After reading some of the negative reviews of this place I was a little worried about our upcoming stay for 9 days. However all those were put to rest when I arrived. Yes it's a little odd checking in at a bar full of people at 930 on a Friday night but being from nyc I thought it was perfect.... More

The room was amazing-clean, bright, beautiful decor and the bed was luxurious. The staff were professional and were friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend this hotel and look forward to a return there again. You do NL tourism well. Congratulations owners and staff.

Horrible. Loud, smelly, and ugly. I would not stay here again. Our room was right on Water Street, which is extremely loud. Could not sleep. Also the room smells like mildew and the most caustic carpet freshener known to man.

Blue on Water is a small 11 bedroom boutique hotel located on Water Street in downtown St Johns. Although small and quite intimate, it boats a super bar (where you check in on arrival) and a great little restaurant. The rooms are bright, modern and very comfortable. The bathrooms are well stocked, clean and tidy. Prices are reasonable and the... More

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
