“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

We really enjoyed our stay with Keith and Maureen. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to make sure we saw all the highlights of Bonivista in the short time we had. Breakfast was spectacular and the accomodations were excellent. We would highly recommend this B&B.

Our room was the entire second floor - lots of room, big bathroom with both tub and shower and a king size bed! Our hosts (and their delightful little dog) were very welcoming. Keith's brother entertained us over a lovely breakfast - we could have stayed all day to hear the stories about his photography adventures! This is a newer building so very clean and well maintained.

We enjoyed our stay at Puffins Landing B & B. The king size bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean. Maureen adapted the breakfast for me because of my food allergies, and Keith took us to see some awesome rock formations and a secluded area with puffins and other birds.

We enjoyed Bonavista, and we walked from the B & B to the attractions.

Where we come from, it's good manners to take off your shoes at the door of a house.

Wow - we enjoyed the friendliness of Maureen and Keith at the Puffins Landing B&B so much - they are so much fun and full of local lore and storytelling (thanks Keith). We had our 21 year old Granddaughter and her boyfriend with us who wanted to see everything "Newfoundland" - well, Keith took us to a breathtaking hiking location and with the combination of the rugged seacoast, the winds, the tundra, the "feeling" of awesomeness was a memory in itself. Our rooms were very clean and the food was delicious. Nothing but good things to say about our two-night stay at the B&B. It was quite central to a lot of other attractions and walking distance to local stores and gift shops. Thanks Keith and Maureen

We had a two night stay. Great room with king sized bed. Very comfortable. Wonderful breakfast. Keith and Maureen were terrific hosts. Keith not only told great stories but educated us a bit about the area and fishing industry. Keith's generosity extended to taking us to a great hiking path and getting us started. Only caution is that there is a very sweet, quiet dog living at the house, so might want to give thought to booking if you have allergies. Speaking of allergies, our hosts took care in making sure dietary needs or food allergies were not an issue. Would stay here again.

We had the privlege of staying with Keith and Maureen again at their B&B for trip to Bonavista NL.
Not sure why the last post was so harsh with their review. Keith and his wife Maureen are outstanding hosts and couldnt have accomidated us more. I to have dietary restrictions which I would never expect the host to remember. Maureen did remember when I asked she just asked for clarification for what I could have. I appreciated this as I wouldnt want her cooking to go to waste.
However, I personally feel its common courtesy to remove your shoes before entering any home regardless if its a B&B.

I personally love how close it is to the harbour and the local attractions. Sure it's not ocean view but then again we don't care as it was only a short walk or drive to the ocean during our excursions.

Make sure to go for some ice cream down by the lighthouse (dairy king) sure to please your taste buds while you sit by the ocean.
We would definitely stay here a third time when we come back to NL!!

This B&B is located in a small subdivision with no view other than the neighbor's house or the street. The rooms are just big enough for the queen-sized bed, though neat and clean. One reason they are so clean is that guests are not allowed to wear their shoes anywhere in the house, including their room. So, you leave them on the inside landing even when bringing in your suitcases.

Though their website says breakfast can be between 8-9 am, we were told 8 am. Period.

But worst of all, our hosts had planned a trip away during our whole stay, but we were not told this until we arrived at the door. As well, my food allergies were not remembered by Maureen though she assured me they were noted by my reservation. However, she was not making the breakfasts,as she was going away, rather a lady she hired would be coming in. As for guest guidance or chatting, well, no. But, a relative would check in now and then to see if there were any emergencies.

Hardly the B&B experience.

Room Tip: A better choice is the small hotel on the Bonnavista harbour.
