Great location, close to the beach, Swansea town and only a short, picturesque drive to Freycinet and Wine Glass Bay. Owners Belinda and Kerry were very friendly and hospitable and have a knack for nice touches (e.g. Wine & Chocolates on arrival, freshly baked bread and free range eggs, etc). A memorable stay we will return!

So glad you two enjoyed your stay Brett ! Yes, we are lucky with our position on the picturesque East Coast. Maybe next time, when you both can enjoy a wine there are several vineyards in the area also ! Very happy that you found our bed to your liking, particularly after the big day across at Freycinet National Park....

We stayed in 'studio' which is much more spacious than I had expected. Lovely private garden, beautiful linens, great coffee, everything is great quality - gorgeous wraps for sitting in the garden in cooler weather. Very comfortable bed. A private paradise for a getaway with close access by car to freycinet national park. Worth a visit to the local, humble...

We keep coming back to Wagners because we can't find better. Accommodation is great, service is brilliant. We will continue to return here as often as we can. We have stayed in many hotels and B&B's around Tasmania but have not found one in this price range that equals Wagners.

This establishment is truely one of a kind. Friendly hosts providing a "human touch" for their guesses that goes far and beyond the service that you would normally expect. Fresh bread and scones, jam, eggs in the kitchen to port and chocolate in the lounge room we're just some of the welcoming homely items that we discovered. A home away...

What terrific place! Our Primrose Cottage was delightful. It was quite spacious, very clean and extremely comfortable. Belinda and Kerry made our stay so pleasant that we're already talking about a return visit in the next few years. We just can't say enough about how wonderful the Wagner's Cottages are. Also, if you're interested in exploring Tasmania's extraordinary east coast,...

After a long drive we arrived at the cottages and went directly to the "Primrose Cottage". As others have noted the gardens are suburb and the cottages have all the creature comforts. What impressed my wife and I was the attention to detail (flowers, pod coffee, chocolates, the decanter of fortified wine and the warm, no fuss check in and...

Stayed in Hollyhock Cottage for 2 nights and we were blown away by its perfection. Very comfortable, well equipped and beautiful. Belinda looked after us and had wonderful suggestions for restaurants, local as well as in Hobart. One of our favorite places in Tassie.

These beautifully restored cottages are the crown jewel of luxury accomodation. Every little detail is thought of - from bubble bath to candles for the spa, to freshly baked bread on arrival and freshly baked scones when you are noticed being around for afternoon tea. Chopped wood for the fireplace, a warm wool blanket and superb port keep the evenings...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wagners Cottage is heritage listed and the gardens and estate are still surrounded by original drystone walls built by Michael Wagner and his son in circa 1860. Our four cottages are positioned throughout the estate and as such, enjoy an atmosphere of serenity and privacy. We have studio, one and two bedroom cottages, most with open log fires and luxurious spas to enable you to relax fully after a days exploration of our beautiful Freycinet Coast and surrounding wineries. ... more   less
