Appealing location

Negative Reviews

Traffic noise can be a problem

Rooms at the roadside are said to be subjected to a fair amount of unwanted traffic noise, which some guests have felt was excessive. Quieter rooms further into the house are available, so it may be worth requesting one of those.

Breakfast could be improved

Feedback about the breakfast here is a little mixed. While many guests have enjoyed the meal, others have felt that breakfast lacked variety, also mentioning that having only one table available can mean you have to wait for other guests to finish before you can eat.

Has seemed pricey to guests

A fair number of guests have questioned the room rates at this St. John’s B&B, with many feeling that the price was a little high. The owner is quick to point out that market rates are charged but it is still likely that you will be able to find cheaper accommodation should you need to.
