“Nice paddle but not much to see”
Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Can't comment on accommodation as only did ecotours kayak trip. Guide was perfectly nice and very pleasant. Was not a local and could or did not share much about history etc. Very little -actually none -wildlife to be seen. So quite expensive $200 for 4 people for what was not much more than a nice paddle around the harbour.

“Good clean place/nice local people as staff”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Nice clean room (humpback), quiet and clean. Continental breakfast good homemade stuff. Good menu of local fare available all day. Ate at a couple of other local places-pricier, not as good, not as homey an atmosphere. I feel like I tried "real" cod tongues prepared the way the locals eat them, not some touristy "bar" version. We felt like we were visiting relatives. Great zodiac whale tour. Good hikes close by. Skegwink trail a short drive away is a must see.

“Be careful”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here one night because it was the only place available. The rooms were good, but the included breakfast was only a continental, but the owner kept asking if you wanted something else without telling you it was extra. We also had lunch, not recommended for low salt diets and frankly not very good. Go for the rooms but eat somewhere else.

Firstly I must apologise if it was understood that a hot breakfast was included, A continental breakfast including homemade bread is available plus cereals muffins yogurt etc,,, , Hot breakfasts are not included. We indicate on our website that continental breakfast is part of the room price. I can not say it is the owner that kept asking as I am the owner and I was definitely not there at the time. It must have been part of the new management staff that was recently hired.

I will admit that the menu can be a little on the salty side as we are trying to serve more traditional Newfoundland fare and the local diet had a tendency to be a little bit more salty including salt beef, salt fish, fish cakes and things fried in salt pork (scruncheons) like fish, cod tongues and halibut.

Certainly I will address the issues. Thank you for your comment and making me aware of your concerns.

“Siamsa Singers loved it”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Several members of our choir signed on to go on a kayaking adventure. They were thrilled with the scenery and appreciated being able to take a cooling dip in the fresh water waterfall they encountered along the way.

“Amazing whale watching!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

We had the most amazing whale watching trip with our captain, Gerald! As much as he goes out, he still enjoys the whales and really tried to get the best experience for us. We were blessed with many and very active whales. That's something they can't control, but our trip was one of the highlights of an awesome time in NL.
