Just returned from 6 nights in St. John's, all spent at the Banberry. Elizabeth, the owner/proprietor, is a positively lovely person, warm and accommodating, without being intrusive (though occasionally a bit absent-minded). The breakfasts are very good, and she is very flexible with eating times. It's easy to feel comfortable wandering anywhere in the house, and all the staff are very friendly. The home itself is gorgeous, basically a classic Heritage property--high ceilings, wood floors everywhere, period mouldings and furnishings, fireplaces in many rooms. Ample parking is available across the street at MooMoo's (a popular ice cream venue). The Banberry is only a few blocks uphill from the bustle of downtown, and only a few blocks from the Rooms (which was a bit disappointing, I must admit, as the exhibits were rather sparse, and the art mediocre). The price was very reasonable for what we got. I'd definitely stay there again.
