“A good choice in Baddeck”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

The previous reviews are pretty much on the mark. The location is good being just off the center of town making most restaurants and services a moderate walk. Baddeck itself is a great central location for doing the Cabot Trail. The adjacent lake is lovely. the only real negative is the age of the property with inadequate outlets, old fixtures, and museum quality televisions. I note that previous comments from management suggest upgrades are coming.

We were early in the season so at our sub $100 rate, it was definitely a good value.

Thank you for your comments RickR. I am glad you enjoyed our property as well as the village and the wonderful Cabot Trail. All three certainly a must see! And you are correct, we have made a number of changes to many rooms and we actually have flat screen TVs on order for all rooms. Updates are constantly happening but we appreciate hearing about the details that matter to you!

Thank you again, and we look forward to your next visit!

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for one night at Inverary. We had a golf/hotel package and were not disappointed! Loved the room.. very spacious, clean and comfortable for a family of four. Breakfast was very good. Nice shops to check out in Baddeck. Went to the Alexander Graham Bell museum and also played golf at Bell Bay. Lovely views of Bras d'Or Lake in Baddeck. Very friendly staff at Inverary. Would definitely stay here again.

We don't normally stay at resort centres but two nights at the Inverary was on a special deal via the tourist centre in Baddeck so we took the offer of $99/night and we weren't disappointed. The resort has over 150 rooms spread over a number of buildings ranging from the main building, some buildings with 9-10 rooms in down to single cabins. Ours was a ground floor room in one of the medium sized lodges with parking directly outside. A queen size bed and well equipped room meant a very comfortable stay. Our lodge was about 2 minutes from the main building which has both a pub and a restaurant. On our second evening we used the restaurant and had an excellent meal at very reasonable prices. As it was a Wednesday all bottles of wine were $5 off which made it even better value.

Breakfast was also good value - the build your own breakfast of three items from a long list for $9 meant it was possible to have a very full breakfast for a small price as it's not just bacon, ham, eggs, sausages but includes granola, pancakes, cereal as well as hot choices.

The resort has a spa, gym and swimming pool - we used the latter two (all included in the price) and if the spa is as good then it should be a good experience.

As the resort is just on the edge of Baddeck village it's only a short walk if you want to use one of the eating places in the village.

The only blemish was the wiring in the room, there was only one socket that served several lights, the coffee machine and the TV and one of our bedside lights wasn't anywhere near a socket. A quick call to housekeeping got us an extension cable for the light but the lack of sockets did cause a bit of a problem when wanting to charge phones, camera batteries etc.

Room Tip: Any seem good

I couldn't have been happier with my stay here. Audrey & Harry immediately made me feel welcomed. Great room, beautiful view, centrally located, excellent advice on local businesses & events. Service, hospitality & humour a plenty! I would go back back just to sit down & talk to the friendly staff, such a delight.

Stayed 5 nights.Enjoyable walk through the quaint town of Baddeck. Within walking distance to all amenities. Inverary Inn has great views of the Bras D'Or Lake, nice bar with nightly entertainment. Kayaks were not available as we were early in the season. I look forward to a return visit during the summer to take advantage of the docks and kayaking, small but practical fitness room. clean indoor pool. Too many delicious meals to choose a favourite! Very attentive, genuinely pleasant staff.

We stayed here for an event on June 7th and it was amazing. This is a first class resort with first class staff. Our room was a king suite that was absolutely beautiful. We love the Inverary and will be back again in the very near future.

Room Tip: King suites are very spacious and at a wonderful location for activities.

The Inverary is the kind of hotel you see in the movies, if you travel to the White Mountains of New York, or if you say in Tasmania. The hotel is very nice, with clean, accommodations, and a good shower and bathroom. We left too early each day to travel to have breakfast, but the dining room is open in the evening, and the food is lovely. The seafood was fresh, tasty, and well proportioned. Emma was in charge of the dining room, and let us sit outside and have some lovely sauvignon blanc from Oyster Bay in New Zealand. The mussels were good, and the fresh haddock with a lovely salsa was just grand. We stayed in June, so there were lots of rooms, but come July and August, better book early
