It was a 10 minute walk into the town. We didn't eat in the hotel (prefer to eat out at most hotels) but the menu looked fine. We had a couple of drinks at the bar after returning from dinner and the cocktail I had was mixed perfectly. The inside pool in a separate building was clean and the decor beautiful. We loved the hotel and would love to return - would be great in the winter with the fire in the room.

Great location and close to all the things we wanted to do
My husband and I stayed at the Bluenose Inn for our 5th wedding anniversaryl. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. An employee was right on hand to offer us a ride back down the hill after we had dinner at the Mirrors restaurant. The fireplace in the room was nice to sit by when you had cold feet after coming in from hiking in the park, and also for drozing by with a book. I was also impressed by the beautiful sparkly light in the bathroom, the size of the bath room and the telephone in there. We spent some time in the lounge where the piano man was kind enough to play renditions of songs from our wedding ceremony. We have spent many nights in rooms around Bar Harbor, but this stay certainly was the most luxurious.
The hotel rooms and lobby are very tastefully equipped, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is a high class hotel - only with exception of the swimming pool.
The indoor swimming pool is next to the gym/fitness centre and there are no showers in between. This means that people enter the pool after a workout at the gym without showering. in our view, this is unhygenic, and not appropriate for a hotel of this level. Also, people eat ice cream etc at the outdoor swimming pool, and it is not supervised so it is also not very clean. Pity for a hotel of otherwise such high level- everything else was fine! Thus, we recommend the hotel only if you do not use the pool, or if the hygene will be improved.
Great Location and fatastic room
Our stay at the Bluenose was top shelf. The views were spectacular, the room was clean and beautifuly furnished. The staff were very curtious and always available. The Looking Glass was close by and very good. All in all a very enjoyable place to stay. Thank You
We enjoyed our two night stay at the Bluenose Inn. Our third story room had an excellent view of Frence Bay and was clean and comfortable. The staff was very frendly and helpfull. We did not have breakfast at the Inn, but enjoyed the afternoon cookees and coffee. We also enjoyed the indoor pool facilities.
Distance to the resturant.
After booking a room online, I called the hotel and requested a cot. The receptionist replied that the cot would be no problem, but what she failed to mention was the $20/day charge they would be tacking on to my bill.
