This property is extremely dated. It really needs to be gutted or knocked down completely. It was like we were in the 70's. The room was nothing short of revolting. The basin was not in the bathroom. I couldn't wait to leave at sun up.

Our internet research seemed to throw up quite a number of surprisingly cheap accommodation options in Swansea. Certainly rooms can be had at this provider for under $100, but they are smaller and with no views. For just a few dollars more, we were pleased we took the first level 'upsell' which comprised a spacious, clean, well appointed room (either ground floor or first floor) - both over looking shimmering Great Oyster Bay with the Feycinet Peninsula in the background. Although an 'older-style' motel, this property is very well appointed, comfortable, and exudes family run friendliness. There are relaxing gardens out front leading down to the foreshore and also a lovely walking track around the golf course to the Esplanade. No real negatives from us and if travelling Tasmania's east coast we always prefer to break our journey at Swansea which is equidistant from Hobart and Launceston rather than the more popular Bicheno, Coles Bay, or St Helens.

What a great little family owned and ran motel. Our room was very clean and welcoming, heater had been turned on prior to our arrival which was great in the middle of winter. Owner very pleasant and helpful. My only suggestion to make a stay more enjoyable would be a heater in the bathroom and electric blanket for the bed. Price was very reasonable as well, would definitely stay again. The view from our second floor unit was magnificent.

We stayed here for one night and wished our itinerary allowed us to stay longer! The check in was very friendly and efficient. Our room had a wonderful water view. The room was very clean and comfortable. It was an easy walk to restaurants and cafes. We would definitely stay here again!

If you need a place to stay during your road trip don't knock a good motel. Although the structure is old it is clean and even provides a microwave in the "kitchen space". It will serve you well with a clean and comfortable stay.
