We got this motel as part of a package deal, it is very old and in our room the ceiling was a bit ordinary, as well as bathroom needed work. The owner needs to put in king or queen size beds and do some serious work on the place. It has AMAZING views but its age, datedness really let it... More

On the ocean this 70s style accomodation is nothing special but neat. Run by a lovely lady who is more than willing to assist. Swansea is a small seaside town which has few places to eat out so dont leave it to late to eat as you might find everything is closed. Try get up for the sunrise it is... More

Had a ground floor spa room, very clean, & the spa at the end of the day was great. Beautiful views over the bay, & we've decided to go back & take the boat with us & stay another 3 nights in the same room.

Reasonable stopover for a night while exploring the East Coast of Tasmania. It has waterfront location with spectacular sunrise views. It is due for a renovation but the rooms are comfortable. Very helpful staff.

You get what you pay, for that price is hard to get better room or amenities. Some molds in the bathtub, room a bit smelly and a wi-fi service that drops every 5 mins. We didn't have any meal there so I cannot give my opinion. The room had an internal door connected to next room (weird), which we could... More

When I questioned the price i... More

Arrived late into Swansea and had to take what we could get. Definitely the worst value for money out of our 8 different lodgings in Tassie. The place is tired and the double bed is tiny and uncomfortable. I'm not usually so critical but this place was really a disappointment.

From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel very welcome. The hotel itself is far from new but is very clean and comfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was nice and reasonably priced, as was the local wine, try the Gala Estate Pinot Noir. I stuffed up our plans for the next day and we needed a late checkout.... More

The room was ok, access via stairs. We found the bed uncomfortable other than that the hotel restaurant was busy but friendly, the owner served behind the bar and promoted some very good local wines and beers.
