Stayed one night, not a great selection of accommodation in Burnie. The rooms are quite old and could do with a little touch up. Fine if you are happy to have a clean room with a bed. They did have the heater on prior to our arrival which was fantastic. Free paper delivered in the morning.

This was my second visit to Murchison Lodge in a year and my original assessment that it's a great place to stay still stands. It is not luxurious but is clean, quiet and comfortable and is really good value. As well, the staff is welcoming and friendly and that wins me over every where I go.

Very clean and tidy older style accommodation. It is a little dated but in great condition and well looked after. Friendly and helpful staff. A great location just outside of Burnie, very quiet with no trains and wharf noise like locations in the city. We had 3 meals in the restaurant and they were all high quality at reasonable prices....

We stayed at this motel for two nights while visiting the area (Burnie & Stanley). The room was large, clean and comfortable. The hotel restaurant was good. The young woman at reception was friendly and very enthusiastic. No complaints on any counts.

We booked one night and stayed two. Very friendly and helpful manager, nothing was too much trouble for her. The motel is a bit dated, but don't be put off, it is exceptionally clean & comfortable, and there is the most wonderful beach across the road which we had almost to ourselves. When the tide is high the water comes... More

We had been wanting to cook something on the barbie since getting to the island, and our hosts were very helpful in getting a seldom-used BBQ working, loaning us all we needed for cooking and dining, and for washing up after.

Firstly I have to say the staff and how they carry out their business at this place is to perfection. If this rating was on that alone it would be a 5. The check in fantastic and so helpful departure and anything else I needed during the stay was fantastic. They have a restaurant here which is attended by many... More
