All our rooms feature flat screen TVs, superior bedding, free WIFI, in-room coffee pots, air conditioning, fridges and microwaves. Ask about our monthly, and group rates. We even have special package deals that combine room, meals and an event such as golf or cod fishing for the perfect break in St. John's. 

The Luxurious Sweeney Suite

Our prized luxury accommodation, the Sweeney Suite, offers the ultimate in classic opulence and is a favorite of brides and grooms. With its comfortable seating area and sumptuous touches like a jacuzzi, queen-size bed, white terry towel robes, and fireplace, nothing says “it’s a special time” quite like The Guv’nor’s Sweeney Suite. If you're planning a little romance or you just want a place to stay that’s a cut above, check into the Sweeney Suite. It’s a special space. 

A Little More Private and Secluded

For guests who value added privacy, our courtyard rooms feature individual entrances and parking just outside your door. They are a little removed from the hustle and bustle for extra peace and quiet. 

We're proud of our courtyard rooms - they're unique to The Guv'nor.
