My wife, 2 kids and I stayed for a night over the Mother’s Day weekend and we couldn’t have been happier. The staff were helpful and accommodating to our young family and very knowledgeable about the area.

The staff were helpful and accommodating to our young family and very knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in a suit and had a separate room for my wife and I and the kids slept out in the living room. They had there own tv and bathroom and absolutely loved it. This hotel is a great mix of old world charm and modern convenience with two fabulous restaurants on site we didn’t have to go far for fantastic food either. We can’t wait to come back. Highly recommend. Read less

Had an absolutely amazing stay last night. The rooms were beautiful, beds were comfy and customer service was 10/10! It was our first time staying there, we’re locals just looking for a close getaway and will definitely be back again.

A pleasant hotel one line back from the Warf. This is an old building converted into a modern boutique hotel. The rooms were large clean tidy and warm. A little old fashioned in décor but that's not unusual in this part of the world. We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis with the breakfast being a help yourself buffet style , made up of breads cereal and cook yourself porridge. With lots of fresh fruit tea coffee and juice this made for an adequate breakfast if a little uninspiring. In the cold weather it would have been nice to have a hot breakfast or even some sliced meat or cheese. The Reception staff were pleasant and nothing was to much. We had a hire car from the airport and it was good to have free parking at the hotel. I am not sure if the carpark would be big enough in the peak summer season. A great selling point of this hotel is that it is right in the centre of St Johns. Read less
