We stayed here one night on our way to Wineglass Bay. Despite the chilly weather, our cottage was cosy and warm. The lovely lady on the desk turned on the heaters while we went for a walk. The creaky floors added to the rustic charm. A great place to stay for a short or long stay.

We are in unit 2 of the new motel section. Sitting on the large deck out the front of our unit enjoying a chardy or three. The rooms are very modern, every thing supplied, even have Quilton toilet paper and a free laundry out the back.LOL. A wonderful bush setting, minutes walk to beach and centre of town. So relaxing, we could live here. We spend more than 60 nights / year on hols, and this would be the most impressive stay we have had in Aus.
Very quiet, relaxing place so close to everything. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed.

Room Tip: If your a couple, book the motel units, Chalets are 1970's and they would be great with kids.

After three weeks of travelling around Tasmania we needed a spot of complete R&R so stopped in Bicheno for our last four days on the island.

Bicheno-by-the-Bay had an excellent price for a fully equipped 'cabin' - complete kitchen, large lounge, king-sized bed, large bathroom and an elevated deck (10 metres in length) with the seaview to die for and even a carport! The staff were excellent - friendly, knowledgable and fun to chat with.

Local facilities were good - the town's butcher sold prime steaks, fresh seafood came from the quay and the wildlife was free - Fairy penguins in the garden each night. Local walks each morning and afternoons on the beach were all we did - lovely town, lovely hotel and lovely staff.

first of all, Bicheno is terrific!
This was a last minute stay, I was in one of their four motel rooms. Very impressed. Large comfy bed, good size tv, dvd hire at reception. Toaster, kettle, cutlery, crockery, and plenty of milk in the fridge!
The motel rooms are in their own little block, with an enormous shared verandah and partitioned areas just outside the rooms so you can be as secluded or as social as you like. Fairy lights are a nice touch.
Shower is fantastic!! Good water pressure and a waterfall esque shower head, perfect to warm up after a swim!!

Walking path along beach is just across the road, pool and tennis courts look good, but didn't get a chance to sample for myself. Lots of things for kids.

Overall, a good choice.

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay in one of the cottages at Bicheno by the Bay. The manager was very helpful and found something that suited our needs - she also gave us a map and helpful information about the local area.
We had such a peaceful 3 days of walking, eating wonderful seafood and reading on our deck amongst the trees. The Bicheno Blow Hole is just a 5 minute walk and you can continue on along pathways and large bolders by the waters edge.
We were on holiday as a couple but a family would also really enjoy the many facilities that Bicheno by the Bay has to offer - tennis court, pool, playground, a lake to canoe on etc..
Thanks again for our fabulous stay
Lyn & Kerry

Room Tip: if you want extra space choose a rustic cottage - if you like new and modern choose one of the new motel rooms by the lake
