The hotel is old and dated. They have done some nice updates but the single window is very small so lighting in the room is inadequate. The hotel is very well located across from the harbour and close to all the nightlife on George Street and shopping on Water Street. The staff were very nice and helpful and breakfast was... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post your comments about Murray Premises Hotel. I'm glad you enjoyed the location and breakfast. Thank you for noting that you found our staff nice and helpful. I'm sorry you found the hotel old and dated, we've certainly worked hard to turn a 168 year old building into a beautiful hotel....

We arrived around 1:30am, tired and hungry. The young woman at the front desk was cheerful and friendly even at that hour. I made mention of our hunger and, after we went to our room, she came but five minutes later with a plate of muffins,fruit and yogurt for the breakfast buffet. The next day one of the staff was...

Having spent a couple of nights in the Sheraton- a disappointment to say the least- we much preferred our room at Murray Premises during the latter part of our visit to St. John's. Our room in the newer wing was large with a king size bed, full size sofa, fireplace and wall mounted TV. The bathroom was huge and very... More

We stayed at the murray premises jacuzzi suite on a regular basis. We once again stayed Saturday night. The jacuzzi is excellent before you go out. Seeing it is downtown you can walk to all restaurants and to George street. Seeing it is so close you can drop back if needed. Take into a account t the cost for a... More

I have never been able to compare this place to anywhere else I've ever stayed. Why, because nothing else compares. The staff are beyond excellent, almost like family. The atmosphere from the minute you walk into the place, breaths into your soul and tells you to relax. The building itself, spectacular! I awake feeling like I'm in some beautiful attic,... More

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

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
