About

#2 of 3 B&Bs in Swansea
Location
Cleanliness
Service
Value
Freycinet Waters is in the heart of Swansea village. Everything is within an easy flat walk. Our property looks across the road to the delightful Great Oyster Bay. Water views can be found from most rooms and definitely from the breakfast room. Eat a filling 'English' breakfast while gazing out at the water. A great way to start the day. For those who are adventurous the menu includes black pudding and haggis. Our colour scheme reflects the water and the hues of the great sunrises & sunsets that you can see from the property. A 1930's style at the front of the house and a more modern day feel at the rear gives Freycinet Waters that light airy feel. Our prices include breakfast (or breakfast provisions), WiFi (the modern essential) and a small port to help you rest at the end of a busy day.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Freycinet Waters is a lovely B & B in Swansea, from the moment we arrived Bob and Karen made us feel special. Our room was beautiful with a lovely outdoor area to sit looking across the road to the beach. Bob was a master in the kitchen cooking up a beautiful breakfast. We loved everything about Freycinet Waters thank you Karen and Bob you are both perfect hosts and we will definitely recommend your B & B

Freycinet Waters is a lovely B & B situated across the road from the ocean! It is owned and managed by the very friendly Bob and Karen. Our room though small was clean and comfortable with ocean views! A full hot English breakfast is served each morning, with freshly squeezed orange juice, cereals, coffee or tea and toast! We stayed two nights, and had an amazing pizza on the first night, and dinner in the seafood restaurant the second night! Would recommend booking into this delightful B & B well in advance, as they are very popular!

Bob & his wife were fantastic hosts at this lovely central Bed and Breakfast in Swansea. They seem to have thought of every comfort and amenity a traveler requires and made a very cosy private and welcoming room. Bob explained the surrounding area on arrival and treated us to a lovely choice of breakfast options the next morning. Exceptional value for money.

We had the pleasure of staying 2 nights in the self contained unit at Freycinet Waters. Bob was so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcomed when we arrived. Our breakfast hamper was huge and very delicious. The complimentary port was definitely a hit with hubby. The unit itself is spacious, warm and well equipped…especially loved being able to do some washing. The location of the accommodation is literally across the road from the beach and I loved wandering down each morning to watch the sunrise.

We are fussy, but could not fault Karen and Bob’s service and facilities. They went out of their way on a few occasions over the weekend to accommodate our fussy ways. And Bob’s breakfasts are amazing!

Arrived in Swansea whist passing through to Hobart. The whole place was simply stunning so decided to stay overnight. We were greeted by Karen and Bob who we found to be so friendly. Stayed in an ocean view room which was beautiful. Bed was so comfortable along with the electric blanket. Thoughtful little touches like sweets and port and tea and coffee added to our relaxed feeling. The little balcony was another thing we liked. Breakfast was excellent and would not hesitate to stay here again

We really enjoyed our 1 night at Freycinet Waters. The room wasn't huge but fine for 2 people, with a smallish ensuite. The bed was very comfortable and it is a quite area so we got a good night sleep. The view of the beach from the bnb is really beautiful. The breakfast was very good and the owner was very friendly and liked to give advice on Tasmania- what to do and where to go. Swansea is very small, there are not loads of places to eat and the restaurants aren't open every day. You might need to plan ahead or go to dinner early.

Good view of the Bay. Woken by the soft sound of little waves breaking on the beach. Room was compact and had everything needed. Spotlessly clean, Welcoming hosts. Good advice shared about local attractions and restaurants (book ahead). Great location right in town walking distance from most things. Beautiful Bay walks from nearly at the front door. Well appointed.
