“Loved it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

We (2 couples, family) arrived on Aug. 21 for a 3 day stay. As soon as we met Lorraine, and a couple of hours later, Greg, we felt we were "at home." They and their home are perfect examples of why we are B&B people. As others have said here, the friendly hospitality, great food, good beds, knowledge of local lore and locale are just a few of the things that make it a treat to stay at Spaniard's. Over a glass or 2 of wine in the evenings it becomes pretty obvious that Greg and Lorraine love what they're doing...and they're pretty enthusiastic about what they can do to make it even better. If you're going to be in this part of the world, make sure to spend a night or 2 here. You'll be glad you did.

Room Tip: We had separate rooms but a shared bathroom in "the loft." OK with us because we're fa...

Greg and Lorraine were great hosts. They are very attentive to their guests' needs and are very knowledgeable of the surrounding areas and quick to offer tips to travellers. Spaniard's Room is a very clean and comfortable establishment in a heritage home and we'd stay there again the next time we're in the area. We had French toast and blueberry muffins for breakfast, very very tasty!

Tasty breakfasts--I had French toast and crispy bacon. Feel right at home. Greg is very helpful with travel suggestions. Easy to find. Interesting decor. These people love hosting you. The living room is a good place to visit with other guests.

We found the hosts at The Spaniards a pleasure to meet. The hospitality was as exceptional as the comfort and the food. A great place to stay, good central location on the Avalon Penninsula. Greg and Lorraine were very helpful and knowledgeable regarding the region and the history of their home. Beautiful scenery, walking trails and ocean side beaches.

Room Tip: The Lighthouse is a nice bright room with two beds and large en-suite bathroom.

Staying at the Spaniard's Room is like staying with a friend or family member. The owners offer great warmth and hospitality and excellent local knowledge. They are incredibly accommodating for guests' needs and prepare breakfasts to individual requests (and are very happy to work around any dietary restrictions). Book directly for the best deals, and to ensure that you book the room that most suits your individual needs. Spaniard's Bay is about a one hour drive from St. John's.

Room Tip: The Lighthouse has two separate beds, plus bathroom and can easily accommodate three guests. The Ca...

Last summer my husband and I had to spend a week in Spaniard's Bay in order to re-roof our property. We found the Spaniard's Room on the internet and booked.

Our stay was spectacular. Greg and Lorraine made us feel incredibly welcome, the food was amazing and flexible (I have food intolerances), the accommodations were terrific and the house itself was very interesting.

We enjoyed the trip so much that I fully intend to stay with Greg and Lorraine again this summer when I visit.

Room Tip: The Captain's Quarters were wonderful for us.

The hospitality and warmth offered by the owners of this historic B & B was top notch. Ask Greg for the history of the house and he will bring to life the family this home sheltered during the golden days of Newfoundland with some history of the community of Spaniard's Bay and Conception Bay added for good measure. The towns of Bay Roberts, Carbonear and the gorgeous town of Brigus are closeby. It is also a short distance for any sightseeing on the Avalon Peninsula.

The accommodations were outstanding, with a delicious breakfast served up with antidotes of the couple’s discoveries of descendants of the original family and building techniques discovered whilst restoring the house to its original grandeur. The views from our room of the ocean and the picturesque town and neighbourhood were lovely.

I have stayed in many B & B’s in Newfoundland when returning to my native land but visiting this house and the two amiable people caring for it felt like returning home to a past long forgotten.
