My husband and I stayed at this charming B & B for three nights while visiting St. John's and area. It was simply lovely!! Janet and James exuded such warmth and hospitality, making our stay really quite comfortable. They were also more than accommodating of dietary allergies for our breakfast. So appreciated!! Highly recommend At Wit's Inn!!!

At Wit's Inn was our first stop during a 17-day trip to Newfoundland and Labrador and a perfect destination to get our holiday off to a great start. We were a retired couple traveling with our two adult daughters. Room #1 with its two single beds was perfect for the girls and my husband and I appreciated the spaciousness of... More

Only stayed one night, but it was a breath of fresh air after staying at the Delta for the previous two nights. Amazingly comfortable beds and a very nice host. No A/C, so it did get a bit hot at night, but there are fans in the rooms.

We stayed two nights At Wit's End, following one night at the Sheraton Hotel, which I admit was also very comfortable, with a piano you can play. You feel immediately at home. Both are at the same end of town, not that big a town, and very convenient to everything. Our first stop was the Terry Fox Memorial. Janet and... More

This B and B is ideally located , close to the rooms as well as downtown St. John's; in an area with many beautiful houses. The B and B is very elegant and it speaks for itself. The hostess is very professional and served a delicious breakfast. We were very pleased with the visit and recommend it.

We stayed at this B&B for three nights in St. John's. Janet and Gary (and Beth!) were very friendly, welcoming and very helpful! It's in a wonderful location - right near downtown and very close to a popular location for tourists and locals - Signal Hill. A very beautiful, impeccably kept old house. A quite location, as it has 3... More

This was our first trip to Newfoundland and we spent 3 nights here. Janet and Gary were terrific hosts and the breakfasts were great. The inn is convenient to downtown restaurants.

Felt comfortable from the beginning. Hosts Janet and Gary went above and beyond to make us feel at home. This was the first time we decided to try B and B's and would definitely recommend them. Much better than a hotel. I was just recently diagnosed celiac and was nervous traveling for the first time but Janet went as far... More
