“Beautiful stop along the way!”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My boyfriend and I stopped in Brigus on our way through the East coast of Newfounland en route to St. Pierre et Miquelon. The Brittoner was a truly wonderful surprise, nestled in the landscape of steep hills rising out of the crystal clear bay and surrounded by other beautiful and colorful saltbox houses similarly situated. The small roads and occasional gardens, dotted by beautifully preserved historic houses reminded us of Nantucket, before everyone moved in! Our hosts were lovely - calling ahead to a restaurant in Cupid to ask them to stay open because of our late arrival. We only wish we could have spent more time there!

We very much enjoyed our 2 days in this pretty village with pleasant walking paths, a stone lined brook, two good cafes, and several historical sites. Betty was a good host and very knowledgeable. The room was fine and the bed comfortable. We would have liked to have had a TV in the room. Having an internet connection was good.

Good breakfasts. Tea offered in the afternoon - unexpectedly but very welcome.

We returned from the 'rock' just over a week ago and amongst many pleasant experiences was our visit to Brigus and surrounding area. We stayed at the Brittoner and had the pleasure of visiting with Betty upon our return from sightseeing in the evenings. Being a bit tired of fish and chips, Betty called a nearby B&B to ensure there was room for us to go there for dinner. What a delightful B&B offering a fantastic meal - fine dining in a small town! Betty's breakfasts were awesome and her knowledge of the area helped us decide where to go and what to do.

We also loved the cleanliness of the place, it really did feel a bit like home. Betty makes this B&B and we hope that she continues to enjoy life whatever she chooses to do. Also a wonderful town and its people to discover on a walking tour.

The Brittoner is a very comfortable B&B with exceptional service. Our room was clean and comfortable. In addition to a great home-cooked breakfast, the owner also offered us tea and snacks on our arrival. The back yard is a comfortable location for surveying the view of the village.

Our host provided information about the local area. Brigus is a lovely Newfoundland village and our stroll around the village was very scenic.

One small note: if arriving in the evening to the B&B, visitors need to be warned that there is limited restaurant service in the area late in the day.

We spent one night at the Brittoner, but decided not to stay longer as the only room available was the Loft...hadn't realized when I booked that this meant a space at the top of the stairs, with no door and open to the hallway below! Absolutely no privacey, we even had another guest wander up the stairs while we were resting! The beds were uncomfortable and the ceilings were very low and sloping, so wouldn't recommend this room to anyone over 5'4"! I was surprised that this room was $90.00, given its shortcomings. That said, Betty was lovely, and the breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the Loft room.

Granny B is such a gracious and lovely hostess, it's like staying at Grandma's!! She is a source of information on all things Brigus, and the surrounding areas as well. And who else, but granny, would give you your choice of cereal at breakfast, as well as making sure you have gluten free toast, pancakes, and muffins, for breakfast!! Thanks for making our stay a very enjoyable one, Granny B!!

We visited Newfoundland in July 2010 and drove to Brigus for a visit and stayed two nights. We stayed in the Brittoner B&B. All we have to say is Betty, the owner, is very friendly; cooked us excellent breakfasts (two different ones in two mornings). The B&B has a beautiful backyard facing a lake. The only comment is the house is a bit old thus can't expect too much. We would definitely love to go back if we visit Brigus again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! [Note that my visit was July 2010; but the website only allows after May 2011 here!!!!!!!]
