Stayed here for one night. Clean room but very very worn hotel. The room we stayed in was very old, lumpy bed , very old and small , flooring , tub , lamps ect....Need a lot of updates . Smelled very old. For the price of $151.00 a night with the discount , this is awful. Probably won't stay here... More

We have had regular stays at the Albatross over the past 40 years, but this week was our first stay there in 10 years. Our first (and lasting) impression was amazement at how closely it resembled the Albatross, circa 1975, only more run down. The same gaudy carpet, the same worn furniture, the same cheap bathroom fixtures, the same ancient... More

The staff were very professional and absolutely the most friendliness staff I ever met during my travel. They definitely show what people what Newfoundland hospitality is. I wish we took one of the suites however, our room suited us perfectly. The dining was top notch and again the staff were very professional. Overall cost was very reasonable for us. They... More

Have stayed here many many times, and it is a convenient stop along the way for a weary traveler whether .driving or flying. Food in the restaurant is always great! Staff at the front desk are always friendly and helpful! The price was fair for what you're getting. As with the style of a slightly older hotel it is a... More

This is a highway hotel, located right along the TCH. Nearby are several restaurants, gas stations and other hotels. It's convenient for travellers but a bit on the noisy side. The rooms are reasonably modern but most of the hotel shows it's age with tired old carpets, wall panelling, a labyrinth of hallways, old elevators and old decorating. Fortunately the... More

The room was nice, the beds were comffortable with a good selection of pillows, the bathroom was good with toiletteries and good towels. Coffee maker in tHe room, wifi worked great, free parking, and the restaurant was delicious. The front desk staff were exceptionaly friendly, glad we chose the Albatross!

I stayed here with my Dad in June, on our way in and out of another town in Newfoundland. Westjet flights from Toronto get in very late (1am) and depart very early (6am). On our first night we had a room on the 2nd floor -- I may have been tired, but it seems our second time back on the... More

I stayed at the Albatross Motel on the TCH for business. The service was very friendly and the rooms were pretty standard. The bathroom could need updating but the beds were really comfortable. I asked for a DVD player but they did not have one.

The hotel is in a convenient location. I had a room with one queen bed, and would recommend that for the same price get a room with two beds as the room was really small and uncomfortable. The photos on TripAdvisor of this hotel are misleading, IMO. The heater/AC unit at the window was dated and difficult to adjust. The... More
