We were welcomed with open arms and treated with great kindness here. Clearly innkeeping is an avocation for this lovely couple. The place is spotless and has a grand feel to it. Breakfast was most enjoyable, and the room was comfortable. A great place to stay!

We had a wonderful 3 night stay with Lynn and George who epitomize the word “hosts”. By far the best B&B we stayed at during our 2 week travels in Newfoundland. The location was perfectly central for exploring the peninsula and beyond, and also offered a beautiful trail you can walk to, just down the road, named Pirates Path. George would be delighted to tell you it’s history as well as share his formidable knowledge of entire area. Lynn’s marvellous taste in decor is evident throughout this historic gem and her talents extend to the kitchen with exquisite breakfasts that will delight you. The bedrooms are spotless, the beds very comfortable and the overall ambience knocks it out of the park.

Thank you B. and C. for your kind words. After hosting for 20 years it is so rewarding to meet wonderful people and to share our home. We are happy to have been a part of your good memories of NL. Personalities make a difference.

The B&B looks amazing and is very well maintained. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Breakfast was a bit of a disappointment given the great looks of the Inn itself. It was good but nothing to rave about. The location is good if you plan on visiting the area. The husband and wife who own the place are very social and helpful.

Thank you for your review and comments on our property. After 20 years of the chef(my wife) prepping evening dining and full and varied breakfast menus for thousands of guests the morning meals are prepared with attention to flavour, freshness and presentation served in an elegant dining environment. The comment "but nothing to rave about" is like personalities, sometimes nothing to rave about.

Lovely Bed and Breakfast! George and Lynn are excellent hosts and couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. Knowledgeable about the area and helpful as we were searching our family history. Beds are comfortable and the ambiance in each carefully decorated bedroom so delightful! The breakfast was excellent and you have to come down a bit early to take in the decor of that room!! Thank you both for a wonderful stay!

Hosts, George and Lynn, were just so friendly and welcoming from the moment I arrived. The walkway up to the front door was full of lupens and blooms of yellow and mauve - as a gardener myself, I appreciated the view of the entire property, which was lush with flora and fauna unfamiliar to me from Central Canada. Directly across the street was the bay, I came to see the ocean.. The house is beautifully decorated and so cozy, noted was a quiet room for reading stock full of books about Harbour Grace and NFLD's history. My room looked out to the bay, and the ocean wind smelled wonderful. My bathroom was very clean and well maintained, I lacked for nothing. My breakfast was huge; I was offered a wonderful meal with healthy food, yogurt and berries, juice and coffee. (Great cup of joe) then eggs, or an omelet made to my preference. If you like beautiful china and porcelain tea sets, you will need to poke around the dining room. I learned much about the town, where my grandmother was born and raised, it's history and where my family lived - directly across the bay! If you like very early summer mornings, ask George about the sunrise. I was treated to the most incredible ocean view sunrise I have ever seen. See photos to know what I witnessed - spectacular!! I'd recommend this charming B&B and I hope to return soon! Thank you G & L.

We stayed at this wonderful B&B in early September, 2022, and we couldn't have been happier. The rooms were fabulous...interesting, clean, and comfortable. George and Lynn were great hosts and went out of their way to be helpful. On top of it all, the breakfast was fabulous!

This was the only B&B we stayed at where the owners lived in the same house. We had a lovely experience and great conversations with George and Lynn. Breakfast was spectacular. The home was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We would stay here again.

Such a beautiful old home, but even more beautiful are the owners and inn keepers. Lynn and George make you feel like you are staying with “family” Clean quiet rooms, delicious home cooking Whether it’s just an out of town over nighter like we did, or a more extended stay. We highly recommend you give Rothsay House a go!
