We stayed for one night this past March, during our visit to Tasmania. The management is friendly and helpful, providing tips on where to eat, etc. Our room was comfortable and clean. The entire property and buildings appeared to be well maintained and charming

My partner and I stayed 1 night in the Spa Suite (5) in Early June. It was cold outside but the heating and Spa Bath inside was perfect. The receptionist was lovely and we were lucky to meet their two sweet puppies as well. Overall expectations exceeded and would visit again!

We booked 2 nights here on our 10 night tour of Tasmania. Travelling with our grown up son we thought we had booked a cottage with 2 rooms but on arrival discovered our tour company had booked us all in a single room family suite - obviously not ideal. The reception team were brilliant and arranged for our son to... More

We stayed in the attic spa room, it was very clean with attention to detail. Lots of towels and the spa was lovely. Little kitchenette for making coffee & tea. It is slightly dated so that is the only reason I didn't give it a 5.

We loved our stay here - the spa room was incredible and the location lovely...right near the beach. The reception lady was so friendly and helpful and we felt very welcome. We wouldn't stay anywhere else and can't wait to come back next time we are in Tassie. Thank you!

We stayed one night recently in a 2 room cottage. Lovely homely feel to them. Ample room and a very nice bathroom. For the price we paid, we were hoping there might be a pool onsite. I guess it is not too much of concern in summer when there are so many beautiful beaches nearby.

Hi Tony Thanks for taking the time to review your stay at Swansea Cottages and Suites. We're glad you enjoyed your time here; especially appreciating the newly renovated bathrooms in our cottages.
