I had the opportunity to stay at the Inverary Inn overnight two weeks ago on a Saturday Night. I personally booked two double rooms in January as my neice was getting married at the resort which is 45 minutes from my home. A very large number of rooms were rented to family and friends attending the wedding from near and... More

A lot has changed since the first time my family and I stayed here 12+ years ago......and none of the changes were for the better. Overall the major complaint would be due to inattentive and poor service. When we arrived at the hotel we requested to stay in one of the on site cottages. Although the cottage was "ready" for...

Trip advisor reviews were less than lukewarm on the Inverary Resort, but since we were part of a tour group, we didn't have much choice but to stay here. The lake setting is divine, and the exteriors of the buildings looked nice; however, the interiors (foyer, hallways, and rooms) were shabby and badly in need of updating and refurbishment. The...

We booked a room at the Inverary last minute, and had no idea what we were walking into. Needless to say, we were pleasantly surprised by the Inverary. We stayed in the main hotel, in a comfortable king room that included a large washroom and seating area. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the onsite restaurant, and received a phone... More

Our sixth night of our trip thru NS and this was not one of our favorites, just "ok." The rooms definitely need an update. We stayed in main lodge. The carpet actually had the biggest stain I've ever seen in a hotel, the TV was so small I could hardly see it from the bed and the AC Unit was... More

We have stayed here a couple of times previously and always enjoyed it, but not for several years, so before booking and after reading the reviews we were concerned. However we decided to give it a try based on our past experiences. We stayed two nights using it as a base for our visit to Cape Breton. We booked the... More

We were married at this property and had a great experience at that time...a decade ago. We now have a family with 3 young boys so we booked a 2 BR suite.

We (family of 3) stayed for two nights in a cottage -- when we entered it was clear the people before us had a dog b/c there were dog hairs on the sleep sofa and carpet... the rooms didn't have a feeling of cleanliness -- would agree with other commenters that "resort" is a bit of a stretch... the pool...

We chose this hotel for its location. We stayed one night before driving the Cabot Trail. The room was very big but the decor was early 1990s and badly needed an update. The onsite restaurants served excellent food in the evening and for breakfast. The breakfast was included and the chefs were very accommodating for a keto friendly diet! I... More

We stayed one night on a road trip to Cape Breton. It looks great when you arrive but the service at the front desk is less than stellar. The room was dated, smelly and desperately needed a good vacuum. The restaurant was packed with a very long wait but the hostess was very helpful in offering other suggestions for where... More
