“Friendly staff and delicious food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

The best part about Skipper Ben's is the food and the friendly staff although it is a little expensive ( $22.00 for a main course). We enjoyed a delicious meal of pan fried cod, potatoes and fresh vegetables, cooked to perfection. As we were also looking for a place to spend a couple of nights, we were lucky enough there was a room available. The room was pleasantly decorated, comfortable and clean, but lacked an ensuite, so we had to share a toilet/shower with the other guests. Breakfast was fairly good, with cereal, a poached egg, bacon, toast ,fruit, tea and coffee. There is no sitting area for guests, other than the dining room/restaurant, although there are tables out on the porch, where one can enjoy a glass of wine or beer. There are renovations planned to add ensuites to the guest rooms, which would definitely add to the comfort of this B&B. The location is fantastic, with views of the sea nearby, and a short drive into the pretty village of Brigus.
