While other reviews cost this hotel as basic and average, we found it to be charming and quaint. The room was clean and country like. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the grounds were well kept. It was just what we were looking for in this charming village. Definitely not fancy but clean and comfortable and that is what...

We stayed 4 nights at the Ceilidh and used Baddeck as our home base for touring Cape Breton. The staff were always kind and helpful. The rooms are very outdated, but adequate. The Bras D'Or lake views from the deck in front of each building are lovely. Breakfast was abysmal and we ended up eating elsewhere the last 2 days.... More

This was one of the few places that still had room for the busy season. Staff are friendly and helpful. A family of 4 we stayed 2 nights. The rooms are old and basic but clean and tidy and that's what matters. The surroundings are well kept and picturesque. It's walking distance from the main town. The breakfast was basic... More

I recently stayed one night at Ceilidh Country Lodge and found it to be a welcoming and friendly inn. The room was tidy and the bed was comfortable but a bit dated. Not fancy but quite nice. The continental breakfast was appreciated and pretty tasty with lots of options including: toast, oatmeal, cereal, hardboiled eggs and more. The coffee was... More

We had a wonderful time staying here.The lodge is beautiful and surrounded by gardens. The staff was so friendly and kind. Our room was lovely, we had a beautiful view of the water and our room was clean and very cozy. The lodge was just walking distance from downtown Baddeck and the waterfront. Breakfast was delicious, especially the muffins. We... More

We stopped here for one night in a standard double room that was more like a motel room than a upmarket country lodge, location and breakfast were good.Of our three week tour of Nova Scotia this was the most expensive but not the best.

The outside of the property looks great, all painted nicely , landscape all groomed, but the inside...not so good. The furniture is totally outdated, the washrooms need total renovation and the beds ....we all woke up with a sore back, including my 12 year old son. We tried the plugs and half of them didn't work ( Hire an electrician!).... More

We stayed here for two night so we could travel the Cabot Trail. The hotel was lovely, grounds well kept, beautiful flowers, view of the Bras Dor Lakes, peaceful. The room was comfortable and super clean. The air conditioners are noisy so I did not use mine, beautiful breeze anyway. Breakfast was ok, not a lot of healthy selections, I... More

Outside the property is outstanding. The owners need to now invest in some room updates. It has been 35 years after all. Bathroom was supremely out dated. No counter space, old worn out faucet, old orange lino, yellow vanity. Tub has been refinished in white with original fixtures. Shower temp varies greatly. Two twin beds, small with uncooperative sheets and... More

We had a marvellous stay in Baddeck, a wonderful wee place. Our stay was greatly enhanced through staying in the Ceilidh Country Lodge. Great room with a view over Lake Bras d'Or, lovely breakfast room with a lovely breakfast hosted by Harry and Audrey and their ever friendly crew. Tours around the Cabot Trail available and thoroughly enjoyable. Over the... More
