This was a great hotel, full of history and charm. It was a wonderful location, right downtown and a block from George Street. It is an older facility, but the rooms are very clean, just a little dated. Very friendly staff. I would recommend a stay here for sure.

Do not book any other hotel in St. Johns. Our stay here was perfect. A hotel with character. Little things like complimentary bottled water, and an incredibly friendly and helpful staff made it a great place to stay - thanks Alana! As well, the breakfast (included) was excellent. There was lots of fruit (grapes, blueberries, pineapple, melon, apples, bananas, etc.),... More

Stayed here for three nights in July 2015. could not have picked a better location. We could walk to everyplace downtown and we even walked to Quidi Vidi and Signal Hill. We had a deluxe King room, it was huge, clean and had a big bathroom. It overlooked the atrium in the back of the building which, I guess, could... More

We were planning on staying in St. John's 2 nites but the fog came in combined with runway issues and we had to stay 2 more nites.

This is an excellent place to stay for both the quality of the accommodation and location close to George Street Pubs and shops in the old town section of St John's NL as well as being across from the harbor.

We were spending the last three nights of our trip to Newfoundland so we decided to stay somewhere well located and upscale. We had been in a several B & B's which had their charms, but wanted a traditional hotel for the end of the trip. Our room was extremely spacious with rustic charm. Well equipped with a fridge (to...

Stayed on third floor with a view of the docks if you tilted your head a certain way out the window. Easy parking. An excellent starting point to walking the colourful and historic streets, dock area and boat tours of St. John's which is entertainment in itself as well as partaking in the many excellent restaurants in the down town...

Stayed here for three nights recently and have nothing but good things to say about the hotel and staff.
