We stayed in a private cabin across the street from the motel. The compact cabin had everything that we needed for our one night stay (2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchenette, sitting room). Convenience store and Tim Hortons were nearby. Favourite stop for bus tours and drivers starting or finishing their drive across Labrador. Satellite phones are available here. Small gift shop and restaurant on site. The cabin isn't soundproof but we were not bothered by any noisy neighbours.

We stayed here enroute to the Labrador-Newfoundland ferry. The inn's location had little other to recommend it, the room was small and not very comfortable, and the food was barely adequate. They could do better.

Only had one night in Labrador [to tour as far as Red Bay]. The Inn was likely the best in the area. It was a bit different but fine. Toiletries and coffee/tea services were like any prior hotel in the province. Its restaurant had a varied selection with good seafood though another chap was just so so about his mussels. None of the four possible wifi connections worked, a bit disappointing. A lobby computer was connected so could get an email home. The tile on part of the room floor was unusual, compounding the fact the hotel had a cool temperature. The phone showed a message but it was a short in the system. Got a bit of exercise out of it. The hallways have little cushion, walking being a loud experience if you do not purposefully tread lightly. Staff were pleasant. The place overall did the job.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We are pleased to know that you had a pleasant stay! It's great that you were able to avail of the services offered, including the lobby computer. As you may understand, the wifi strength is a bit beyond our control as it reflects the limited bandwidth available to the region as a whole. Thank you for staying with us and we hope to have the privilege of serving you again in the future.

We unfortunately had two nights there because we wanted to discover a part of Labrador from there. The hotel is close to the ferry and that’s why we’ve chosen it. Shortly after arriving we had to realize that bus trips are more welcomed than we normal tourists. An example is the dinner, the tables we reserved for them and we .... should wait or go somewhere else. Somewhere else in the middle of nowhere- impossible. The only option : fast food! The room itself was good, big enough but we could listen everyones step from above and the worst one - we could attend their toilets visits !!! And the flushing disturbed our night ! I was complaining last night because the people above were running for more than an hour in their room and the steps were so loud that we turned the tv off ..... I’m sorry but we won’t come back !

We are so sorry to hear that your experience was not what it should have been. Although we do serve bus tours, each and every guest is equally important to us!!!! We are sorry that you arrived at the restaurant at a time when it was very busy. We have two separate dining areas to accommodate all of our guests in a timely manner, however, as with any establishment, sometimes there is a small wait. Please note that reserved tables there are to identify the group seating - and there are always tables left open for our individual travelers. This is done not to give priority to any particular guest or group, but to keep things running efficiently so that all guests have a place to eat. As for the noise, we apologize that other visitors disturbed your stay. However, if you had contacted our front desk, we would have been happy to address this with them. We have 24 hour service at our front desk to assist our visitors in this way. We work hard to ensure that all guests have an enjoyable and comfortable stay with us, and are sorry that this was not the case for you. We wish you all the very best in your future travels.
