This is set behind the Silver Dart Lodge. We were here at the end of 3 weeks touring and it was lovely to have such spacious accommodation with good cooking facilities - you can get fed up of eating out all the time. The living room is large with a convertible sofa/bed if there are more than 2 of you.... More

We had dinner here, as we were staying at the silver dart. The staff was great, the dinning room was nicely done and allowed all tables to take in the view. The only reason it is 4, was due to the seafood pasta dish. It should have been called vegetable pasta dish with some seafood in it. My wife liked... More

Great place to stay in beautiful Baddeck. Good location, with beautiful surroundings. The suite had a fireplace, fully equipped kitchen and jacuzzi tub. Very quiet and pleasant accommodations, would stay here again.

This motel is close to the ferry to Newfoundland, and that is about all I can say. The beds were horribly uncomfortable, and everything was old and musty smelling, but it was clean. Okay for the overnight before the ferry, but I certainly wouldn't stay longer than that. Woman in office not friendly, but not nasty either.
