My wife and I have stayed here a few times in the past year or two. We only stay when they have the 'suite retreat' package where you get to stay for $99.99 which includes the room with the jacuzzi. The room is nice, and the jacuzzi tub is an added bonus, but every time we go there is ALWAYS...

Had a massage given to me as a gift certificate. The male masseuse who provided my 'relaxation massage' had long fingernails that cut into me when he started his work and had a runny nose that he kept sniffing back. The entire experience was not relaxing or pleasurable, but how do you ask someone to cut his nails and come...

My friend and I went for a nice relaxing evening to get away from the hustle and bustle of home with small kids etc. However, when we checked out, I quickly noticed my car window smashed out, damage to my door and a stolen bag! I notified the front desk and as a previous posted mentioned, they basically shrugged it...

Just this weekend, the night of Sunday Sept 6th, 3 vehicles were broken into. Glass smashed, property destroyed and stolen. You have statements from the owner stating that they "implement signage, motion sensor lighting and other surveillance measures to deter such activities." These are empty words and no such measures were ever taken. If parking in an area specifically reserved...

It is unfortunate that this has happened, know that we are indeed taking measures to deter such activities We have contracted the installation of exterior security cameras to be installed to deter this activity.

Not my favourite place to stay in St. John's. Room air was very stale. Wifi not working (no help from desk on this), so couldn't do any work. Also couldn't figure out the logic of the room configuration. Two double beds opposite each other, and a jacuzzi in the corner in addition to a large bathroom. Desk with a large...

Thank you for your comments. The air conditioners do ensure that the room air remains fresh, guests simply need to turn them on or off to suit their preference. We don't normally have any wifi issues, so this may have been something new for the front desk. Know that our cleanliness is of topmost importance, and you can be certain...

The Monastery Spa and Suites have very serene rooms with nice Aveda toiletries as well as thick cotton bathrobes. My room had a whirlpool tub, but no directions/information on how to use. I eventually figured it out. I stayed the weekend of the George St. Festival which means people were going to their rooms quite late e.g. 2:30 am. I...

My husband and I stayed at Monastery Spa and Suites in February of this year.

So I have visited the Monastery Spa and Suites on many occasions over the past couple of years. Whether it be for a romantic night out with my husband, or a spa day out with the girls.
