We stayed in the b&b part which was four separate rooms with a common kitchen-sitting area. All rooms have a view of the water and a deck outside the door. We chose to get a pizza from the restaurant and sit outside on the deck since it was a beautiful evening. The room was clean but had a musty smell... More

Our room in the J & J (B & B) was a great value. It was spacious, offered a partial view of the bay, and was quite clean. We especially liked having a small table and chairs where we could drink tea or read. Only wish there had been twin beds or a single queen-sized one.

We were originally booked at the Ocean View Resort in Rocky Harbour, but when we got there we found out that there was no running water in the entire town! So we moved further up the road to Cow Head, and stayed here. What a delightful place. The staff was so friendly, and the rooms were very comfortable. My parents... More

We stayed in one of their cottages across the road from the motel. Two very comfortable beds and a full shower. Little kitchen but very clean. The Greco-Roman Express was really good to have. Just wish we could have had more time to explore the area

This was a very pleasant stay. We had a room in the "Green House" that overlooked the bay. The weather was excellent and so it was a memorable stay. The room was very clean. We used the restaurant for dinner and breakfast and the food and service was excellent. We also attended the Gros Morne Theatre while there and it... More

One thing we learned is that to visit the main places in Nflnd you must book well in advance, even months. We were comfortable herein a very clean , well appointed room with fabulous view of the ocean and a door that opened out onto that side, with a nice lawn. Outdoor chairs would have been a very nice touch.... More

Located at the North end of Gros Morne Park, it is a great stop over with varied accommodation for various size groups. We searched "Seafood Chowder" for lunch everywhere we went and their restaurant was my #1. We stayed in a large cabin and went to their Dinner Theatre, where they interpreted the grounding/sinking of the passenger steamship SS Ethie.... More

We arrived to find the cabin we had booked was actually across the road from the water. The front desk staff was extremely helpful in finding us some different options. We finally settled on a guest house cabin overlooking Shallow Bay. Very glad we did, as we loved sitting on the small deck watching the sun set over the bay.... More

We stayed here in a cabin for two nights. A bit pricey but very nice. The hotel restaurant is very expensive. There's a grocery store next door if you feel like cooking. We were in the mood for homemade food so that worked for us. Staff are very friendly.
