“Excellent - puts many an expensive hotel to shame”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

Everything was great about our stay here. Karen, the owner, has great attention to detail and really cares about her guests. Rooms spotless, fantastic views of the water, terrific breakfast - freshly squeezed orange juice and real coffee a big plus for me !

If only all reviews were so simple to write !

This was a really well appointed unit. Laundry, comfortable bed, deck with a view, plenty of space, good kitchen, clean. They provided breakfast food - very generous and really nice fresh, local food. Very friendly and helpful manageress, gave good advice. We thought it was a bit closer to Freycinet National Park, the only downside, it's a bit of a drive, but there are excellent vineyards on the way!! Very nice to come home to and walk to nearby (very good) cafes etc. Good heating.

Room Tip: We had an upstairs one bedroom self serviced apartment

Having arrived late in the evening we were lucky to get a booking. Had checked this out in Lonely Planet guide but it was not given that good a review. On arrival asked if we wanted fresh milk for tea and coffee and given that I had only phoned 30 minutes before we were surprised when the room was warm on our arrival. Pleased to say excellent value for money. $140 which included breakfast for two. Ccomfy bed and pillows. I am a bit like the "Hotel Inspector" and was impressed. Here is someone who knows how to clean. Yes I am a bit OCD and the sheets were crisp - lovely!

From start to finish, we had the perfect stay.
We had chosen the King room with spa and were not disappointed. The room was spacious, beautifully clean and well laid out with a dressing room and a spacious ensuite with spa bath. As we arrived in the late afternoon, when the day had started to cool down, Karen had been into our room and put the heater on. A lovely, thoughtful touch - Thank you Karen.
On the table we found port, 2 glasses and some chocolates. Again, a lovely touch. In the ensuite, at the end of the spa were wine glasses, just in case you fancied a glass of red or bubbly whilst in the spa. Candles too were at the end of the spa to create the mood.
The room was serviced daily which involved topping up the port and the chocolates - lovely.
Breakfast on each of the 3 mornings was superb - thank you Bob. Karen was always so cheerful and welcoming even at 7:30am which is when we asked for breakfast.
Breakfast was taken in the room at the front of the house overlooking the peaceful waters of Great Oyster Bay - what a great way to start the day.
This has to be the perfect place to relax and unwind at the end of a busy day.
Thank you to Karen and Bob for being such wonderful hosts.

My wife and I stayed for two nights in Room 1. We found the room to be very compact, comfortable, clean and a few extra little touches like port and lollies made the stay very enjoyable. The position of Freycinet Waters could not be better with easy walks to either end of the small town and a short stroll to the beach or jetty area. Breakfast could not be faulted with Bacon, Egg, sausage, fried tomatoes, mushrooms, black pudding and last but by no means least Haggis . If there was one thing that was a small let down then it would be the en-suite which was a little cramped but when only staying for a couple of days it was quite acceptable (remember this refers to room 1). We would recommend staying here and you would not be disappointed

Room Tip: Room 1 has terrific views of the beach and down to the Jetty

This is a great little B&B right in the heart of town. Our hosts were just fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. Happy to chat and full of knowledge they were delightful. This B&B is spotlessly clean, comfortable and convenient. Fully recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Freycinet Waters is in the heart of Swansea village. Everything is within an easy flat walk. Our property looks across the road to the delightful Great Oyster Bay. Water views can be found from most rooms and definitely from the breakfast room. Eat a filling 'English' breakfast while gazing out at the water. A great way to start the day. For those who are adventurous the menu includes black pudding and haggis. Our colour scheme reflects the colour of the water and the hues of the great sunrises & sunsets that you can see from the property. A 1930's style at the front of the house and a more modern day feel at the rear gives Freycinet Waters that light airy feel. Our prices include breakfast (or breakfast provisions), WiFi (the modern essential) and a small port to help you rest at the end of a busy day. ... more   less
