The resort is beside the sea with an island connected to it. You could actually walk to the island to enjoy the sea breeze. The rooms were clean, tastefully renovated with beautiful art decor and a 50 inch flat tv ! The bed was king size with a heater. They also provided complementary breakfast with hearty cereal, bread, fruits and... More

This review came one year late but would be great for people to know what they are to expect. Room was old and only fairly clean, especially the bathroom was really of OLD-STYLE. Found dust and stain on mirror and windows. The penguin watching was really disappointing as they basically walk inside th grass and only a few walk up... More

Hubby & I had a great time staying here. We walked over to diamond island and went fishing, explored it and even saw some penguins! The rooms were neat & very clean. The bed was comfortable and they had a huge TV in the room too! We will definitely be coming back with our kids next time :)

Even before my trip coming Dec, I am already having terrible experience: I booked this hotel through Booking.com (2 rooms for 2 nights in Dec.). They double charged us. Over a month now and we are still waiting for the refund. They actually charged the credit card already (2 months before the trip), unlike many other hotels around the world.... More

To start with something good, this hotel does occupy a nice piece of the Bicheno coast that offers absolutely beautiful environment: tranquil beach with sand as soft and white as sugar, nests of little penguins so you are supposed to see them at your doorsteps, magnificent starry sky on a clear day, sun rise over sea and green lawn just...

Very disappointing, at nearly $300 per night, the "2 bedroom" apartment that we stayed in would've been worth more around $200. We upgraded from 1 bedroom to gain more privacy when traveling with children and it wasn't worth the extra money. The "resort" had no facilities that you would expect from a resort. The games room was being used as... More

I'd recommend this spot million dollar view from your room the beach 50 meters away. I'd have to state the Beach has to be seen to be believed. Super friendly hosts absolute magic. Stop hear you won't regret it. This is certainly a piece of paradise

Bad first impressions. Not even a smile at reception and it all went down hill from there. We entered the room to find it run down and unclean. Broken lampshades, no valance on the bed, dings all over the walls and the bathroom clearly hadn't been cleaned since the previous tenants. Eating at the restaurant was not an option even... More

We chose this place as they advertise that a "guided Penguin tour" is included. We actually drove out of our way to Bicheno especially to give our son this experience and the booking was made through a travel agent in Queensland. We were all none the wiser about what "guided" tour meant obviously. So this is what we got. Young... More

the resort is tired and worn out looking. Needs a coat of paint and some tidying up. you can tell that they are trying, but they are almost trying too hard - there is a games room, there is a DVD room, a fireplace/living room, a half done up playground outside - would be much better if they stopped casting...
