Much of the furniture is old and dated. Beds are comfortable. Rooms were clean. Our maid was very helpful. Service was excellent. Close to airport and everything you need in town. Definitely not fancy but pleasantly surprised.

We had booked 4 nights at this hotel several months in advance of our visit to Gander because we wanted to make sure we were able to get a room with a kitchen. When we arrived they could not accommodate us because "an existing guest had extended their stay via the website" so

We needed to sleep in gander and only was a room in this hotel. It is terrible. You have to make check in in another hotel (half an hour line) there is no lobby, or food or any kind of service and we paid $200 CAD. They are more like appartments, very old and ugly building,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback of your stay with us. We appreciate all feedback positive and negative, as it helps us provide a better experience for our valued guests. My sincere apologies that you encountered some issues during your stay. Yes the Irving West does have more of an apartment feel then a traditional hotel as it was recently renovated to better accommodate guests visiting for longer stays. The property has been renovated from 52 hotel rooms to 26 suites. For this reason the Irving West doesn’t have some of the same amenities you would see at other locations like check in on-site, lobby, etc. The suites consist of one or two bedrooms with adjoining living/kitchen area and are outfitted with full size appliances and we have equipped each suite down to the smaller details, like providing a can opener. With these newly renovated suites the Irving West Hotel is the ideal accommodation for stays of one week, one month, a year or longer. In regards to food the Irving West does have on site “Legends Lounge & Grill” which features a delicious pub style menu. I am sorry that your stay with us wasn’t completely satisfactory but I hope you enjoyed your time in Gander. I hope you see fit to give us another try in the future.

Had a great server Tammy. I had burger fries gravy caesar salad. Didn't like the fake bacon bits in the salad. The fries were great the gravy as well. But the burger lacked taste. Looked good but not great. Good amount of food for the money

We were pleasantly surprised. Checking in at the Albatross was a bit of a strange one & I wouldn't want to walk across with luggage. I loved the space. The rooms contained everything we wanted & needed. It was clean & the bed was comfortable. The meal at the Albatross was
