We stayed for one night in the single bedroom Penguin Nook. It was clean, spacious and comfortable, except for the bed which was very hard. The location is excellent, just a short stroll through the back yard and over the rocks to the ocean. Penguins were viewed in the yard at night. Quite exciting for us as we had never seen live penguins before. The night was spoiled by the thin wall between us and the adjoining Cod Rock Terrace. The occupants were only talking and laughing at low volume until well after midnight, but it was all quite audible in our room. Our matress was so hard as to offer no lumbar support and punished my shoulders when I lay on my side.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Two fully self-contained apartments, Cod Rock Terrace - 2 story, 3 bedrooms sleeps up to 5 and Penguin Nook - 1 bedroom (queen and a single). Right on the waterfront on Cod Rock Point in the East Coast township of Bicheno. Penguins frequent the grounds around the apartments most of the year, and we front onto a 3 klm foreshore walk that goes around town to our blowhole. Both apartments have views over Waub's Bay and Cod Rock Terrace and views overlooking Diamond Island. Set in landscaped gardens with native gums that attract many bird species. All only 500 m or so from local shops and restaurants and only one half hour drive from the world-renowned Freycinet National Park/Wineglass Bay. A great place for at least a two night stopover. ... more less
