The staff were so friendly and helpful and completely surprised us by upgrading our room to a lake view room that was absolutely enormous. Clean, modern, all the amenities we needed, comfy bed, great restaurant (gave my husband free coffee outside of their operating hours, just because he was there exploring. How nice.) The rate was incredibly inexpensive for all... More

My husband and I recently returned from Cape Breton. We came upon the Silver Dart and decided to pull in. From the moment we walked into the lobby we were greeted very warmly by the front desk. A special thank you to Debbie and Hilda for all their help and assistance. The lodge itself is beautiful. The grounds are well... More

Nice room and comfy bed! The hotel staff was very nice. Our room opened to a patio with a beautiful view. I have only two small complaints, the first cleaning staff should sweep down the hundreds of spiders hanging over your heads yuck! The second complaint is about a rude neighbor, we experienced her snide remarks because we were talking... More

We recently stayed in the main lodge on the lower level. The room had a comfortable king-sized bed, coffee maker, fridge and a large flat-screen tv. Pros: Comfortable, large and very clean room with a porch/balcony and a lovely waterview. Quiet location about a 10 minute walk from downtown Baddeck. Classic, neutral decor. Good nature trail and nice swimming pool.... More

We are family of four (10yr old and 13yr old), recently stayed in one of the chalets. Perfect for our needs with queen bed and pull out couch - walk out onto the grounds where there are lots of recreational things to do - swimming (heated outdoor), basketball, badminton, horseshoes, etc. Our view of Brad D'or Lake was amazing. We... More

We only stayed for one night in the North Lodge but we were very happy with stay here. The staff were helpful. It was good value, with very large rooms with a lovely view. Sure, the decor and furniture were quite dated but that's only a minor issue (actually, it's so dated it's almost trendy again!). It is quite well... More

We stayed in the West Lodge, it was clean and a great room, if not a bit stuffy/musty. But that was our only complaint. The girls at the front desk were pleasant and friendly, everything was very clean, and the outdoor heated pool was glorious, especially in the moonlight! And the restaurant was fabulous, especially our waitress Kaitlyn! We eat... More

This was our first trip to Nova Scotia and we feel really lucky to have landed in both Baddeck and the Silver Dart Lodge. My spouse and I were traveling with our grown nephews and all of us had a wonderful impression of our hotel. It is located perfectly if you want to spend 2-3 days exploring the spectacular Cabot...

Pros: beautiful view of the lake from the restaurant and main building rooms. Comfortable king bed and leather chairs in room. Cons: bathroom areas were grim (reminiscent of 1960s era motel) and needed some TLC (including paint); toilet ran constantly; TV not really working; paper thin walls (noisy). Baddeck is a nice stop in Cape Breton (make sure to go... More

Good afternoon: I was very pleased to read your review of the Silver Dart Lodge. I've made note of the leaky faucet and will certainly have maintenance attend to it immediately. I do hope you enjoyed your visit to Baddeck and will visit with us again in the future. Hope you are enjoying all this sunshine! More
