We stayed here for two nights last weekend. The hotel desk is the bar downstairs where you check-in with one of the bar staff. Everyone was very friendly and the room was clean and spacious. Our first night was on a Friday and we could hear the traffic and the music from George Street until early AM. We were awakened...

We just returned from Blue On Water. We stayed 3 nights in this lovely hotel. Our room was comfortable with a queen bed and a huge bathroom. We had an amazing shower and a soaker tub. We ate breakfast and lunch at the restaurant and the food was delicious. The service was excellent and I would recommend this hotel to...

Would not have found this spot on my own, reserved for me by colleagues, but what a treat! Only about a dozen rooms, right in the heart of downtown entertainment district, really enjoyed it. Room was large, well finished, very Euro-modern décor and comfortable bed and 2 large sofas. Really nice change for the better from cookie cutter big chain...

Stayed in one of the supreme rooms (awesome design with brick, stone, huge tub, and every other feature you would expect - can't imagine what the deluxe room would...

Stopped in for a quick drink prior to having dinner across the street. Great tap, bottle and can list, well stocked bar and very friendly service. Really liked the atmosphere and a fun place to people watch. On the to do list for dinner later in the week!

We were very happy with the communications we had with Sully concerning this off site apartment. All the details of this property are very well thought out. The location, decor, furniture and bed were 10/10. Waking up in the morning with the view of Signal Hill was such a treat! You can walk easily to the bustling downtown of St...

Nice restaurant in the middle of town. A bit noisy, however. Prices are on the high side and service is slow. Dinner for six for example was $400 Canadian. Food is good, however. It's worth at least one visit while you are in St. John's.

Best chowder I have ever had. Period. Lobster roll was outstanding too. Manager and server were so polite and attentive. They even took us on a tour of the boutique hotel that is attached to the resto. Cod tacos were a stand out as well! Can't miss this place.

I’ve been to Blue on Water several times and this restaurant continues to meet my expectations. I have been to Blue for brunch and lunch, so my comments will reflect those experiences. Atmosphere: Casual, relaxed, friendly staff and pretty typical service/wait time. Food: I’ve only ever had the smoked salmon bagel and seafood chowder (appetizer) + steak and fries (main)....
