Stay away from room 101. You enter the room by walking through a conference room, and once inside, it's like being in a jail cell. The room is small, dark and narrow, with one tiny window. As I sit here writing this review, I feel the walls closing in on me. I went to the front desk to inquire about... More

This was our first trip to beautiful St-John's . We were there for a congress. We loved this hotel, very clean, quite and best location. It's near to everything in middle of downtown. Few steps from George street, few hundred meters from convention center and right in front of harbor. The front desk people were really helpful and kind. We... More

My husband and I spent a couple of too short days at the Murray. We travel fairly often and I have been to all ten Provinces in Canada and many beach resorts, and can honestly say that our stay at the Murray was one of the best for many reasons! The staff at the front desk were so very helpful!... More

I absolutely love this place. I've stayed here twice now and both times have been great. The staff is very nice but the hotel rooms are just beautiful. They are built from old wood and are just so warm feeling. Each room comes with a fire place for the colder months and the rooms are larger then average hotel rooms.... More

This was our first trip to St. John's (well, to Newfoundland), and what a great introduction to the place and the people. The staff were friendly and helpful, the place is located right smack downtown, within walking distance of Water Street shops and restaurants, and George Street bars and clubs. All we wanted was slightly better weather, but you can... More

I am presently in the hotel. This place is a wee gem, handy for everything entertainment wise in St John's. Just wish I was staying longer. The staff are great and the hotel spotless. I have a suite. It's pretty big, the bed was very comfortable and a very large en suite. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We stayed at Murray Premises August 2014 while the George Street Festival was on. We found the room to be lovely and very quiet and the front desk staff upon our arrival was so very welcoming and accommodating. Since the hotel is situated right downtown at the harbour front we were able to walk to restaurants, pubs and many of... More

Loved the quiet simplicity of this hotel. The room, comfy, well- appointed and interesting with fab ensuite bathroom: a step to the wharf and to Water Street: the easy arrangement for a whale watch trip to Witless Bay: the competence of the staff. Excellent and first class without the pretension of the large chains. We highly recommend Murray Premises.

Our hotel room preserved the historic feeling of the original building. In fact, it took my breath away upon entering it for the first time. Yes, it was dark but I loved the woodwork, quiet, bathroom and view. Slept great! Super location for exploring both the waterfront and the night life and quaint streets of St. John's. Breakfast was just... More

Best location, excellent parking, very large room (#216), very quiet even though close to Water street, best hotel bed I've slept in, good TV, WIFI works well, good access to street level, shower pressure a bit too strong, a bit worn, very clean, would stay here next time, quiet AC.
