“Great location and value”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Had a wonderful experience at this superb Bed and Breakfast...the location was just a short walk from everywhere I wanted to go downtown and the staff was very helpful in giving me directions and pointers on where to go...the rooms were spotlessly clean...I would definitely recommend this B & B to be the best value in the city because of its excellent location and clean environment.. they offer rooms of different sizes, all beautifully furnished..my room had some lovely antiques and the bathroom was luxurious....beautiful funky neighbourhood with its townhouses painted bright colors like jellybeans and I felt absolutely safe as a single woman walking around late at night....it was my first time to Newfoundland and definitely plan on returning as soon as I can...such hospitality and friendliness from everyone I met.

Stayed at this B&B while on a business trip. The house is an old wooden row house in downtown St. John's. The room was clean and comfortable, with a tidy ensuite. Free wifi was reasonably fast, and there was easy free parking out back. Great location within walking distance of plenty of bars and restaurants. The interior is not modern by any means, but why would it be? It's quaint and cozy. I'd stay again! You need to be able to climb stairs to stay here- not wheelchair friendly!

Beautiful location. Convenient for walking. Supermarket and plenty of restaurants nearby. Owners and staff very friendly and readily available for information or needed assistance. A great place to return to at the end of a long day of sight-seeing and other activities.

Memorable and superlative!

I stayed at 180 Gower mid November for a week. It was an enjoyable stay I had a room towards the back which was quiet and perfect for me which had a private bathroom. Ample supply of towels Bed was so soft and sheets felt like silk,The room was decorated nicely and it was very clean and well maintained. I had a great wifi access which ran smoothly without interruptions.This B&b had friendly staff who were more than happy to help me with any issues or general questions. It didn't have anyone living there but the staff were easy to get hold of when I needed anything. The B&b had a shared kitchen and living room area and I had full access to this during my stay it was very comfortable and the other guests added to an interesting stay. The B&B was very close to the downtown main streets with the tourist shops in this lovely little city. I will highly recommend this B&b. Five stars from me :)

My daughter and I stayed at the Gower for 3 nights and found it to be clean, quiet and the staff very accommodating. There was free parking in the back and it was just a 2 minute walk to Water Street. The breakfasts were delicious and always tea/coffee available at any time. A number of reviews refer to the fact that it is an 'old' building- we loved this part of the experience and that St. John's is encouraging the renewal of older properties and didn't find it to be loud at all. It's a house so there are sounds of others around but nothing major. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks Joseph (and others...)

We stayed at Gower House in November 2013. Overall it was okay. We did find that noise travelled throughout the walls but it was a 120 year old house so that was to be expected. However, it was still annoying when other guests returned home at 12:00am and seemed to forget about the age of the house and made unnecessary noise, which was not the fault of the B & B. Breakfast was fine, nothing special. The regular cereal, toasts, eggs and coffee. The room and bathroom were clean and the room was comfortable. Overall, it was a basic place to sleep with just average standards. If you're looking for a fancy or luxurious place to stay....keep looking. But if you're travelling on a budget and don't mind the creeks and quirks of an old house, by all means give it a try. Just expect a basic room and basic services and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: A room on the highest floor would be quieter. You wouldn't have the noisy footsteps of upstairs...

Older B&B within walking distance of much of downtown St, John's. Definitely an older building, so there are some "quirks" in the way things are laid out. We found it comfortable. There is parking in the rear, a bit hard to get into, but free. Nice cooked breakfast. Very hospitable and helpful staff.
