The Broadwater Inn continues to be one of my favorite places...as evidenced by my recent fifth visit. Rooms are clean and comfortable, food and fellowship are great, and John, the innkeeper, is charming and knowledgeable Look forward to a return visit.

Just returned from our 5th visit to Cape Breton and the Broadwater Inn. We always stay in the Verandah Suite and the East Room and are quite comfortable there. Love the historic house and the location across from the lake is beautiful. Close proximity to the Cabot Trail as well. Innkeeper, John Pino, is a wealth of knowledge and lore... More

Stayed in a cottage connected to the Inn. We got the breakfast upgrade so were able to join the other guests and make some new friends. We went for the Celtic Colours Music Festival and this was the BEST place to stay. John the Innkeeper was able to guide us to our various venues for concerts. He made our time... More

Spent two nights in a B&B room at the front of the main building, private entrance. Room was comfortable, moderate decorating. Needed a little sprucing up but would not prevent us choosing it again. Now the good stuff: Host was very helpful and knowledgeable. Location excellent - best location for Cape Breton overall in my view, although if doing Cabot... More

Innkeeper John Pino brings out the best of Cape Breton life with story telling, music and a vast knowledge of the people and area. We would never stay anywhere else, this Inn is exactly what we are looking for. The rooms are perfect, the views are amazing, and the staff is accommodating, friendly and very professional. At the Broadwater, you... More

The house is nice and clean and the views are beautiful. The rooms and breakfast are good, and OK value for the price. The host is a bit too talkative and the location is not walkable from town. Nonetheless, I would stay again and recommend it to friends.

We staying for three nights in Cabin One. We found the cabins to be run down and we were disappointed for the price we paid. They were roomy enough......but needed a little TLC. The nessecities were in the kitchen area but we would have liked a bath mat, larger towels and a bar of soap in the bathroom.

This is a beautiful, historic inn, in the perfect location for exploring Cape Breton. We stayed upstairs in the library room which was so charming and spacious. Yes, the stairs were a bit treacherous, but we loved the view! The host is informative and perfunctory, not exactly warm and fuzzy, but he told great stories and offered good suggestions on... More

This was our last destination in our tour of Nova Scotia. We had stayed in some amazing accommodation and perhaps this had set our standards a bit high but we were a bit disappointed with this accommodation. It was perhaps the end of the season and just needing a bit of tender loving care. It was poorly equipped and what... More

CapeBretonMusic, Owner at Broadwater Inn, responded to this review

To begin with, both the sinks have plugs or stoppers I don`t understand this review perhaps confused with another property? This guest booked via an online broker that just offers generic room types as this particular cottage is highly sought after due to its secluded location and private hot tub.The view plane is great but not the best on property,...
