Shallow Bay Motel & Cabins
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Cow Head
Reviewed 12 August 2017

Stayed here for 3 nights while on tour. We had one of their cabins and it was wonderful. Picnic table on side; two bedrooms, kitchen, living area - everything was clean and spotless. Also, the food at the restaurant was great! Service was great! The owner Darryl made sure to greet us and ask if everything was ok. Laundry room with 3 washers & two dryers. Close within walking to post office and grocery store. Also, went to the Theatre one night. Nice but small gift shop. Everyone was super nice.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the cabins.

Excellent accommodations. If you wish there is an exercise room, pool and sauna. Our bus got into the hotel late and our guide called ahead to make sure there would be food available for us and they are sure we were taken care of. Great Greco pizza and first time having donaire egg rolls which were fantastic. Service was great and everyone is friendly. The room is great with a view of the bay...even though the water level does look pretty low.

We were quite pleased with the room. It had all the amenities we needed.
As for the food it needs a new look at travelers' expectations. This hotel also caters to tour buses and corporate events. Could explain their choice in how they decided to serve in the dining room to control cost.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the bay

The town seems rather isolated, but the motel is a going concern. It is well maintained with friendly staff and a nice restaurant. There is also a live theatre, but you should book in advance, because this is also a place where the charter buses come and tickets quickly sell out.

Shallow Bay Motel & Cabins (we stayed in a cabin for two nights) as part of tour of Newfoundland's northern peninsula and Labrador. The food was very good. The service (in all respects) was exemplary. There is a theater attached to the Motel, and the performances are well worth the money (not much else to do at night in the area). There is also a Post Office and a grocery/booze store in walking distance of the motel. We would recommend this motel.

Room Tip: We recommend a cabin over a room.

The Shallow Bay motel is a great place in a rather remote location. The establishment has a restaurant with great views, a pub, theatre entertainment, pool, gym, shop etc. The rooms are in good condition and clean, unfortunately we had a room facing the parking g area but the sea facing rooms would be spectacular. The food was good. The whole town had a water problem do you needed to get tubs of water from reception. All in I recommend this place, my only disappointment was the very dreary atmosphere in the pub.

We had a cabin for two nights. It was clean and okay, but about time for an update. The motel has many tour buses come through so the restaurant can be packed at times. On the site is the theatre which is very popular.
