We arrived at the famed Cabot Resort with high expectations. These were quickly dashed. You pull into the parking lot and nobody to greet you. You look around to see where to go. You make you way to check in. Then informed at a resort you are paying in excess of $550 a night that their main dining room is closed for the season!! You can dine at the Bar or the Public House. Wow... thrilling. Not what the clientele they are trying to attract expect. There are also zero amenities for the price. No pool, no gym, no spa.
They do have lovely views from the rooms and the sunset is something else. Nice bath products. Room was clean but small.
If looking for a true luxury golf resort in Nova Scotia that non golfers can enjoy, head to Fox Harb’r. You will not be disappointed. It is my hope that Cabot will build on their resort to improve the experience of their non golfing guests.
Travelled recently to take advantage of a special rate as this is a very expensive resort to stay and golf at. The golf is first rate and this hotel caters to the golfers. The courses rate in the top 100 courses and the views are wonderful. We had a king bed with a balcony room in front of first tee. The room was ok but not worth the price in my opinion. The balcony door's screen was broken. I expected more amenities for non golfers..no spa, gym or pool. on the plus side, the staff were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. The Cabot bar was a good place to eat with lovely views. All in all, very nice place but not worth the $.
Our recent two night stay was simply fantastic. Room (King room) was excellent. Located with a balcony off the first tee it was a great way to start and end each day. Large bathroom and shower area with a very generous soaking tub. Bed was extremely comfortable. We ate at all meals on site and they were outstanding as well. Very high end and deserving of its stellar reputations!!
Cannot tell you how disappointed we were with this hotel. Check in was 3pm and we still didn’t have a room at 5:30. We were traveling with a group and had a planned offsite event that we needed to catch a bus at 530 for. We were not able to change before this event. Obviously we were disappointed. But it got worse. They promised to call us once they found us a room but they didn’t ever call us. By midnight we were starting to plan to sleep on our friends floor and called the reception to see if we could get some extra pillows. We were then told that they now had a room for us. Their excuse was that they were understaffed. This is supposed to be a world class destination but I have been treated better and with more professionalism in hotels in third world counties I have visited. We never had a manager address our concerns.
This has to be the most upscale place for accommodations on Cape Breton Island. Room was very simple with clean lines - very nice and had everything we required. Our room was located on the ground floor overlooking the first tee with a nice ocean view. I think we may have been the only couple there not golfing - it really is just a very nice golf resort.
