Tradition of Excellence
“Clad Mile Failte” – One hundred thousand welcomes to our island. The owners, management and staff at the Clansman Motel and Dining Room extend a very warm and sincere welcome to you, our motorcycling guests.
The Clansman Motel Limited was incorporated back in December of 1964, by brothers, Emerson Allen, Corsen Allen, and their sister, Eleanor (Charles Hadley). Although these original siblings were not active motor cycle enthusiasts, all of there combined twelve children, and several of there grandchildren have become, and continue to be, very active in the driving and promoting a motorcycle lifestyle. Several members of our family have been actively involved in the Canadian Safety Council Motorcycle Training Program, as Instructors, Senior Instructors and Chief Instructors. We have toured Canada, the United States and Europe on touring bikes; attended numerous rally’s in the Atlantic provinces and Eastern USA; have been very competitive in track and off-road racing; completed in the provincial enduro circuit; and have spent countless hours simply cruising our beautiful Cape Breton Island on everything from 125cc to an 1800cc. Our biking family, as well, have participated in local charitable runs of all kinds, and served on the executive of local touring clubs.
As you can see, you are the guests of a family who share your love and passion for motorcycling, and we wish to make your stay with us as pleasurable as possible.
