This is an excellent motel on the bank of the beautiful Cam river, and close to Somerset beach. I've now stayed there twice, and the rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable. The restaurant serves hearty meals. The motel is central to trips to Circular Head (Stanley, Smithton and the Edge of the World) and the West Coast (Strahan and Queenstown).... More

The motel is older style one but with nice, albeit small, rooms that are clean and well maintained and enough updates not to feel dated. Tariff is quite modest considering the standard of the rooms. Staff and owners are very helpful and friendly.i liked... More

Disgusted in the room - bed was so hard and uncomfortable that we got no sleep (rest my wife needed), the bathroom door had to be left closed due to the smell of sewer permeating... More

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.

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
