Totally enjoyed our stay. The hosts were warm and welcoming, especially to our dog Clancy (who loved the homemade liver treats). Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious...we had a huge breakfast of fresh fruit and yogurt followed by bacon and eggs. We needed the protein for our 3 hour hike on the breathtaking Spiller's Cove hiking trail....

The owners of this b&b are very nice and accommodating. The location is on a busy main street. The room and bathroom that we had was mediocre (the first floor option). This place is OK, but I would not make it a first choice when visiting Twillingate.

Thank you for the review. Guests with limited mobility prefer the room you were in, (The Rheo room) as it is the only guest room on the ground floor with a washroom private for that room only, instead of an en-suite, (therefore we provide robes in the hand crafted armoire), and is the room we provide/encourage for guests that travel...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The entire theme of Rum Runners Roost is centered around the Rum Running Era(early 1900). The building itself was constructed at the beginning of this period and represents the fine architectural skills of the time and has been maintained and kept up to modern standards. Inside on display for all guests to read are copies of some of the original newspaper articles which depict some of the antics of the most famous rum runners of that time period. The furnishings in each room have been hand crafted by a local craftsman in a style reminiscent of the furniture design of that "Era". It was felt, what a better way to augment the rum running theme. A popular decorating technique of the time can be seen in the style of crown moulding in all guest rooms/washrooms. This particular style represents the financial affluence of the successful industry of Rum Running. The colours of each room were selected/coordinated not only to instill a calming effect but to also enhance the ambiance of the aforementioned time.Each room/washroom is complete with the necessary items to suit the needs of the discerning traveler: hair dryers T.V. DVD player, WiFi etc. As well, we now offer a full breakfast menu, guests can use the kitchen as they desire and enjoy our selection of teas, coffees. ... more   less

“First floor bedroom has bathroom off the kitchen i.e. less private once breakfast starts. This is reflected in lower room rate.”
