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. Therefore I almost gave it 4 stars but the place is too... More

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.

We did not stay at Keltic but went to the main dining room for dinner. This is a very nice formal dining room in a historic property. Service was excellent but the food was only so so. We then went into the lounge for coffee and to listen to the entertainer. Service in the lounge was poor. We asked for... More

Beautiful property. Friendly front desk and serving staff. Room cleanliness could have been better. Had to move the bed to plug in lights. Comfortable bed. Nice hikes on the grounds and nearby. Nightly local entertainment very good. Fairly casual even in purple thistle dining room. We had 2 delicious dinners-lamb, lobster, halibut- in purple thistle.

Our golf group has stayed in a Keltic Lodge cabin for 10 years. Service is always excellent. Breakfast is unmatched. Fire feels fine after 18-36 holes. Supper and live music in the Highland Sitting Room is a great way to end each day.
