We've been there for more than a week. The room was small. When we arrive a dropped a tangerine on the floor. Couldn't find it. I eventually found it under the bed. Although the room had been cleaned already three times. The breakfast is the same every day. Toast, muffins, cereal and coffee. So I had the same breakfast for...

This is a brilliant downtown bed and breakfast hosted by Todd who makes fabulous cooked breakfast of pancakes or scrambled egg, sausage, watermelon, orange, grapes, on the side, with coffee, cereal, and sitting at a cosy table. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Todd was full of local information too. Free local calls. The location was handy for everything.

First time we ever tried B&B's. I figured what can we lose? It was lovely so we checked out four. The rooms here were well appointed and comfortable. Hot breakfast was an unexpected treat. The innkeeper is a seasoned travel agent so was a font of information and everything in the Province. We stayed in Room 1 which had a...

Fantastic location, great breakfast, comfortable beds and excellent host. Had the 3rd floor room, little tight in the bathroom but not an issue. Please consider this property when heading to the Rock! Keep up the good work. '

This place is a gem! The breakfasts are works of art! Easy walk from here to George street. Off-street parking is available too, which is a must in central St. John's. It's an even easier walk to harbor-front St John's with its parks for viewing incoming cruise ships and other ships in the harbor. Can't say enough about how good...

There were many positives about Gower House including its prime downtown location which allowed us to walk to the many restaurants, bars, art shops and the water front; its accessible off street parking just behind the B&B; and a fridge for guests to use. Breakfast was served between 8 & 9 am which meant we had delightful conversations with other...

The Gower Street House is in a wonderful location for exploring St. John's. We were able to drive to the "must see's" of Signal Hill, Quidi Vidi and the Battery. We were then able to walk to George Street, Duckworth Street, and anywhere else we wanted to see in the downtown area, return to our room and freshen up to...

In the center of jelly bean housing. The house would seem to have had high end renovations. Private parking was great, feet from the back entry at second floor level. Everything was clean. Breakfast was piping hot. I was the only guests. I was told that any guests were rare off season and that February was off season in St....

The house is like a traditional B & B, but no resident owners to chat with. Fine for us, as we know St. John's well. We were there five nights -- clean, comfortable room, very enjoyable breakfast with good breakfast service by Val. Great location, midway between downtown and The Rooms and the Veiled Virgin (about a 10-15 minute walk,...
