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.

Travelling to Bonavista and booked into the Russelltown Inn we were offered the "Loft". The upstairs room was spacious and beautifully appointed with high quality furniture and accessories. The finishing and cleanliness was superb, and decorating current. In the large bathroom toiletries from West Coast Glow were offered and appreciated, as was the local Bonavista Coffee Company coffee with a French press. Bonus - we had been travelling for a few days across the island and when checking in we were offered the use of the machine on the lower (entrance) level of our unit which was nice. Breakfast was a winner with a carafe of coffee accompanied with yogurt, muffins, warm boiled eggs and fruit.

Our stay at Russelltown Inn’s Pink Perch was outstanding! The heritage home on Church Street is beautiful and immaculate, with great views of the sunset and a perfect location which is walking distance to everything. The bed is so comfortable we slept like babies! The kitchen is well equipped and the East Coast Glow toiletries provided are divine! The only problem was we couldn’t stay longer! Loved it! Highly recommended <3

We stayed in the Lawrence room which was okay but our screen door lock broke so we were locked in our room, with no staff on the premises. When I complained that this is a safety hazard due to possible fire, instead of an apology we were told we could always climb out the window. Seriously? Our friends stayed in a cottage like room that smelled like mildew. Overall, I’ve had much better stays.

We stayed in the loft suite - fabulous, spacious, quiet, comfortable ... Smallish breakfast delivered to door (still covid precautions). When I told the woman, I don't drink coffee and seldom eat eggs, she went out of her way to get juice and some pastries for the other mornings - super service and consideration for the clients. Located on side street, easy walking distance to restaurants and Mathieu ship, easy driving distances to Ryan Premises, puffins, lighthouse, Dungeon Provincial Park. Stayed three nights - loved it. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our time here. The room had everything we needed. It had a kettle and a french press. We loved that the breakfast was delivered to our room. I loved being able to enjoy breakfast in our room. The internet was outstanding! The only thing was the bed was high.. A little stool needs to be in the room. We stayed in the Bonnavista suite which is on th 2nd floor of the main home. It's a struggle to get there if you have alot of luggage or mobility issues. It. was so quiet and peaceful there. The bed very comfortable.

My husband and I travelled recently to Bonnavista. I am not a fan of Bed and Breakfast locations. HOwever this one was different as they brought the breakfast to your door. Great quality. We stayed in the main home that you check in at in the Bonnavista Suite. It was so lovely and clean. My only complaint was that the bed was pretty high and hard to get into. They provided a kettle and a french press. There was some bottled water in the refrigerator. Our room was so very quiet and the bed although high was very comfortable. If you have alot of luggage or mobility issues this is not the suite for you as you need to go up a staircase to get there. The breakfast was amazing and quite satisfying. Boiled, eggs, yogurt with granola, muffins and fruit were included. I would definiately go back to this location.. Oh it should be noted that the internet connection here was outstanding!

Lawrence room is the lower part of an old barn. Check in was between 3 - 6 and the person wore a mask as we did. Felt check-in was good. Parking is good, and right out front of the room, and right behind the building you check in, but a bit tight to get in and out when full. The room was clean, spacious with a modern, spacious bathroom. The bed is comfortable but may be a bit high for shorter people to get into. You can hear every movement of the people in the loft above including walking, showering, etc. More thought should have been given to sound proofing for the price one pays for this accomodation. Breakfast was delivered to our room about 8:30, but delivered earlier by a friendly lady. It included a craf of coffee, yogurt, tangerine, packaged muffin, and a (small package of packaged granola to mix with the packaged yogurt), (next day hard boiled eggs) per person, nicely placed within a wooden box with cups, bowls, cutlery, etc. Coffee mate was included and not cream / milk ? Coffee & tea can be made in the room with a kettle, coffee press but the set up is on top of the fridge and microwave, with limited space. Wine glasses are also provided. Excellent outdoor seating is provided on the porch and grass areas. Please repair / change the storm door latch as you must fiddle with it to ensure closure. If your neighbour doesn't latch their door properly it will bang in the night as there is often wind. Our upstairs neighbour's door banged in the wind. Laundry can be done between 3 - 6 in the main building with soap provided.

We overnighted in Bonavista and this "boutique" place seemed like a good choice. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the Loft Suite which was in the building behind the Jubilee House where you check in. Our room was located on the second floor and accessed by a stairway. It had its own private entrance and parking right in front of the door. It was a NS, King with a fridge, microwave and French Press Coffee Maker. There was a table and chairs as well. There was no other seating however, an accent chair and ottoman would have been a nice addition. Nice vinyl plank floors and big vaulted ceiling with 3 beams across. With a nice decorative chandelier. Large bathroom with a very nice walk in shower. Everything was extremely clean and well cared for. Looked like it had been redone recently. There was no air conditioning. Since there was a howling gale blowing it wasn't an issue for us but something to know. One of the ladies brought us a nice light breakfast in the morning. Coffee, fruit, muffins and hard boiled eggs. There were a few dining choices within walking distance if the weather had been more cooperative. Price was very reasonable and the staff pleasant and helpful. Glad we stayed here and we would stay again.

My wife and I visited Newfoundland in the off season, and the first part was a four days stay at the beautiful Bonavista Peninsula. We chose the town of Bonavista as the base for our day trips and the lovely Russeltown Inn was the perfect choice for our visit. The town is quaint and convenient and had a good choice of restaurants. It is the Inn which will make us remember Bonavista with fondness. Our suite was in a lovingly restored 1887 heritage home, and it was so super comfortable and relaxing and quiet with all the modern amenities. Our breakfast was included in the rate and it was delicious and filling, hand delivered each morning at 815. I also was able to use the super comfy lounge on the first floor in the evening to read. You can walk to the local restaurants close to the inn. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. From the inn it was a short drive to all the attractions of the Bonavista Peninsula, including the hikes, lighthouse, Elliston for the puffins and the beautiful town of Trinity. All in all, we had an amazing four days at the Russeltown Inn and this was one of the best small inns we experienced in our long years of travel all over the world. Highly recommended !

A very quaint inn in town. Our room upstairs was lovely with a comfortable bed, fluffy pillows and duvet. The owners’ attention to detail is great from the decor, the toiletries in the bathroom, French press in the room, etc. It was very quiet despite the room across from ours being occupied…the doors are offset at different ends of the hallway which helps.
