We shared one of the cottage mews with our teenage son. The place has character, including the hosts, and overall liked the quaint experience even if the beds were a little uncomfortable, and the shower was very basic. These things didn't bother us. The breakfast was good, loved the home baked croissants, muffins etc and the fact that we were given a plastic bag to take them away with us on our day's outing. The hosts pay alot of attention to giving the best service and the two little dogs were cute as well. Very informative about restaurants in the town, and agree with other reviewers - you must eat early in this town. We had fish and chips both nights from the fish and chip where you can either eat in or do take away. Had a nice walk around the bay. We didn't realise however, that there is not much to do in Swansea itself - you have to go to Coles Bay to look at Freycinet National Park so be prepared. Best advice is to book yourself in for the boat trip into Wineglass Bay as it books up pretty quickly. Also recommend the walk up to the lookout over Wineglass Bay and the walk to the lighthouse.
