“Great stay at Castle Landing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

My wife and I stayed at Castle Landing in July. The building was a convent in the past and has been converted into a very comfortable B&B. Our room was spacious and clean. The common areas were well appointed and clean. The continental breakfast was satisfying. We spent a great evening chatting with the operators, both of whom were very knowledgable in travel experiences around the world. Castle Landing is located quite close to the terminal for the North Sydney to Argentia ferry and is also within walking distance to the Castle Hill historic site. We highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: We had the former mother superior's room.

Recently I had the pleasure of staying at Castle Landing. WOW what a beautiful place.

Upon arrival I was greeted by a gracious and friendly hostess who accommodated my simplest requests. This charming lady was very knowledgeable of the tourism industry.

My room was spacious, eloquently decorated and immaculate. The daily Continental Breakfast was ample, quite good, and readily available.

The location of Castle Landing is ideal; it's close to the Argentia Ferry, Castle Hill Historic Site, Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary and only a 1 hour drive from St. John's.

The view was amazing. The fresh ocean air and tranquility of the area was an added bonus.

I hope to stay there again soon.

We spent only one night at Castle Landing during July 2013. AND, we were delighted that we had chosen this Bed and Breakfast to take our Norwegian family to on a quick tour of St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary and that area of our Province. The warm, friendly reception was the first thing we noted; not only did we get a bit of background history of the B &B, but we were given great suggestions as to eating places in the area. The atmosphere is one of authentic hominess; and if the common room with TV and games was not convincing, then the breakfast area surely was! The aroma of the fresh coffee, the plentiful Continental breakfast, and the chatter among guests was as relaxed and comfortable as home can be, while our attentive hostess, Daphne, made sure we had everything and enough of everything we wanted. We were all highly impressed and obviously not just with the clean, tastefully decorated rooms, the comfortable beds, and the abundance of hot water in the shower!
A treat of a retreat--a first-rate B & B!

What a hidden Treasure in Freshwater/Placentia! If you're looking for something a little different away from home Castle Landing is ideal. From the time we walked in we were greeted by a friendly smile and the room was delightful. It was nice staying at a place with such character. We had free wireless, free phone calls and that was a plus for sure.

Room Tip: We had a nice Lake view!

I have stayed at Castle landing on numerous occasions over the past three years and I have found it to be a lovely place to visit. The staff are more than helpful, the rooms are beautifully decorated and above all the beds are very comfortable. I look forward to my next visit soon.

Had terrible stay at Castle Landing ! I stayed 2 nights and couldn't wait to leave! Showers were very very tiny so anyone that has a bit of weight on them like myself, its hard to get a good wash without your elbows bouncing off the walls!!! my 8 yr old got in the shower and said mom how can I wash in this..very bad!! not to mention the old man that wouldn't let the kids watch tv, said he was watching his own shows.and the yelling the old man did at them when they went downstairs...The guys wanted to watch a hockey game said he was watching the Fifth Estate..go figure!! paid 348.00 for two nights and got cereal and toast for breakfast..for that rate for sure we thought we would get bacon, eggs, sausage,etc..not 5 yr old cereal as one kid describes it...they never changed our garbage, asked if we wanted clean towels, or asked if we wanted clean bed sheets.they didn't even want to give us a key to our room so we can lock the door.mold in the shower....the whole weekend we were barred up in the room and walking on eggshells.and being a hockey tournament with other partents and other kids the trip was supposed to be a great one but turned out to be a nightmare...I want a refund!!!..

Room Tip: get a room somewhere else!!
