“Excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

We were lucky enough to stay here for a week and were pleasantly surprised to have a lovely main floor of a house.It was very comfortable and had all the amenities we needed.Pat and Agnes were very helpful and have a great manager (Rita) who will help you in any way she can.She will give you suggestions and directions to places of interest nearby and is always ready for an interesting "chat".Very glad we found this location.Thanks Pat ,Agnes and Rita.

We had not planned to stay in Holyrood at all during our cross-province trip of Newfoundland this summer, but a few days into our vacation, the island was being threatened with the remnants of Hurricane Bill. So we postponed our drive to the coast of the southern Avalon Peninsula and drove to Holyrood to be away from the worst of the storm. It was already late afternoon, and the B&Bs we called were booked, so we tried Comerfords.

Pat, the owner, was quite friendly and welcoming, and I have to admit that the price was very cheap. For only $89, we got a one bedroom efficiency unit. But we found that it was run down and definitely in need of a good renovation. Pictures of our unit (#6) can be found on Comerford's website, and it is as dated as it looks, including the bright yellow bathroom fixtures. Decor aside, the linoleum floors were peeling in spots, and the couch in the living room had definitely seen better days. Most of the floor was covered in old, ugly carpeting. The bed was saggy, and the linens looked like they had been bought in the 1980s from Wal-Mart.

So although not horrible, and despite Pat's hospitality, this was, to be honest, our least favourite place during our two-week long trip. We found much better value at the various B&Bs we stayed at, and there's absolutely no comparison between Comerfords and the beautiful Mountain Range Cottages in Rocky Harbour (Gros Morne).

We were looking for a cabin or efficiency within about 30 minutes of St. John's and Witless Bay when we found Comerford's listing in the Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism Department's guide. We made the "reservation" by phone as we were driving east on theTCH, and it was such a wonderful bit of luck.

About 25 mins. from downtown St. John's, Comerfords has one, two, and three-bedroom completely furnished apartments at very reasonable prices. In 2002 my wife & I stayed here for the entire month of July, using it as a base for day trips throughout eastern Newfoundland. We made a return visit this past August for several days. The apartments are spotlessly clean and contain quality furniture and appliances. Everything you need for a comfortable stay and everything works as it should. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. (Of course, in Newfoundland, this is the norm). You would be hard-pressed to find better accomodations near St. John's.

This place was one of the most pleasant surprises I've come across in years. The units are large, clean and luxuriously furnished and decorated. I've stayed at much more expensive big name hotels that weren't as near as nice as this place. The place is on a picturesque harbour located about 30 minutes from St. Johns. It is worth the drive to stay here if you have use of a car.
