2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

Polite receptionist very run down park. It's in a good spot but needs lots of maintenance. Games room nearly everything was faulty and filthy. Cabin ok linen clean, beds uncomfortable but be warned keep your shoes on in cabins floors extremely grotty. Very basic accommodation.

I think an average rating is spot on for this accommodation. From check in to check out the staff are a little stand offish and are there to hand you your sheets and towels. The units are quite "cosy" and bit of a face lift wouldn't go astray. They are clean enough to feel comfortable and are OK if you are just wanting a bed or a shelter between adventures. The price is not good value but you will generally pay a premium in peak season for accommodation in these small, out of the way towns.

We had a grassy, powered site for our small camper van. It's a nice, friendly campsite very close to the beach and only a short walk into town. There is also a lovely walk round the headland with views of the town and across the bay to Freycinet.
The facilities are not brand new but we found them clean and well maintained. There is a small pool and a camp kitchen.

We paid $160 a night. Smallest, uncomfortable place I've ever stayed. The toilet flushed when it felt like it, you couldn't stand near the plug hole in the shower for dear of it collapsing, the door was so noisy it would have woke the dead, the ledge at the door was so high we tripped over it all weekend, the lock on the door may as well not been there, the fly screen door was falling off, one of the power points was faulty and worked intermittently. This ontop of the couch having all sorts of crumbs and dirt under the cushions, the floor being sandy when we walked in, cups dirty in the cupboard, the outside light not working and the 'heated pool' that was advertised on the net was freezing cold and despite my phone call 2 days prior to our arrival to advise of our children coming and they would need bedding and this wasn't done or noted upon arrival well I'm sorry but with 4 of us hiring cabins for the weekend and none of them being fantastic I think it's fair to say we will not return nor will be recommend Swansea Holiday Park to anyone.

This park is perfectly situated by the bay in beautiful Swansea but is desperately in need of some love and attention to its slightly rundown but otherwise clean facilities.

Also, at $50 per night for a powered camp site for a family of 5 it is about 20% more expensive than it should be compared to better appointed caravan and camp grounds in Tasmania.

Stayed in our own caravan at the Swansea Holiday Park on a lovely grassed site. Holiday park as powered and unpowered sites as well as cabins.
Out our "back door" was the start of a walking track around the heads. Saw a seal in the bay and an elephant fish. Picturesque Freycinet was just over the bay - almost close enough to touch.
Amenities in the park were very clean and tidy. Day was a little too cold for a dip in the pool. Children's playground suitable for young ones.

The beach at Swansea is not as attractive as others with white sand further north on the east coast, but the track into town which goes around the golf course right next to the sea is worth a walk. The track itself has a long Aboriginal name which unfortunately I have not memorised, but if you google Wellington Point Walk, Swansea, it will probably come up. The friendly owner recommends the walk when she gives you an area map on check-in. It is very easily accessed from this park.
When I was there in early December there were only about 4 cars in the whole park so it was very kind of the owner to offer a cheaper cabin. (See below for a slight negative though.)
It was easy to sleep in this quiet park and town at that time of year but a downside is that if you are running short of supplies the supermarket closes early.

Room Tip: If you think rates are too high when the park is not full, ask if the manager's cottage is avail...
