This was our home for the two first nights of our Newfoundland visit. The hotel is very nice, converted from an old fishery warehouse (No smells left......), with a lot of wood used (Some of it from the original building) and very attractive interior decorations. The hotel is literally on the harbour front and one minute's walk from the famous... More

Loved our stay here - parking was easy, checkin easy, our room was large. The decor is a little dated but all clean and this is a 3 star hotel, so no complaints. The included breakfast was great - loads of fresh fruit, bagels, toast, boiled eggs, juice, tea choices and coffee. Also pastries for those so inclined. The location... More

Front desk very helpful and breakfast top notch. Love the towel warmer in bathroom. Central and within walking distance of George St. A great way... More

Very quaint and historic hotel in the heart of downtown St John's. The room was beautiful and clean with lots of wood. Great location with lots of parking which is good because you can leave your car and enjoy all the shopping and dining downtown. Every type of restaurant imaginable. Staff were great as well.

Right in the middle of downtown St. John's on the waterfront. Our room was rustic and clean. Got stuck in the elevator (staff was quick to un-jam the door), so I can check that one off my bucket list LOL. Beautiful courtyard cafe/restaurant/bar and the shops, pubs and restaurants of downtown St. John's are right out the back door. Would... More

This is a historic building that has been updated to a comfortable modern Inn. There are old beams and brick walls. The hotel is a little wilted around the edges but does not effect the comfort or the cleanliness of the rooms. The location is perfect as you can walk to bars, restaurants, shops and the waterfront. They offer free... More

The hotel's central location was ideal for our week-long stay. A block from George Street and lots of shopping an dining near by (walking distance). Lots of free parking. Rooms are spacious enough but a bit dark. Access to tub/shower poor; a step UP between the floor and the tub; too wide to step over and too narrow to stand... More

Went there at the end of May 2016 for a little romantic night. Was under the impression I ordered a Jacuzzi room to find out we only had gotten a Jet tub.
