This hotel is extremely dated, and the lack of TLC in the main common areas really surprised me, carpet is disgustingly worn/dirty, walls have dings/dirt, doorways have partially chipped paint and little bit of TLC could go a long way. Our room was spotless, mattress was very comfortable, bathroom was extremely dated and a mixmatch of colours and textures. Restaurant... More

While touring newfoundland we came across some Fellow Texans who overhearing our dilemma regarding finding accommodations for the next leg of our trip recommended highly that we stay at the Albatross Hotel. So glad that we did. Yes this hotel could use some upgrading, but what is more important, fancy fixtures or a clean, comfortable room? The rooms at this... More

We had pre-booked our rooms at the Albatross and were not disappointed. Convenient car parking right outside the hotel room door, comfy beds, wifi, tv, non-smoking rooms. Dinner in the dining room as delicious, and the "guest" special price of $5.95 for breakfast was great. Recommended.

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
