We recently stayed in the Terra Nova Hospitality Inn with another couple because we couldn't get into the Terra Nova Golf Resort Lodge. The Inn/B&B is located about 8 minutes down the highway from the Twin Rivers Golf Course in Port Blandford. The property actually consists of a building housing a B&B, eight one or two bedroom cottages and an Inn with approximately eight rooms, a large banquet room, kitchen and washroom. There is an enclosed porch on the front of the inn overlooking a nice view of the ocean, forest and highway. The rooms of the inn are located on the second floor, however, it has a ramp so is wheelchair accessible. They consist of two double beds, a small bathroom, separate vanity area, dresser, ancient TV and a small table with a coffee maker and some tiny wine glasses. There are tons of extra glasses and dishes in the kitchen at the end of the hall and the guests have access to several propane barbeques if they wish to cook for themselves. You have to get a propane tank from the reception desk as they are not left on the bbq's.
Breakfast is only provided for those guests staying in the B&B side, however, if you want to eat there in the morning, the staff will accommodate. We did not eat there so I cannot comment on the quality or quantity of the food.
My major complaint about the room we stayed in was the water in the tub/shower. There was just no happy medium. You either froze or scalded yourself. When we complained to the desk, they said that you could adjust it in the centre for warm water. That was absolutely not the case and we were very uncomfortable while taking a shower. You definitely could not let children bathe under those circumstances.
The rooms were very clean, although dated and the bathroom lighting extremely poor. The staff were friendly but seemed overwhelmed with the upkeep and maintenance involved with such a large property.
When we checked out the next morning, we accidently left a watch behind in our room. I have since tried to contact the hotel but have not received a response and will most likely never see the watch again.
The property is up for sale and you can see that the owners are weary and don't really want to have much more to do with it. Sadly, there were only two other cottages occupied the night we were there in mid-August, a bustling tourist season.
