Our B& B unit was in a separate self-contained building just a half a block from the main hotel building, where we had our included...

Good location about 20 minute drive from the parking area for the Western Brook Pond boat ride, and directly on the beach, a few kilometres off the highway. We had room 154, with ocean view. The room was relatively small but freshly renovated. It had a coffee maker, mini-refrigerator, ironing board, table, desk, television. It had a double bed only...

Lovely hotel on the beach. We chose the location because we had tickets to the Gros Morne Theatre Festival in the building. Hotel amenities more than adequate and loved opening our porch door onto the beach in the morning.

Our tour stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were comfortable and spacious. The cottages were amazing - an apartment with 2 separate bedrooms, kitchen and living area. This is a family owned and run property and you are treated like family. Their attention to detail and providing excellent service showed throughout our stay. They also have the Gros Morne...

We were originally booked at the Ocean View Resort in Rocky Harbour, but when we got there we found out that there was no running water in the entire town! So we moved further up the road to Cow Head, and stayed here. What a delightful place. The staff was so friendly, and the rooms were very comfortable. My parents...

We stayed in one of their cottages across the road from the motel. Two very comfortable beds and a full shower. Little kitchen but very clean. The Greco-Roman Express was really good to have. Just wish we could have had more time to explore the area

One thing we learned is that to visit the main places in Nflnd you must book well in advance, even months. We were comfortable herein a very clean , well appointed room with fabulous view of the ocean and a door that opened out onto that side, with a nice lawn. Outdoor chairs would have been a very nice touch....
