Close to major things to do in St. John's

Pros: breakfast was great, our room was very large.
Cons: the tub was strange - clawfoot with parallel shower bars - the shower just went straight down so you didn't wet the end walls.
Location: close to signal hill, 40 min walk to Quidi vidi, very need the rooms museum. Bannerman park was lovely - had a spray park and pool!
Cabot House was a one time an elegant house. We were in room 3 on the first floor. King bed was very soft - perhaps from a topper. room was very large with high ceilings. the tub was unusual but worked okay. The breakfasts were excellent - although if everyone came down at once there wasn't enough room at the table - so at times there was a wait. The staff was attentive. off street parking was a plus - and the house was very convenient to all things to do within the city itself - although it was up a steep hill from downtown.. St John's is rather hilly. All in all I would recommend it.

Excellent location. Very quiet and very clean.

Stayed for a few days in August. I had the master bedroom and it was the largest room I have ever seen other thanthe Casa Loma. King size bed, desk, chairs, sofa, walk in closet, double jacuzzi, large sofa, beautiful plaster mouldings and bevelled glass windows. All that was missing was a dumb waiter and a maid to run my bath water

Newfoundland Hospitality Lacking

Hi, I choose this B & B due to location - was a good location for walking but traffic noise woke me. There is breakfast included but it is from 8 - 8:45 - a tight window of time. I went twice - was told they had no white bread, just brown (pretty basic breakfast staple) and the next time I noticed the milk was dated best before February 25 but it was March 14! I booked one day before I went to Newfoundland and if I wan't to cancel any of my days I would lose 100% of the money. I was very disappointed that once I checked into the room, I read that no guests are allowed in the room - had I known of this before, I would not have booked this B & B. I think a small fridge in the room would be a real help- the information tates that there is ice available in the lobby - there was 1 ice cube tray for all the guests & if someone else got there before you, there were none! There is a downstairs living room that I assume is for everyones use (I may be wrong) but there were 3 or tied full green garbage bags in there which did not look very nice. Saw a staff person who was working there many time smoking cigarets on the front steps. I said hello but no comment. When I went to breakfast there was not even a good morning, just said ":how many toasts do you want". When I was bringing things to my car, saw same man again and he said "HOw are you paying"? Room was nice and clean but did not get a nice feeling staying there. Won't be back............
