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

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!!!!!!!!

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.
