This is a great motel which is very clean and quiet. The beds are comfortable and thw sheets crisp. Breakfast is included and consists of fresh fruit cereal toast and fruit salad. It is close to the cabot trail and the town of baddeck.

We recently spent two nights at the Trailsman Motel. We had a drive-up room, which also had a large window on the back wall facing beautiful Bras d'Or Lake. There was a back door as well, giving us access to the back lawn, chairs and picnic tables. The room was dated, but there was a mini fridge, and the beds... More

We came in for a family emergency and chose the motel as it between the hospital and family. Gail was very helpful when we checked in. Our room was a good size and was very neat and clean. We surprised to learn that breakfast was included and were treated the next morning to fruit, cereal,yogurt, and baked goods from a... More

Loved staying here while on a little long weekend getaway. The room we had was down close to the lake, close enough to put the kayak in for a evening paddle. The rooms were clean and quiet. Very nice breakfast in the mornings to get you up and going. Would stay here aging when we travel this way.

Beautiful location and overall nice stay. Parking is easy. The rooms are nice and clean but a bit noisy. The open lake area is an amazing place to hang out . If I am ever in the area again I definitely would book it again. I wouldn't however use the ice maker.

This motel is located right on Bras d'Or Lake with a beautiful view. It is located on the highway that leads directly to the Cabot Trail making the trail very accessible . It makes a great starting and ending point to see the entire trail. The motel amenities were fine. Free wi-fi and breakfast. Breakfast consisted of an assortment of... More

Motel has a good view/location of the lake. Located close to the Cabot Trail. Rooms are a bit dated. Shower was horrible. Water varied from freezing to scalding hot in an instant. Same thing happened in other rooms. Pay a little more and stay in a motel right in Baddeck where you will be closer to the action. This motel... More

Located at a great start/finish location for the Cabot Trail this is a very useful 2 night stop. The pluses are easy. Location for sure with a fabulous room view across Bras D'Or Lake. Also sloping lawn to the water's edge and chairs to enjoy your "sundowner". Staff is very friendly and happy to share (and argue about) their personal... More

Clean and well appointed room. Quiet with pleasant view at the back. Well greeted by the owner upon arrival. Our only complaint would be the free morning breakfast. We felt kind of lost and out of place in the dining room.

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
