We were actually referred to this spot by the Tourist Information station at the entrance to Cape Breton. She phoned and booked it for us, I think we got a slightly better rate but not sure. It was OK. It's a huge property, on the bay. The accomodations closest to the highway do appear like motel rooms. There are various... More

This is not a resort, its a cheap motel! We have been completely misleaded by the name and the website. The room is very outdated, it stinks, stains on the floor and in the bathroom everywhere. I would be worried to get a disease here. The restaurant is closed for more than a year already although the website shows very... More

Afternoon a long drive on a rainy evening we checked in to this "motel" not close to resort. We were booked into "a new room on the hill" according to the check in lady. After opening the door I headed to the washroom, only to be greeted by a roach. Nice intro to a room that was not clean, a... More

We stayed Aug. 29, 2015. The motel room needed a thorough cleaning. The bathroom needed a complete renovation to bring up to standard. No Kleenex provided! Mold was evident on the ceiling and floors. Wifi signal was very weak. Musty smell evident and only bathroom window could be opened. Doors had no screens. We won't be back and will not... More

Booked a last minute night at the Glenghorm for our trip around the trail. We stayed in the bottom level of the motel. Floors have been updated to laminate but bedding and linens could all use updating. Room was clean but tired and dated. Front desk staff were polite and efficient. Beach location is wonderful and our family enjoyed the... More

Calling this motel a resort is a stretch beyond anyone's imagination. It is a place to stay on a trip around the Cabot Trail. The room is clean, the beds hard, the TV small and the bathroom adequate. It is not a $176 room by any means. The pool is above ground and not nice...the beach is very nice. The... More

We stayed in the motel section of this "resort". It's not a resort in any stretch of anyone's imagination. The rooms are clean but this motel is not worth the $175 we paid. It's on the beautiful Cabot Trail and you are paying for a location along the way...they kind of have you over a barrel. The beach is very... More

I had a great time in Ingonish and a lovely stay in one of the hotel units at Glenghorm. Upon booking, I was worried with all the bad reviews, but I realized that it's usually not the people who had a good time that bother to come back to write a review. My stay was just great I rented two... More
