This is a wonderful location and resort for those who enjoy an incredible location of the sea, a variety of hiking trails that run parallel with the coast, and beautiful weather with a cool breeze. The entire staff and personnel are welcoming, always responding with a smile, and great service all around from the reception office to the restaurants, I.e.,... More

The area is stunning.the views are food for the soul.......unless you get the room I'm in from which you can see parked cars! I feel the atmosphere is one of haughtiness ...I can't really explain it but I am not comfortable.there is no ice machine in this building and they do say in the guest book they will be happy...

We stayed here for an overnight as we were making a full "go around" trip. The place is dated but maintained extremely well. New building accommodations are quite nice. we stayed in new loft style unit "on the water" ! Food service was quite slow but our server constantly kept us aware of the progress in the kitchen. Reservation recommended;... More

I can only imagine what this resort must have looked like back in the day. Sadly, it is a shell of it's former glory and do be warned that it's not all what it's cracked up to be. This resort photographs beautifully...gives the impression of a classic resort from a bygone era, but it is not a classic resort anymore... More

Keltic Lodge is a bit old world - which seems perfectly fitting for the spectacular Cape Breton Highlands area of Nova Scotia. Perched overlooking a marvelous bluff that reaches into the St. Lawrence Seaway, the hotel has adequate-spaced rooms, period furnishings, a very good value pricing plan (esp for golfers) and fine dinners. Spa facilities are modest, but sufficient.The air... More

This is a classic resort from a bygone era. Any minute I expect to see Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze walking around the corner. It is not 1963 in the Catskills, but it could be. It has a gentle elegance and grandeur. The location has spectacular vistas everywhere you look. The resort has a variety of accommodations from swanky rooms... More

Enjoyed a room with a patio facing Cape Smokey and the ocean. Views just as great from the front of Corson House. The views were matched by the level of service by the staff. Great breakfast in the main lodge. A piece of heaven surrounded by the mountains and ocean. Highly recommend it on your bucket list.

The Kelt hasn't changed in 12 years. Though some renovations have occurred the price doesn't reflect the accommodation unfortunately. It is still the "best" in the area, but has a long way to go. Internal turmoil and management issues don't help. Breakfast is good as long as you don't have to eat there more than twice as fare never changes... More

The hotel was nice. We did not stay in the main lodge. There was a wedding on, so there was no where to have lunch other than the golf course. Poor service there, so should have drove back to town. That is another story. The hotel rooms were nice, 4 of us in the room. Looked out over the ocean... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at the Keltic Lodge- 1 night in the main lodge and 1 in Corson lodge. In the former, the rooms were rustic but charming. We did not have high expectations of luxury but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. No AC but there was a lovely sea breeze. We... More
