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

Bicheno by the Bay is a fantastic location for a family holiday. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff were always lovely and welcoming and very helpful with information about the local area. We would happily recommend your property.

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

I booked a motel room at Bicheno By The Bay. The room was new, clean and modern with nice amenities. The problems I experienced were: Neighbors smoking on their balconies, with the smell filtering through our room. The inability to shut the sliding door without the room getting extremely stuffy Didn't get the room services even though we left the... More

We stayed in one of the Motel Units, which overlook a small lake with Ducks, seagulls and occasional canoeing children. We had read mixed reviews before we booked but we are not normally picky, so gave it a go. What a great place to stay. Well laid out Studio with dual access, large deck out the front, overlooking that lake.... More

My husband and I travelled to Bicheno for our honeymoon and we spent two nights at Bicheno by the Bay. I have read a few reviews about the resort and thought I would make my own decision when we arrived. The weather was dreadful on our first day, but we arrived at our destination to be greeted by the lovely... More

We stayed in a two bedroomed cabin which was comfortable and supplied all that we needed for our three day stay. The large balcony was a bonus with views across the resort and out to the sea through the tree-tops. We were given a warm welcome on our arrival and enjoyed the facilities offered such as the small pool and... More
