This is a luxury hotel, we stayed an extra night because of the view and the most friendly and hospitalable owners.I highly recommend this to all. The views are spectacular and the beaces are pristine. Took some fantastic photos and even saw some penguins.

Overall a disappointing visit. On the plus side, this place is a wonderful location. An expansive property situated right on the beach. At 9pm we were able to watch the ferry penguins come in to find their home for the night, so cute. But... I'd like to give people the benefit of the doubt and really say they do their... More

First I went into reception to pick up the key, wasn't told where the room was, worked it out, we had a nice looking double story unit overlooking the beach area at the end. Best position but that was it. Cost me a fortune to stay here in the first week of January and I was ripped off. It's not... More

From the moment we arrived, it got weird. Firstly some unfortunate creature had recently expired in the bushes by the reception door, adding a certain odour to the ambiance. Our room was delightfully dirty, we counted no less than 7 spiders in residence and the toilet seat was liberally coated with urine. Moldy shower and stained sheet were also options... More

The location of this place is great and as a tourist you cannot imagine anything better. We stayed in a cottage which was at the end of the row, right on the beach with clear views of diamond island and beaches. Also, watched penguins at night and saw their burrows in the day on island. Beaches and coloured rocks were... More

A Christmas present from my parter, arriving at the front of the building and looking out over Diamond island, I was excited for what our weekend was to bring. Arrived around 1:30 to be told check in was at 2pm. We went for a walk and came back and checked in, only to find our room was still being cleaned... More

The location of the "resort" is brilliant - but that is it! We turned up at 1.30 (granted a little early) to find a note stating reception does not open until 2pm which is when check-in starts. So we came back just after 2pm - got to our room to find that it was filthy. The room had not been... More

The Diamond Island Resort is on the beach on the outskirts of Bicheno on Tasmaina's each coast, and right next to the penguin rookeries. So the location has a lot going for it in terms of narural beauty and the opportunity to see some penguins waddling by in the evening. However the hotel really needs an upgrade. Airconditioners in many... More

Loved it. Accommodation was over average. Best bit about the stay was the beach and the Penguins. The beach was magnificent for swimming even in the freezing weather. Penguin spotting was just amazing as well. Just a great stay!!! It was topped off with the great breakfast

Well what can I say, the location is fantastic but the place and management are a disgrace. Rooms very run down holes in the carpet, dirty cutlery and upon entering the bedroom for the first time somebody's used drink bottle. They promote the penguin tour, but in actual fact is just a viewing platform which a few penguins walk by.... More
