Our Establishment

Operating since 1993 as a Bed & Breakfast Balmoral House was one of the few establishments of its type in St. John’s, and the first officially licensed B&B in the province. Balmoral House is semi-detached upscale medieval style London (U.K.) townhouse, built for the established upper entrepreneurial class.

Refurbished to its original condition, we have created the ambiance of a small boutique hotel while maintaining our own distinctive decor. All art exhibited throughout the house is authentic. For our guests’ entertainment in the relaxing evening hours, we have made an effort to provide the ultimate television programming, and the fastest Internet service available in St. John’s.

Extra efforts are made to keep our bedrooms a cut above normal cleanliness.


Upon arrival, you will be provided with a parking permit for your vehicle at no extra charge so you can park in front of our property. Please pay close attention to any signs and park appropriately to avoid getting a ticket. We are not responsible for your parking tickets.

Each of our guest rooms is well appointed with a high-quality Queen Size bed and a full private (en-suite) washroom. Some rooms are quite large (in excess of 250 square feet), 11-foot ceilings and a fireplace. The rooms in the front of the property have the spectacular panoramic view of the old City, Signal Hill, Cabot Tower, the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, and the icebergs drifting past the harbor. One of the guest rooms on the top floor has a balcony with a bistro style table and chairs.
