Good value and very friendly host. Swansea itself is not the greatest tourist destination however LesterCottages are lovely. Very nice to find complementry breakfast items in the little kitchen. The only slight negative is that we were further out of town than I would have preferred. Plenty of car parking and the area felt very safe . A very quiet... More

The proprietors of these cute cottages couldn't be more friendly and helpful. Our cottage was very clean and pleasant to stay in. The bed was crisp and comfortable, we had a good nights rest there except for the clanking water pipes from the people next door from time to time. Breakfast was supplied, so there was a bedroom and ensuite,... More

Quaint little self contained cottages on the outskirts of Swansea. A real hidden gem. Although a little on the small side, they have a kitchenetee / lounge, separate bedroom and en-suite. Immaculately clean and styled in blue and white. We could not fault this place at all, a lovely night's sleep on a very comfortable bed. Ample breakfast provisions were... More

Is a nice little cottage. Cottage owner is a very friendly n helpful lady. Facilities in the room is pretty good ( of course can't compare to those 5 stars hotel in big city ) but for a cottage, is consider good enough. A quiet place with sea view room. Good place for relax, Worth the money.

We stumbled upon this cottage after travelling for 2 weeks and wanting to cook for ourselves. So glad we did. Swansea is a very quiet town but close to Freycinet, a lovely place to visit. Robin, our host, gave us a warm welcome and was very accomodating, even organising our washing so we could visit the sites instead of waiting... More

A very nice find. Well located with beautiful views. Neat and comfortable cottage with perfect hosts. Definitely recommend for a stay in Swansea. Close to wineries, Freycinet National Park and the quaint town centre.

We recently had the pleasure of spending a few days at this really delightful place. Lester Cottages are small, cosy, cute,comfortable, just right for two people. Robyn our host was the most delightful person, very helpful and a little concerned that my husband may not fit in the shower as he is well over six feet, but he did. The... More

We had intended to stay at Bicheno but it was booked out so we looked a little further South along the path of our trip. We stayed two nights in Swansea, instead, and the experience was lovely. It was by accident, effectively, that we found Lester Cottages and we are still congratulating ourselves on the happenstance! The cottages are clean... More

We absolutely loved staying here! The cottages are in English style and very cute. The owners put the fire on every day, so you come home to a warm and cosy cottage after a day of exploring the Tasman East Coast. When you go to Swansea, this is THE place to stay. They have a bbq, the views over the... More
