Shallow Bay Motel & Cabins

Reviewed 28 August 2016

We stayed in a oceanview room in one of the extra buildings and it was clean and spacious. The restaurant in the hotel was decent with a lot of options. The staff at the restaurant and at the front desk were friendly and helpful. It was a great location to explore the area from.

We managed to get the last room here in their B and B across the road. They gave us seniors rate and was a great price for a comfortable room. The rate included a good breakfast in their large restaurant

The room was clean and the bathroom was clean which is very important. The staff were number one in my books. Really friendly and would do anything for you. We stayed in the units across the street so had a few stairs to climb. Next time I would like to stay in the main hotel.

This is the only "hotel" in Cow Head. We had not intended to stay here but due to a car problem we needed a room at the last minute and I got lucky to get a room here. We stayed in one of the cottages, it was a bit tired and old. Nice to have a kitchen and fridge. Got my car problem sorted out and off we went. Made our own meal using the kitchen since I had heard that the restaurant was less than ideal. We had stayed for several nights at the Seabreeze B&B around the corner from the motel and it was day and night.

For less money we got far better service and far better quality. I found the desk staff friendly enough but the person who checked us in seemed "odd", can't say why.

Hotel is right on Shallow Bay beach so view is great. Rooms are sparkling clean and as we had ocean view--our room was bright with a wide view. Windows can open so you can hear waves on beach. Wonderful. Staff all very friendly and accommodating. Rooms have bar fridge, coffee maker but free wifi is slow--probably maxed out as hotel is full. Shallow Bay Hotel is located central to many local sights. We will stay again.

Room Tip: Some rooms on second floor have ocean view. Some first floor rooms can be accessed from the parking...

Spent 2 night here - one in a standard motel-like room and another in a 2 bedroom cabin. Both very good. It is - as someone has said already - the only game in town. Many tour bus groups come here and are an obvious priority for the owners. This gives rise to sloppiness in the restaurant where many dinners are made and which are of only mediocre quality. The breakfasts are OK. BUT this place is central to Gros Morne and its many attractions so should not be overlooked!
