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.

A truly magnificent hotel located right where you want to be in St. John's, in the heart of historic downtown. The combination of modern decor/technology (towel warmer!!!) and history (National Historic Site of Canada), this hotel is a must stay. My wife and I stayed here for one night away from children and it was extremely relaxing and romantic with...

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.

We had a lovely time. The executive room with the corner jacuzzi was fabulous. Loved the jacuzzi, fireplace, show, comfy bed, and the list goes on.
