Wanted a room for a night out on the town so this location was perfect for us because it is right across the road from George St. Our room was beautiful and large with a separate area for the jacuzzi and the washroom had a large glass/tile shower as well! The room also had an electric fireplace and a mini... More

Stayed at the Murray Premises two nights while in town to see the Tragically Hip. The hotel was great and served all of our needs. The rooms are great and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is located close to Water street and George street. I will stay again when in St. John's.

The room was not warm upon entry which made for a bad start. The location was really noisy. I stayed on what is referred to as the harbor side which overlooked a parking lot, a busy road with busy restaurants. I will say I did enjoy by meal at one of them The Keg which was latterly feet away. Not... More

Thank you very much for your review. My apologies that your stay was not all that you had hoped for.

Your feedback is certainly noted and we will make a greater effort to more closely monitor in-room temperatures prior to guest arrivals. Our location... More

Thank you for the feedback, I'm so glad that the room you stayed in to celebrate your birthday was "perfect"!

Stayed here for a night in February. The room was spacious with a large hot tub in the corner. Showers have multiple jets (which we have never seen before) and the old feed of the exposed beams almost take you back in time. Highly recommended for a getaway, relaxation, or if you need a place to stay while in town... More

Thank you! Your review nicely summed up a lot of what we feel is special about our hotel in just a few sentences. The exposed wooden beams and historical feel of the property do blend nicely with our modern amenities and prime location to provide a unique atmosphere in downtown St. John's. Glad you enjoyed your stay and took the... More

Booked this on a whim to see a concert at the near by arena. Beautiful historic property. Had a room on the third floor, queen bed, Jacuzzi tub, and a little fireplace. The arched ceilings added to the old world charm. Very close to George Street, the main lobby doors locked after 11 and you have to swipe your key... More

We stayed in a King Executive room. It was cozy, not in a small way, but in a warm and inviting sort of way. The corner tub was clean and an addition that vastly separates this hotel from other rooms at the same price at hotels in the area such as the Sheraton and Marriott. This hotel is old (we... More

One of my all-time favourite hotels. Beautiful architecture and great amenities. The exposed wood beams created a rustic feel. It was great for a romantic weekend away. Growing up in Nfld, my husband was amazing that the museum held such a great hotel. Walking distance to everything. We were pleasantly surprised and would recommend this hotel over and over. We...
