Stayed here a few weeks ago for just one night. the room was immaculate and elegant. We had room 1, which had cathedral ceiling over the bed which was super comfortable, a huge chandelier, the bathroom had a huge claw foot tub!! & breakfast cooked to perfection in the morning! It was awesome!!

Incredible stained glass windows. Leaded windows. It was a step back in time. Almost expected to see servants rushing aro0und behind the staircase. Very quiet, very private. The private parking was a surprise street.

Clean room, nice hot breakfast, perfect location. Like how does it get any better? Deadly quiet, the walks looked to be 18 " thick with that incredible old plaster and beveled glass. I can't imagine what a place like this must cost to heat in Newfoundland but it was toasty warm

This is my second time staying at Cabot House. The rooms on the second floor are beautifully decorated and appointed, huge beds, comfortable easy chairs. Mikhail will cook you a large breakfast, enough to keep you going for hours and the place is very well-located. I received a list of nearby restaurants and their phone numbers, information about the B&B... More

This property is worth a stay just to look at the stained glass, leaded glass, magnificent ceilings and a touch of how the ruling classes lived at the turn of the last century. I scanned through some of the earlier reviews and wonder what people expect? My room was massive, My condo in downtown Toronto could pretty much fit into... More

This B&B is a grim experience. Our room was very small located under noisy stairs with grubby rug and bed spread and sealed windows. The tiny bathroom did not even have space for a towel rack and no room to set down toiletries. The staff, obviously not owners, perhaps student caretakers, plunked down unattractive breakfasts without any pleasantries. Staff were... More

We stayed for a week. The place was clean with a charming atmosphere. No complaints about the service. A decent breakfast to start the day. Great location. We enjoyed how quiet the place is; we were able to relax once back from our long walks.

My boyfriend and I just stayed here on the weekend. For 3 nights.. We arrived in the afternoon and like everyone else, we received our keys and info in an envelope. Here begins the less than Nfld experience. We entered the door and the people working there don't utter a word to us. We have no idea where to go.... More

This place should NOT be listed as a B&B as it is more a dirty and grey, low income apartment building. There isn't enough space here to list all the things wrong with this place. BEWARE ! If your looking for a pleasant experience and stay.......keep driving as there are many other really nice and "real" B & Bs in... More

The Cabot House is a clean, quiet B&B in a good location in St. John's. Unlike other B&B places, the owners are somewhere else and the house is operated by, according to the notes, a student who comes and goes. We found him friendly but quite often we would want to ask a question and found no one in the... More
