We didn't stay at the motel, but ate and attended the evening of Newfoundland music and story telling at the Anchor Pub.The food and drinks were great, but the music, stand up comedy and story telling was outstanding. The band started at 8, took a 15 minute break at 9:45 and continued till 11:30. They were high energy, very entertaining... More

Hi and thanks for the review of the Anchors Aweigh Band. They have been doing the show for many years and I still love to sit in as often as I can. The hardest part now is finding an empty seat. Tip...book ahead on the Bontours website. Cheers, Todd More

We are a couple in our 60's on holidays so we look for reasonable comfort and we were not disappointed with this hotel. It is located in a great position across the road from the harbour so the view is great. It is quite a large hotel and I guess it would be booked out at the height of the... More

Hi and thanks for your time in reviewing the property. October is certainly a slower time for the Ocean View Hotel but a nice quiet experience in Gros Morne as compared to the bustling summer for sure. Thanks again for the comments and tips for other travelers. Cheers, Todd More

I enjoyed the view from my room - Rocky Harbour is gorgeous. The room was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable and the amenities were what you'd expect of a hotel of this caliber. The staff were rather stiff and formal but they were polite and accommodating.

Hi and thanks for your time in making this review of the Ocean View Hotel. Glad you recommend the property and some nice tips for travelers here. All I can say about the "formal" comment is that the team are great but rarely err to the formal side! Hope you can come back to test them again. Cheers, Todd More

Had planned to stay several nights here, but had to cut short due to rain/wind and nighttime driving difficulties, and the staff were totally accommodating in terms of reservations, cancellations, etc. Could not have been more helpful!!

Stayed here in September 2013 at the same time a tour bus was booked into the hotel. The tour people were catered to, while we were treated like second class.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times and ate at the restaurant many times - it's one of our favorite places here at Gros Morne. Tonight in one of the mussels I found a worm in a shell of one of the mussels about 1 1/2 inches long. I told the waiter and she brought it back to the... More

Our room faced the beautiful harbour, looked good in spite of all the rain! Room was clean and comfortable, staff was excellent. Enjoyed Anchors Aweigh show. Only problem was all the early risers who don't have consideration for other guests, up making a racket before 6 am.

Hi and thanks for your most kind review. Just a note for readers that we are actually in Gros Morne (easy to mistake though as Twillingate is a real gem as well :) Hope to see you again in the future (without the noisy early morning guests). Cheers, Todd More
