“Quite a nice spot”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

This small hotel is next to the fish plant on the waterfront of the town. It is relatively easy to find for visitors to the community.

We found the rooms clean, nicely appointed and spacious. The beds were okay, but the rocking chairs in the room were a nice touch. Bathrooms were basic but functional.

The hotel's amenities include wifi and a restaurant on site. Breakfast is provided with some room rates and includes toast, cereal, juice and coffee.

The hotel was very hot (the heat was going full blast) and the storm windows were still on, so opening the windows and getting a decent breeze (if there had been one) was almost impossible. The air conditioning was not functional so we were given fans. The third floor rooms were extremely hot and several of our party found it difficult to sleep.

We had one difficulty on check out; the hotel staff didn't pass the message from one person to another that one person in our party had cancelled and we were charged for the no show, but this was eventually dealt with. The price per room is perhaps higher than you might find on average for little hotels in the province but it is nice enough to justify the cost.

Room Tip: Face the water.

We stayed here for 3 days during the Make and Break Festival, and rooms were all taken, its good there was one room left since the reservation was cancelled. It was a perfect place to stay, since we're too tired of driving from Trinity and we got a room overlooking the ocean with full moon during our stay. It was such a great delight while watching the full moon from the wide window with fresh air humming our face. The lights flashing from the harbour was a plus, perfect view to behold. The restaurant downstairs served yummy and delicious seafoods like mussels, fresh fish, etc., really fresh.
The staff were very cooperative and polite. The room was decorated with authentic furniture used during the high season of the fishing era. I like the air of cleanliness around the whole room and the smell of clean sheets, its like going back to the heyday of the historical place that is Bonavista. You get what you paid for! Perfect...

The hotel was fully booked the night I wanted to stay here , but I returned for breakfast the next morning, and stayed 3 hours...setting up my computer, using their WiFi, and engaging in conversation with guests, and the friendly wait staff.
They encouraged me to stay the night..... I could not.....but I wanted to.
This hotel has a wonderful waterfront location, fine small pub, and the ambience of a smaller, "period" inn. A new patio/deck is being constructed right beside the water's edge..a perfect place to dine/drink when weather permits.
I will return one day, and stay overnight.

We stayed here for one night recently. The room was good, although not totally sound proof. The restaurant has a good view - we had dinner (good) and breakfast (average). Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and spacious. Very close to Cape Bonavista and Dungeon provincial park. Priced relatively higher compared to other properties.

This place was recommended to us as the best place to eat in Bonavista and a place where they would know what was gluten free that I could order. The food was very good but the wait staff were not very helpful. I had to figure out the gluten free stuff myself. However, they do have a great view of the harbour.

We loved our room and wished we stayed longer than for one night...It is so close to everything in the town and to attractions such as the lighthouse and Dungeon Provincial Park. The room was clean and comfortable. There is wi-fi as well.

The Building is historic but they have done a rather poor renovation to add the rooms which lack quality finishings. The industrial type carpet in our room was stained. They were doing construction around the hotel and it felt like we were staying in the middle of a construction site. While it is on the water it is surrounded by barren dirt and it has no connection to the water. I think they might be building a boardwalk but the hotel needs a deck and places outside for the guests to go.
The restaurant was adequate. They had three nice lobsters in the tank and it was on the menu but I was told the owner had spoken for these and since the season had closed some time before there was no way to have the lobster on the menu. The menu was otherwise mostly fish house fried stuff.
The historic buildings next door were interesting to tour and the staff was helpful and friendly but otherwise Bonavista has not set itself up very well to cater to tourists as there is no real waterfront or places to walk.

Room Tip: You definitely want to be facing the harbour.
