True surprise package- beautiful location and rolling grounds down to the beach. Viewing platform for nightly penguin march- the true stars of the show! also the management are eco-sensitive and even growing further native garden areas for the penguins to roost at night. Good big rooms with all you need in the kitchen, lovely aspect from the main restaurant. we... More

Perhaps not quite there yet, but this "resort" is a diamond in the rough. The owners are working tirelessly to bring the standard up and their friendliness and enthusiasm is to be admired. The location and outlook are very pretty and being right on the beach, its a beautiful walk along the sand to Diamond Island, with lovely views of... More

A hidden treasure, a diamond in the making. New managers are working hard to give this lovely older place a make-over to bring her up to date and make her a shiney jewel. They were very friendly and helpful and were available whenever we wanted assistance . The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable, in fact the beds were fabulously... More

Very disappointing. The tourist bureau in Hobart recommended this "resort". Hopefully they might investigate the property before referring unsuspecting tourists . very tired and run down. There was no attempt to be accommodating. I was told to ring reception for any info but couldn't find any phone. I was told someone must have "taken it".

A nice surprise. A little bit rough around the edges with the exterior, but the room was just lovely. Great views, super comfortable king bed, very clean bathroom. Service was very personal from the young man at reception. Penguin viewing included in price. Would definitely stay again, and recommend to those visiting this lovely part of the world.

I seldom type reviews but was urged to do so after my recent visit to Bicheno. I booked this hotel months ago as a HK celebrity stayed here before, so I thought this must be one of the best in the area. When the date drew closer I started to look up reviews here and was very shocked by the... More

We had a great night here. It is obvious that the new managers are hard workers who are trying to tidy up and fix up. They were really friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable with loads of space. 2 singles in an upstairs room, our queen in a loft type room and then another single downstairs in... More

Spent 2 nights at Diamond Island Resort and thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this excellent location where the scenery and beach is stunning! My room was well appointed and had the most comfortable bed!! There was even a bathrobe which I usually associate with 5 Star Hotels. Unfortunately it rained one day so was not able to take full advantage... More

Called to try to book a wedding venue and was on the line with a "manager" who was of no help and worst customer service I have ever experienced. Lacking any kind of professionalism and organization. We were looking to hold our special day at Diamond Island and this place will no longer be considered. Such a disappointment this place... More
