The hotel is okay, but not very good value for money.

The hotel is okay, although not very good value for money. The biggest problem is the owner himself, a morose, passive-aggressive individual who treat his guests like unwanted relatives who have overstayed their welcome. Probably best to go elsewhere.

downtown St. John's

The location is wondeful--at the top of a hill overlooking the waterfront. BUT it is 3 stories and the dining room is in the basement (4 floors down). I believe the owner is not comfortable with people so communicates too much by notes and signs.
