The Murray Premises Hotel is in a great location in St. John's. We were able to walk to restaurants and shopping in minutes. The room was fairly big and charming with a cosy feel to it and had a mini-fridge with complimentary bottled water. The bed was very comfortable. We were a little disappointed in the bathroom in that the... More

Myself and my husband stayed here last week for our anniversary. The room was very nice and very large with a jacuzzi tub in the room. The staff were very helpful and nice,especially Chris as he helped my husband set up a surprise for me before I got there! Great location with lots of restaurants to choose from.

Our room was large with a fireplace, two person jetted tub and large shower. We had large windows that looked into the parking lot of the hotel restaurant. At night, it could get a tad noisy from the restaurant. Also, if you go, request a room on the top floor. We were on the second floor and could hear everything... More

As my title suggests, this hotel is located in the best part of downtown St. John's. If it had not been for awful weather, we could've enjoyed walks to pretty much any place worth noting without issue. Even with the bad weather we were able to get to great restaurants on Water St and Geore St in minutes. The Iceberg... More

Well, this hotel was a nice change from several nights in European style hotels. The MP is located smack dab in downtown St John's, and is within walking distance of all kinds of shopping, bars, and restaurants. The lobby area is unusual in that depending on what side of the hotel you enter, dictates if you go up or down... More

We stayed six nights at the Murray Premises- 3 business 3 personal. This is a beautiful historical building. Large rooms with comfy beds and great spa soaker tubs. Perfectly located for wandering around the area and easy to get on highway to do out of town exploring. We had a courtyard view and although some have complained about noise we... More

The rooms are big and comfy with a jacuzzi tub and a fireplace. Even tho it was 80 outside the fireplace was nice. They need a new elevator tho as it is very creaky and you wonder if you are going to get to your floor. Breakfast in the morning was really tasty too.

Ideally placed within walking distance to lots of restaurants and well placed for a walk along the harbour (when it's not raining). Really nice friendly staff. Good breakfast. Lovely room - had a queen room with a harbour view. Lovely to soak in the jacuzzi after a rainy day. Would recommend this hotel to anyone
