Great little place to stay, was clean, modern, freshly painted, bathroom was what we needed and the room was just comfortable. Perfect place to stay that is not expensive and is comfortable, we were there for four nights and enjoyed it. The restaurant 'The Jetty' is fantastic too! Was not expecting it to be such high quality but we enjoyed...

A very pleasant stay for 2 nights while on business. Despite being somewhat dated, this motel shone because of top class customer service, clean & functional room, quiet & convenient location. Having a library of DVDs to loan was a great idea. Staff displayed good local knowledge & appropriately suggested options & ideas for local dining, tourist routes & attractions....

Had a lovely one night stay after coming off the ferry. Room was clean and comfortable AND the staff were super friendly. As we checked out the lady gave us some fantastic local knowledge to help us get the best out of our day.

The friendly and informative greeting at reception by proprietor Cindi Forsyth set the standard for my stay. My room was recently refurbished with everything I needed for an overnight stay. The heater was on and the room was comfortably warm on a cool evening. The furnishings are of good quality , suit the room and are practical while comfortable. The...

Staff at reception were welcoming and friendly, the room had almost everything you could ask for. I found the bedding to be very comfortable. Breakfast was ample and very nice. Only issue (sorry) is no reverse cycle air conditioning which meant the room was very cold. It was a cold winter night but that is what we expect in Tasmania....

Our party of 40 spent two nights at the Lodge and we found it very good. The management were extremely helpful and ensured our stay was enjoyable. Would be quite happy to return on a future trip to Tasmania. Ideal central point for visiting Stanley, Cradle Mountain etc.

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.
