We stayed one night when we took our family to L'Anse aux Meadows. We have three kids and our room was spacious for our family of five. The pull out murphy bed was comfortable for my 11-year old daughter. The room was updated and clean. We made use of the laundry facilities and they were in good working order. The breakfast in the morning was simple but fresh and the breakfast room was large with lots of natural light. The service was great as the lady at the front desk showed me to my room and when I asked her for restaurant suggestions for dinner, she happily recommended a place and let me browse a few menus she had handy to compare restaurants in the area. A very pleasant stay in St. Anthony!

Our ferry to Labrador was cancelled b/c of weather. Grenfell Heritage saved our bacon by getting us a room a day early. Very nice stay. Room was clean. People were helpful with recommendations and were so friendly. We were very comfortable. Great stay and great people!

Great central location. Friendly and competent staff made sure we saw all of the local sights. Clean and comfortable rooms. Parking lot could use better lighting and pavement. Basic continental breakfast included.

We stayed two nights awaiting the arrival of Hurricane Dorion, which turned out to be a bit of a bust. We had hoped for a little more excitement actually. Nonetheless our unit was squeeky clean, beds very comfortable but what made it was Marilyn (who had a million stories to tell as only a Newfoundlander can) and Lillian who shared a couple of our favorite Newfoundland songs in the lobby as the storm passed us by. You don’t get that in a Holiday Express. Yes the breakfast is not designed for anyone looking for some protein item but a little fridge with some yogurt, hard boiled eggs and cheeses would provide a second choice. Felt like part of the family. We checked out before breakfast as we had a 10 hour drive ahead of us and the very accommodating man at the front desk provided a couple of muffins for our journey

Lovely room, nice hotel but the highlight was Kathy on check in. Warm, welcoming and helpful. A great person to set the tone for our stay. Also a shout out to the woman working in the breakfast room. She kept me supplied with water for my tea with a smile.

This is a very nice hotel. Rooms are large with fully stocked kitchenette. Beds comfortable. Breakfast pretty good. Only con is the air conditioner is very noisy. No way to sleep with it on. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Upon entering the hotel, I was struck by the homey and clean atmosphere. All the staff at the front desk were polite and very helpful. A continental breakfast was served and appreciated. We stayed in a suite which had a full kitchen set of appliances. The room was clean and deeply appreciated after the long drive northward from Gros Morne. I would definitely return to stay.

We have stayed here 2 years in. A row. Large room with a kitchen/dining area. Very comfortable . Love that they have laundry which we need after traveling to the top of the rock.Stairs to the 2nd floor make luging suitcases a bit of a chore for older folks. But the room was comfortable.

This hotel , more accurately a set of so called “efficiency units“ , has 17 out of 18 rooms with kitchens for guests, and serves the worst breakfast in the world for those who have innocently booked it as a hotel. It has little or no competition and I suppose why that it doesn’t try to up its game. It’s drab and very old and dark... and doesn’t seem to have changed since I was last here four decades ago. The breakfast is even worse than I remember, and that is saying something. The rooms are plain and dreary with slippery wooden floors where I came a cropper. Fixtures and fitting very dated. The smell of cooked food wafting around from various rooms in the two corridors was obvious. Yet there is a “no cooking rule” for guests who have to eat the so called breakfast ... which is served in the austere conference room. They apparently do not have a licence for cooking food hence no provision for a hot breakfast. Given the smell of bacon and eggs wafting from the bedrooms next door, where others were cooking for themselves, I don’t understand this. And if there is a need for such a licence and guests are asking for hot food then why not apply? Because it all costs money and staff time so every constructive comment in the many poor reviews of this establishment is shrugged off with an excuse. If you can’t cook hot food, but you would please your guests by doing so, then apply for a licence. I have never come across a hotel that cannot cook. Some reviewers have suggested cold hard boiled eggs as an alternative to the shockingly unhealthy highly processed carbs , but apparently they require cooking ...which is out. So why not buy them cooked from the local store. Or bring in cooked? Or, since there is a toaster, why not provide those kits where you boiled your own egg in hot water? But having nothing hot to eat isn’t the end of the world as there are plenty of lovely cold foods that would balance or replace the industrially processed offerings here. And rather than have a functioning licensed hot kitchen, if their is such a thing, it only takes a fridge to keep cheeses, home made pickles, ham, granola, berries, fresh yogurt, home made jams etc. You can even freeze nice bread rather than blame the lack of a local baker for the ghastly processed stuff that is provided. Local jams are for sale the hotel lobby so why not use them and highlight them for extra sales? But no, despite the recurrent criticisms on trip advisor, management have failed to respond or improve anything. Everything suggested by guests is banned for one reason or another. So what’s left? Here you serve yourself to cutlery etc and are expected to clear up afterwards too. Lukewarm coffee and water for tea. Three cheap breakfast cereals in plastic dispensers and packets of diy oats to mix with tepid water. Budget brand juice and a selection of processed bread to toast to eat with highly processed Cheese whiz and those tooth rotting sugary things supposed to be jam but made from clear sugar and artificial flavouring. Never been near a fruit in their lives. There is nothing natural at all here and the worst was a tiny plastic tub of “honey with added glucose syrup” .. how cheap can you get. Then it stuck me. There is nothing served apart, from the milk, that needs a fridge. And since guests have to do everything themselves, including setting places and clearing up you don’t need any staff either. Didn’t see anyone. So it’s all designed for ultimate cheapness and not guest pleasure or satisfaction. Everything is met with excuses and their is no customer service at all. And no wish to seem to improve. Avoid. Or opt to go to Tim Hortons for breakfast and ask for a refund

Our room for 2 nights was sandwiched between the housekeepers closet and the front desk. There were actually 2 vacuum cleaners outside the door. We could hear the noise from the front desk. The property had two wings and the room we were in was in neither wing. Booked thru Fresh Tracks Canada, another big mistake. The continental breakfast was pathetic
