“Not sure if I should return”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

The looks of the room was great.
The location is very nice.
But I had problems in the room and had to fix them myself.
Although I liked the wooden beams atmosphere and the general looks, I will try a different place when I return.
My non smoking room really did smell tobacco, wouach",

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. I'm sorry you had to experience being next to another guest in the hotel who decided to disregard our hotel's non-smoking policy, I can assure you we have a ZERO tolerance for guests smoking in our hotel and it was addressed immediately. I'm glad we were able to connect since posting your comments and I look forward to your return next month to give the hotel another opportunity.
Regards,
GM

My husband and I annually choose a hotel downtown to spend the night and do our Christmas shopping. This year it was the Murray Premises. They have excellent service, superb rooms, quaint decor. High-class restaurants, boutiques and bakeries are within walking distance. And it is right across the street from famous George Street. We usually pick a different hotel every year, but we plan to return to Murray Premises.

Stayed there twice while on business in St Johns. The staff were very helpful. The location is excellent for downtown St John's. The breakfast is not the best but you're in the middle of town so no problems going out for food.

This place is awesome as for decor. Very warm and cozy. I highly recomomend to stay here if you want to be near everything. Had a great view of the ship coming into port. Staff was nice but free buffet was gross.

Dear Guest
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted you found our hotel warm and cozy. I'm sorry the breakfast did not meet your approval, we do have freshly baked muffins and scones delivered daily, which we feel is a great addition; along with our fruit, cereals, yogurts, bagels and breads, we do try to offer our guests a good variety.
We are constantly trying to improve, so any suggestions would be welcomed.
Again, many thanks for your comments.
Regards,
GM

I have stayed in this hotel on quite a few occasions and will be there again next week. Well located, reasonably priced hotel in excellent downtown location in St. John's. Attentive staff, spotlessly clean rooms full of character with excellent amenities. You can walk everywhere because of its central location I can't praise the hotel or its people highly enough. You won't be disappointed.
