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 reading in bed.

While I haven't had the pleasure of staying at The Guv'nor Inn located in beautiful St. John's, NL I have had the pleasure of speaking with Larry a nice young man who was extremely helpful and accommodating with regards to my request..

I recently won a contest from OZ FM whereby the prize was dinner for two at The Guv'nor Inn, I was unable to use the prize and asked Larry if another family member could and without hesitation he said no problem and made the arrangements..

I'm definitely going to make The Guv'nor Inn my next hotel stay when visiting St. John's. Thank you Larry for being such a gentleman and providing such excellent service.

Cheers! Marlene Butler
