Staff was very helpful from booking to departure. I checked in and out at odd hours and appreciated pleasant attitude.

Front desk was available to offer advice on day trips and housekeeping was very efficient and non intrusive. I recommend and would stay there again

Ate at the pub twice..good food and excellent service!

We just held our Mother's 75th birthday party here on September 16th and it was fantastic. The room was beautiful, the food was delicious, wine selection was great and the service and staff were awesome.
We had a sit down dinner for 28 people and it went off without a hitch. I live in Calgary so all of the planning was done through phone calls, emails and texts. All of our requests and needs were met, Larry Wiseman the event coordinator was excellent to deal with and when we arrived he and his staff were wonderful in making the evening a success. Hats off to The Guv'nor and I would highly recommend them for any event you may be planning.

Loved our time at this charming hotel in central St John's. Got upgraded to a suite over a booking error which was a pleasant surprise ! Kris at the front desk was wonderful and made us feel very welcome . Pub right next door with fab food (fish cakes yum) and awesome servers. Guest laundry is available which was great for long time travelers. Located central to many things (we had a car ) which was very convenient.

Stayed there at the end of our Newfoundland trip and it was better than expected. The room was clean and spacious and the staff was nice enough. The location isn't the best but if you have a car, it's fine. Would definitely stay there again.

We had a lovely time at the Guv'nor Inn. The price was reasonable, room clean and staff friendly. It was in a lovely quiet area and easy to drive to from airport in our rental car. Lovely meals at the attached Inn.

Room Tip: We like to have a bedside table each side of bed (for hotel feedback). Also...need more lighting for...
