“Lovely”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

After driving for several hours with my elderly mother and grumpy partner is was such a pleasure to spend the night here. Wendy was most helpful in giving us a room that suited the 3 of us so well. There is no noise and there is a restaurant only steps away and lovely view. I slept better than I do at home!

My Wife and I stayed in room #29 on 30th May 2013. From the outside, we weren't sure what to expect (looked a little plain), but on the inside, absolutely beautiful! It was a large room that looked like it was recently refurbished (everything looked brand new), which had a double bed and a single bed. Tea, coffee, biscuits and milk were all complimentary. There was a paid minibar in the room as well, but we didn't have anything from it.

Bathroom was a reasonable size, and was nice and clean. The shower is a bathtub with a shower curtain. Not a huge fan of curtains, but they were spotlessly clean, so no dramas there.

Beds and pillows were comfortable, with extra pillows available in the wardrobe. Good sized flat screen TV with Foxtel/Austar channels was also in our room.

Out the back door of our room was a swimming pool (too cold, didn't use it) and a kids playground.

The motel is within easy walking distance of the main town as well as the local tourist attractions (blow hole, gulch, etc). Also within walking distance to see some penguins at night as well.

Motel was in a peaceful location. We didn't have any noise issues at all.

Staff were absolutely amazing, and the lady who runs the show there is really lovely. We were due to arrive late, so she called us during the day to advise us on where to find our key to get into the room.

A very pleasant stay, and would definitely stay here again the next time we're in Bicheno.

We stayed in one of the front rooms with a fabulous view over the bay. The balcony was a great spot to while away the hours and watch both the sunrise and sunset. The room was very well appointed. All very new and 'swish' almost 5 star. The rooms were remarkably quiet and very comfortable. We enjoyed it so much we booked another nights stay.

Room Tip: Front rooms are relatively new and give a fabulous view over the bay

We stayed in rm49 which is a sea facing second floor room, accessible by a manageable metal staircase. Great views of the bay overlooking Bicheno and the sun setting over the Tasmanian hills, it was a treat to sit in the balcony and watch the traffic and the world going by on the A3.

Room was clean and comfortable and spacious and furnishings looked new with a sofa and coffee table.

Stayed three nights over a long weekend. Room was 4Star( lost one point for a very hard bed - not comfy) Room was serviced daily and always spotless. A real pity that the Bistro was not up to the same standard which dampened the whole experience - went there hoping for great East Coast Seafood, instead got frozen Bucket of Prawns, Mussels overcooked - shrunken to 1/8 of the shell and 3 pieces of 'Sunday Roast' Lamb. No wonder the place was empty. Pity as this could be a great place overall if only the Food was as fantastic as the 2nd floor Room we had with a fab view.

Room Tip: Beachfront view is great either floor tho only 2 on upper floor( nice and private with balcony). Pad...

We stayed here after a fantastic cottage in Mole Creek, so it was a bit of a come-down, but not a bad place, just a bit cramped in a family room with 2 teenagers. The reception was very friendly and helpful, nothing was a problem, just ring. We chose not to buy breakfast as it seemed quite expensive, but didn't find any good alternatives either. We ate dinner at the beachfront bistro attached to the hotel and it was ok - the banana sundae was pretty amazing :-) Bicheno at this time of year is mostly closing down for the winter, so don't expect too much.
