This review is for the motel rooms. This is not a luxury or resort property. It is basic, functional, with good attentive service. Location is in Cow Head on the north side of Gros Morne National Park. Its location is just 15 minutes north of the parking lot for the Western Brook Pond trail. Rooms on the west side of the hotel overlook Cow Bay. Stairs from the hotel lead to the beach. So the setting is really attractive. The room was basic, but spotlessly clean. Furnishings were limited to a desk and small table. Lighting was fair, with no light at the desk. Mattress was extremely soft. Heating was with electric floor heaters, which had no temperature settings--just a dial. So adjusting the temperature in the room was a challenge. Soundproofing was poor--hope for quiet neighbors. Window opens. Some second floor rooms have just one access route--which could be a serious hazard if there was a fire. Hotel has a restaurant (not many other choices for food in Cow Bay). There is no traffic noise since Cow Bay is located a short distance to the west of the main highway, which bypasses the town. Gros Morne Theatre Festival office is adjacent.
