“The perfect stop”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My boyfriend and I spent the week touring the east coast of Newfoundland (including a brief trip to France on the way - St. Pierre et Miquelon), and ended with two days in Trinity and the Bonavista Peninsula. We were so lucky to book two nights at the Maidment, without any prior information and it was without question the loveliest stay during our trip. Our room was large, charmingly decorated and with a bed my boyfriend declared to be the most comfortable of the week! And Karen went out of her way to make sure we were taken care of - calling restaurants to make sure we could still get in (its a shock for New Yorkers to end up places where there aren't all-night dining options!), offering hiking and activity advice, and lending us binoculars. She also cooks an absolutely incredible breakfast which we were lucky to enjoy twice. If we were to do our trip over again, we'd definitely spend more time at Trinity in general and the Maidment in particular!

While touring the ports of Newfoundland in June 2013 my wife and I stumbled upon Trinity and Maidment House. Both were a pleasant surprise. We had the room at the top of the stairs with a queen bed and ensuite. Everything was excellent. Breakfast was prepared by Karen (our informative hostess) and proved to be very good. Would we return to Trinity.....definitely, would we stay at Maidment House....for sure. The availability of tea, coffee, and light snacks in the evening would be a nice touch. The nightly rate was a wee bit more than comparable B&Bs we stayed in during our time on the rock.

My partner and I (both young graduate students) had a wonderful stay at Maidment house. We arrived late (and unexpectedly) after some bad weather forced us to cut our drive to St. John's short, and our host Karen went out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable (right down to calling the local restaurant to stay open late for us so we could get something to eat!). The heritage B&B was beautiful, with lovely touches (homemade soaps, stacks of books to browse through), and Karen is an incredible cook! After a week long hiking trip in the backcountry, our short stay here was the perfect treat! The town was beautiful, and Karen was very knowledgeable about what to do and see in the area - we just wish we had more time to explore!

A very welcoming place ... Karen was a lovely host, not to mention a cook. Breakfast,taken around a common table, was a pleasure. The food was excellent and the company around the table was amazing. People from across Canada and around the world. The B&B is located in more or less the centre of Trinity. I have a lung disease and cannot walk long distances, but Maidment was an ideal location for walking around the town. There was no TV in the rooms, but there was in the living room (the Olympics). Just a pleasure to spend a couple of days there.

Room Tip: There was no swimming pool or fitness centre! In a B&B??

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this heritage house B&B. Friendly, comfortable and good food. Reminded me of what life was like back in the days when we didn't lock our doors and our children could play safely in the community. Recommend a visit to Trinity and a stay at the lovely Maidment House. Try dinner at the Twine Loft but make a reservation as there are only 2 sittings a night and it is popular. And don't miss a theatre production across the street from the B&B.

we had a lovely couple of days here.karen cooks a very nice breakfast (2 course and different each day)and the tea or coffee keeps coming,the guests of the three rooms sharing one large table in the dining room. we had a queen room with ensuite .our vista was of the yard ,beyond to the local houses and the church.there is a shared living room with tv down stairs in this very homey accomodation.all fittings and furnishings are very nice and equipment is totally up to date (hairdryer in room).trinity is a very small village ,you park at your accommodation and just walk around everywhere.i recommend prebooking the rising tide theatre for what ever show may be on.we went to the dinner show and had a lot of fun-they have a varying range of shows each year.all would be good.there really isnt a night life as such there are a restaurants to eat at (prebook),the one at the harbour is very casual-walk up.there is an gallery that was having an evening wine tasting and viewing one night.if the weather is even fair get up early and go for a walk to take photos of this lovely town and harbour you will be back before breakfast anyway.thanks for a real newfoundland welcome karen.

I received a warm welcome at Maidment House in Trinity, a beautiful, centrally located B&B in a delightful little town. It was within easy walking distance of the museums and restaurants in town, and breakfast was filling and delicious, with some of the best coffee I had this trip. This was my first stay but it won't be my last -- I'd love to go back for a longer stay when time allows.
