I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It is clean and comfortable, and great for moderate walkers who like to walk into town. The Silver Dart offers 2 trails from the hotel grounds. One is just a short jaunt to the beach. The motel-style lodging to the left of the lobby as you drive in is nice inside. I... More

The housekeeping was excellent, very thorough and pleasant. For the price, on site laundry could have been offered. Restaurant was nice enough, but the prices were high end for middle of the line meal.

We've stayed at the Silver Dart several times, both for Celtic Colours and otherwise, as its location makes it well-situated to reach any location on Cape Breton within a couple of hours' drive.

We stayed on Thanksgiving weekend as part of a car tour group. It was very clean and the service good. The suites are in an old house, and although they have all the comforts of home, they smell quite musty. We moved to the chalets the next night and these are much better. The only negative is the pricing in... More
