Reviewed 30 June 2014

Really nice hotel, good prices and wonderful views. Best place to start your trip around the Cabot Trail. Food at their restaurant has a good continental breakfast included in the price...would love to visit again.

Room Tip: First building on the right of the lobby second floor

This was a very nice property, with spectacular views. Breakfast buffet is not worth the price ($13pp) as it is mediocre at best. Pool is outdoors, but is heated. Good sized on-site laundromat is a nice time saver if you need it (we did). Staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Rooms are large and well kept. The property outside is as good as it gets-large and beautiful, lots of room for playing, walking, whatever you like. Close to downtown Baddeck and Cabot trail.

Room Tip: There are many types of rooms to choose from-with views, no views, chalets, etc.

We booked a day in here for our motorcyle trip to Cabot Trail.
They charged us $10.00 more for booking with Expedia and I argued with them but lost.
It is an older building but wonderfully decorated and mentained,The second floor has a big window overlooking the large body of water.Imeditelly outside the bedroom is a porch with chairs where one could have a coffee or use binoculars to watch the boats going by. The room is very large and the bed is soft. The bathroom is also clean and pleasant looking.
Up on seing this room we immediatelly reserved another day.
The restaurant is nice but we only had breakfast in there(which is not included)
In the way here my cell got very wet from the rain and Amanda at the front desk helped us print the insurance forms an fax them.

I had read mixed reviews on the Silver Dart Lodge on trip advisor and I did not really know what to expect beside a nice view on the Bras d’Or (I had driven through Baddeck a few days before our stay and seen the location of the lodge). However, we had a pleasant stay. Our room in the main lodge was a little bit dated but large, spotless and comfy with indeed a nice view on the Bras d’Or. Wifi is offered for free but was somewhat erratic with very weak signal at time followed by period of good connection. I do not think that it was due to an overload of the system as we were very early in the season with still a low level of occupancy. We ate at the Lodge restaurant on the first night as we did not feel going to town after a long day and we had a very nice diner so we came back the second nicht this time by choice and no longer by default. The bathroom in our room had obviously be renovated recently and was really nice but I am not sure that it is true for each unit as some parts of the lodge could obviously benefit from some maintenance (for example the paint was badly chipping away on the viewing deck in front of our room). I suspect that is what explain the mixed review but in our case, we had a very pleasant stay at the lodge

The hotel has been in Baddeck for a long time. The property has been updated but still shows its age. Dinner in the restaurant was terrible. My steak arrived late and tasted rancid. Ruined my whole stay.

This is my 2nd stay at the Silver Dart Lodge. The staff at the Lodge are very friendly and helpful. The rooms while basic (no fridge or microwave) were clean and comfortable. The views from the Hotel are excellent and it is within a reasonable distance to the center of town. The food at the hotel is very good but also expensive. The free wifi worked well throughout my stay. Would stay here again.
