Strawberry Hill Inn & Chalets
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Corner Brook
Reviewed August 28, 2008

We recently spent three nights at Strawberry Hill Resort, which is a combination of rooms located in the old manor house and newer chalets with full housekeeping capacity; the emphasis here seems to be on the latter. We stayed in the manor house, which is beautiful, and the room was lovely - very large, clean, and nicely appointed though a bit dated (with a walk-in closet, what a luxury!). The dining room is beautiful, overlooking the patio and lush lawns, but we discovered they only actually serve dinner there on the weekends. (The food was okay but by no means the best we had during our visit to Newfoundland.) Other days you have to go somewhere else for lunch and dinner, and they have an arrangement with nearby Humber Valley Resort (which seems much livelier); fortunately the food in the family restaurant there was very good. Continental breakfast was included with the room, and it was adequate but nothing special - cereals and muffins. Staff were not particularly friendly or helpful and didn't seem very interested in the manor house guests. We used the resort as a base from which to explore Gros Morne, rather than staying in the park, where the accommodations are less luxurious. We had underestimated the distance so it took us about an hour each day to get to the park; better to have gone for more rustic and closer in retrospect.

Given that the resort presents itself as having had Queen Elizabeth and Pierre Trudeau as guests in the past, all in all, it was somewhat less than what we had anticipated as an overall luxurious experience: I think Strawberry Hill is a bit "over the hill" in terms of service and services (not even a pop machine as far as I could tell!).

Stayed there for 3 nights while traveling in NL for our honeymoon. Awesome establishment and great location. Quiet little place with easy access to the Trans-Canada Hwy. about 50mins drive to the heart of Gros Morne National Park; 20min drive to Deer Lake airport.

Paid $115 + tax per night, including continental breakfast for two. Room was a little small but it was very clean and comfortable. Loved the dinning room decor - very tastefully done. There is a sitting area and also a patio for the guests to use - great view during sunset. Free internet + Wi-Fi.

The Mansion is linked to Humber Valley Resort nearby and we've access to their facility (plus the free shuttle service). My husband golfed one moring and I also visited the resort spa. Golf course was okay for the price we paid. the Found Spa was nice and I'd a very relaxing time there (great view, nice chalet, friendly and experienced staff).

We also ate the the Slurry's Pub at Humber Valley - great price, appox $40 for dinner for two including alcohol and the food was awesome (considering it was a decent resort we thought it'd cost more). We liked it so much that we actually went back again.

Only downside, room does not have A/C (only a fan)...but since it is located in a valley, there is a natural breeze coming through at night. But if you don't like fresh air / have any allergies to grass/ plants you might want to avoid this place.
