Stayed one night while toodling down the east coast to Hobart. Met by Karen who gives the list of dining establishments that are open. Room 1 was warm, clean and comfortable. The ensuite is smallish but more than adequate. Although the B&B is actually on the Tasman Highway there is minimal vehicle noise - all you hear during the night... More

Karen and Bob's B&B is the most beautiful views of Swansea. We enjoyed the views of sunset and morning in room1. The room is very warm, clean and everything is in good condition. We didn't communicate with Karen too much, she was very busy that day. Each room with guest and no vacancy at all :P Next morning's breakfast is... More

We stayed here for two nights, Karen was welcoming and gave us all the information on where to eat and where to go etc. The room was comfy with a nice balcony to sit on in the day overlooking the water. Shower / toilet was a bit cramped and the water flow very slow for the shower (there was a... More

Our host welcomed us and was able to give us information re the general area and provided us with a list of eateries that were open.... More

We stayed here for a night. The owner Karen was fantastic. She walked us through the options for dinner and explained a bit about the town. The room was clean and comfortable. A balcony off the room was a great place to enjoy a glass of red looking out over the water. Breakfast was yum - bacon and eggs. A... More

Stayed at Freycinet Waters after we'd done a lot of driving from Hobart & Port Arthur and were desperate for good & comfort. Karen told us about everywhere to eat in the local area, saving us time looking round every place serving good. Rooms were lovely & comfy, and plenty of DVDs to watch from the comfort of our room...

A clean and well run B&B. Karen and Bob are excellent hosts. Breakfast was included in our rate, which was delicious, homemade bread, freshly squeezed orange juice and local jams. A hot breakfast was also on offer. Karen is warm and friendly with plenty of local knowledge. A great location to explore the region
