While here for vacation, we stayed in the rooms in the new conference facilities. Pleasantly decorated, with art available for purchase our room was similar in size to a hotel room but very new. We had a 'forest view room' which means you aren't looking at the coast and the only downside is that it was very hot and sunny during our visit and the room doesn't get ocean breezes. Not many breezes at all....the fan comes in handy. We had one very hot night where even the fan wasn't very helpful, but we managed. We had dinner and breakfast in the dining room and food is lovely. Can't beat the setting....would highly recommend but book early so you can get a room with a view.

Room tip: Choose a room with view of ocean.

Everything in this inn was perfectly thought out - from the binoculars and flashlights in the room, to the welcome bag of trail mix, to the walking sticks. We were in the smallest and least expensive room, and it was just delightfully furnished and not at all too small for us; exactly what I hoped for from an inn.

The food was wonderful; the dinner was expensive, but worth it, and the restaurant accommodated a change from fish to meat for my daughter without hesitation. (That same picky daughter has always disliked soup, but raved about the Inn's roasted onion soup for days afterwards.) The breakfasts were also delicious - the first day we had the full breakfast which was $18.00, but the next day opted for the Continental breakfast for $10.00 because it was more than enough.

The staff were also very helpful; we had no hot water the first morning and when we phoned the front desk they immediately offered to move us to a suite in the main hotel, and also offered us the use of a shower in an empty room in the building we were in. (They had it fixed later that morning.)

Our only complaint, and it is minor, is that we walked the Skerwink Trail, and would have appreciated a signpost at the end directing us back to the Inn, as we missed the turn and started the trail again.

This was the second stop on my recent tour of Newfoundland and was a distinct improvement on the first stop!

Location: The inn is located in the wonderfully remote and quiet settlement of Port Rexton. It is well positioned for the local hiking trails and not far from the attractive historical town of Trinity. Look out for signs point the way to the inn – they do exist, but they’re a bit small.

Reception: The welcome here was friendly and efficient. No complaints!

Accommodation: My room was just gorgeous, with a great view of the sea. I was strongly tempted to just sit in there the whole time!

Food and drink: There is only one choice for dinner and it is, perhaps, a little on the pricey side, but not prohibitively so. There is a nice choice of wines. The meal on my one evening here was well cooked and the service friendly. Ditto the next morning for breakfast.

I have no qualms about recommending this place to anybody. I only wish I could have stayed longer myself.

This is a beautiful, magical inn on a hillside overlooking Port Rexton. Just steps to the fabled Skerwink trail, surrounded by gardens and flowers and with the best food outside of St John's. A little pice of heaven.....

This was our first stop in Newfoundland, and it was a great first impression! The place is really well kept for its age, and has amazing views. A little challenging to find at first, but well worth the effort. They serve an amazing dinner... we were lucky enough that they were serving lobster the night we stayed. Dinner was a bit pricey, but for fresh lobster caught that day, it was worth it. The room was clean and spacious, and they have lots of little 'extras' to help with your experience such as binoculars, some complimentary trail mix, walking sticks and so on. Would definitely go back, as we were on our way to Bonavista, and this worked out well.
