George and Lynn are wonderful hosts! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them. Our room had the most beautiful view of the ocean. All the rooms are so tastefully decorate right down to the smallest details! They are most most gracious hosts! We loved learning the history of how the house came to Harbour Grace! We will definitely be back... More

My husband and I stayed at Rothesay for one night during our Newfoundland travels. As our date/s of stay were a moving target I was in touch via email with Lynn and George on multiple occasions. Each correspondence was professional and timely and as a result left us with a good feeling that we wanted to stay here. When we... More

Had a great two night stay, and the dinner prepared by Lynn was a real highlight and bonus to our stay. George had maps and knowledge for the places we should include in our discovery of the area. Morning coffee on the front deck was a delight.

we were lucky to get a last minute room and were really pleased with the stay. George was a wealth of knowledge and even booked us a dinner reservation at a local pub. Lynn's breakfast was first rate and with the finishing and decorating they have done our stay was most momorable. I'd stay again, but for longer.

We can't say enough nice things about our stay at the Rothesay B&B. Upon arrival George and Lynn were very friendly ad welcoming. The 160+ year old home boasted amazing craftsmanship. Along with a beautiful view of the bay and a delicious roasted tomato frittata breakfast, we would highly recommend treating yourself to a stay at the Rothesay. If you're... More

George and Lynn made our first time staying in a B&B a pleasant experience. They were gracious hosts making us feel welcome in their home, while respecting our privacy. The Rothesay House is a heritage home overlooking Harbour Grace, which has been maintained to reflect the original character. Our room had an ocean view which was spectacular, and it was... More

A group of us stayed here for a four night period and could not have been more delighted with our choice of accommodations. The owners were more than accommodating with dietary needs, sharing of information and making us feel quite at home and comfortable throughout the house. Our rooms were nicely appointed, sheets and bedding were good quality and beds... More
