“This one is right out of the box”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We weren't sure about the Ikon mainly because of the odd check in procedure, but boy were we pleasantly surprised. Check in was easy and the staff made you feel right at home from the minute we made contact. The room was huge, beautifully furnished and quite modern. We thought traffic noise might be an issue but it wasn't, seems that Burnyites go to bed quite early in the night. 2 TV's, large bathroom, lounge area and big bed made for a most enjoyable over night stay. Mini bar prices were very reasonable and cereals, yogurt etc. are provided free of charge. The restaurant is not operated by the hotel owners but we would not recommend it as it was noisy and the food was no where near good enough for what was being charged.

Recommend the Ikon hotel very highly.

I am so happy to have stumbled on the Icon. It is modern, with huge rooms that are elegantly decorated. My husband and I love traveling Tasmania, but find that some places are behind the times. The Icon is not one of them. There is super fast Internet that can connect multiple devices. Check in is a breeze and all paperwork is sent via email. The location is great, one block from the ocean. The staff is welcoming. The bath products are all natural. There is a small kitchenette with full size wine glasses for enjoying a bottle picked up at a local winery. Everything us well thought out and worth it!

Big, beautiful and well thought out rooms. Great bathroom products, such a pleasure to have a spa after shooting a wedding, then a great priced mini bar to have a cold beer on the balcony while looking out to sea. Will make this great hotel our base for future stay in the north west!!!

Thank you for your wonderful review.... It is great to read that after work, you could come and wind down, relax and enjoy a beverage. We have priced our minibar for that reason, we believe that guests should WANT to drink, rather than be too scared to touch a thing. We encourage guests to sit on the balconies, or on the couches in the halls, chat, relax and enjoy the hotel. Our guest amenities are all natural products, and we do receive a lot of guest comments for them.
We look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

Stayed for one night on the way to a business function,. Boutique hotel with only 12 rooms. Rooms very large and top shelf furnishings. Small kitchenette with yoghurt and cereals provided for breakfast. We were a bit concerned about the traffic noise as it was very noisy during the evening but all went quiet at about 10pm. The rooms are all upstairs with no lifts so you have to be prepared to carry your luggage up and down

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the back to reduce street noise

Thank you so much for the time you have taken to post such a positive review! We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. We do listen to our guests and implement changes to the hotel where possible. For example, we have replaced all glass in the first floor with 7mm laminate, and put external glass panels on the windows to further reduce noise. We are currently waiting on glaziers for the top floor windows to be treated also.
We would LOVE a lift, we applied for a grants to enable us to include a lift and make improvements to the Ikon Hotel experience. As we are heritage listed and can not put one in the front section, unless it is external! The change of government however has ensured that all grants applied for by operators in the tourist industry in regional Australia were scrapped. We are back to the drawing board on that issue, but we will develop other plans as it is an imperative addition. We hope to welcome you back again soon!

Was in for two nights and this motel is to say the least. Impressive,,, rooms are massive, and clean and comfy, the staff are fantastic, friendly and can never do enough to help you. The views from the room I had was spectacular, looking at the ocean, how good is it :) It is the best accommodation in Burnie, and will continue to use this Hotel until Hell freezes over and I think after that as well :)

I stayed overnight and was impressed with the Ikon.

The rooms are massive... literally HUGE!! Very clean and well equiped.

The only down side was the lack of elevator, which meant lugging my bags up to the top level.

Thank you for the great review. We value your feedback tremendously and implement these where possible. A lift is something we are hoping to install, however being heritage listed means that we cannot simply put one in the centre of the hotel. We also have tenants in the ground floor. So a lift would need to be external. We have been working on this since opening as it is very expensive exercise. Staff are more than willing to assist with luggage, which can be arranged on check in or at the time of booking.
Hope to welcome you back.

We had an overnight stay, the cleanliness of the room was outstanding. The staff member who checked us in was very helpful and accommadating. The only suggestion would be to have more art on the walls as the big rooms kind of need a bit more so they are not to sterile. However, a great stay, and they gave a good recommendation for dinner!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are very proud of our hotel, and take all comments on board. Our Guest services team take great care in their duties and this really shows by your comments! The owner has themed the hotel with vintage posters - these are extremely large, and adorn our hallways. This theme fits with our history but will not fit into our rooms! Thank you, we hope to see you on your next visit to Burnie.
