Our contact at Murray Place was very accommodating, professional and helpful and ensured we were well looked after. The rooms are very large and clean and decorated with charm. In addition to accommodations, we used the meeting space in the hotel. We had a... More

I coordinated a business event for my company and required a block of rooms. My contact person at the Murray was extremely helpful and went out of her way to accommodate my crazy schedule by staying late to meet me in the evening as opposed to business hours. During the time of our stay; my group commented again and again... More

I have been travelling to St. John's for several years on business and I have never been able to find the right combination of amenities, comfort, and location in a hotel until now with the Murray Premises. The rooms are clean, the staff is attentive, and being right in the middle of downtown allows you to explore the best parts... More

My husband and I purchased a gift certificate on a holiday promotion to stay here for a night away from the kids. We used it for a night we were going downtown for a concert. We had no problems with check-in (though we potentially got booked into a lesser room than our certificate was for; if so, that snafu was... More

The looks of the room was great. The location is very nice. But I had problems in the room and had to fix them myself. Although I liked the wooden beams atmosphere and the general looks, I will try a different place when I return. My non smoking room really did smell tobacco, wouach",

My husband and I annually choose a hotel downtown to spend the night and do our Christmas shopping. This year it was the Murray Premises. They have excellent service, superb rooms, quaint decor.

Stayed there twice while on business in St Johns. The staff were very helpful. The location is excellent for downtown St John's. The breakfast is not the best but you're in the middle of town so no problems going out for food.

This place is awesome as for decor. Very warm and cozy. I highly recomomend to stay here if you want to be near everything. Had a great view of the ship coming into port. Staff was nice but free buffet was gross.
