We stopped at the main house but were given a room at the "ocean view" house down the road. Accommodations were okay. Coffee maker was broken. Breakfast consisted of old cereal in a previously used plastic container, old fruit, and baking of unknown age. Staff not overly engaged or friendly. Just didn't seem interested, lots of room for improvement.

Me and my wife stayed at the Highland Breeze B&B overnight after a long day of hiking and exploring the Cabot Trail. There is the main house and then there is a second house a mile up the road. Keep it mind that it is a house. Anna, the owner was very friendly. She let us dry out our gear... More

We stayed in the Cove room at Gulf Breezes. This was a new large room with a couch and small dinette set, it was nice to have the extra space! the trail to the cliff was great, a couple of chairs would be a nice addition to enjoy the view. We enjoyed the hot tub on site too! Breakfast was... More

We absolutely loved Highland Breeze! We stayed in the North Cottage which was very clean and well appointed. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was delicious! Will be back if we ever travel that way again!

Nice little bed and breakfast with very friendly people and delicious breakfast. Great place to stop and spend the night as you tour the area. Close to whale watching and restaurants. Very clean and comfortable, exactly what you would expect of a bed and breakfast.

I travelled solo and stayed two nights. The Highland Breeze was a great stay. The location was easy to get to and was a minute from the beach and the ocean. There was a good restaurant nearby and lots of trails including whale watching and the Whale Interpretation Centre was well done and included in the price of the accomodation.... More

We had a great stay at Anna's place. At first we were not sure if we only had a room in the house as you come into the kitchen and living area, but our opinion changed quickly when we discovered it was a communal kitchen, one we could use and cook in if we chose to. We had the French... More

Cleanliness is a big issue at this place. The sink was left full of dishes not washed and the towels and bed sheets looked used and not washed. Other than our Whale watching trip , we really wished we had not stopped over night at Highland breeze. Was Terrible, one of the worst on our drive through Cabot trail.

This review does not make sense... All I can say is that all the nay sayers are having a field day with my business ... apologies all the way around for sure but I think that its verging on cyber bullying. I have an office, email, a face. What happened to common courtesy. Three staff and myself are on sight... More

Through Booking.com we booked a "cabin" at Highland Breeze at $130 / night. It had a pool and based on photos (3) there were cabins, pool and a view. Well we arrived to be shown a bedroom behind someone's kitchen!! The woman was the mom of and "cook". Good heavens! We had no idea we'd booked a room in someone's... More

My apologies, I have removed many of my pictures on booking.com and have not replaced them with new ones. I was told that they were too small. The cottage was a left over one from last year but it is not bookable through booking.com this year. I will be doing some booking.com work shortly. Only three rooms are bookable through... More
