Reviewed December 15, 2012

Arrived in Bicheno around midday & enjoyed lunch in an Italian restaurant & decided to stay in town overnight.Best Western Beachfront looked a likely prospect & at reception was advised there were two rooms available,when I asked to see a room I was somewhat reluctantly given one to the unit at the far end of the complex.Room excellent,but alongside bistro,bar & bottleshop so probably noisy at night.Back at reception when I asked to see other room I was somewhat abruptly asked whether we had used anything in the room! Having travelled widely over many years this is the only time we have had such an insulting reception,we found other accomodation!

We had spent most of the day travelling from Launceston...not even having time to stop t any wineries! We arrived at Natureworld near Bicheno too late to,see the last Devil feeding(3.30) so decided it would be a good idea to break our journey back to Hobart & stay the night in Bicheno. Than Heavens we did! Its a really long tiring drive. It also meant we got back to Natureworld at 9 am, & saw Devils, quolls, wombats etc. The Best Western Beachfront Bicheno was fine...we had a sea front facing room, with a large balcony & a lovely view of the beach. The room was clean, modern with comfy bed & large modern wetroom. We had a good meal in the Bistro next door...basic but good. We didn't have breakfast, but there was a toaster, teabags etc & kettle provided in the room, plus a fridge & fresh milk. There was a good choice of room service breakfast offered at various prices, plus we saw folk having brekkie in the Bistro too.
A good spot to stay if you are travelling back down the East coast. Tassie roads are winding & it takes a lot longer to travel on them than you may think.

Room Tip: Just pay a little extra for a front facing seaview room...unless you want a room by the pool at the...

This is a great choice in Bicheno. Set back off the main road, with a decent pool and children's pool and play area at the back. Just over the road to Waubs Bay beach...beautiful! Also a short walk to the shops and restaurants. Very quiet when we stayed but could be noisy in summer and school holidays. All rooms have a balcony to sit out and rooms are well equipped and there are bbqs on site, as well as the local pub, bottle shop and restaurant. Only problem I found was the beds were a little soft for my liking.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are refurbished with good views of the beach. Family rooms are at the back aroun...

We were really surprised with the rooms of the best western, they were lovely, we had an upstairs room with a balcony overlooking the beach. The room was modern, clean and spacious, staff were friendly and helpful. The onsite tavern was great and food lovely the bugs were yummy. There was a pool and laundry onsite which were useful. Even though on a main road the traffic was not a problem and the location was great as a base to tour the area. Great value for money.

This is a great hotel/motel. Overlooking the beach at Bicheno. Front rooms have balconies for that quiet drink or a read.

The rooms are great with everything for the overnight or longer stay.

Staff are friendly. There is a great restaurant at the co-located hotel.

And Bicheno is one of those hidden jewells of the east coast.

Room Tip: Pay the bit extra for a room overlooking the sea. Don't worry about traffic noise - there isn...

The hotel room was clean and they provided toaster and kettle. The location is less than 5 min walk to the shops which is great for a little stroll to the bakery in the morning to grab breakfast. Would recommend others to stay. Above my expectations for a Best Western

so here we come, first time staying at the best western at bicheno. while planning our trip, was struggling to choose in between the best western or another b&b in bicheno. taking the price and location into considering then booked best western in. werent expecting too much and was a bit unsure at the beginning but - front desk staff was really welcoming and friendly, complimentary breakfast will be provided for three of us, room service provided, room is large enough to have four adults tho there are only three of us. room is clean and you have all the utilises in house, towel/hair dryer/shampoo etc all you need are provided and new and clean. We have the room facing the pool with an outdoor area. The room has been renovated and you have heated blanket also heater in the bathroom with enough supply of hot water for shower. Food from the bistro was good, we had a sea food platter and snapper catch of the day ofcoz drinks, above average and satisfied. overall we are happy with our stay so far! Would recommend to you and don't mind coming back and stay. price, $99 for three adults, adding GST in total $130 for a night and $33 each. you don't get these services paying $33 and stay at YHA. good try! :) bicheno is a nice lil town to stop by on the way to hobart ps. :) best wishes t.

Room Tip: compare the price and read the comment on trip advisor before booking.
