Felt comfortable from the beginning. Hosts Janet and Gary went above and beyond to make us feel at home. This was the first time we decided to try B and B's and would definitely recommend them. Much better than a hotel. I was just recently diagnosed celiac and was nervous traveling for the first time but Janet went as far... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights in May 2015. We found the staff welcoming and informative, the rooms clean, simple and comfortable, the breakfast food tasty and varied - and the location convenient.

We were spending an extended weekend in the St. John's area in late April 2015 and planned to spend an evening experiencing downtown St. John's, but we decided to wait to book a hotel til we were there. On the Friday, we had lunch at Coffee Matters, and our host saw the At Wit's Inn out the window across the... More

My partner and I stayed at At Wit's Inn on October, 2014, after attending a close friend's wedding outside St. John's. We decided to spend the last night of our trip in a romantic downtown location, and chose At Wit's Inn. It was absolutely PERFECT! The hosts were extremely friendly, polite, and accommodating - even allowing us to print our... More

I highly recommend at Wit's Inn. The owners went out of the way to provide wonderful home cooked breakfasts that fit my food allergies and they were excellent at helping my mother as well. The room was extremely well cleaned and nicely decorated and the en suite bathroom was a lovely addition. The central location was walking distance from both... More

From the experience of our recent getaway, we can affirm the many positive comments made on this site by the previous reviewers of the At Wit's Inn in downtown St. John's. Garry and Janet work very well together to extend a welcoming introduction to their very spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed B & B accommodation. When the central downtown... More

Excellent stay with At Wit’s Inn! Gary & Janet were knowledgeable and accommodating hosts. During our three-night stay, we appreciated the attention to detail with the very clean premises, delicious breakfasts and short walking distance to downtown amenities and venues.

I came into St John's to give a seminar at Memorial University, Had not ever been here before and the university recommended this establishment. I am not usually a B&B person (I'm solitary and reserved) but I have to say this was an extremely relaxing place to stay. It was nice to feel like you were coming 'home' at night,... More
