We travelled through Labrador with a trailer, so rented a spot at the RV park. This was a poorly graded parking lot calling itself an RV park. Two picnic tables for 15 sites, garbage blowing along the tall grasses, no trees or privacy, a dead mouse on our site, one washing machine and dryer for 15 sites and 5 cabins.... More

First the good news. Rooms have all been renovated and are clean and modern. Restaurant served fairly good meals. Now the bad! Despite new HDTVs in all rooms the cable system dates from the 1960's. Terrible quality and missing channels like CTV. Wifi is none existent in the guest rooms and apparently has been like that for months. Only in... More

The Northern Light Inn provided a more than adequate accommodation for us. After traveling several hundred kilometers of an isolated gravel road down through Labrador, it was nice to relax in a clean and well-equipped hotel. The room was freshly renovated, comfortable and provided all the amenities you could ask for. We also took advantage of the on-site restaurant, and... More

Stayed hear while waiting to bard the ferry from Labrador to Newfoundland. Clean and Practical are the words I choose to describe it, no frills. A couple of simple things that, in my opinion they fell down on. We asked for an extra pillow and were told that they had non and there restaurant and room service facilities closed at... More

We recently spent a night at the Northern Light Inn in L'Anse au Clair and were quite happy with our accommodations and especially the desk staff. The room was modern with flat screen tv and wifi. Unfortunately, we were not able to get any connection but that would've just been a bonus anyway. The bed was comfortable and the room... More

We stayed at the Northern Lights Inn and found our room to be freshly renovated and very comfortable. There is a nice desk and fridge in the room. There was a wedding downstairs, but we never heard a sound from the party. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the restaurant was a bonus. The food was good, prices... More

Ended up stranded for several days because of Ice Issues. The horrendous Ferry Service (too bad I can't write a review for that "tragedy waiting to happen") saw me having to check out for several hours each day and then checking back in. The Hotel Staff was fantastic, no issues, the room was waiting every time. Clean, warm, comfortable, Fairly... More

Stayed here before and glad we did again. Comfortable and very clean. Although the desk clerk is not on for late arrivals, someone is there to check you in. Not sure how long they work because an after midnight arrival may present a problem for check in. We arrived at 11PM. We also stayed here on the way back home.... More

What else can you say really. There isn't much in the area when it comes to hotels and to say your going to keep driving ......where? The hotel is going through some renovations but seem to have stopped. So you can get a nicer room but I think you have to pay more. I seems that no matter what time... More

Although we stayed only one night there and the room & bedding is adequately clean and roomy. But when I was checking in, I asked specifically for a quiet room. They put me on the ground floor room closest to the lobby. Then they told me it was the only one available despite we were booked weeks in advance. This... More
