Wow, wow, wow! Stayed in some high end places but these guys! Serious? If you stop here and are disappointed, you will never be satisfied, they have thought of everything! As soon as I checked in I knew I made the right choice, Karen was lovely and very informative. I had the upper apartment with water glimpses from the bedroom.... More

This quite small (3 rooms maybe?) B&B was perfect for a short stay. Delightful host, excellent breakfast, cosy and comfortable room and right in the middle of town. I know where I'm staying next time I'm in town.

Arrived on Saturday to a very friendly welcome. The unit was clean, well appointed with a lovely outlook and full of sunlight. Home made bread, Tassie yogurt and lots of food for our breakfast. Was a delight to be able to walk to all the restaurants , though have to admit the prices were all a little expensive at these,... More

A warm welcome is assured from Karen. She and Bob run an efficient, clean and friendly establishment, overlooking the sea and the mountains of the Freycinet peninsula. The breakfast is superb, with lashings of bacon and the famous haggis or black pudding options. You won't need lunch! Comfortable rooms. Free wifi was good, as was the personal attention from Karen... More

Wow, what a great find and an absolutely superb location with excellent host. The cooked breakfast will sustain even the hungriest person for most of the day. Fantastic host who are friendly and helpful. The accommodation is very well kept and clean. It is also central to the town with all shops within easy walking distance and a lovely walk... More

The host Karen is very nice. She introduced all the facilities of the room in details to us. She recommended restaurants around us with detailed last order time. She provided us a very full and delicious breakfast generously which was cooked by her husband. The room is large, tidy and clean. The neighbourhood is so peaceful. Really like this B&B.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Freycinet Waters is in the heart of Swansea village. Everything is within an easy flat walk. Our property looks across the road to the delightful Great Oyster Bay. Water views can be found from most rooms and definitely from the breakfast room. Eat a filling 'English' breakfast while gazing out at the water. A great way to start the day. For those who are adventurous the menu includes black pudding and haggis. Our colour scheme reflects the colour of the water and the hues of the great sunrises & sunsets that you can see from the property. A 1930's style at the front of the house and a more modern day feel at the rear gives Freycinet Waters that light airy feel. Our prices include breakfast (or breakfast provisions), WiFi (the modern essential) and a small port to help you rest at the end of a busy day. ... more   less
