Inn is being updated in off/seasons. Outside has been done and is great with decks and looks modern inside due to be done this winter we were told. Rooms are large with great view out to sea. Plenty of seating in room. The restaurant was good. We had dinner and breakfast and both were excellent. Would recommend to anyone.

A very friendly welcome on a cold stormy evening. Lovely room with a great view of the ocean and it was so cozy to be warm listening to the sounds of the ocean. We enjoyed our one night stay and would definitely stay here again.

We loved the location and having a view that looked out to the ocean. The room was very clean. We didn't really need an efficiency but appreciated the extra room. Comfortable bed and sleep. Would love to stay longer.

Have stayed at the Spindrift in Musgrave Harbour on several occasions now- the cabins are very clean and comfortable. The staff are helpful to a fault. The dining room, located in the motel, is second to none. The room is well appointed with lots of NL artwork. The food is all homemade. The fish and chips is absolutely the best. If you have any room left afterwards, the desserts are a real treat. Make the Spindrift a destination on your next trip to the Bonavista North area.

Stayed at cabins owned by Spindrift. Lovely, clean, well equipped. Close to a very beautiful beach. Cabin had two bedrooms, washer and dryer. Small functional kitchen. Double bed in each bedroom.

My hubby and I enjoyed our stay at the Spindrift Inn. It was phenomenal in all aspects. The rooms are spacious, bright and clean. Plus they are efficiency units that supports budget friendly travel. The on site restaurant serves fabulous freshly cooked food, all so tasty and traditional NL food....all 5*+ in flavour, servings and wait times. My husband loved the Roadhouse Burger....several times. 😁 I enjoyed the cod au gratin meal, the beautiful breakfasts, and the fish n chips is to die for. The staff is the best of all of it. They are pleasant, friendly, accommodating and the best at their jobs. I'll be back! BTW.....the sunsets are free but the view is priceless!

We stayed here for a couple of nights while exploring the Musgrave Harbour area. The Inn is under renovation so only one half was open. Our room was much more rustic than those shown on the website - wood paneling and a bit dreary and dated. It did seem clean and there was a new fridge and tv, and bathroom was nice. Wifi didn’t work. Guests checked in above us and we could hear every footstep and our lights flickered when they walked. The incredible view of the ocean was obscured by scaffolding. But it is an amazing location and we loved our walks behind the Inn along the beach. Hopefully the current renovations will improve things a bit.

we stayed in Musgrave Hr. on the last night of our 3 night weekend (4 women). The beaches were beautiful! We stayed in a ground level suite at the Spindrift by the sea. The room was clean, a little dated but it was only an overnight stay. The beds were a double and a super single but we had everything we needed. The price was very reasonable! There is a restaurant on location and the food was good. They were understaffed (as most places in NL are this particular this year!) so you need to have patience. The lady was lovely and was doing her best to keep up. Spindrift is a great little place for your home base for sleeping and showering when exploring the surrounding areas.

We were a party of nine, 5 people (2 adults, 3 teenagers) and 4 people (2 adults, two 10 year olds) in the Blue and Gold colour Banting Memorial Cabins. The Cabins were great, they were clean and had most everything you needed for a self-catering holiday. The cabins had two bedrooms each. Also has clothes washer and dryer. We had to empty the lint filter in order to dry towels so that’s a tip if you need to use the dryer. Each cabin has a fire pit, and two red wooden chairs. We had camp chairs to supplement for the other people in our party. The kitchen is well-outfitted, and there is little room for improvement. Some shelves in the fridge were not there - which cut down on storage. Needs BBQ-safe grilling utensils. There is a Sunbeam coffee maker, so take filters and ground coffee if you are a coffee drinker. The biggest room for improvement were the mattresses, and the one per person pillows. The mattresses were creaky and the pillows were flat. I would stay again, the staff are helpful, friendly and place was clean- I would take my own pillows lol We had a great holiday here and have a lot of good memories of Musgrave Harbour.

We stayed here for one night and I'm glad it was only one. It didn't feel truly clean. The carpet felt gritty, there was some mystery drops on the heater, one of the main lights didn't work, the few channels on the TV were mostly full of static (not a big deal but still). The walls were paper thin and we could hear more than we really wanted from the couple next door. It also sounded like elephants above us. Outside our door was a big bucket for cigarette butts. People in other rooms seemed to think this corner was a good place to congregate and smoke and socialize. It was manageable for a night but would definitely look elsewhere next time.
