We enjoyed our time at The Merchants Manor (sister building to Sophia's). The room was larger than we expected and super clean. The owner was friendly and available. The only thing was for the price, a more luxurious breakfast would have been nice, but the eggs were good. Overall, we had a great experience, a warm room, awesome jacuzzi and...

The inn is for sale because the owner has three properties and is approaching 70. Yet the interior is spotless ( both houses). The outdoor facade needs painting, which is being done. The driveway is awful and seems grown over but its the inside that counts. We had a lovely room ( 2) in the Merchant House. Shower, claw foot...

At first glance, the parking area of the Sophia Heritage Inn in Carbonear may put you off a little bit. It is small, connected to the road via a terrible driveway and partially grass. But once you get out of your car under the wonderful trees and step into a lovely heritage style Inn you will get better quickly. We...

We stayed here as part of our bike tour and it was comfortable but not outstanding although I suspect it may actually be one of the nicest spots in Carbonear to stay. As others have mentioned you can only get breakfast there which was pretty standard but was a hot breakfast with bacon and eggs. Our room was large and...

We stayed at the Merchant House for three nights in June and quite enjoyed ourselves. The room was very nice and Ida was most informative and helpful. Breakfasts are bacon, eggs, toast with French toast one morning and they were very good. Certainly a nice change from the normal Continental breakfasts. Our only issue was that upon arrival, we were...

We stayed at Merchant's Manor (adjacent B&B on the same property; same owner). Management is really lacking! We booked the biggest room with the jacuzzi a week before we went there, and they failed to mention to us that when we arrive, there will be plenty of people (who were not guests) hanging around in the house the entire evening...

We spent a night at this beautiful inn in August. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. We ate at the intimate onsite restaurant and the food was absolutely delicious. The size of the room is conducive to striking up conversation with fellow travellers which made for a very enjoyable time! The included breakfast was wonderful. We look forward...

We stayed in the Kali Justine Suite, and it had air conditioning and a fan, which we were very grateful for - we don't usually get really high temperatures in Newfoundland, but it was really hot the day/night we stayed. The young lady who checked us in and also served supper was very pleasant, and professional. The supper was delicious,...

When we arrived in late June, the owner's youngish daughter was in charge. I'm sure she'll be better trained when the season is over - but not yet - we paid a lot of money only to be treated like we were getting in the way, and probably trying to rip her mother off. I started off feeling quite unwelcome....

We love staying in older homes that have been made into B&B. The wood work, rooms and history are always an interesting combination. We stayed in Nicole Adrienne's guest room. and were pleased with the furnishings and linens. They also have a cozy resturant in the old dinning room. We splurged and had the pork tenderloin with homemade rubarb chutney....
