Humpback suite did not reflect the photos online. It was an average room. We paid $400 for the night and expected something more than average.

We booked the Humpback Room for 2 nights for our honeymoon. After a lot of indecisiveness, we chose this one. The pictures online looked amazing. Upon arrival, the beginning of our honeymoon was disappointing as the room wasn’t cleaned from the previous occupant. The used blankets and sheets were all balled up at the bottom of the bed and the garbage overflowing. It took a few tries but my husband reached the owner and she showed up near immediately. She apologized “profusely”, said she was embarrassed, asked us if we wanted wine now or after the room is cleaned, and offered the cleaning fee of $50 to be refunded. We went for a walk while waiting for it to be ready. We ended up coming back and eating our food in our car. Once the room was ready we went inside again. She had brought a basket of extras - which I’m not actually sure was extras. The bottle of wine was miniature. We were extremely disappointed for $665 we expected better. This was our honeymoon and we wanted it to be nice. We liked that the check in and out using the keypad was simple; We liked that they had a microwave, toaster oven, mini fridge, plug in burner, and a frying pan; We liked the hot tub. Their garden pictures are a little outdated as the place just looked overgrown. We read about beaches in the area and misinterpreted a sandy beach

Myself and my boyfriend booked the Right Whale room for a night away and it was amazing! The room was spotless and smelt amazing upon arrival. The utilities were modern splashed with some industrial touches. The room was very economical reserved as well which we loved. We were minutes away from the east coast trail, as well as the private board walk that leads down to the water! The only things we would change was the motion light in the bathroom that would turn off pretty quickly while in the shower, and unfortunately the ceilings were pretty thin so we could hear every foot step from the suite above us, which would be at times kind of loud. Overall it was so fun and we will definitely be coming back :)

I stayed at the whale house in the "right whale""suit & it was a lovely time with a beautiful view. The property is well kept the suits are modern small & cute! Theres a shared firepit(1) & bbq (2) between the 5 suits..where suppose to be promoting social distancing thats hard to do with 1 firepit 5 suits.. I felt like there should of been more expically for the price you pay so one suit had the firepit takin over so we actually just drove to the beach & had our own fire. Upon arrival I noticed over several permanent stains on the bedding clothes.. & I Wasnt impressed the bed was hard.. the bedding was covered in stains. Only dowers was the bed & the 1 firepit! Comon do better!! New bedding/mattress &more firepits!! Other then that we really enjoyed our stay & would deffiently come back for the hot tub suit in the future There was a lovely board walk that lead us to a private board deck over looking the ocean! That is there property I would like to see firepits & seating put down there for us people in the suits to enjoy!*just a suggestion*!! also made reservations for brunch at the fork resturant witch is a short 2 min walk from the suits! The service & food was amazing!! Very nice friendly welcoming staff! & brunch was spectacular!! Deffiently reccomend taking the time to enjoy a meal there during your stay over all it was a great experience & i would highly recommend!!

All the guest house are not like the one pictured. They all don't have hot tubs either. I had a smaller accommodation that was still very nice!

Oh my, Where to start! I wish I could go back there today, haha! Whale House is a hidden gem situated in Mobile, Newfoundland. We were booked in for a regular suite, but decided to upgrade to their biggest one, and MAN. Was it ever worth it. A king sized bed in the middle of a beautifully quiet room. Views from all around. And Amanda, our host was one of the nicest people weve had the pleasure in dealing with! She was absolutely spectacular! We would go back, just on her personality alone! However, in all seriousness, the suite is the bomb! the hot tub and grounds are amazing, and it's the nice place we've ended up staying in Newfoundland yet. The homemade wine, the lovely sheets and pillows, I cant fault a thing. Amanda, we cannot wait to return, and hopefully very soon - Sorry we had to leave early in the morning, but family had to be tended to - Look forward to meeting you again soon! Book this place, guys - Seriously, I cant say enough good about it.
