“Wow those croissants and muffins!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

We stayed here for two nights during a weeks visit to Tasmania, I had booked all the B&B on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews and I was not disappointed.
The room was airy and though the bathroom was small and dated it was very adequate.
The service was impeccable and the breakfast to die for.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

We stayed here for 1 night earlier this month and our party had 2 rooms - 1 and 6. They were both nicely furnished although the various shades of red, orange and pink in our room clashed a bit and didn't quite work! However, both rooms were spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed.

The breakfast was very good with a huge choice of juices, cereals etc, but we were disappointed with the cooked breakfast. I think it had been standing around as the bacon was very over cooked and was inedible. I wouldn't agree that this was the best brekkie in Tasmania, as had 2 better ones elsewhere.

We found Swansea a bit of a one horse town with a very limited choice of restaurants after 7pm. We went to the banc in the end which was very good and just down the road.

We have stayed at Meredith House 4 times on our annual visits to Tasmania and will continue to stay as long as Neal and Noel remain hosts. The breakfasts are to die for with superb attention to detail (try the super juice and bircher muesli), the accommodation is tasteful, and the views over Swansea and Great Oyster Bay are superb. Neal and Noel are wonderful and entertaining hosts and Lulu (the West Highland terrier) is a sweetie.

Room Tip: The two rooms which directly overlook Great Oyster Bay but all rooms are beautifully and eclecticall...

We stayed two nights in a Mews room which was a good size, tastefully fitted with quality furniture and a decent bed. The cooked breakfast included in the price is absolutely first class. The hosts are friendly with time to chat when they are not fully booked (first night) and professional when they are (second night). The only thing not up to scratch was the water pressure in the shower - very low. We were only in Swansea to visit Freycinet National Park but found it to be a very pleasant little seaside town with an excellent Fish & Chip shop where you can eat in and BYO wine.

My family and I enjoyed a lovely 2 nights at Meredith House. We stayed in the family room and found it to be a perfect arrangement for travel with little kids. The location was wonderful as we were able to wander into town, to nearby restaurants and even to the playground down the road. Noel and Neal were superb hosts - breakfast was delicious with homemade muffins, croissants, fruit juices and eggs/bacon/mushrooms/tomatoes made to order. They even pointed us towards a sheltered nearby beach that we had the pleasure of enjoying all to ourselves. The beds were comfortable and the house was quiet at night. The room could have used an additional fan, but i'm happy to say that that is my only gripe. it was a pleasure.

Professional and accomplished hosts, Neal + Noel also have a delightful sense of humour.
The Bed was extremely comfy, the room spotlessly clean and the breakfast so superb we missed out on lunch.
Cannot recommend highly enough, a delightful find.

Room Tip: The mews room we had came with a (UK) King sized bed which suited us taller people. No need to worry...

A house with history! We stayed in Room 1 which overlooked Swansea and Great Oyster Bay - lovely big room; very comfy. Nice verandah downstairs with view over the bay - good to sip a wine and read a book. Great (and I mean delicious) breakfasts. Noel and Neal were excellent hosts - good humour, good advice on local surrounds and very attentive to guests' needs ... and then there's the delightful LuLu. Swansea is an excellent base to enjoy beaches, good restaurants, the wine region and Freycinet National Park walks.

Room Tip: Room 1 is large and overlooks the town and the bay.
