I recently stayed at the Murray Premises Hotel for two nights while in St. John's for business, and it was a very comfortable and conveniently located place to stay. The check-in was fast, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms can be described as up-scale rustic, with lots of amenities including in-room coffee, heated towel rack, stable no-cost wifi, a tub with jets, a small fridge, an electric fireplace and very comfortable beds. There is a guest lounge area across from the main desk that has comfortable seating, a Keurig maker with tea, coffee and hot chocolate pods along with snacks/fruit. I had a mini-harbour view :-), and the hotel is just steps away from restaurants, bars and shops. There is an associated restaurant, EVOO, that you can get to without going outside, and it was stellar. This is a great place to stay! Read less

This hotel is excellently situated being surrounded by good restaurants and bars. The room was large and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast is continental but adequate with plenty of bagels and croissants to be had.

In addition, a highlight of our stay was chatting with Oz at breakfast every morning. A delightful man with great input, and a friendly smile. Highly recommended if you are looking for a nice small hotel with great location - and a wonderful breakfast. Also, there was a nice space for a meeting and we saw two different groups having a meeting. Read less
