No frills, good, clean accommodation with lovely views of the lake. We stayed under the dining room and heard no noise from early diners. Breakfast was self-serve and although there’s not a large range of food on offer, there was easily enough to sustain us until lunchtime. Our accommodation included a separate bedroom as well as a large lounge room... More

Our stay at this motel was fantastic. Alicia and the rest of the staff were most friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and fresh and a beautiful view greeted us each morning. Good location for Cabot Trail.

Advertised as in Baddeck when it is 5 miles away. Very basic rooms. It was supposed to have a view of Lake Bras d'Or but most of the shoreline is overgrown and a view is only available after a walk to the shoreline.

The people are very nice. We had made reservations then headed around the Cabot Trail. We were late arriving and they were worried about us....just like family. Room was very clean. Beds were not very comfortable. Continental breakfast was great. Beautiful view from the dining room

We were traveling as a motorcycle club and picked this motel for value and central location to do day rides. The breakfast was fresh and the oatcakes the best from a local bakery. Wish there had been at least one hot item-but we made due. Rooms do need some updating but were clean and neat. We were able to grill... More

The overall cleanness was great, the staff was excellent on check in and out. They have a continental breakfast that is included,... More

I booked a room with a view to the lake. I got one with a private porch and a brilliant view to the lake. Shame about the noisy air conditioning (which, amazingly, we were able to sleep through the night with it on). For less than $100, what great value it was. The breakfast room served continental breakfast, and was... More

Our first trip to this area of North America. Booked via Internet. After arriving, found that the village (pop. 900 or so) has quite a variety of lodging choices. Trailsman is okay (clean and located right on the lake) but is located around 7 or so miles from downtown Baddeck (restaurants and shopping). They do have a limited breakfast choices... More

We spent one night on our way to the " Cape". Lovely people. We had no issues with our room. Breakfast was good with fresh pastry/fruits. The owner was very friendly and really wanted us to return. Would recommend this Motel.
