Murray house is nice and interesting historical building that was moved to Stanley. Its part of the nice seaside path and shopping complex. It is filled with restaurants and shops. It a good place to eat if you are in Stanley and has us a good view of Stanley coast line. However beyond that its really not that interesting.

Good experience if you value history and heritage. Stanley Market is a bit expensive. I recommend shopping elsewhere such as night market.

The building is of historical interest and is a lovely example of British colonial. It is great that rather than consign it to the bulldozers, they moved it from Central to Stanley. Having said that, there is not much to do there apart from eat in one of the expensive restaurants that it houses. If you are in Stanley, check... More

Murray House was one of the oldest surviving public buildings in Hong Kong. It was moved from Central to Stanley in 1982. I like the architecture with its unique heavy stone walls and many flat arched openings. All floors have verandas on all sides with Roman style column as support. It is a must-see place in Stanley and if you... More

This building was moved from Central. Originally built in 1846 as a mess for the officers. It moved to Stanley. Great food from different countries, with terraces and nice sea views.

The Murray House has strong ties to Hong Kong’s colonial past, having long served as an officer’s quarters during the period of British rule. Being built in classical architecture style, it is one of the very oldest surviving structures in Hong Kong. The Murray House was originally located in the Central District but was dissembled and moved to its present... More

Don't be fooled by the Govt insistence that Murray House was reassmebled brick-by-brick. It's pure fantasy. In reality the centre has been formed using a concrete structure with the various external verandhas hung on the outsude like an Xmas tree. It looks nice but a failure for HK heritage preservation. It has a decent range of eateries inside and the... More
