“Excellent hospitality bar none!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This was one of our favorite stops in Newfoundland. Glad we stayed 2 nights, wish we could've stayed longer but we are already planning another trip with this B&B as our main stop! The breakfast table was beautifully set and we had a very filling and satisfying start to each day. Highly recommend the Butler's, they know lots about the area and are more than willing to help out with directions, food recommendations etc. We had the larger room and it was lovely! Highly recommend this gem of a B&B

We settled into the spacious suite completed by a fireplace, robes, slippers, sofa and outdoors a picnic area perched on the rocks overlooking the sea. The Butlers provided a delicious breakfast with many extras and choices. Definitely a wonderful spot for travellers.

On August 17th we called Butler By The Sea and spoke to (Hubert, owner) and asked him if is B & B was a Star 4and was breakfast included in the $120 and he said YES to both questions. We then asked if he had a room for August 18th he said he had no room but had a cottage he would rent for $120., we asked if it was a Star 4 and he said YES, we asked if it was nice and he said YES, we asked if we would get breakfast and he said YES, so we decided to rent the cottage over the phone while we were in Twillingate.

We drove hard that day to make it before dusk because of the moose, and was exhausted when we arrived around 8 pm. We drove to Butler By The Sea and was meet by Janice (owner) who said she would take us to the cottage it was by no means close. When we arrived we looked at the cottage and thought it looked very old but was so tired we decided to go inside and have a look, we were very disappointed the cottage was very old inside and not nice (Hubert,had said it was nice and 4star). We were unsure what to do and Janice said we wouldn't get any thing else there was a festival going on, we asked about the breakfast and she said there would be NO breakfast, not what her husband Hubert had said. We ask if we could use the washer and dryer that was in the cottage and she said NO she had laundry in them ( I thought the appliance would've been part of the cottage, (would not you.) She didn't give us a receipt (do not people in business give receipts) obviously she just pockets the money when she rents this cottage (that is against what the government saids we should do, they call that elegal.

We stayed the night and did not use the bathtub/shower because it had mildew around the top of the bath. The floor in places was very soft in the cottage, the floor in the bathroom went downhill. There was only 1 door (a fire strap) there were no screens on the windows, multi electric plugs with a kettle and toaster plugged in, the towels were stained and old.

These people are passing this very old and dirty cottage of as part of the advertised B and B, they are using the B and Bs phone number and this is elegal to say the least, I'm sure TRIP ADVISOR does not approve of this.

We stayed at some very nice B and B when travelling around during Newfoundland,
Ocean Spray, Port Saunders
Ice Berg Alley, Twillingate
Cupid B and B, Cupid
Indian Brook B and B.

But Butler By The Sea has spoilt our holiday and we did not expect this on our vacation in Newfoundland.

We do hope you take this complaint serious, as we are sending 5 letters out to Government officials.

My daughters and I stayed here during our cross neufoundland road trip. The place was beautiful and the hosts so very friendly! Breakfast was fantastic! We had the larger room. So comfortable. Had the best sleep! This place was our best stay so far and we've been traveling for a week and a half! Highly recommend it

We stayed for 3 nights in early August 2012. We had the larger room and it was very comfortable for 3 nights. Janice and Herb were great hosts. Breakfast was wonderful each morning and yes, step outside and you are at sea. Bonavista is a beautiful area and we are glad we stayed 3 nights. This is a wonderful spot and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: If staying for more than one night the larger room is wonderful!

Not to say that any of the other B&Bs were shabby but Butler's had everything a traveler may need. Comfortable beds , quiet, awsome breakfast prepared by Janice and Herb. When we recomended it to other travelers who we met in Tors Cove they immediately called to book there. Have to thank Jason also for a history lesson on the area too. Butlers by the Sea is #1 in my books
