We had the opportunity to stay for 3 nights. The facility a former store is clean,well appointed . Our room was charming, including the sloping floor. My biggest concern is that it bills itself as a B&B.. The bed part was fine,but cold cereal hardly qualifies as breakfast and for us removed some of its charm

We had a very spacious room with a king sized bed, jacuzzi tub and mini fridge. There was loads of space to put luggage and the bathroom was very large and clean. Our room had period decor however the very large common lounge was dated and not true to the period of the house so could of used a facelift. The breakfast room was also very charming with loads of light from all the windows. While the breakfast was not fancy or large it was tasty and filling. Being the town of Trinity is very small, everything was walkable from here. Parking was plentiful. There was no elevator in the main house so be prepared to walk up an old staircase with your luggage.

Me and my family (6 all together including a baby) decided to head to the Port Rexton and Trinity area for the day to do some exploring! We stopped into this establishment for our supper. The server who met us at the door was very accommodating and put two tables together for us to be seated together. We get seated and and the server was at our table within a couple of minutes to take our order, we still needed more time and asked to come in a few minutes. she was back again like two minutes later. We still weren't ready but she made us feel rushed so we ordered anyway without having the proper time to look over the menu. She returned later on with out drinks. Me and my siblings had tea and we couldn't even mix it because we still never had our cutlery. Then came our food. My sister's burger was burnt, we found plastic in my other sisters tarter sauce. During the time we were eating not one server checked in to see if our food was ok or if we needed anything else. The whole time we felt very uncomfortable and like we were an inconvenience. The manager came down to serve another table and as she was walking away didn't even acknowledge that we were there. I had to ask for our bill and where we had to go and pay. When the serve came out with out bills (which we had to go looking for) we very politely expressed our thoughts about how poorly we were treated and the server got very upset with us and got the manager. We tried to explain the situation to her while the server was yelling at us and constantly cutting us off while we were in the middle of a saying something. The manager then decided to take it out back so that we weren't in the main entry way, understandable. The manager physically put her hand on my back and pushed me in the direction, which I didn't appreciate at all and said to her that she didn't have to push me. This whole time the server was still cutting us off while we were talking and pointing a pen in my sister's face. The manager then ripped the bill from my hand told us that we didn't have to pay for our meal. She said "there your meal is free, that's what you wanted anyway" which isn't true. Me and my family pay for our meals everywhere we go and leave a tip as well. We were extremely disappointed that our fun day was ruined because a server didn't know how to treat her customers properly. I work in the restaurant industry and know first hand how busy tourist season can be. Never have I seen such a rude and obnoxious server!! Learn how to treat your customers better and don't just assume that they're looking for a free meal because they have a complaint!!!!!

What my family and I just witnessed at this restaurant is something we will never forget. We were seated close enough to hear how rude some other customers were treated by their server and I can only assume the manager. One of the customers had a burger that was burnt black and they couldn’t even get the attention of the server to let them know. When they went to pay for their meal another lady that was with them commented about how poorly they were treated. The person I assume to be the manger put their hands on the customer and told them let take this over here but we could still hear and then accused them of only coming there for a free meal when they had their credit card and were willing to pay. I was afraid to complain about poor my meal was, I feared I would be embarrassed and treated the same. The the customers that were there dining while we were there I’m very sorry your had to experience something like that. Worst customer service I ever witnessed

We stayed at this place in room 5 last week. The bathroom was tight and poorly appointed. Both the sink and shower had hair from previous visitors stuck to the sides. The volume of water in both was just a trickle.. unbelievable how that could be considered to rent. The soap and shampoo was too scented and the room was scented as you enter. Bad for allergies. The key got stuck in the lock and was difficult to get out. A trip to the bathroom had you wiping little stones from your feet before getting back in bed. It wasn't quaint, it was tired and not attended to properly. Stay elsewhere if you can.

A friend and myself used Trinity as our base Hotel to rest from hiking and travelling in the area We made a reservation a week ahead pf time but when we got there we were notified there was a wedding the next day and a party going on that night. Thankfully the guests only partied until 11 pm because pur room was exactly next door to the party room. Really?!?? Breakfast was ok. Coffee excellent and service too

We had a comfortable stay at the Eriksen Premises. Room was nice with a comfortable bed and a couple of armchairs. Breakfast was included and was served in a nice room with lovely views and was plentiful including a hot breakfast if you wanted it. My only criticism was the bathroom - no room for your toiletries and a hand held shower over a claw footed bath - looks nice but not very satisfactory.

Our guest room was in the main building. The ensuite bathroom’s sink was partially clogged as it took forever to drain – no one at the front desk to address this issue, no directions on who to phone if no one at the front desk and the adjoining Gift Shop workers were very busy with lots of customers … we lived with it! Enjoyed sitting in the comfortable common room. Breakfast the next morning was in Sophia's and was magnificent.

Our room was off site so you had to go back to the main building for breakfast. That also meant that when a problem arose, there was no one to take care of it. A breaker flipped for the hydro in our room so we were powerless all night. That's an issue not being able to recharge our devices. The tile floor was freezing. When we went to check out and told the staff about this, they were not concerned. We just got a very vague and insincere apology. I was hoping they would discount the room since we certainly didn't get what we paid for. We also should have been told that there is a lighthouse which shines its light in the window all night long. The breakfast choice was limited to 2 things, pancakes or oatmeal.

Fits in very well with the Trinity area. Rooms are of the size you would expect in a historic setting. If you something bigger, stay in Clarenville. Rooms were clean, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast was fine. Wifi is good. Would readily stay here again if in the area. Great staff,and both a good restaurant and gift shop on premises.
