Used the hotel room with a friend for a few meetings in July of 2014. the staff was friendly and room average, nothing special. Good rate, good internet signal,flexible checkout and sometimes that's all that matters.

The room & bathroom were very clean, well appointed & stocked with bath amenities. Bed & pillows comfy, had TV, wi-if, hairdryer. On the TCH 6 min from... More

Great location for night stop and early start in the morning. Check in staff was beyond welcoming. Such a humorous and kind lady. Room was clean, bed was comfortable for a good night's rest, and shower pressure was great with lots of hot water. Towels were fresh and abundant...place is truly dated, but still kept clean and comfortable.I'd recommend for... More

WiFi good, balconies if wanted, washrooms newly renivated. Located on side of theTCH so easy to find. Resturants within walking distance if you don't want to eat at the motel. Airplane museum across the road.

Lovely helpful staff. Nice room. Warm. Bathroom clean with loads of towels. Scrambled eggs need work at breakfast. Next time my flight is diverted to Gander in an emergency I'll look forward to going to the Albatross again. Recommended.

This place must've been awesome circa 1973. Some 40 years later it's in desperate need of an update. The staff are nice, but the decor, food and amenities are sorely lacking. A medium length brown hair was on my sheets when I climbed in.Not mine, I'm blonde.

Had a restful stay at this hotel. The place was clean, the bed was comfortable. Staff was very pleasant. Food in the restaurant was good. Would be nice if they had had laundry facilities - there are no laundromats in Gander. Very well located off of the TransCanada and across the street from the Aviation Museum. Also close to convenience... More
