Bayside Cottages are a good choice for your stay in Gros Morne National Park. Centrally located with well equipped kitchens, they are a good value.
LOCATION: Easy to find on Main Street and right across from the water, the cottages have a great location in Rocky Harbour. It is an easy walk to restaurants (Eddies, Fisherman's), grocery store, and the 'nightlife' at the Oceanside (there is live music Wed and Fri). Our room had a nice view of the water. Easy drive to many of the hikes.
ROOM: Clean room with a well equipped kitchen (range, micro, fridge, cookware, dishes, etc.). Table and seating for 4. The only place where this establishment lost points with me and my travel partner is the bed. It was old and the mattress wasn't very comfortable. Luckily we were so worn out by all the hiking that it didn't bother us very much. If the owners updated the mattresses it would definitely add to the property. The decor is outdated too but you almost have to expect that with this type of accomodation. There was a small sofa and tv as well, although we didn't really use them.
BATHROOM: Clean and good shower pressure. No hair dryer.
STAFF: All the staff we encountered were pleasant and helpful. Check in/out was a breeze.
OTHER: No laundry facilities (although some nearby) and lots of parking. Fish Plant at the end of the road has great cheap seafood if you can cook for yourself.
OVERALL: Good value if you are looking for a step up from camping. Definitely worth having cooking facilities to take advantage of the fresh seafood!
