We only had one night here, but wished we could stay longer. The room was modern, clean, roomy and had everything we needed - the table and chairs on the balcony were an added bonus as our room overlooked the ocean. We used the guests' laundry which was great and the offer of pegs etc. was most appreciated. We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

There wasn't anything majorly wrong here just not as amazing as some of the other places we have stayed. Recent renovations meant it was clean and neat. Staff were helpful to a point, but got the feeling they were just "doing their job" rather than the friendly, enthusiastic service we had encountered elsewhere.
Food was disappointing. We ate at the bistro one night and though servings were generous, hubby's lamb cutlets were over cooked and my meal was drowned in sauce. Breakfast was expensive and after finding a third of an egg shell in my poached eggs ( which were again over cooked) we didn't have any more meals here.
Better than a park bench but we would try somewhere else if we returned.

We only stayed at the Beachfront for one night. Our room looked out onto the ocean and we had a little table and chairs set on our patio. It was very picturesque. The bistro/pub was convenient for a meal, although it was very crowded. You might want to book a table if you are going there for dinner.

We stayed here for one night as a couple during late February 2014 after a one night stay nearby at another hotel that was nowhere near the standard of this one. We found the staff at the front desk to be very helpful and accommodating in allowing us to view a room before we made a booking - as we had had a bad experience in Swansea earlier. They were also very helpful with the minor queries we had during our stay. There are many rooms that face the sea, all with pleasant views across to the water, but we were able to choose one of the two rooms that are on a second level up some stairs which gave us an even better view. The room was very clean, well equipped with good sized flat screen TV, a modern bathroom and a balcony with a great view across to the water, boats and headlands beyond. The mini bar was well stocked and very reasonably priced. The hotel has a solar heated outdoor pool with many rooms that overlook it. We wish we had stayed at this hotel for both our nights in Bicheno and would go back there if ever in the area again.

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.
