“Reasonable place to stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

Nice location overlooking the Old Ferolle Harbor. Accommodations are basic; clean rooms, WiFi, TV. Service at restaurant was slow, food (dinner and breakfast) was of average quality, not superb, but not bad.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with family

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2011

We stayed here for two nights in September 2011, primarily because there is very little to choose from in this part of Newfoundland. It is a basic, basic motel in terms of appointments, but it was clean and the bed was hard. It smelled a little of disinfectant, but that's good. Right? The staff are lovely, charming ... everything good you've heard about Newfies. The dining room served good home cooking. The bar was quite outdated, but who cares. The hotel is only a few minutes from the ferry to Labrador and is used by large bus tour groups. If you don't have any other choices, this motel will do.

I selected this particular motel as it is used by several of the bus tours in Newfoundland and is very close to St Barbe. The motel is a standard 3* style. Four of us were travelling together so we rented two rooms. Both rooms were basic but very clean. The beds comfortable. The motel was quiet with very little traffic noise. The restaurant is easily accessible through the motel walkway near the lobby. The food was good and reasonably priced. A good selection of fresh seafood/fish on the menu. The portions were large.

Stayed in one of the cottages. It has room for a family of 4. Kitchen. Large washroom. Internet..a little slow.
The resturant serves good food nut one waitdress we had didn't ask us for drinks. Even after the food arrived. Maybe she was new but she seemed a little miffed that we were there.
Overall. Worth the price.

Room Tip: I hear the internet is faster in the hotel.

The Motel lobby has been recently updated, it has a simple but elegant decor. The room was clean and comfortable, bed very comfortable. Two beds in room if I needed the second. Dining room could use a freshening up, but still nice, great view, Food was great, the seafood is prepared in a simple but very tasty manner. It was fresh, I doubt if the Salmon I had, had ever been frozen. Desserts weren't made on site. The servers were awesome. Among the best service I have ever enjoyed. The people at the motel were very friendly. Locals at the bar made you fell welcome and immediately fitted in, bartenders very friendly as well, service a bet slow though, they seemed more interested in chatting than serving and disappeared for long periods of time. Smokers probably. Trusting bunch.

Room Tip: ASk for a quite room away from the lobby

I stayed at this motel for one night, it had a very bad smell and it was very dirty, the sofa was so dirty I had to put a blanket on it so I could sit. I even saw several weird bugs throughout. It will be my last stay at this motel.

Plum Point is a very useful place to stay if you want to take the ferry from nearby St Barbe to Blanc Sablon, the gateway to Labrador. It's just as good for those who (like us) had just arrived on the ferry from Labrador and didn't much fancy hanging around the rather gloomy dock area at St Barbe. The motel is clean, comfortable and exceptionally quiet. We paid a little extra for a two-bedroom cabin at the back and didn't hear a thing all night. The other big advantage of the Plum Point Motel is that the dining room stays open till 10 pm. This is especially useful when you're in a fairly remote area of Newfoundland and the restaurant options are limited. The food was the usual fried fare, adequately prepared, but we were just happy to be fed. I'd recommend this place without hesitation.
