“Adequate hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2010

We traveled off-season and this was the only hotel open.It was definietly not as friendly or charming as the other hotels we stayed in in Tasmania. You have to boil the drinking water but they provide one small bottle of bottled water for free.
Dinner was working-class, but not bad.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2009

This is a basic motel. It has several floors, but no lift, bare brick walls, hose down carpet tiles, elementary furnishings, no internet and minimal service. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had everything you would need but nothing more and everything about the room and the service was average. As with most of the hotels in Swansea, the prices are above average possibly because of the views of the Freycinet Peninsula. Without these views the Waterloo Inn would be indistinguishable from a two star hotel in any small Australian country town. It is realistically a two star hotel at three star prices and is nothing to write home about. Take care with the water: Swansea water is not potable and in the bathroom at this motel it was brown and had stringy follicles in it.
