YOUR PRIVATE ROOM BOOKING INCLUDES:

** Continental Breakfast - Served in our cheerful breakfast room with your choice of Keurig coffee or cup of tea is the perfect start to your day on The Edge of Avalon!

** Private Queen Room - Each queen room is designed for your comfort & convenience with pillow-topped mattress, plush duvet, 800+ thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, dressing/laptop table, luggage rack with towel hamper, ample USB ports, interesting books about NL, wardrobe, shower caddy, towels, 2 bottles of water and a hairdryer.

*** As the original structure of the former convent was not altered during our renovations, the bathrooms are shared. We intend to make changes in the future that include en suite bathrooms and Accessible rooms when we begin our “Second Stage Rebuild” so kindly stay tuned with our website & social media sites to learn about these future developments.

There is one full bathroom dedicated for Women and one for Men located on the same floor as the private guestrooms. The bathrooms are monitored and cleaned throughout the day and are equipped with seat cover dispensers for maximum sanitation. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and hand soap are also provided.

In order not to tie up the bathroom for other guest use, we ask that guests dress and do hair and makeup in their private rooms. We have made this convenient and comfortable by providing a shower caddy with a set of towels and compartment for personal items, a hairdryer, a dressing table, a towel hamper under the luggage rack for wet towels, and 3 types of mirrors including regular, zoom and full-length. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

** Wifi & Entertainment - High speed internet is provided throughout guesthouse and a 50" Smart TV is located in the guest lounge for your entertainment.

** Children's Park & Indoor Games - A public children's park and basketball court are located between The Convent Guesthouse and harbour (see Gallery photo). We also provide a variety of interesting indoor games and books for those rainy days.

** Private Business Office & Tourist Information - A private Business Office with computer, printer, tourist information and interactive guest comment board is available on the second floor for guest use. An iron & board is also provided in this room.

** Ample Parking Space - The Convent Guesthouse can easily accommodate a number of small and large vehicles, recreational boats, motorcycles and ATVs on our property and on the road in front of our property for free.
