Score from 148 reviews Excellent
The location and friendly staff.
The view of the lake from the room was obstructed by brush. I believe the "continental" breakfast is a thing of The past. Serve your guests an actual breakfast, even if you must charge for it, saving them a drive to a restaurant somewhere else.
Great location. nice views
Room had a musty smell at first.
Location close to town and beautiful lakefront views
The front unit was very close to the highway with frequent heavy traffic during the night
view of lake from breakfast room. Bald eagle visible catching fish in the lake. Good breakfast.
Some towels and sheets were worn thin. Rooms ready for refurbish
The lady at the front desk was very nice.
The shower went hot and cold the whole time you were showering.
Though not easy to get to it when traveling without a car, I did enjoy my stay at the Trailsman very much, from the moment I arrived till I left. The staff were super friendly, welcoming and helpful. The most amazing experience was waking up to a mind blowing beautiful sunrise over the lake...
Maybe having to walk along the highway if traveling without a car...
The excellent breakfast in a lovely dining room overlooking the water. The clean comfortable room. How nice it is to walk to the water and watch eagles.
The view of the water from the room was nice. Apart from the busy road at the front of the motel, out the back it was nice. Breakfast was basic but sufficient. The washing machines did their job. The lady on reception was friendly and helpful.
The mattresses were very soft do when my husband turned over, I nearly flew off the other side. There was a mouse scrabbling around above the ceiling one night. Worst of all, my husband and I came away with some bites on our necks and head. They were quite big and very itchy. I don't know what had bitten us in the night but it was a bit discerning...,
excellente vue sur le bras d or
From the pictures, I was not expecting much however was pleasantly surprised. The room was extra large and clean. Breakfast was more than we expected and the property sits on water.
A bit far from Baddeck but worth choosing.
Every noise and footfall is telegraphed down the entire hall.
Overall our stay at the Trailsman was an excellent experience - topping that experience was having our continental breakfast in the dining room attended by Tanya, an amazing woman with a sparkling personality and the ability to make everyone feel welcome and at home as she made sure that the food and beverage stations were constantly replenished and that vacated tables were promptly made ready for the next guest(s) . Thank you Trailsman and thank youTanya.
Our room was a little noisy - located next door to the laundry and under upstairs folks whose footfalls were quite heavy along with a refrigerator that seemed to be amplified when all else was quiet (small things over all).
great lake view, comfortable beds,great breakfast, very quiet and good quality heater and location which is easy to find,etc
i do not complain anything
The motel was clean, staff very friendly and view very pretty! Could have used a few more blankets.....it was quite cool.
The only complaint.....it was very noisy.....highway was so close.....not much can be done about that......
the view from our room was amazing if you like gazing across water!! staff were very friendly, the free breakfast was nice, rooms were well looked after.
The bathroom had a leak, nothing that hindered our stay but will certainly cause damage if not fixed. Staff said it was being worked on, which I'll assume was the case.
Location,breakfast, staff were very good, acessablityfrom the Highway. View from room was super.
The motel is dated, towels are old and ruff, no klenex, dryer iron in room. TV was only a 20inch old model and picture was poor quality. Overall I would give it a 7 out of 10. This was our third trip in last 4 years. No improvements over the years.Probably stay someplace else next time in this area..
Staff very friendly & helpful, view of lake amazing. Very clean motel. Breakfast was exceptional
could hear people next door
The breakfast & breakfast room were good continental.
The room was very musty smelling & outdated.
Not sound proof at all. The walls and carpet were paper thin
Convenient location near start of Cabot Trail. Good breakfast. Nice view of lake.
Beautiful breakfast room overlooking lake with good complimentary breakfast. Handy to start of Cabot Trail and town of Baddeck.
Hotel is located on the lake and ideal as base for Cabot trail. Rooms clean and basic.
No microwave. Only coffee making and fridge.
Our room was very close to the edge of the lake with a beautiful view. This place is ideal as it is quiet and peaceful yet only minutes from Baddeck. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Great place to stay.
