Stayed two nights while touring Cabot Trail in July 2016. Property was clean, albeit old. Beds were adequate. Hot water temp control was a bit spotty, but overall was a good night's sleep. Continental Breakfast was quite basic but again adequate. Owner seems involved and seems to want to make it better. Wi-Fi was present, but super slow.

As most have mentioned, the hotel needs updating but the new owners are very eager to make your stay a pleasant one. There are lots of complaints about the breakfast but it is listed as a Continental breakfast and that is what you get. A few cereals, oatmeal, toast, bagels and muffins, about average for places that offer Continental and... More

New owners are super nice and the place is still a good value, but having stayed here many times in the past, I'm very disappointed in the "breakfast". Gone are the locally made oat cakes, the cheese plates, and fresh mixed fruit bowl, gone are the pots of brewed tea. Everything replaced with the cheapest substitutes. The real ceramic plates...

Our first room was visibly spotless, but the carpet had a strong musty odor. Clearly, someone had left the window open and it rained. I asked for another room, and the owner was very pleasant. The second had the same problem, the third had only one bed, but the fourth room was perfect. The owner mentioned he'd only had the... More

Nice room. Very clean. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The motel was also conveniently located near the Cabot Trail and right on the renown Bras d'Or Lake. The continental breakfast is free and there is also free Wi-Fi. All in all, I'd say this place is an exceptional value for money.
