The hotel is in a fully renovated old building. This is very nice. Some odd decoration decisions (fake chimneys and near bed in room Jacuzzis ... not too sure) but overall a very welcoming place. Special thanks to the outstandingly kind staff. Very good breakfast.

We had a very pleasant stay here. Close to everything. Free parking. Our room was very comfortable and good size. We faced the wharf and could watch the ships. Nice lounge near the reception with complimentary tea/coffee, fruit and cookies. Very nice complimentary breakfast as well. Pleasant staff. We would stay there again.

Guess this is one of the historic spots in St. Johns. We did not want to stay in the usual chains, and in that regard this place served it up well. Great location near the main restaurant and bar street. Also conveniently, a keg and jack astors just across the road. Rooms were decent, decor was wood heavy. We liked...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel as part of our honeymoon. It's in a great location and all the staff were lovely. We stayed in a room with a king bed and a fancy bath tub. Our room seemed to be on a slight tilt (felt like you were walking up hill to get to the bed!), but...
