We arrived after a long day driving. We were warmly greeted by the reception and treated very well. We asked for an extra cot and was provided an air mattress. The chalets have a small deck with wooden furniture to look out on the ocean. The interior was dated and worn but very clean. Kitchen is supplied as is a... More

The price , with tax , was $233.00 . If you are travelling with another couple or children , I would consider this an... More

The Pilot Whale Chalets consists of free-standing cottages right at the edge of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Ours was a large two bedroom unit with a kitchen, one bathroom with a tub and shower, living room, front porch looking towards the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the national park and even a barbecue. It was clean and nicely... More

We stayed one night in a suite located in the lower level of a chalet. It was very clean with a queen size comfortable bed, chesterfield,tv, and kitchenette. The bathroom was very large. Satellite TV is available but we had a hard time getting it to work, I think because the TV was an older model. The girl at the... More

One of the best decisions we made on our tour of the Cabot Trail was pulling into this hotel, with our 2 grown children. It was so comfortable and complete. Would recommend this to everyone traveling in the Cheticamp region who wants to pamper themselves a bit, with a fireplace and kitchen. The DVDs thrown in are a wonderful treat,... More

Our group stayed at the Pilot Whale Chalets on a cycling trip around the Cabot Trail. I was one of 5 people who shared the largest 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom chalet on the property. I was like being at someone's home. Clean, lots of linens and towels, comfortable beds, large living area with HDTV, fully stocked kitchen and laundry.... More

We stayed in on of the suites/cabin while on a golf tour of Cape Breton for one night and it was very nice. Three bedrooms and two full bathrooms made it very accomodating. Nicely apppointed kitchen and the entire unit was spotless. Highly recommend it.

We stayed at the Pilot Whale Suites, which were similar to a cabin. The washrooms were VERY large, as well as bedroom/living room quarters. Their is a fridge, sink and dishes in cabin, with a BBQ for our personal use. This was a nice alternative, during our trip, to cook our own dinners. The cabins are on the water front... More

We pulled up after the long trip from Halifax, and every one of our tired and hungry family members perked up and said "wow, this is so great." Our crew included my wife, and kids aged 18.13.and 9.
