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.

We stayed 2 nights at the Swansea Cottages which we found very comfortable and cosy. We stayed in Sherbourne Lodge Suite 3. Check-in was very easy and Karen was very helpful in providing information about places to go. The facilities in the room were very acceptable and there was tea and coffee making facilities. Milk was provided on arrival. I would recommend Swansea Cottages to anyone travelling around Tasmania.

We had a wonderful overnight stay. Would have enjoyed staying longer if we had more time. Found this place at random while on a Tasmania road trip. Unit was very clean and comfortable. No cooktop in our unit, but did have a microwave. Also had a nice soaking tub. Town is small and very walkable to grocery and restaurants. We would enjoy staying here again.

Very comfortable cottage accommodation, which we have used for the last 3 years. Close to beach and were well looked after by host Rob. Nice BBQ set up, and large grassed area which we used to display our cars.

Staying here was one of the stops on our honeymoon. We stqyed for three nights. The cottage is very well set up and the concept of having the master bedroom upstairs with a toilet, kitchenette and a two person spa is awesome. BUT it was very disappointing that the spa was not working properly ie very little in the way of air coming from the jets. It was for all purposes just a big bath. It was acknowldeged by staff that we had specifically requested that specific cottage so as to have the upstairs setup with the spa which we paid premium price for. Even more disappointing was to have a response of 'we're sorry but the owner wont be back until after you leave but you're free to see if you can fix it yourself' and then not offer of a discount for not being able to utilise the very thing that was the reason why we booked there in the first place.

Response from Rob Golley, General Manager at Swansea Cottages & Lodge Suites
Responded 29 Sept 2023
Hi Bobby, We are sorry that you experienced a problem with the spa and sadly staff were unable to assist in this instance as like yourself they had no idea as to what the problem was or could have been. Being in the country we experience a shortage of trades people such as plumbers and being several hours from Hobart plumbers can take a few days or even weeks to schedule a visit. Then if parts are ordered, sadly further delays. I am not making excuses, however staff cannot just fix something they know nothing about. The last spa that I fixed I found a guest had let a face washer be sucked into the air intake resulting in blocking the pump. Once again, I do sincerely apologise that the air flow was not as good as it could be, although apparently the water jets were still working well. I wish that I could have been onsite to have a look at it for you and once again apologise for the spa not working as you expected. Thanks Rob

Two nights in Swansea was perfect. Quiet little town & Swansea Cottages was a great place to rest awhile. Our unit was very well equipped with everything you need. Appreciated fresh milk & having hand sanitiser available. Never seen a TV mounted on BIR door before but it worked well - open door for watching TV in bed or closed for watching from the couch. Loved having a bathtub to soak in too.

A gorgeous small but cosy 2 br cottage and wish we stayed longer than 1 night.  It was clean, comfortable and with great heating as it was quite cold. The only thing water pressure wasn't strong. It had a washing machine and dryer so it was great to do a load or two. Parking was great, right next to our cottage. Would definitely stay again even though it is quite expensive.

Hubby and I are travelling through Tasmania and called into Swansea to look for accommodation for the night. We stopped into the Swansea Cottages reception to enquire about a vacancy and greeted by two lovely ladies who were very helpful. We stayed in the most well appointed cottage with washing machine and dryer which was great for us travelling! Spotlessly clean and very comfortable bed and furnishings and great value for money. Will definitely stay here again on our next travels on the east coast of Tasmania. 10/10 Highly recommend.

Hi John, Thank you for your return visit and review. We are pleased that you found one of our hotel units provided many features of an apartment to make your stay comfortable. Perhaps if you are able to return for a future visit we invite you to try one of our fully self contained cottages which are ideal for multiple night stays and even more comprehensively equipped. Thank you again for sharing your review and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.
