I wanted to post a more updated review based on my recent experience.
We just completed a 2 week tour of Newfoundland on motorcycles and were making our way to the Argentia ferry when we stopped at The Wilds for the eveing on Friday July 30, 2010. My friends (husband and wife) decided they wanted a room for the evening as we had been camping in tents.
I was contemplating the upcoming rain storm and staying in my tent when a large friendly man (Hey Jeff!) approached me and said that he wouldn't want to be in a tent in this rain, and offered to set me up in one of the meeting rooms ... at no charge!
I was offered every courtesy of a paying guest. I was able to unload my motorcycle at my convenience, my "room" was made for me with full linens, towels etc. I was even made the offer of having my laundry done. Then while having dinner, Jeff and and his wife came by and bought the three of us a couple of rounds of drinks! We had a great time, the staff treated me like family. It was a very nice way to spend my last night on the island.
I found these folks paid close attention to detail and were attentive with their guests. There was an outdoor wedding ceremony planned for the afternoon but due to inclement weather it was a bit touch and go. As the time approached the weather cleared for a short time and the staff made a fantastic effort to setup for the ceremony. Good job folks!
My experience here was exceptional and I hope to return one day with my family.
