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.

The hotel is close to the beach and we managed to see the penguins in the hotel site at night nearby the beach. However, the cleanliness of the hotel was very poor. The sofa, curtains and carpets looked old and dirty with dust over them. The living room did not have proper curtains which meant that people passing by the...

Dust on carpets, and curtains is just not true, The stoves are all working, there is an extra saftey switch, ask if you can't work it out, Selection of food on menu is by design, we have only fresh seafood, and only salmon, trevalla, and what ever is fresh is OK only..

Fantastic location to be able to walk down to the most beautiful beach. It was too cold for swimming but great foe walking along the beach. Unfortunately we were not able to walk to Diamond Island. The penguins arrived around 9:00pm and it was such a delight to be able to experience this. Our accommodation was very comfortable and clean....

We stayed here last year and the place was in dire need of attention but going back this year a lot of work has gone into improving the units.

We stayed for 4 nights this week. Was pleasantly surprised with the room and view on initial inspection. First night the room was serviced and then nothing for the rest of the stay. My husband had to go up to the office at 7am in the rain to give us toilet paper. Other than that, the room was nice. Large...
