Just what the doctor ordered at the end of a long drive on a foggy evening. Your host Daphne is a character that knows exactly how to treat guests. Rooms comfortable and well appointed and breakfast just what you need. The peace and quiet exactly what you need for a good nights sleep. Highly recommended

Stayed one night, Daphne and her partner are great. Beautifully renovated space with use of a great living room and main floor space. Well supplied. Main criticism is very cramped bedroom and bathroom with no place to set suitcases and no counter or shelf in small WC to even place the toothbrushes, never mind a travel case with personal supplies....

A beautiful continental breakfast was provided each morning of...

The common areas were well appointed and clean. The continental breakfast was satisfying. We spent a great evening chatting with the operators, both of whom were very...

Recently I had the pleasure of staying at Castle Landing. WOW what a beautiful place. Upon arrival I was greeted by a gracious and friendly hostess who accommodated my simplest requests.

We spent only one night at Castle Landing during July 2013. AND, we were delighted that we had chosen this Bed and Breakfast to take our Norwegian family to on a quick tour of St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary and that area of our Province. The warm, friendly reception was the first thing we noted; not only did we get a...

What a hidden Treasure in Freshwater/Placentia! If you're looking for something a little different away from home Castle Landing is ideal. From the time we walked in we were greeted by a friendly smile and the room was delightful. It was nice staying at a place with such character. We had free wireless, free phone calls and that was a...

“Some rooms are larger with full baths; while, other, just as comfortable, are somewhat smaller with showers. All have private washroom facilities--certainly not always the case with B & B's. Ask if this is particularly important to you.”
