we loved our stays at the Trailsman Motel, comfy beds, clean room's, beautiful views, pool, friendly,helpful staff, thats why we booked a year in advance last year for this July. Please check it as we did, you will love your stay too.

Room Tip: try to book a room facing the back, over looking the water.

This charming motel is really clean and tidy. Well maintained. Don't be afraid of a motel. The mattresses provided a wonderful sleep. The motel also included one of the best continental breakfasts as it included homemade bread for toast, cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, bowl of apples, cereal, tea and yogurt. Our host was an elderly woman who was so kind and she explained they used to offer dinner but times have changed that. She was lovely and we told her how much we enjoyed our stay. Prices were reasonable and everyone was so kind and considerate.

Room Tip: Great place to sleep while driving the Cabot trail.

This is a good basic older roadside motel. It appears to be well maintained, the rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Rooms have a great view of the lake. Staff members we met were all friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was fine. The one drawback is the highway noise, but that wasn't too bad.

We stopped off at this great little motel on our trip around Cape Breton. The room decor was a bit dated and the room was a little stale. The room was well equipped with fridge and free wifi and the view of the lac bras d'or fantastic. The continental breakfast was adequate and self-service.

A wonderful motel to start the Cabot Trail from. Clean, comfortable rooms and a great morning breakfast to start. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights there. We spent one day wandering around Baddeck, where things were just opening for the season. Second day was 8 hours around the Cabot Trail with time to walk the Middlehead trail and the Skyview trail. Both were fairly easy and even in cloudy weather were wonderful. To be able to go back to the Trailsman Motel to relax after was a treat and the owners made everything easy for us. You may not get a room, as this is a popular destination but I would definitely try!

Had a lovely room overlooking the lake, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was lovely, pretty dining room. Breakfast baked goods were from a local bakery and very yummy. Gal at the front desk directed us to wonderful place along the trail.

When we arrived to check in, the lady at the reservation desk was wonderful. Very easy and efficient check in...asked her recommendation for a restaurant for dinner, and she had menus for three locals restaurants, plus told us of other restaurants we could go to! The room was clean, but older, but very comfortable, and the view was beautiful - right on the Bras d'Or Lake. Complimentary breakfast had a wide variety of foods, something for everyone. Would stay there again, and definitely recommend this place to others.
