Good basic facilities and adjoined restaurants so a few busy days can be spent inside the hotel. Certain rooms come with a board room attached which is really useful as a space to working away and can be a great place to hold meetings for 8 people. There are good restaurants and coffee shops near by all serving a range of food for every diet.… Read more

Stayed at the Murray Premises Hotel for two nights. I love the history and this place has such character... Staff were very friendly. Rooms were clean. Jetted bathtub was lovely. Located on the waterfront and within walking distance of restaurants and shops and cafes and the famous George Street! You should go!

This is a great hotel with a fantastic location. Check-in was good and very efficient. The room was in the third floor and i must say it i was very clean and unique. The only problem was that it said breakfast included and it was if you wanted to wait until 8 o’clock which is the time that they serve it. This is a big inconvenience for the early morning traveller who needed to get to the airport or like my husband who had an early meeting. This was one of the reasons that we chose this hotel because of the breakfast being included. Like i said it was an inconvenient for us as then we had to find another place to get our breakfast. Overall it was a nice hotel. Read less

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
