The accommodation is not far from town but you will need a car to head to town. Should not be an issue if you've got yourself to Bicheno. Town is about 3kms away. The unit was great and had everything we needed to cook our meals. It was very warm inside and the owner had the heating on for our...

After a bumpy drive up the uncared for entrance track we eventually found our welcome - a note on a whiteboard. Obviously other guests had the same problem because they came knocking on our door to find out how to check in. No contact with staff before during or when we left. This was bazar. The room was old and...

Highly recommend Bicheno's Ocean View Retreat! It was a last minute decision to stay in Bicheno while traveling down the east coast. Called quite a few places who were all fully booked out before calling the Ocean View Retreat. They had one room left, and I was advised it was a small, basic motel room. When we arrived, we were...

Built a few metres up on a hillside, this retreat offers superb views over the Tasman sea. The appartments are large, comfortable and well equipped and run by genial hosts who provide both a super breakfast choice and a free taxi service into town where there is a choice of restaurants for dinner. The retreat offers plenty of parking space,...

The appliances were old and quite a few of the light bulbs in the fittings were not working . In addition...

We loved this place. Really nice view. We did not go anywhere but just had drinks and cheese on our terrace and enjoyed the view. Very relaxing. Perfect little place on a hill. And clean. Would go back any time if I would be in the neighbourhood.

Upon arrival we collected the keys from reception and made our way to our apartment. We were pleasantly surprised to find breakfast (eggs, bacon, bread) in our fridge for the morning! The apartment was clean and tidy with a large TV and separate sleeping area. The bathroom had a washing machine and an average shower. Fantastic views are to be...

We enjoyed our stay here for 5 nights. The owner was very generous and gave us several bottles on arrival. We had a 2 bedroom apartment which was very well set up with all facilities for a lengthy stay. We would highly recommend this place.

The view is fantastic and the bed was very comfortable. We wanted self contained so we could cook as eateries in the area are limited. For some reason we were "upgraded" to the 2 bedroom house which is very dated. We couldn't use the kitchen as the oven was dirty and there was no microwave. No face washer in the...

'for some reason you were upgraded', is this a criticism? There is a microwave in the kitchen. It is full kitchen with everything you would expect in a domestic house. The mobile reception in Bicheno is a bit ropy...hardly the businesses fault. I appreciate the comments all be it don't agree with most of them. The Managers are extremely welcoming...
