Apartments Downtown, serviced apartments in Burnie

As the owner of Apartments Downtown, serviced apartments in Burnie, I have more than a fair idea of what to look for when booking accommodation the area. Continue reading as I offer my essential guide to booking accommodation in Burnie.

1. Location – Is it centrally located?

When booking accommodation in Burnie, the first thing to consider is whether it is centrally located. To get the most out of your experience, you’ll want to ensure that the accommodation you choose is located close to all major attractions such as Makers’ Workshop, Burnie Regional Museum, Burnie Regional Art Gallery and the Art Deco Trail. Thankfully, Apartments Downtown could not be better positioned. Should you choose to stay at our serviced apartments, you will be located right on the Art Deco Trail itself and you’ll be within a short walking distance from the other destinations that I have mentioned.

2. Price – Does it meet your budget?

Most tourists look for budget friendly accommodation in Burnie. On an average, visitors to Tasmania spend $189 per night, or $1,645 per visitor. This is much higher than the cost of staying in our beloved Art Deco apartments.  Apartments Downtown will set you back as little as $95 per night, leaving you plenty in the piggy bank to explore our local culture and attractions. No wonder guests simply love booking accommodation here at Apartments Downtown.

3. Accommodation – What type of accommodation are you after?

Understand that Burnie hotels offer different facilities compared to serviced apartments and you should consider the type of accommodation you need before making a booking. Hotels may offer more amenities but they are more expensive and smaller than serviced apartments. On the other hand, serviced apartments have fewer amenities than hotels but they offer larger accommodation at much more affordable rates. With Burnie having a lot to offer tourists, I find that our guests in particular prefer to get out and explore the region rather than staying in and utilising our facilities – I guess this is why they choose our serviced apartments over hotels.

4. Size – Will it fit all in?

If you’re travelling to Burnie with your family or you’re a group of friends, you must consider the size of your accommodation. There’s nothing worse than making a booking at a hotel room, only to find out that the room isn’t big enough to accommodate all of you. Booking multiple hotel rooms can prove to be heavy on your wallet as well. As an alternative to hotels, you should consider holiday apartments as your accommodation in Burnie. Here, at Apartments Downtown Burnie, we offer spacious 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments to accommodate groups of all sizes, that too at prices far cheaper than hotels.


Before you jump in and book accommodation in Burnie, you must first consider your personal requirements. Make sure that your accommodation is centrally located so that you don’t have to spend too much time commuting on your holiday. Also, consider you budget and choose accommodation accordingly. While you can certainly choose a hotel, which that is loaded with facilities, serviced apartments offer you much more space and much better value for your money, so consider what you would prefer. Finally, look at the size of the group you will be travelling with and book accommodation according.

Here, at Apartments Downtown, we score really well on all these grounds. Not only are we centrally located in Burnie, but our serviced apartments are incredibly cost effective as well.
