The staff at Hillcrest is amazing (same goes for the Hebridean, since they are owned by the same people) and very friendly. They treated us like their own family and provided us with all kinds of extras: use of their fridge/freezer, use of their air mattress, and on and on. The breakfast was delicious and included all kinds of homemade... More

We had a good two night stay at Hillcrest Hall Country Inn during Celtic Colours last fall. The breakfast selection was good, and the oatcakes were outstanding. The room was comfortable and clean, the location is lovely. Overall it was a good value and I would recommend it to others.

Spent a weekend at the Hillcrest during our aunts 100th birthday. Inn was lovely well decorated and cosy. Staff could not have been better. We will be back and would recommend it to all. Also a great continental breakfast - biscuits were awesome!

Lovely large room upstairs (number 6), clean and spacious. We had easy access to the village, within walking distance of the Clove Hitch for a meal. This was a one-night stop for us, en route to the Cabot Trail, but we did enjoy a gorgeous view across the inlet at sunset. Nice big expanse of grass to sit and relax... More

We enjoyed our visit here. We were on the first floor in the largest room with wheelchair accessible shower. I did not want to carry bags up anymore stairs so I have been looking for B and Bs that have easy access! Owners and staff were very helpful and friendly. Continental breakfast and lots of parking.

After searching for B&B in the Cape Breton area we stumbled on Hill Crest Hall B&B. The property itself wasn't just tired it looked and felt exhausted, exhausted from all the years it’s served passing guests over the years. It looks like it needs to retire. It would be fair to say the accommodation was clean and tidy but very... More

This little Inn is absolutely charming! It met all of our expectations and then some. From the moment we checked in we felt welcomed by the lovely women working there. Sadly we did not get her name but she was truly wonderful and she is what made our stay so enjoyable. It was her and the wonderful atmosphere of the... More

My sister and I had a lovely one-night stay in Port Hood, en route to Cape Breton National Park. Lucille was gracious and hospitable and went well beyond the norm in helping us navigate sites to see, printing out maps to ensure our travels were safe, successful and fun. Thanks Lucille!!

This is a beautiful inn at a great location. It is very clean and comfortable, and in perfect order. Everything is done to make the guest feel welcome, the breakfast was delicious. The views of the water were beautiful. Very helpful with the attractions of the area, and the local music and dineing options.
