Third night stay on our trip to Cape Breton. Very close to the Highlands. The inn is very dated, but the room was clean, though the bed was very hard. The bathroom was immaculate. Continental breakfast was ok, nothing to speak about, but I was content with coffee and toast. Decent value for the money.

The Island Inn was great in that we had our own bathroom and TV. No a/c and that week in Cape Breton we could have used it. Lots of parking. Sleep well except for the heat. Breakfast was all right but not exceptional. Included toast, cereal and coffee.

I am not normally a person who stays at a B&B so I don't really know how to compare it to others in that regard. My room was only accessible from inside the house (there were others that had doors off the veranda that might better suit travelers with mobility concerns) and it was small but clean with a 3/4...

We found this Inn in the NS tour guide and it said it was a B&B but we found it was more like a lower class hotel. It was clean but we found the price was just as high as a classy B&B. There was a light breakfast but not what we had expected. They had made an old house... More

Reservations made on line. Inn found to be for sale. Somewhat tired in appearance though it appears efforts are being made to upgrade for sale appeal. Desk clerk very pleasant. Reservation was made with note of Inn allowing dogs. Online did not indicate to Inn we had dogs ( tiny Yorkie mix). Only one room is allowed for dog use... More

Nice place - hard to find a place to eat supper in this area though. Everything closes at 7 or so. There was no phone in our room - and no guidelines for restaurants in the area at all. There was no table and lamp in the middle of the beds - very hard to read. I had to unplug... More

Perhaps we paid less as it may have been off-season, but we enjoyed our stay. Booking for one night we then decided to tour the area and because of the value we booked a second night. As other travelers have mentioned the breakfast may not be some thing special but it does have the basics. Perhaps after the reviews they... More

Stayed here on our first night cycling around the Cabot Trail. The beds were reasonably comfortable, but the room overall was not overly appealing. The bathroom fan was horrendously noisy, and the bathroom door was very hard to close. In terms of breakfast...I don't know what you have to do to qualify as bed AND breakfast, but the breakfast here... More

Had a great stay at the Island Inn. Nothing fancy about this place, but the rooms are comfortable and clean with all the necessary amenities. Wifi was stable and relatively quick. The inn is located close to a convenience store, restaurants, a bank, and the liquor store. The staff was very warm, welcoming and helpful. Will definitely consider another stay... More

My husband and I stayed here for just one night. We picked it because of the convenient location right on the Cabot Trail as well as price. It was clean and comfortable. However, it needs updating, our door to our room was difficult to close, it was hot upstairs, and there were other guests relaxing on the shared balcony right... More
