The menu for Thanksgiving Dinner featured 2 Entrees. Glenora Distillery did not provide their full menu . I choose salad to start followed by the traditional turkey dinner with mashed potatoes, gravey, & vegetables . The highlight was ginger cake desert! Their deserts are exceptional they use fresh ginger. Many of their desserts include a delicious Glenora whiskey sauce. There...

Very nice little spot. A bit pricey for the room & food. Overall still a nice place to stay and very clean. People were friendly. Had the pleasure to listen to local live Fiddle and piano music. Nice addition to the evening!

The four of us arrived 40 minutes before lunch service was to end, and were looked at askance by a manager. We insisted that we would order whatever was quickest to cook on the menu, but wondered why, with 40 minutes left, we would be treated as if we were somehow inconveniencing the kitchen. My parents ordered fish and chips,...

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...

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.
