On arriving I was greeted by friendly staff at reception which helped me get settled with information about the town. I stayed 3 nights in the Kirby Cottage. It was a comfortable stay. Beds are very nice and the couch was nice to relax on after a day of sight seeing. A short walk to a lovely beach. Would definitely... More

Swansea's location adjacent to Freycinet is a plus however finding good value accommodation proved difficult for us and we booked this cottage somewhat late last year as it had the best of the reviews. Staff members were very helpful, Dove cottage was quaint, the beds were comfortable and there was good tv reception. The kitchen only has a bar fridge... More

It was the most disappointed stay of our trip in Tasmania. Not worth, the most expensive one and the smallest cottages we had. Very tight for space, can't move around if opened the suitcase. No self-catering equipment. The only thing we like is the restaurants, few nice and good restaurants nearby.

Dear Natnatchong. It is a shame that none of our cottages were available when you made your reservation, as you actually booked a motel-style Suite, not a Cottage. All our Cottages are fully self catering, with separate bedrooms, bathroom, a full kitchen and laundry, as well as an open plan dining and living area with plenty of room for 4... More

My partner and I absolutely loved our stay. The cottages are beautiful and the staff are lovely. We had the spa suit up in the attic, perfect getaway from our busy life. We Can't wait to go back!. Highly recommend it to everyone. Swansea is a beautiful little town with great food and with wineglass bay only a short drive... More

We over nighted here on our way from Hobart to Launceston. The beauty of this is it allows you to do Wine Glass Bay in the afternoon and have breakfast at The Elephant Pancakes at St Mary's. About an hours drive. The cottages are well maintained and cosy . We were met by a very hospitable lady at reception. We... More

Swansea Cottages look great from the outside but that joy is alas short lived. The room itself is basically three rooms per cottage and very tight for space. Our room had a very ominous stench about it but when reporting this to reception one was made to feel as if no one ever dares to provide constructive feedback at this... More

Dear razor131. Wow! You comments shock us. Perhaps if you let us know which cottage you stayed in, and on which dates we can follow up your review properly. Your review is in contrast to the vast majority of others. More

We enjoyed everything with eyes different to bringing kids. Two adults perfect. Room away from road is good, it was quieter at the back. Liked the walk to the Bark Mill for a great dinner, very nice experiencd. Walking the beach to town ezy.

Stayed 3 nights in the delightful Swan Cottage. Very attractive, comfortable and a 'home away from home'. Very neat and exceptionally clean and had everything we required. Swansea is a great place to spend a few days and the perfect place to stop on the way from Launceston to Hobart. Loved the Freycinet Peninsula for its spectacular scenery. Would recommend... More

First of all I was welcomed by a lovely woman in reception who gave me ample information on where to eat, driving distances and things to see and do. When we entered the cottage it was immaculate and walks the fine line of being modern but having a homely feel. Only downside is that the room didn't get remade whilst... More

Wonderful place to stay at. Just as clean, comfortable and tidy as the five star hotels in Hobart. Views are great. Gardens around the cottages are so sweet. Should be your number one choice when staying over in Swansea!!!!!!!!
