Bicheno's Ocean View Retreat

Reviewed January 27, 2013

My wife and I stayed here for two nights. This was definitely the most relaxing part of our trip. The room was spotless and the bathroom was huge. Kath our host was an absolutely lovely lady and a marvellous host. Shs so helpful and made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were great and we enjoyed them on the porch overlooking the ocean. After two days here we felt really at home and did not want to leave. We will definitely be travelling back to beautiful Bicheno and will book here again without hesiation. My advice to anyone travelling to this area is to stay here.

Room Tip: We chose room 5 the spa room, perfect for two people and it included either a cooked or continental...

Our stay at Bicheno was made truly memorable and wonderful by lodging at the Bicheno Ocean View Retreat (BOVR). The views at BOVR are nothing short of sensational and the only noise we heard the entire stay was the lull of the ocean.
Our host, Kath, was simply delightful; friendly, obliging and helpful all without intruding on our space.
Our room, the spa room, was homely and decked out with little trinkets and treasures and made to feel like a home. That said, we had all the conveniences we needed and expect at a B&B, and could even receive phone signal coverage!
Kath cooked our breakfast to our liking and at the time of our choosing and pointed us in the direction of good food and entertainment in Bicheno.
Overall, our stay at BOVR was excellent and we've vowed to be back (every January with a little luck)!
I don't believe you could do better in Bicheno.

Fantastic place well worth it staying. Only regret was having booked one night as we wanted to go inside Tasmania too. We'll definitely be back there.
Close to Wineglass bay, Coles bay and bay of fires. Those are one of the most beautiful places on Earth!

Thanks Kath!

We had a ground floor self contained unit & the view from the room was absolutely gorgeous. A great place to watch the sunrise and sunset. Kath was very friendly and helpful. The room was big, clean and had everything we needed. The property is very private and quiet. Denison Beach just down the road is beautiful. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Be aware that it is a 2 to 3 minute drive into Bicheno. We came directly from Launceston aiport to B...

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.
