Sadly we only stayed at the Telegraph House and Motel for one night as we ended our Cabot Trail tour. I wish we could have stayed longer. The hotel is so unique, quirky and perfectly located in the center of town, easy access to everything including a short walk to the Alexander Graham Bell historical site. Upon arrival we were given a room in the main house and, while beautiful and nicely decorated, we found it very small for a family of three adults. It would have been perfectly cozy for two. As well, the room lacked some of the amenities we enjoyed in other hotels such a small fridge and a coffee maker. The person at the desk instantly recommended the motel side of the hotel and we loved it as it was more suited to our needs. Three beds, a fridge and a coffee maker were included and the room was very spacious. The only negative is that there is no air conditioning but there is one ceiling fan and one extra desk fan. We were comfortable because the evening was cool but I would hesitate to sleep there on a hot night. Parking was also a problem, not a lot of space. We did not have a chance to dine at the house but had a fabulous dinner at the Lobster Supper Place not far from the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for a family provided the stay is at the motel side of the house which is more spacious and has more amenities. Be sure to ask about air conditioning during hotter months.

Room Tip: Motel side of the house is better for families. Ask about air conditioning.

My wife and I had such a wonderful meal here tonight. My wife had crab cakes which were phenomenal, and our mains, chicken and tenderloin risotto, were just fantastic! The service was exceptional, and the atmosphere charming.

Tradition and history are the operative words here . Comfortable and cozy and old fashioned to my liking . The motel units up behind the house are comfortable . No air conditioning but fresh air and coolness at night made it very comfortable . Large screens on windows with no fear of leaving them open all night . Parking a bit of a problem if you are late arriving . We were early . Quaint ... No breakfast with room but was prepared ...Very central in Baddeck .small frig and coffee maker . Restaurant at main house and several nearby . This is an extremely popular establishment ...not cheap ...if you want ultra modern this isn't the place to come ..very relaxing . ..a good retreat in a very beautiful area of Cape Breton ... Never get tired of visiting Baddeck . ........

We had a beautiful room at the Telegraph house with a view off our balcony to match. We didn't have the pleasure of dining at the house as we arrived late in the evening but had a short walk to the Lobster Supper restaurant which topped off our one night stay in Baddeck. Wish we would have stayed one more night. Staff at the house were friendly and had great tips getting around the Cabot Trail. Please be sure to stay here and you won't be disappointed.

We stayed here for two nights on a recent trip to Baddeck. The hotel is in a great location (right on the main street) with an awesome bakery right across the street for breakfast and coffee.

The hotel itself is older and I felt like I was staying in my grandmothers house because of the decor, however it was clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful and was overall a very good experience to stay here. Would not hesitate to book again on a future trip.
