“Unique Property”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

There were a number of older homes restored. The one we stayed in had the reception area on the main level with two rooms above. The one with the dining room also had rooms above. There were at least two others with rooms only. They are a distance apart with walking paths.
They were casual and immaculate. We could see the ocean from our bedroom window and the breezes blew through the windows. In the distance, the fog horn was blowing as it was a foggy evening. What a truly Newfoundland experience.
We dined in the dining room and the food was delicious -we never get cod like this in Saskatchewan..

We stayed for one night at the Fisher's Loft (it's in Port Rexton but only a 5-10 min drive away from Trinity which is a historical town and has a theater night).

The rooms were fabulous and the service was great. They also provide binoculars so go out on the cliff and look for whales - we were there when the caplin were rolling in, and we saw A TON of them just off the coast.

You're also right next to the Skerwink trail which is a MUST DO.

The only disappointment was that we did the set dinner (appetizer/main/dessert) for $56 per person+ tax and we were expecting some great fresh local seafood. Unfortunately, we got farmed salmon (which we can easily get back home in Ontario).

There IS a moratorium on salmon fishing, so it's virtually impossible to get any wild salmon, but the chef could have done SO MANY other things! Cod, squid, scallops, crab, lobster, mackrel. Anything!

Farmed fish was a big disappointment.

This place is very professionally run with pursuit of perfection obviously the goal. The various buildings are situated on a hill overlooking Port Ruxton and Trinity Bay and we felt that the village itself is more authentic than Trinity and the location is truly beautiful. The house we were in is at the highest level; our rooms (2 couples) very comfortable with wonderful beds. The food, though a bit pricey, is delicious, of the highest quality, both dinner and breakfast. The service was excellent and everyone seemed so happy to make us welcome. We stayed 2 nights and would have loved to stay longer.

We stayed at Fishers’ Loft in the Conference House on a very recent visit. Although the location was beautiful and the facility was well kept, it did lack a sense of something special. The rooms were comfortable but without the welcoming feel we often have experienced in Newfoundland. In fact the room seemed almost monastic in its starkness. Although this is a matter of taste there are three factual problems with the facility. First there is no elevator in the Conference House and the rooms are on the second floor which can be a problem. Second, this was the only hotel/inn in which we stayed that did not have room darkening shades; sunrise is very early. Third, there is no AC and despite a fan, the room was less than comfortable.

Room Tip: Be aware of lack of elevators.

The beauty of this place is overwhelming from the moment you turn off the road. The reception area is in it's own building on a gravel road as you enter. We were warmly greeted and introduced to the property and our room.

After a very short drive on another gravel cart path we came to one of several houses that would be where we found our room. The older home, beautifully restored, was surrounded by lush gardens forever views.

The room was nicely furnished with sea views on two sides. The bath was large and clean.

The only thing keeping Fisher's Loft from a five star review is the thin walls. The guest upstairs was having an afternoon nap while I was reading in the room below. I could hear him snoring! I wouldn't complain about snoring but that is an indication of just how little sound it takes to be heard in another room. Arriving guests talking to each other in the hall sounded as if they were in the room with us. The Inn's website asks guests to be considerate of others and keep the noise down, credit to them for that.

For our party of three we all found Fishers Loft lacked the real feel of Newfoundland we found at other places in the Trinity area. Our first impression was provided by the receptionist who was professional and aloof with no typical warm Newfoundland welcome. Our room was well appointed but again lacked an authentic Newfoundland feel. We had just stayed at another Trinity Inn similarly set up with several small houses and a main dining room and there was no comparison. Yes the stairwells were narrow and the floors were squeaky as they should be in a historic home, but the beds were comfy and it was a great experience. The staff at that Inn were ALL exceptionally warm and welcoming. The food was phenomenal. Fishers Loft may appeal to those looking for an upscale Newfoundland experience, but for us it lacked authenticity.

Great Rooms, helpful staff. Spent a couple of nights in a loft here, and well worth it. Views are perfect. Had a minor issue with one thing in the room and we had three different staff come and apologize about it. You won't find that degree of attention many places. Meals are $$ but worth it. Suggest reserving your dinner reservation before you arrive as late seating fills up early.
