Fantastic location, cute houses, comprehensive facilities, and the nicest estate managers I've had in a while! They were informed that I was staying over for my 21st birthday and made me a cake! The house was also lighted and pre-heated when we went in, which made the experience especially welcoming.

Had a pleasant weekend away at Bicheno by the Bay. This secluded bush setting with cabins and Motel style accommodation is only a short walk from the centre of town, the fishing co op in the "Gulsh", an easy climb lookout over the bay and ocean views from many of the cabins. At night you can wander 50 metres down... More

Travelled to Tasmania early July and stayed 2 nights. Used this as a base for Freycinet NP. Had a 2 bedroom cottage overlooking the coastline. These cottages had everything including a washing machine in the cottage which came in handy. The managers were very helpful when checking in- gave out advice of what to do, where to eat. Was an...

I stayed here recently with my husband and 2 young boys. We had a beautiful 2brm cabin (King Billys) overlooking the ocean. Beds were great with much needed electric blankets for winter, and plenty of blankets and pillows. General room heating could have been a bit more efficient, but it was sufficient for our short time here. Staff were wonderful... More

Unexpectedly, I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and self containment of Bicheno by the Bay. A nice little playground, a canoe pond with ducks kept the young ones happy. The close proximity of the supermarket, bakery, blowhole and lookout made it better.

I led a group tour of 6 families, 30 people including 16 kids under 10years old (I'm nuts I hear you say!), right around Tasmania. The accommodation was second to none, one of the best on the whole trip. It was very clean, quiet, and the cottages had everything we needed. Bicheno is such a beautiful place and explore. The...

Stayed in a 2 bedroom cottage for four nights with my family. The resort is centrally located in Bicheno five minutes walk from the shops and five minutes walk from the shoreline. The cottage was well laid out and had balcony facing the sea. The sea view was somewhat spoiled by weedy looking pine trees and gum trees which are... More

This is the hotel we stayed in Bicheno during our 5 days' trip in Tasmania. The hotel locates on a ramp off the main road, so it is quite peaceful. The cottage we stayed was lovely, clean and tidy. The lady owner was friendly and warm-hearted, guiding us the way we wanna visit. It shall be my choice if I... More

We stayed in self-contained cabins here which were lovely and ideal for families as they had full cooking facilities and everything was provided and plenty of kids play areas and activities. There was a good homely feel and we felt welcomed as part of a family - we loved the signs saying that you could take novels to finish as... More
