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

Our spa bedroom (unit 5) was well appointed and had a spacious bathroom. Very clean and comfortable. Our host Ken was attentive and made sure we were happily accommodated. Although the retreat is along Tasman Highway, we had a peaceful night sleep. This is because the retreat is located high on a hill which affords what must be the best... More

Bicheno was our 'rest day' during our Tassie trip. And we couldn't have asked for a better place! Reading other reviews we had booked Unit 1 - which definitely seems to be the best of the other units. The views were to die for. from the bedroom, the living area, the balcony, it was living in a picture perfect postcards.... More

This place has the best views I have ever seen in a holiday place. Restful, homely with plenty of room for 2 although 4 could comfortably fit. Good kitchen. Just needed a heater in the bathroom! Lovely blue wrens hopping about in the morning on the lawn outside. The room allowed warm sun and views that changed with the hour... More

Our experience here was completely different to other Tassie accommodation. This is not a property to be recommended. No ocean view from our studio, only the car park and messy sitting area with a dirty barbeque. The bedroom was tiny - one had to squeeze around the bed to gain access to the far side of the bed. The kitchen,... More

My party of 3 loved everything about the place. There is something very special and charming about it. The unit we stayed in (2) is fully equipped; comfortable and 'cozy'. It felt 'great' from the first moment! The Retreat is close to Bicheno and yet is slightly secluded which adds to its charm... and YES... the ocean and coastal views... More

We were happy to arrive, Ken greeted us warmly and offered us the B&B room (with a spa) A lovely room, with everything we needed and more. The view was magic and the next morning the sunrise over the bay was spectacular and we watched it from the bed (see photo). We went down to the Gulch and the blowhole... More
