Great breakfast. Comfortable bed. Great host. Excellent location. I he room was small but I knew that before I went there as the owner explained that he only had one room left and that it was small. But it had a bathroom and closet.

The best bed and the best breakfast in NL! Near the puffins, very good muffins (pun intended), walking distance to the best restaurant in Elliston, charming hosts, in short, I highly recommend this place!

I originally was not going to go to Bonavista during my Newfoundland trip, but a fellow tourist I met suggested that I go. So I booked a one night's stay at Meem's at Elliston which is only a 10 minute drive from Bonavista. The place was a little hard to find and be wary of taking Route 238. There is...

We really did not enjoy our stay here. The owners fight in front of you, it's kind of awkward to say the least...at one point, the wife, Maila actually yelled at us for something we did on accident. They also "kindly" offered us dinner and to use their washer and dryer, and then just as "kindly", they charged us $10...

This is more a personal vendetta than a review. Quite shocking, yet almost comical. Real proof that you can't please everybody, or a complete ruse? Baffled.

We stayed here last weekend, and had such a great experience, we booked again for next year. My Family has been visiting this area of the province for many years and the hospitality here was so warm and felt just like home. The breakfasts, conversation and wonderful owners made the visit special for us, we look forward to returning.

The Meems B&B in Elliston provided a convenient location for touring the bonavista area. Rashid and Maila were knowledgeable about the area and Rashid cooked us an authentic and delicious east Indian dinner. Breakfast of local blueberry pancakes was also delicious. We appreciated that they were accommodating to our request to an unforseen circumstance at the B&B.

The hosts Maila and Rashid are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel at home. They serve tasty homemade breakfasts and place fresh flowers in every room. Their B&B is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Their beds are by far the best we have come across during our two week stay in Newfoundland. Meems Elliston...

This was a wonderful, clean and friendly B&B, with very helpful hosts. Provided an excellent breakfast, made to order. Near the puffins, and away from the relative hustle of Bonavista. If you decide to stay here, don't use Google Maps or Waze to find the location of 5 Catalina Rd, Elliston. Both will redirect you to a OLD Catalina Road,...

Rashid and Maila went out of their way to accommodate us! The room was lovely, great bed and fresh flowers were awaiting us. So closed to the Ice Bergs and Puffins too. Loved the art that was in the little hamlet , sculptures and paintings, a nice surprise. Not to be missed.
