There's no doubt that the Murray Premises is a great hotel. The building itself has lots of history, lots of character and it's nice to stay somewhere that doesn't feel like a cookie-cutter space. We stayed three nights in room 308. It overlooks the courtyard, has a whirlpool bath in the washroom, a really big (and quiet) fridge and a...

Rooms are beautiful, cozy and lots of space. This is a beautiful spot to stay. Our room had glass doors to the room to the bathtub. Excellent location for downtown St. John's. Staff was pleasant! My husband and I stayed here for one night away from children and it was extremely relaxing and romantic.

What a beautiful hotel- we had a king room- it was very spacious, bed was SUPER comfy, lovely large bathroom, and the style is just lovely- exposed wood beams, brick- really shows the history and charm of this old building. Walking distance to George+ Duckworth streets, so close to shopping fabulous restaurants, and of course the pubs.

The staff were so friendly and nice and provided useful tips for our trip. The room and building was beautiful. The Continental Breakfast is more then you would expect. Breakfast was more like an amazing buffet.

Fantastic stay. Stayed in executive king suite room. Beautiful room, decent view of the waterfront. Extremely comfortable bed. Ended up extending our stay an extra night. I would definitely go back. Booked our trip through booking.com, was easy and stress free. Hotel front desk was very helpful and pleasant and the room was immaculate.

I've stayed at the Murray Premises multiple times over the years. I really love the rooms and comfiest beds, great having the electric fireplace too. The restaurants have great food. Only downside is breakfast you get one included, but not appealing. Otherwise 2 thumbs up !

If you like simplicity but absolutely charming room, this is the place for you. Close to the waterfront and to the action of Georges' street. Try the O'Reilly Pub. A nice walk to Signal Hill - a must see view. The staff friendly and always ready to help.
