We stayed at this B&B for three nights in St. John's. Janet and Gary (and Beth!) were very friendly, welcoming and very helpful! It's in a wonderful location - right near downtown and very close to a popular location for tourists and locals - Signal Hill. A very beautiful, impeccably kept old house. A quite location, as it has 3... More

This was our first trip to Newfoundland and we spent 3 nights here. Janet and Gary were terrific hosts and the breakfasts were great. The inn is convenient to downtown restaurants. Having free street parking was a real plus. Our room was comfortable and even though it was hot the fans that were provided made it OK for sleeping once... More

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
