Stanley Murray House located near the coast. Stanley plaza get connected to Murray House making this spot a good walking sight visit along the Stanley main street and coastline. Lots of tourists and local people enjoy dining in this area.

Murray House is in Stanley which is on the south side of Hong Kong Island. See my review on "Stanley" for complete and detailed directions on how to get there. It is worth it, and I recommend it just for the bus ride. At Stanley, one of the things you can see is Murray House. It is not a spectacular... More

The building itself looks interesting and as mentioned by other reviewers, Murray House was initially in Central and they have "moved" it to Stanley. There is nothing much to see though but restaurants only?! It was nice to see people walking their dogs in Stanley.. Anyways, the location is good as you can easily visit all these attractions nearby Murray... More

The Victoria-era building was designed by the British army officers and was built by the Royal Engineers When the building was completed, it was used as an officers' quarter. In the 2nd World War,during the Japanese occupation of Hongkong from 1941-1945,it... More

Splendid looking facade which use't to be in HK itself. Feel a little cheated to find out its been moved and partially rebuilt. Can well imagine it being an officers mess in the past.

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.
