I booked this hotel based on its fantastic Tripadvior reviews, and agree wholeheartedly that it's without a doubt the best hotel on Cape Breton. There's few hotels that leave an impression for life, where you can be talking to someone 30 years down the road and remember the name / location / exact feeling of the place....Burton's is and will be on my short list. The views / sunsets are stir the soul, no words can do it justice. Just picture standing in a grassy field perched high above rocky cliffs, with the Gulf of St. Lawrence as your backyard, whales spouting and singing offshore. Simply majestic. Mel and Debbie are wonderful hosts and people. Mel kept me entertained for hours with stories and history about the area. They both scolded me (rightfully so) for not calling then ahead to secure some lobsters for a dinner (a mistake I will not make in the future!). The rooms are huge, tastefully decorated, and clean to the point that you can eat off the floors. Mattress / pillows were the most comfortable I slept on while on a 11-day trek through the maritime provinces. Open the windows at night and let the cool ocean breezes rush through and lull you to sleep. Keltic Lodge gets all the hype in the area and does have great views, but Burton's offers better views (in my opinion) with incredible sunsets, and all the personal touches that the bigger places lack. If you don't end up taking up their offer to boil lobsters for you, drive to the Rusty Anchor restaurant (about 35 minutes) for more world class views and very good food.
