My husband and I stayed at two of these locations when we were in Newfoundland a couple of summers ago. We loved our experience. The rooms were charming, the breakfast was delicious and the staff was wonderful. We will definitely go back someday!
I had a great stay here. The lodgings were amazing and the bed was very comfy!. This Inn is close to everything and the owner was lovely and very accommodating. I would highly recommend staying here on your next journey to St. John's, Newfoundland.
A wonderful place! Filled with heritage and Charme, it is a special place! I enjoyed very much to be there. Whenever I come back to St. John: it will be me choice! You get a great place to stay, all information for the surrounding and a very nice breakfast - for an unbeatable price.
My friend and I recently stayed at the Jellybean Inn, which is a delightful painted row house. It is 4 stories and no elevator, so be sure to request a lower floor if you find stairs difficult. The rooms are lovely and Carol our host provided an excellent breakfast every day. It is very centrally located to all the tourist attractions and restaurants also very close to Water Street on the harbour front. We stayed for 6 nights in total.
Room was spacious and furnished nicely with antiques and period furniture; bathroom was very spacious, with a tub/shower; newer towels would be nice; room is quiet. The breakfast was marginal, with no choice; a plate of food is just put down in front of you. No host or anyone available to ask questions, which can be problematic for travelers who do not know the area. The location is great for walking to Water Street and other sights. In good weather, the harbor can be viewed from the breakfast area.
The room was beautifully decorated for it period and clean very comfortable with modern amenities. In a Conveniently located for all downtown. A nice area with a park across street belonging to the Lt. Gover. Roof top deck was nice outside area to enjoy. Breakfast room was nice with beautiful views. Breakfast was eggs both days, ,and I'm not a fan.
I had the pleasure of spending a week at the Roses in August with my friend and my daughter. The location was perfect as you could walk to the downtown area and pubs and shopping and to several must see sights. The ambience of the hotel and the rooms was in keeping with the era of this house but was really comfortable. Climbing up the narrow stairs for breakfast every morning was part of the charm; part of the character and authenticity of this place. The staff catered to our specific dietary needs with kindness and care . Great hospitality. I have no reservations in recommend ing this charming delightful B&B . Thank you Carole!
The location was good. We could walk to most locations in town. The room was very comfortable as was the bed. The continental breakfast was good. Loved the croissants, fresh fruit. We would stay there again and would recommend it to our friends and family.
Middling - quaint room, lots of space, comfortable bed, lots of fans to use as white noise to block out traffic noise from busy road, small bathroom with step (tricky in the middle of night), bizarre not to have staff around, breakfast was a disaster on the first day (staff issue), but great the next two days. Lovely location. Great to have sitting area. Noise from other lodgers, but you get that everywhere. Lots of stairs to breakfast, but lovely to have character rather than chain hotel feel.
We spent a relaxing and enjoyable first week of June 2022 in St. John’s at the Roses Heritage. We arrived early the first morning after a red-eye flight from Calgary. There was some confusion as it seemed we were not expected. It turned out that the welcome envelope had been left at the front desk of the Jelly Bean and not the Roses where we were booked. We enjoyed the stay. The breakfasts were not outstanding <understatement>, but the restaurants down Duckworth Street more than made up for it. Our experience after leaving changed our impression of our stay. On June 7 after we left, we discovered that we had left behind a pair of glasses. We immediately texted the housekeeper who said they were discovered and had been set aside with the person dealing with lost and found. We communicated that the glasses could be shipped by courier and the charges assigned to our credit card. We waited several weeks for the glasses to arrive, and when they didn’t, we called Carol. She had no knowledge of the glasses and said all she had were some reading glasses. On July 21, we sent documentation to Carol of our initial correspondence with the housekeeper. Carol replied that they had done some digging and found glasses in the laundry room. There were two pair of glasses, so she sent a picture of the two pair and asked us to identify the right pair. We did so on July 22. By August 2, nothing had arrived, so I called Carol asking for a tracking number. She said they had been mailed on Friday. By August 11 we still had no glasses and no tracking number, so I called Carol again. She had a tracking number and the glasses arrived the next day, but the pair that was sent was not the one we had identified. For this we had been charged nearly $50. We called and left messages several times, and on August 13 Carol finally texted back and apologized for her mistake and would mail the right glasses immediately. On August 16 she reported that they were mailed (Canada Post) and that it would be eight business days before they would arrive. On August 30 we still had no glasses, so I left another message asking for a tracking number. Carol said she would find it but never responded. On August 31, the right glasses finally arrived. Three months is a long time to address a small issue like this. Prior to this experience we would have considered returning to the Roses, but the lack of attention to detail and mismanagement has left us with no desire to return.…
