Stayed 2 nights to explore Elliston, Bonavista, Little Catalina, etc to photograph landscapes and the puffins close by. They were very friendly and very knowledgeable on the area and puffins. Great accommodations and hospitality! Other BnB owners told me months prior the colony was active but it wasn't - Doug was the only honest one and I took his advice... More

We had a very enjoyable stay at Butler's B&B in Bonavista. The room was extremely clean and having a fireplace in the room was an added touch especially because the weather was cold and rainy. Hoping to make it back to Bonavista this trip and having another opportunity to enjoy another comfortable night at this welcoming B&B

Made a booking around a week ago with Doug for 3 nights at Elliston Bed and Breakfast, Trinity. Assuming that he is knowledgeable about the area, we sent a polite email just a day before travel, enquiring about transport available for a day trip from Elliston to Trinity during the duration of the stay. This was enough to tick him... More

Thanks to host Doug for making us feel right at home. Like visiting a long-lost yet new-found friend. Doug's local knowledge is unmatched. A living library of local history and folklore. Add Triffy's delicious and generous home-cooked breakfast combined with hilarity and more local stories, and you'll never want to leave. Easy, scenic and short drive to Bonavista. Highly recommended!

My mother and I have stayed at Elliston Bed and Breakfast for two years in a row and have recommended it to others. We have enjoyed host Doug's hospitality and humour along with his excellent knowledge of the area and local attractions. The B&B is very clean, the rooms are comfortable and spacious with a private ensuite in each. Its... More

We had a great stay at this little B&B. The owner Doug lives in the home and he has written histories of the area and a book on Newfoundland's Rhodes scholars. I would have liked to stay longer to learn more about the area. He was also the only person I spoke to on this trip who understands the financial... More

In response to a polite email I sent when looking for a B&B, the owner Doug Cole called me a word that this website will not even allow me to post (the letter [--] followed by [--]) and suggested I have a low IQ and belong in a Salvation Army shelter because I had the audacity to be traveling in...

Ideal for our purposes as a stop-off while doing a root cellar binge. Doug was super-helpful and the facilities were very appropriate with a good lounge area, ample teas and coffees to use ad-lib. Not being keen on air-con we were happy with room 1 that has natural ventilation, it was very quiet and peaceful. Breakfast by 'Triffy' was perfectly... More
