We stayed one night in a beautifully renovated and clean room. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff who went out of their way to assist me to recover items I left in the room. Very impressed and will stay again, thank you very much!

Very comfotable and affordable. Great spot to stop for a night after coming across on the ferry and taking a day trip up to Stanley before heading south. Delicious meals and very generous portions. Never been let down yet by a Best Western and lived up to expectations. Would stay at Murchison Lodge Motor Inn again if travelling to Tazzy.

We stayed for one night at this older style motel. The room we were given was one of the newly renovated rooms. The décor was lovely and the owners did a great job modernising the décor. It is located opposite a river inlet but on a main road close to Somerset shops and Burnie which you would need to drive...

This motel is close to the main hwy., 5 mins from Burnie. A lovely quiet relaxed setting. It is an older style motel, but very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant has a good ambiance and good food. I would definitely stay there again.

One of the few motels we stayed at which had breakfast included. It's just outside Burnie (5 mins) and is right on the beach. The rocking chair in the room was a nice touch and the bed very comfortable. Overall everything was clean and tidy and priced accordingly. The motel is just across the road from a small inlet which...

This was our first night of our driving holiday in Tasmania. It had everything we needed and was very reasonably priced. We received a nice, friendly greeting and it wasn't too far from Burnie and places to eat. It was great value budget accommodation.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and the service and friendliness of the reception staff was outstanding. Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean.
