Hotel is lower end but clean. A/c didn't work. Went to pub for anchors aweigh concert and found food to be very sub par, and the service was without a doubt the worst we have EVER experienced in a restaurant. The waitress Pearl was the rudest most incapable server we've ever had the misfortune of dealing with. At one point... 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

We stayed here while on tour. Great place. Clean room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great food and service at the restaurant and bar. Anchors Aweigh is a fun and entertaining group if you get a chance to see them. Also get a room on the 2nd floor facing the ocean if you can.

Stayed 2 nights recently, on a McCarthy' s Party tour of Newfoundland. Very clean, good size room, with view out over The bay. Took in the Anchor's Aweigh entertainment in their pub ($28 charge) which was an unexpected treat and well worth the money. Location in Gros Morne National Park is great for outdoor activties. Staff are friendly, as one... More

Me and my wife needed a getaway and this hotel was a great place to meet up with other couples for a week. Their rooms are fantastic and the activities around are perfect. Hikes to the light house, collecting sea glass at the beach, swiming, whale hunting, kayaking... just superb!

The bed, pillows and linens were all all very comfortable and soft. All aspects of the room were very clean and well kept. The front desk staff were all helpful. We only had breakfasts in the dining room and the servers were extremely friendly and eager to please. Anchors Aweigh had not started their performances yet which was a bit... 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
