We unexpectedly showed up in Baddeck on our September trip to NS. Since we had no reservations, we just drove around until we found the Silver Dart Lodge. They only had a couple of available rooms and they gave us a good rate. We were happy with the accomodations, although we really did not spend much time or use many... More

We were in a party of 4. We all stayed in the McNeil House in a 2 bedroom suite. Overrun with flies. wifi was pitifully slow. NO SPRINKLER system in the old house. That kept me awake most of the night worrying about 'What if' there was a fire.

I stayed here as part of the delegate programme for Celtic Colours Festival. I stayed 9 nights in total and found it to be a home away from home with comfortable room and friendly and flexible staff. The bed was comfy, bathroom well equipped and I loved the coffee machine and fridge in room for a caffeine fix in the... More

Stayed in the main building, on the bottom floor. Amenities are nice but have more of a "Best Wester" feel to them. Nothing special but nice for the price. Breakfast was good (hot/cold buffet) and there's some shops/restaurants in the area. (Note: if you're looking for a Tim's, head West on 105 about 5 minutes and look for the Irving... More

We had a nice room, nothing fancy, but clean, comfortable, and all in order. Spacious living area, small bathroom. Nice deck with spectacular view of the Bras d'or. I would stay here any time. Baddeck itself is a lovely town, and it is a good place to stay if you want to access various parts of the Island.

Very nice hotel, great view, nice rooms - make sure you get a room with a view. The restaurant is very nice - breakfast not that nice if you'd like something healthy. The staff are very friendly and always try to do their best. I'd love to come back.

This is a lovely hotel in nice surroundings. Unfortunately our room didn't have much of a view , we were overlooking the car park. However the staff on both occasions we were in the dining room, made sure we got a table right at the window with fabulous views. The food in the dining room was delicious and the service... More

What I liked about this place were the flaws, for some odd reason. It's a quaint lodge with an "old-timey" screen door leading to the balcony walkway that has the view of the lake and some "character-stains" in the rugs (nothing too murder-mystery like or anything). That might upset fancy folk, but I liked the 'on the road' vibe I... More
