The room cost $300 for one night. The hotel is in a beautiful setting. Our room was at the Inn which is detached from the main building. The room was mediocre. We ate at the Atlantic on the property. Food was mediocre. Sleeping at the inn was similar to staying at a Fraternity house on Saturday night. We got very... More

The website is completely misleading. We thought we were staying in the main lodge, but we were down the hill in the Inn. Our room was dated, mildewed with a dirty bathroom. We informed the front desk that we felt mislead based on how the lodge is represented online and they simply replied "thanks for the feedback". I wouldn't suggest... More

Booked a room for 2 nights through Priceline as hotel website showed no availability. After some of the prior reviews I was somewhat apprehensive, but we were pleasantly surprised! This is not a 5-star hotel, but what it lacks in polish is made up for by the stunning views. Our room in the Inn was clean, but well-worn. We ate... More

Wewere in ashared cottage. The promised view was only ok. The room was good but not great. The service was fine but not special. The restaurant was quite good. But also quite pricey. But the grounds are gorgeous and if you have to be in the middle of nowhere this is a good place to land.

My husband, two children and I stayed here for one night this past weekend and we were really excited having heard great things about it. We wanted to treat ourselves and splurge and instead we got ripped off. The room was terrible - old, musty, broken chair, lumpy mattresses, dated and stained bathroom. The games room had a pool table... More

You can't beat the view of Ingonish Bay! We were in one of the cabins because they are pet friendly. The rooms were clean and spacious. The included breakfast buffet was delicious. The meals and entertainment in the Highland Sitting Room were outstanding. The Spa services are wonderful, too. Our only complaint was that the hot tubs were out of... More

For easy access to hiking trails and gorgeous scenic drives, this place is amazing. The property is impressive but it is in dire need of a face lift. We tried to step back in time and embrace its charm but occasionally got frustrated nevertheless. Our room was on the second floor of the inn with a king bed, sitting room... More

We spent 4 nights along the Cabot Trail and booked two of them here since it was rated once of the best hotels in the area. From the pictures it looked very nice and a lot of the accommodations along the trail are quite rustic. Our stay there was interesting. We booked a cottage, I think because the description was...

The Keltic is NOT a modern hotel and it does not have a modern feel or amenities so expect to step back in time a little to experience the charm of this lodge! Personally i love it and would have no complaints whatsoever, it doesn't even bother me that there was no air conditioning and only a window fan in... More
