We stayed in two rooms during a vacation in the area and none of our party can stop raving about the hotel. It is historic and beautifully maintained. It feels inside something like a quaint ski hotel, with exposed wood beams. We thought the room had a lot of character and will return because it was a romantic hotel. Parking ample and it is walking distance to all the best restaurants.

Stayed there for a week on a business trip. Nice atmosphere inside the hotel. More like a lodge than a hotel. Friendly staff. The continental breakfast was also good. Very close to the water and within walking distance of lots of restaurants and cafes.

I travel to St John's regularly and have stayed at all of the downtown hotels over the last three years. Having said that the Murray is by far my favourite and is my default location unless they are fully booked. The service is top notch and the charm of an heritage building just cant be beat. Not to mention the heated floors in the bath rooms!

Location is great for walking to just about anywhere in the city and is within 5 minutes of at least a dozen great restaurants and bars. While I stay here for work I've also stayed there with my wife for a romantic weekend and she also feel in love with this place.

Only negative really is noise. There are a few rooms where noise travels more then I'm used to. If you're a light sleeper that might be an issue. While it's never been a real issue for me if you are a light sleeper I would mention it when checking in.

Room Tip: Best location to stay in St John's

This hotel was perfect! When we arrived the staff met us and explained the amenities of the hotel. Free parking, breakfast complimentary, free newspaper, and a common room where there was coffee available all day!
We went to our room and we're pleasantly surprised by it. Large tub, towel warmers , large shower with extra water jets, fireplace, a view of the city waterfront.
The hotel was very quiet and the king size bed was most comfortable. The breakfast room was very inviting and the selection of fruit, scones, bagels, toast was excellent. The boiled eggs were still warm. The coffee, tea, and juice was all good as well.
The staff there was very pleasant and informative.
Mr Os Tilley was a great host in the breakfast room and we certainly enjoyed conversing with him.
The location of the hotel was excellent for our excursions shopping and to enjoy the downtown nite life.
On checkout we must have forgotten our iPad, and the hotel staff called us on our cel phone and we returned to the hotel to pick it up.
The $ rates were excellent and we were very satisfied we got good value for our money.
We will certainly stay here again!

I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay over the long weekend, thanks for the kind words about our location and breakfast service. I did want to respond to one point you made in your review regarding no keyed entrances. At the Murray Premises Hotel guest safety and comfort is paramount and as such we make sure all entrances are indeed accessible by room key card only after 10:30 pm!

Thanks again choosing our hotel and for sharing your valuable feedback!
