I have stayed in the Murray Premises regularly for the past year. The Hotel staff and management have consistently displayed a genuinely warm welcome and have always been extraordinarily helpful in every way, nothing is too much trouble for them. The downtown location is ideal with several top quality bars and restaurants and the historic St John's harbour within a... More

Upon our arrival we were informed that they generously upgraded our room, free of cost. Originally we only booked a single king size bed, but the upgrade came with a spa like bathroom. Which in my option had perfect upgrades for a older hotel. The bathroom had a big tub with jet, a full sized shower, heated floors and a... More

The room is luxurious and cozy (not in size but in feeling). After a couple of nights stay, my husband and I were wondering if we could live here. The location in St John's is ideal being right downtown and close to all of the restaurants, shopping, bars and Signal Hill but still offers a quiet nights sleep. All of... More

We stayed for our third time in the last 3 or 4 years, and I am so glad to report that the Murray's standards are still high. Our room looked like we were the first guests in there. Spotless. The bathroom is huge and I wish we had more time to use the amenities. The jet tub looked inviting, but... More

I worked in St.John's for 4 1/2 months starting in Jan. 2014. My boss put us in at the Murray Premises. He stayed there a few years ago. I was amazed at the comfy, cozy rooms decked with fireplaces and bathtubs with jets. Those jets were a godsend after working long and hard. The hotel is situated perfectly. The famous... More

Some hotels are nice to stay at, well-appointed, but not memorable at all. The best hotels are the places where the rooms are not just comfortable but are unique and the staff is very friendly and helpful and funny and welcoming. That's the Murray Premises. I really do keep coming back to this hotel because it's such a welcoming place.... More

I travel for business often to st johns. The cool history of a converted building lends to its charm. Heated floors in the bathroom and very nice staff. Breakfast is always provides at no cost and the location near historical areas and local restaurants cannot be beat!! Will definitely schedule a return visit.
