We stayed here for two nights; it's obviously an old hotel and definitely not cutting edge but was clean and serviceable; price included breakfast which was a cold breakfast but good with fruit, juice, yogurts, cereals and great coffee; the view out the back and from the breakfast room was lovely; i would recommend this hotel unless you were looking...

One of my many reviews. From our home in Manitoba we booked directly through Andrew at the Trailsman. He was very friendly and helpful in the booking and sight seeing recommendations for our bucket list trip. The motel has a great quiet location directly overlooking the lake. The motel was built in the 60s..about. It is well kept and comfortable.... More

I can't say enough about the excellent staff at the Trailsman Motel. From the time they took my reservations, checking in, offering extra towels, giving excellent directions and recommending great places to shop and dine.

The staff has been very attentive to our requests and very helpful (needed hair dryer, extra pillows and glasses). The Cabin type room we had #61 seemed to be recently renovated. It had laminate flooring, a new tub enclosure and tiles on the bathroom floor and walls. Nice look! The only thing I would recommend is that the Motel staff... More

Backdoor access to a fantastic view of Nyanza bay of Bras d'Or Lake, room is basic and a bit dated but reasonable clean that met our purpose. Wifi works. Friendly staff. Good continental breakfast in a dinner/recreation room with lake view. It had typical cold continental items and fruit salads with fresh honeydew, canned papaya and pineapples. For the price,...

This place is fairly comfortable, it is very quiet, a nice view on the water. The place needs to be updated. The reception was very warm, and she explain clearly the location of our room. The room was very clean and large. It is a good place to relax after a day's drive.

Nice place to stay and the continental breakfast was average - toast, muffins, fruits and cereal with coffee/tea/juice. Very close to the Cabot Trail (side note, the entrance to the Cabot Trail from this motel takes you from Baddeck to Margaree, so your going from the bottom of the map to the left). Area is very dark at night (no... More

Love the geese coming up on the lawn in the evenings. Large rooms, had great space to leave motorcycle gear in room. Great homemade breakfast food. We had a beautiful full moon rising over the lake while there. Easy access to the Cabot Trail and Baddeck.

Location and room was nice - friendly service. The room was clean and the beds were comfy. The stay was very enjoyable and the breakfast was well done as well. I am nit sure I would stay more than one night - not a lot to do in the area

This has been our 6th stay with the Trailsman and as ever, the service received is top notch. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, we also made good use of the mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Waking up to the view of Bras d'Or Lake makes this place a great value for the money. Although breakfast... More
