The room was clean and the bathroom was clean which is very important. The staff were number one in my books. Really friendly and would do anything for you. We stayed in the units across the street so had a few stairs to climb. Next time I would like to stay in the main hotel.

This is the only "hotel" in Cow Head. We had not intended to stay here but due to a car problem we needed a room at the last minute and I got lucky to get a room here. We stayed in one of the cottages, it was a bit tired and old. Nice to have a kitchen and fridge. Got... More

Hotel is right on Shallow Bay beach so view is great. Rooms are sparkling clean and as we had ocean view--our room was bright with a wide view. Windows can open so you can hear waves on beach. Wonderful. Staff all very friendly and accommodating. Rooms have bar fridge, coffee maker but free wifi is slow--probably maxed out as hotel... More

Spent 2 night here - one in a standard motel-like room and another in a 2 bedroom cabin. Both very good. It is - as someone has said already - the only game in town. Many tour bus groups come here and are an obvious priority for the owners. This gives rise to sloppiness in the restaurant where many dinners... More

No complaints. We had a room in a B&B that is affiliated with the motel and it was all we needed--close, clean and with a small communal kitchen down the hall. The restaurant at he motel was very busy and the wait staff were doing an admirable job. Food itself was standard and a bit overpriced for what you get.... More

We stayed at the Shallow Bay for one night. We were fortunate to find a room there since people from three tour buses were also staying there on that night. The room was very clean and comfortable; we would stay there again. Cow Head is a most pleasant village.

We recently visited Cow Head and stayed in one of the Shallow Bay B&B properties, ate at the restaurant (dinner as well as the included breakfast) and attended a play at the Gros Morne theatre. Our B& B unit was in a separate self-contained building just a half a block from the main hotel building, where we had our included... More
