Reviewed 28 September 2016

This Inn is very quaint set out on the grounds of a distillery. The service & accommodations are great, as is the interesting tour of the only distillery in Canada producing single malt whiskey. The grounds are stunning, quiet & a great place to relax for a few days.

We took the whiskey tour at Glenora Distillery. The tour is pretty straight forward and as it was summer there was no whiskey being made. You do get to learn about the process and see the machinery which is interesting. At the end you get to try their whiskey. They have a nice gift shop where you buy your tour...

We were in the middle of the wilderness when we happened upon this restaurant/pub for lunch. The food was good but definitely pricey. A gentleman, playing a mandolin in the pub, was very entertaining.

Stopped in our way to Cheticamp. Tours are on the hour so we had a bit of wait. We went into the bar area and had a few drinks. The gift shop is cute to look around as well. The tour is not expensive. However, like most tours it depends greatly on your guide. Ours was to the point but...

Stayed there while playing some of the local golf courses. We had dinner and listened to music our first night and enjoyed it a great deal. We had fresh halibut and salmon which was delicious. We stayed in a chalet which had a pleasant view. The mattress was a bit lumpy but we enjoyed the privacy and location. The service...

This is a fun budget tour, $7 each. we went on a Weekend morning, and had Emily as a guide,I don't think this is her regular job, but she was amazing and funny. She explained the process very clearly, and at the end we enjoyed a little bit of the product. There is a very nice gift shop also, if...

Thank you for your visit. Emily, although a charming tour guide, is one of our servers in the Dinning room but was very willing to educate herself on our production to lend a hand filling in on the tour schedule. We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your time with us. Thank you for your review. Bertha.

My wife and I spent 2 nights and were very disappointed. The inn is very impersonal and the house keeping service was dreadful. Our beds were made and the towels put back in the bathroom but bins were left unemptied and coffee cups unwashed. The food in the restaurant was good but over priced. The lock on the door of...

We started in the pub with a snack and listened to some fiddle/piano music that was quite good. As I looked around the dining room, I saw most people had their toes tapping in time with the music. We tried a flight of their whiskys. It was a good way to sample what they had. I would recommend they eliminate...

Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to tell others about your time here. Our flight is designed to show the evolution of our product through the aging process so although it isn't ever the favourite it is important to have the un-aged (raw) alcohol in the flight to get a sense of where it all begins. We...

We wanted to visit this distillery but settled for a late lunch on our way from Moncton to Baddeck. The food was just ok, but the flight of whiskey samples was terrific. We were able to sample 4 of their distilled whiskies (the fifth sample was raw spirits which we didn't touch) for a reasonable price. There was live music...

We had lunch today, first visit but not the last. It was absolutely delicious and very nicely served by a lovely waitress. Our first visit but not our last. One of us had the strip loin sandwich, the other had the shaved beef brisket, both delicious! Highly recommended!
