I have stayed with Alistair MacLeod at his B&B four times so far, and will continue to stay there every time I visit the island. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and very quiet. The location is convenient to all locations on the west side, so it is a matter of minutes to get to the wonderful food and music... More

We checked into the MacLeod Inn for a one night stay. Cabot Links Golf Course, being the reason we chose this inn, is a few minutes away. Alastair's assistant checked us into the MacKinnon Suite, a roomy bedroom with ensuite. Bed was comfortable, wifi was good, tv was tiny but served the purpose. This is a pretty, and quiet, property,... More

It's a great place to start the Cabot Trail. The rooms were huge, well equipped, quiet and very clean. Mr. McLeod is a fantastic host as well. Excellent eating opportunities nearby in Inverness. Take the chance and enjoy lovely sunsets in the area!

The inn is a kilometer or so outside of town, on a mostly quiet side road. (We did hear a semi use his jake break at one point) We think there may have been a few other guests the night we stayed, but we never heard them come or go. We only saw some cars in the driveway at one... More

Booked the Maclellan room for 1 night. Wow is it big. Lots of room and a huge bathroom with a jaccuzzi that I was not aware it had til we arrived. Nice private area close to town. A couple of very pleasant ladies worked here and were helpful. Would of been nice to stay for a couple of nights here.... More

My wife and I stayed at this charming and very clean B&B in June 2014. Allistair and Katie have it going great! I would recommend this property to anyone traveling the Cabot Trail. Spacious rooms and large kitchen and dining area. Quiet and quaint.

Stayed one night in lovely upstairs room at the Inn. Had wonderful breakfast the next morning served by Katie. She was knowledgeable about the area and our iPad! She recommended a STP at Floras on the way to Cheticamp which was a great tip. We also walked on the boardwalk T Inverness beach. Gorgeous! Thanks for a great stop and... More

The Inverness area was our designated stop after hiking two days in Cape Breton Park. I had read the reviews on T.A. and liked what I had read about MacLeod Inn. We arrived right before dinner. Alistair was there to greet us and he immediately made us feel comfortable. After he showed us the ropes and got us settled into... More

To be honest i have never stayed at a B and B before. I travel predominantly for business and thus am usually stuck to chains. At rather last minute i had to cover a colleague. I called to book the same day and Alistair was able to accommodate me. When i arrived i wasn't sure what to expect. I rolled... More
