“Beautiful!”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

After several days in St John's we were looking to get away from the city. Friends recommened Trinity and the Artisan Inn in particular. From the first phone call to arrange a reservation to checking out, the staff were accommodating, friendly and provided excellent service in all areas. The meals served were world class. Our suite was cozy and comfortable with all the amenities we needed. Tineke made suggestions on acitivities during out stay that made the most of our time. Trinity is a very peaceful place and we could feel ourselves slowing down the longer we stayed. Our trip ended all too soon. Thank you very much to Tineke and all of the staff for a wonderful break. We'll be back one day!

We were visiting Newfoundland early September 2012 and ran across this slice of heaven while on our way to Bonavista. The rooms, the food, the staff - there is no end to the wonderful service and friendly people here. The gourmet meals and wine pairings were the best we had in Newfoundland and the special care taken to ensure my wife had gluten free meals was wonderful. Thank you for a memorable stay.

Trinity & The Artisan Inn are a perfect pairing - the attention to historical detail and friendly professional staff and hands on owners make it a real treasure. Their wine pairings and food are exceptional for that area as well.

A wonderful spot to rest ones soul in a true historical setting while taking in all there is in that breath taking area of NL

We were here for three nights and will return if we ever again visit Trinity. Arrived late afternoon and the sun's declining rays afforded perfect lighting for shots off the Inn's waterside deck. Evening dinner offers a choice of meat or seafood. We had lamb shank one night and coq au vin another night, both expertly prepared (as was a pate consisting of half-smoked and half-fresh Atlantic Salmon). Good continental breakfast that could be expanded to include hearty bacon and eggs. Rooms were clean and comfortable and in walking distance of shops and restaurants in town.

We ate at the Artisan Inn during our stay in Trinity. Food was excellent. Fish wash cooked to perfection. My wife had lamb which she also enjoyed but she considered the portions to be a bit too large.

It was unusually hot in Trinity during our visit so we were lucky to be seated near a window so we could enjoy the night breeze coming off the marina.

Room Tip: We did not stay at the Artisan Inn. We only at the restaurant.

My husband and I stayed here three nights in the Studio Suite and we loved it. Trinity is gorgeous! We saw live theater twice and heard great live music. The town is postcard pretty. The inn is run by a very friendly woman Tinneke, and her staff are amazing. Everyone went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. The Inn had a restaurant that serves outstanding 4 course meals for a set price. Do yourself a favour and book reservations here while in Trinity. We would not hesitate to go back...loved every minute of it!!!

Recipients of a gift certificate from our daughter, my wife and I were eager to experience the highly recommended Artisan Inn.

On arrival, we were welcomed by staff in a way that put one immediately at ease.
Dinner at the Twine Loft......wow! A classy dining experience in a "right at home" atmosphere.

We retired to our 19th century, fully appointed room, wondering what the continental breakfast would be like. We need not have been concerned, for once again these folks went beyond, with what could be called a "colossal" breakfast.
We are looking forward to a repeat visit for sure!
