We stayed 2 nights here in this jellybean row house near downtown St. John’s. Our room was beautiful with coral walls and lovely quilt on the bed. The location is perfect to tour St. John’s but beware the hills to get down to the waterfront! Breakfast was delicious and we had the house to ourselves so sat up on the third floor guest lounge and balcony and enjoyed the views to the harbour. We highly recommend this well kept clean house!

Cantwell House is on the historic side of town, convenient to Gowers St and Duckworth, Signal Hill. Audrey can give you a parking pass to hang in your car, allowing you to park along the street. We always found a parking place. Room #1 has an ensuite bathroom. We were quite happy staying at Cantwell, from which we made excursions to Signal Hill, the Geo Center, Quidividi, Spear Lighthouse, and to various restaurants in along Duckworth and Water streets.

Within walking distance of waterfront, the Rooms, Moo moos ice cream, George St. and a bakery. Room is clean and comfy, there is always a homemade treat available when you come home each afternoon. Breakfast is home cooked and changes every day and is delicious. There is a common room for relaxing in and a third floor little terrace with a view of the harbour entrance. Our room is on main floor,back of the house and nice and quiet. Parking pass included with our stay. Price is reasonable and Audrey is helpful, knowledgeable and a joy to talk with.

I truly can’t say enough about Cantwell House! Our host Audrey was lovely, the room was perfect. The towels were fluffy and the water pressure was perfect. Immaculately clean and historical. And the location was smack in the middle of downtown, close to restaurants, attractions, the water. Slippers waiting for you at the front door 😊 Stay here!

My husband and I stayed at Cantwell House at both the beginning and end of our holiday in Newfoundland (five nights). We loved staying here and absolutely enjoyed getting to know our host Audrey!! Cantwell House is located a few blocks up the hill from the waterfront where you'll find the restaurants and shops of St. John's. There was parking available on the street in front of the house. Both rooms that we had were large and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and ensuite bathrooms. There was a lounge on the top floor and a little balcony with seating outside overlooking the harbour for the guests to use. The wifi was excellent. In the morning, Audrey served an amazing (and different each day) breakfast plus a beautiful fruit salad along with available cereal, coffee, tea and juice. A wonderful start to the day! Audrey spent time with her guests and offered suggestions on places to visit and eat in St. John's and in the surrounding area. Don't miss Petty Harbour and Cape Spear! Cantwell House was one of our favourite places to stay in our month away and we think you'll agree too!
