We booked a night at the Duckworth at the last minute for our last full night in St John's. The location is great as it's right in the heart of downtown, if that's what you're looking for. Parking our car wasn't an issue for us, there's free parking on the street after 6pm, just be careful in the morning when rates resume at 8am.
Our main issue with the room (404) in our case was the lack of air conditioning. It was quite the scorcher the day we stayed and even though it had cooled right down by night there was no cooling in sight for our little room, even though there were two fans and we had left the window wide open all night. The building is a hundred years old so apparently it can't run AC reliably.
Our room was clean and cozy, the staff was friendly and the continental breakfast had a good selection of bread, in house bake goods, fruit, yogurt and beverages.
With the exception of the heat it would have been a pretty good stay.
