We stayed for two nights in Wattlegrove, one of the chalets. Good views on the sea, very close to town centre, to blowhole, to penguins. Nice place for families; there is a heated pool, a canoe lake, a tennis court (rackets for hire), a big open fire place to toast marshmallows, and a playground with a cute mini chalet as a cubby house.

Chalets are all made of wood, very cozy. Ours had one bedroom (double bed, wardrobe, very bright TL-bed lights) and a sofa-bed (not foldabe, so mattress was the sofa) in the living room. Open kitchen with only the necessary supplies. Dark and small bathroom/ laundry. A little balcony on the front with 2 chairs.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here BUT what's up with all the little notes with house rules (all over the place) and the big-rule-book?? That was a little annoying and made us feel unwelcome; we're guests not naughty schoolkids, and we're on a holiday, give us a break! Also the lady at the reception could be friendlier, she was a little moody.
What we missed: a bbq! Many places with self contained cottages offer bbq's (shared or private).

We stayed at one of the renovated rooms next to the canoe lake. Just a 5 minute walk to town and most importantly, Pasini, our favorite Italian restaurant.

You can also walk on the Bicheno trail, the trail head at the Blow Hole is also steps away.

Our front desk reception was also extremely helpful and very very knowledgeable. This was our base between Bicheno, Freycinet, Coles Bay - just a 30 min easy drive.

Room Tip: Take one of the renovated rooms - it's wonderful.

We stayed here for 1 night and could have happily stayed much longer. Four very new rooms all beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean with quality furniture/linen etc throughout. Beautiful large bathroom with large shower/shower rose. The four rooms share adjoining walls, the verandas overlook lovely small man made pond. Surrounded by gum trees, very peaceful and tranquil setting. 5 - 10 min walk to the main street, IGA supermarket a few eateries and a pub available for meals. Within walking distance of the beach/walks. Hosts were friendly and helpful, a perfect place to relax and enjoy the peaceful setting.

Quirky Bungalow opposite the Blow Hole. Great Views from Balcony overlooking ocean. Really quiet especially at night with a million stars to see in sky. 200m to shops. Could have had a bigger telly as our laptop screen is bigger and it could have BBQ facilities but that wasn't too bad as we went down to the foreshore to have a BBQ. Comfy Beds and a great atmosphere. Great for couples or families as it has tennis courts, kids playground and a canoe lake. Would definitely stay here again but for longer. We Paid $130 Per night and it was only 30 minutes from Freycinet National Park. Plenty of native Wildlife at Night including Wallabies, Wombats, Penguins, and Bird life.

Room Tip: One Bedroom fully self contained Bungalow. Ocean View we stayed in Radiata has best view on Property

to all those looking at Bichenobythebay
absolutely brilliant, we had a bungalow and it was just perfect, very clean, all the comforts you need for a wonderful holiday, and to wake in the morning and see the waves crashing against the rocks, was just something else, cannot recommend it highly enough, wouldn't hesitate on going back for a longer stay, good rates, and lots to do
so thanks to Vicki and all that make a perfection getaway
all the best and thanks

Room Tip: we had room overlooking the beach, prefect
