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

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!
