We stayed in a budget room and it was very comfortable, the motel is on the main road through town, close to beach and places to eat . Rooms have tea and coffee making facilities also a toaster and TV, hot water pressure in shower was great . Staff are very helpful and very friendly, great place to stay .

A one-night stopover for us, this was a great location right on the beach. There is no restaurant on site, but its only a 2 minute walk to the one in a neighbouring motel, which was reasonably priced, and IGA was over the road for last-minute supplies. Staff were friendly and helpful, room was clean and the bed comfortable.Being able...

We spent 2 nights in a ground floor room, with a water view. The room had recently been refurbished, and was comfortable and clean. The shower recess was a great size with a hot and powerful shower. The reception we received was friendly and helpful. Parking was easy, and right out side our door.

It was a pleasant change to be greeted by a smile and welcome. Unfortunately our first few days in Tasmania had not been as positive. Room basic but large and functional. We could also catch up with our washing in the laundry onsite. Motel looks directly out to the bay. Beautiful spot.

Nice little hotel. Rooms are pretty basic and could really use some updating. The view from our room was nice, looking out over the water. The shop is right across the road. However.... after the first night I had a sore neck, the next night it was even worse! The pillows are awful! I've never had to leave a hotel...

We stayed one night on our motorcycle tour of Tassie. We didn't book a waterfront room, but it was still a clean room with nice bed and linen. Bikes parked right outside room. A 10 minute walk to the Barkmill Tavern for drinks and dinner.

Great quiet little spot. Very private and right on the beach. Room was very basic but all that you need for a couple of nights. Walking distance to everything. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Swansea is close to wineries and great short walks

After reading recent positive reviews, I booked a bay front downstairs room here for a one-nighter. I did find a couple of negative reviews somewhat strange, but hey some travellers need bright lights, something Swansea is not known for. Research is a great tool. Warm efficient welcome, spotless private room, very comfortable bed and lovely linens, outdoor table was a...

I loved this little town. After being in Sydney, it was refreshing to be in a small town. The Inn was comfortable. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. There's a bottle shop on site. It looks like all the rooms face the beautiful water. It's outdated, but I liked it, clean comfortable and affordable!
