Traveling over the Labour Day weekend without reservations, arrived early evening at the Silver Dart. We have stayed here a few times before and have not been disappointed. The rooms are a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. The weather was awful so we decided to not venture very far and have dinner in McCurdy's which was very good. We... More

We decided to stay at the Silver Dart more based on other availability and cost. (others were more $ for similar rooms) We got a 'loft' room which had an upstairs with a bed and tv and a downstairs with the same. It was very comfortable for a small family. Room was very clean and well appointed. Had a little... More

Straightforward comfortable lodge accommodation fairly close to town. Clean rooms with nice water views. Lots of green space. Lodge is located within walking distance to Baddeck town. Lodges would suit family and friends vacation. The staff are friendly.

We were disappointed upon arrival as Silver Dart Lodge did not live up to its pictures posted on their own website. We were promised a newly renovated room but were given an outdated basement room that smelled horribly like garbage when we arrived. The caretaker agreed with us that the room smelled very badly and we were given a better... More

We didn't expect to find we had booked a room at a very large, expansive, well kept, motel style complex. The campus included a restaurant with a full glass wall overlooking the ocean, a very large swimming pool, and expansive lawns. Our room was huge with a common balcony and windows overlooking the ocean. The bed was very comfortable. We... More

We had a very nice stay at SDL for one night. Our family of 5 stayed in the MacNeil House, which served us well. We had a separate bedroom with very comfortable king size bed. There was a living room with fold out couch, small dining table, and kitchen area with fridge. The good: nice porch with a lovely view... More

After reading many hotel reviews, we booked this hotel for our 21st wedding anniversary trip to Cape Breton Island. We were pleased with our stay. The view was beautiful and seemed to be one of the best. I saw the location of other hotels I had considered, but their views of the Bras d'Or Lake were blocked by other buildings.... More

Superb location, very good service, clean and nice rooms and all for a fair price - thumbs up! Absolutly good choice but in the high season you have to book well in advance. Especially if you are looking for a "chalet" room.

we booked the rooms in advance. When we got there we checked in and got our keys. They told us there were no rooms available with a view. We went to the rooms to discover they had put us in the basement. The room was dark and VERY musty smelling. My window opened up into the parking lot and was... More
