We operate our Makik Sustainability Initiative whereby we strive to reduce our environmental impact and promote sustainability, while also encouraging education and personal health and wellness. Makik is the Inuttitut word meaning “to rise, to stand up” – We rise to the challenge to protect our environment + stand up as a leader for the well-being of our people.

We pledge to:

  • Reduce waste and increase recycling.

  • Engage service providers to increase usage of environmentally-friendly products and supplies.
  • Monitor and review our environmental performance on an ongoing basis with a focus on continuous improvement.

We seek to conserve natural resources through the responsible use of energy, water and materials, while also maintaining the quality of service expected by our guests. The policy is reviewed annually by a committee led by our Energy and Innovation Specialist.

Our room was a king suite and it was incredibly clean and spacious. The shower was amazing – stand up stall with tons of different jets and even a seat! Complimentary breakfast was perfect for our needs – bagels, cereal, coffee, juice, etc.

I was impressed from the moment I walked into the building. The lobby was bright and welcoming. The breakfast area looked newly renovated with stainless steel appliances.

The staff are great! The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Conveniently located. Tasty locally baked fresh breads, muffins and the Royal’s very own coffee blend is a great starter to the day. An easy place to stay for business or pleasure!!!!

My business travels take me to Happy Valley Goose Bay quite often throughout the year. The Royal Inn & Suites is my preferred choice of stay…The suites are extremely clean and include many amenities.

Very modern and clean accommodations in a central location. The suites were lovely, large kitchenettes, multiple bedrooms, sofa beds etc. Staff was super helpful. Managed to squeeze me into a blocked schedule.

My father and I stayed here on a drive on the Trans-Labrador Highway in May 2016. we were very pleased with our room: a large executive guest room with two beds and a refrigerator, on the ground floor.

All the staff are very helpful. I had a standard room. It was clean, warm and comfortable and I was surprised to find some nice little extras such as a coffee machine, a toaster and a table chairs.

We toured 5 provinces (8000 km) in 14 days including our main goal of driving around Labrador. Of all the hotels we stayed in this was the best!
