Mixed feelings. Nice staff, nice location, nice main building, but our room in Ceilidh Lodge motel style building next to main building was the ugliest room we saw in a long time. Last renovations probably dating from 30 years. Scratched old night table, little bathroom with little space to put your stuff on, and non matching color of bath and... More

Me and some friends stayed here a few days ago. First of all, we paid prior to arrival without any indication of needing to do so on the website. When we arrived, the place looked amazing: right on the water, cute cabins; a nice looking resort. When we went to check in, we were told that we were actually staying... More

Audrey and her husband Harry are one of the most hospitable managers I have had the pleasure to be with! We were starting our bicycle trip around the Cabot Trail and Harry got up at 5:30 to make sure we had a hearty breakfast. Very friendly but not obtrusive! Rooms and grounds are very well kept! Breakfast more than enough.... More

Dated, not-quite-clean rooms. Friendly, courteous staff. Nice continental breakfast. If you're looking for a place to crash and your demands for the quality/up-to-dateness of your room are modest, this place will do. We weren't impressed by the rooms, but we were _very_ impressed with the staff. The view was great too. Our entire stay was made magical by a wonderful... More

Innkeepers Audrey and Harry are so warm, friendly and eager to give suggestions on what to see and do while touring Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. The rooms at the Ceilidh are comfortable, very clean and the added breakfast a nice feature. Baddeck is a perfect start or finish to your Cabot Trail trip.

The moment we walked in, we felt extremely warmly welcomed and at ease. Big booming hellos and huge smiles. The hostess, Audrey, offered exceptional service, making us feel at home, and making us truly feel like we were her guest, a rarity in most hotels. After check-in, Audrey didn't hesitate to make us a pot of coffee and tea, as... More

We were three guys from Montreal on a cycling tour around Nova Scotia. We first heard of the Ceilidh Country Lodge because they offered a vehicle tour around the Cabot Trail. The view, the ride, the guide, all of it was amazing! So glad we took the tour because we would have missed a lot of spots our guide Harry... More

We booked our stay via one of the provincial travel/tourist information centers, so we got a good rate that included a nice breakfast (either continental buffet, or a hot egg/ham combo). The staff was very friendly, and very helpful. In fact, we had one of those new flat screen TVs in our room (though why anyone would stay in and... More

Spent two nights here. The rooms are large enough but with two double beds and a small bathroom. The facility is older and not very comfortable. The sister property across the highway has all of the amenities but that doesn't help us. I'll find another place to stay next time!

We enjoyed 2 nights here. The rooms are nice typical hotel rooms. But honestly we didn't spend much time in our room because of the access to the resort amenities across the street at the Inverary (their sister property). For $7 each we paid for a wrist band and had all day access to sea kayaks, paddle boats, canoes, sports... More
