Stayed in one of the chalets above the main hotel. Lovely views and very peaceful, looked a bit dated especially the heaters and air con unit. Kitchenette, meant we could have breakfast in which made a nice change. About 10-15 min walk into town if you want to eat somewhere

Thank you for your great review and your comments of your visit with us. It is wonderful to get guest feedback so we know where we can improve for all future guests. We usually do have a full breakfast menu as well as the buffet, however, we did offer just a large buffet breakfast during our Celtic Colours International Festival! I do hope it was not too much of an inconvenience. Please visit with us again in the future. Thank you.

Good morning and thank you for your inquiry. The Sydney airport is approximately 1 hour from Baddeck, but there are many car rental agencies that would be able to assist you for transportation. If we can be of any additional assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you.
