Excellent. We couldn't have asked for a more charming location and building. This property was a wreck when the owner bought it, and it has been so well restored that it is difficult to believe it has not always been so well cared for. Very professional and efficient team, since the owner and staff have more than one property to look after, but still very friendly service. Great attention to detail in all areas, and very comfortable and homey-feeling. Breakfast was a substantial continental (delicious baked goods), and served in the main building a few steps away. The kitchen staff were wonderfully helpful packing up a breakfast for my teen-age son who had slept through. They couldn't have been nicer.

We are prejudiced having stayed at the Campbell house many times. As nearly always in Newfoundland the rooms are squeaky clean, adaquate in size, and quiet at night. This house is a historic residence and very interesting place. But the best are the hosts Tineke and Marieke Gow and their wonderful staff. They will make your stay most memorable. Lots to do in Trinity and surroundings including the hiking trails and the Random Passage set.
Make reservations early and be sure to take in a play at the theatre.

Room Tip: Reserve early.

Our group of 4 people had this charming 150-year-old house all to ourselves for the night, since the people who reserved the other room were no-shows. It was fantastic. We had a large double room for the couple in our group, and two small but cozy attic lofts for the two other members. We also got full access to the parlour and sitting room areas downstairs, with a fireplace and all sorts of charming and authentic touches - antique furniture, old books, even a fiddle. But the owners have done a marvelous job of adding modern conveniences to the property while still keeping it true to its charm and style. There's a DVD player, modern bathrooms, a refrigerator, even WiFi. We loved our trip back in time, and the hospitality was wonderful. It was a little bit expensive compared to other B&Bs in the area, but not outrageously so. And the breakfast at the Twine Loft was excellent.

The setting was gorgeous...... nestled in an enchanting valley. The accommodations, a wonderfully restored 1840 Irish cottage that featured all the modern amenities we could wish for. The bathrooms were sparkling clean, the bedding crisp, cozy and comfortable. The view from every window was breathtaking. The many, meandering gardens were bursting with fragrant roses, lupines, irises and forget me knots at every turn. Our hosts, Tineke Gow, her daughter plus all the staff were friendly, very attentive and extremely knowledgeable and proud of their village. This stop at Trinity was the highlight of our holiday...... a little peace/piece of heaven on earth!

Second stop on our driving tour of Newfoundland. Used lonely planet Canada & 2011 map & guide book for Newfoundland Labrador to map our trip. Spent a couple of nights booking B&B's, just under 2 months ahead of time & found it hard to get the first choice. We found all B&B's or Inn's that were en-suites, but didn't get all our first choices.
Here in Trinity we booked at Campbell House one room en-suite & one room with kitchen & private bathroom included, this was the most expensive of all the B&B's we stayed at. Nice room very comfortable be, we had the kitchen & private bathroom, everything you would need in the cupboards, fridge stove & microwave available. Breakfast here was also included, choice of cereal, muffins, yogurt, milk, juice, coffee & tea, more of a continental breakfast, and a breakfast menu is available at an extra cost. We also booked their Twine Loft dinner experience, it is a little different & a little costly, preorder for your choice of entres & starters, we started the ordering a bottle of wine with supper here.
Took a walking tour of the town, they have guides for a cost. Checked out a church, very impressive inside, wandered around & found the Dock Restaurant on the habour front that was also a store & museum headed there for supper that night, first lobster of the trip excellent. Kept with tradition and ordered a bottle of wine with supper.
During the walk-about we were invited to the Canada Day celebration at the post office were we enjoyed a short speech from the mayor, Canadian flag raising, little disappointed it was laying on the ground before it was raised. We listened as they sang the Newfoundland anthem & then we joined in on the Canadian anthem, then were invited for a hot dog, pop & cake. Noted on our walk that there are many boats on dryland, stored in the back or side yard of the owners home, so sad to see. Closing the fisheries sent many of the younger men off to Fort McMurray, they find a job, a girlfriend & rarely come home. This town is now a village which is now a part of a bight, which is a group of villages that have joined together for schools, hospitals etc. Trinity goes from a village of 300 people during the tourist season down to 30 families for the winter. Elderly if they have families there for the winter & young families have moved to town (St. John's).
Went to do the Skerwink Trail, which is a 5.3km trail that sends you inland & up to the top for cliff side walk. Easy trail at first then you start the up hill stair climb so if you have issues with stairs this is not the walk for you. Saw beautiful scenery, thought maybe we'd see a moose, no such luck, but we did see a couple of whales so cool. Got lots of pictures during this walk, not completely comfortable with being so close to the edge at times. Lots of look-out points. Another cool & foggy & drizzly day. But fun.
Found the town bar, Rocky's Place, enjoyable friendly bartender. We just asked her anything that we could think of about the area and she answered. Don't be afraid to ask anyone in Newfoundland just about anything, everyone is very friendly. Tourism is going strong in Newfoundland, met lots of people from other provinces but more from Ontario.

Room Tip: Remember to book your B&B or Inn at least 2 months ahead of time as you may not get your first choice.
