Terra Nova Resort & Golf Community
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Port Blandford
Reviewed October 7, 2008

Well, we decided to try something different at Terra Nova this Summer for a 5 day visit and Fall for a three day stay. We booked a chalet through the lodge instead of the Hotel and what a great choice it was. There we several of us to share the cost and it was pricier than the hotel, but you know what they say, you get what you pay for. $300 a night put us in a beautiful large private home with air conditioning, hardwood floors, full kitchen, patio with BBQ, 42" flat screen TV with 100 channels, extra bathrooms, comfortable beds, washer/dryer combo and even a dish washer. It was great. Very quiet and clean. Only a short 2 minute walk to the hotel pro shop, bar and pool area.

The golf course has made a wonderful recovery from the harsh winter and disappointing Spring conditions. They hosted the Provicial Amateur Championships in July and the course was in great condition, and the best news is that it stayed that way right through the rest of Summer and Fall. I was very impressed by the shape of the fairways and greens. Of course the beautiful vistas and the layout of the course always impress. The bunkers still need to be improved but they are getting there. The weather was perfect during both visits.

We did try the dining room at the Hotel on our most recent trip and the food was okay... and the service was very friendly.
The golf staff are great fun, full of small town charm and smiling faces.

By far the best course on the Island.

This property fit our needs perfectly as it was the right distance between St. Johns and our next destination to break up the drive. It also was one of the few hotels in Newfoundland with air conditioning which was an important consideration to us. The lodge has a nice fresh appearance with an attractive building and nice landscaping. Our rooms had a faint smell of cigaraette smoke despite being non-smoking but the desk clerk gave us some spray which was effective in eliminating the odor. Our beds were comfortable, and the view from our windows was beautiful as we could see out into the bay with mountains behind that. The pool area was inviting though we didn't take a dip. There are nice grounds for walking and we enjoyed a stroll out onto a dock extending into the lake behind the lodge. Golfers will love this property as it has a couple of outstanding looking courses...we were invited to take a peak and the trail to the course crosses a small bridge over a stream on the way to and from the course. The first tee offers a view of the bay and on the 18th hole, golfers tee off over a waterfall. Do note that the hotel restaurant is expensive and the town is really just a collection of maybe 100 small homes. We ended up eating sandwiches for dinner at a small takeout oriented cafe connected to a convenience store and gas station along the Trans Canada Highway. It was very clean and the waitress was very pleasant. It is the only alternative to the hotel dining room but was sufficient for a one night stay. We ate in the hotel dining room the next morning and found it adequate. We are glad we stayed at the Terra Nova Golf Resort .

We stayed two nights at the golf resort. First, if you're a golfer, you shouldn't miss this course which is the best on the island. Absolutely beautiful. The hotel just doesn't live up to the golf -- it's not bad, just quite ordinary. The pool is small with no deep end or interesting landscaping, and the rooms are fine but, well, ordinary. The dining room was a disappointment, with all of us finding our food overpriced and bland. If you stay here, it's worth leaving the property to eat elsewhere. Clarenville isn't far off, and we had a good meal at St. Jude's hotel our second night there.
