Room was small and airless. Extra bed was very uncomfortable. Room smelt damp. Breakfast was average. This location did not live up to the other good reviews we had seen. Hosts did not seem tremendously engaged with guests - appeared to be just going through the motions.

My wife and I stayed in the Ben Nevis (Room 4). A large immaculately kept room with opening windows to the front and back of the Inn. Two extremely comfortable beds. Reasonable size ensuite shower room. An end room on the second level we found it very quiet. The breakfast area and breakfast buffet were very good. A good selection... More

When we booked at this inn for three nights, the solid Trip Advisor rating caught our attention. When I called to book, I spoke to Glen who was very friendly. The confirmation email was notably personalized and asked about food allergies. Glen and his wife, Jan, are from England (former UK military) and work at making their guests feel at... More

We recently traveled out to Nova Scotia and spent a few days touring Cape Breton.We stayed in a variety of accommodations including other B&Bs. This by far was our best experience. The room was clean, the beds very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was delicious-blueberry pancakes, homemade scones,toast, lots of fruit, yogurt,juice and endless pots of coffee. The endless... More

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Auld Farm Inn B & B! The location was easy to find and close to Baddeck for dining and shopping. It was also easy to get on the John Cabot trail from there for spending the day sightseeing. The Farm is historic but the bathrooms and beds are modern. It was immaculate with plenty... More

Welcoming and friendly atmosphere at this clean and cosy B&B. Standard breakfast, good beds and complementary coffee/ tea at all times. We stayed in a double with private bath across the hall. Nice sundeck to enjoy if you arrive when its still light.

Everything a B&B should be. Friendly, welcoming, clean, homely - and breakfast was excellent with a massive choice of cereal, fresh fruit and/or hot food. Help yourself to complimentary tea and coffee in the dining room at any time. Lovely setting with chickens running about the garden. Minutes from Baddeck. Highly recommended.
