“Good short term base camp”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

We used Bicheno as a base camp to have a look around the east coast. We opted for a beach view room. Clean and modern. Would benefit from some basic crockery and cutlery. Watch out for the smoke alarm when using the toaster. Helpful reception when asking for places to visit. Only slight negative are the thin walls - we could hear faint snoring in the room next door in the early morning quiet.

We found this Motel be be very comfortable for our first night in Tasmania. We did find it a little different to the main land when seeking Motel type accommodation but this applied to our entire weeks tour. The room was inviting and well equipped with the restaurant above average for both evening meals and breakfast. The hotel next door was a welcome watering hole after our drive across the mountains from Launceston. If any complaint could be directed to the Motel it would be the cost was a little above similar stype accommodation on the main land. The management was very helpful and friendly.

When you drive into a Motel, you never know what to expect. From the courtyard of Best Western Beachfront Bicheno our initial impression was of an institutional facility. But when we opened the door to our room and walked in we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was spotless, spacious and comfortable and beyond the big glass doors was our own balcony with table and chairs and a great view out to sea. The room was air conditioned and the queen size bed was comfortable and fitted with an electric blanket. Milk for teas and coffees was supplied at reception when booking in and we were interested to see instant noodles included with the mini bar stocks! As expected, the large bathroom was not a disabled bathroom, but had a large walk in shower, grab rails fitted and a shower chair was ready for me at my request. The toilet pedestal is normal height so a bit low for my needs but the grab rail helped. Extra towels were provided readily on request. Our room was several doors down from the onsite Bistro Tavern but we weren't disturbed by noise at all even though it was a Thursday and Friday night. We didn't eat at the motel but instead went to the Sea Life Centre, almost across the road, for lunch (delicious!) and made our own sandwiches and breakfast. We found the staff helpful and friendly and Bicheno is a beautiful place to visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We stayed at Bicheno for 2 nights and found the BW was a very good base for what we wanted to do. Very clean and well equipped - breakfast in the room was included in the price. We paid extra for the ocean view and had a really nice patio area overlooking the water. Can't fault it.
Unfortunately, there was a lot of Japanese in a big party in different cars, who were so noisy with banging doors and shouting until the early hours, then they started again before breakfast. Some thought for others would have been nice!

We stayed here one night while on a trip around Tasmania. We were mainly in Bicheno to do a penguin tour before heading on to Freycinet the next day. The hotel was basic but all you need, and the swimming pool was very much enjoyed after a hot day in the car.

The penguin tour picked us up from the hotel, along with the entire bus load, many of which seem to have come to meet at the hotel from other places, so that was handy that we were staying at the pickup point. We didn't collect people from anywhere else.

We had dinner in the restaurant which was very nice.

The whole place is a little dated but very clean and tidy.
We paid $130 for the night which considering the location is probably the going rate.
Probably the pick of the rooms would be the ocean view, we had a room around the back which is fine for us
The bar/restaurant has good views.
Good shower pressure too
