Our "room" was a series of connected spaces: bedroom, kitchen, sitting room and bath. We arrived late and left early and so did not fully enjoy the space, but admired it just the same. Our beds were very comfortable and the large bath & shower were great. Hosts Ralph & Karen helped with luggage, restaurant recommendations (& menus) and answered... More

This was a perfect B&B experience for us! The house is spacious and beautifully and lovingly restored, furnished with modern comforts and amenities and still an historic feel. The owners were so gracious and welcoming that you truly felt you were in a home rather than a public lodging. The breakfast was just wonderful with lots of fresh fruit and... More

We were here for 2 nights in August as part of a 3 week tour of Eastern Canada and really enjoyed our stay. The Inn is beautiful and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners, who were more than happy to make us a pot of tea on arrival! Our family size room was great, very spacious... More

We arrived from the US, late, in a pouring rain, and left shortly after breakfast....it just wasn't enough time. This fine, large property is exquisitely furnished, the owners were very hospitable, and the bedding and breakfast were very good. Sadly, we had lots to see in NB, NS, and PEI, and couldn't spend more time at the Homeport, but we... More

If you want perfection go stay at the Hilton; however if you want to be truly comfortable and see St. John for its true splendour then you should stay here. Homeport is perched high up on a hill overlooking St. John and consists of two incredibly old grand homes that were properly joined by a link that Ralph had built... More

Homeport Historic Inn in Saint John NB is a charming property, with commanding views and lovingly very well kept by proprietor, Ralph. We found it very well located as regards proximity to Saint John downtown and the awe-inspiring natural attraction known as the Reversing Rapids. Great value for money for this location so close to a major North American city.... More

Great Location in St. John. Wonderful breakfast. Ralph, our host, showed us how to walk into the center of the city along the shore. Views from the "Widow's Walk" of the whole harbor. Our room was inexpensive and beautifully historically maintained. Ralph can share stories of local politics, history, and places to eat and visit. We biked the Fundy Trail... More

The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The owners were extremely helpful in explaining directions around the city. Breakfast was delicious. There was a nice collection of DVDs to watch. There is also a really nice view of the city from here.

We stayed one night and were upgraded due to the construction work on Douglas avenue. The room, Fort Latour, was very comfortable and we were even found feather pillows as we do not like artificial ones. The bathroom was wonderful with very nice toiletries. Unfortunately we do not find urban landscapes very attractive and the flyover and railway tracks were... More

Be aware that this is an old inn with lots of nooks & craneys and plenty of ambiance, not one of the stark modern hotels. We stayed here in the Veranda Room for two nights in late June. The room was large, with a great view of the harbor. The furnishings were comfortable and appropriate for the decor of the... More

Hello B R traveller Thank you for the kind review of your visit this June. we do try to keep the place looking tip top with summer restoration and ongoing maintainence well under way now that the late spring has left us and the house is having a chance to dry out.
