        • Older travelers
          10.0

          The staff were friendly and accomodating. Our room was very clean and the bed, well, I slept like a baby. So very convenient when coming off the Port-Aux-Basque Ferry and only a short trip to the Cabot Trail.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Location, very near ferry to Newfoundland

          Slovenly staff, smell in lobby, smell in corridor, smell in bedroom; poor condition of bathroom; no amenities in bathroom; far too little offered for the price

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Location near NL ferry Buffet breakfast

          Too hard to find at 2:00A.M. No visible signage from TCH.

        • Group of friends
          7.4

          It was a comfortable room. The bathroom was spotless. We needed extra towels and only had to ask. They were delivered promptly. The staff was very friendly.

          The only thing that I wasn"t pleased with was the meal in the hotel diningroom. I ordered chicken stirfry. I expected chicken and vegetables cooked on the grill. What I received was chicken and vegetables that appeared to have been from taken from the freezer and heated up in a microwave on a bed of white rice. No flavoring at all and soggy. I didnt complain because I dont like to make a scene but it was $16.00 plus tax that was not well spent. However our waitress did a great job and was very friendly.

          Just to take ferry boat

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          It's proximity to the Newfoundland ferry. We arrived at the hotel at approximately 2:00 am, very tired and ready for some sleep. A very nice young man checked us in quickly and efficiently and we were on our way to our room.

          The hotel needs some updating but especially the mattresses. I could feel every spring in my back and as a result had a very poor sleep. We had a long day of driving ahead of us and because of the poor sleep it made the day much longer and difficult. At this point, I would only recommend the North Star Inn because of its convenience.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Our rooms where very clean and comfortable, the dinning room was also very clean. We enjoyed our meals and the friendly staff.

          We had rooms 231, 233, and 237, they are above the entrance and we found the noise from the wedding party disturbed us several times as we tried to sleep!

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          It is next to the Ferry terminal!!

          The motion-sensor light in the bathroom! When my wife and I get up in the night, we already know where the toilet is located. We do not need to be rudely awakened by a bright light.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The location next to the ferry was great.

          We didn't get our 4 am wake up call as requested, so we were a little late getting to the ferry....luckily we woke up around 4:30 am.

        • Family with children
          5.0

          Location

          We were there the first day that the restaurant opened and the kitchen was unprepared. Our meals were over priced and included cheap ingredients. There were not enough towels for our family of four in the room. The pool area needs upgrades. The Hot Tub was cold. The internet is still advertising breakfast included and it wasn'T. We were very disappointed in this hotel. I don't think we will recommend to our friends or return again.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          Our stay was comfortable, the staff were friendly, and the location was coveniently close to the Newfoundland ferry.

          Cleanliness was was our main concern. In our opinion, the room needs a complete cleaning especially the bathroom which had dirt in the corners and a dirty tub. The coffee maker was too dirty to use although they sent up a replacement when I called about this.

        • Single
          9.2

          I stayed in the barrier free room with the King Size bed and Wheel Inn Shower. The room was very spacious for getting around with a large bathroom, fridge, sink and coffe maker. The bathroom had a bench with optional hand held shower. Would recommend this room to others requiring these services.

          One thing I would suggest about the bed would be to possibly put some memory foam on the mattress, as I found the mattress hard and not very comfortable. most individuals with mobility problems also have pressure sore issues, and require softer mattress to avoid any skin problems. Other then that, the room worked out great.

        • Family with children

          Children frienly. Price reasonal

          Very close to nl ferry.

        • Family with children

          The reception desk staff was friendly and helpful.

          The basthroom linen was a little shabby

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          It was next to the ferry terminal, which was the reason we booked there. It was very spacious and the king-size bed was really welcome. Having a large bathroom counter was really nice.

          We opened a window because we prefer an open window rather than air conditioning. Having only the fan on made the room feel stuffy.
