The location of the Keltic Lodge is undoubtedly the best in Cape Breton. It has beautiful ocean views, a great golf course, comfortable accommodations, spa services and easy access to the Middle Head trail. If you prefer to be in the same building as the Purple Thistle restaurant or the bar/lounge, consider a room in the Lodge. Just be aware... More

On the beautiful sight is a lovely lodge that will take you back to a grander time. The lounge in the lodge is still pleasant and comfortable and the dining room pleasant where we had excellent service and a fine dinner. We were given a room in the "Inn" which has become shabby and in need of refurbishing. It has... More

I loved staying here. Such a beautiful setting. Lovely hotel. Helpful staff. Plenty of good hiking. So peaceful. I would definitely stay here again. It was rather cold for a Floridian in May. I saw plenty of wildlife. Felt safe staying here alone. Had picnic lunches packed so I could stay out all day. Bell boy dropped me off at... More

We booked a room in the lodge and were bumped to the Inn, but still paid over $200 plus all the taxes. We had a mediocre supper in the bar (the charcuterie plate was really boring). And we left after a few songs by an entertainer who should retire. This was our worst and most pricey accommodation experience of 3... More

When driving the Cabot Trail, plan to stop for lunch or dinner at the marvelous Keltic Lodge Resort. The gracious hospitality, the impressive menu, the first delicious bite of gourmet food, and the stunning architecture will combine to please you. Come to this outstanding resort and smile!

The Keltic lodge is a wonderful place to stay, the location is gorgeous, the views amazing, the rooms very nice, the staff helpful, the food delicious, the music in their sitting room a pleasure and the coffee is lousy, for breakfast, in the sitting room, you name it.

Early August, heading south on the Cabot Trail on the last leg of our Cape Breton tour. Daylight goes dark. Rain falls with a force that would have cancelled Noah’s departure. It feels like driving under Niagara Falls. Destination this day: Keltic Lodge, Ingonish. Finally, a slit of blue above and there it is, the hotel, perched on a stunning... More

Loved the property; beautiful ocean views and places to walk. The views are what this place is about. The rooms were very comfortable and clean; nothing special but good for a national park location. Liked the entertainment in the lounge; the service was good when we sat at the bar, but virtually non-existent when we sat close to the singer.... More

Great dinner in the lounge. Service was great, frequent but not over the top. Wonderful cocktails and beers on tap. Live Music was a great addition and well done. Woukd definitely go back. Veggie flatbread and portobello burger were great. Nice to see a Veggie option other than salad.
