Went for a wedding and stayed for a few days. Ida, our cleaning person, was very helpful and thorough. The hotel is much better now that there are new owners, completely redone. Restaurant was good and the bar had entertainment on the weekend. Seemed very busy as well.

When I booked this place, I did not expect too much; just a place to sleep after a long day of motorcycle riding. We arrived to a nice clean, if not plain, looking motel with a nice view that overlooks the bay and the Newfoundland ferry terminal. Check in was fast and before we new it, we were in our...

If you book here ask to not be booked near stairwells. The exterior doors slam constantly and even though we were on the second floor we heard it loud and clear all night. It doesn't help that people are obviously rude and don't hold the door back behind them to avoid this. It really not the hotel's fault, it's ignorant...

We stayed here the evening before we took the ferry to new foundland. Nice view and overlooks the terminal. The hotel was quite busy and when we checked in were upgraded to a room with a king bed for no charge. Room was fine - clean, comfortable. The decor seems to have been recently updated with paneling, so it has...

This hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, but it is very nice! Our room was large and beds were very comfy! Bonus was that they have guest laundry facilities on site which was awesome -$3/load and same for dryer but totally worth it for the convenience! They sell Tide Pods and Bounce sheets at Reception! Restaurant has a...

The hotel looks to be updated, rooms are clean. There is a restaurant attached which is really good. Halls are really hot and smell a bit like smoking used to be permitted, not bad though. Kids enjoyed watching the ferry from our room. Definitely would recommend staying here. Only complaint is the same one we keep running into, room booked...

The room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom was very spacious. My teenage son was happy with the wifi signal! The food was great at the restaurant, and we were served generous portions. It is a very convenient location close to amenities and the Newfoundland Ferry. We would definitely return. Overall a nice stay!

We stayed here for 2 weeks while my husband was working. Ida, our cleaning lady always made sure we had everything we needed to be comfortable. The girls at the dining room were always sweet and polite, made sure you felt like part of the family. Especially, Heather .. Who goes beyond your expectations! Great place to stay. Close to...

The staff was rude and unhelpful, the restaurant was terrible and it was an awful stay. Don't stay here. Not worth it. We booked a junior suite online and when we arrived we were told they don't have that kind of room. We told them it was what we booked on an outside website and they told us they knew...
