Murray Premises Hotel is well located, close to the harbour and in the middle of the city. St. John's has several modern hotels but the choice of quality boutique hotel is more limited. Murray Premises is an historic hotel right in the center of the action. It may be noisy at night when the weather is fine. Ask for an...

Murray Premises Hotel is in a historic building on the St. John's waterfront. I chose the hotel because of its history. The building still has the exposed beams and character from its warehouse days. Since the hotel's on the waterfront, almost everything in St. John's is uphill, but Water Street with good restaurants and gift shops is just out the...

Located right in downtown St. John's; just a few block from lots of great restaurants and pubs. Staff was friendly and helpful upon check-in. Room was spacious but did not have a view, except for, well... the glass walled shower. That's right, you can see right into the shower from the main part of the room. Odd. Especially for an...

Murray Premises Hotel has a lot going for it.

Right in the harbor area and a wonderful hotel property. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly, rooms were very comfortable and clean. Continental breakfast and parking were included. Not an inexpensive hotel, but worth it if you're not a frequent visitor to St. John's.

I loved staying at this hotel. The building has had various uses and dates from the mid 1800's. It's full of character with exposed beams and sloping floors.
