Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you are staying for one or two nights then this hotel is a good option. The rooms are large, clean and the bed is was very comfortable. It is basic, some of the rooms have been updated, some have not. I had a ‘budget’ room but it was well equipped. Air conditioning is mainly through the door frame. The hotel is in a quiet area and you can walk down by the river or to the beach in a few minutes. On the downside, the restaurant was closed indefinitely. There was a loud rooster nearby that fired up at 4.30am every day as an early alarm clock. There were a lot of contractors staying so the Ute’s firing up and idling at 6am served as the second alarm call! If I was passing through on a shorter stay I would stop again but for anything longer I would try elsewhere.

Spacious room, could be a little warmer in mid-winter. Pleasant and informative service. Well-located only 10 minutes drive from the airport. Comfortable bed, quiet at night, breakfast and evening meal available

We rang front of house at 8.30 the night before looking for accomodation as ours had fallen through. Even though they did not have a four bed room available they did us a deal when I informed them of out circumstances. Thanks so much.

Very friendly reception. Spotlessly clean and well maintained.. Well set up with jug, toaster and microwave. Comfy bed with electric blankets. Walk-in shower with external exhaust. Short walk to the beach. Very good on-site restaurant (The Jetty). Excellent value. Recommend.

The manager was short staffed on the day we were there. He impressed us by turning up in all capacities, from waiting at table in the restaurant to serving breakfast in the morning to managing the counter for arrivals and departures. I was impressed by his commitment to his customers.

A comfortable, friendly, clean, centralised motel. Food is great and the Host, Liam, is wonderful, caring and efficient. A wonderful motel, where we’ll stay at again and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the motel to Family, Friends and Strangers.

Great place with good accommodation for a reasonable rate. Hotel was closer to the main road and did not have to travel far from the town. The staff was very helpful. Very clean and tidy room. I recommend the place for any person who is visiting Burnie for business work to stay in this hotel.

First thing you need to know if not familiar with the area is that the Best Western Burnie aka Murchison Lodge is not in Burnie CBD it's in a smaller town adjacent to Burnie called Somerset it has virtually become another suburb of Burnie. So you won't be in a position to take a short walk to Burnie cinema, the shopping centre or beach front dining, Burnie CBD is a short drive away though. BUT you are in a lovely spot opposite the River Cam, the beach is nearby and the shopping area in is Somerset is great, nice new IGA store, restaurants/takeaways, bakers it's all there and a bicycle shop too, so if you're heading down to the west coast mountain bike trails this is very handy. Booked a standard queen bed room which was bright, tidy and average in size the bathroom was a bit dated but everything fully functional. Our room was on the ground floor, although there were other guests I don't think we had anyone staying above us on the first floor so can't comment on any noise issues. If looking on a map you'll see the motel is set back on a side road of a main though road, don't let this put you off booking, slept very well, no road noise disturbance here. Very nicely presented grounds with a garden area and nicely landscaped areas in front of rooms. We were staying during a bit of a cold spell and the room didn't have an air conditioner for some quick heating but there was an electric panel heater on the wall which we kept on low and it took the edge off the rooms coolness. Restaurant on site 'The Jetty" made dining easy even though there are other options in Somerset (see separate review). Staff met during stay very friendly and helpful.
