Made a last minute reservation. The room was large, clean and comfortable. After a long but wonderful day driving the Cabot Trail, it was a treat to be steps away from good food, good drink and great music. A special treat was a tune sung by one of the pub staff; she should be a regular.

We stayed at the Glenora on a Saturday night and after playing golf at the Cabot Links all afternoon we returned to the Inn expecting to have dinner at the dining room. No such luck, however, we were flatly refused as the dining room was full and we were told to try the adjoining pub. There was zero effort or... More

We chose to stay at the Inn, tour the distillery, dine and sample the single malts. The sight is gorgeous, nestled in a true glen with a sparkling brook dividing the property and providing the water for the whiskey. The whiskey comes in a range of ages, strengths and flavors, but though single malt, might not appeal to those, like... More

Given the price and 'mystique' of this place I expected quite a high level of comfort here; the inn and restaurant are very pleasant but quite expensive. I'm sure the rooms in the actual main hotel are probably fine, if expensive. However do not stay at one of the chalets on the hill; These are recommended for more than 2... More

We stopped here for lunch on the way to the Cabot Trail. Upon arrival, you know you have reached someplace special. The setting is very scenic, the buildings very attractive and the grounds well maintained. The food in the cozy pub is very well prepared and somewhat fancier than typically found in other places. The fish and chips were quite... More

What a wonderfully relaxing place, wonderful food and great atmosphere . Staff are amazing and the Inn and Distillery are a definite place to visit on Cape Breton. Finished my Cape Breton trip at the Inn and was most impressed . Dinner was off the scale delicious Highly recommend

Thought it would be fun to stay in a distillery, so we did the whole thing - took the distillery tour, stayed in the inn, and had dinner in the dining room. The tour was interesting but the distillery doesn't operate at this time of year so we could see the equipment but none of it was in action; tour... More

Knowing the people who conceived the idea of a Cape Breton distillery as well as the present owners it took me quite a while to pay a visit. We did the tour which was straight forward and well done. We also stayed the night. All was very nice in a very nice setting. But, it was the food that really... More

Prior to taking their distillery tour, my wife and I enjoyed their afternoon ceilidh (1-3pm daily) while having a light snack. We had the seafood chowder (haddock, clams, and scallops) in a light cream broth. Thankfully there were few potatoes, but the taste of the haddock dominated, making it taste more like a fish than a seafood chowder. The fresh... More
