#3 of 8 B&Bs / Inns in Bonavista
With a history of serving guests for over a decade, Russelltown Inn welcomes you with a tradition of Newfoundland hospitality, rich heritage, and all the conveniences a modern traveler requires. The Inn is located in the quiet, historic residential neighborhood of “Russelltown”, just minutes from Downtown Bonavista and within walking distance to the harbour, shops, museums, and an array of great restaurants. The Russelltown Inn is designed with you in mind, allowing guests the privacy of a hotel with the charm of a bed and breakfast. Rooms are located throughout the property in multiple restored heritage buildings. We've tailored each room, our hospitality and amenities to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. We hope that our attention to detail shines through each moment of your stay. We are pleased to offer a breakfast menu developed by Red Seal Chef Katie Hayes of the Bonavista Social Club. Chef Hayes not only loves cooking with fresh Newfoundland ingredients but has developed a breakfast menu inspired by the same. Breakfast will feature Bonavista Social Club homemade bread baked daily from the only commercial wood-fired bread oven in Newfoundland and Labrador as well as fresh free-range eggs and Nanny Hayley's Jams & Jellies. These jams and jellies contain no preservatives and are made from recipes dating back to the mid 1800's. The recipes originated from the Cape Shore in Bonavista and were handed through the generations. All of Nanny Hayley's jams are made from wild berries, handpicked in the Bonavista area. Breakfast is included with your stay. Hiking, iceberg, whale and bird-watching nearby. Walking distance from historic sites, Garrick Theatre, restaurants and coffee shop.

Recently stayed at this Inn. We booked here originally to stay in the Glamping Pods. We later added one night in the B&B before the pods. When we checked in the first night for the B&B, the young lady which appeared very much annoyed with our questions, advised that we would not be able to check into the pods on Day 2 (even if there was nobody staying in the pod the night before). The night inside the Inn was comfortable and great. The next day, I went to see the front desk and hope to see another employee, hoping to see someone different. I was greeted by a different person who said I could go at the Pod (at 9am) as nobody had stayed there the night before. She was much friendly. We checked into the pods, there was instructions that the kitchen was closed and that all utensils and kitchen stuff were removed due to COVID (which we were hoping to use). Everything was there, so we ended up using it even tho we were not allowed. Only rating a 3, because hotel staff on day one was terrible, very inconsistant compared to what is advertised online.

Didn't do much research and happened to stumble upon this room as I was very last minute in booking due to work. Safe to say, I was not disappointed! Beautiful, clean room with very friendly staff! Breakfast was served around 8am each morning. I would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Russeltown Inn did not disappoint! Clean and stylish with an atmosphere that respected the tradition of these wonderful houses, it was a joy to stay here. The local soaps and creams in the washroom, the beautiful breakfast of homemade goodies delivered to the door in the morning, and the warm welcome from Stephanie makes this a place we will visit again!

We stayed in the Loft Suite for one night and were impressed with the accommodation. While it feels like a heritage building from outside, the rooms was modern and well appointed. Specifically the soaring ceilings and enormous bathroom gave it a spacious feeling that is very unique. Another highlight was the east coast glow bath products and netflix available in the room. What prevented this from being a five-star review was the service. Very friendly at check-in, the team didn't really make an effort beyond that. So if you're looking for the kind of stay where you don't interact with anyone, would recommend Russelltown. The other minus was the breakfast which was super-sweet packaged yogurt and muffins (the coffee, however, was delicious). At check-in they mentioned that someone would deliver the breakfast between 8-8:30 and then leave to maintain social distancing. What actually happened is that we had a very loud knock right at 8:00 and she didn't stop until we came down to physically take the breakfast from her which ended up being very awkward and was not the best way to start the day.

After we booked our non-refundable, full-priced room, we were told via email that breakfast was not on offer and were told to check out local places for breakfast (90% of which were closed for the season). There was a boil order in place for tap water and nobody informed us of this, so we drank tap water not knowing we shouldn't have done so and only found out because we overheard locals talking about it when we found somewhere to have breakfast. The water pressure in the shower was really weak, so washing my hair was annoyingly tedious. There were no tissues, only an empty tissue box. And the shower didn't drain properly, so I was standing in 2 inches of soapy water for the duration of my shower. There were positives,too: the room itself was beautiful, the bed comfortable, the location quiet. We enjoyed our visit, but the attention to detail was definitely lacking and I felt swindled out of a promised breakfast.
