Wonderful location. Good-sized room with large bathroom with good shower and bath. Staff friendly and helpful when asked for information about sightseeing. We were in the newer section, in room 424 (I think) and I would not recommend this room as it has no windows looking out. There are 2 windows high up but you can see nothing, so there... More

Stayed for 2 nights at Murray Premises and can't say enough about it... great location -- 1 minute walk to the harbor, George Street, and walking distance to Signal Hill and Quidi Vidi... beautiful rooms with Jacuzzi tub, fireplace, great shower. Extremely helpful staff -- gave excellent advice on a number of things. Would stay there again in a second.

This was our first time in St. John's, and I was there for business (my husband tagged along). The Murray Premises is in an *excellent* location - no need to rent a car if you are staying in St. John's proper; but if you do, they offer free parking. Cabs are always readily available and relatively inexpensive to take you... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for posting your comments on Murray Premises Hotel. I'm delighted you enjoyed the location and overall all the hotel has to offer. I'm sorry your room was not adequate, each of our 69 rooms are unique with no two rooms alike due to the architectural design of the building. As you noted some rooms are smaller... More

For the first few nights in St Johns this is a perfect location right downtown. One minute walk from the waterfront, many local restaurants & pubs. Restaurant access right in the lobby and another directly outside in the courtyard - our room faced the courtyard. Two minute walk from George street if you are into that. Super friendly staff. We...

First time we have stayed in this St. John's hotel. Room was very capacious, comprising bed area, separate sitting area, (although it also contains the hot tub) and separate washroom. Owed to the fact that this is a heritage building, the windoows are small, providing little daylight - and the elctric lighting is pretty dim. Admittedly, however, the rain and... More

The Murray Premises Hotel has a number of great features: clean, unique, rustic. The location is super convenient to the harbor, restaurants, and shops. But, the location is so noisy, I would think twice before staying there again. It is situated in between noisy bars with music. On one night, the loudest music, right under our courtyard window, did not... More

Situated in an ideal location, Murray Premises provided a great stop on our holiday. Terrific large rooms, heated bathroom floors, comfy beds, great service and hospitality! Now if they could only do something about St John's "spontaneous" weather!

A charming hotel on the harbour that is close to everything! It is a lovely historic site turned into a 5 star hotel. The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed, jacuzzi tube and large bathroom. It was also nice to have the fireplace. The continental breakfast was good. I would suggest a room facing the courtyard vs the... More

Historic and old world feel. Large traditional rooms. Free and good wifi connection. Adequate buffet breakfast. Ideal location for business and leisure needs. Will use again. Connected Gypsy tea room restaurant is excellent for food and service.

Love the location, close to shopping and Restaurants. The waterfront view, rooms are fabulous especially the bathrooms! Fantastic place for staying in comfort while attending a concert, so handy Mile One and of course George Street. Porters and Front Desk Clerks are extremely knowledgable and friendly. Always have a great stay!
