I found this Inn on Trip Advisor and read the reviews. It sounded liike just what we needed. I was planning a trip to Newfoundland for me and my 84-year-old mom. Neither of us had been to St. John's before so we wanted something out of the ordinary, central and special. We got all of this. Our host, Karen, put on terrific breakfast spreads up in the third floor kitchen with the view of the harbour.
We stayed twice so had two differen rooms-Admiral's Cove and Sweet Bay. Admiral's Cove was HUGE with loads of light coming in. The bathroom was a bit pokey and had some quirks with the floor but was fine. Sweet Bay was very nice with a pleasant view of the harbour. It was directly below the "other" kitchen which seems set up solely for great views and to keep everyone's drinks cold.
Newfoundland is not easy to get to from Victoria BC but I definitely plan to go back with my husband and stay at The Roses. When I got home, I found out that a young friend from work had also just returned from Newfoundland, had stayed at The Roses and loved it as well.
