This was a good size room with a wonderful view to the beach and beyond. yes it needs a facelift but it was a good place to stay for a night. The poor lady working there was doing everything herself - bar, dinner, bookings for the hotel, bottle shop, table service and checking out - she was very busy and...

The views from the rooms were lovely, it was in a great central location and the staff were friendly...but that's about it! The bed was too small and uncomfortable, the TV was too small, the fridge was too small and the room was dated and dark. The restaurant was temporarily closed (due to lack of staff apparently) and it was...

We got a cosy room, all linens, bathroom, floors, furniture were clean. It's dated, but everything works. The location is exceptional, being right next to the beach. We loved being able to have a swim and then just walk back to our room in 5 minutes.

Overall the hotel needs a facelift. Double bed not very comfortable and most places now have queen beds. TV very (!) small . However, the staff were friendly and the location was good. Only about 45 minutes to Freycinet National Park, beaches and the Coles Bay and Wine Glass Bay lookouts. Considering the size of the town, a reasonable selection...

We stayed 2 nights at this Hotel, it was very clean and updated to 70's style, the wood and brick dates it, but well worth visiting Swansea. The Restaurant staff were very pleasant and welcoming and the food was good.

As per most of the other reviews, the Waterloo Inn needs a spruce up...but for a one night stay was ok. Would have been lovely on a warm summers night to sit out on the balcony with a beer listening to the waves.

We enjoyed our stay here, the room was clean, bed comfy and we enjoyed the view. Free laundry and wi-fi which was a bit slow at peak times. Easy parking and an ideal stopover if your touring the east coast.

Solid, well appointed accommodation. Central location but just far enough from the highway. Great views, beside golf course and right on the beach. Free laundry and the Wi-fi really was free to all rooms, no limit and fast . Will happily stay here again.

The 1st floor room was a little dark but sufficient and clean. The decor is little dated but OK for one night. Staff very helpful. Restaurant below had good food at fair prices. Located at end of beach but close to walk on sea side of nearby golf club.

This motel is right out of 1960. Dated brick walls, dark interior, tacky plastic chairs, and a general bit kf a run diwn look. On the other side, new beds, carpet and quite clean. Just remember you stay here because it is oceanfront! You look at the beach and ocean.
