On our recent bike trip of the Cabot Trail (which we did counter-clockwise - the wrong direction!) we stayed at Castlerock. We were late in booking so we weren't sure what to expect. The Inn was lovely. The staff were so nice. We ended up biking through a rain storm and got completely soaked. The staff allowed us to dry... More

We chose this place due to location along Cabot Trail. Its setting is lovely-you can sit on the deck for breakfast or an evening drink and lovely Adirondack chairs out back to watch nature. The staff was always around to be helpful and were very friendly. Rooms reminiscent of many hotels in Wisconsin or Michigan. Knotty pine wall, queen bed... More

A quaint Inn overlooking the Atlantic, distant peninsula, mountains and islands. The views from the room, dining area and deck are second to none. Think Maine coast x2. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and varied. All the evening meals we had were great.We stayed for five days doing day trips to most of the towns, natural parks, hikes and beaches... More

We had a wonderful week long family vacation at the Castlerock Country Inn. It is a very convenient and picturesque place on the Cabot Trail. We had an easy time taking day trips to hike, kayak and sightsee, and it was nice to come back to a good restaurant and a wonderfully comfortable bed at night. The owner and head... More

This Inn is very centrally located-- close to all of the beautiful trails in Ingonish. It is rural and peaceful but also close to some amenities like liquor stores and gas stations, which is great when you're so far from anything. The food is great, and the wine list is amazing. I loved their local wine that they had in... More

We stayed in this inn because it was slightly cheaper than the majestic Keltic Inn. However, the Castlerock was still very expensive (about 250$ a night) and we were very deceived (but happy we were only there for one night). The room was very small and old fashioned. Nothing was really matching and the furniture looked like it came out... More

I had my dog with me and they were pet-friendly. The room was super quaint and it was in the basement by the side door, so I could easily take the dog outside. The front desk staff warned me that the room was going to be in the basement with the dining room above, so I was prepared for that.... More

A lovely B&b with magnificent views. Room on ground floor is spacious with sofa, table and two dining chairs. Accessible by two steps into main floor and dining room. Deck off dining room offers shady seating and lovely views. Very friendly greeting with fresh homemade cookies. Check what is open locally for dining as this B&b is expensive.

We enjoyed our stay at Castlerock Country Inn. The location is really lovely & they have chairs out on the lawn that overlook the water and you can watch for eagles as they fly by. The bed was comfortable and the rooms are small but ok. Breakfast of eggs & sausage was good & the raisin toast was fantastic.

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.
