This place could give the Fairmont hotels a run for their money (and I've stayed in several). From the time we arrived (check in is at the bar...works for me:-) to the time we left we received excellent service. The bar/check in gal even came out to our car to help with our luggage! Which is probably the only downside... More

Went there for dinner with my boyfriend. The menu was very confusing and the waitress didn't seen to know anything about the specials. Decided to just drink our mojitos and go somewhere else. They were rather expensive and I wouldn't mind only they were terrible. They taste like lemon juice and that's it. When I told the server this she... More

Blue on Water is in the very heart of the tourist area of downtown St John's, one street up from the harbour. The restaurant and bar on the ground floor are hip and popular, with a bright and modern design. The breakfast menu ( breakfast not included) is creative if pricey. We stayed for 3 nights in a double queen... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Blue on Water for one night. We had a stopover at the St. John's airport and our flight home was delayed for a day. We'd been to the restaurant many times for their fabulous brunch, so we thought we'd give the hotel a try. Best idea ever! The service we received was above... More

Although the rooms are nicely appointed. As other reviewers have stated, it is a very noisy hotel and we could hear the bar til way past midnight as well as other guests moving around in their rooms. On top of that, the only window (more of a skylight) had no blinds so the bright sun came shining in on us... More

This was our first time at Blue, and when we walked through the door we were pleasantly surprised by the modern decor, it was beautiful. We stood in the entry for about 5 minutes and watched 3 servers walk past us, look at us, acknowledge us, but make no effort to see if we needed a table or had a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here a week ago for our anniversary. The rooms are very small. I loved the decor. The furnishings and accessories were beautiful. The downfall is this hotel has walls that seem to be paper thin. I just couldn't sleep most of the night or following morning because of the noise. it wasn't that the people... More

I saw this place online and took a chance...checked into the hotel in the bar?!@. A really neat spot...amazing rooms with modern deco with exposed brick/high quality. The bar is really nice. The food is very flavourful...ask lots of questions before you order...some stuff is out of this world...others things are just okay (chicken). My flight was cancelled and it... More

Awesome decor, excellent food, really nice bar! The staff are awesome! Love the huge shower and bath in the rooms and gone heated floor!! It's our close to home " get away" and we stay there a few times a year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else... Although the parking selection isn't the greatest in downtown St Johns, it's...
