Beautiful and comforting
I visit the Murray Premises any time I would like to stay in a hotel in St.John's NL. This historic hotel is absolutely beautiful and always a comfortable experience. I have stayed in 4 or 5 different rooms and none of them have been disappointing. The exposed brick and wooden posts give a old homey vibe. All of the rooms have featured a fireplace whether it is built in or added on. They have all also featured a bathtub or jacuzzi tub!
