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

This is what I envision a granny cottage would look like, if my granny had a bungalow out back. Very charmingly filled with mauve, doilies and kitch, it was very comfortable and quaint, with very friendly and helpful hosts. The bathroom is functional but tiny, and the bed was comfortable but the pillows were a bit flat (after staying the... More

We stayed in the oak suite which was quaint and charming with a terrific view of the ocean. The room was spotless with an old English cottage style. We found the hosts welcoming and friendly. The breakfast supplied catered perfectly for our needs and we enjoyed a relaxing bbq at night whilst watching the sun set. The decor and furnishing... More

Charming cottages overlooking the water about 1km from Swansea village. Really comfortable, full of character and very good value. Sadly I understand all the cottages are for sale at present so visit quickly before it's too late. The owners are charming as well.
