We stayed in the stretch of rooms facing the pond, and was pleasantly surprised to find that the rooms looked really new and beautiful! Comfortable beds with electric heated bed covers to battle the winter chill, walking distance to the Bicheno Blowhole and coastal walk, as well as located near the town centre! Only complaint was that our rooms were... More

We loved our stay at the Bicheno by the bay. We were greeted warmly and sent to our cabin. We were unaware that it was two separate rooms which was very nice. We cooked dinner in since on our Tazzy trip, we had stayed only at hotels so far so that was nice. We weren't here for very long, but... More

Stayed in a cabin on my own - all that was needed was there, but cabin looked a little tired, the TV did not work (I don't need tV, but if it's there you sort of expect it to work). Pleasant stay, but rather pricey for what it is (especially for the solo traveller).

We arrived after a very long drive and went straight to reception to pay our balance for the accomodation. When we entered our chalet, we found the fascilities reasonable but there was a terrible smell in the room. We also soon discovered that there was no bed linen for our 3 year old child whom was supposed to be sleeping... More

Stayed a night with my wife and 2 year old in 2 bedroom "Jasmine" cabin. Comfortable. Warm. Very clean. Everything we needed. A bit noisy under foot (middle of night toilet trips cause a LOT of creaking). We arrived at dusk and there were penguins and wallabies on the road out the front...surprisingly no warning signs to watch out for... More

We spent 2 nights there, plenty of rooms, very organised, and a beautiful view. However, altough it was possible a late check-out, they did not let us stay longer at the last day. I recommed the "Bichenos Blowhole" very neae...... must see it!

We have stayed here for two nights and we truly love it. Each morning we wake up to the spectacular view of the bay. Very quiet and relaxing. The owner is very nice and gave us advice on how to get around the town and she kindly print our boarding pass too. The bungalow is clean and spacious, big TV... More
