Stayed there while playing some of the local golf courses. We had dinner and listened to music our first night and enjoyed it a great deal. We had fresh halibut and salmon which was delicious. We stayed in a chalet which had a pleasant view. The mattress was a bit lumpy but we enjoyed the privacy and location. The service... More

This is a fun budget tour, $7 each. we went on a Weekend morning, and had Emily as a guide,I don't think this is her regular job, but she was amazing and funny. She explained the process very clearly, and at the end we enjoyed a little bit of the product. There is a very nice gift shop also, if... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights and were very disappointed. The inn is very impersonal and the house keeping service was dreadful. Our beds were made and the towels put back in the bathroom but bins were left unemptied and coffee cups unwashed. The food in the restaurant was good but over priced. The lock on the door of...

We started in the pub with a snack and listened to some fiddle/piano music that was quite good. As I looked around the dining room, I saw most people had their toes tapping in time with the music. We tried a flight of their whiskys. It was a good way to sample what they had. I would recommend they eliminate... More

Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to tell others about your time here. Our flight is designed to show the evolution of our product through the aging process so although it isn't ever the favourite it is important to have the un-aged (raw) alcohol in the flight to get a sense of where it all begins.

We wanted to visit this distillery but settled for a late lunch on our way from Moncton to Baddeck. The food was just ok, but the flight of whiskey samples was terrific. We were able to sample 4 of their distilled whiskies (the fifth sample was raw spirits which we didn't touch) for a reasonable price. There was live music... More

We had lunch today, first visit but not the last. It was absolutely delicious and very nicely served by a lovely waitress. Our first visit but not our last. One of us had the strip loin sandwich, the other had the shaved beef brisket, both delicious! Highly recommended!

Glenora Inn is on a lovely property, but we arrived on a comfortable day when the sun was heating our room. The air conditioner made no difference when we turned it on and the fan didn't help either. We retreated to the delightful patio of the pub. The room was still miserable when we returned before dinner. After dinner, the... More

We were really looking forward to touring the distillery and tasting the scotch but were left feeling that we had wasted our time. Our guide was fine and imparted the information but not in a compelling way. The scotch was okay; just okay.

Dropped by for the tour and a look at the Inn, very nice. And at the end of the distillery tour, you get a sample! Even nicer. Our tour guide wasn't as knowledgeable as some of the tourists but she did fine. Gift shop is lovely and the restaurant looks wonderful.

My dream dashed...my wife and I visited the distillery in 2003 and returned this year hoping to relive fond memories and share with my now 3 sons. I even saved and brought my now empty original 2003 Rare bottle, box in hand, hoping to share our story and maybe walk away with a nostalgic refill. Wow, what a dream crusher.... More
