The Northern Lights Inn is, from what I’m told by locals and fellow travelers the best of the available options in the L’Anse au Clair/Forteau/L’Anse au Loup area.
The hotel is about 20 minutes from the ferry located in L’Anse au Clair on the main thoroughfare in the community and offers a restaurant and bar as well as a gift shop with local souvenirs. The room itself was clean but not terribly spacious – great for an individual or a couple. It had all the standards so overall a good utility hotel.
Constructive criticism would be that the restaurant which offered a nice evening meal wasn’t open for a hot breakfast which would have been a nice way to start the day on a cold Labrador morning. However, the price of the room did include a complimentary continental breakfast.
Highlight would definitely be the staff, who were genuinely friendly and all smiles at the desk and in the restaurant and once you’ve got the basics covered, that counts for a lot.
