We had done our research on Ocean View, so were fairly confident of what lay ahead. Easy to find with a signposted entry about 4km out of town proper. We were looking forward to the view, so ate both our breakfast and dinner watching the blue of the ocean. The apartment was nice and clean and well presented-ours was in... More

We stayed at Oceanview for 3 nights . It is true as previous post mentioned the unit has a 'dated 70's feel to it " but that kinda reminded me of my childhood holidays . So I embraced it and thoroughly enjoyed our stay . The wifi is poor but if you walk up to the main house there is... More

The room was very comfortable. The view was amazing and we were very close to the beach. The owners were very friendly and gave us great information about the area. We were about 3 minutes drive from the main town. Highly recommended accomodation!

The views are to die for from the main bedroom and lounge of the upstairs unit. The staff were really helpful and got us gluten and dairy free supplies for breakfast. The unit though is very dated a blast from the 70s. It is a way out of town, but well worth the stay for the views alone.

We went to this retreat with friends from overseas, and the first comment they made about the place was "This is a million dollar view", and we agreed completely. The retreat is situated high on the the hill away from traffic, and has panoramic view of the Bicheno coastline. We stayed in the upstairs unit and it was huge, and... More

We found our room number on the panel outside reception when we arrived. The room had plenty of space for the three of us and the kitchen was well equipped for self catering. Driving up after dark it's best to be careful as there are kangaroos on the grounds. The view is great but when we were there it was... More

Could not fault this B & B. Terrific location, great room, plentiful breakfast (served at your door overlooking the ocean), very nice hosts (especially their dog "Lucky") and the surrounding gardens were beautiful. Just a short drive to the town centre. Worth the money for the view alone. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Bicheno.

We arrived in Bicheno on a soggy and dismal afternoon and were very grateful to find the heater turned on and the room warm and cozy. We had booked one of the two B&B rooms, which are part of the main house facing the bay. Since we arrived on a rainy day, we couldn't see much of the bay at... More

We had the best time at this special place. To wake up and see the whole bay and have a coffee in this peaceful garden is one of my best memories from tasmania! We had everything we needed in our guestroom/flat and more :-) Thanks for that!

We stayed in the spa room. We very much enjoyed the spa bath. The room and bathroom were clean and cozy. The breakfasts were lovely and enthusiastically enjoyed. It was quite enjoyable to wake up and see the ocean just out in front of us, it was just beautiful. We would definitely stay here again.
