This was a unique experience in a remodeled former school building. The owner/managers could not have been more helpful in maximizing this adventure for me during my 2-night stay. If you like your hotels with a pool and spa, this is not the place for you. They informed me of the location of stromatolite formations (only found here and in Western Australia) that are the oldest evidence of life on earth. With L'anse aux meadows as a day trip, it is an archaeologists dream.

Donna and her husband were excellent hosts, tour guides and cooks. We stayed for two nights due to a delayed ferry crossing. Make sure to ask Donna directly about her nightly fresh fish offerings. Don't be too concerned about walking into an old gamma school building, it's warm and comfortable on the inside.

Rustic, but not practical

To be fair, if you like rustic, as in a gussied-up camp barracks, then you'll love this place. The positives: service/staff were nice, basic breakfast is included, room clean, nice homemade bread, modern bathroom. The devil is in the details; the whole concept of a retrofitted school is interesting, there are attempts to "cute-ify" with a few deco touches, but the superimposed massive bunkbeds reminded me of mining camps I worked in as a student (I can't imagine how housekeeping staff must hate climbing up those steep ladders to change the bedding!). The tired & worn furnishings are leftovers from the old school (or from a very tacky yard sale), cheap linoleum floors, pillows in plastic wrappers (more hygienic, I guess, but the weird crinkling noise is distracting when trying to sleep). The worst part was the RIDICULOUSLY SLOW wifi- best to not even tell anyone you have it- it took 30 minutes to open my email, and I spent 2.5 hours trying to book my next hotel & ferry, finally gave up, went to a hotel a few kms away & begged to use their wifi (done in 5 minutes); and no, it's not MY laptop. The wifi was stupidly slow, kept disconnecting and crashing, so if you need to have net for family or work , this isn't for you. As for one descriptor as "waterfront", well you can see it in the far distance, but waterfront it is not. For $105 plus taxes, quite frankly, I felt cheated- I know accommodations are scarce in this area, but this place needs to up its game.
