The service was rude. Just thinking about my experience upsets me. Management did not help when the reservation was mixed up. In fact, the response to the mixed up room problem was met by various excuses in a very condescending tone.

We held our daughters wedding Rehearsal, and wedding at the Governors inn. The planning went great and Lisa was great to work with as a coordinator and easily accesible via email which is the best way for me to be able to work out details. We had our Wedding rehersal dinner there for about 30 and the food and drinks... More

We had booked a room in the Governor's Inn, because of the positive reviews in Trip advisor. Our room on the 2nd floor was spacious and clean. The furniture remembered of past times, but this is to be expected in a traditional inn like this. We enjoyed our stay. We had evening dinner in the hotel’s restaurant and ordered macaroni... More

We stayed at the Inn over Columbus Day weekend. Our room was #224 which had a tricky lock which was difficult to lock (we informed the owners). Hopefully, this problem is resolved. Otherwise, we found the inn to be exactly what we were looking for....something personal, old, and not commercial. The breakfast was as described...continental but fulfilling. We found the... More

The Governor's Inn is a quaint, lovely looking property that, on the inside, shows a little bit of wear and tear. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly...the restaurant has high quality food, although the live entertainment on the night we ate there was pretty painful. You're right in the downtown (such as it is), but feel secluded, so you've... More

This fine establishment reflects the true traditions of an Inn: An establishment that will feed, wine and water the weary and sore footed and pack them off to a comfortable room and bed with a warm heart and a full belly. Upon arriving at Governors Inn and Restaurant, I was met by Robin, the Restaurant Manager and who I perceive... More

I attended a recent corporate meeting and was pleasantly surprised at the classic New England architecture of the building and beautiful grounds. Unfortunately there were some issues. None of the door stalls in the ladies room closed or locked. The internet connection gave only two bars, so if you have to still conduct business you won't be able to there.... More

Once again we were on the bike and caught in the rain. This year that is no surprise. We could barely see.The black as coal, and there was lightning and thunder all around us. A giant Oak or maple had just been struck by lightning moments before we drove by it, and it lay almost covering the road, but not... More

Stayed here at the last minute as we needed to get out of driving in a downpour. Rates were comparable to the chain hotels in the area and we were pleasantly surprised with the room. Although our first room had no hot water for some strange reason we were promptly assisted in moving to another room. The room was huge... More

This place was my home for the Easter holiday weekend and it was great. The room was clean and spacious. The Inn is more that a typical b&b. There is a full dining room / restaurant and bar with excellent food. Very quaint and comfortable. The grounds are also very nice and quiet especially for being in a downtown area.... More
