Have stayed at Murray Premises 6 or 7 times. Every room has been unique, no just the same old hotel room. At times travelling too much for business, it's great to have the change. Plus rooms are always quiet. Staff are always courteous and very helpful. Location is excellent. Right on the waterfront and very close to fine restaurants.

Nice hotel. Comfortable once you orient yourself. Steps from George Street and the restaurants, Avoid room 208. It is across from the vending machines and ice machine. There is also a noisy machine on the floor above that starts up every 30 minutes or so all day land night. The staff changed our room when we asked. .

We love hotels in converted buildings. This one is in a converted warehouse just across from the docks in the harbor at St. John's. The room we had was a spacious third floor room facing the water. The open ceiling follows the roof line which is interesting, but means lots of nooks and crannies in the room, which eats light,...

Thank you for submitting your review and sharing your thoughts with your fellow travelers. It sounds like our boutique property - located in a National Historic Site - resonated with you.

We loved the building. At the time we booked the room, we laughed at having a jacuzzi in the room, but after three days of hiking, that jacuzzi felt really good. The room was a combination of nicely appointed modern conveniences like multijet showers, towel warmers, fine linens and historical beams and brick. The staff is friendly and helpful. The...

We spent three nights at the Murray Premises and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This hotel was very unique as its decor was a blend of the old world and new world.

We stayed over at Murray Premises for the weekend. Probably the nicest location in town : in front of St. John's bay and next to Water Street, the main street. Staff helpful and friendly, free breakfast. However, if we compare to other hotels in major canadian cities, this hotel is over priced and need serious upgrade.

We spent 2 nights here on our 1st trip to St.John's. Location is excellent for walking to. Restaurants and night life on George street. Superior breakfast as well. Loved the charming rooms.

Our group of nine stayed there and asked for a 2:00 pm checkout (we had to fly out at midnight the next day). The hotel staff said no problem, we would just be charged a "late checkout" fee.

The location of this hotel is perfect. It has a court yard that connects directly to bustling Water St as well as being directly across the street from The Keg and Jackastor's on Harbour St. Unfortunately the location also means there is some road noise of trucks servicing the harbour and the aforementioned bars across the street. Normally the proximity...
