The Entente Cordiale B&B was a great place to stay! It's right on the shore, the breakfast (and dinner if you order ahead) was really good, the rooms were nice / quaint, and it is a great launching place for the western brook pond tour and to head north towards the viking stuff in St. Anthony if you are so inclined. Peaceful and relaxed; probably the best setting of any of the B&B's that we stayed in the week we were in Newfoundland. Listen to the waves roll in off the ocean from your bedroom. Ahhhhhhhhh.......
Pros: Good breakfast, good dinner, good accomodation, good proximity to the ocean, reasonably close for accomodation to the western brook pond hike & tour, peacful and relaxed, good common room & space for people to mingle in. Oh, the staff are really nice and accomodating!
Cons: A bit farther north of Gros Morne`s ``southern`` points of interest that I thought - a full 1.5 hr drive to the Tablelands we found out. Stay here a couple of nights, and then head south in the park to Woody Point or Birchy Head and stay there while you tour the tablelands and green gardens.
