Our fight was delayed and we missed our first night. We arrived mid morning, Janet had the table set and fixed us an amazing breakfast. Gary came up and shared ideas of how we should spend our day. We fell in love with the house and this wonderful friendly couple. In fact, we changed our plans and returned to At... More

This was my second visit and it completely lived up to expectations. Last time I was here it was mid winter and At Wit's was a very cosy haven. This time it was high summer and hot outside but cool and refreshing indoors. The house is a wonderful example of a St John's weatherboarded town house with many original features... More

My daughter and I shared a room on our first night in Newfondland. The B & B is super clean and comfortable. Perfect location - a walking distance to great restautrants and shops. The owners are super-friendly. We let the owners know ahead of time that we are gluten-intolerant and they prepared an amazing breakfast of the most delicious blueberry... More

The bed and breakfast is centrally located downtown and within walking distance of George street, Signal Hill and Bannerman Park. The hosts were very friendly and provided you with information about the area and places to see. The eggs benedict we had on Saturday were fabulous.

We stayed at this lovely B&B in Feb and really enjoyed the experience. Janet (our host) was very hospitable to us. Our bedroom on the third floor was very nice with a very comfy bed. Breakfast was served in a warm and inviting dining room. I would recommend this B&B especially for visitors who would like to be close to... More

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
