Excellent place to stay. Quiet and have ocean front/view rooms. Very clean and mostly renovated. Be sure to check on Gros Morine theatre showings and close to park/ western pond brook boat tour through the fijords in Gros Morin. Good restaurant as well.

We travelled there to golf and see a play. The cottages are well equipped for short stays. Be aware they aren't air conditioned but are equipped with fans in the bedrooms. The table is small but can be pulled out as needed. The wifi didn't work during our stay.

We spent a great night at the Shallow Bay. We requested an ocean view for an extra $10. It was well worth it. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. We attended a delightful evening of music called " Newfoundland Vinyl" in the hotel. The restaurant was very good. We had a turkey sandwich for dinner and then a delicious... More

We recently had the good fortune to stay at this property with a bus tour group. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel was quite full so my friend and I were given one of the cabins across the road. It was just wonderful. There were two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen containing all necessities, and a living room with a... More

Rented a 2 bedroom cottage and it was perfect! Everything was top notch with the exception of the WI-Fi. Called front desk regarding this and they told me that it was because too many people were using it and try later. This is a known issue, so why not fix it. But I will say that the property was were... More

Stayed 2 nights in this hotel and found it very comfortable. Rooms are large, clean with free wifi. Food in the lounge was excellent as was the service by Rob. This is a very busy hotel but the staff provided excellent service.

We had a cabin in this complex of cabins, motel, bed and breakfast, restaurant, bar and theatre that anchors the north end of Shallow Bay. It's 3 minutes from Shallow Bay, about 5 minutes from Western Brook Pond, and 15 minutes from Rocky Harbour (25 from Norris Point), but more than an hour from Woody Point and Trout River. It's...

We booked for one night on our way back to Deer Lake. I had booked a show for that evening also. The room was clean and had a wonderful view of the bay. The restaurant has excellent food and good service. The only negative was the smoky smell.

I booked this motel because of its location and reviews. Right on the ocean inside Gros Morne. There are hiking trails on the penninsula with an old lighthouse and views down the coast of Gros Morne. The staff were friendly and the location was clean. Beds were comfortable, room a reasonable size and the bathroom was updated...and clean. On site... More

We stayed in one of the cabins towards the end of the property. The cabin was clean and well appointed but the couch and lounging chair smelled of mold. Wi-Fi reception at that end was lousy. If not for the couches, would have rated 4
