perfect spot to stop midway through the Cape Breton trail. We got in late but enjoyed walking around the area along the water. Room was clean, bed wasn't super comfortable, but other then that our quick stay was great. Breakfast in the resturaunt in the morning was also very good.

We stayed for two nights whilst touring cape Breton. The plus points, very friendly, good location (there's not a lot of choice in the area), good view from the ocean rooms and kept very clean. However the rooms do need updating. The sheets on our bed were very thin, the quilt was tired and worn. There was also a huge... More

This place really allows you to see the best of what nature has to offer. It's a simple place, clean, affordable and in a strategic location for day hike in the national park. We absolutely loved our stay with wonderful and breathtaking sunset right from our motel room. It also offers 3 meals a day which is amazingly convenient since... More

We rode the Cabot Trail on our Harleys and stayed two nights at this motel. I had inadvertently left a book in our room when we checked out and we were many miles away when I discovered it was missing. Called the hotel and they found it. They said they'd mail it back to our home in the U.S since... More

We were on a motorcycle trip from Florida to Nova Scotia. This was nothing fancy but it was clean, friendly and reasonable. Just the ticket for a overnight stop. It has a above average restaurant on site that locals also dine at. Beautiful mtn and ocean views. I would stop here again.

Reminiscent of a 50's seaside resort, the motel is surrounded by gorgeous, wooly hills with an outstanding ocean view. We stayed here for three days and after hiking and exploring the Cabot Trail all day, it was great to come back to our spacious room with a balcony. We ate breakfast and dinner at the restaurant each day and we're... More

Needs attention... Not a good value for the price. This place has a beautiful view and was relatively clean but definitely needs updating. Friendly helpful staff and breakfast was excellent in the reataurant.

This is our second time staying at Midtrail and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The motel offers great value for the price and a consistently clean room! The staff are always very nice and accommodating with questions and small requests - such as a forgotten cork screw and ice for the room. A great location along the Cabot Trail - we... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in between the mountains of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and overlooking the sea, Pleasant Bay & the Midtrail showcase some of the best scenery that the Cabot Trail has to offer. All rooms are fully renovated and the restaurant serves a great selection of tasty dishes including Lobster, Mussels, Snow Crab & Scallops as well as a variety of other choices to accommodate most preferences. World class whale watching is just a short walk away and the hill behind the restaurant or the private beach below serve as amazing places to take in the incredible sunsets as they dip into the sea each night. ... more   less
