This was our first time at Blue, and when we walked through the door we were pleasantly surprised by the modern decor, it was beautiful. We stood in the entry for about 5 minutes and watched 3 servers walk past us, look at us, acknowledge us, but make no effort to see if we needed a table or had a... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here a week ago for our anniversary. The rooms are very small. I loved the decor. The furnishings and accessories were beautiful. The downfall is this hotel has walls that seem to be paper thin. I just couldn't sleep most of the night or following morning because of the noise. it wasn't that the people... More

I saw this place online and took a chance...checked into the hotel in the bar?!@. A really neat spot...amazing rooms with modern deco with exposed brick/high quality. The bar is really nice. The food is very flavourful...ask lots of questions before you order...some stuff is out of this world...others things are just okay (chicken). My flight was cancelled and it... More

Awesome decor, excellent food, really nice bar! The staff are awesome! Love the huge shower and bath in the rooms and gone heated floor!! It's our close to home " get away" and we stay there a few times a year and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else... Although the parking selection isn't the greatest in downtown St Johns, it's...

There are not too many hotel boutiques where you can get the quality and service that you get at Blue on Water. The premisis are amazing, tub and showers were divine (and I just had a standard room), beds were fluffy and inviting. The rate was phenominal considering the location and what I received. The only thing that could have... More

My experience echoed previous reviews I collected. Hit or miss and mine was a near miss. For the price I did expect better. Overall service was good but the calamari appetizer was just luke warm and a little soggy. The salmon main was about medium temp when served but had a nice taste balance for farm salmon. I would not... More

Nice place and great staff. Good for lunches and breakfast. The best cod and fries in town. The staff is very friendly and sensitive. What more is there to say. It is not possible to complete the at least 200 signs review as requested by tripadvisor before this review can be posted which i honestly feel is ridiculous when in... More

I really liked the well-designed, if small, room. The bed was comfortable, the Keurig coffee machine a welcome addition given the not-so-great coffee one is sometimes served in NL. The air-conditioning was noisy and so was the street. Apart from that, it was an excellent location, even if the room looked out on an ugly parking lot. The corridors were... More

We stayed here for one night during our stay in St. John's and our room was just amazing. I believe it was #204. It's basically one huge room and there is a separate, large bathroom. The main room has a wall of windows that face out to Water Street, which is great if you enjoy watching people like we do.... More
