Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful surroundings! The room was just your average room - clean and tidy. The front desk staff very friendly. Disappointed in our dining experience both dinner - limited menu available, understaffed and breakfast - buffet style with no hot food choices (because it was a weekday we were told), bruised and moldy fruit and too expensive for what was offered.

The stay at ibsi is very good, the staff are very warm and helpful, and the room check-in is very good. By the way, I really liked the housekeeping staff named May. All the staffs are great, next time I come to Abu Dhabi, I want to have this kind of warmth again.

Recently stayed here for a wedding and it was not a all that the place claims to be. The rooms lacked basic amenities like a desk clock, hair dryer, iron, iron board, bottle water, and room phone. If you needed anything you had to go down to front desk and one front desk person was rather rude. The front desk person asked me if I had a cell phone and that I should use that. WOW! Some service! Some people do not have cell phones.
At the wedding hall it was rather warm and asked 3 different staff members to put on the fans and they ever did it. I opened the patio door half way and they shut it. Covid times and they did not have any air flow.
Upon entering the hotel after a morning walk I informed the front desk that some rude dog owner left a tied up bag of poop by the post in the entrance way. We had to side step it to get into the front door. Two hours later when we left the hotel to go to the marriage ceremony there were 2 more bags added. Nobody removed the first bag (which I told them about 2 hours earlier) so RUDE pet owners were added to the pile.
This resort needs to retrain their staff and step up and start acting like a proper resort. I will not be staying here again.

Poorly furnished room. No dresser or desk. The coffee maker was perched on top of the mini fridge. One bedside table for a queen sized bed. No mirror other than the bathroom. Open clothes hanger shelf facing the bed.

One light in the entrance and one beside lamp. Needed a flashlight to find things in our suitcases.

No wall outlets beside the bed. Light switch for the bathroom was down the hall and behind a door.

We wondered if it was meant to be a guest room or if it was a storage room that had been temporarily set up for guests.

The property seemed to be close to empty, so there should have been lots of rooms to assign to our party of three couples. The two other couples changed rooms soon after checking in. One because their room had not been properly cleaned and there were indications the bed had not been changed. The other because the vent fan for the kitchen was right outside their window.

We did not want the inconvenience of moving but afterwards wished we had.

The restaurant insisted that we make a reservation for the six of us. It was nearly empty when we arrived.

The menu was basic and the waiter told us the fish and chips was the best thing on the menu. We all had it with no complaints.

This was the eighth hotel we were in during a 16 day tour of NFLD and we collectively agreed is was the most disappointing by far.

We recommend that you avoid this property when travelling in NFLD.

This is pretty much the only place to stay within about an hour's drive. I think calling it a resort is a misnomer, but it is a totally fine hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious if not exactly resort-like (think Holiday Inn). The folks at the desk were friendly and helpful, and the parking is easy. The breakfast was not great; the eggs seemed like a fake egg product, although the rest was fine.

We stayed here for 3 nights while visiting friends in a bar nearby. The staff were friendly and the room was comfortable with a great sea view. As much as there was a couple of niggles we still expect to book up for next year.

Myself and 7 friends did the stay and play package in the cabins. First let me say that the wild is absolutely beautiful. Cabins were clean, the golf was beautiful on the first day. Unfortunately the weather changed for the worse the second day and we were unable to play. We were hoping to receive a rain check for the second round (which is included in the price) however we were told that the wilds does not hand out rain checks for the stay and play packages. And true enough the web site does state that however due to the fact that we booked 2 months in advanced and Newfoundland weather is not exactly pridictable, you would think an exception could be made. However and exception could not be made and we went home not receiving what we paid for. To bad I guess. In short I'll say the wilds is a beautiful place but stay away from the stay and play packages. Unless of coarse your sure of the weather.

My husband and I stayed at The Wilds for one night on August 4th , 2007. Friends of ours chose this venue for their wedding.

The grounds and golf course are beautiful and well maintained. The public/common areas of the hotel itself seem fairly clean and well kept, however the guest rooms are a different story.

It's important to be aware that not all of the rooms in this hotel have air conditioning. If you want a room with air conditioning, you must request it at the time of booking, which we did. They also charge about $15 more per night for a room with a/c. Rediculous if you ask me! Either way, when we checked in, we did not have air conditioning as requested.

For $105 per night, the least I would have expected was a clean room. This was not the case. The walls had black marks all over them and were desperately in need of a fresh coat of paint. The bathroom was hideous, complete with tub surround which was bowing off the walls, and dirty brown water in the shower, tap and toilet. The furniture is cheap, old, outdated and covered in water damage where the paper laminate is bubbled up.

The first thing I noticed when drawing back the curtains around the window was dusty cobwebs in the corner. The windows in the room opened no more than 6 inches as they had wooden blocks above them to prevent them from opening any further. This barely allowed a breeze to enter the room. Furthermore, the windows did not have screens to keep unwanted pests out.

This was most certainly not the type of accommodations I expected for the price. I would not recomment this hotel.

Response from NewfoundlandWilds, General manager at The Wilds at Salmonier River Hotel Rooms & Suites
Responded 14 Feb 2010
I took this hotel over 3 years ago, I took all the furniture & donated it to several charities. We have put over $500,000 into the hotel in that time. We have moved from a 2.5 rating to a 3.5 star rating. our water comes from a large river on our property that comes from a wilderness area, fresh clean water. The downside is when it rains sediment from the river banks run into the water. We have now upgraded our chlorine & filtration systems. go to our website see The New wilds. We are a beautiful hotel that needed work, we have done the work & still continue to ever day. If anyone has any questions or concerns please contact me personally regards, Jeff Peddle General Manager 1-709-229-5444 jpeddle@thewilds.ca

We had our wedding there in June 2013, and it was a fantastic experience. The food was wonderful, the service was awesome, staff are so friendly and helpful!! Our ceremony was held outside on site, and the reception in their banquet facility, which they decorated beautifully. We have heard nothing but good comments from our guests about the experience! Their hotel rooms are nicely decorated, and have very comfortable beds! Would definitely recommend this resort for any event! :)

Answer from The_Wilds_Mgmt

Hello Mel! Thanks for your question. Our cottages DO have laundry facilities in each one, as well as kitchenettes and BBQ's. We can certainly look into booking one of those for your stay. Unfortunately we do not yet have laundry facilities in the hotel or villas. Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
