“Handy Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Very handy to the RSL and several eateries.Unfortunately everything is closed in Swanse on a Monday night other than the Pub which we were informed that if you didn't have a booking you would not get in.Settled on a great fish and chip shop.If ever a town needs a good kicking to get up to speed with the tourist trade it is this one.Back to the motel .It is fine and is ok for a night.Previos guests undies were left hanging behind the bathroom door was a bit off putting.

Went to Swansea for a 50th birthday party and wanted to stay local, Looked up places in Swansea to stay and here was only one that had a family room available, so we took a chance and booked for 2 nights. The room was clean and tidy with ample room for 2 adults and 2 kids.The Motel has an old world charm about it with decor to match. Location to town and shops are very good, with plenty of attractions/things to do close by. The only negatives about this motel is : no pool for children and not much room to park your car, but value for money and a clean place to stay....it is. Would I stay again the answer would be YES

Room Tip: Book room furthurest away from Road , more car space

First off I'll say I was a bit put off right off the bat as the owners mucked up our reservation. There was a group of us (4 couples and 2 singles) and we had booked 3 rooms, plus a two bedroom unit. When we got there they told us they had inadvertently given the two bedder to someone else, so we then had to share 3 to a room in two of the rooms that had a spare single bed in them. The owners, though flustered, didn't even offer a discount, just said oops, our mistake. They were full and said they couldn't do anything about it. Aside from that major stuff up the rooms were okay, but nothing to write home about.

We booked into this motel, "pot luck" at short notice, sight unseen and little knowledge for a one night stay. We were very pleasantly surprised to find a very clean, freshly painted,family run, home style and comfortable establishment. It is within walking distance to the main shopping centre yet not affected by noise. The rooms are reasonably sizes with comfortable beds and enough facilities to enable in room dining. There is also a cafe/function room, which operates most days as a coffee shop, BBQ area and there are both motel style and family room type rooms. All in all, it was a pleasant, comfortable and relaxing if brief stay at The Swansea Motel and is on our list for future visits. Well Done
