Agree needs some TLC but the room was clean and comfortable and the stunning view overlooking the bay more than made up for it! Really enjoyed relaxing on our decking at happy hour and admiring this wonderful spot. Yes, it really is all about "location location location".and would definitely stay here again.

The people that post negative views regarding this site need to stay with the big chains. Real people will recognise that what they are getting for very little money is a great view over the harbour and the chance to meet the penguins as they come out of the sea at dusk. The place is a motel in the classic... More

What a peaceful place and right on the sea front. My room was good sized and very clean. OK perhaps it does need an update, but that did not spoil my stay. I booked a courtyard room, but still had a partial view of the beautiful bay. Breakfast is not included, but the cafe is in the ocurtyard and also... More

The beds and towels were fine and the bathroom had 1 guest soap. Great view from the rooms looking onto the... More

It lies in a beautiful setting with extraordinary views of beaches & Diamond Island. It needs to be renovated. It is easy to see that it would have been a spectacular place to stay at 20 years ago. Average ammenities and the bed provided was so comfortable.

We stayed here one night, and I agree with most other comments that it is in a great spot but in need of a tidy up, driving past shipping containers to get to reception, we wondered if we were in the right place. We stayed in the older units, the paint was flaking off the door and rotten boards in... More

We did not stay - it was the biggest disappointment - tired, neglected, rooms and grounds were once superb it is such a mess the once entertainment deck is neglected, the main dining room now houses a cheap shop called "Dogs Breakfast" that describes the whole place. The owner was in the shop she did not even speak to us!... More

Sure its got a great view but the passage rooma are (according to one of the rarely seen staff) 1 star- I would not stay in the room - it was dirtily, louvre windows jammed shut with dirt, no TV. I upgraded to a reasonable room with the deck and that room was good enough. Despite 1 email and 6... More

This our accommodation of choice in Bicheno, if you don't mind a clean place that's a bit dated at very reasonable rates, with squillon dollar views, helpful staff, then this is the place for you. There has been a bit of a tidy up since our last visit and it's a work in progress. It's also one of the few... More
