Lovely cottages of various sizes with all amenities including paid wifi, and good TV reception. DVDs available for rental from the reception. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable about local places to visit. Nice sandy beach within 100 metres. Need to provide your own breakfast but there are 2 supermarkets in town and several nice places to eat or get takeaways.... More

Great accomodation and friendly service. My wife loved the wild rabbits eating grass outside the cottage. Close to local Tavern for food & drink. Great place break your trip between Port Athur and Bay of Fires.

I just simply loved the place... Everything was provided for... We had so much fun cooking and eating dinner at home for a change... Definitely would consider choosing Swansea Cottages when we get the chance to go back... Thumbs up to the management....

The cottage was very nice in an English style. We enjoyed the spa in the bedroom. It was very quiet. The location close to the beach is convenient for a quite walk along the sea. Our hosts were very nice and helpful. The cottage was close to all restaurants in the city center.

This apartment was both comfortable and well provisioned. A tiny kitchen but everything one could need for a "cuppa" or breakfast or a bigger meal. The bed was very comfortable, the sofa also. Perfect for two people. Despite adjoining three other units we didn't hear any noise through the walls except the tv at one stage. Very private and surrounded... More

Toilet and shower in one room, no bath. Tennis, fishing, dvd's, washing powder all cost extra. Had to ask for a box of tissues. There are electric blankets on the beds and kitchen is equipped for cooking meals. No servicing of cottage.

Stayed there to be close to Freycinet National Park and it was what we where looking for, nice and clean room. We stayed in one of the rooms with just one queen bed and a 4month old baby and it was really comfortable and spacious.

Owner is very friendly. The cottage is clean with all the modern technology (wifi, digital TV etc). Bed is very comfortable. Hint, Quiet town and not too many restaurants open on the weekends. Make sure you make dinner reservation.
