“Cute Inn - Cottage Pics”
Reviewed December 10, 2007

Cute Inn located right next to downtown. Beautiful landscaping. Great restaurant filled with antiques. Stayed in cottage. It is next to the property but on the main road so somewhat on the backside of the Inn. The cottage does not have a view of the water, but is enclosed with trees on all sides. Didn't see any pictures before booking, so wanted to share pictures taken when there. Note the jacuzzi is the bathtub jacuzzi.

  • Liked — Beautifully Decorated
  • Disliked — Somewhat scary to be in building off by itself (cottage)

We stayed 2 nights at the Lynwood Inn and were extremely satisfied. It exceeded our expectations.
The reception was friendly and very efficient and helpful. We booked a room in the new building and were delighted. It was a large airy spotlessly clean room. Most comfortable including the beds. Bathroom facilities were well above average too.
We were very pleased to find a well equipped guest laundry too, very welcome halfway through our holiday.
The hotel is well positioned in the town and is easy walking distance to the lake and centre. There are plenty of restaurants of excellent quality but we had our meals at the Bell Buoy Restaurant where I had the shrimp and my husband had the scallops both excellent taste and value. A really nice view too.
We had our breakfast in the hotel restaurant and that too was plentiful, hot and good value. My husband lost a tooth filling and the staff were so helpful trying to find a dentist for him.
I would highly recommend this hotel for a base or for a couple of days as you tour Cape Breton.

We stayed three nights at the Lynwood, in room #2 of the inn. The room was large, comfortable, and beautifully decorated with a four poster queen sized bed and antique furnishings. It was so convenient to simply walk downstairs to the restaurant, and we thought the food was quite good. We had breakfast there every morning, and dinner twice. The location was great; we could easily walk to all major attractions. Our only complaint was that the telephone in our room had a terrible buzzing sound, which made it difficult to hear when we tried to place a call. When we mentioned it to the front desk, they said that it was an ongoing problem. It was an inconvenience to have to go outside our room to make calls. In spite of that, we would definitely stay at the Lynwood again if we return to Baddeck.

I stayed one night at the Lynwood Inn on my way through to Glace Bay. The rooms were very clean, and beautiful! The restaurant is a bit pricy for the small portions that are served, but there are other nice places to eat just a few minutes away. Recommend it!!

We recently based the Cape Breton part of our holiday in Baddeck and stayed 8 nights at the Lynwood and enjoyed every one of them.

The owners and staff went out of their way to help and answer any questions we had.

Our room had a balcony with a wonderful view of the lake. The room itself was spacious, clean and very comfortable and the bathroom very modern.

Baddeck itself was a wonderful place and the Lynwood Inn is situated opposite the information centre and ideal for exploring the village.

We had a great stay and couldn't find fault with the Lynwood at all.

The rooms are clean, new, and comfortable. The restaurant is closed in the off-season. The place is owned by the same family that runs Telegraph House just across the street. Several reviews have been written about the "just don't care" attitude of the staff there and it seems to carry across into the Lynnwood. The basic attitude seems to be that they could care less whether or not you stayed there and at times you are a burden from keeping them from their other pursuits. This attitude is rare in the normally gracious people from Cape Breton. Maybe the owners have been in the business too long.

We stayed here during our family trip to Nova Scotia for 2 nights. The place is beautiful, clean and friendly - just like those other reviews state. No need to duplicate entries- highly recommended!

We ate at the restaurant - lobster special for $19.95. Very good. I would also recommed the Baddeck Lobster supper right down the street- great food in a different atmoshere.
