"This hotel is in a great location right on the harbourfront in the middle of town. When I first investigated it, reservations allowed me to access their very good CAA/AAA rate with an Australian car club card, but I saw a yet better new rate, stay three nights and pay for two. When I went to book it the next morning, however, the rate had disappeared, so I inquired what had happened. I was told that it was a promotion that wasn't approved and it shouldn't have been put on the website, but as I'd seen it I could have it. Now that's what I call top customer service. When I arrived Reception staff were super-friendly, made sure I could have my room though it was three hours before check-in time, and when they heard I had walked from St. John's airport they said I must be sure to stay hydrated and handed me a large bottle of mineral water. Nice. The room was fairly small but the bathroom was spacious; decor is modern Scandinavian, there's a desk with adjustable chair, and it's well supplied with power outlets and USB ports (and a Nespresso machine). Extremely comfortable bed and pillows, and a big TV with a huge range of stations. My room faced the harbour and the view of ships coming and going was great. There is also a sun terrace right on the waterfront, a lovely place to sit (socially distanced tables) in good weather. I'll definitely stay here again."
"Absolutely wonderful stay!! Beautiful rooms, very modern! Very clean and oh boy...what a stunning view! It's really worth spending the extra money to get a king room on the 5th floor facing directly over the harbour... the views are amazing! Feels like you are on a cruise ship as you walk into the room! The location is also perfect! Such a nice area to walk along the waterfront and stroll down Water and Duckworth Street! Lots of great locally owned boutique stores, restaurants and pubs! During this stay we had the most delicious fish and chips at The Duke of Duckworth Pub then had breakfast the next morning at the Bagel Cafe...both are highly, highly recommended!! We loved our stay at the Alt and would definitely go back again!!!"
"This is an absolutely beautiful (modern and contemporary all in one) hotel, AMAZING staff that go above and beyond for their guests, the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in, floor to ceiling window if you get the harbour view room, the coolest shower glass (in our room it was a floor to ceiling puffin glass that was see in the room and in the shower) and no early morning check-out time!!!!! DEFINITELY . worth staying here!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and they even had a Happy Anniversary card and chocolate bar from Newfoundland Chocolate Factory left on the bed for us when we arrived......VERY nice touch!!!! We will DEFINITELY be regulars!!!!!! Oh and only a 10mins walk or less to lots of restaurants, shopping and a brewery"
