Yes, Darlene and Ken have thought of everything--really. We stayed in the Tablelands Suite in one of the 'over the water' suites. From the claw-toothed tub (perfect after hiking 10 km on rocky paths) to the comfortable bed & pillows to the well-appointed servery to the deck with Adirondack-like comfortable chairs--the suites are worth every penny you pay for them. Although we made our own breakfasts, they do have a breakfast room service available; they also pack lunches for hikes. Darlene knows the 'attractions' people so if you need to change anything (Western Brook Pond, Anchors Aweigh etc.) she is more than willing to call on your behalf. There is a view of Gros Morne Mtn from virtually every suite and one is constantly being entertained by arriving walk-on ferries, a catamaran tour boat or, best of all, Minke whales and the occasional Humpback whale (from the deck!). Gros Morne's Discovery Centre is less than 2 km from the suites (ask for where the path is) and a good place to start all of the Park's explorations. The Tablelands walk happens at 10am every day during the summer and is a short 5km drive away. Thank you again Darlene and Ken for settling in Woody Point and for contributing to making the Park a wonderful, restful and interesting experience.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Seaside Suites is a four-star waterfront accommodation in the quaint, historic seaside village of Woody Point. We are located in the heart of Gros Morne National Park with views of the Tableland Mountains, Gros Morne Mountain and the ocean waters of Bonne Bay. There is nothing more soothing and scenic as the views and sounds of the ocean. We have two properties across the street from each other, over the water and across the street from the water; the Over the Water Building (which IS over the water) is home to the Gros Morne, Tablelands and Lighthouse Suites. The Wharfside Building is newly opened and has the Sandollar and Starfish Suites as well as Seaside Souvenirs and our Seaside Deli & Dairy Bar, located directly across from the town wharf, where you can try fishing, take in the scenic views with your morning coffee, or catch the water taxi to Norris Point for an outing. We have five well appointed suites. The waterfront of Woody Point has recently been designated a Heritage District for its historic significance on the West Coast of Newfoundland and also for its' restoration of the many historic buildings along the water. When you settle in at Seaside Suites, you can stroll and enjoy our quaint, scenic village. Be sure to choose Seaside Suites for your Gros Morne adventure. You won't want to leave! ... more less
