“A great modern house with an absolutely wonderful hostess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

My wife and I recently stayed in Twillingate at the Iceberg B&B while touring Newfoundland. It was one of our favourite places to stay in Newfoundland. The suite was huge with a separate sitting area where you could unwind after a long day of iceberg watching (you could also look out of the ample windows to see tons of icebergs as well).

Thelma is a wonderful hostess, providing wonderful breakfasts and making sure you left with some tasty treats for snacks if you had a full day ahead of you.

We would not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it for anyone else.

You may not be sure what to expect as you approach Iceberg Alley. It's located in a tight little neighborhood typical of coastal villages in Newfoundland. Any questions disappear as soon as you walk in the door.

There are two great stories to tell. One is about Thelma, the owner. The second is the comfortable accommodations. The first story starts when you open the door and meet Thelma. She has a personality as big as all of Newfoundland and an accent as thick as the Peas Soup you'll find at the local restaurants.

You will find that the story of Thelma and the accommodations are inseparable. Thelma built the B&B from scratch to her specifications and as she'll tell you, "I'm fussy". We stayed in a room with a king bed, Jacuzzi, and a very comfortable private bath. I don't know exactly how long Iceberg Alley has been open but everything looks new and is exceptionally clean. The housekeeper knows Thelma is fussy! Later in our stay Thelma told us story about finding bed sheets locally. She wanted high thread count cotton sheets that would be comfortable and last through a year of washing. The sales person tried to explain she could buy several sets of the cheaper sheets for the price of high thread count cotton. She said he was forgetting about the comfort, "take a set home and see how your wife likes the comfort". This level of consideration went into every choice she made in putting every piece together.

There is huge hot tub open from 11:am to 9:pm, the rest of the time it's going through multiple cleaning cycles so that it's clean enough for Thelma!

All this "fussy talk" may bring to mind a prissy old dragon lady. Think instead of a favorite relative wanting you to have the time of your life.

Where should we eat? There is a binder in the living room with the menus of the local eateries. Want a table but they don't take reservations, no problem. Thelma calls the hostess, "hi my love, gimme a call when the table by the window opens, I've got four I'll send right over". Want to go on a boat tour of the icebergs? Thelma knows the right person on the right boat to make sure you have the best adventure.

Make your reservations well ahead of time, this B&B is frequently full. During our stay the phone rang many times. Even though this B&B was full Thelma used her local connections to find a room for the caller.

Stay here and join the family!

This is an amazing B&B. Very spacious room, spotlessly clean, warm and inviting public area and a fantastic hostess. The 'excellent' ratings on tripAdvisor are well deserved. Do yourself and book here if you're going to be in Twillingate!!

This B & B is just beautiful. Probably the best in the area. Spotlessly clean, wonderful décor, the rooms are fantastic. We had a room with a king bed and a Jacuzzi tub. We were there for 3 nights and each morning we had a different delicious breakfast prepared by the owner/hostess, Thelma and her lovely mother. Thelma was a wealth of information, had tons of suggestions and booked whatever you wanted to do. Thelma and her Mum were so friendly and warm that it was not unusual to find all the guest mingling in the common area. Thelma also has some lovely jewelry and crafts that you can also purchase, which I did as gifts for relatives. The B & B is well situated in the village. Great place, happy we were able to meet Thelma and her Mum and enjoyed our stay with them immensely.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms there!

One of the greatest things about rural Newfoundland is its people and Thelma is one of those great people. She loves her island and shares it with enthusiasm. Staying at her B & B is a wonderful experience and when you leave you feel like you are leaving family behind. I would highly recommend staying there.

We stayed here in June 2014 and were very pleased with the bedrooms and common areas. What made the whole place exceptional was the effort put in by the owner, Thelma, to make us feel at home. She booked trips fro us, she found out what was happening at our next port of call and invited us to treat the common areas as if they were our own home. And she meant it! Breakfast is traditional and plentiful. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Newfoundland

Room Tip: Only four rooms and all equally good

This B & B has been well thought out. The rooms are very spacious, well decorated with well appointed ensuite bathrooms. Thelma , the owner and host is extremely hospitable, friendly and helpful. She goes out of her way to make your stay special. Her husband is also very helpful. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful establishment.
