Clean and comfortable. The cabins are in the perfect location for exploring the area. We were really glad we pick this spot. Great food at the motel with great hospitality. Check out the theatre if you have the opportunity.

Stayed on way and back from North. Both times in cabins with outstanding views. Rooms were very clean, had everything we needed, good wifi. Can't beat the sunset views and fireworks on Canada Day! Food was good, staff was friendly and helpful.

Nice hotel with all the fixings very close to Gros Morne National Park. The area is really pretty. It's quiet, clean, well outfitted, nice heated pool and spa. Large flat screen TV's and plenty of creature comforts. This property is family owned AND run. You'll find the owner putting in long hours making sure everything is done right.

we stayed here for 2 days/nights with a group tour. The place is a large rambling facility that has been expanded many times. We stayed in a 2nd floor room down a long corridor. The room was large and very clean. The food and service were all very good. The management is very helpful and was willing to alter the... More

This property offered both motel rooms and cabins, and we were glad to chose the cabin option. Our cabin was clean, large and well-equipped. Being located in town meant that we were able to purchase some groceries down the street and make ourselves a nice home-cooked meal, (which is so welcome when you are on the road). Although we didn't... More

I haven't been to 1983 in years, so that was fun. But... I have to say, the people were lovely, but a bit overwhelmed. There was a huge bus tour there and it was a bit chaotic. We were in the motel section. Our room was really dated, but clean. The problem really is with noise. It sounded like the... More

Our group of three stayed for one night at the Cabins at Shallow Bay Motel. It was selected based on reviews from TA and the Cabin did not disappoint. We had no trouble finding the Motel in Cow Head and was pleasantly surprised to find that our cabin was directly across the street from the Gros Morne Festival Theatre. We... More

One night stay but the owner greeted me personally and offered whatever I might need. The room was clean and had ironing board, flatscreen, coffee pot, 2 luggage racks. Not large but quite adequate. My room was on the ocean and the high tide lapping on the shore was very calming. It has a restaurant where I had pan fried... More

Our stay at the motel was, as always is, a great stay. I love the upgrades they have done and the colors they have used. Their rooms are so clean and modern. I cannot say enough about the comfort and cleanliness. The staff are friendly, makes one feel like they are returning home. The restaurant has wonderful food and the... More
