All of Piermont's advertising literature describes this as a luxurious resort so we had high hopes when we arrived here. Unfortunately the resort doesn't live up to this claim. We stayed in a one-bedroomed cottage which was close to the water's edge and had a fantastic view out over the Great Oyster Bay to the Freycinet Peninsula. This is where... More

My partner and I stayed for one night and loved it. Yes, we saw millipedes. Yes, we got a whiff of the seaweed on rare occasions. But it didn't matter at all. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The fire was set and ready to go. The greeting at reception was warm and lovely. The 5 course degustation dinner with... More

We stayed in unit 10 which is the weatherboard spa cottage. The cottage itself was beautiful and the view amazing. Unfortunately there was an infestation of millipedes. I'm not talking a couple- we killed over 100. It was like a horror movie!! They ended up in our daughter's cot and we even just found some in our suitcases when we... More

The cottage we stayed in had a fireplace and was made to look like and old Cottage from England and it was so warmly and welcome, even so my partner started the log fireplace in the middle of Summer (mad or what) but it was part of the experience. Some people have commented in their reviews that their is a... More

Was mildly concerned by some reviews citing shabbiness, however the cottage (two couples in a two-bedroom stone cottage) was absolutely charming, well maintained and prepared, especially considering we checked in early. The location was spectacular and peaceful. The restaurant experience was divine, the service excellent, absolutely worth the cost. The only downsides to the stay were the unfortunate river smell...

After reading some very mixed reviews before our 3rd weekend trip to Piermont in 6 years, we were slightly nervous about what to expect. With an initial slip up with our booking, we were greeted upon arrival with a terrible smell of sewerage, before making our way to our room, which was spacious, clean and really comfortable. The website description... More

My husband and 2 young girls enjoyed a 3 night escape at Piermont in January 2014. The resort is a short drive south of Swansea but the quiet and tranquil setting away from holiday bustle makes that totally worthwhile. Our cabin was very close to all facilities, the view from our deck across the bay was breathtaking. The cabin was... More

Lovely cottage overlooking the sea, fairly expensive (but have found all Tassie and Australia to be so). I would honestly say by Aussie standards the place was great. Juan accommodated us at very short notice (a party of 3). Cabin/cottage would have been fab for honeymooners, well equipped, lovely bedroom, bathroom and kitchen more than adequate. I guess the place... More

This place is not worth the money you will spend. We paid for the honeymoon suite and expected luxury. The 'spa' is actually a shower/tiny corner spa bath. There was no shower curtain, the floors were sandy, there were centipedes in the bathroom and the room dusty. This place has potential but it is not maintained which is evident from... More
