I.m sorry to say this was not a very good choice! For the momey charged this was a very dated and poorly maintained room. I stayed at the B building to have a smoking room room and it was very hot and musty smelling. My biggest concern however was the electrical as when I tried to turn the bedroom light... More

I had some visitors from Europe visiting for my wedding and we planned to stay at the Dreamcatcher and go bar hopping for my bachelorette. I had asked for a non-smoking, clean room and was told the day of my booking that they had made a mistake and my room was taken by someone else so my guests would have... More

I Stayed at the Dream Catcher only because it was booked by someone else. I have been reading some of the reviews from way back and the response from Stella "" it is a work in progress"" Well most of the complaints still exist except the windows not opening and the floors have been re-done and a paint job.

Dear PoorExperience2014, I am very disheartened by your review. To feel you have to join Trip Advisor and share this poor experience publically surely is an indicator of how bad it really was. I do thank you for acknowledging the upgrades we have made. I spoke with the Front Desk Clerk regarding her response to your complaint and she did... More

The room was quite nice. Unfortunately for me, the one service that is most important for me was terrible - if you are looking for ANY internet then don't go here. I had to go to the local restarants just to check my email. Very noisy too with some of the locals staying in the main lodge. Bring earplugs. LIke... More

Hi Mark. I appreciate your frustration with the Internet connection at the Dreamcatcher. It seems to go on and offline at will. I have contacted Eastlink and requested a full assessment of our system and we are committed to making whatever upgrades are recommended by the Service Technician. Hopefully, this problem is being corrected as I write this response. I... More

My family booked an efficiency unit for the weekend while visiting stephenville, and was so disgusted that we couldn't stay both nights; one night was enough! We even considered sleeping in the car, but I doubt our infant and toddler would enjoy that. I have spent a lot of nights in hotel rooms over the years, and I must say,... More

Dear Caper2013, I find it difficult to even repond to this review. To say it is discouraging would be putting it lightly. Our rooms are all in some state of progress forward due to the age of the buildings and the heavy usage. We do try our best to provide value for your money and obviously we were unsuccessful in...

We spent 1 night at the lodge with 2 other couples. The guide book listed it with a full breakfast included. The lobby was nice, but from there it went downhill. Hallway dirty and trashy, lamps, tv, etc. were all plugged into one outlet with entension cords. We had 2 full beds. One was sloped on more than a 45*... More

Dear BC, I am very pleased that the Front Desk Clerk offered you your money back, that is good customer service. I agree the 'wiring' situation is a bit much. Unfortunately, the building is very old and electrical outlets are limited. I will have a look though and see what can be done to improve that. I checked the Travel... More

Dear rozrose007, Thank you for your review. As noted above, the Dreamcatcher Lodge continues to be a work in progress. You are absolutely right about the poor lighting and this is being addressed as I write this response. The stain on the bedding was rust, not blood, from one of the washers. All the stained bedding has been replaced. The... More
