What People are Saying

I was going to email on behalf of my six board members and myself to say thank you for a wonderful experience. The food was awesome everywhere, catered or in-house, the staff were pleasant, helpful, well turned-out and professional, the service timely, the rooms great (both meeting and personal) and the conference setup was really well done and maintained, from refreshed water to changeover between meals. That was a lot of hard work for every staff person. Breakfast was a joy in the morning!

Many thanks from all of us. I wish I lived closer; my one regret is that I did not have a chance to use the pool or the fire pit, both of which looked so inviting.

Our group stayed in Bathurst for a few days during the Subway Super Series and we received a level of service that we would expect from a major hotel chain. Warm welcome, courteous service and an excellent value for money.
— Pierre Leduc, Director, Hockey Operations, QMJHL
The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, its trainers and players had an excellent experience in Bathurst during the November 2014 Canada-Russia series.

What an achievement! The Tourism Industry Association of New Brunswick (TIANB) is delighted with the enormous success of its 2014 annual conference in Bathurst. Destination Bathurst and its team’s invaluable collaboration helped to make the annual conference a resounding success.
