This hotel is located on the water in the centre of St. John's. It is a one minute walk to the main shopping area and another minute to the main pub/restaurant area. The hotel has a restaurant indoors which also serves food in an outdoor area. You can explore a lot of the downtown area by foot and if you...

The rooms are big and comfy with a jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. Even tho it was 80 outside the fireplace was nice. They need a new elevator tho as it is very creaky and you wonder if you are going to get to your floor. Breakfast in the morning was really tasty too.

Ideally placed within walking distance to lots of restaurants and well placed for a walk along the harbour (when it's not raining). Really nice friendly staff. Good breakfast. Lovely room - had a queen room with a harbour view. Lovely to soak in the jacuzzi after a rainy day. Would recommend this hotel to anyone

We had two stays here recently- a 3 day and a one night. There are quite a few features of the hotel that I like and appreciate but then just some aspects that could use improvement. Loved the history and architecture of the building. Consequently the rooms are not the usual cookie cutter spaces. But one of the rooms we...

This hotel is located in the heart of downtown. The rooms were large and well maintained and very clean. The staff at the counter were more than helpful.

Friendly welcome and we were given an upgrade to a huge suite looking over the waterfront. Great central location walkable to pubs and restaurants. Very good value given the size of the rooms generally. Breakfast buffet was fine though the breakfast room is quite small. Would recommend as an ideal base in St John's.

This is an expensive "boutique" hotel on the waterfront. It has seen better days. Staff are terrific but they are working with a tired product. Stale smelling rooms and worn out beds are not the stuff of quality. Choose one of the other downtown hotels.
