Travellers' Choice
With a history of serving guests for over a decade, Russelltown Inn welcomes you with a tradition of Newfoundland hospitality, rich heritage, and all the conveniences a modern traveler requires. The Inn is located in the quiet, historic residential neighborhood of “Russelltown”, just minutes from Downtown Bonavista and within walking distance to the harbour, shops, museums, and an array of great restaurants. The Russelltown Inn is designed with you in mind, allowing guests the privacy of a hotel with the charm of a bed and breakfast. Rooms are located throughout the property in multiple restored heritage buildings. We've tailored each room, our hospitality and amenities to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible. We hope that our attention to detail shines through each moment of your stay. We are pleased to offer a breakfast menu developed by Red Seal Chef Katie Hayes of the Bonavista Social Club. Chef Hayes not only loves cooking with fresh Newfoundland ingredients but has developed a breakfast menu inspired by the same. Breakfast will feature Bonavista Social Club homemade bread baked daily from the only commercial wood-fired bread oven in Newfoundland and Labrador as well as fresh free-range eggs and Nanny Hayley's Jams & Jellies. These jams and jellies contain no preservatives and are made from recipes dating back to the mid 1800's. The recipes originated from the Cape Shore in Bonavista and were handed through the generations. All of Nanny Hayley's jams are made from wild berries, handpicked in the Bonavista area. Breakfast is included with your stay. Hiking, iceberg, whale and bird-watching nearby. Walking distance from historic sites, Garrick Theatre, restaurants and coffee shop.

After we booked our non-refundable, full-priced room, we were told via email that breakfast was not on offer and were told to check out local places for breakfast (90% of which were closed for the season). There was a boil order in place for tap water and nobody informed us of this, so we drank tap water not knowing we shouldn't have done so and only found out because we overheard locals talking about it when we found somewhere to have breakfast. The water pressure in the shower was really weak, so washing my hair was annoyingly tedious. There were no tissues, only an empty tissue box. And the shower didn't drain properly, so I was standing in 2 inches of soapy water for the duration of my shower. There were positives,too: the room itself was beautiful, the bed comfortable, the location quiet. We enjoyed our visit, but the attention to detail was definitely lacking and I felt swindled out of a promised breakfast.

Stayed here for a weekend getaway and had a wonderful time. We were in the Coster suite and it is beautiful and very clean. Loved the Dyson fan and the East Coast Glow products in the bathroom. It’s a great location and walking distance to all of the nice restaurants and stores in Bonavista.

We stayed at the Russelltown Inn, Lawrence Room for two nights. This room has its own entry. There are two rooms in a renovated barn. The Lawrence Room is the ground level room and there is a loft room upstairs which has its own entrance as well. The room was absolutely beautiful, there was everything in the room that you could possibly need. It is close to restaurants and cafes. They had contactless entry upon check in and departure. We had a very enjoyable stay! Will definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful stay at Russelltown Inn, in fact, our party of 4 had the entire inn to ourselves. It was clean, roomy, and comfortable, and our own personal cook came in every morning to provide delicious breakfasts. Bonavista is a beautiful area of NFLD to visit - I would highly recommend Russelltown Inn as headquarters.
