Ideally placed for the Freycinet Peninsula and the best weather in Tasmania this old colonial homestead has great character but also is set up for modern comfort. Gail is a great friendly host with lots of local knowledge and does very nice breakfasts. We are happy to recommend this B&B to others.

A great location out of Swansea directly off the Tasman Highway. Very friendly proprietors. We stayed 2 nights and borrowed a DVD in the evening. Breakfast was good with a fine selection. Liked the idea of giving your breakfast order with time required so that the cooked element was always ready after the cereals etc.

We booked our accommodation a month or so in advance – a little late considering the time of year that we were travelling. When we drove into the property, a quick sinking feeling was encouraged by the hand-painted this direction sign, and then the glimpse of the roof point peeling off screaming attention needed. But any foreboding was lifted when... More

Very friendly proprietors went out of their way to make us feel at home in their period colonial accomodation. Beautiful location with well kept gardens, handy for exploring Freycinet, Swansea and the Freycinet wineries. We only stayed one night but could have stayed longer. Breakfast cooked to order. Highly recommend.

Although Swansea has little to offer, this B&B certainly makes up for it. It is quaint and spacious (except for one room) with charming decor to suit the age of the house. Delightful grounds where several guests lazed in the late afternoon with their bottles of wine - the house just begs you to do it. Wonderful hospitality. A good... More

My wife and I enjoyed an overnight stay in this lovely setting. Bed was firm, room comfortable and hot breakfast was great. Host, Gail, was very helpful and put us onto the local hotel for dinner (which we highly recommend the crumbed Tasmanian scallops).

Lovely colonial home on gorgeous grounds, superb english cottage gardens, chooks,a Ram, lots of room to spread out and enjoy the country feel of the estate... Rooms decorated beautifully, (we stayed in garden room free upgrade). Gail is a wonderful hostess and the delightful breakfast from Nigel was mouthwatering. We will be back!!

We both enjoyed our stay at Redcliffe House, property had been renovated to such a great standard. We met Gail the owner who was very welcoming and friendly but did not meet Nigel. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and the bedding very comfortable - loved that there was an electric blanket too! Room was very spacious with... More

We stayed at Redcliff House for a night in August 2014. It is a gorgeous older style house, with an English cottage garden, beautifully decorated, warm and cosy. We had a huge upstairs room with a view over the garden. The room was large and furnished with a bed and lounge/sitting area. Both Gail and Nigel were wonderful but unobtrusive... More

We unfortunately only had one night to spend in Swansea but Gail made us feel very welcome and I loved the way they have done up the whole house and garden (including curious animals). Great bed, and breakfast was plentiful and tasty with lots of options - from very healthy muesli/ cereal to a great 'big breakfast'
