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...

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.

St. John’s proximity to Europe reveals itself at Gower House B&B. A comfortable ‘at home’ B&B with old Europe’s characteristic accommodations: welcoming hosts, eclectically furnished and snug guestrooms with compact bathrooms, creaky beds, erratic plumbing and mediocre breakfasts. To be sure it did have most of what was advertised: a great location, plenty of off-street parking, all the usual electric...

Thank you for your feedback. The old brochures for Gower House say that the loft has a King bed because that was the case sometime ago, of course they're updated now, along with our web pages and on booking website. There's no way our guests would be promised a king bed and find a queen bed instead. We offer a...

My wife and I were very impressed by the service we received the quality of the breakfast (delicious and fresh), and the room we stayed in (very clean and air conditioned). Very accommodating and helped recommend some destinations and directions that were very helpful. We found the location to be perfect for exploring downtown St johns and the heritage areas.

Gower house is one of the nicest places I've ever stayed in. I received a very warm welcome from the staff, they showed me to my room and were very informative about the whole city. My bedroom was amazing, super clean, and the bed was *wow* very comfortable. I was so happy with the air conditioning especially on a muggy...

Gower House staff were gracious and helpful towards family members who were home for a wedding. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was delicious and well-prepared. I was quite pleased with the level of service and would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wishing to stay in the downtown area of our beautiful city!

This B&B was a disappointment to my husband and I during our 2 night stay June 27th & 28th. This relates to the lack of hospitality and service provided and oversights in preparing our room. Although our host was pleasant, there was no friendliness or attempt to interact with guests. Being a student, it appeared that he was seldom around....

We are very sorry that the evening these folks were with us did not meet their expectations. They had been scheduled to arrive the previous day. When they didn't arrive as booked, we were able to track them down to confirm that there was no booking error and that they wanted their room held. The 1/2 inch foam insert had...
