In my opinion there is no reason the Silver Dart shouldn't be rated number one. The front staff were courteous and efficient- the room clean and spacious. If there is one downside it would be that the location puts them at the very outskirts of Baddeck. The facilities lack nothing- we previously booked a second night here and do not... More

Silver Dart Lodge is situated across the street from the beautiful Bras d'Or Lakes in Baddeck, the gateway to the Cabot Trail, a 5-6 hour round-trip journey you wont' want to miss. 60-70's style motel, clean and gorgeous views of the lake from your patio doors. The Chalets offer larger rooms, with a small separate area for a microwave and... More

The Lodge overlooks Bras D'Or Lake in the heart of Cape Breton, a lovely location with well kept grounds and common areas. It is not within easy walking distance to the downtown area. This is NOT a large chain hotel--it is a moderately priced motel. Based on our observations, it caters to the tour bus guests. Our room in the... More

Motorcycle trip, including a tour of the Cabot Trail. Baddeck is perfectly situated as a base for the scenic run, for a visit to the Alexander Bell Museum, and though I didn't go this time, close enough to Louisbourg for a day trip. The Silver Dart Lodge (I stayed in McNeil House, a renovated original building on the site, converted... More

This is a cute lodge, located in a great, scenic spot. Grounds are nice and well kept. East wing looked nice, however we stayed in the West Wing. It was more of a drive-up than a lodge. Then we entered the room, where there was dead bugs all over the heater, and a boil water warning. Decided to ride the... More

Spent two nights here with the Cabot Trail package including a dinner and two breakfasts. Food was good. The location is great for outdoor activities. We swam, kayaked and biked. Enjoyed a Ceilidh at St. Michael's Hall. Staff were lovely. Rooms are comfortable and have a wonderful view of the lake. Nice town. Good starting point for the Cabot Trail.

This is in good location, although not walking distance to Baddeck. Restaurant was suprisingly excellent food at reasonable price with amazing floor to ceiling views. Rooms were clean and relatively spacious with public balconies with great views. But this is not superior lodging. Good place for families with kids but older travelers with more dollars to spend should look elsewhere.

Very clean and lots of room for a family of three or more. We had a one bedroom and our infant daughter used the clean/new pack'n'play provided by the hotel. Staff were very friendly. Good location and place to start a Cabot Trail adventure but to far south to use as a base for days trips. Pool was clean as... More

We stayed here for two days and found it very relaxing. The A frame type building we stayed in was comfortable and quiet. The lodge restaurant was quite good and the breakfast buffet was adequate as well. The view was great especially watching the fog burn off in the morning. There are some hiking trails, and a good pool and... More
