“Great value and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

Stayed here for a week while on a golf vacation in CB. A good central location so that you can commute to all the island's courses in a bit more than an hour (Cabot links, The Lakes, Highland links, Dundee, Bell Bay). Breakfast was good, both a la carte and buffet. Very help staff

Room Tip: If you want a LARGE room, ask for the room on the top floor, parking lot side, at the far end of the...

Please make your plans early as we would love to have you stay with us again if you get to Cape Breton for another golf vacation during 2014.

We stayed two nights in a chalet at the Silver Dart. The room could have used some updating but we couldn't have been more pleased. It was large, clean, very quiet and fully stocked with dishes, utensils, etc in the kitchenette. The deck, with it's lovely view, was a pleasant place to sit at the end of a day of hiking and sightseeing or to have coffee in the morning. It is a little far to walk to town but there was plenty of parking so this wasn't a problem. Once we got to the Silver Dart we knew we had chosen the right hotel for our needs!

Room Tip: I think the chalets are the best option. They are away from everything and very quiet.

My husband and I stayed at The Silver Dart Resort for 3 nights in October, during the Celtic Colours Festival. It was terrific! Our room had been renovated and was very spacious, and we even had a view of the lake! We appreciated having a fridge in our room. The buffet breakfast was excellent and, again, we had a view of the lake. Our server could not have been more pleasant or accommodating and the desk staff was the same. We would definitely stay here again--in fact I am planning a trip back, next year, with my daughter. We are not the type of travellers who who want to spend a huge amount for frills, so our room in The Silver Dart Resort suited us perfectly. We had a standard room with a king size bed. It was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in!

Room Tip: I have not seen all the rooms, but I know there are several types available, including cottages. It...

a pretty nice located resort. We visted after we finished our skyline trail and stayed there for a night in Aug 2012. Good choice if you travel with a group of people. Nice backyard. Room is big and clean.

Decent view in the breakfast area...a nice stay......

The lady in the informaiton center of Cape breton helped us booked this hotel and arranged the free breakfast.

Beyond the control of the Silver Dart staff was the perfect Cape Breton fall color, but they were able to complement the season with outstanding service. The front desk staff, the servers, the chef, the housekeeping staff - all encounters were a pleasure. I have experienced pieces of a hotel's resources at a high rate of service, but rarely do I come across such a comprehensive high standard of delivery from all involved. The crew at the Silver Dart understands their business. Well done.

Room Tip: Mac Neil House is the jewel on the hill with the finest view of the Bras d"or Lakes.

I stayed at the Silver Dart for a week. The facility was just fine, the scenery and location were great, but the best thing about my stay there was the friendly, helpful staff. Every person with whom I had contact went out of their way to make me feel welcomed. I will certainly recommend the Silver Dart to friends, and stay there on my next trip to Baddeck!
