We prefer the charm of a "boutique" hotel and we were so happy with our decision to stay here for a weekend in July. St.John's has a very friendly food and plenty of attractions within a walking distance(i.e. great bars and food). Everything in St.Johns is close. Our room looked right onto Water St. comfortable, clean, spacious. The decor is... More

Wonderful spacious updated room with huge bathroom and sitting area. Only minor down was TV did not work well. Not a big deal for us. Very little noise on third floor. Brick walls, electric blinds, modern bathroom. Would definitely stay again.

I've stayed here numerous times over the years, have had superb service every stay and customer service is what you get. This spot gets overlooked as it's not on most hotel search sites. Rates are reasonable for the area just need to book on their website. Rooms are stunning, they've done an excellent job bringing these rooms up to date.... More

Good options, fresh food, friendly service. We went for dinner and were not staying at the hotel part. We can't speak for the hotel or answer questions about it. But dinner was great and we ate there twice during our four days in St Johns.

We were four women traveling by bicycle in Newfoundland for three weeks so our "needs" were a bit different than the average customer. We stayed at Blue when we first arrived and at the end of our cycle tour totaling 7 days there overall. They could not have been more accommodating! Jason, the owner, greeted us when we arrived with... More

The Blue on Water hotel is a boutique, above a restaurant/bar. It is right on Water Street right in the heart of the action - just one block from George St. Rooms are large (couch and sitting area) and we had a huge bathroom with a full soaker tub and a walk in shower. If your window fronts on Water... More

We stayed in both the Gryphon Loft and the hotel. The style is lovely and fun. I found the service to be excellent with great communication from the managers about our upcoming stay and checking on us while we were off site at the loft. Both locations are wonderful and my family loved our stays here.

The room was gorgeous, but you had to enter through a bar. The view out the window was of the ventilator for the kitchen. They never told us that the only parking cost $25 per night. Restaurant was overpriced. Ate 1st night in bar. Poutin was so salty it was inedible. Had reservations for 4 nights, checked out after only... More

Spent 6 nights at Blue on Water. I can't say enough things about this place. Fabulous newly renovated, huge room with a spa like bathroom, Keurig coffee maker, fridge, couch and coffee table and the comfiest beds with the best linens and pillows making it hard to get up in the morning. But they also have the best food, especially... More

Arriving in the evening to find our booked hotel over booked, (something we understand now often happens in summer conference season), By accident we rang this hotel as it was a small boutique we were delighted to get a last minute cancellation. This hotels decor is modern edge with at times an industrial look, and other corners a table with... More
