We had a very large room on the first floor of this gorgeous old inn. Each of the people who worked there was courteous, warm and accommodating. I would go back in a heartbeat. It is furnished with genuine antiques and antique replicas. The breakfast room is bright, spacious and provides options for couples or larger groups. It is near... More

My husband and I stayed while visiting Mabou. Good location, nice clean place with good amenities & classic antique furnishings. Met several nice folks from USA during our stay. The B&B staff was friendly and very accommodating. Buffet breakfasts made a good start to each day.

My husband and I enjoyed two nights at this charming inn. Our second floor suite was spacious with a sitting room and separate bedroom with a queen size bed. Beautiful ocean views from both the bedroom and sitting room. Breakfast choices were ample with boiled eggs, blueberry biscuits, cereal, yogurt, toast, fresh fruit, and juices. Coffee not as strong as... More

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

This is an immaculate and beautifully restored gem. The rooms are beautiful,it is situated across from the ocean and close to excellent pubs and snacks. We came rolling in after Avery long day of driving and found ourselves welcomed and nd still given all the peace we needed. We travel extensively and found this lovely gem of an inn and... 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
