Bicheno seemed to have been entirely booked out, so we found ourselves trawling the streets of this lovely town for somewhere to spend the night. Finally, we managed to secure The Stables, one of the three self contained cottages comprising the Bicheno Gaol Cottages. Magically, a rabbit ran across the garden seemingly to greet us. Our timber cottage was tucked... More

Stayed one night, pity wished it was not more. Our Canadian friend went from room to room taking photos all the time saying Omg. Continental breakfast was an added bonas. Treat yourself and stay there. It is well restored and decorated keeping a lot of the original features. We loved it.

The lady was very rude and when we informed her that the cottage was lovely although 90% of the butters/spreads were about a year... More

Stayed three nights over Christmas. Cottage in need of paint, and although the bedding was fresh and we had clean towels, the bathroom had not been cleaned. The cottage was dusty and the crockery looked as though it had been passed through cold water. Greasy plates. My memory of quoted price differed from what we were charged. Not sure who... More

These cottages are managed by Silver Sands Motel where you need to obtain the key. Note this motel doesn't have disabled access to reception but the staff were friendly. At the cottages, stayed in the the Old Schoolhouse. Ramp to front door and Queen bed on ground floor. Two singles beds are on the mezannine floor. Disabled bathroom is well... More
