“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed August 9, 2011

The trusty GPS was not aware of the one way streets in Corner Brook, so was surprised when we finally arrived at the old Tudor style building in the park like setting. First impression was not great as front desk staff was not too friendly and the lobby area was very tired, but the updated rooms in the new wing were spacious and modern. The Carriage Room restaurant meal was passable but protions were small. Much better in quality is the Wine Cellar's menu and servings. A good tipe is to walk down the street and eat at Sorrento's Italian restaurant where the homemade pasta is to die for. And of course, Tim's is only a block away!

Room Tip: Make sure you are in the new wing.

Always stay here when we visit Corner Brook. The hotel is charming and quaint and a litle old but nice. The dining room (Carriage Room) serves good food and is nicely decorated. The only complaint I have is with their fine dining restaurant (the Wine Cellar). Everything was fine except for the seafood. I had the seafood platter and the halibut and salmon and scallops were way overcooked. The chef needs to go back to culinary school!!

We booked this hotel on a recent trip to Newfoundland. It takes about 9-12 hours to drive from Port-aux-Basques to St. John's, so we needed a place to stay in between and get there before dark. The entrance of this property needs a good renovation, as it looks like it hasn't been touched since it was built. The same for the lobby - well worn and tired looking. Once in the room however, it was all redone, with modern amenities and new bedding and furniture. The beds were comfy, the room was quiet (we arrived on a Sunday), so we had a good night's sleep. If you are not fussy, this will be a good place to get a good night's rest.

We looked forward to staying at the Glynmill however we came away disappointed.
Our experience was that the room was very comfortable - beds and bathroom were wonderful.
However, the staff seemed to be lacking in the basics of Hospitality 101. We felt that the staff at the front desk did not present themselves in a professional manner. The staff in the Cellar Restaurant, and the dining room where our server spoke very loudly, did not display a real desire to make their customers comfortable. The food here is certainly not outstanding. In the Cellar we did not finish our meal; in the dining room our breakfast was better. The Glynmill has a lot of potential - beautiful setting and history . Now let's improve the service and food.

Overall a really great stay... my room was a suite with a living area and seperate bedroom, very big. The more formal restaurant served a wonderful meal while the main floor dining was just average. Only disappointing thing was that after a long conference the pub, which was open unlike the restaurant, did not have even basic finger food because the kitchen didn't open til 5...Everyone was really helpful...printer wasn't workng in the business centre but the front desk were very accomodating and helped me get what I needed. If you are going to Corner Brook for business and use Rogers as your mobile service beware....there is no Rogers service at all.

Avoid this place if there is any function planned. Noise from ballroom to rest of hotel made sleep impossible.

All other aspects of Inn were fine.

I stayed here for 5 nights with a large group of family and friends for my brother's wedding.

Rooms: The rooms were spacious and clean. The air conditioning worked great but there are no balconies directly attached to the room. However, there are several balconies in the hall you can access. The beds were comfortable and the cleaning staff were great.

Restaurant: We ate breakfast at the restaurant the morning of the wedding and the service was slow but the food was good.

Staff: The staff were really friendly and professional.

Location: It's only a 15 minute walk from downtown and the parking is free at the hotel.

Convention Room: My brother's wedding was in the salon downstairs and the service was excellent. It can only accommodate around 75 people.
