We could not have had a better time there. The ground and hotel are very pretty/breath taking. The staff was excellent, if you have any problems ask for Jill at the front desk, she will take care of you.

Overall our 2 night stay at the Keltic Lodge was a positive experience. We stayed in one of the pet friendly cottages located slightly up the hill from the main lodge. These cottages feature private rooms connected by a common living room / sitting area. Our first night we shared the cottage with a lovely family from Ontario who basically... More

My husband and I just spent two weeks touring Nova Scotia in our little camper. He surprised me with two night at the Keltic Lodge. The grounds were spectacular. We stayed in one of the pet friendly cabins. I would call the accommodations a bit dated, and probably a bit over priced, but the views were so amazing.

Stayed here for 3 nights with a tour group. The rooms in the Inn are fairly nice and much bigger than the rooms in the Lodge. Lodge has a great restaurant and grounds around it. Nice golf course nearby. Several good hiking trails on the grounds. Would like to have seen bikes available and was told they had them last... More

Stayed three nights and enjoyed every minute. Great beds! Dinners and breakfast buffets in the Purple Thistle dining room were delicious; wait staff were welcoming and knowledgeable. Gorgeous surroundings!

Great place in Ingonish, Cape Breton. The property and surrounding area are breathtaking. The king room with water view was not deluxe but was adequate. The restaurant and dinner was very good. Overall I would recommend the Keltic Lodge Resort however the price was very high and in my mind not in keeping with the quality.

This was a stop for a buffet lunch that came with our Caravan tour. Excellent!! Beautiful place; would be nice to stay for a night or two, but we were there for lunch. The buffet had an assortment of salads....tuna, chicken, egg, ham...along with potato salad, fruits, macaroni salad, etc.. Wonderful breads and delicious cookies. A beautiful lunch in a... More

The review below by "bssc81" covers a lot of the ground I would. I'd put it at 3.5 / 5 but the way the staff treat us pushed it up to the 4. Yes, the location is very fine. And the property is "historic" for the good and the bad that entails. Keltic Lodge very plainly wants to be a... More

The setting of this lodge is wonderful with water on both sides. The lodge room was delightful with a dressing room for clothes and cases. The reception staff were so pleasant and helpful. The restaurant, Purple Thistle Dining Room served superb food both for evening meal and a breakfast buffet. Our server, Susan was 'The best' we had encountered on... More

This is a lovely hotel, sitting on just a spectacular location with ocean bays on both sides of the main lodge. The rooms are large, nothing real fancy but very comfortable and clean. The history of the lodge is why you come and stay. The staff are fantastic, we spent an evening in the lounge they could not do enough... More
