Check in was great, staff were friendly, free parking, free wifi.

The location of the Murray Premises is just about perfect - no driving to go to any of the downtown restaurants or clubs and its almost right on the busy and colorful waterfront.

This is a comfortable hotel located right off the waterfront. Very easy access to the stores and pubs. The room lighting is a little dark, however, the beds were very comfortable. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

This unique property is a must visit for those coming to St. John's. Steeped in rich history, it is centrally located for restaurant goers, shopping divas, and those looking to stomp their feet to live east coast music on famous George Street. Its "downhome" feel and proximity to the harbor eases the stresses of the day to day. The boutique...

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.
