We found the Roses to be a great base for exploring Saint Johns. There is ample parking across the street but you can easily walk to the entertainment district or to Quidi Vidi. It is a short drive to Signal Hill and its spectacular views. Our room was quiet, comfortable and well appointed. Breakfast is served on the top floor,...

Loved the location being so close to downtown. The room and bed were very comfortable. We enjoyed the view from balcony. Breakfast was delicious. The house has so much character and the pictures on the wall added charm and warmth. We will be back!!!

If the exterior impresses you, the interior is sure to amaze. This is an historic townhouse that has been beautifully restored. The room was enormous and the bed very comfortable. There was some street noise, but considering it is on a busy street, you have to expect some noise through the antique bay windows. After dark, the street became much...

The Roses is a great spot to stay when in St. John's. The rooms are clean and spacious and the breakfast girls are awesome! The only negative thing I have to say is the room we were in was on the second floor and faced Military Rd. The bus stopped right under our window which was noisy and disrupted our...

Hello, Thank you for your kind words. We really appreciate the feedback. Over the years most people do not mind the front on the second or upper floors as with the elevation it's about 18 feet up. Whenever we stay in downtown locations across Canada we find it less noisy overall than other downtown locations even many floors up, but...

This Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance of the old downtown harbour district. It has beautiful rooms and the breakfasts are so delicious. Karen and the other staff are very welcoming. It is an old building so you have to love and appreciate this vs modern and new.

We stayed here for a few nights in mid September and found the room very comfortable. The location is walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go. The house and rooms have a lot of character, which is what we expected. Unlike a typical B&B where the home owners are there to greet you and provide suggestions and recommendations, you...

This is a great place to stay and in a good location. Close to all the historic sights. The house is old and quirky so if you like modern and sleek don't come here. We had a suite in the basement. Big window in the sitting room. Could have used more lighting but other than that it was great. Good...

This is an excellent B&B in St. John's just a couple of blocks from the major streets and historical areas. The hostesses are welcoming and friendly and the rooms include antiques and interesting items. The property is centrally located although on street parking can be hard to find so take advantage of the church parking directly across- $5 is a...

“The harbor view is right beside the kitchen on the top floor. It was nice to have the kitchen that high for the view of the city.”

“Ask for a room not near the front doors - if you're a light sleeper the late night arrivals could wake you up.”
