We booked early so we were able to get a harbour view but unable to get a Queen Sized bed, but the two doubles were fine. The view from our room, which had a small balcony with a table and chairs, was beautiful and the sunsets were breath-taking! Rocky Harbour is a quaint little town and central to everything we...

This hotel is centrally located for the park, clean and beds comfortable with an A/C "split" in the room so quiet. However, our room was small with 2 double beds and a very small bathroom - with 3 adults and our stuff, it was crowded. As someone said earlier, ask for a second floor room or if that's not possible... More

I loved the hotel, the room, the view (unfortunately I booked too late to get a harbour view room) anf the restaurant. This was one of my better decisions on selecting a hotel. It is right in the centre of Gros Morne park, and accessible to some of the most spectacular scenery in Canada. I was also lucky to be... More

I love how the rooms have sliding doors instead of a window. The view is spectacular although we were in the back but next time we will book an ocean view. The beaches are out of this world especially Western Brook Beach...WOW! Room is very clean and comfy. No complaints at all!

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in a 2nd floor ocean view room. The balcony had 3 chairs and a little table. Since this was one of the warmest summers jn NL, the A/C was really appreciated.as well,as the black out curtains. The trade off for those beautiful,sunsets is the sun shining in the windows and warming the... More

The hotel is located right by the ocean but not on the beach. We had an ocean view room but we were very disappointed with the view from our room on the ground floor. The parking lot is right in front of the window blocking whatever scenic view beyond. In addition, there is no privacy if the blinds are drawn... More

Hi folks...thanks for the awesome review! We are just beginning some enhancements for 2015 which will include clearing the parking that obstructs the ground floor room views. Glad you enjoyed the food and the sunset views! Cheers! More

This motel was one of the many beautiful hotels and motels in Newfoundland that we stayed in. The rooms were very clean and there were two restaurants in the motel. All of the employees were so friendly and helpful with information of the things to see and do and always ready to answer any questions we asked. One of the... More

We stayed here twice due to its proximity to Gros Morne. You still have to travel a ways to get to a lot of the Park but it is a very large park Staff are friendly and rooms are fairly spacious, nice, and clean. Its a basic room to sleep in. The hotel is also the location of Anchors Aweigh... More

On the plus side, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The staff members were friendly and the restaurant very good for both breakfast and dinner. However, we had a first floor garden view room and the guests above us were heavy walkers. It was impossible to sleep until they went to bed around midnight. The rooms were not... More

Hi folks and thanks for the review. Sorry you had a bit of noise from the second floor. We have been increasing the soundproofing through the building on each upgrade and plan to have another buffer between the 1st and 2nd levels for 2015.
