Property was very upscale in my book. The staff was courteous and helpful. We drove a large vehicle so parking was a bit hard, but doable. This hotel is in the heart of St. John's, so walking was our choice. The restaurants in the vicinity were spectacular. We had so much good food, it was hard to leave! Our room... More

The modern amenities like heated floors and heated towel rack but the overall feel of the place was oldish. We stayed in a room with a Jacuzzi tub and it had a harbour view, although pretty expensive it was nice and clean, and the parking was free!

The room, the view and the service was absolutely first class. The staff from the front desk to the breakfast room and the room attendants all went that extra mile to make us feel welcome and comfortable. If you are visiting St. John,s the Murray Pemises is the place to stay, I know I will.

Had a wonderful stay at the Murray Premises. We had a King Executive room. The room was very spacious, the old wooden beams give it a nice touch. The jacuzzi corner tub was nice for a couples soak, it's a bit noisy with the jets running but I think that's the way those tubs are. The fireplace looks very nice... More

An excellent hotel right downtown. Lots of character in a converted industrial building. Restoration was very tastefully done. We were upgraded as the hotel wasn't too full and had a lovely large room. Very friendly staff. No complaints.

Historic atmosphere in an industrial complex that is now a luxury hotel. Friendly staff, great location downtown next to the harbour, and a great room. Worth the stay. Walking around the immediate area is a pleasure, between busy Water Street and the harbour. We will visit again.
