Excellent accommodations and great price. Did not know there was breakfast included so not sure how to rate that....there was a Keurig coffee maker but there was usually a big line so we did not use it.

Staff were great, very friendly! We kept locking ourselves out of our rooms though--it might be helpful to have the option for both roommates to have access to both rooms in case one gets locked out. The place was very clean and comfortable.

The initial page for payment was HTTP and NOT HTTPS and therefore when I hit submit my credit card info could have been hacked. The page where one types in one's credit card number really should be changed to HTTPS.

I had trouble booking on line but did get it worked out. I found the staff friendly and helpful. I rated good not higher as I would have liked the sinks and toilets cleaned sometime in my stay of over a week or the supplies to do it myself.

Providing , or selling round the neck card holders would prevent people locking themselves out of their rooms ! Overall very pleased with the accommodation and breakfast. Will reccommnd MUN to friends.

It would have been great to have a reading light over bed and maybe a tv. That is just my suggestion. It was a wonderful place to stay and would do it again if coming to St. John's . Also will recommend it.

Thank you for your warmth of hospitality and welcome. That was indeed a great time, being with the Newfoundlanders who are so kind and ready to assist. God bless. MAY WE ALL HAVE A GOOD SUMMER.

I arrived on Monday and Tuesday night a man was booked as my roommate. That was totally unacceptable by me. Needless to say I had to pack up and be moved. The first new room had a leaking ceiling - so I was changed again to 3028. The room was great, the assistance given was ideal. I am disappointed with the BOOKING not MacPherson...

it would be nice to have more than just a light blanket and sheets on the bed. Rooms were very clean and the residence staff were just awesome :) thank you!

St Johns Visitor information

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.

History of St Johns

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.
