We booked the BW in Burnie only to find it is in the next small town of Somerset. However, it is a motel but OK for a good night sleep, reasonably priced for our trip around Tasmania. Very friendly staff and a beautifully dressed lady on reception. The jetty restaurant attached to the hotel is excellent. Yes would stay there... More

I stayed 2 nights at the Best Western Murchison Lodge Motor Inn, Burnie, Tasmania, while on a business trip. The hotel is in a great location - quiet surroundings & outside but not too far from Burnie town centre. It is just 100-mts away from the waterfront. Had 2 dinners & was very satisfied with the meals though the menu... More

Murchison Lodge made us welcome and gave us accessible ground floor rooms. Very knowledgeable about interesting places to visit. The restaurant had a good variety of meals and the host has a great sense of humour.

Murchison Lodge took us in when our pre-booked room at Ocean view motel was double booked. The room was comfortable, quiet and dark at night. Showers were hot and very pleasant. Complete with heater and fan it was a great nights sleep. To top it off they have a restaurant on site and the dinner was very tasty although if... More

My Dad & I stayed 2 nights at the Best Western Murchison Lodge. We were only intending on staying one night, but I'm glad we extended it out to two. We had twin single beds. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy, the beds were comfortable. Extra pillows in the wardrobe. A kettle, bar fridge & toaster provided. The... More

Immaculately clean, well appointed and well located. I really enjoyed my stay here. The restaurant is also a plus. I will certainly stay here again on future trips. The hosts are friendly as are the restaurant staff.

2nd visit here, for business. The owners are very friendly helpful people. The rooms are nicely appointed and quiet. Yes, it does have a '70's look, but so what. I had a great night's sleep and the rooms are clean and made up each day. I will stay here again next time in Tassie for work. Free wifi, but it... More

Arrived in Burnie on a very wet afternoon, checked in and hoped we weren't in an upstairs room because that meant carrying the luggage up in the rain. We were but in hindsight it was the better option as we did not have people moving around in rooms above our head. The lady at reception was very pleasant and could... More
