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.

I have stayed in this hotel overnight, every 2 to 3 weeks, for the last two years. I love the layout of the hotel and the rooms. It has a great location in downtown St John's just across from the harbor. You can walk to most anywhere from the hotel for business, restaurants and shopping. The rooms are unique with... More

My 100th review and I was kind of hoping for a good one - I wasn't disappointed... Situated on the water front of St Johns so great for bars, restaurants and watching the boats. It's an old warehouse that has been converted to rooms. A very distinctive building. Owing to flight issues I arrived here a lot later than planned... More

Very helpful front desk, huge rooms bathroom and Jacuzzi what more do you want - perhaps a little more to breakfast? Great location for walking to all the bars and restaurants that St Johns has to offer so perhaps a small breakfast is the order of the day, smart thinking by the hotel. So I say hurray for Murray.

We booked here because of the numerous positive TripAdvisor reviews and found it entirely satisfactory for our overnight needs. The staff accommodated an early check-in and arranged an early morning transfer to the airport with cheerful reassurances. The room was unique in our experience, up under the fir roof structure, with exposed beams and pipes -- a wee bit dark... More

Great , centrally located hotel, 1 block from George Street (pub central). Stayed in LARGE Executive room #214: courtyard view, message tub (not used), very large bathroom, and large bedroom. Excellent staff, weak breakfast.

We stayed for 2 nights in this hotel. The location is convenient but the staff, especially the manager, Kelley were fabulous. Kelley was so friendly and helpful. She certainly made our visit to St. John's a highlight of our trip to Newfoundland
