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

This motel, located on the Northern Peninsula in Gros Morne park is convenient for visitors to the park. Our room had an unobstructed view of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. There is a beach to stroll along and longer trails within walking distance which take in interesting local sites such as an abandoned lighthouse. A theatre is beside the motel... More

This is a combination of a motel and several cabins. We stayed two nights in one of the two bedroom cabins. There was a full size fridge and electric stove. It was clean and comfortable. The surrounding grounds were all well maintained. The cabins are right across the street from Warehouse Theatre, where we enjoyed a good play and dinner.... More

We visited family in Newfoundland and planned one night in Gros Morne for ourselves and the highlight of our visit was going to be the Western Brook Pond tour just 15 minutes from the hotel. We found out our 3.5lb dog wasn't welcome on the tour and it was going to be 25 degrees so we couldn't leave her in... More

We stayed here two nights, our first night in Newfoundland, and then returning from a trip up the Viking Trail two days later. A delight both times. Very well run, with a professional staff. We had both a dinner and a breakfast here. Both were good meals. Not the best we had in Newfoundland (that would be The Norseman), but... More

This was a nice place to stay, the rooms were clean and quiet. The dining room was excellent and had good service, both at dinner and breakfast. We visited a Theatre Newfoundland/Labrador production of "Mary's Wedding" which was very good. The theatre is located on the property.

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.
