Recent guest reviews
Hi, I recently stayed at the Chateau St-John and to describe the place in one word “Perfect” it location, it’s amenities, it’s staff, it’s services, bedding, rooms. Etc.... I can’t fault them on anything. Highly recommended. No, I’m not paid to write this review, it’s really what I feel about this location, and I have travel quite a bit. It’s not a 10 star, but it’s not it’s intention, it’s down to earth accommodations.
The hotel is located a bit away from downtown, which may be its only drawback for pedestrians. The rooms are large and comfortable, and sleep came easily. Convenient parking on premises at no cost. Breakfast was very good. Staff was accommodating and helpful. It’s surprising that a hotel of this size doesn’t have a dining restaurant. One suggestion would be to add grab bars to the showers to make them safer.
The hotel was easy to find. (The only easy thing to find in St. John). The room was comfortable and clean. The breakfast was very good and the staff was very helpful selecting restaurants for us. They also helped us get to St. Andrews for whale watching.
Enjoyed an excellent overnight at this lovely clean property. Lobby is very welcoming, guestrooms are quite large and we had a lovely view. Bedding very comfortable and the large washroom has a great shower. Walking distance to downtown Saint John which was very convenient. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. While breakfast is included we were catching the ferry and did not have time--next time! Great property!
Our room was on the third floor. The room was very nice and the beds were very comfortable. There were lots of receptacles to plug in all of our electronics. The elevators were very fast. Breakfast was wonderful except for the pancakes. They were very hard and difficult to cut.
This is a beautiful hotel with nice rooms and very comfortable beds. The breakfast was very good and great selection. You might want to ask to have a room facing the front at a higher level for a real nice view. I was on a lower level facing the back.
Stayed here for two nights in September 2017. The staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to help however they can. The front desk staff took time to make restaurant and sightseeing suggestions in Saint John and even suggested travel routes around town. Our travel plans changed slightly and even though our reservation (initially two consecutive nights) was nonrefundable, the manager allowed us to separate the nights without any additional fees or hassles. The property is very new and very well maintained. Rooms are very well furnished with comfortable beds and very high quality linens. Only complaint was that the room felt slightly dusty. The hotel is right off the highway and easy to access. The toiletries were very good. Loved the mild fragrance. Hot breakfast was adequate. The fitness center was also adequate. Would definitely recommend HIGHLY to anyone traveling to Saint John.
Terrific property and fantastic staff! King room is very comfortable and decided to have dinner in room our first night after spending afternoon downtown. Beds are super comfortable and housekeeping does an excellent job! Breakfast room is basic but well stocked. Walkable to downtown, approximately 20 minutes depending on your pace. Easier walk is to turn left out of hotel and cross over highway onto bridge into downtown by marketplace., not an uphill walk going this way! Would definitely stay here again or at one of their other properties, great hotel!
A comfortable hotel with good outside and underground parking. The king room was spacious and had a fridge and a safe. The hot breakfast was included. Check- in was efficient. Does not have a restaurant, or an obvious bar, but they will apparently serve drinks if you want one. You have to drive, or walk into town for restaurants or other diversions. Recommended.
We stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a long trip to and from the Maritimes. Pros: Nice location with easy access to everything we wanted to do. The hotel was a treat, nicely renovated with easy parking. Con: The interactions with staff were not always as upbeat as I would expect. The maids and so forth were very friendly and efficient, but the desk and dining area... it's hard to describe but "sullen" or "grumpy" comes to mind. All said: This was a great experience and I'd come back again, gladly.
