We had a reservation for room and dinner. When we got there the place was locked, no cars outside at 5pm. There is no other accommodation for miles and since cellphones don't work, no way to call either this place or an alternative. We decided to wait awhile. After maybe a half hour a truck pulled in with a delivery, and shortly after the owner turned up having seen the truck drive past her house. Good job the truck came- could possibly be the only reason the owner turned up at all.
Accepting that we had a reservation, she did not then or subsequently explain or apologise for her absence- or the fact that as she then indicated , the restaurant was closed. Again pointing ourt our reservation , she indicated that "things had been kinda slow". Her best offer was to return with a couple of slices of bread and a muffin each for breakfast, in lieu of that we'd expected to eat in her restaurant. Then the first room she gave us smelled of cigarette smoke and we had to move. So a kind of miserable night completely alone in a hotel that frankly has seen better days ( or so I'd hope) .
I really can't consider this a proper business. The owner seems to have no clue about her responsibilities, and the place is very basic . I wouldn't even think about staying here again and if you have any expectation of actually getting what your reservation supposedly included, then my advice would be to find something elsewhere- which won't be in or near Musgrave Harbour. However Musgrave Harbour isn't one of Newfoundland's showpieces, so maybe you won't be missing too much.
And finally we'd had to make contact with them several times before we had any response.
