We enjoyed a great evening at the Thistledown pub at the inverary Inn the food was excellent and the service was second to none. We were very impressed with the friendly staff and offerings from the pub menu... Totally recommend the prime rib burger.. They even had some local talent playing that night which made the whole experience memorable. will... More

Thank you for your review James C! Very glad you enjoyed "The Pub" as we believe it to be a great Baddeck hangout for a cold beverage, tasty food and some great tunes. It is open your round and we look forward to your next visit with us! Have a great day Matt Inverary Resort. More

How can a place with such good food and friendly staff be such a disappointment in lodging? By having rooms where the carpet is worn and frayed, bath fixtures from the 70's, not a single piece of wall décor, furniture not even to be picked up curbside and lamps with peeling finish and stained shades...Good God.

My family and I stayed in the B&B at the resort and found the host/hostess Harry and Audrey wonderful. They treated us like family and adored /pampered my children.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights at the start of July. We stayed in the Culloden building which was a short walk away from the main reception. The resort is spread over several different buildings and I assume that the accommodation in each block may be slightly different. When we arrived at the room our first thought... More

We paid $127 for a room tax included so reasonable priced but would have gladly paid more for better. The room was so old with uncomfortable beds and it smelled bad.

The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is not a single building on a single foundation so other facilities may be different. The grounds are nicely kept and the buildings all appear to be in very good shape.

Look at the spread of reviews and it tells the whole story: You could love it, "meh" it or hate it. I "meh'd" it. Why? Room shabby. Furniture dated. But as a conference planner, I also looked at ten rooms in one day; and the variety in quality (or lack thereof) was unnerving. Rooms being upgraded as they go as... More

The visitors center in Cape Breton recommended this resort and I found it to be more of an Inn. We stayed on the second floor of the main building and the room was decorated like a B & B and we had a huge bathroom. We were offered a special for 2 nights which included a $75 voucher for dinner... More

Than k you for your review, bilasi! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed our F&B offerings so much! Our property is a reflection of the character from the original homestead built in 1890, as such, ultra modern decor would be out of place, but modern touches such as comfortable beds, white duvet bed spreads...

This was our last stop after a 3 week trip and unfortunately was rather a let down after staying in many excellent places. It has the potential to be a lovely place.
