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!

We stayed here for a girl's getaway in August 2016. We picked this hotel because at $140 CAD it was the cheapest hotel we could find in the city. It was very basic and the room was quite clean. If you are looking for fancy accommodations or a lot of glitz, keep looking but if you want a basic hotel for a reasonable price, this is it. I think there was a gym but we didn't use it. There is a restaurant on site and the breakfast was good (you have to pay for it) and it is in a good location (close to MUN and the mall) but if traveling to St. John's I would recommend renting a car. It's not a big city but things are pretty spread out which makes getting around a little difficult.
