The accommodation was well appointed with good quality furnishings. However I really dislike the many notices in the room .... rules and regulations do not make for a relaxing environment.

Burnie was the last stop of my work trip in Tassie and I’m very glad that I found this place. Nice view, Comfortable bed nice pillows good quality towels...It’s like a home away from home- you’ve got everything you need here, even Netflix! There are a few places to eat just a short stroll away. I went to the pizza and tapas bar and had seafood chowder there, was really nice. Would be a really great option for family travelling together too .

I assumed that this property was divided into units each with individual access. It’s actually a house (entering into the lounge and kitchen) but each wing is lockable so it’s fine, Just not what I expected. Very clean, very nice. Would happily stay again
