I got in at the last minute and I was glad I did. Mary and Louis took care of me like I was a guest, and not a customer. For travelling alone for the first time to St. John's, I was made to feel at home. It was a convenient location to go everywhere, and if I didnt know how to get there, Mary or Louis just took me there :D. Tessa was such a help as well, and very friendly.

Room Tip: Comfy beds and private baths, and awesome homemade breakfasts!

Our stay at Cantwell House was wonderful for several reasons, but the top one was the ever helpful, always friendly and welcoming owner, Mary. She makes every guest feel like family and makes the entire Bed and Breakfast feel like your own home.

Room Tip: Room 3 is bright and airy, Room 4 is lovely and large, but on the street.

While in Australia, we made our booking directly with Cantwell House and were definitely not disappointed. Mary and Louis were extremely friendly and hospital.
Our intention was to start our trip visiting each province and St John's was the beginning with three nights at Cantwell House.

Cantwell House is an older style building with three levels. The rooms are large and homely. Within a short time of arriving, our hosts took us to a country western concert at the nearby Gower United Church. The weather was cool with light showers however we took very opportunity possible to see as much as St John's as possible.

Each morning, we had a lovely home cooked breakfast as this is a B&B.

The view of the harbour was fantastic. The house was withing walking distance to downtown and most attractions. The hosts were very informative about things to see and do. Would highly recommend Cantwell House B & B.

Our host Mary was gracious and helpful. The accommodations were tidy, comfortable and spacious. The room we stayed in was great with a good mattress on the foldaway couch. The two breakfast's were generous in their portions and featured a wide variety of local foods as well as normal breakfast staples. A highlight were the fresh baked goods and fruits. Location is good as you are walking distance to the downtown and not too far from any of the tourist attractions of St. John's. We truly felt at home during our stayeat Cantwell House
