“A highlight of our trip to Newfoundland”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Brian, the owner of the B&B, was great during a recent family vacation in Newfoundland. On arrival in Fortune, he gave us the option of staying at the B&B or at a chalet/house that he had just a short ways out of town. The chalet was very nicely done up with all the necessary conveniences and certainly more space than we were expecting. Brian also helped us get front row seats at the Grand Bank Theatre and provided information on a variety of sightseeing and other options (we really enjoyed the running/walking trail along the river!). Newfoundland hospitality at its best.

Just a brief comment on Maxxim Vacations, who organized our trip, including our stay here. We were very happy with the end result (accommodation, tours, etc.). However, it was a bit of a challenge - despite providing very clear information about our arrival and departure dates from the beginning, there were repeated problems with the itinerary they put together. I know others have had very positive experiences with Maxxim so I don't know what happened in our case. Just make sure to very carefully review your itinerary before finalizing!!

We booked and began with being met by our host, he was incredible in greeting us, connecting us with what we needed and making suggestion of added sights and values to make our stay even better. Extremely clean and comfortable with everything that we needed for our family. I would highly recommend it and stay again, great value for our dollar.

My partner and I stayed here before our trip to St. Pierre. Our bedroom was nice enough although a few maintenance issues could be addressed - the mirror backing was peeling and some flooring was coming up. The room was very clean and the toiletries nice. The common area is comfortable with a TV, computer and two dining tables. The kitchen is also well equipped. The owners and staff are very friendly. The only real complaint is that the walls are very thin so you could hear everything. Still, we'd stay here again.

We were here for one night before taking the ferry to St. Pierre. The host was great and took us on a quick car tour of the town and showed us the fishermen, places to get a good meal and where to catch our ferry the next morning. The space is comfortable with wi-fi or a computer in the living room if you don't have a laptop. There is a self-serve breakfast the next day. The bedrooms are comfortable and clean with a nice washroom. The walls are thin though so bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

Stayed in Fortune before I took the ferry to St. Pierre. I booked quite late and was only guaranteed one night - I was hoping to stay two to take in a show at the Grand Bank Theatre Festival. When I arrived there was a late cancellation and I had the two nights. It's a great spot, clean and comfortable with a large front room with two dining tables and a computer. A well stocked 'breakfast fridge' and serving myself is just the way I like it. A great spot for a great price - Brian is very friendly and helpful - I wanted to have my van looked at and he called the garage himself looking for a mechanic. Great stuff!

Room Tip: Travelling to St. Pierre - a great spot to stay, just down the road from the ferry.

Fortune Harbourview is a comfortable cross between a B&B and a small inn. It is clean and comfortable with a good assortment for a make your own breakfast. Downstairs is a self contained 2 bedrooms with tv lounge, kitchen and full bath. Upstairs are other bedrooms, a beautiful bright common room, kitchen and eating area. Excellent value for money.
However, what sets this place apart for us was the exceptional service. Prompt and courteous repsonses to all telephone inquiries, a last minute rejuggling of room assignments to accommodate a last minute addition - in high season - a level of service which should be standard but frequently is not. Over and above that, the owner, Brian, personally took one of our party to see a particularly photogenic area, and arranged for us to have access to boats which were landing their fishing catch. We were even able to get codfish! Brian did everything to make our Newfoundland visit exceptional. Bravo.

I stayed at this B&B on July 5th. It was obviously newly built- bright and clean. The rooms are average size and the queen size bed was quite comfortable. There was a small ensuite with a shower stall, no tub.
The only thing that I found much different in this B&B from others I have stayed in is that the breakfast was serve yourself. There was a good variety of items from which to choose and I did opt for making scrambled eggs. But part of the fun of staying at a B&B for me is having a nice big breakfast cooked and served- often with goodies you would cook for yourself at home.
Overall, this was a nice place. I would stay again and would recommend to friends.
