Hotel's Favourite
The room was exceptional. We had an eclectic fireplace, jacuzzi, mini-fridge etc. Check-in and out were really smooth. There is a lounge off the lobby with fruit, cookies, coffee & tea, newspapers etc, Also there is a business centre nearby. The next-morning continental buffet is a real treat. And the added bonus is free parking. A historic property which offers a real feel of old St. John's.

Stayed here during the peak of Covid restrictions to celebrate our engagement. The Murray Premises St. John’s was the PERFECT choice. The heritage of the building and the staff are amazing. It’s immaculately clean, safe and right downtown. Complementary breakfast was delicious and such a perk! Let the staff know if you are celebrating.

Couldn't have asked for a better location, but it's not very clean and is really showing it's age. We arrived around midnight and when we got to our room, there was no soap in the bathroom. Figured we'd grab a bite to eat and picked up soap on our way back to the room. Upon closer inspection, the bathroom had not been cleaned at all. We had clean towels and a dirty toilet and vanity. Lysol wipes to the rescue! Never mentioned it to the front desk as there was little they could've done after midnight. Overall the hotel is really showing it's age and needs a good clean from top to bottom and some new carpet etc.
