“A Special place for a Special Event”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

We chose Windows on Bicheno for a special anniversary, and we were thrilled with our choice. Windows is the ultimate B&B, the bedroom was huge with luxurios quality linen and fixtures, plus a wonderful balcony overlooking the ocean, and a nature reserve beside. Our hostess, Doria was also the ultimate proprietor - knowledgeable about the area and helpful with her suggestions. However, the breakfasts were the highlight - memorable Eggs Bicheno and Bicheno Bliss Bombs were 5 star delicious!
Make this establishment a detour from anywhere in Tasmania - it is worth the trip.

My wife and I stayed at Windows on Bicheno for 2 nights between Christmas and New Year, 2011. The accommodation is beautifully presented, and the host, Doria Loigom, has thought of every detail. There are only two deluxe rooms, each with its own balcony and elevated sea view looking over Bicheno and the coast beyond (see photo). The beds are extremely comfortable, the bathrooms spacious and immaculate. We enjoyed the communal area, which is shared by both rooms, and where complimentary tea and coffee is available. The accommodation is very central and we were able to walk to all the main attractions and restaurants, yet it is away from other housing and accommodation, and so is particularly quiet.

Doria is extremely friendly and helpful, and really could not do enough for us. She also is a dab hand in the kitchen and cooked a beautiful breakfast each morning, going out of her way to accommodate our tastes.

If you are looking for refined, luxury accommodation with a personal touch in beautiful, secluded Bicheno then Windows on Bicheno is definitely for you. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Both rooms are beautiful, so nobody misses out!

Windows on Bicheno was the highlight of our accommodation in Tasmania by far. Doria is an outstanding hostess with an ever ready smile, good advice and knowledge of the local area. We can't decide which was the best bit...the super comfortable bed or Doria's amazing cooking using local produce. Her specialities of 'Eggs Bicheno' and 'Bicheno Bliss Bombs' are both so delicious! The rooms are luxuriously appointed and well set out, being spacious and stylishly decorated with artwork of the area and amazing views up the coast. We highly recommend this B&B, we will definitely be back and look forward to being spoilt in such a wonderful way. Thanks Doria, your special little touches really make you a stand out and we are still raving about you to all who will listen.

Doria was a magnificent and attentive hostess. Nothing was too much trouble. She has great knowledge of the local area and was very helpful in arranging our outings. Windows is beautifully appointed with an amazing view of the sea from all rooms. Breakfast was delightful. We are very much looking forward to our next visit.

Windows on Bicheno is an absolutely beautiful B & B. Brand new and beautifully decorated, you don't get much better than this, in fact we extended our stay because we didn't want to leave! The room was incredibly spacious and comfortable and the common area was lovely. We were fortunate enough to have it all to ourselves and enjoyed vinos on the balcony overlooking Bicheno and the sea, watching the sunset each afternoon while the wallabies jumped around in front of the house! Doria is a wonderful hostess, her breakfasts were delicious and her Bliss bombs are incredible! Thank you for making our trip to Tassie so memorable.

This is the first real 5 star B&B I've come across in Tasmania and I'm sure there is nothing at can compare on the east coast. Windows on Bicheno faces due north looking across town and rightnacross the water to the coast and hills in the distance. Each of the two luxurious rooms have a private balcony, the suite has customary made furniture, well thought out luxury bathroom with a huge shower for two and a great spa bath. It's so new and crystal, sparkling clean. All creature comforts and the owner, Doria, befriends and welcomes her guests without being at all intrusive. Fresh homemade bread appears in the morning and the range of gourmet breakfasts just puts you into relaxation mode!

All the produce is local and even the Tassie wines on offer are competivelly priced and always available from the cellar. Nothing is too much hassle for Doria to ensure hour stay is everything you wish for in Bicheno.

Room Tip: Take both suites and get the entire top floor

Windows on Bicheno was my last port of call on a 2 week holiday to Tassie and rated absolute top of my B&B experiences. Pure luxury! Doria has exquisite taste which is reflected in the furnishings and appointments in every room. No detail has been left unattended. The pristine white bed linen and amazing pillows afforded me the best night's sleep for ages and I awoke each morning to the uninterrupted sweeping view of the sea and Diamond Island. A beautiful slice of heaven! Doria is relaxed, happy and welcoming which just added to the whole experience. A very special place to stay. Hightly recommended... I'll be back!
