Check in was easy and friendly. Receptionist moved our rooms to be closer to our friends without us requesting this - a real nice touch. Rooms were clean, well appointed with flat screen TV, fridge and coffee maker. Two queen beds were very comfortable. View out over the lake to die for and on-site restaurant perfect for supper and breakfast. Traffic noise from the highway could be loud at times but as night wore on this reduced considerably. Great place to stay about 10km before Baddeck.

Thank you for all your comments we take all reviews seriously. We have sent your concerns to housekeeping. I am so sorry that we let you down and I assure you that our expectation is equal to yours. I can assure you that your concerns have not fallen on deaf ears and that we will address them accordingly. We are in the process of replacing the flooring in the rooms one at a time as the lament didn't hold up as well as we expected. There is a setting in the rooms that controls the heat pump versus the baseboard heat, maintenance is checking to make sure all rooms are set on baseboard heat as that is our best source of heat in the winter. Could you please give us a call at 1-800-565-2668 to further discuss your water issue.

I stayed at the Clansman last week when I couldn't get a room in Sydney because the Scotties Tournament was in town. I'll be staying at the Clansman on all my trips to the Sydney area from now on. The room was clean and very comfortable. The food in their restaurant was great and very reasonably priced and their staff are exceptional. It's everything I look for in a motel, plus they have the restaurant. Very convenient.

We stayed at a Cottage, it was Awesome , large 2 bedrooms 2 full bathrooms,kitchen fully equipped and lovely family room with fireplace. The Best was the lovely deck and comfy chairs with a bbq .beautiful setting with a lovely outdoor pool. It was quiet and peaceful. We loved being so close to supermarkets, drug store and liquor store, we could walk. We also enjoyed the restaurant on site everyday, good food and friendly service. I have to mention the beds, they were so comfortable, you could open the windows which is a big plus for me. Another this motel is Pet Friendly, I will be bringing my little dog next time. The cottage was spotless and the service , Excellent, All employes were so friendly and helpful. It’s a Great place to stay to see some of Cape Brent’s famous treasures, All in driving distance, or overnight to get the ferry to Newfoundland to relax a while. We will definitely stay at the Clansman Motel and recommend it for sure, Thank You to the staff for our lovely 4 night stay, it was a pleasure.
