Great motel in the middle of Gros Morne National Park. The room was clean, but could be noisy with a different crowd. Walls are a bit thin between rooms. But great service at the motel and great food in the dining room. The motel appears to cater to bus tours which I was a part of, Not sure if individual... More

We stayed one night at the cabins here. A little more expensive and a lot busier than other places we've been to. The cabins are across the road from the hotel that contains a small pub, a very nice dining room and rooms (nice ones facing ocean). There is also a small but busy theatre with local talent on premises... More

We booked this hotel as we were travelling with our dog and it was advertised as pet friendly accommodations. We were charged $15 extra for the dog, which we accepted, but we were then given a room in the 2 storey annex across the street. The room was at ground level and we could park right outside the door. However... More

Thank you for your comments. As a result, we have looked into upgrading our pet friendly rooms. As regards the extra charge, you will find that most properties do have an additional charge for pets as there is extra cleaning needed after a pet has stayed. Not every guest keeps their pet in a crate or carrier and hairs, as... More

Booked a cabin for 2 nights using bookings.com, they oversold our room for the 1st night and didn't inform us until close to our departure. When they did inform us they offered an alternative, with not a great discount and weren't willing to negotiate very much. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to change travel plans so it worked out... More

My friends and I rented a two bedroom cabin...it was very nice, comfortable and everything in it was spotless and new. The kitchen was well equipped. The location was great, with a beach just outside the cottage. The only issue for us was that there were only two beds. We were 3 friends, and only two beds, and the motel... More

We do appreciate your comments. Sorry that we did not have a cot available when you stayed here. Some of our cottages are equipped with cots. I'm assuming that you did not ask for one when you called. We find that it is always best to ask for a third bed when one is required. Thanks again! More

Stayed here with my spouse for two nights while with a tour group for the Gros Morne National Park. Given the remote location, this motel is a pleasant surprise of well furnished, generous rooms and modern conveniences. Even better, a staff and management who strive to ensure your stay is friendly and comfortable. Our room included plenty of electric outlets... More

I stayed in a two room cabin, which was set up great. The room had nice fans for summer weather. The grounds were completely full when we were there and it was so beautifully quiet at night. I would stay here again. It was about a forty minute drive to the parking lot of the western brook pond. It was... More
