We loved our stay at the JAG. We had a beautiful room with a beautiful bathroom and a view of the harbor. It was a great location for walking to dinner and shopping and for sightseeing. We had breakfast at the restaurant which was good but expensive. They put out banana bread and coffee between 6 an 7 AM. Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful. We went with another couple who did not have as nice bathroom (they even switched rooms and it was better but not as nice as ours!) so be sure to ask for a room with the big shower and two showerheads.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the harbor and a rain shower with two shower heads

A very nice hotel with a great staff and a great restaurant! The rock 'n' roll theme was enjoyable and different than any other hotel I have stayed at. A couple of blocks walking distance from the downtown area and a little further to the museum and cathedral area. The food was outstanding and the desserts were even better. The staff was so friendly and warm. The rooms were a nice size for 2 people and very clean. I highly recommend this hotel if you are visiting St. John's. Thank you JAG for truly pleasant experience while in NL.

On our recent trip to Newfoundland, we began and ended our visit with several nights' stay at the JAG hotel in St. John's. We could not have chosen a better place to start and finish our travels.

The service was uniformly excellent; to a person, every staff member whom we encountered was friendly and welcoming.

The hotel is fresh and attractive inside. We thought the overall theme of classic rock-n'-roll was fun, engaging, and tastefully done. Our rooms were immaculately clean and beautifully appointed. We happily made use of the Keurig-style coffee pot and the small fridge, as well as the in-room safe. We appreciated the attention even to small touches, such as the pin-point reading lights available on each side of the bed, the extendable make-up/shaving mirror in the bath, and the fresh robes hung neatly in the closet... Not to mention the chocolates left for us each evening.

We ate only breakfast at the on-site restaurant but were pleased with the menu options and the quality of the meals. The location of the hotel was excellent, within easy walking distance to downtown St. John's. When we needed our car, the valets brought it to us quickly and cheerfully.

When we checked in again for our end-of-trip stay, we were delighted to learn we'd received a free upgrade to a suite. As we had initially requested, this corner suite was on the fifth floor with a view of the harbor/Signal Hill in the distance... And in a word, it was beautiful! Elegantly appointed, very roomy. We thoroughly enjoyed our nights there... Especially since it had been offered to us unasked.

If we ever visit St. John's again, there is no question where we will stay. To the management and staff at JAG -- thanks so much for making us feel so welcome!

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor (4 or 5), with a view of the harbor/Signal Hill. Fifth floor corner suite wit...

The beds are comfortable, the location is great but the staff are even better. Always a smile.
Look forward to returning. Oh yes, the turndown service with chocolates. Very nice to come back to at the end of the day.

Hope so. It kind of describes this new hotel in downtown St. John's. Cool music greets you in the lobby, that continues on in the elevator and into your room. Pictures and posters of rock and country greats populate the place. Staff are friendly. The hotel is positioned nicely near the harbour and a five minute walk from the great pubs and restaurants of George and Water streets. You're on the edge of all the noise and activity, thankfully not in it. Signal Hill is ten minutes away by car, and twenty if you're walking. Cape Spear is thirty minutes the other way. Spent a week here and it was great. I would stay again here for sure if I come back.

We will take "funky' no problem! Thanks so much for the kind words and 5-stars. Great to hear that you got to take advantage of our location and explored the harbour front, George Street, Signal Hill, and Cape Spear. It sounds like you had a wonderful stay in St. John's. We look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to the province.
