We recently stayed here and enjoyed the location and the view. The motel was clean and the beds comfortable. The only thing annoying was having to wash your cups and cutlery. I normally don't mind doing this when there's a proper kitchenette. However, in this instance I had to place a too big tub into the tiny bathroom sink and...

When you go camping you never expect to encounter the wettest ever day in Tasmanian history. Thankfully I was able to find refuge here to wait out deluge. the reception was delightfully warm and cozy and helpful. My room had a view of the bay which when not clouded in mist and rain was quite relaxing. I was in easy...

We ended up staying here by default due to a double booking but it was sooo much better! Large room, clean, more than decent bathroom. But you walk out onto a little patio & the sea is basically on your doorstep it is amazing. Dont be put off by "motor inn" it is well worth a stay if stopping in...

This motel was in a lovely location right on the beach. We stayed in the budget rooms. Although these rooms are quite tired and dated they were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The prices were quite high for the standard of the room but guessing the owners have to charge these prices due to the motel having...

Paid 135.52 Singapore Dollars for one night. Swansea Motor Inn is a good choice for a stop off on the way up the east coast of Tasmania. Check in was friendly and efficient. Room was fine and clean. Again with the horrible top covers on the beds that I have a pet hate for. Wifi worked fine. I'm marking it...

Swansea is a quiet place, so although we had a room towards the road it was still quiet. The room was fine with everything we needed and we could park the car right outside, so very convenient. Convenience store across the road.

During our 10 day drive around Tassie, this was the most expensive room that we booked. We had a premium room which overlooks Oyster Bay, but even so, this room type is overpriced when compared with other rooms with a water view in places like St Helens, Orford, Burnie and Strahan. We booked late and this was all that was...

We had a 'Standard' level room and I think that could make all the difference at this motel. The standard rooms do not look over the water or even have the same colour linen as the higher level. Our room was quite basic and seemed like it was out of the 70s both in colour scheme and design. The shower...

Stayed one night as passing through to Port Arthur. Room is dated, large but has great views and is right on the beach which has easy access down to it. Room had one queen size bed and a double bed. Bathroom was dated but clean. Not the best accommodation but not the worst. On site car parking infront of room.
