Our stay was actually 2 years ago, in 2012, when we traveled the Cabot Trail for our yearly anniversary adventure. This hotel was on our must-visit list and it did not disappoint. We loved the drive along the coast to get there and the hotel itself was beautiful. We arrived quite tired after a 5 or 6 hour drive and... More

The Keltic Lodge and Resort met all of our expectations. They have a terrific staff that go beyond the call of duty. There is a lovely restaurant on the premises as well as a pub in the evening with a full bar and a limited "pub-food" menu which met our needs completely. There was also a guitarist/singer who provided a... More

Following a tortuous drive along the breathtaking coastline of Cape Breton Island we arrived at the magnificent Keltic Lodge Resort, perched high up on a peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean. Our comfortable accommodation was in the Inn at Keltic, which is a few hundred metres down the hill from the main lodge. A golf cart driven by one... More

Majestic Lodge building with beautiful rooms - the bed was wonderfully comfortable and the bathroom well appointed. I was really surprised but the size of the closet - an actual walk-in wardrobe!!

I stayed at The Keltic Lodge in August 2014, please stay here for the location, it is awesome. Do not stay if you want fine food and clean rooms. We stayed in the main hotel building.

I'm so sorry we only spent one night here and didn't get to spend more time enjoying the wonderful accommodations here. We reserved two rooms with King beds for the two couples and when we arrived they asked us if we wanted an upgrade to a suite for the same price. Well, the suite was huge and what they use... More

The Keltic Lodge is priced like a luxury resort, but the rooms and facilities don't quite live up to the price. We were in the Inn, not the Main Lodge. The Inn is a separate building located down a rather steep hill from the main lodge. The room was large, but the furniture and decor seemed more like a mid-priced... More

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
