We stayed two nights and enjoyed our semi-detached chalet room. It was large with a good sized bathroom, fridge and some nice amenities like wine glasses! A big bonus is a laundry room right on the property which is very nice when on a longish road trip. The room had a nice view of the bay. We ate in the restaurant one night and it was perfectly adequate but the lodge is also within walking distance of a couple of other places. This was a good stop-over for Baddeck.

Stayed here one night during the Celtic Colours Festival. Staff are very friendly and helpful but the hotel itself is meh for the price ...pretty tired. We had supper at McCurdy's and that was disappointing as well. They do offer a shuttle to the Festival Club at night which was a plus.

This was the only place i could find to stay in Baddeck, was only there for one night. Didn't have time to check out the restaurant. They have 24 hr front desk, very friendly check in, nice lobby. We were in a room in the east lobby, had a shared deck facing the water (across road not on water but a nice view). Room wasn't bad but was somewhat outdated. Was clean, white bedding, had a 2 dbl beds and a couch w/table. Nice for one night, wouldn't really want to stay longer than that. Looks very nice on outside, nicer than inside rooms. No complaints. Great place to stop for the night to start or end your cape Breton Trail drive.

Older resort on a bluff overlooking the enormous lake in Baddeck. Ask for a view on the second floor. Rooms are clean and well planned...definitely get a lot of use as bus tours in this area are common. However, although not fancy, the furniture was attractive and comfortable. The outdoor shared deck extends the view and is a lovely place to have coffee or a libation. The price of the room was quite fair and the location perfect. The lovely town of Baddeck has great restaurants. We did not try the resort restaurant or bar, but heard it was good. We wd definitely stay here again.
