A local friend booked me into this boutique property, otherwise I would never have stumbled across it.
It is right in town, and a real gem.
No reception, you enter through a restaurant below and use a courtesy phone to alert staff of your arrival, you are then shown to your giant room with separate sitting area, kitchenette and king bedroom, all tastefully decorated art Deco style, with the biggest mirror you have ever seen in a hotel room.
They supply cereal and yoghurt in the room for breakfast, and there is a nice selection of coffees in jars rather than those evil sachets which is a winner for me.
My only negatives was the noise of the traffic, and that if you have luggage you have to lug it up a couple of flights of stairs,.
They have secure underground parking across the road.
I will stay here on my next visit to Burnie, it has character and style, and is not just another hotel room.

The only things we didnt like was the memory foam bed (we were more used to it the second night) and the shower in our room was in a bath which allowed water to go absolutely everywhere. The shower heads werent the best. Overall it was ok, rooms are so massive but we found we didnt need that much space anyway. It was really clean and staff were extremely helpful.

As mentioned by other reviewers the rooms are spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The king size bed that we had was very comfortable and made of memory foam. The mini bar is excellent, well stocked and reasonably priced. This is a really classy hotel and is situated right in the CBD. Artwork on corridor walls is awesome, we would certainly stay here again.

We had a corner room on the first floor overlooking the street.
Lovely old building, large rooms with high ceilings. Very comfortable, free Wi-Fi, basic cold breakfast (packets of cereal) and a great location. The room was quiet except for a little noise coming up from the restaurant below in the evening.

The family and I stayed here whilst we were checking out schools in Bernie for one night. We really enjoyed the space and the furnishings. The art work on the walls in the corridors was great to look at too

Room Tip: The restaurant down stairs is a separate business and we didn't think much of it. We sat down at...

Having been to Burnie on previous client visits, I choose to stay in town this trip. The Ikon is in a very central location within the town and close to most food outlets. It also had a large restaurant downstairs that seemed busy for a Wednesday night. I didn't eat there this trip, but may on next visit.
The rooms were very large and newly decorated. The bed was very comfortable and large. The room has no A/C but a fan was in the room.
The location does mean however that early morning street noise of businesses opening is something to consider.
The stay was pleasant and enjoyable and I will return again next trip.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top level means a lot of stairs beware if you have a lot of bags. No lift due to possib...

The staff were most polite and helpful.
The room was large - modern minimalist - very well appointed, comfortable and more than adequate. Enormous en suite. Continental breakfast.
Outside the apartment we had access to a balcony overlooking the main street.
There are two places to park your car - in a building over the road or the carpark of the bottle shop next door (owned by the the Ikon).
