Stayed here for 3 nights while working in Gander. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. The room had two large beds which didn't leave a lot of floor space. Bathroom appeared to be recently renovated and it was clean and in good working order. I didn't try the on-site restaurant, but there are many...

We stayed here one night only. It is in a convenient location right off the Trans-Canada Highway. The room was clean and comfortable. The reception staff were friendly. This was the third time that we stayed here.

This hotel is under renovations, which are LONG overdue. For that, I am thankful. The check in staff were great. They were friendly and helpful. However, the room itself and the journey to get there is far less than ideal. I will likely not stay here again until the renovations are complete. There is exposed construction that seems unsafe. The...

Thank you for your review, we appreciate any feedback we receive. We are currently working very hard to complete our construction as safely and as quickly as possible. We are working with Occupational Health and Safety and requirements are being met in the renovation process. Hopefully, when the renovations are complete, the trek to the room will become much shorter....

Three of us stayed here Saturday night after a long ferry ride and an even longer drive. On arrival the front desk lady was helpful and very pleasant.

There was a swim meet in town so we were hunting for a place to eat. The Albatross' restaurant was one of few decent places in town. It wasn't bad and it wasn't good; it was just average. It's a throwback to the past in decor and menu, well past its prime.

Hotel was very clean and the beds were very comfortable however there were two ice machines, one out of service and one with no ice. My sister went to bar and the server managed to scrounge up a little ice. The two glasses in room were child size, there was no fridge, no microwave. Breakfast was provided but we had...

Thank You for your review. We are terribly sorry about the inconvenience you had with the ice machine, currently we are under renovations and had to shut our water off a few times. When we do that it sometimes takes a little while for our ice machines to refill. All of our breakfast promotions with room packages does not include...

As others have already stated, this hotel is in need of updating. The room was clean and in good repair but the common areas were shabby. Internet worked well. The staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. I thought the hotel was overpriced for the quality provided.

Pros: Staff were super nice and very helpful in trying to help us troubleshoot our internet connection (even though it eventually turned out we were too far away from the router). Beds were comfortable. Room was clean. Cons: The stairwell was under renovations for a new elevator, however, it still needed to be cleaner - cracker crumbs were mixed with...
