Our room was very nice with just enough space to be manageable - not super roomy but enough to be practical. Very comfortable bed. View from dining area is nice but view from our room was of the driveway. Not a big deal except that it was hot and we wanted the window open for sleeping. Good thing there was... More

The inns breakfast room is right next to the water. Imagine outer delight while enjoying our coffee Starbucks I might add four minke whales were surfacing right in front of us. They were going back and forth for at least an hour. The fact that breakfast including fish cakes and they were able to give me gluten free toast was... More

This lovely inn was renovated beautifully by the previous owners who continue to own the George House Heritage B & B which is up the hill. The room was very comfortable with lots of hot water. Under the new owners, there is no fine dining as there is no chef on the premises. The staff tried their best but there... More

A beautiful building on the water in Dildo, but the price is far too high for what you get. We only stayed one evening, but we never met the host(s) - which is disappointing because that is part of the B&B experience. The breakfast room is very chic, but the breakfast is very small (as opposed to every other bed... More

We stayed at the Inn on one night during our trip. One of the reasons that we booked there was because it said Fine Dining restaurant "on site" as we did not want to go looking for places to eat for a one night stay arriving in the afternoon. I received an email from the Innkeeper the day before arrival... More

We stayed for one night during our trip around Newfoundland and our stay was pleasant enough, but was nothing special. The room was quite large and comfy and had been recently re-carpeted from the looks of it. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was a reasonable size. The breakfast was served in a very nice dining room with a... More

Inn by the Bay in Dildo Newfoundland. The town is unique and quaint. The Inn was outstanding. An unexpected gem in our travels. The staff was great, rooms comfortable and the chowder, cod one evening and lamb the other, fabulous. One of the most memorable experiences was watching a pod of whales right in front of the Inn whilst my... More
