What a great experience Janet and Gary gave us as hosts of the Wit Inn. We could not wait to get to the dining room each morning anticipating the fresh baked muffins or the banana bread along with a full breakfast and lots of great coffee. Great atmosphere instantly felt at home. If you are travelling to St. John Nfld.... More

The Wit's Inn is an absolutely gorgeous old house, and surprisingly also extremely quiet; wouldn't know whether there was someone in the adjacent room or on the next floor. We stayed there for 6 nights and were lucky to enjoy a variety of breakfast, all different and delicious. The Wit's Inn is close to everything. Just across from a nice... More

We stayed here in October for 2 nights, and everything about this B&B was perfectly done! the owners are amazingly kind people and they go out of their way to provide anything you might need or want during your stay. Janet makes the best breakfasts each morning with something freshly baked to go along with it. The rooms are excellent... More

We stayed at seven B&Bs during our road trip to the East Coast and this was our least favourite. Not that it was a bad experience, but we didn't feel it merits the glowing reviews it receives on Tripadvisor. We were in Room 4 at the top of two steep staircases. The room was large, clean and comfortable, as was... More

We had a couple of really comfortable night's stay at this well located B & B. Our hosts, Janet and Garry were great ambassadors of the city and gave us some good advise on highlights to hit. Our room was on the 3rd floor, so getting up with 2 large suitcases was interesting, but our room was so quaint and... More

While at a conference, I stayed 4 days in this beautiful historic, immaculately clean and immensely comfortable B & B. Janet and Garry are welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts are varied and delicious; fresh fruit salad with yogurt, fresh baked bread, and homemade jam along with eggs and ham; with an option of continental if you need to leave the... More

We had a fabulous stay at the At Wit's Inn B&B. Located near downtown and major bus routes. Janet and Garry were wonderful hosts and very helpful. The breakfasts were delicious. Our stay was very comfortable and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

This was the first time I stayed at a B&B and was a little nervous about it not knowing what to expect, but it was such a great experience. We were in room 2 and unfortunately were not able to stay at the B&B the whole time since it was already booked for the rest of the week. The room... More

We stayed 2 nights in early June. This B & B has the perfect location for investigating the city. The well renowned jellybean houses are mere steps away. The B & B was clean and we had a room on the second floor with twin beds, which were very comfortable. Our hosts were informative regarding restaurants and sights to be... More
