We have stayed at the Shadow Lawn Inn on several occasions when visiting family in the area. The staff is very welcoming and friendly, the rooms are well appointed and the beds are as comfortable as beds get. There is a nice continental breakfast and at our last visit it seems the offerings were increased with such items as smoked...

Jamie and staff looked after all our needs (and some we didn't consider) for our recent wedding. A perfect location for a small wedding of 50-60 ppl. The home is beautiful, the staff warm and welcoming, oh did I mentioned the food??? The brunch was a delight to the senses.....such great selection and loaded with flavour. We will continue to...

Great find in the heart of Rothesay. It was recommended to me by a business friend. The owner stayed late to greet me, and reopened the kitchen late at night to make an outstanding dinner for a tired traveller. This is a different experience than staying at the impersonal downtown hotels in Saint John. At this older, stately mansion you...

A beautiful cool day, the grounds so neatly manicured, up the majestic stair case to our sun soaked, elegant and cosy room. The afternoon melted away. The colours, the bedding, the bed! We didn't want to get up again but we're glad we did. The food, the drink, the service - spot on! Can't wait to go there again!!!

Another meeting at Shadow Lawn and another incredible experience. The entire staff cares about the customer experience and makes sure everyone feels at home. The food was second to none and the charming atmosphere helps everyone relax. Can't wait for my next visit to Shadow lawn.

My wife woke me up last night at just after 2AM to tell me she thought there was a mouse in our room and to make a long story short, sure enough, she was right. Then we were awoken again at between 6 & 630 AM to the conversation between the couple in the next room. They were speaking in...

Sir, We are sorry about your recent experience at our Inn. Our building is 146 years old and unfortunately there are some issues that accompany an old structure. This is a very rare situation made worse by the road construction upheaval. We have dealt with the problem. Our housekeeping staff is meticulous about cleaning our guest rooms. We are constantly...

We were driving to St. John and all the hotels were filled so we decided to try this B&B as we had passed it many times while travelling in the area. The reception from the staff was warm and friendly. Our room was large with an adjoining bathroom. Our window overlooked a side yard and deck. There were a couple...

Thank you for your feedback. All of our mattresses have been replaced in the past year with pillow top mattresses. Often the comfort of a bed is personal preference. We have had great feedback on our menu options. We are sorry that you did not choose to try one of our more traditional non-Thai options. Our culinary staff is always...

The room was lovely. The stairs were numerous. The bed was comfortable. The night noise was robust. The television was functional. The bed was placed so that you needed to lay on your side. The breakfast was adequate. The muffins sported green.

We are very proud of our recent room renovations. We are happy you agree. Our building does not have an elevator. It is 146 years old and we do not state anywhere that we have an elevator. We host many functions and sometimes the noise level is a little loud. Our functions always end by 11pm. We hope you mentioned...

Thank you for choosing Shadow Lawn as your last stop on tour. We're glad you got to enjoy a great meal in The Robertson. We appreciate your feedback on our continental breakfast. We take this feedback very seriously and will work to improve our offering. We hope you will consider Shadow Lawn again if ever you are in the area....

It's in a quiet residential area, so if you're planning to walk to nearby places, this is not for you. But a lovely setting, good food, friendly service, free phone service, no elevators and high staircases. I'd stay there again.
