An excellent place to stay in St John's, NL. It is within walking distance of downtown ( Water St, George St and Duckworth), the Mile One Centre and The Rooms. Our hostess, Ann was warm, friendly, helpful and informative. Breakfast was hearty. The beds are very comfortable. The location was quiet. All in all, a great stay. We would stay...

A nice, quiet room well situated in downtown St. Johns. The host was very accommodating and provided wonderful breakfasts. There's a comfortable second floor lounge/kitchen/breakfast area. Good spot to stay.

This is a nice BnB (old home)very near downtown St.Johns. The lady in charge and her helpers who provide the meals are great and have a wonderful Newfoundland accent and sense of humour. They kept us laughing our entire stay. The only drawback for us was that our room faced a very busy, noisy street. So, if noise bothers your...

Very comfortable rooms. Breakfast were amazing. Quiet place, even if it's near the downtown of St-johns. The owners are very friendly. They even help us to suggest places to visit. Everything was perfect. Highly recommended !

Stayed here in July and I really enjoyed my stay. The room was wonderful and kept very clean. The owner, Ann certainly goes out of her way to help you in anyway she can. Would highly recommend the Narrows B & B to anyone looking for a place to stay in St. John's. A stones throw from the harbour and...

Ann is very friendly and informative.The room was comfortable, the B&B is within walking distance of all downtown attractions, breakfast was okay, but not enough choice or food quantity. St John's seems to be a very expensive place for accommodation. I expected more for what we paid

I thought I was already too late planning an early-Jul holiday in Newfoundland back in late-Apr 2016, but Ann of The Narrows B&B helped save the day. Through emails and a toll-free call, I was able to hold a room good for 3 people for a staggered 5-night stay. I forgot to check my email so I did not know...

This was our second time staying at the Narrows B&B, and it continues to impress.
