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...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

We stayed here for 1 night and wished it could have been longer. The room was big and airy, had a comfy bed and good shower. There were rocking chairs outside our door and a table if we wanted to sit out and watch everyone go by - or listen to the music being played on the street- we luckily...

Poor room ventelation and condition ! Bath room facet handle came off in my hand, found fish hook in the carpet. They moved us to another room but they had to fix the plumbing first. Room smelled like bleach and was hot. It was in the 90's outside. No amenities in the room.

Hotel was very unique. Loved the old antiques that decorated the hotel. Very well kept and it was fun trying to imagine the hotel during the gold rush days with its interesting ways to get to each floor. The breakfast is VERY good but could start a little earlier. WE wanted to get an early start for Yosemite but breakfast...
