“Low cost, private and clean”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

For explorers of central Newfoundland and it's beautiful National Parks and. tiny fishing villages, Grenfell Cornerbrook was ideal. The staff were efficient and friendly. The Kitchen was roomy and easy to use . The rooms were comfortable, roomy . The outlook was beautiful. A trip to the local Salvos got us cheap crockery, cutlery and frypan - uni summer accommodation is doesn't provide these. Groceries, alcohol and other services were within short walking distance or a local bus ride away. My experience with uni accommodation worldwide has been good but grenfell was amongthe best.

Room Tip: When staying in uni accommodation, be prepared to provide your own cutlery, cutlery and cooking uten...

My family stayed here for 4 nights. Was like a small apt. Very spacious. There was 4 nice size bedrooms (single bunk size beds with loads of space for your clothes. One and a half baths. Full size kitchen fully equipped except no toaster. Living room space with 2 love seats and cable TV. Not fancy but everything you needed. No room service but if we needed clean towels or toiletries it was available. No air conditioning but fans were offered. My first time here and would most certainly use this facility again if in the area. You pay same price for hotel room and all you get is one room. This unit offered privacy if you wanted to take a nap. No elevators, just step outside your front door. It was convenient and overall great value. Very positive experience.

I spent seven days at a one room residence during July, 2013. The room and bathroom was cleaned. The room came with two shelves, a desk and chair. Fresh towels and sheets were available everyday and the room came with a full size fridge. There was also a microwave available at a guest recreational room. Free internet was available and a telephone for local calling. The site also had a large parking area and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The cost for my stay was $276 which was a stark contrast to the cheapest hotels in the area which would have cost $500 for a room in a run down 2 star hotel with a bar and a $1000 for the next cheapest hotel/motel none of which had a fridge or microwave. The bed was only a single bed but surprisingly comfortable and I sleep well during my stay. This is a great place to stay for anyone visiting the area but if there is a couple you will need to rent twin rooms which shares the fridge and bathroom. At around $530 a week for the two rooms, it is still half the price of a decent motel in the area and you additionally have access to a fridge and microwave. I will be staying there on subsequent visits which due to the low cost of accommodations will be more frequent.

Room Tip: Single and twin rooms are more for average size individuals or couples visiting the area. Families w...

I don,t expect luxury in a Rez but thought that a decent blanket would be standard. Being spring I would not expect to have difficult sleeping due to being cold. A second blanket or at least one decent blanket should be an expectation even in Rez housing.

Thanks for sharing your comments. We are aware that the weather can be cool in the spring in Newfoundland so we keep comforters and thicker blankets for customers that require them. Please next time you stay with us, make sure to ask for an extra blanket. We will be happy to help.

Me and my girlfriend stayed on student residence for 5 nights at the Grenfell campus of Memorial University. The room was very clean although the bathroom was a little bit small. The bed was comfortable, but, again, it was a little bit small. As student, we did get a very good rate and it was really convenient for us because we attended a conference on campus. It was not far away from downtown. I love the place. However, it was a little annoying in the morning because those ladies started to clean rooms at 7.......too early for us!

Stayed here with a group of people for a conference at Sir Wilfred Grenfell University. It is a little difficult to get food on campus (even a snack), but there is a great coffee shop at the foot of the hill and a liquor store/drug store/grocery store a short walk away. If you like to hike, there is a hiking path right on campus. There is a nice children's playground nearby. Parking on campus is easy. The units themselves are clean, with 4 twin size bedrooms. Two bathrooms and a full kitchen with plates, etc. Skimpy on the towels and blankets but you can ask for more. Each bedroom locks individually. Some strange things like no butter knives and no hand drying towels in the bathroom... but ultimately great value for the money.

Room Tip: Rooms in Chalet 3 seemed closer to the Forestry building, and all buildings are connected. A good pl...
