Basic hotel, very clean room and extremely friendly staff. Fabulous "room with a view" could not fault. Nothing fancy but very handy location. No meals or breakfast though I do believe you can purchase a continental breakfast supplies from reception. Great bakery five minutes up the road for a hot delicious breakfast.

So we arrived and were greeted by a very nice Sible who offered us a 'room with a view' which we took (room 17) We had a great view of the bay and so with drinks in hand we spent 1/2hr enjoying it. My wife then went to the toilet and discovered after the fact that there was no toilet... More

Oh Splendid, Thank you for your wonderful review, unfortunately Basil was busy out the back with Manuel that day, better luck next time. Toilet paper, yes that was hidden away in the cupboard by one of our cleaners, very unfortunate, We should have delivered the whole box but Sible didn't think of that, the old minds going you know.

Stayed one night in a beach-front room. You could hardly get closer to the beach or the splendid view across the bay. Very well located, easy walk to shops, cafes etc., ample parking. Room was clean and seemed freshly painted, bathroom modern and well equipped. But it was the only motel or hotel room I think I have ever seen... More

Hi Neil, Thank you for your review. We have removed all of the phones from the rooms as many people used them but failed to pay for the calls. Instead we happily let people use one of our office phones free of charge for any calls that they need to make.. Being a family owned motel in a small country... More

This motel was recommended by (Tammy) at the Visitor Information Office just a short distance away, and this was extremely helpful place to start. Stayed Sunday May 3 2015 on ground floor on the bay side. The room was beautifully presented, clean and tidy. A short walk to most amenities, and a great place to eat (forgot name) but located...

The bathroom was clean and had running hot water.As far as the locality is concerned where there are just a handful of motels,... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Swansea Motor Inn and did not tire of waking up to the amazing views. The room was very clean and comfortable. We found the owners very friendly and helpful. It is situated close to a very good restaurant- the Saltshaker, which is definitely worth a visit.

I think we got the special needs room as the bathroom was fully wheelchair accessible but still worked for us. The room lacks any flair for decoration but does have a spectacular view of the water from an awesome balcony. Unfortunately, the weather did not co-operate and it was rainy and cold so we could not enjoy it. The t.v.... More

We stayed 3 nights (at first thinking that would be too long) but it was fabulous! The bed and pillows were fantastic, providing us with the best night's sleep every night.
