We stayed here on a 4 week tour in October. The lodge is older, but very well maintained and clean! We had a lovely room with a view of the Bras D'Or Lake. The lodge is in a central location for exploring Cape Breton. Baddeck is charming and has nice restaurants and shopping. The room was large, the furniture was... More

This place has a summery feel so is best in the warmer weather. We were there in mid September and it was still pleaant although the season closes early here. Buildings are mainly wood and 1960s and 70s but in good condition. Breakfast is good. Cosy little bar. View over Bras d"or lake is good. Still Ok at this time... More

We stayed her because of the good reviews. The room was older but very well maintained and clean. The beds were comfortable. They have a really nice program in the evening about the Cabot area. They also had walking trails in the woods behind the motel. You good a coupon for breakfast sandwich in the restaurant.

This was a very pleasant stay. Well up kept property, clean and comfortable. There was a great view from our room looking at Bras d'Or Lake, unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside on the deck/porch. All the staff was friendly & helpful. The breakfast buffet was very good as well as plentiful. Close by to the Cabot Trail... More

We stayed here Thanksgiving Monday.

We stayed here for a week during the 2014 Celtic Colours. The room, in the East building, was comfortable and pretty quiet. The hotel is located close to the center of Baddeck and is just a few minutes from the trans-Canada highway. Our room had a delightful view of Bras D'Ors Lake -- a lovely sight to wake up to.

We stayed in one of the Chalets, since that was all that was available when we made our reservation. The room was clean and fairly large.

I stayed here for a week during the Celtic Colours festival. Baddeck is a great base, and the Silver Dart itself in an ideal location - and with spectacular views. My bed (in the main lodge) was amongst the comfiest I have ever slept in - ideal for sleep short nights/mornings. The pillows had very little support (you sank into... More
