We had the room at the front, next to the office and restaurant. It was very noisy as we could here them banging dishes and pots around until after 10 pm. It was distracting when watching TV as well. Lovely view from that room but would have been better one or two rooms over from where we were. Food in the restaurant that night was not good. Had a hot turkey sandwich and the meat was all dried up and veggies were cold. We complained and they didn't charge for the meal but we were disappointed (and still hungry).

Room Tip: Stay away from the restaurant and office area.

Rooms are so-so. A bit on the humid/old/tired side. Could benefit from some renovation. The manager lady was very friendly and extremely helpful. The breakfast (not included in the price) was very good - excellent omelets. Convenient location if you are biking, close to the beginning of the Cabot Trail.

Older, cheaper look to motel but so is the price. We just wanted a place to rest our head before we headed for home the next day. Bed was comfy.
The restaurant was packed at 7 pm and we didn't get our food until after 8 pm after getting up at 4:30 am to catch the NL ferry. The table that ordered the same time as us had 3 small kids who had to sit the full hour as well. The father complained and got their meal free. We understood they only had one cook but what annoyed me is that 2 other tables that ordered at least 1/2 hour after us got their appetizers before we did. The waitress didn't have time to come back to ask us if we wanted another beer while we waited patiently. We won't be back...

We had room 48, which has a great view of the lake. We found the room clean, fairly up to date (maybe not brand new) and had enough room. The bathroom was also clean and fairly up to date and everything worked great. The A/C worked good, as did the TV.

The restaurant food was good, but the service was lacking, only because they seemed to be overwhelmed and maybe should have had one more server - not that they were rude or anything.

It isn't too far to drive into town for dinner and attractions, but too far to walk.

We stayed there over the weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. The pool was nice and clean, which kept the kids entertained, room was nice and clean and the price is great! The wharf across the highway on the Bras d'Or lakes was beautiful, they were going to have a bonfire that night at the wharf for the guests, but the thunder and lightning with rain put a damper on that.... The staff were extremely friendly...Looking forward to another getaway there very soon! :)
