“Great rooms and views”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

I enjoyed my stay at the Shallow Bay Motel and Cabins. The room was clean, good bed, reasonable price and offered a great ocean view. The Hot tub was much appreciated after a day of riding! The motel staff were very helpful and courteous.

Room Tip: As a rider I wished I'd have been able to get a cabin to make packing my gear to the room a litt...

This is my second time at Shallow Bay. Nice location, easy to visit places in Gros Morne NP. Food in restaurant good, nice service. If you're there during a show night at the next door theater, by all means go! Good local productions.

Recently, my husband and I enjoyed a 2 night stay at this property. Our room, was quite rustic, but comfortable and clean and was a perfect place from which to set out for adventures in Gros Morne N.P. The meals were very good, staff friendly and helpful and there was a dinner show in the building next door, with local talent, which was fun. There is an out door pool for sunning and a hot tub .There was a friendly, black dog from the neighbourhood who liked to visit us on our deck. He enjoyed running after sticks along the beach at low tide.

Room Tip: Ask for a room along the shore and you will have your own terrace from which to watch the tides and...

This review is for the motel rooms. This is not a luxury or resort property. It is basic, functional, with good attentive service. Location is in Cow Head on the north side of Gros Morne National Park. Its location is just 15 minutes north of the parking lot for the Western Brook Pond trail. Rooms on the west side of the hotel overlook Cow Bay. Stairs from the hotel lead to the beach. So the setting is really attractive. The room was basic, but spotlessly clean. Furnishings were limited to a desk and small table. Lighting was fair, with no light at the desk. Mattress was extremely soft. Heating was with electric floor heaters, which had no temperature settings--just a dial. So adjusting the temperature in the room was a challenge. Soundproofing was poor--hope for quiet neighbors. Window opens. Some second floor rooms have just one access route--which could be a serious hazard if there was a fire. Hotel has a restaurant (not many other choices for food in Cow Bay). There is no traffic noise since Cow Bay is located a short distance to the west of the main highway, which bypasses the town. Gros Morne Theatre Festival office is adjacent.

Room Tip: Select rooms on the west side of the hotel for ocean views of Cow Bay.

We stayed here one night on Aug 4/13 in a two bedroom cabin which was lovely. The cabin was spotlessly clean. The staff is very friendly. There is everything in the cabin you need to cook a meal and we enjoyed a home cooked breakfast before heading out. There is a stove in the living room which would be cozy in the fall coolness. We ate supper at the restaurant on the premises which was average. We attended the Gros Morne Festival Theatre in the evening with young local talent that was thoroughly enjoyable. The cabin area was quiet the night we stayed; we had a good sleep and would definitely stay here again in the cabins.

Great motel in the middle of Gros Morne National Park. The room was clean, but could be noisy with a different crowd. Walls are a bit thin between rooms. But great service at the motel and great food in the dining room. The motel appears to cater to bus tours which I was a part of, Not sure if individual travellers would fair as well. Free internet included. Also has a community computer in the lobby.

We stayed one night at the cabins here. A little more expensive and a lot busier than other places we've been to. The cabins are across the road from the hotel that contains a small pub, a very nice dining room and rooms (nice ones facing ocean). There is also a small but busy theatre with local talent on premises that is worth seeing. Overall not a bad spot to spend a night. Very nice cabin, excellent staff.
