Comfortable room, but needs updating. No refrigerator in the room although the staff were helpful and arranged space in the restaurant's refrigerator. The ocean view was beautiful, too bad the window was small and there was no balcony. Not good value for the money.

We spent two nights here and played golf ar the Highlands golf course. The location is top notch, but the inn itself is much the worse for the wear since we were here some years ago. The rooms have a certain shabby quality now and the whole place needs a sprucing up. There were broken tiles in the bathroom and... More

Beautiful views. Set along the trail. If you are looking for a night full of partying.. This is not the place for you! The staff was wonderful and the rooms are clean. Breakfast with a view... Great!! Would stay here again next time we are through!

The guest rooms in the inn are starting to be updated, but there are still many things lacking. Bath mats, towels and face clothes all need to be replaced. The beds are pretty good, as are the sheets, quilts and comforters. The pillows need to be discarded and replaced immediately! I think that the pillows used by Fred Flintstone were... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay here, much preferring its quiet charm, compared to bigger resorts like the Keltic Lodge nearby. After the fog cleared, we enjoyed watching the sun set and clouds roll over mountains and ocean from the outside deck. We even hiked a small private trail nearby that led to waterfalls and a view of Castle Rock... More

We spent 2 nights at the inn. The room was spacious and attractively furnished. The bed was very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was delicious with cereals, yoghurt and numerous toppings (berries, nuts, raisins and nuts), soft boiled eggs, sausages or Canadian bacon, and various breads and pastries. The water views from the dining room were spectacular and we would definitely... More

My wife and I just got back from staying here. Really there is NO WHERE else to stay after we stayed here. This place is just peaceful. My wife was very adamant our next trip to the Highlands better have us staying here too. The views of the ocean to the sun sets... well just no place like it. Check... More

I highly recommend this gorgeous inn. The owners are lovely. The views are extraordinary. The location is ideal for day trips throughout Cape Breton. It is a worthwhile visit. You won't be disappointed.

Lovely inn on a scenic property overlooking the ocean. Staff were warm and friendly and the service was excellent. The room was spacious and warm. We had most of our meals in the hotel dining room and the food was amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
