We stayed 3 nights here and this property was clean and comfortable. Good location and lovely views of the sea. Comfortable beds which was nice. Great size bathroom and lovely to have the spa bath as well. The shower recess is quite small and a bit of a pain not having a shelf to put your soap on or other...

Accom is rather limited in Swansea and Coles Bay especially over a busy long weekend. Only booked at last minute with the hotel direct and the phone communication was excellent. Checkin was professional and the managers are extremely helpful with information about eating and touring. We were thinking about doing a cruise on wineglass bay and they pointed out there...

If the name "Motor Inn" doesn't make you think of luxurious fittings and opulence, then I don't know what will. When you can buy two minute noodles and a plastic bowl for boiling them in at the reception, to cook in your rooms microwave, well I must say it made me feel like a movie star. Most places wouldn't think...

Ahh Yes our opulent Budget style Motel was very happy to welcome you to our small Remote Country town, I am very sorry that I forgot to get our population of 500 out on that night to keep things open late specifically for people from the big city who would like to stay up and have us entertain them all...

Stayed in Swansea for one night travelling Tasmania. Room was second storey with a great view overlooking bay and nice green lawn with garden. Accommodation is a bit older but the room was very neat and clean. Would easily stay here again.

Without much budget choice in this area where it is quite close to Fleycinet, this hotel is one of a good option, the hotel is opposite the supermarket and gas station with a view of beach. Unfortunately not our budget room, compare to the picture in their Website or Expedia, the room is more outdated but clean and good enough...

We were forwarned that the only room left available (aside from an ocean view which wasn't in our tight budget) was the "dungeon". Lovely staff to communicate with, to our expectation that room wasn't bad at all. Just small, as explained to us and the facilities were just in need of some TLC as this room is the only one...

Stayed for 6 days as a base to tour the east coast. Room, towels and sheets were clean and fresh. Location is great overlooking Oyster Bay. Bed was a tad hard for my liking. But best of all, the location to the bay, the sound of water lapping on the beach and the walkways. Relaxing site

Our stay in Swansea recently for two nights was very peaceful. The vista from the balcony was beautiful and relaxing. The walking track in front of the motel was used each morning by my husband. The motel provided easy access to the Freycinet National Park with a short drive and was well within walking distance of eateries. The motel was...
