Stayed at Cantwell House at the end of July 2016 for 3 nights. Our family of four stayed in Room 3 on the 2nd Floor. Room was adequate after we turned the sofa bed sideways to accommodate movement in the room. Rooms were tidy and clean and pleasantly decorated with comfortable beds and linen. Audrey, the B&B hostess, was very...

My husband and I, along with friends, enjoyed two days at Cantwell House. It was our second visit to this B&B and it did not disappoint. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were superb. The central location was excellent for exploring the city on foot. The owners were very helpful offering dining and sightseeing suggestions.

Along with friends, we stayed at Cantwell House for a couple of nights while visiting St. John's, NL. Our stay was very pleasant. The owners of the property were quite welcoming and eager to please. They served an excellent breakfast while there. The location, within the downtown core, is excellent. An easy walk to almost all of the downtown sites.

If you are a hiker, as one of our party is, you can easily get to Cape Spear on foot as well. This is a lovely old house, lovingly preserved, with all the amenities. Comfortable beds, extremely clean. Audrey is a wonderful,...

Look no further for the best B&B in St. John's! It is a historic, elegant, Southcott style home with high ceilings, hardwood floors located in the heart of downtown. One of the best features for me was the third floor balcony overlooking downtown , Signal Hill and the Narrows. Incredible sunrise views! Audrey and Beverly are both very gracious hosts!...

If you're looking for a B&B in St. John's Newfoundland look no further than Cantwell House. Audrey was great, the rooms are large and there's a nice deck on the top floor overlooking the bay and up towards Signal Hill. It's walking distance to the restaurants and pubs! Very nice,

What a terrific way to start our journey through Newfoundland...a three day stay at Cantwell House! We were greeted by Audrey and given room #2; perfect! A lovely view of the city and harbour.
