I had the pleasure of staying at this motel fot two nights in December 2012. The room was immaculate and a credit to the owners. If you want budget accommodation that is the best in Tasmania coupled with good old fashioned customer service Wintersuns Garden Motel is a must. The cooked breakfast delivered to your room is also excellent value. Wintersuns Garden Motel has raised the benchmark for cleanliness and customer service in Bicheno.

We stayed two nights in one of the new 2-bedrooms self contained unit of the motel.
The motel is really pretty surrended by gardens and flowers and was very quiet.
There is a small swimming pool, but it was a little bit too cold outside to use it and a barbeque outside for common use.
The unit was almost new, very clean and quite large for a self contained unit. It included real two bedrooms plus a sofa bed and it was comfortable. Kitchen was very complete.
Bathroom included a large shower.
There is a heater that heated the room very quickly (but we went in January).
On the northern side of Bicheno, very quiet residential area and 5 minutes walk to the beach.

We stayed for a couple of nights and found the room exactly as presented by Trip Advisor. It was clean, well maintained and comfortable. There was an amazing value breakfast special which we were allowed to share. We didn't have any noise from neighbors although the motel was fully booked. Fresh milk is always a bonus and extra was just there for the asking.

We were advised that the local hotel had a new chef who was getting good reviews and we ate there both nights; lovely, fresh seafood available at great prices so much more appealing than the seafood place across the road.

The owners were exceptionally helpful and even allowed me to use their office computer to print our boarding passes for the trip home.

An excellent motel! On check in we were given fresh milk for tea and coffee and some very helpful advice on the dining options in town. Room was very clean and well maintained, as were the gardens. Very relaxing to just sit in the garden after a day on the road. Great value breakfast, less than $30 for four excellent cooked breakfasts!!
Highly recommend Wintersun Gardens Motel.

The Wintersun Gardens Motel is a great, well cared for place to stay whilst in Bicheno. It is also very reasonably priced. The proprietors were extremely helpful. Bookings for the excellent penguin tour were arranged and helpful advice given as to where to eat. The excellent French restaurant was exactly as described. The Wintersun Gardens are highly recommended.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Wintersun for 2 nights on our visit to the Bay of Fires and Wineglass Bay. Nice clean rooms, and great bathroom/shower. Owners were delightful and very accommodating for a last minute booking over the phone.

The only downside was the noise. We could hear our neighbors through the walls, and we were awoken in the morning by doors slamming. Our neighbors were up early packing up the car, and their screen door would slam shut every time they went in and out of the room. Very disturbing, but I guess Bicheno is not really a place for sleeping in anyway.

We loved our day trip to the Bay of Fires. We also visited the nearby East Coast NatureWorld and were pleasantly surprised. A good place to feed kangaroos and see Tasmanian devils up close.

I'd give this place 5 stars if not for the noise in the morning.
