Bicheno's Ocean View Retreat
Ranked #4 of 6 Bicheno B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 10, 2013

This is a wonderful place if you want to be away from the crowds. It is quiet and with the most amazing view of the ocean. The accommodation is comfortable and quiet roomy. The hosts are pleasant and helpful in their suggestions of what to see and do. We would like to go back and spend a week there, just relaxing.

The view from the rooms (we stayed in Spa Unit 5) is absolutely spectacular, with a huge sweeping white sand beach, aqua waters, sheep down by the waterfront, and lots of flowers and wallabies in the well-kept garden. Kath is a wonderful, friendly, unimposing host who was eager to please, full of suggestions, and really lovely to chat to. She made a beautiful simple breakfast for us every morning and gave lots of great suggestions too. The spa unit was clean, tidy, and had just about every amenity you could need (cutlery, glasses, chilled water and milk waiting in the fridge, iron & board, microwave, kettle, mini fridge, etc) and everything was very tidily kept. It was such a pleasure to stay here and I hope we'll be back sometime soon--a really memorable, quiet, peaceful getaway. Thanks, Kath!

Great location with views of the ocean (as suggested by the name). Kath and Ken were excellent hosts during our two night stay. Slightly out of Bicheno, so you get the peace and quiet. Would highly recommend.

Ken and Kath's property is hot and beautiful. You need to plan early to stay there. That's life. For better outcome, ask for details to fulfil your requirements. We didn't have the opportunity to catch Ken's handsome face. He went to Hobart on 29 Nov 2012. Kath was a great hostess and gracious too to bring my parents, parents-in-laws, wife and children to see the penguins. Kath, thank you once again. We will be back to capture your handsome and pretty faces in the next opportunity,

We stay for a night because we would like to be at Hobart for Salamacca Market. So, you may
want to go to East Tasmania on a Sunday for 2 nights at Ken and Kath's property before moving on to North Tasmania.

Room Tip: Unit 1 and 2 are great rooms. For use of wifi, ask the host for permission. I am sure they will hel...

We stayed in the studio and the room is far smaller than a motel room, you have to squeeze around the bed, there is no lounge and not enough room to sit at the table. The 'view' from the room and the 'private courtyard' is of parked cars. We forfeited 2 nights accommodation to go somewhere else, which was far better value. The property is a clumsily renovated brick house, certqainly not a 'retreat' or 4 star.

Our family stayed in Unit 2 over two nights in October. Ken and Kath have done a fantastic job making our stay very welcoming and comfortable. The place was very homely and the kitchen is fully equipped which allowed us to cook a very yummy dinner. We shopped at the local IGA and bought our delicious steaks at Sir Loin Brerer. The location of our unit is also spectacular. It was very tranquil and peaceful - our own little getaway. As we were located on top of a hill we had breathtaking views of the ocean especially during sunrise and sunset. The stay was a truly memorable finish to our Tasmania trip. We would love to come again! Highly recommended!

New kitchen facilities with everything you need. Nice hot shower. Comfortable bed. Sufficient heating. Cosy and warm. We had a great night sleep and were greeted by sea gulls and a cat in the morning. We did not see any wallabies or wombats around during our stay.
The only complaint from me, if any, would be the old-fashioned decorations.
