We stayed in room 2 it appeared to be super clean but there was a bad smell in the bathroom but we did not complain ,we stayed one night and the manager was super nice and helpful. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed the the great water pressure in the shower,so soothing. We probably won't return to Whycocomagh but... More

After a couple of motels in Nova Scotia this is the most comfortable, best stuffed and last but not least most friendly one. The host lady is so charming and the shower pressure so great that we are considering to either lengthen our stay or if not will definitely come back soon!

We booked 2 rooms here and were supposed to stay for 2 nights. I made the booking by phone and spoke to the manager Christena, who was lovely and very hospitable. However, when we arrived, I was shocked at the run down state of the reception area. I should have taken this as a cue and cancelled our rooms but... More

My sincerest apologies for your experience here at the Motel. I too was very disapointed and alarmed when I learned of the state of those two particular rooms up on the hill. That is by far not our standard here. As Manager I take full responsibility, and have already had the issues resloved. I regret they happened at all. So... More

I am currently thoroughly enjoying my stay at the Fair Isle Motel. We checked in Friday evening and will be checking out tomorrow (Monday) morning. It was a last minute getaway and fortunately all of the big chains were full, forcing us to look online for something (we found a much better deal!). I read the reviews and was very... More

Very pleased to have discovered this motel on the internet. Otherwise, might have missed it. The owner was friendly and super-helpful. She really cares about her guests. Most important of all, the room was fantastic. It was large, clean, and nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable and had lots of pillows. Just a five-minute walk down the highway was... More

Stopped in after a long day driving. Excellent service, good price. Great view. Wish we could have stayed to appreciate the community and spend time in the pool. Lots of recent upgrades including tv, wifi, fixtures, smooth driveway.

We stayed at the Fair Isle Motel trying to avoid some of the pricier places in the heart of Cape Breton. The location was good and the area had some nice close amenities and things to do. We hiked Salt Mountain while we were there for a great view of Whycocomagh Bay and Bras d'Or Lake. The staff was very... More

Didn't expect a super clean, up to date (big flat screen TV) motel on the highway. Very nice room to crash!! We were super tired after 11 hours of siteseeing and when I entered this room I was surprised to see exactly what I had hoped for. This motel is for crashing, nothing more nothing less.
