Cowichan Valley, B.C.
Reviewed 9 July 2016 via mobile

Three weeks involves a fair number of nights in different places and lots of fodder for reviews. I'm seeing a pattern to what works for me in a B&B context. If the establishment provides all of the necessaries (clean, safe, quiet, edible food) it starts at "3". If they add some level of personal engagement and/or something exceptional like unique...

Thank you for your feedback. Your way of rating a b&b is certainly different but interesting. We strive to cover all aspects of which we feel that meets our expectations for the comfort of our guests. Sometimes it does get a little busy but we try to spend some quality time with all our guests as best as possible. Again...

We had a fabulous time with Maureen and Keith...and of course Ketih's brother, Eric, a.k.a. the "Poof-fin Man" (or Puffin Man). Upon arrival, Maureen showed us to our room and then Keith proceeded to give us the low-down on the attractions and identified them on the local tourism map; he also showed us his "secret" places to go for great...

This B&B is lovely. We are three senior women who travel together and finding lodging that is economical is not always easy. Puffin's Landing in Bonavista was perfect for us. We had a large, lovely room with our own entrance. Breakfast was delicious, served in the dining room of the main house. Afterwards the hosts, Maureen and Keith entertained us...

Holy Mackerel! What a fantastic place to stay. Maureen and Keith are outstanding hosts. Keith's knowledge of the area is phenomenal and his stories are highly informative. We got to stay in the room that Winston Churchill's best buddy stayed in for quite a while. This fresh and very large B&B is spectacular with it's interior decor. Although it doesn't...

Keith and Maureen (the owners of this delightful B&B) are wonderful and informative hosts. They should be nominated co-mayors of Bonavista considering the pride they exhibit in their little town, and the depth of their knowledge of the culture and heritage of Newfoundland/Labrador. In addition to cooking and serving a bountiful and delicious breakfast, Maureen gave me pointers on excellent...

Girlfriend and I stayed for one night at Puffin's Landing in Bonavista. This B&B is very easy to find as there's easy to spot signs directing you all the way from the highway. The B&B is a renovated house from the 1900's and is very cosy/welcoming. There appears to be roughly 5-6 rooms throughout the building the house the guests....
