The room, the view and the service was absolutely first class. The staff from the front desk to the breakfast room and the room attendants all went that extra mile to make us feel welcome and comfortable. If you are visiting St. John,s the Murray Pemises is the place to stay, I know I will.

My wife and I visit St John's several times a year. Sometimes with the kids and their sports, but a couple times it is just us so we like to stay in nicer spots than the teams tend to stay in. This year we decided to try the Murray Premises and I must say we were very impressed. We stayed...

Had a wonderful stay at the Murray Premises. We had a King Executive room. The room was very spacious, the old wooden beams give it a nice touch. The jacuzzi corner tub was nice for a couples soak, it's a bit noisy with the jets running but I think that's the way those tubs are. The fireplace looks very nice...

An excellent hotel right downtown. Lots of character in a converted industrial building. Restoration was very tastefully done. We were upgraded as the hotel wasn't too full and had a lovely large room. Very friendly staff. No complaints.

Historic atmosphere in an industrial complex that is now a luxury hotel. Friendly staff, great location downtown next to the harbour, and a great room. Worth the stay. Walking around the immediate area is a pleasure, between busy Water Street and the harbour. We will visit again.

This hotel is converted from an industrial building and retains certain features from its previous use. Ideal location for downtown. Breakfast was included in the price, though choice is more limited than some places I stayed on this trip. The room was spacious, clean and very well presented - I just wish I had had more than one night there...
