This is a good stopping off place on the way north to Red Bay and Battle Harbour. The rooms are typical budget type hotel/motel type room clean, quiet, decent bed, TV and bath. Free internet was provided but the quality was very poor. The staff were pleasant, courteous but not particularly helpful. There is no where to eat in this... More

This is a great choice if you are visiting Labrador. It is just a few minutes from the ferry dock, and not far from the Red Bay Basque whaling station, and the L'Anse Amour lighthouse. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and there is a restaurant and bar. The staff are courteous and friendly. There is a small gift shop... More

The Northern Lights Inn is located in L' anse Au Clair Labrador about 10 minutes from the ferry stop, it's also almost the only place to stay for day trip visitors. I would first like to say the area is breathtaking, definitely worth the day trip, keep that in mind when you arrive at the Inn. Like I said in... More

The escorted bus tour had this on our itinerary. We stayed for one night and our dinner/supper was included. The room, amenities in the room, the dinner, the front desk personnel baggage handler was excellent. I would highly recommend Northern Light Inn as a place to visit, rest and experience the vast beauty of nature all around.

We had a very nice experience. Clean, comfortable room in a quiet setting. Nice gift shop and laundry facilities. The restaurant was convenient especially because there are few others in town. It was definitely a convenience with a complete menu.

When my wife and I arrived we weren't sure what to expect because the lobby and the hallways to the rooms are very dated. When we arrived at our room we were pleasantly surprised. The room was large and the furnishings were high quality and comfortable beds. Large flat screen TV and very good wireless internet. The restaurant served buffet... More

stayed here because of the proximity to the ferry. The rooms are clean and basic. One annoying aspect was the fluorescent light near the sink -- constantly flickering. The best part of the stay was cod cakes for breakfast. There is a great walking trail very nearby -- really beautiful walk by the beach and cliffs.

We stayed one night in their campground. It's a work in progress, but the bathroom/showers arewonderfu50 amp is available. The restaurant is good, with plenty of tasty food choices. Quite a contrast to the starkness of the area. The complex is a good place to begin your visit to Labrador .

Very good food served in their dining room, plus had a in house bar/pub area. The staff were very friendly & accommodating. The hotel has been doing some renovations to upgrade some of their premises, rooms were very clean & comfortable. There is very little else in the community but this location is a good stop over for your tour... More

After a nice ferry ride across the Strait of Belle Isle, and a nice drive north in Labrador to visit the Red Bay Historic site, we returned to L'Anse Au Clair, Labrador for our overnight at Northern Light Inn. A modern hotel with a nice dining room and a view of the bay. We had an iceberg float by during... More
