A magical place to stay with so many lovely touches to make a weary traveler feel welcome. Beautiful situation overlooking the bay. The room was warm and cosy especially on cooler Newfoundland nights. Food excellent and prepared with flair. Breakfasts enough to set us up for the day..Tammy a charming hostess and everyone had great suggestion as to where to... More

Well renovated older house with 6 rooms. Upgrades are modern and relatively new. Premium quality queen beds, friendly staff, good food in their restaurant in the attached 'sunroom' overlooking Trinity Bay. Charming place kept spotlessly clean. Lots of hot water available for showers or bath. Floors creak a bit, so you hear others moving in the house. However, the flat... More

Hello Thanks for the kind review.....glad you enjoyed your stay with us and I certainly apologize for the creaky floors but the Inn was built in 1888 and at times we do guests that are louder than others. If you decide to come back and stay with us I can certainly give you a 10% discount but the rates are... More

This was return visit for us to Inn By the Bay. It is an excellent BnB. We took in the gourmet dinner in the evening as well and it was well worth it. Great Food. Great Staff. Great BnB. I will return again. Thanks Colleen, Karen, Tammy, Steve for making our stay enjoyable.

Had no plans to sop for Dinner in Dildo but saw this place - they had table so we took it - it was great. Smaller restaurant geared towards the guests but many tables so give it try. We both had specials and that did not disappoint. Service was great and the Inn guests seemed to be impressed by their... More

Received a very warm welcome from Colleen, who very kindly gave as an upgrade to a larger room, which was lovely, due to unexpected availability. We went out for dinner to the Dildo Dory Grill, about 10 minutes' walk away, during which time there was a sudden rainstorm. Colleen and Karen drove out to find us to give us a... More

Spent a couple of days in Dildo with our RV. Friends recommended the Inn By The Bay as THE place for meals in town and they were absolutely right. The first thing we noticed is that the dining room has amazing views of the bay. The owners, Colleen & Karen, were wonderful, pointing out whales and seals as they appeared... More

Planned on staying here for one night, ended up staying for two. Food was great the hospitality was even better (Karen, Colleen, Tammy & Steve) and the whales in the bay were a bonus. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay if you want an authentic Newfoundland experience.

The room was small and very hot, but I guess we hit it on the hottest day of the year. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was very good. Able to see whales breach in the bay. Lovely group of lupines behind B&B for pics.Did not eat here for supper, very pricey.

I stayed out here for a wedding and loved the location. Great rooms, amazing breakfast and ideally located for our stay. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived really late and they made sure we were looked after, so a big thank you to the staff!
