Drove into Baddick without a clue where to stay and stumbled on this great place. We looked at the rooms in the Inn. Although they were clean, the decor is a bit outdated, HOWEVER if they have a cottage available, grab it!Awesome! Very cute, updated decor and super clean. Don't let the chipped paint on the outside deter you. Same... More

The cabins were lovely and updated. The rooms in the inn or motel looked more than tired and small. The staff were very nice. The jet tub was ghosting on us so the staff were very sweet and came down to check it out. The room had a tassimo which was a plus and it was in the heart of... More

The Telegraph House Hotel is located on a hill overlooking Baddeck and its harbor. The rooms are spacious and quaintly decorated. The staff is outstanding. The hotel owner assisted us in booking onward travel and was extremely helpful in all respects. A special bonus is dining in the hotel dining room. The hotel chef is a true master of food... More

It was clean for sure, but thats as good as it got. The main house of the property just felt too mcuh like a home. The "hotel rooms" felt like a room in one's private home. There werent any additional locks on the thin wood doors, and the small guest rooms were just spacious enough to fit 2 oddly placed... More

We were booked into Telegraph House for two nights as part of a tour of Nova Scotia. When Hurricane Arthur derailed part of our trip plans, the manager kindly booked us for two additional nights, moved our luggage to our new room, even found us a refrigerator and coffee maker in the new space. They were friendly and accommodating for... More

It was nice to stay at the Telegraph. It is in a great location for those who want to explore Cape Breton. Although Baddeck is a small town, there are many places visit and many things to do if your willing to drive a bit. The accommodations were comfortable and clean but could be updated a bit. The staff was... More

We stayed in one of the motel rooms, which are clean and perfectly acceptable. We chose not to dine in the hotel as that looked expensive but went out each evening. A quiet location and centrally placed.

This is the second year in a row we have visited Baddeck in Cape Breton and both times we have stayed at the Telegraph house. We are very pleased with the accommodations... Comfortable beds, clean sheets, hot showers and great staff and customer service. We stayed in the rooms behind the main house since they accommodated our two dogs and... More

We had an excellent stay at the telegraph house. Our family of 3 was there for one night during our week long road trip to Nova Scotia. Shawn, the caretaker, was very nice to us and provided us an excellent service. Since it was just before the peak summer season, most of the rooms were empty and he allowed us... More

John at the front desk was friendly and hospitable. We drove up from Hailfax and felt bad about showing up later in the day but he was so welcoming, spoke with us for a while, and we did not feel rushed. He gave us lots of great info about the area, hiking trails, and maps. He even called a puffin... More
