First the quirks - make sure you have the exact location/directions. This is a remote location and it is set well back from the road. Also, I like scent free premises, but I don't recall this policy being advertised. I also like firm beds, and in the MacDonald room at least, the bed is very firm. Lastly, no choice of... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Tulloch Inn! Very clean, well-appointed room. Bright and fresh, with a gorgeous view of the gardens and lake. We both found the bed to be super firm, but that is a matter of taste. The owner was friendly and we enjoyed our chats with him during our delicious breakfast. We would stay... More

We stayed on a snowy weekend getaway and couldn't have asked for more. We were in a suite overlooking the lake which was lovely and very comfortable. It was so peaceful and quiet. The evening meals were outstanding in the diningroom, as were the breakfasts. Unlike some other reviews, we found the hosts to be very friendly and welcoming. We... More

We made a last minute reservation at the Tulloch Inn when we were in Inverness. It is approximately 15 minutes away from Inverness, but well worth the drive. We stayed in one of the king size rooms facing Lake Ainslie and it was amazing. The room was spacious, comfortable, and clean. We were served a warm breakfast accompanied by home... More

I have been hanging around Cape Breton on and off for ten years and never heard of the Tulloch and it would have stayed that way but for the fact of a scheduled trip before the "season" when most everything is still closed for business. But not the Tulloch which runs all year. This is a lovely and relatively new... More

I stayed here during the 2015 Celtic Colours Festival & was impressed with every detail of Tulloch Inn. It was such a restful location with beautiful landscaping. Of course the Autumn colours added to the experience. Comfortable mattresses, immaculately clean, & a tasty breakfast. Keith & Betty were gracious & accommodating, serving a delicious scallop supper in time so we... More

Located off of West Lake Ainslie Road, there is a very small sign at the end of a very long, eerie and winding road onto a beautiful property facing the Lake. Keep your eyes peeled - the sign is easy to miss - especially if night driving! After driving onto the property, my husband tapped on a sliding door to... More

We we visiting Cape Breton for the Celtic Colours and had concerts in Whycocomagh, Judique, and Mabou. We decided on the Tulloch Inn as a somewhat central place where we could stay multiple days and not have to move around every night. It was an hour to Judique but only 1/2 hour to the other places and even closer to... More

An excellent property with magnificent views over Lake Ainslie, it's tucked away down a long rather rough drive through the woods which gives it great atmosphere. On ringing the bell we were met by the owner we introduced ourselves as having booked on-line the previous day but he didn't know anything about us and rather reluctantly we were let in.... More
