Despite the steep drive up the slope this place is really worth it! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the views were spectacular. We had a problem with some tickets for the Tasmanian Devil experience and the very helpful and friendly owners called up and sorted it out for us. Would certainly stay here again.

Unfortunate double booking not their fault and made up for it with a nice breakfast to make up for the smaller room. Decent people no doubt about that. But not only was it small it was a little ridiculous even the shower was almost hard to fit in so don't try if you are over 90kg and under 175cm or... More

Best description of this place would be a one bedroom self catering unit. Although we only stayed for one night, it would be great for an extended visit. Very comfortable double bed and a good shower room with washing machine if needed. The decor is a little dated however this is reflected in the excellent value for money tariff. There... More

We stayed in Unit 3 for 2 nights, and were impressed with the size of the unit, with separate bathroom and laundry. There may be more modern places to stay in Bicheno, but none with a better view, and stunning in dawn light. Kitchen facilities fair, showing some wear and tear, but good enough to cook up a feed of... More

Views from this place are unbelievable: we had the 2 bedroom unit and sitting on the deck enjoying a cup of tea and a wine overlooking the Bay was bliss: we watched whales in the bay and walked down to the private and secluded beach to view penguins: the place was relaxing and we enjoyed our two days here: will...

Large clean well appointed units, large bathroom with laundry facilities in the unit. Separate toilet. Very comfortable beds and Views to die for. Conveniently located close to the amazing Freycinet Coast. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Awesome place, very comfortable and clean, will certainly stay again if coming back through Bicheno at any stage. Very quiet and peaceful, town is quiet also but the burgers from the local take-away were more than sufficient for dinner, should've stayed longer than just the one night. Pics are the view from our unit.

Absolutely loved this B&B. Clean and warm rooms, yummy home cooked breakfast and welcoming staff. My partner and i stayed here. Could have just sat and looked at the view all week. Nice and close to the township but far away enough to be private.
