I stay here often on my way to work in Labrador or headin' home to St. John's. Always a good meal and comfortable room. It is located near the ferry in Blanc Sablon on the border of Quebec, so they look after a lot o' travellers. The food is good and sometimes there's even a musician to entertain on weekends....

We were 3 of a party of 20. Service was excellent. I had the pork chop platter. The preserves were excellent and there was literally more food than I could finish. The pork chops were cooked perfectly. There was not one complaint from anyone at our table. Some of the meals were pricey. Well worth the price if the meal... More

Atmosphere of the hotel is fine. Rooms are nice and clean. We stayed there a few times prior to this particular experience a few years ago. We had a poor experience that many would probably not run in to. We were travelling to Newfoundland and decided to overnight in LAC as it was close to the ferry for the early... More

When we were there the restaurant was understaffed and overwhelmed. That being said the food was good and reasonably priced. If you are staying at the Motel this is a good place to eat.

We ate at this restaurant four times: two dinners and two breakfasts. The food we had at dinner was very good but the table service was poor. The staff that waited on tables worked hard but seemed very unorganized. Breakfasts were buffet style. On our last morning in Labrador we needed to catch an early ferry. The staff arranged for...

I had a huge portion of lasagna, complete with salad and garlic bread for dinner. Food was delicious; service was okay. The next morning's breakfast was buffet style, but good variety.

A specialty is Artic char which is similar to salmon. It was delicious and the portions were more than ample. The chicken was also tasty. Whatever was ordered was tasty and nicely presented.

We stayed at this inn, like many others, to be close to the ferry connecting Labrador to Newfoundland. The inn was fine, but the restaurant, oh my! We realized a bus tour was staying, and inquired as to the best time to come to dinner. We were assured that it made no difference because they can easily accommodate 200 diners.... More

Stayed at the hotel that also had a bus tour staying. The waitresses were rushing around thus the slow service. Food was good, didn't like the buffet breakfast as it was put on for the tour group. Dinner was good Salisbury Steak .
