    Quaint little inn with an old world charm.Surprisingly great beds.Food at the pub was not up to our expectations.Everyone was extremely friendly but Kris at front desk was most helpful going above and beyond to help us.Will visit again just for the service she provided!

    We recently stayed at the Guv'nor Inn in St. John's. The hallways smelled very stale. Despite the fact this is an older facility, our room was clean but small. The window air conditioner was very loud. Overall, it was an acceptable place to stay.
