While in Australia, we made our booking directly with Cantwell House and were definitely not disappointed. Mary and Louis were extremely friendly and hospital.
Our intention was to start our trip visiting each province and St John's was the beginning with three nights at Cantwell House.

Cantwell House is an older style building with three levels. The rooms are large and homely. Within a short time of arriving, our hosts took us to a country western concert at the nearby Gower United Church. The weather was cool with light showers however we took very opportunity possible to see as much as St John's as possible.

Each morning, we had a lovely home cooked breakfast as this is a B&B.

The view of the harbour was fantastic. The house was withing walking distance to downtown and most attractions. The hosts were very informative about things to see and do. Would highly recommend Cantwell House B & B.

Our host Mary was gracious and helpful. The accommodations were tidy, comfortable and spacious. The room we stayed in was great with a good mattress on the foldaway couch. The two breakfast's were generous in their portions and featured a wide variety of local foods as well as normal breakfast staples. A highlight were the fresh baked goods and fruits. Location is good as you are walking distance to the downtown and not too far from any of the tourist attractions of St. John's. We truly felt at home during our stayeat Cantwell House

Cantwell House has all the old world charm of a pre 1900 house to go along with the great hosts, Mary and Louis. We walked to all the downtown shopping, great dining and Museums. Our super clean room was equipped with a VERY comfortable bed, great bathroom and no noise. Breakfast was always delicious and each morning we were able to gather lots of info after talking to the other guests and wonderful hosts.

I stayed at Cantwell House three times for one week at a time as I attended classes at MUN. This was my first B & B experience and I have to say that I am sold on it now.
I woke up to the most fantastic breakfasts and thoroughly enjoyed the company of the most charming hosts - Mary and Louis. These folks really know how to treat their guests and provided lots of little extras for the group of us staying with them to give us a real Newfoundland experience.
The view from the deck is fantastic for sitting with a glass of wine.
I hope to return some day with my family. Loved the view. Loved the food. Loved the company. Great stay at Cantwell House! I'll be back.
