Stayed here recently with a friend, the host was very friendly and attentive, giving us some ideas of what to do around the area and where to go out for dinner. Room and bathroom were clean and balcony with a great view! Would stay here again, thanks.

This is one of the very few times i've been let down by tripadvisor. I cannot understand how this place got 4 stars. Its horrible. Our room had a horrible stench, everything in it from the chipped sink to the plastic toilet looked ancient, the pillows were flat and the room was extremely noisy - both from the cars on... More

You chose to stay in our budget... More

Super friendly owners, we were on our honeymoon so they gave us the spa room which was delightful!! Little town so not a lot to do but we loved sitting on our patio reading a book and looking out over the beautiful great oyster bay!! Lovely to just sit back and relax.

Excellent hotel, friendly welcome, nice bright clean and comfortable room with great views of the sea and mountains in the background. Unfortunately the sun refused to shine. Local fish and chips excellent!

What a great place to stay, five friends and I were on a motorcycle ride from Devonport to Hobart on Friday the 8/11/13 it rained on us the whole way and by the time we reached this oasis we were soaked to the skin, cold, and tired. I really want to thank Stuart and his wonderful family, we gathered up... More

Travelling from north east to hobart swansea is about half way . The motor inn is situated right on the beach. Within 200 metres of the boat ramp. Walking distance to supermarket and cafes and restaurants. The is a charming place to stop and relax. The price is good at $115.00 per night for two or $85.00 without water view.... More

Stayed here for a night and was delighted at the cleanliness of the rooms and wonderful views of the bay. Good price for the room you get moderate 3 star accommodation. Going through Swansea for a night I would recommend staying here.

We stayed on the first floor with views overlooking beautiful ocean at Swansea. The staff were really great, helping us by setting up the barbeque overlooking the beach and providing us with tools, oil, serviettes, crockery and cutlery. Our party of 14 had a fantastic evening dining al fresco looking at the beach. Great value, great view.

Room was large and comfortable but dated, couldn't get passed the painted besser blocks. The view over the bay was amazing. The bathroom was well equipped with nice towels and they supplied shampoo, conditioner and shower wash. Free wifi which was handy as the mobile coverage in the town wasn't great. About $10 over priced compared to what's available in... More
