    Swansea by the Sea”

    We stayed at Swansea Waterloo Inn for one night while driving up the east coast of Tasmania. The hotel is in need of some renovation, but the room was clean and fairly well appointed, with ours having a comfortable bed and a lovely view of the sea. There are some nice restaurants close by so we didn't use the hotel restaurant. The walk along the shore and around the point is worth taking.

    Great Location, But Needs A Makeover.”

    Location, Room Size, Balcony Views

    We arrived at the Swansea Waterloo Inn late at night (around 10:15pm), due to a busy day exploring at Port Arthur. The staff were helpful and stayed at the reception desk until we arrived to checkin, which was appreciated. The hotel is located close to all the facilities and shops available in Swansea with Magnificent views of Great Oyster Bay. We booked the Executive Spa Room, and whilst the room was fairly large in size, including a dining table and a bar, it was fairly outdated and in need of a makeover. The room had a very retro 90s look about it. What was most dissapointing was that our room included a Spa Bath and as we were filling the spa with hot water, the hot water supply ran out. After waiting for over an hour, there was still no hot water to continue filling the spa, nor take a shower prior to sleeping. Considering we paid extra for a Spa Room, this was particularly dissapointing and left us with a bad experience of the Hotel. The free WiFi password that we were given also did not work.

    The staff at Swansea were super kind and literally catered for our late arrival (8pm). We had no idea just how small Swansea was and our idea of eating out or buying some groceries was short lived as we realised everything was closed! Luckily for us, we were taken care of at the motel with a decent serve of fish & chips! The guys also gave us some great travel tips for the east coast (and north) and my partner was happy to enjoy some Tassie beers!

    It is located in the seaside with most of the room a beautiful sea view. We saw the sun rise in the room. The staff is nice and told you everything about Swansea on arrival. The town is not large. You can walk everywhere. Shops and restuarants are not far from the hotel, several minutes walking.

    Waterfront facing, spacious room, rustic feel

    It was a little difficult to locate this accommodation as we arrived at night. Initially we went to the accommodation beside. Downside is that our room was on the second floor and there was no lift. The room is spacious, good waterfront facing and heaters were working well. Enjoyed the beautiful sunrise from our room's balcony. It was a very good value for money stay.

    The ocean view, the friendly family staff, availability of family rooms, location to Freycinet Peninsula

    We stayed in an ocean view family room during our stay. The view was a wonderful and there was a small balcony we could go out on. The hotel is family owned, although I believe they were looking at selling before long. The family staff are wonderful, super friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant and bar downstairs. The food was good and drinks generous. The bartender was knowledgable on local wines. The downside is that the hotel is very dated and the rooms feel dark. If the interior could be updated I would give this hotel a higher rating.
