GOOD STAY

It was very relaxing and yet again, friendly service. Breakfast was a bit slow on the Sunday, but other aspects of the stay made up for it. The room was clean and well appointed.

Right downtown, good location. Rooms were clean and warm. Probably wouldn't stay there again, more bang for my buck elsewhere.

A perfect windowed setting in a great hotel was ruined by a waitress who was heard to say, "sorry" at almost every table. Asked for "breakfast sausage", got bacon, and then we're told "no, that's what you ordered"! That, along with two eggs over easy took 45 minutes. Finally, very expensive, due to the lovely setting left us with "a... More

This unique dining experience is in the heart of Baddeck in a charming historical Inn. The entire menu features locally sourced and gluten free offerings with an artistic twist. The chef, George, specializes in unique taste combinations, so expect the unexpected!

Drove through pouring rain to arrive at the Telegraph House....our return trip through Baddeck.

Bed a little lumpy & creaky. Decor very cute. Water pressure excellent. Wifi a little weak. Location excellent. Didn't go to restaurant but read it was 100% gluten free, so if that is of interest to you, take note.
