We stayed two nights at the Swell, and found the accommodation well appointed, but tired. This is primarily a fishing lodge catering to people who care less about pristine 'au courant' design than clean and practical amenities and a relaxing atmosphere.
The bed was comfortable and fresh, but the room was very musty, and I squashed several ants on the dresser. The shower was good and hot, and the towels fresh, but the bathroom seriously needed updating and there was a very messy caulking job all around the perimeter that highlighted the poor handy-man type of finish work that really will only get worse with time.
Our host was friendly and welcoming, and the view outstanding, but if you are looking for posh, this ain't it.
