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.

Noel and Neal were great hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. Room was clean and warm. Breakfast was amazing with muffins, croissants and bread, then they asked what we would like to order as well for a hot breakfast. Whatever we didn't eat they then wrapped to take with us for the day. Good place to stay.

A period house (circa 1850's) which is quite charming with its eclectic decorations. The room was comfortable and contained everything you would need as well as a decanter of port. A bonus was the home made muffins you received on arrival. Breakfast was stunning. Quite the best I have tasted in years of travelling over every continent (except Antartica). Even provided us with a doggie bag for the left over bakery products (all home made and superb). Highly recommended and we will try and go back there in the not too distant future.

Stayed 1 night on the first day of our Tasmanian holiday. Great hosts, beautiful rooms (port was a very nice touch), delicious breakfast and we even got to take a couple of muffins with us for morning tea! Full of character and welcoming atmosphere so would highly recommend.

A lovely old house with many period features. A comfortable room with all amenities you could need. Centrally located close to everything. The hosts were lovely and gave us heaps of local insights. Would recommend this accommodation for a one or two night stay at most.

We stayed two nights as a base to explore Freycinet and Maria Island, and it was definitely an enjoyable stay. The twin room upstairs was comfortable and had all the essentials. The backdoor provided great convenience to the carpark. Other areas had wonderful heritage charm. The breakfast was definitely the highlight. The al carte options had amazing variety for starters and mains, and the food was exceptional (perfect eggs and wild mushrooms). Definitely do not need lunch after those superb meals. To add a cherry on top, we were given carry bags for the truckload of pastries to finish for lunch. Thank you Noel and Neil. As a small town, Swansea does lack dinner options after dark and walk-ins are especially difficult. So would recommend an early dinner before 6pm or reserve a table.

We enjoyed our stay at Meredith House, staying in the Spa Mews unit. It had all we needed- nice bed, small kitchenette, sitting and eating areas. Neal was a good host answering our questions about the area and places to dine. Would recommend a stay for a couple of nights.

Noel and Neil are great hosts, the rooms filled with eclectic charm and the whole ambiance of the listed house is wonderfull. The two dogs that rule the house are totally charming and Dougall spends his life getting in trouble for looking for pats and scraps. Special mention goes to the breakfast. It is some of the best cooking ….. hands down…. That I have experienced. Noel should go on Master Chef as he would win it. The lads are great to chat with and nothing is too much trouble for them.. I cannot imagine how you would find fault with this place and what it offers. If you do then it says more about you than the amazing experience you will share in this home. We are planning a return to base out of this place to better explore the area and Maria island.

This was our 2nd stay at Meredith House. Last visit was 10 years ago and it's still just as good. Stayed in the Mews and they have everything you could need. The breakfast is absolutely the best we've ever had in a B and B. Thank you Neal and Noel for a great stay, we loved it!

At the recommendation of a friend who stays regularly even though he doesn't live far away we booked a night at Meredith House and Mews. Neal and Noel are the best hosts. Greeted at the door by Neil who was out watering in the beautoful garden. Upgraded into a gigantic room with an extra bedroom. Handed a plate of muffins that had been freshly baked by Noel. Super compfy room that had everything we could wish for and more. We'd been told by our friend that the guys served the best breakfast on the east coast and he was not wrong. Croissants like airships, eggs benedict to die for, fruit salad, more pasties, a doggy bag to take away what we didn't eat. All of the baked goods made in house by Noel. Amazing. Loved our too short stay at Meredith House. Highly recommended!!
