Because there was a mix up with booking.com we could stay at the cabot house instead of the abba inn. We were glad to stay here in the very spacious room. The breakfast was more than very good. There was a lot to choose from. I just didn't like their orange juice. The parking lot is pretty small. It is... More

Perfect location, parking on site, large clean & comfortable room with ensuite, easy check-in, excellent "full" breakfast with many options and exactly what you would expect for Newfoundland hospitality!

We have just completed a three day stay in the Cabot House. Great location close to downtown and walking distance to many sights in St. John's. Older character home that has been updated and has a great layout for a B &B. The negatives unfortunately are many from rooms that have more "dust bunnies" than most rabbit farms (generally very...

We were on the top floor, room 8. Very large and comfortable, good value. But - when Neil cooked breakfast, it was great. When someone else did, not quite the same in quantity or originality. Also - not enough seats for everyone, so if you came down early for breakfast, you got food right away, but otherwise it might be... More

The rates are low in the winter, so we used this B&B for a weekend in the city. The breakfast was tasty and the bed was ok, However, the room, although elegant at one time, looked a little worn and frayed. And we checked in at 1 pm, and the room didn't get warm until 10 pm!

The place is just gorgeous! My room (room 3) was spotless and very spacious, with comfortable king size bed, own private deck, and deep soak bathtub! The breakfast was AMAZING! and the staff was very helpful and accommodating! Location is unbeatable!

Upon entering the front steps were under construction and not easily passable The main lobby was stifling hot and when we entered our room it was stuffy It appears it has not been thoroughly checked for cleanliness DISSAPPOINTED

Charming B&B with great breakfast. If they offer the fish cakes, don't turn them down! Located in a quiet neighbourhood within walking distance to anything you'd want to see in St John's - as long as you can manage all the hills! There is no front desk with any maps or flyers, so just be prepared with your own plans.... More

Myself and My Husband stayed 3 nights overall in Cabot house in Room 3. I have to say the room itself was very comfortable and we had great nights sleep while there. A grand big king size bed, free wifi, TV, en suite in a quiet clean B&B. That said there were one or two things that are worth noting.... More
