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

My wife and I recently stayed 2 wonderful nights. Our bedroom on the 3rd floor was huge, with a very comfortable bed, carpeted and sitting area. The bathroom was the size of a small bedroom with a huge cast iron clawed leg tub and a separate shower. The breakfasts were superb. Both Janet and Gary are wonderful hosts and very... More

What an amazing B and B! My family booked all three rooms in early July and were amazed by the beauty of this B and B, even the 3 children wanted to stay longer! The house is a restored classic heritage house, reminiscent of the 'painted ladies' in San Francisco. Great location, walkable to most places in St Johns. Close... More

We stayed here for 2 days and had an amazing time. The location is perfect.... everything/bars/restaurants/coffee shops/walking trails/etc is within a 5-20 minute walk.... Gary/Janet spent a ton of time with us patiently answering all of our questions, great hosts! Excellent/large room with great breakfasts.... We'll be back next year!

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
