I have to agree with other reviewers who said the website gave a different impression than the actual experience. I had the impression it would be closer to downtown and have more ambiance. The best part of our stay at the Guv'nor was the beds. The room was very hot and we couldn't open the windows. The air conditioner ran constantly(and noisily) with little effect and the fridge didn't work very well. The building is obviously old and a bit run down but the beds and linens were awesome and made for a wonderful night's sleep. The internet worked well and there was little noise from outside the room. A decent place to stay and especially handy if you are delivering kids to MUN.
