Had a awesome Easter weekend at Spotted Grunter!! Lovely place to chill with the river running past the resort and lots to do and see in the area of Port St John's. Vernon and Cindy have done a great job upgrading the resort and making your stay so special. The food was devine at the restaurant. Definitely will go back....

It had been a long time since I had visited the Spotted Grunter in Port St. John's and the new Owners have certainly been busy. I was very impressed with the many positive changes that Vernon and Cindy have actioned. The accommodation is well thought out with everything you need for a comfortable stay, the housekeeping impeccable and views and general ambiance breathtaking. Its also hard to match the the resort in terms of affordability too. We will definitely be going back at our next opportunity. Thanks for a terrific stay, please keep up the hard work. It's paying off!
