We stayed here after a long drive round Cape Breton. The location is lovely - well kept grounds - and as we were staying just one night then the distance from Mabou was not an issue. The restaurant was good with food and service both of prompt and good quality. The bar had some entertainment which was enjoyable with the... More

Perhaps the operating costs dictate the high prices. Promoted as "luxury" accommodations but the hotel room was a little tired & musty (comes with the location?). Room rates are quite high compared to what you would get for the same rates in a city. (I wouldn't pay more than $100 for the same in most cities, and that's being generous).... More

Stayed here on May 30, one night only. Thank goodness. The inn was not quite open for the tourist season. However June 1st was only a day away. The rooms were dated, bed very uncomfortable, carpet need to be replaced. The bath was equipped with hair dryer and shampoo ,but just enough linen for 2 people. The door to our... More

We went to this distillery during my visit in Baddeck. We went to a tour around the distillery. Our instructor gave us some great information about how much care they take making their whiskey. I recommend this to everyone around the area. It is great experience.

Traveling as a group we were welcomed with open arms and warm smile. We had rooms in the main house and cottages...great experience all around. Missed the pub being open as it was late in the season. All the more reason to come back! The tour was a great excuse to have a "sample" right after breakfast! You wont be... More

We decided on a chalet perched halfway up the mountain, above the main Inn and distillery. Absolutely incredible. So quiet and peaceful. The one bedroom with double bed had plenty of room for us. The jacuzzi tub and wood stove on the main floor was very romantic. The small kitchen has a sink/stove/fridge combination. The water straight from the tap... More

The Glendora distillery was lovely on the outside, and the grounds were lovely, and the tour had some interesting facts, but I wouldn't reccommend for anyone who doesn't drink whiskey. We did not stay in the cottage.

This is a review of the restaurant, not the hotel. I enjoyed sampling the whisky at the distillery, and they are very knowledgeable about their single malts. We ate at the restaurant, and unfortunately the food was just ok, good but nothing spectacular. Because of a mistake on the part of the host, we waited for almost half an hour... More

Mindblowing single malt, exquisite dinning and stay for the live fiddling before you take a stroll out front with stars like you've never seen before you walk to your room at the adjoining inn, it really doesnt get any better! If youre a single malt connoisseur I highly recommend the back stage pass offered!

The place is gorgeous and very quaint. The food at the pub was delicious - a bit pricey, but very very very good! The tours are a good price and very informative. I'm a big scotch drinker, and wasn't expecting much from a Canadian whiskey made in such a tiny distillery, but I actually found that the Glen Breton Rare... More
