I stayed at The Duckworth for 2 nights in mid-July 2022. I was very satisfied with the accommodations and it met my expectations. It covered the essentials well: clean, quiet, big and comfy bed with great water pressure and hot water. The room itself was smallish but not too small but that's fine as I'm not given to lingering in my hotel room. The location in the heart of downtown is fantastic - you can easily walk to key amenities and attractions. It would have been great if there were more TV channels available to have on in the background when starting and ending a day but I never visited St John's to watch TV so not a big deal. If you're not used to the sound of a portable AC, you may find the noise of the window mounted unit annoying - BUT at least there was AC as it was crazy hot and humid when I was there.
All in all, I would stay there again.
