We stayed in a three bedroom unit. The two rooms upstairs had great views of the bay. The room downstairs had a very low ceiling which was awkward, but all the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully equipped. The host was very helpful. It was great to be able to do laundry as well. The B&B is located close to the puffins and close to a couple of snack bars and restaurants.

My family decided to rent what they call "the king suite" the bird island b&b does not offer breakfast, there were no toiletries (ie) soap, shampoo. We had no paper towels, no necessities. The host did not greet us, when she called she was super unfriendly. There is absolutely no cell service in this town, and this is not mentioned. We killed over 40 flies in our rooms, and living quarters. Cupboards were falling off, and it was not clean. The only 2 good things about this b&b was the view, and comfortable beds.

My wife and another couple travelling with us enjoyed three nights at Bird Island BnB. We each had our own rooms with en suite privileges and were greeted each morning to a hearty fresh cooked breakfast. Our hosts Charlotte and Robin were friendly and informative. The view from the front deck was an unobstructed and very picturesque. We would not hesitate to stay here on our next visit ti beautiful Newfoundland.

Whales right outside your door. We stayed in the king bedroom and we were extremely comfortable. We could see whales while we sat in the bed! A casual atmosphere with incredible hosts who took care of our every need. Elliston is a great little town and less "touristy" than Bona Vista. You will like it here. We were incredibly pleased.

My cousin, husband and I stayed overnight in Elliston on our way from Twillingate to St. John's. We didn't realize it was a self check in and when we arrived we didn't have the security code to get in to our room. My cousin's cellphone didn't work for the first 8 days of our vacation and not only did I not have internet service all day long, the battery on my laptop had run out. :( We called Charlotte from the phone inside the kitchen but she had an appointment so wasn't able to pick up. Just as we pulled up to the B&B a young woman out walking her dog, told us that there were 3 whales swimming just out front of the B&B eating Capelin. It was WONDERFUL!!!! We walked as close as we could get (which was wonderfully close) and stood in awe. It's the closest I've ever been to a whale and a fantastic experience. They were there the next day as well and you could actually see them from the front deck of the B&B. So....we now realized we needed internet service in order to get our security code so we drove down to Wilbur Hobbs's 'Home from the Ice Floes Craft Shop' (A GREAT store!!!) and told our sad tale to Wilbur who was a wonderful help. He showed me where to plug my laptop in and gave me the password for the internet. He gave me a peppermint, a cookie and a cold glass of water. LOL! He was awesome. It would have been really nice if we'd been sent the security code the day before check in or a heads up that it would be sent With our security code in hand, we returned to the B&B and got in to our room, which was the King unit complete with microwave, coffee maker and small fridge. There is a nice comfortable sitting room and kitchen downstairs (which you can also make use of) and also a laundry area where you can do your own laundry for free which is much appreciated to tourists! :) If you leave your windows open at night you can hear the ocean! The King Suite was $150/night and my cousin stayed in the Great Eastern Ensuite which went for $130/night. Breakfast was included and was very nice. Over easy eggs, sausages and Partridgeberry pancakes! Delicious! My only complaint was that breakfast was served at 7:45 which is a tad early for vacationers. Elliston is a great town and there is a ton to do. The Puffin Colony is a quick drive (and super cool), there is a Sealing Museum, root cellars, lovely places to walk, cute shops (Go to Wilbur Hobb's store for sure!!!!) and Bonavista and Trinity (both lovely towns) are very close and easy to get to for a day trip. Elliston is a great place to visit and the Bird Island B&B a great place to stay!

We stayed at this B&B for two nights. Outside it was cold and foggy most of the time, but inside it was warm, dry and comfortable. Charlotte is a wonderful hostess. She prepared hearty and delicious breakfasts, brightened up the dinning room with cheerfulness, and provided useful info about the area. Our room, the Great Eastern, is not large itself, but its bathroom is larger than usual. The room has a window facing the ocean. We could see some scattered icebergs from the room but missed a beautiful sunrise because we slept too well. The parking lot in front of the building is not enough for all guests, but we soon learned that it's OK to park along the street. Overall we found this B&B and Elliston very "Newfoundland" to us, and enjoyed our stay very much.

Catherine was gracious and left a note for us to make ourselves at home. The room was spacious and comfy. When we talked with Catherine to remind her we needed a vegan breakfast, she then stopped by to make sure that what she had to offer would work for us! We had delicious oatmeal with tons of fresh fruit, and toast with jam. It was literally five minutes from here to the puffin viewing site. We went there first before we even checked into our room, went back near sunset, and got up at 4:30 am to see if some puffins would fly across nearer to us. They didn't, but we did get to see plenty. We enjoyed Catherine, the location, the other guests, and the space. We would stay here again.

We stayed at Bird Island for our first three nights in Newfoundland, and it was a great introduction. Our room was comfortable and there’s a living room (complete with an interesting library) for guest use. We really enjoyed chatting with the woman who came in to cook our good breakfasts. We loved sitting on the front porch looking at the ocean across the road, and the walk down to the poignant sealing monument.

You don't have to go far to eat. There is a restaurant right next door and another one about 2 blocks away. The views are lovely from the house and the breakfast is very nice (prepared by Donna who is a lovely woman to talk with). The bed was very high.
