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

A unique and interesting hotel. The converted rooms are a good size with exposed beams and other interesting features, including the in-room electric fireplace. The service is friendly and personalized; nothing amazing, but all good. The location is excellent, even given the compact nature of the St. John’s downtown, though a large new building across the street seems to block... More

Stayed at the Murray a number of times. Quirky style hotel but generally large rooms with traditional furnishings. Friendly staff. Ideal location in St John's for business and leisure. Lots of restaurants and bars adjacent to hotel.

I stayed in this hotel with a friend in August 2014. The location was central, the room was spacious and clean and I liked the way they combined modernity with traditional features.

Wow what a place, the upgrade to a suite was a bonus. The room was fantastic. Located right in the downtown area it is convenient for everything downtown, but the hotel is an oasis of quiet. Staff were wonderful and friendly and a good complimentary breakfast to set you up for a day of sightseeing
