The Guv'nor Inn

Reviewed 16 September 2016

It's near the centre of the city, close enough to the downtown scene in a short cab ride, but far enough to be away from the hustle and bustle. Friendly service, clean modern rooms and GREAT FOOD in an English style with lots of Newfoundland dining choices. You won't be disappointed. Try the cod tongues!

Room Tip: Wonderful, fully equipped meetings

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.

Stayed here a few weekends ago and it was perfect for a night away with my boyfriend! Larry and all of the staff were very accommodating to us. The rooms were very clean all equipped with a microwave, fridge and flat screen. Very comfortable beds! Will definitely be booking again!

We stayed here for a girl's weekend in August 2016 because at $140 CAD it was the cheapest place we could find in the city. It has an old feel to it but it is clean. There was a gym but we didn't go. It was close to the university and mall but if traveling from out of town, I would recommend a car since things in the city are spread out, which makes getting around a little challenging. Breakfast at the onsite restaurant was good (not complimentary) and the service was good. The best reason to stay here: it's very clean!
