We were travelling on our way to the High Sierras and spent only one night here, finding it acceptable. We had room 10, Dr Gunn's room. It was spacious and clean enough with an Ok bathroom. A king bed which was comfortable, but there was a lot of noise from traffic, all through most of the night, we had not... More

We stayed here for one night on our trip through the Gold Country. This is a very old place and it shows (in a good way). If you removed the TV, AC and electric lights you could imagine you were back in the 1800's. We stayed in balcony room 11, which was very nicely decorated and comfortable. The balcony is... More

I have reviewed this hotel twice in the past. Unfortunately this review will not be as good as my previous reviews. I booked the Gunn House well in advance as our past experiences with the hotel had been excellent. Unknown to us the hotel had changed owners 3 months ago and if I am totally honest the overall standards have... More

The positive was the wonderfully awesome, freshly cooked morning breakfast. I would give 5 circles for that. It was the best part of staying at the Gunn House Hotel. I stayed with my daughter for my birthday. We stayed in the back by the pool on the top floor. Our room had a broken "sliding" shower door on the tub,... More

We made a reservation for our stay and received a confirmation number. We were attending a wedding in Jamestown for family. We let the hotel know that we would not be checking in until 10 o'clock in the evening. Upon our arrival at 9:30 o'clock that evening the office was closed and we had to call a number. That is...

I am most likely biased in my review as I have stayed here over 20 times. I am basing the current experience against the way it was prior to the sale to new owners. There is a minor upgrade to the bathroom (room 4) with the addition of one hand rail. It is not in the shower but on the... More

We stayed here for one night. Room 21 was big enough with two double beds. Air con was placed on top of one of them and was so loud. Lucky we could open the window but the street noise is off putting even though this room is at the back. Beds were lovely and comfortable. Bathroom was fine. Lots of... More

This hotel is in downtown with easy walking to everything. The hotel is cute, good decor, and great outdoor seating. Attractive pool area in back, will make you want to hang around the property. The owners are super friendly but appear to be new and starting their careers, and therefore on a learning curve. We had a glitch with the... More
