This accommodation is very overpriced and leaves a lot to be desired. It rained heavily and there were leaks in our room, we couldn't wait to check out and move on, didn't even bother mentioning faults to the room and facilities!!! Upon arrival we checked in only to be served by a very disinterested host, at that point we knew...

By far the worst accommodation ive ever stayed all over the world. We booked a 2 night resort stay and were both horrified. The rudest of staff was the start of a horrible stay. The Room was not clean, dishes were dirty and put away wet. Kitchen stank of fish with 2 dity putrid bins. No toilet paper. A long...

Tired and run down hotel. Room was unclean and dishes had to be washed before use. Wifi and Foxtel were non existent. Cigarette butts and weeds competing for space on the balcony. The bin in our room smelt of putrid fish and had to be put outside to avoid retching. There's more but it's too depressing to keep going. If...

We were looking forward to a few days at a resort, what an advertising fraud. no penguin tour.. they walk through the bottom of the garden, there are no "shacks" just end to end single room accomodation, with a bed and a fold out couch! Very disappointed for the price we paid. The chef was sick and the manager had...

Like most of the reviews (which I should've read before hand) the venue like to rip you off with your money. The arrogance of the proprietor is a total power-trip and the place wasn't ready when we arrived. On top of that the room was filthy. These people are utterly filthy with excuses such as - we've only taken over...

Never been treated so rudely. What we found in our travels to be friendly Tasmania was spoilt with our stop at this resort. We were driving down the coastal road of this picturesque coastline when we pulled into the Diamond Island resort to ask if they had accommodation for that night or to plan for future travel. The woman we...

The Resort is very nice and have a very good scenic view. It is just next to the penguin habitat. And you can see the penguin walking inside the resort at night. The room equipped with full kitchen ware.

Great views of the beautiful beaches which were in walking distance from our room. We had booked three units for the family. One room had not been cleaned when we arrived well after check in time. It had been missed. When it was cleaned, it wasn't that clean. The sliding door was really hard to open, the fridge didn't work...

The penguins only get into the room when you leave the door open, which we do tell all not to do. As after checking there were no holes in the walls.. Management.

This place is more than what I expected...besides awesome view of the beach, everything in this resort are new & beds are comfortable. The only regret I have is not staying here long enough. Will definitely come back if I go to Bicheno again.
