room was nice , we had the upstairs small room and it was fine. bathroom a little small but again OK... water pressure little low. Breakfast is not great .. especially since they advertise that are an upscale dinner spot, we would have tried their dinner, but the breakfast turned us off. they have a few rocking chairs out in...

Unfortunately only stayed here for two nights, and although we were supposed to have a cot in the room, my sister and I shared a bed and our third guest stayed on the pull out because there really was no room for a cot, but other than than little SNAFU was a great stay. Beautiful room with a great view,... More

Room was clean and bright compared to others that I experienced in Cape Breton. View from back yard or deck was spectacular. However, negatives were numerous: WiFi only worked when no other guests using it, electrical upgrades required to allow for modern needs, and money spent by owners on enhancing their antique collection would be better spent on items for...

Months before, I reserved a room with a view of the ocean and confirmed a few days prior to arrival. Unfortunately at check-in, the water-views were gone and for $190 I received a room with a lovely view of the gravel parking lot. On the plus side, the staff was friendly and the room was clean. Breakfast was nice, but... More

Absolutely delightful property especially if you have a Waterview room. Spotless, not large but big enuf. Buffet breakfast had fresh eggs n sausage, assorted yogurts with fixings n different breads including delicious banana nut muffins. Management n staff were more than accomodating. If you want that view, you have to pay a little extra.

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
