In respect of Hotel North 1, there is nothing here to make one feel happy in Happy Valley-Goose Bay. I had stayed in this hotel in the past and it was passable. This last time, it was substandard. The internet connection didn't work the whole 3 night stay so I couldn't get any work done, the front desk staff lacked any ability to do anything about it and just sat there with "what do you want me to do about it" looks on their faces. They looked bored most of the time. Previous staff were much more friendly. The toilet in the room wasn't screwed to the floor properly (just use your imagination). The restaurant next door was closed due to a fire? although they offered a breakfast shuttle bus to their sister hotel (North 2).The rooms are extremely dated (a bit 70's). Alot of noise early in the a.m. because there are alot of workers getting out on an early start. Finally, the worst was the cold showers every single day.
The only upsides: satellite tv with alot to choose from (but watch it on an smallish old style tv) and the rooms were clean. This hotel is a NOT!
