Great location. Rooms are tastefully decorated. Everywhere, there are pictures of music icons on canvas or framed prints, even one with Elvis. Great dining place - Exile. Nice place to have small cozy concerts while enjoying a drink or having a meal. Its not a big hotel but service is excellent. Exile restaurant is not a big place either. Not… Read more

We stayed here over Xmas. The check in was quick and efficient. The room had a great view, was large and well laid out. We tried the restaurant, Exile for dinner and had a great very tasty meal with an exceptional server.

We stayed here over Xmas. The check in was quick and efficient. The room had a great view, was large and well laid out. We tried the restaurant, Exile for dinner and had a great very tasty meal with an exceptional server. We asked for extra toiletries in the evening and were told they were locked up and we would get them in the morning. The night was good. A quiet sleep with a good bed. The next day we awoke and as we were leaving we asked for the toiletries and were told there were none and there wild be no cleaning services on the 25th or 26th!!! We have travelled all over the world for Xmas for the last 30 years and this is the first time we are ever heard of anything like this. I understand wanting to give staff vacation time but not having staff to clean is unusual. Having one staff come in to remove garbage and change towels is not to much to ask. We did manage to get towels later in the day. The front desk staff on the 25 and 26th seemed like they wanted to be anywhere but there. But I will say the lady on the night of the 26th was friendly. My wife has stayed at this hotel before and bragged it up, but All I can say is do not say at Xmas. There are much better values for your money in the area. I am unsure of if services are cut during other holiday times. Honestly is lacking from this hotel. They should say if services are not offered. It should not be something that needs to be found out through questions afterwards. I do not know if services were cut to give staff time off or to save money, but I suspect it was to save money as I think there were less than 10 rooms booked. In my opinion if you want to be promoted as an upscale hotel act like one. If you want to cut back on services during a period, close your doors for the holidays. We liked the location, loved the restaurant, enjoyed the view, were impressed by the decor of the lobby and entrance but unfortunately we cannot look past bad service and staff and cannot recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Jag this past week for 4 nights for my first time and I can say honestly this was my best ever in St.Johns right from the valets to the front desk to the room service and restaurant staff would not be able to make even 1 minor complaint so if anyone looking for 5 star service and beyond the jag is the place

Spent 2 nights here recently for a friends wedding. Nice location right down town so close to everything. It is right across the street from the harbour and container pier but no noise to speak of, I mention this as I am a light sleeper and room doors etc usually wake me, no issue here. Really comfortable bed and beautiful rain shower. There is free parking on the street on the weekend and across the street in a city owned lot. Through the week might be a different story. There is also valet parking available for $17. Staff was accommodating and the hotel has a small boutique vibe to it with many music related pictures hanging throughout. There is a restaurant/bar in the lobby but I didn’t have a chance to eat there other than a take out coffee which was Starbucks I think. Good clean property owned by the Steele family which do things first rate as usual. Read less

Decor was very cool. The whole set up is original and eclectic. Highly recommend based on the rooms and the location if you are there for the downtown core. Not a lot of parking on site would be the reason for a 4 instead of a 5 rating. Only there one night so didnt really get to explore the hotel much
