Burnie Ocean View Motel and Holiday Caravan Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 27, 2014

Booked at short notice so were happy to get a cabin at a good rate. Much more spacious that we thought and spotless, however, there was an unpleasant smell coming mainly from the kitchen area but was evident right throughout. Don't know if it is an air freshener they use or something else. Staff very pleasant. The other positive was that it was quiet and not on the railway line like many of the other accommodation houses.Overall, excellent value for money

Thank you for your kind review of the accommodation. Our cleaners, 2 of whom have been with the business for over 16 years each, take great pride in their work and I will pass your comments on. Let me set your mind to rest regarding the smell when you were in the motel. Unfortunately the smell was not from the cabin. The whole of the suburb was affected with a sewerage blockage in an outlet on the foreshore. On Sunday the water corporation guys spent hours in the suburb repairing pipes and now, to everyones relief, the air has cleared!! Hope to see you again.

Stayed for three nights in an upstairs Motel room.
The outside is very drab and needs some work. Inside is better, but still quite dated. Bit cramped with the queen bed, single bed and roll away. This was the cheapest accommodation we stayed in and it felt like it.
Shower was excellent however with plenty of hot water. Good location with quick drives to Burnie, Wynyard and further along the Coast.
Given the cost, would probably stay again.

Thank you for your comments. We have recently re-designed one of the rooms similar to the one you stayed in and it is open plan and very modern looking. The response had been very positive, so, next winter we will complete all rooms to the new design. All bathrooms are now new in the block you stayed in. Real value for money.

We stayed overnight in the cabins and the accommodation wasn't very comfortable. The cabin was old and didn't feel clean. It also had a smell about it that wasn't very welcoming at all. The hot water in the shower was the best thing about the cabin as it was a cold night. The rating was only 3 star so I guess I can't expect much more. Next time I will be doing an inspection before checking in.

Room Tip: Inspect before deciding to stay.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you liked the view and of course the pool heated to 28C is always a favourite of our guests. The bed is only 2 years old and we have had only a few comments about the bed, but I suppose that bed comfort is a personal choice. Next trip, we suggest our Park View units, older and softer beds. Thanks again.

Great location, straight opposite the beach. Awesome spot on the beach for sunsets and sunrises. We also enjoyed the town of Burnie. Nice shopping area and excellent Makers Workshop. A good base for looking further along the coast as well. Small undercover pool was great when the sea is too cold to swim in.

I stayed here just one night on business. Check in was friendly, the room was clean, very convenient to all the towns on north west coast. Although easy to find, right on the highway, my room in the middle of the property was quiet. Plenty of off street parking.

Room Tip: If you want a view, ask for the premium waterfront rooms.

I have stayed at this location before so knew it was a good family friendly place for an Easter getaway.
The staff are faultless.
The facilities cater for everyone, from campers to families with well laid out grounds and ammenities.
Will be staying again
