This hotel of incomparable charm is the perfect place to stay in St. John. Wooden ceiling beams, quality rooms and services. Very unique. If only the breakfast was more then continental it would reach perfection. I rated excellent all the same.

We enjoyed our room at the Murray Premises, the view was amazing! Alana was phenomenal and we had the most pleasant experience with her! She truly made our stay enjoyable! All hotels should have someone like Alana greeting there guests! Hotel was great location!

We booked the Murray Premises last minute due to travel changes. Check in was a pleasure and we were upgraded. Our room was amazing - the sitting area was a large as a regular hotel room and this suite had 2 bathrooms with soaker tubs. Hotel is well kept, clean and upscale. Continental breakfast included lots of fresh fruit, berries,... More

My wife and I went to St. John's for a few days. Enjoyed our entire stay. The murray premises hotel is an excellent hotel. The only poor thing is the breakfast. It is free however I would be willing to pay for more the a continental breakfast. Very nice and pleasant staff. And you are the best area in town.

I have stayed at this hotel a few times now, every visit a different room and by different I mean completely different.. All the rooms have been very nice, modern with an old rustic feel.. You could not ask for a better location. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel anytime in St. John's...

Great historical hotel, with friendly staff, very clean and well appointed. Our room, while very charming, was poorly lit and the air conditioner was quite noisy. Loved the bathroom, roomy, great tub and shower!
