We made a spontaneous decision to head over to Bicheno for the weekend and found this spot on Wotif and the reviews were great. No wonder, the view was nothing short of breathtaking and the unit itself was lovely and spacious, clean and very comfortable. Just out of town, the retreat was so peaceful and if you head down the... More

An ideal spot that feels secluded but has easy access to town and a short walk to the beach. Lots to do in the area. Unit 4 was clean and lovely, small but uncrowded, with everything 2 people could need. We cooked up yummy fresh seafood from town in our kitchenette. Price was more than fair and the hosts were...

We just loved being here. End of a couple of weeks driving around Tasmania, and the perfect place to unwind. Outstanding views and easy walk to beach. Good central location for day trips north, south and west. We had email instructions on what to do if 'reception' was unattended and settled ourselves in. Happily sat for hours on our veranda...

This place is a real gem and we were really lucky to have found this lovely retreat. High above the main street you have a magnificent view of the coastline and can fall asleep to the pounding of the waves on the beach. We had the self-contained two bedroom unit no. 1 which was very generous in space and offers... More

My sister & I stayed here in Unit 2 for the Australia Day long weekend. Very comfortable, great location, very peaceful & amazing views. Sarah, the proprietor mentioned they had only taken over the retreat 10 days ago. She made us feel very comfortable & welcomed. Will stay at again 😌

Our family stayed for 3 nights in Uinit 2. The view of the coast was spectacular & the beds very extremely comfortable. The bathroom needed renovating & was a bit grotty in & above the shower but overall the unit was clean. The biggest inconvenience was having the main bedroom with the queen sized bed in the same room as... More

We stayed 2 nights at this Ocean View Retreat at Unit One, with 2 bedrooms n a large balcony, with fantastic views of the bay n the ocean. One of these rooms also had this same magnificent scenic view. The views alone made our stay worthwhile. However, the furnishings were rather dated and tired, n the lightings could have been...

We stayed two nights and were not disappointed with the facilities provided in our two rooms apartment. Heaters were in the rooms and living hall. Rooms and living room were spacious and comes with a balcony that gave you splendid 180 degree ocean view. Could do both sunrise viewing and beautiful night sky star gazing from the balcony. At night... More

Unfortunately we did not enjoy this place as much as the other did. Rather we found it unbearable. The room is tiny and uncomfortable - single occupancy at most, so the two of us couldn't move. The bed is too small as well. They pride themselves on a 'jacuzzi bath'. Maybe it would have been a novelty 20 years ago..... More

Kenlyall, Owner at Bicheno's Ocean View Retreat, responded to this review

As the owner, manager and worker at Bicheno's Ocean View Retreat, I am extremely upset and concerned that you found our accommodation so unacceptable in Dec 2013. The B+B Spa unit is basically half bedroom and half bathroom. The bed is a standard Queen size bed and whilst not huge is large enough for most guests. We certainly don't 'pride'... More
