Lynwood Inn
Ranked #9 of 17 Baddeck B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 July 2013

We came to Baddeck because it is centrally located to visit the many places on Cape Breton Island (North East end of Nova Scotia). It is an excellent location to negotiate the picturesque Cabot Trail and has several advantages. It is the location of the Alexander Graham Bell museum. It is 10 minutes from the Gaelic College. It is a village that is quiet and has a beautiful harbor. Turns out that Alex Bell picked the location for his home away from Washington, DC so that gives you a clue about the environment. There is a great boardwalk for quiet walks at habor edge - Bell and his wife can be found hanging out there any day you would like to meet them.

We spent 3 days at this site and found the Inn probably the best choice in town and excellent value. It has a fine restaurant for all meals and specialize in lobster dinners. Food was as good as you will get and prices are reasonable - $21 for that lobster dinner. The room we had upstairs over the office and restaurant was spacious, period furniture, good bed and private bath, all spotless. Common area was nicely appointed but limited is size. This Inn was was an excellent value pick and we will use it again if we ever have another chance to visit the Canadian Maritimes.

If you want high-end accommodations for this area - the Keltic Lodge some 94 km up the trail will be happy for your credit card and can no doubt provide all the trimmings and breathtaking views.

Room Tip: There are rooms in the B and B over the restaurant that are very desirable - spacious and clean with...

The setting is nice, the house is beautiful, but like others I found the service terrible and food is just ok!
We were going to spend the night but quickly changed our minds after our lunch and were so happy we did.

We didn't pre book this inn as the one we were booked into had some problems. We were told about this one from tourist information. It was a bit old fashioned but comfortable too many chairs in the room, we ended up putting them on the landing. We had a balcony which was nice to sit and watch the world go by.We didn't have breakfast there we dicided to have that in the town. Not a bad inn

We drove into Baddeck at night and were happy to find this Inn was open and advertising off season rates. Very helpful staff, large, clean and pleasant room and bathroom. The location is at the start of the Cabot trail and central Cape Breton Island, making it a great location. The view from the room was lovely. Since it was off season the Inn's restaurant was not open, but Staff told us several places we could walk to for breakfast and other meals. We could also walk to the Alexandar Graham Bell museum from this Inn. Cape Breton, including Baddeck, has very little to offer the tourist off-season, beyond the beautiful natural sights and hiking. If you want to shop in boutiques, artisans and speciality restaurants wait to visit in early June - September.

This was not a pre-booked visit. In fact my husband and I had booked to stay at another Hotel, but there were problems with that, so we travelled on and ended up at Lynwood Inn quite late in the evening. Luckily, as it was off-season, there were plenty of rooms. We were placed in the Annexe and the room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was nice, but unfortunately the beds were very hard and we didn't sleep well. The room had a good heater, but it was very noisy. The Restaurant was not open, so we couldn't review the food.

This inn is in the heart of Baddeck. The rooms in the second building were clean with all the necessities that one expects in a motel/hotel. The main house was beautifully decorated. The restaurant was very, very nice with wonderful food and service...very sophistocated. It was within walking distance of many boutiques, and other restaurants and B&Bs. We would stay there again and we would definitely eat there again!!!!

If you want to stay somewhere that isn't a motel or B&B then this might be your best bet. The modern hotel style rooms are clean and well organized. The bathroom has a tub with water jets, toiletries are nearby, towels are well stocked.

The air conditioner seems to only have a high setting on the fan, it was a bit too loud to be of any use. The wireless internet didn't work in our room and the front desk said that some rooms are too far away to use the wireless and suggested I sit in the hall or use the wired connection.

The hotel has no elevator so prepare to possibly carry your bags to the third floor!
