Stayed here for a night in February. The room was spacious with a large hot tub in the corner. Showers have multiple jets (which we have never seen before) and the old feed of the exposed beams almost take you back in time. Highly recommended for a getaway, relaxation, or if you need a place to stay while in town... More

Thank you! Your review nicely summed up a lot of what we feel is special about our hotel in just a few sentences.

Glad you enjoyed your stay and took the... More

Booked this on a whim to see a concert at the near by arena. Beautiful historic property. Had a room on the third floor, queen bed, Jacuzzi tub, and a little fireplace. The arched ceilings added to the old world charm. Very close to George Street, the main lobby doors locked after 11 and you have to swipe your key... More

We stayed in a King Executive room. It was cozy, not in a small way, but in a warm and inviting sort of way. The corner tub was clean and an addition that vastly separates this hotel from other rooms at the same price at hotels in the area such as the Sheraton and Marriott. This hotel is old (we... More

One of my all-time favourite hotels. Beautiful architecture and great amenities. The exposed wood beams created a rustic feel. It was great for a romantic weekend away. Growing up in Nfld, my husband was amazing that the museum held such a great hotel. Walking distance to everything. We were pleasantly surprised and would recommend this hotel over and over. We...

Stayed in room 215 for my 40th birthday with my husband. Absolutely beautiful. Staff upon check in were extremely friendly and very knowledgable of the area. The room was very cozy with a view of Water Street but was still very quiet. The bed was very comfortable with beautiful linens. Loved the jacuzzi in the room and the fireplace. The... More

We went out for my wife's birthday on January 17th. Room was great and location next to downtown restaurants and bars is no match to anywhere else. Thanks to Kelly again for getting us what we needed as usual
