Excellent hotel. Can't say enough good things about our 3 day stay. The hotel is conveniently located downtown and beautifully designed and appointed. Rooms are spacious, immaculate and very comfortable. All staff are very welcoming and helpful. A special shout out to GM Steve Denty who went above and beyond the call of duty to rectify a minor glitch. Highly... More

This is one of our favorite hotels ever! Our room was a wonderful combination of spacious, cozy, modern, with a touch of the old. The people at the desk were ever so helpful whenever we got a little confused, misplaced something, wanted suggestions for a place to eat, etc., etc. The restaurant was perfect if it was raining outside, the...

Just a quick overnight but very impressed by the room, the atmosphere, the location, and the staff. Our room was so comfortable and well-outfitted. Wish we could have stayed longer, but we this hotel will be a must when we return!

Beautiful heritage site in a restored fishing building. The old beams are beautifully preserved and you are centrally located in one of north Americas oldest cities. Service is very responsive and helpful. Beds comfortable and rooms quiet.

Staying at the Murray Premises not only put us in a great location to enjoy St. John's best but gave us a glimpse of this great city's history. The hallways should be explored for archival photos and treasures from these buildings' yesteryear. And great applause to the architects and designers who masterfully created large and comfortable rooms in and around... More

Ideally located for exploring historic downtown St. John's. The rooms are tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are fabulous; large jetted tubs to soak in and a towel warmer so you can wrap yourself in toasty warmth after your bath. Complementary tea, coffee and healthy snacks in the lobby area are a great bonus! I'd highly recommend this hotel... More

We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of August/beginning of September. The location was fantastic, right in the middle of everything and close to great restaurants and shops. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was very large with a comfy bed. The style of the hotel is a bit older and some things could... More
