I arrived to a locked door. I had to ring the bell which went to a phone line where i had to leave a message. Only by luck did I check my email to find an email from the Hotel giving me a pass code to get in. No one ever called back. In fact I did not see one...

Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. Because we are such a small establishment we have limited staff in our off season. However, each guest is sent detailed instructions on how to enter the building and how to reach an employee. We also have several different room types that are priced accordingly, it sounds to me like you booked an Economy...

When I arrived a staff member from the restaurant answered the door, and didn't really have a clue what to do with me. He finally figured out to send me to room 405, where my key and info was on the door. Not once did I see a staff member from the hotel. It was a confusing experience overall and...

Thanks for your feedback. Because we are such a small establishment, we don't have a traditional front desk or check in process. We take great care to explain this in the confirmations we send to every guest upon booking. We also send detailed instructions on how to enter the building and access your room. During our peak season we have...

Made to feel small for not having a credit card. Willing to pay full week in cash upfront "we can only accept reservation with a days deposit on credit". Then told if if I went somewhere else id have to pay the room in full as it was passed cancellation date. Rick and a hard place I was in tears....

I am wondering if this was your first experience booking a hotel room. I myself have never been able to book without a valid credit card. Sorry you don't agree with our policies.

We stayed at the Duckworth Hotel for two nights in September and really enjoyed the stay. We were in one of the smaller economy rooms, and while it was small, it was well appointed. The room was clean, there was lots of space in the bathroom, and the bed was comfortable. We checked in and out at awkward times, so...

Room was nice, location is perfect; but continuous noise from the restaurant located downstairs. A former b and b, transformed into a hotel? without the normal services to be expected in a downtown hotel. Parking facility well located across the street.

Bernie F, Owner at Duckworth Hotel, responded to this review

Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your room and the location. Being an older building in the heart of St. John's has many benefits but it can certainly be noisy at times. Perhaps next time we could offer you a room on our top floor which might be quieter.

No front desk, no services, all for $140 plus tax. Room 402 (I am sleepless in it now at 11:30 pm) should not even be a hotel room. It is a vent for the kitchen system. That these people claim to be "boutique" is comedy of Dickensian proportions. This place will poison your experience of St. John's. Avoid it. Go...

Reviewed 11 September 2015

Unless you're completely deaf, avoid room 402. There's a huge ventilation tower just outside the window and it generates a great roar till 11pm. It's outrageous that they charge for a room that's so noisy that one can't even hear the television at full volume. And to preclude complaints to the front desk, they've disabled the phone.

The area around the hotel is largely vacant, with some of the buildings boarded up or under construction which gave me concern when we were driving around a few days before our stay. I thought the area seemed a little iffy. Our email instructions for entering the building were a little strange but we understood when we got there as...

We 2 days in St. John's before heading to the west coast. The hotel was clean, and had everything you needed. The fridge was handy for breakfast foods. The room was small and it was loud..

“I don't think all rooms come with private bathroom which for me is a must. We had a good sized room with modern spotless bathroom.”
