We stayed in the Bay View B&B...it was clean, comfortable, roomy and more than met our expectations. We ate in the Shallow Bay dining room...breakfast was excellent. Wonderful service. We stayed two nights on our way to Labrador and one night on our way back. The staff couldn't do enough for you. We would return in an instant.

We had a room in the annex with a covered porch and enjoyed sitting out and watching the surf and rain.

My wife and I stayed only one night here. I gave this place 4 stars rating for it's location, although the room is very basic. The location may be one of best if you only stay 2 or 3 days in Gros Morne National Park. It is located on north part of the park and most travelers like us to... More

Very busy when we arrived at 7:15 pm. Restaurant full. Theatre festival going on in the Warehouse Theatre which is on the property! There was also a fiddling event going on next to the pub. That event was fully booked and being enjoyed by all. The pub had 5 or 6 slot machines and there were several games on a... More

Shallow Bay was a nice quiet motel with spacious clean rooms and a lovely view of the beach! Our room was exceptionally large as we shared what looked to be an entertainment room! We had an electric fireplace and sitting room chairs, a small fridge and decent sized bathroom. There was a door that led to an area where you... More

After 20 calls, we finally found a vacancy at Shallow Bay. Upon arrival it didn't look like much and there was a bar full of people. But going inside we were pleasantly surprised. The front desk was very helpful and fast. The room was clean and very spacious. We stayed one night, but both my dad and I were quite... More

Two couples travelling together. We find it worth it to have a kitchen and private quarters. The cabin was tiny but made good use of the space. It was very clean and had everything we needed to prepare supper and breakfast. There were fans in both bedrooms, which was appreciated. Both beds were double; it would have been nice to... More

I recently stayed here for 3 nights on a family trip. There was a big group of us and Shallow Bay staff were very accommodating. The location is perfect - our room had a view of the bay and a door that opened onto a grassy area with direct access to the beach. Just lovely. A walk along the beach... More

Decided to take our grandkids to Newfld for some Atlantic hospitality. WE stayed in the Bayview B&B and had a really nice room with a view of the bay. Kids enjoyed the local beach dog (Babe) and the kitchen facility allowed for some self-prepared snacks and a fridge for the golden nectar. Breakfast was included in the room rate however... More
