Armstrong's Suites
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We stayed at Armstrong's Bed and Breakfast for two nights. I was initially a little taken back when we arrived as the property is not located in a particularly pretty spot, with a school bus yard right next door. While there is an ensuite in each room, it is a sink and toilet only and the shower is in a seperate bathroom and is shared. However, the rooms and shared shower were immaculately clean and luckily for us, there was never an issue with waiting for our turn to use the shower. The hosts, Anita and Louis were great, and the breakfasts were the best of our entire trip- practically a buffet every morning, including oatmeal, bacon, eggs, toutons one morning and french toast another. Anita also provides delicious homebaked breads and muffins to nibble on in the evening along with cups of tea. I would definitely stay here again if we were in the Witless Bay
area.

Room Tip: Efficiency suites are also available.

No cats. No carpets. Very clean! All critical for those of us with extreme allergies. Just next door to Canada's Puffin capital and an easy drive into St. John's. Friendly accomodating hosts. Sleep was cut a little bit short due to the early morning rise of some power line workers next door. Overall, a nice place to stay.

Lodging rates in St. John's are insane, so my wife and I looked for something more reasonable in the immediate area. We found it at Armstrong's. We stayed four nights in a housekeeping unit (you cook your own meals) and one night in a B&B room to which we moved because the other unit had already been booked. We paid $350 plus tax for the five nights. We were very pleased. The accommodations were perfectly clean and well furnished. Anita is a great hostess and very helpful -- even has a phone plan with unlimited minutes, so guests can call anywhere in Canada or the US for free. Wi-fi worked fine too. Location is about 25 minutes south of downtown St. John's (you can also go into the city by way of Cape Spear nearby). It is just a few minutes from the whale watch in Bay Bulls and a convenient starting point if you are going south on the Irish Loop. Just north of Armstrong's is Route 13, a straight shot west to the Trans Canada. We are pleased to recommend Armstrong's.

First off, the B and B does not look over the bay. You will have to go elsewhere for that. There is a little hill that you can hike to, which has a wonderful view of the area and the bay, but you cannot see the bay from your room or the B and B, for that matter. Hence, they are less expensive, I presume, than the B and Bs which do look over the bay.

Hospitality was good. The room was clean, although a little tight. There were snacks and a nice breakfast in the morning.

I just returned from a 10 day trip to Newfoundland. I stayed all 10 days at Armstrong's, in an efficiency unit that was complete with a large full bathroom, full sized stove, fridge, coffee maker, kettle, microwave, kitchen table and chairs, queen sized bed, futon, TV and wireless internet. Everything you could possibly need was there. Laundry facilities are a short trip south, and a grocery store is about 5 minutes to the north. It's a super easy drive down from St. John's. Not just easy but beautiful, which I guess goes without saying in Newfoundland. The room was quiet and very comfortable. I felt like I was at home-away-from-home.

When I arrived Mrs. Armstrong showed me to my unit and gave me several ideas on places to go and things to see. There is a mountain/giant rock about a 10 minute walk from Armstrong's B&B across the road. Mrs. Armstrong told me it's the best view around - and she was right. Absolutely breathtaking. You have a view for miles in every direction. A clear view of the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve - an island where 200,000 Puffins make their summer homes.

The location of Armstrong's is ideal. Although it's not right on the ocean, it's very close. It's easy to get to Cape Broyle (about 20 minutes) for the Sea Kayaking (whales everywhere), a 5 minute drive to Bay Bulls for another whale/puffin tour, about 30 minutes to St. John's if you need to go to the "city". It's also right on the spot to cut over to Placentia and Cape St. Mary's Ecological Bird Sanctuary (which is a must to see). The East Coast Trail has enterances nearby and that offers some great hiking, as well as that 10 minute walk to the top of an amazing hill.

I was invited in for breakfast one morning and it was absolutely delicious.

I would recommend Armstrong's to anyone going to Newfoundland.

My husband and I travelled to Newfoundland in June, 2008. We had made reservations with Louie months in advance - his wife Anita, followed up with me regularly and sent me a lot of great travel tips and ideas for the trip. When we got the Airport, our rental car was not available, so Anita and Louie, actually came out to St.John's and picked us up. We knew then, that we were in good hands. They welcomed us into their home for evening tea and blue berry muffins - Anita's specialty. We stayed in their suites for 4 nights while we travelled around the Irish Loop Drive. The suite was great, it was very clean, it was fully accessible and had everything we needed to feel like home. I can not say enough great things about Anita and Louie's Hospitality . Even though we stayed in the suites, we had the option to join other guests in the B&B for breakfast - the breakfast was a traditional homecooked Newfoundland breakfast and it was great!! You will feel like you've know Anita and Louie forever, they will make you feel like you're their family!

I recently had the opportunity to visit Armstrong's B&B in Witless Bay, Newfoundland. I originally found Armstrong's through a bed and breakfast web site. I called to see if a room was available for a two night stay and Anita, the owner, told me that the room was booked BUT she had an efficiency unit available, so I took it. When we arrived at Armstrong's it was prior to 11 a.m. and so the efficiency had not been cleaned. We were told what to see in the area and given some brochures about sightseeing tours that were nearby. We went whale watching with a nearby company, a 2.5 hour tour that was reall good. Once we were able to check in we were given our choice of units as there were 2 available. Both rooms had 2 beds, a fridge, microwave, full bathroom. One unit had a full sized stove while the other had a toaster oven. I chose the unit with the full sized stove. The unit was nicely equipped with sugar, tea, coffee, dish soap, tea towels, bath towels and several different toiletries. There was also a propane b.b.q. for use. The beds were a queen and a twin, both were very comfortable. The room also had a futon. We had such a peaceful sleep the first night that we stayed for 3 nights instead of 2. We had stayed at a regular B&B as well as a small (4 room) motel on this trip. I wish we had of booked Armstrong's for the entire time it was such a nice and friendly place to stay. Anita also has a brand new unit that will sleep 6. It has 2 bedrooms and a futon, a separate kitchen and living room.
