Similar to a comment below I don't want to criticise this place much as it is nice, right next to the water, clean rooms, comfortable bed in the water view room, lots of space, fridge, microwave, cutlery, plates etc., in short walking distance of restaurants,garages, supermarket, post office etc. I just think its overpriced for the standard of the interior...

We stayed here one night only. Whilst traveling around Tassie we have noticed a considerable difference in what you get for similarly priced accommodation. This place was clean and had everything we needed so I don't want to knock it too much. It's just that we have experienced far more luxurious accommodation for the same money. In it's defence it...

When we stayed at Swansea on Saturday night I found it to be very quiet with a great view of the beach. I could lay down in the bed and see outside. The bed though was firm but bouncy. The TV was incredibly small. If they put in a decent size TV I would rate the room 5 stars. We...

Thank you for your review we do a lovely quiet spot and Excellent views, but I think that you may have the wrong motel, perhaps the one next door, it looks like our view but our bathrooms have pale tiles and different vanities, also our spa rooms TV is over 100cm so although it isn't a cinema screen, wouldn't be...

We booked online influenced by the excellent reviews. Unfortunately we were given rooms in the old building. Still firmly 60s standard. Carpet not clean. Bathroom not suitable for an elderly or large person. No luggage rack. Overpriced for that standard considering the time of the year.

Hi Julie, Yes we do have older rooms, the room you are put in depends on the room you have booked and the price you have paid, our best rooms are the more expensive rooms. The cheap rooms have not had the money spent on them that the newer rooms have. Our rooms are vacuumed daily and we have specific...

I stayed in this hotel with a friend whilst travelling the East Coast. The hotel is fairly basic, but it does and has everything you need. The location of the hotel is amazing and the views and backdrops are out of this world. The local town 'Swansea' is beautiful and friendly. We were recommended a local pub down the road...

I recently travelled up to Swansea for work and at the last minute decided to stay overnight. I was warmly welcomed at the Swansea Motor Inn and was very surprised to be offered a complimentary upgrade to the water side. How lovely! Big tick to the service all round. I didn't get the wifi working, and breakfast was on off-site...

It was blowing a gale outside, but the view over the bay looked great. Average room, especially for the price, but it was comfortable. It had a bath, which was nice to take the chill off. The car can be parked close and it was quiet.
