It was a delight to be in this charming Queen Ann house so centrally located. James was most helpful with our suitcases , arriving and leaving. We had the larger room on the first floor and was surprised at how quiet it was . The room is well appointed, very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and the company...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. When booking, the only room that was available was number 1 with two twin beds. We booked it anyway, and we are glad we did. We arrived very late at night and were greeted warmly by James. He showed us around and made us feel at home. He helped us with...

My husband and I stayed at this charming B & B for three nights while visiting St. John's and area. It was simply lovely!! Janet and James exuded such warmth and hospitality, making our stay really quite comfortable. They were also more than accommodating of dietary allergies for our breakfast. So appreciated!! Highly recommend At Wit's Inn!!!

At Wit's Inn was our first stop during a 17-day trip to Newfoundland and Labrador and a perfect destination to get our holiday off to a great start. We were a retired couple traveling with our two adult daughters. Room #1 with its two single beds was perfect for the girls and my husband and I appreciated the spaciousness of...

Only stayed one night, but it was a breath of fresh air after staying at the Delta for the previous two nights. Amazingly comfortable beds and a very nice host. No A/C, so it did get a bit hot at night, but there are fans in the rooms.

We stayed two nights At Wit's End, following one night at the Sheraton Hotel, which I admit was also very comfortable, with a piano you can play. You feel immediately at home. Both are at the same end of town, not that big a town, and very convenient to everything. Our first stop was the Terry Fox Memorial. Janet and...

Wonderful inn in a central location. Cozy and comfortable room with fantastic breakfast, friendly hosts and great service. Good restaurants nearby. Note if you have trouble with stairs this is not the place for you.

This B and B is ideally located , close to the rooms as well as downtown St. John's; in an area with many beautiful houses. The B and B is very elegant and it speaks for itself. The hostess is very professional and served a delicious breakfast. We were very pleased with the visit and recommend it.

We stayed at this B&B for three nights in St. John's. Janet and Gary (and Beth!) were very friendly, welcoming and very helpful! It's in a wonderful location - right near downtown and very close to a popular location for tourists and locals - Signal Hill. A very beautiful, impeccably kept old house. A quite location, as it has 3...

This was our first trip to Newfoundland and we spent 3 nights here. Janet and Gary were terrific hosts and the breakfasts were great. The inn is convenient to downtown restaurants. Having free street parking was a real plus. Our room was comfortable and even though it was hot the fans that were provided made it OK for sleeping once...
