This hotel welcomed our tour with cookies and a soft drink, which was nice. They even had our name on the sign outside the hotel's entrance, also a nice touch. The staff seemed pleasant enough, but the rooms need to be updated. Because the rooms looked old, they also had the appearance of being dirty. The casing around the window... More

We stayed at this hotel in our way across the island for one night. The hotel advertises an indoor heated pool but it is by no means heated, it advertises free wifi but we were unable to connect even after calling the front desk and 1800 number that was provided. The rooms are very dated and there was a huge... More

When I was a child, I remember staying at the Hotel Gander several times and always marvelled at how fancy it was. Oh how the mighty have fallen... We stayed in the hotel during the weekend of a swim meet which was being held in Gander so availability was very limited. It took SIX phone calls to determine if a... More

The check in was quick and friendly, and once I received my room KEY ( an actual metal key! ) I knew that things were going to be interesting. The hotel is showing it's age for sure. The last time I visited this hotel was in the late 1980's and though the lobby decor may have changed I do not... More

We had late lunch here on the way to Twillingate. Our server was great, fun, helpful, loads of personality. We both ordered the chicken warp and small Greek salad which came with the meal. Both were Very good. Lots of chicken in the wrap and the sauce was oh so yummy. We didn't have to wait long before the food... More

Badly in need of a face lift. Circa 1980s cracked sink. Carpet has not been cleaned since then. On the upside, staff is friendly. But...This place is seriously overpriced for what you get. Smoky lobby. Sadly not much choice in Gander. Stay elsewhere if you can. Harley drag races in the parking lot if you don't need to sleep.

Eight of us stayed here on our way from one side of Newfoundland to the other. We were tired by the time we arrived, having driven from Rocky Harbour in Gross Morne park. We were so happy to find that they had a pool that was open. The kids had a wonderful time and we were able to swim both... More

This hotel is older and needs a update. I stayed in a ground level where there was a parking spot in front of a second door to my room. I would not recommend this hotel at all. When I went to bed around 11:30pm, I flipped open my sheets and I found a bug in my bed, don’t worry it’s... More

This hotel has seen better days. Everything is outdated and truly warn. I was surprised how unfriendly the front desk person was considering she should delighted that myself and a colleague spent a nickle here. Customer service should be the paramount for a hotel in this condition.

Old, outdated, over priced and dirty pretty much sums it up. I stay here for work a few times a year and I must say its sad they can charge $120 a night for some of these rooms. The beds in some of the rooms look at least 15 years old and are VERY uncomfortable. Overall, not a very nice... More
