From checkin to checkout this hotel was 5 Star the whole way! Greeted by a friendly desk agent, he told me everything we needed to know for our stay, including local events for the weekend! Once I opened the door to the room, WOW was all I could think. The decor is pristine, exposed wood, fireplace, cozy furniture, and a... More

We enjoyed our room and stay at Murrarys...our view was very nice, we were on the 4th floor..corner unit, overlooking the harbour. The hotel has easy access to many restaurants. The morning breakfast staff very friendly and helpful.

Loved the Murray premises hotel on the waterfront in St. John's. It was within walking distance of all the shops, across the street from a great boat tour and close to countless restaurants. The staff at the hotel were friendly and incredibly helpful. And the continental breakfast much nicer than most. I can't say enough about this hotel.

Have stayed at Murray Premises 6 or 7 times. Every room has been unique, no just the same old hotel room. At times travelling too much for business, it's great to have the change. Plus rooms are always quiet. Staff are always courteous and very helpful. Location is excellent. Right on the waterfront and very close to fine restaurants.

Nice hotel. Comfortable once you orient yourself. Steps from George Street and the restaurants, Avoid room 208. It is across from the vending machines and ice machine. There is also a noisy machine on the floor above that starts up every 30 minutes or so all day land night. The staff changed our room when we asked. .

We love hotels in converted buildings. This one is in a converted warehouse just across from the docks in the harbor at St. John's. The room we had was a spacious third floor room facing the water. The open ceiling follows the roof line which is interesting, but means lots of nooks and crannies in the room, which eats light,... More

We loved the building. At the time we booked the room, we laughed at having a jacuzzi in the room, but after three days of hiking, that jacuzzi felt really good. The room was a combination of nicely appointed modern conveniences like multijet showers, towel warmers, fine linens and historical beams and brick. The staff is friendly and helpful. The... More

We stayed over at Murray Premises for the weekend. Probably the nicest location in town : in front of St. John's bay and next to Water Street, the main street. Staff helpful and friendly, free breakfast. However, if we compare to other hotels in major canadian cities, this hotel is over priced and need serious upgrade.
