We stayed one might in the "Inn at Keltic" - the downmarket and rather tired cousin of the main lodge. Avoid Room 619! (noise from machinery.) As we stay in scores of hotels every year I decided to devise a template of the features we feel are most important and concentrate on those: Room number, floor, size? Room 619 –... More

Not sure about the lodge but our room in the keltic inn did not have a clean or good feel to it. Musty smell, dusty in some places, bathroom did not feel clean maybe because the tile grouting is so old and dirty looking. Was supposed to be an ocean view but long grass and dirty windows obscured it. The... More

I can not say enough positive about the Keltic Lodge! I just got married there on July 24th and our party spent days between July 23-25th here. This place has been so remarkable and accommodating to all needs and treated myself and each guest with the most attention possible. From the front desk to every staff member around the resort...

lets be real, there is not much on the 4+ star chart on the Cabot Trail. I would consider this place 4+ however for a 4 star lodge, i would at the least expect, bottled water and robes in rooms, and perhaps coffee, tea, and or fruit flavored water at check in after driving the trail for hours. There is... More

We stayed at the Keltic Lodge for 3 nights. We had the largest room in the hotel, the executive suite, and it was great. Plenty spacious, but really needed to be updated! I felt as though I was back in 1972! The curtains were falling off the windows and failed to keep the light out. The showers were bathtub showers... More

Beautiful location, nice staff, average rooms and restaurant. We had to change rooms at 11pm as the AC in the room above was too loud for us to be able to sleep. Luckily the staff was very helpful and got us a new room for a discounted price.

I stay at the keltic every summer at least once. The area is beautiful, the food is delicious, and the people are friendly. The walking trail next to the lodge is a great hike and the beach down the road is one else of the best

We stayed for two nights recently at the Keltic Lodge. The location is amazing, on a peninsula with the Atlantic on both sides. We were in the main lodge and the rooms were somewhat dated. However, the friendliness of the staff and the chance to stay at such a unique location made up for the need for some modernization.

We spent two nights at the Keltic Lodge with a king room in the main lodge and enjoyed every minute. The inn itself has the feel of the kind of place people went for the whole season in the '60's. The room was ok. The bed was very comfortable, the closet was HUGE, the view was breathtaking. There was a... More

We stayed for one night, the resort is very nice, views are amazing and the room although dated had lovely views and all that was needed for a short stay. The breakfast was amazing, buffet style but very good best blueberry pancakes I have had in a long time.
