My family booked this room for my wife and I's first married night together and I must say, they could not have picked a better place! The service is top notch, the place is beautiful, the room is amazing and the breakfast was delicious! Everything about the room was amazing, including the hot tub, TV, big bed, fresh robes and spacious living quarters! if you haven't been here, you should definitely give the Governor's Suite a try!

My husband and I spent two nights in the Governor' s Suite and it was truly a lovely experience. The room was so spacious and clean and the bed was divine! We really enjoyed the jacuzzi tub and used it both nights.We just had to close the curtains in front of the stained glass because my husband felt silly looking at Jesus while in the jaccuzzi:) My husband loved that there was a big screen TV and I loved the antique furniture. I thought maybe the wallpaper could use some updating, but other than that the decor was fabulous. Brenda was so hospitable and welcoming and we felt right at home. The whole place was decorated for Christmas and looked stunning. We will definitely put this on our list of places to visit again!

The Inn Keeper does a great job with keeping her establishment fresh and clean. Being housed in a former church provides an experience much different from other B&B's...which for us was a very good thing. The location is but steps away from the shops and restaurants that line the main road through Bellevue. Additionally, it is a very short distance to the heart of downtown Cincinnati, its sports venues, shopping and restaurants. Additionally, and just across the river, are the museum of art, conversatory and Eden Park, which has a high point that looks down upon the Ohio River. Additionally, the hilly and chic area of Mt Adams is adjacent to the park and there are several restaurants, shops and historic homes. We have been going to this area on a yearly basis as we particularly enjoy Octoberfest in nearby Covington and the Art in the Park event in Bellvue during early September.

We visited Northern Ky to take in a weekend of Cardnal's vs. Reds Baseball. We were looking for a better value than the institutional hotels in the area and we found it. Christopher's is wonderful. We traveled with another couple so we had two of the three rooms in this wonderful Inn. A converted church, Christopher's is trult unique. Brenda is a wonderful host. Our stay was casual, friendly and as comfortable as we could ask for. ALL I CAN SAY IS IF YOU LIKE B&B'S YOU WILL LOVE CHRISTOPHER'S

We booked the Governors Suite for our anniversary on St Patricks Day!! We also got the B&B riverboat package. This was nice because Brenda booked it for us and gave us the ticket and directions and we had a blast. The place was BEAUTIFUL and room was clean. We enjoyed the breakfast and there were also snacks out and drinks in the fridge. Brenda was so super sweet and helpful!! Since it was our anniversary she even gave us a little cake to take home. It is very nice to stay somewhere where the host is so pleasant. Thanks!!!
