The view of the Castlerock Inn is beautiful - I could have sat watching the view all night. Based on the great ratings on Trip Advisor, I was underwhelmed once we arrived. The rooms were small for the price paid. The food was very overpriced for the quality and the breakfast was disappointing. Our dinner at the Inn cost almost... More

The hotel is nice, and the size of the room was what we expected. The bedding was not overly comfortable, the room had no fridge or microwave. The restaurant had closed early, and we had to drive fifteen minutes to find dinner. The view! Oh, the view! This is as good as it gets. Sitting on the back deck to... More

The Castlerock Inn has a beautiful view, but the rooms and the breakfast were a little disappointing. Neither matched what we read on their website. Our guest room was clean, but did not have any of the personally that might be expected from a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was more limited than advertised. Our stay was OK, just below... More

Tiny rooms! Granted the location of this Inn offers a beautiful view, however, our room had a very small window without a view. The landscaping was gravel and looked lIke there was some construction in the works. The deck offers a nice view, if you want to sit on the deck and enjoy a glass of wine, it must be... More

This was the most beautiful setting we've had thus far in our Nova Scotia trip. We arrived in rain and fog, but it gradually cleared, and it was wonderful to see the changing sky and water from our room. The room is quite small; there is no fridge. We found the bed comfortable and slept well. Another reviewer commented there... More

we booked an ocean view room (the reservation as well as the web receipt say so). Yet we got a room facing the parking lot. The view is astonishing. You will probably like this place as long as you like a Bed&Breakfast type of stay. The staff is lovely and very devoted. Prepare to wake up at 5am because there... More

The position of the hotel is magnificent and the views from our room was amazing but it is very overpriced for what they are offering at present. We were told no dinner was available as there were not enough guests so we had to drive 15 mins down the road to get a meal. It seemed there were only a... More

Warm and comfortable, even in winter. The view from the large dining and entertainment room, and also from many of the bedrooms, is spectacular. The food was very good - a chicken teriyaki dinner with rice and vegetables. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

A good place to stay on the Cabot Trail in off-season is a hard thing to come by, and admittedly, there are maybe one or two other places one could stay in the same area. When we emailed Kim regarding staying for a weekend, she responded on the same day and we had our room booked swiftly. The inn was... More

We spent four nights at this Inn and we highly recommend it. The staff is friendly and helpful. Dining room (supper and breakfast) has a wonderful view. We had a corner room on the top floor overlooking the harbour and mountains. The diner menu is good but a bit on the pricey side. We were visiting during the shoulder season... More
