Reviewed 30 June 2013

This was the first time I stayed at a B&B and was a little nervous about it not knowing what to expect, but it was such a great experience. We were in room 2 and unfortunately were not able to stay at the B&B the whole time since it was already booked for the rest of the week. The room was beautiful, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was delicious each morning. Janet and her family do a wonderful job maintaining this gem. I really have no complaints about my stay here.

We stayed 2 nights in early June. This B & B has the perfect location for investigating the city. The well renowned jellybean houses are mere steps away. The B & B was clean and we had a room on the second floor with twin beds, which were very comfortable. Our hosts were informative regarding restaurants and sights to be seen. The cooked breakfasts were super, providing power for the sightseeing hikes ahead, particularly Cape Spear, nature at its finest. If the wind gets a bit much, a trip to The Rooms is a perfect solution and the cafe windows affording a mesmerizing view of St John's harbour.

The special qualities of this B & B start with the beautiful interior and warm welcome. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated as was the bathroom. The beds were ever so comfortable and the inclusive breakfast one of the best.

We stayed for 3 nights (13th - 15th May 2013) and I think this is probably the best B & B we've ever stayed in.
Janet, Gary, Katie and Bowser are welcoming hosts, friendly and hospitable, who really cannot do enough for you.
The house is well located and is within walking distance of bars, restaurants, shops and St John's main points of interest.
The room was clean and comfortable and well furnished.
Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and really set us up for the day. There is also a pantry so that tea, coffee, toast etc can be had by the peckish!
I loved this place and would definitely stay here again

We stayed At Wit's Inn for 2 nights while in town for the weekend. The Inn has been beautifully restored, is spotlessly clean and Katie was both friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We were very happy with the hospitality and the inn itself. Our room on the third floor was large, quite comfortable and the continental breakfast was more than enough to give us a good start to greet the day. I understand that during high season a full, hot breakfast is provided. There was also juice, yogurt, biscuits and tea or coffee etc. available in the pantry throughout the day should one feel like snacking. At Wit's Inn also has location, location, location. If the weather is good there are great restaurants, bars and shops just a few minutes walk away. It's also very close to Devon House, a craft shop which has excellent juried items from artists all over the island. Kudos to the staff! Highly recommended.

We stayed here recently during the off season. What a fantastic place - from the decor, the continental breakfast and the friendliness and helpfullness of the people there, our whole trip was made that much better! It is also conveniently located just a short walk from downtown and all the main attractions that the city has to offer. If you don't want to walk, it is also a short distance to a taxi stand.

I was travelling for business and this was close to temporary office and had great ratings, it was cheap so I booked it. I could not have been happier and really hope I get an opportunity to return in the summer to try Janet's breakfast after a night on George street!! Janet was a pleasure to book with and her children Katie and James were fantastic, they made sure I had everything I wanted. The place is gorgeous and completely spotless, I don't know how they manage to keep it so clean to be honest. The home is beautifully restored and decorated, my bed was so comfortable and I wanted to steal my pillows (truly). Also, the little inn cat bowser is perfect. He's sweet, loves belly rubs, and doesn't mind be cat napped for a few hours if you take him :) Also, there's chocolate in the room +++
