Facility is a little tired. Rooms were refreshed with (faux) hardwood floors a few years ago and beds are comfortable. Rooms have mini-fridges. Convenient location close to the highway, University, food and drink options. Short drive to middle of town.

We stayed twice at the Claymore Inn on our way to and coming back from Newfoundland. The Claymore has an EV charging station on the back side of the building and this was the primary reason for our choosing this property. I had some concerns about the location of the hotel - but in the end it turned out to... More

We arrived in Antigonish without reservations and that was a big mistake. Most all the Hotels were booked but we were referred to this hotel. They were also full, they had only one room, at the time, available. We left our name with the front desk clerk who told us she would call us in a few hours if another... More

Stayed a Friday night, breaking up the journey from Cape Bretton to Halifax airport, we turned up on spec after we were unable to get in at the Victoria Inn. Room was very clean - albeit with dated decor, and expensive. Had an issue with the fridge in the room, but this was sorted very quickly. Its a bit of... More

We were very impressed with the Claymore Inn & suites. We've been using tripadvisor on our trip to find restaurants, sightseeing and hotels /motels. This site has been invaluable as we have been driving around the island and booking hotels as we go. The Claymore Inn was easy to find. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. We loved the Scottish...

Stayed for 1 night with my children during a very busy weekend in Antigonish. First impression of the hotel was that it was in dire need of renovations...The rooms, however, were clean, kitchen facilities were a nice surprise, beds were comfortable. My kids loved the pool, sauna and hot tub. Hotel location was close to a grocery store, restaurants and... More

The Hotel is certainly outdated but was clean. A/C unit roared when it changed cycle & woke me several times during the night. The fridge in room did not work??Our cold drinks got warm! Needs some TLC. Best thing about the place was the attached cafe Justamere!! Would give it one more try if in the area.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed on the golf package and everything was well done. The hotel was well located. It may be a little dated but rooms were clean and comfortable. Hot tub jets didn't work very well. We had breakfast at the restaurant and the food was very good.

We just concluded another wonderful week in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. As usual, we stayed at the Claymore Inn, our "home away from home." We have been staying there for the past 10+ years and try to visit the area yearly whenever possible. Our accommodations are alway well suited, clean, comfortable, and convenient. Claymore's location is centrally located and allows easy... More
