Westborough, Massachusetts
Reviewed 24 March 2017

We stayed 3 mights here. The grounds were ok but our room was in the basement and very depressing because there was limited light. The outdoor playground was not very nice. I would not stay here again. Note- we stayed here in august 2015 so maybe improvements have been made since.

During an extended trip that combined business and vacation, we splurged for a few days on one of the apartment suites in order to give ourselves more room, and access to a kitchen and laundry. We arrived on a windy, rainy day and contemplated lighting the fireplace, as we unloaded. The suite came with one somewhat dated bathroom (I think...

We stayed here two nights. One night was spent in the Hotel part and the room was great. Big room with a fantastic view of the lake. Very clean. The second night was spent in a cabin up the hill a bit. We had to move since our room was booked. This was fine. Cabins are very cute with wood...

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. It is clean and comfortable, and great for moderate walkers who like to walk into town. The Silver Dart offers 2 trails from the hotel grounds. One is just a short jaunt to the beach. The motel-style lodging to the left of the lobby as you drive in is nice inside. I...

The housekeeping was excellent, very thorough and pleasant. For the price, on site laundry could have been offered. Restaurant was nice enough, but the prices were high end for middle of the line meal.

My wife and I stayed at the Silver Dart Lodge in Baddeck earlier this month whilst on a coach tour of New England and the Canadian Maritimes.

We've stayed at the Silver Dart several times, both for Celtic Colours and otherwise, as its location makes it well-situated to reach any location on Cape Breton within a couple of hours' drive. The room we had was clean and comfortable and opened onto a lovely lawn via a semi-private porch. We don't require a lot from our Cape Breton...

We stayed on Thanksgiving weekend as part of a car tour group. It was very clean and the service good. The suites are in an old house, and although they have all the comforts of home, they smell quite musty. We moved to the chalets the next night and these are much better. The only negative is the pricing in...
