Murray Premises is a unique hotel in an old warehouse facing Harbour Drive and its restaurants overlooking the harbour. Large rooms with high ceilings and exposed wooden beams, some with fireplaces and hot tubs. Great location, friendly and helpful staff. Large courtyard for evening drinks and casual meals when the weather is warm. Close to everything.

Most visitors to St. John's will make it to George Street at some point during the trip. This hotel is located near the entrance to George, on the water in a renovated historic building. The rooms are unique; not your cookie cutter hotel. Mine had high ceilings with wooden beams, a fireplace and a lovely stone outer wall. A spacious... More

Ideally located right down town next to the harbour this hotel makes a great location to base your explorations of St. John's. There was a lot to walk to and St. George's St is just a block away if that is your thing! The room was large, but very dark, with a small view of the parking lot. The bathroom... More

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

Dear Guest, I'm sorry your stay at Murray Premises Hotel did not meet your expectations. Room 101 is a new room (less than a year old) and is located in the new conference section of the hotel. We designed these business suites with the corporate traveler in mind, the conference table is designed to complement the meeting room next door.... 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 found the room to be lovely and very quiet and the front desk staff upon our arrival was so very welcoming and accommodating.
