This was one of the few places I could get last-minute, but I think it worked out for the best. It's a nice house and my room, at least, was modern and very clean. Unfortunately it was on the top floor, which was annoying to have to carry my suitcase up and down. Breakfast was in the basement and was... More

Wonderful room with fabulous view. Valentine the caretaker was accommodating and cooked a delicious breakfast. Location fabulous..close to the down town core. The bed was comfy and the towels were thick and plentiful.

I'd come for a conference, all the downtown hotels were booked and I'd never stayed in a B&B before, most of these were booked too and I had to do some bouncing around. First stop was the Abba Inn. I found it on Trip Advisor. Not what I had expected given reviews I read. My room was large, clean, and... More

The location of Abba inn is smack on the middle of Saint John's. Room #5 has a terrific view of the harbour, and a comfortable bed and private very adequate bath. Breakfast is good. The only downside is the caretaker is not from the area and lacks the friendly inviting personality that most of the locals provide.

My family stayed at the abba inn in May and were very disappointed. The cleaninesss of the room was very low and the washroom was very dirty. for a location in the center of the downtown we were simply expecting more and will not stay here again. It has certainly gone down hill. The staff were not engaging and actually... More

My sister and I stayed in the Abba Inn B&B at the end of April while we were citing St. John's. The Inn is in a great location as it is in walking distance to downtown, so there are a lot of great restaurants and shops around. The room that we had was very spacious with 2 single beds, and... More

Very cozy and nice rooms, good breakfast and the caretaker Valentine is accommodating and welcoming. The room with jacuzzi and king size bed overlooking Queens Rd is large and has a beautiful view of the harbour. Parking available for free across the B&B but make sure to find out if there is a parking ban. There are no signs and... More

I gather they have recently shifted to a continental breakfast. That was fine for me and gave me more flexibility. Property was very well laid out, back rooms likely quieter and front rooms having better views. Quiet clean, my room had a king size bed which was quite comfy. I didn't see other rooms as I think I was the... More

If you have any physical problems this mini-hotel is not for you. The front steps were extremely steep and after dragging my suitcase up the stairs, it took over 15 minutes to get an answer regarding my room. No problem with the room (on the third floor). Great location- close to the downtown. It was difficult to communicate with the... More

Joseph B, Front Office Manager at Abba Inn Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review

We are glad this lady liked our location and rooms. The entry is 4 feet above sidewalk level. The housing entry in the historic properties area has pretty much remained the same since the 1800's. There are no B&Bs / Inns in the historic proprieties area suitable for physically challenged people This review was a wake up call. The more... More
