Our room was great, looked like it had been newly renovated, was very comfortable with a great view and sitting area on a deck outside of the room. The ground were lovely and very well cared for, and also the private beach. All the staff were very helpful and the restaurant was perfect.
The motel is located in a very scenic area and there is a nice gift store in the area. Would definately go back to stay again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with an Ocean View

This is a great place to stay when travelling along the Cabot Trail. Staff were great at answering questions via email before and after booking. Our room was quite big and we enjoyed the view. Breakfast was available in the restaurant for a very reasonable price. Also very helpful to have a laundry room on site!

We stopped here last summer with a family of 4; were we ever surprised. There is lots of land to explore here and the owners encourage u to make use of it. There are outdoor fire pits and if ou walk around some very breathtaking views....food ok...hospitality great... And nice rooms that have all been renovated and modernized...would recommend stopping here for sure.

Room Tip: Explore what is beyond the room!

Five star this is not- it is a pedestrian motel at the side of a road. But the road happens to be the Cabot Trail, and this is half way through it (between Ingonish and Chedicamp- which both have superior accoms.) And the motel looks out onto a gorgeous little harbour and out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence).

Land must have been very cheap when they bought it- as they own something like 30 acres, and have a grand driveway, strung with lights, huge lawns, laundromat, restaurant, a nice hill with chairs out for sunset viewing, and of course the requisite ample parking.

The units are decently upgraded, good bathrooms, though the beds, I agree, are pretty dicey. Why not queens, with better mattresses, I don't know. Perhaps it's on their to do list...

But quiet, with great views right from the units, the occasional moose (we didn't see one)- the perfect stop after a nice hike on the Skyline Trail in the park.

The restaurant could be a movie set for a cheap diner, replete with gossipy kitchen staff, a pretty basic menu that looked as if it had not changed since 1956.

But the food was great- home cut fries with their haddock, good chowder. They did a half portion for one in our party which was more like 3/4 portion- for $8.95. Their wine list included some decent labels, and their by-the-glass house white was Jost chardonnay- quite good, and only $5.95.

The staff were a bit brisk, to be expected at the end of a busy season. They were planning to shut down within a couple of weeks. Yet, when engaged individually, they were fountains of local knowledge, proud to be Cape Bretoners, and genuinely worked hard to keep a ma and pa operation going.

I found the experience authentic and refreshing.

Room Tip: Spring the extra $10 or so for the ocean view rooms.

Rooms are OK, even those w/o ocean view have nice view, ours had a view on art artifacts in the middle of grass. We eat only breakfast in the restaurant, which is moderate at best. Staff is friendly and place is great to enjoy in national park, whale waching.
