“Nice sleep but very poor service in the restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2011

We visit Baddeck for 2 nights and find the Lynwood look very cozy..
Afther we had seen the rooms we took the Victorian room this was a nice and clean room and we had a good nights rest.
The restaurant had nice places outsite and there was live music but the serving was very bad we had to wait at least 20 min before someone of the restaurant react on our presents.
They were very un-frendly and afther ordering it took again 30 minits to get our drinks and foot. The quality and tast of the foot was also poor.
If you see the rooms its oke but service in the restaurant is bad you feel not welcom.

The room was much nicer than expected. Everything was very classy. The hotel was within walking distance of the town and the attractions. The restaurant on the property had a wide menu and excellent food.

This place at first glance looked very cozy and welcoming, so we decided to try out the restaurant. There was live music and places to sit outside. We stood waiting around for 10 minutes until someone decided to seat us. Once seated we waited 20 minutes for someone to ask us what we wanted to drink. It then took another 20 minutes to get them. The food came after and was average. Fries were cooked to a crisp. We asked for vinegar, which she brought when we were close to finishing our meal. We waited a long while once we were done to get the bill... we mentioned to her about the fries and she did absolutely nothing to help. Handed us our bill and left. Other tables had empty plates as well and were waiting... bussers were standing around doing nothing. I could not believe it!! Went to pay at the front of the restaurant inside.. asked if I could have my reciept and he said he needs the copy and would take a few minutes to make a photocopy. At this point we walked away and will never look back!

Dining and music on the porch is quite nice. Many rooms available; some decor updating might be in order. No elevator. Self-laundry. Coffee not available in the room. Scant towels. Shower is invigorating. Great light blocking curtains but additional sheers could provide more privacy from the road. Clean and comfortable. WiFi not available to all rooms. A/C somewhat noisy and close to the bed; however, there are large windows with screens for fresh air. Friendly front desk assistance and table service hit or miss. Walking distance to water/docks and main drag in town. Parking is free, just outside lodging. Location is key for getting onto the Cabot Trail.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony, table and chairs; these are limited.

I was not impressed with this establishment at all! From the outside it looks very nice and well kept. Unfortunately the same doesn't show on the inside! Take a good look around and you will notice the accumulated dust on everything, filthy carpets and nothing but pure clutter. The staff is spread much too thin and you have to wait at length for even the simpliest requests. They make no attempt to resolve any issues brought to their attention and simply put the blame back to the customer. The rooms are average at best and not kept up as should be. STAY ELSEWHERE!

First, let me say the room was quiet and comfortable and clean, and had an awesome view of the fall foliage and lake. But that's not why I'm bothering to write. My husband left a bag behind, a large thermal bag, with several spoiled-food-containing rubbermaid containers in it. They called us at home even before we knew we were missing it, and amazingly, had their housekeeping clean out the by-then really disgusting containers and with our approval, arranged to ship all of it to our home, charging the shipping cost and the most tiny token of a handling "fee" to our room credit card. I just can't believe they went to so much trouble for us! I've had other good experiences with friendly Nova Scotian hotel-related staff, but the Lynwood Inn folks really went way beyond what was reasonable to ask. I hope to visit Cape Breton many more times, and Lynwood Inn is now top of my list for places to stay!
