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. Unfortunately I don't think you would find too many properties around Tasmania (except maybe the larger hotels) with swimming pools; the swimming season isn't long enough to justify...

We stayed in Swan which had 2 bedrooms for 3 nights in January 2016. We had booked for 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) but the second room can accommodate up to 3 people with the current configuration of 1 bunk bed and a single bed. So really this place would easily accommodate a family of 5 in 2 bedrooms....

Swansea is a useful base town for exploring the scenic East Coast of Tasmania. Located on the calm waters of Great Oyster Bay, it is a pretty town, with a nice beach that's perfect for strolling. Being only about 40 minutes from Freycinet National Park travellers can enjoy the delights of that area while based in Swansea. With two supermarkets...
