I did struggle with the online registration. The room was fine. It would have been helpful to have a small garbage can in the room, rather than one for both units outside the door. I locked myself out of my room and appreciated the assistance I received from the front desk.

The front desk employees were excellent: very friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and accommodating. They didn't even mind running upstairs when we locked our cards in our rooms. A lovely facility. Love the little light over the bed - great for late night reading. The dining room employees were very helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the food and had plenty of choices.

Front desk employees very kind, helpful and cheery greeters. Send others to Patton College for same especially for independent travels such as ourselves.

Booked for 3 couples and this was a convenient location to George St and morning breakfast was included. Especially happy with the staff as they were helpful and friendly and would call cabs for us. Recommend no matter your budget.

The young man who worked the overnight shift 7/21, 7/22, 7/23 was so sweet, polite, and helpful, he really helped make for a good stay by holding my key for me while I went jogging in the mornings and also by making suggestions and giving directions. I appreciated his kindness.

I was very pleased with the accommodations and the meals! The staff were absolutely wonderful...so respectful and helpful (any time of day!). Our rooms were comfortable and clean. Thanks so much - it made our time in Newfoundland a positive experience.

St John's Besucherinformationen für Gäste

St John’s is a city that was built around it’s harbour, a dramatic inlet approached through the 200m-wide channel known as The Narrows. There was a time when the port was crammed full of ships from a wealth of nations, but these days, there is less traffic to the port, and it attracts mostly container ships and oil construction barges.

This has not stopped the growth of a vibrant nightlife in the city, and rough houses that used to be found along the waterfront have now been replaced by chic restaurants, stylish shops and professional office buildings. The waterfront is the social hub, and features a smattering of bars which showcase the best of Newfoundland folk music. This is a great reason to visit the city in itself, another is that the city forms the backdrop of the hit Canadian TV show, Republic of Doyle.

The number of seafarers who inhabit the city is dwindling, and instead the city attracts white-collar workers, artists and students from all corners of Canada.

With the exception of Signal Hill, the attractions in the city are within walking distance of each other. Museums include the Railway Coastal Museum, Provincial Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador and the East Rider Motorcycle Museum.

Getting there

The city is served by St John’s International Airport. St John’s is also the eastern terminus of the Trans-Canada Highway, which is one of the longest national highways in the world.

Geschichte von St John's

St John’s is thought to be North America’s oldest city, as year round settlement is thought to have begun sometime after 1630, with seasonal habitation beginning long before that. The city is named St John’s because Sebastian Cabot and his father became the first Europeans to sail into the harbour on the feast day of St John the Baptist (June 24th).

St John’s has been the location of many transatlantic firsts due to it’s location on the east coast of Canada. Guglielmo Marconi received the first trans-Atlantic wireless signal in St. John's on December 1901 from his wireless station in Poldhu, Cornwall. The city was also the starting point for the first non-stop transatlantic aircraft flight by Alcock and Browen in a modified Vickers Vimy IV bomber in June 1919.

During the Second World War, the harbour supported Royal Navy and Royal Canadian Navy ships that were engaged in anti-submarine warfare. It was also the site of an American Army Air Force base, Fort Pepperrell, that was established as part of the "Lend-Lease" agreement between the United Kingdom and United States. The base was transferred to Canadian control in 1960 and is now known as CFS St. John's. The Knights of Columbus Hostel fire in December 1942, saw 99 military and civilian lives lost.
