Cantwell House
Ranked #9 of 25 St. John's B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 July 2008

We stayed for two nights mid July 08 at this B&B.
good location (we explored the city and signal hill on foot starting from the B&B), very friendly owners!, nice room with a lot of antique.
From all the B&B's we stayed in at new foundland Cantwell house had the nicest breakfast ! (fresh fruit, yoghurt, good egg platters (more variety and better quality than other B&B's).
One disadvantage: breakfast is only ot 8.30.... this was a bit late according to us.

Certainly a B&B to recommend!

I just finished an excellent vacation to the province of Newfoundland & Labrador and I staid at Cantwell House B&B for 5 nights. The B&B was centrally located, I did not even have to rent a car while I stayed there. The house was spotless and offered excellent amenities. The service was unbelievable and ohhhhhhhh the breakfasts that were served............there was some days i did not eat lunch as a result.

The view from the third floor common area was breath taking....

I highly recommend staying at Cantwell House Bed & Breakfast when you go to visit St. John's......

We found the Cantwell House on the web but phoned to make the reservation. The taxi from the airport is about 10 min. Mary (the owner) was waiting to show us to our charming room, complete with fireplace & a view of the harbour. The common sitting room on the top
floor has free internet & a deck with an even better harbour view.
The property is impeccably clean & tastefully decorated. The breakfasts had lots of variety & were scrumptious. Both the owners & an employee (Heather) were very friendly & helpful with advice or directions to anything in the area. The location was great. We could walk to all the sights. 5 min to the museum etc., about 10 min. to downtown or many other historic buildings. Lots of dining choices nearby. The harbour is only a few blocks away so good for boat tours.
We stayed 4 nights & would love to return. My husband & I are retired
hoteliers so know a great property when we find one. Thumbs up all the way.

I contacted Cantwell House directly and booked two rooms for July 23, 24 2006 and August 8. About a month before arrival I phoned to check how we should check in late at night. I found that they had booked us for June, not July, and there was no availability in July. Accepting that perhaps I could have made a mistake I kept our bookings for August 8, and set about finding another place for the July booking. I was totally stunned when we arrived on the afternoon of August 8 to find that we had been "bumped" because someone else wanted to stay an extra night. They had made arrangements for us to stay at ABBA, which was fine, but I would certainly not book through Cantwell House again. I assumed that they would be especially careful after a "mix-up" at the beginning of the holiday, which in all likelihood was their mistake. It might be a nice place, but having booked there for three nights we never managed to get inside the door!
