Bob and Karen are great host, it's one of the reasons why we chose to stay in B&B cos the host will always be giving you the best advice & tips on what to see, do & eat. Karen gave us the waterfront room which had a little balcony with a view of the sea & mountains. We love it!... More

Karen made us welcome from the moment we stepped through the door. Nothing was too much trouble. The bed was comfortable and the cooked breakfast tasty (including haggis or black pudding - but i wasn't that game). Clean and tidy with facilities as advertised - all the basics with a few bonuses. Would recommend this place to other travellers.

Our room was excellent, ample facilities, warm and very welcoming! Gutted we didn't get to use the SPA bath but could imagine after a long day... More

Located in a beautiful spot, just a short drive to Bicheno and Freycinet. A cosy little cottage is perfect for a small town experience. Karen and Bob make a great team.

Stayed overnight after a quick visit to the Freycinet National Park. Reason we decided to stay at this place was because it was located close to amenities, local shops at Swansea. Wonderful hospitality and room is was well furnished. Wifi worked really well. Considering some other places were slow. Lovely breakfast served in the morning. We stayed at the room... More

Both my wife and self spent 4 fantastic days at this outstanding B & B. Our hosts were Karen & Bob Rodgers, and we were waited on hand and foot nothing was to much trouble, we also observed the same service on other guests. The knowledge of Swansea and much of Tasmania was great helping those who required assistance as... More

This lovely, full of character bed and breakfast delivered exactly what was advertised. My husband I spent two nights here recently and cannot fault it. We stayed in Waterfront room 2 (not exactly waterfront but across the street from the jetty and beach in Swansea) which had a nice view and a private verandah accessed from the room to enjoy...

On arrival met by friendly owner. It was so nice and personal not like a hotel where the receptionist sits behind a counter. Room was terrific with ocean views. Close to beach, restaurants and short drives to touristy things. Breakfast delicious.

This was a great B&B. Karen was a wealth of knowledge and Bob cooked a great brekky. Nice finishing touches were some port to drink and a heated towel rail. Lovely place and was close to restaurants. Bed was comfy and it had a nice verandah which we sat on and looked out over the water.
