I was really happy that we booked this facility. The location is great; just off Signal Hill and a few blocks from Duckworth and Water Streets. We could walk through the downtown area and many restaurants and shops without having to get in the car and it's close enough to cab it if we wanted to go out for the... More

We had a premium room...nothing special. This is a hotel with a cheap continental breakfast that the desk clerk has to take care of while s/he checks people out. Ran out of food items 2 days out of 3. Advertises as a B&B but is really a hotel with 3 floors and no elevators. Advertises as Canada Select 4 stars... More

The location is good, not great, a bit off the beaten track. I have been staying there for an annual trip and the hotel has slowly gone down hill. The manager is friendly, the breakfast very good, and the room requires climbing up to the third floor on very steep stairs. Some of the furniture including the bed need replacement.

Most of the reviews here are fair but a couple are excessively harsh. We live in a newish house and they just are not built solidly anymore so I agree that the walls are very thin. Overall they try to stagger out guests so, for example, the kitchen is locked when you are renting rooms only so you don't get... More

The room was very clean and comfortable and the self-serve breakfast was quite good. Wifi worked great. All of the staff that we dealt with were friendly and helpful. It's very central and we were able to walk to all of the places that we wanted to see and there's a nice deck out back to unwind with a glass... More

Just spent 3 nights here and found it very respectable. Clean, new build, free NA phone calls, simple but sufficient breakfast and reasonably easy walk to downtown. Could have used some hot eggs at breakfast but just a preference. Recommend. Price before 13% HST and 4 % St. John's tax was $160 which was a bit high. By the way,... More

Check in was quick and efficient, great location for sightseeing. The 2nd floor room was small but contained everything we needed. We regularly used the common room on the 2nd floor to socialize with friends - had a great visit, would return in a heartbeat.

Walls are paper thin. Booking was messed up. Paid for upgraded room and spent first night in a room that was never even intended to hold hotel guests! Location is OK. Wouldn't go back. No restaurant on site.

Noisy on the ground floor right under the stairs. The overhead light is too dim to read by and no lights beside the bed. The chair is for a dinner table so not comfortable reading. Clean. TV accepts HDMI input.

We stayed in Homtel a couple of years ago and found the service very good. We went back over the Christmas period. Using the three bedrooms in the one property we had use of the kitchen,dining room and living room. This enabled us to cook a traditional Christmas lunch.
