“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We stayed at Meredith House for two nights and we enjoyed our stay. The suggestions for places to eat and visit were welcome and proved spot on. We traveled as a couple but I think it would be an ideal place for the single traveller also. Tasmania is wonderful and we loved our time there.

Thank you Neal & Nigel for a wonderful stay. Comfortable beds, teriffic atmosphere and lovely old house with character. The breakfast was outstanding. Home cooked with love and perfection. Great location. 2 mins stroll to the centre and information centre at the corner of the street.

Hosts Neal & Noel are so good at this & time (10yrs) has not diminished their enthusiasm. We stayed in 1 of the Mews (4 separate little studios next to main house) clean, beautifully presented & welcoming. Gorgeous garden view from back verandah. And now the brekkie...fantastic! Everything you could possibly want plus what you didn't even know you wanted. Lots of home cooking too...great coffee, breads..eggs, bacon, hash browns..just wonderful. Plus I fell in love with Dougal & Lulu...equally important hosts!

We only stayed overnight, but the upstairs room in the Historic House was comfortable, and had everything we required. They advertise that breakfast is a veritable feast and they are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. The staff are very attentive and ensure that you have everything you require to enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: If you find stairs difficult then a room in the Mews section would be a better option

Meredith House is a great guest house offering travellers a different experience. The house is uniquely furnished and decorated. Rooms are comfortably appointed, with good quality linen.

We arrived early (unexpectedly changed our route) and were permitted to access the room immediately it had been cleaned from the previous guests. Hosts Noel and Neal provided advice about local attractions and places to eat.

Wonderful full breakfast provided with lovely views from veranda.

If overnighting on Swansea, do yourself a favour and book at Meredith House.

With only 5 days/4 nights to travel up the east coast from Hobart to Launceston we decided to spend 2 nights in Swansea, the halfway point. Our choice to stay at Meredith House was based on all the amazing reviews, and we were not disappointed.
On arrival we were upgraded to a Mews room, which is furnished with a queen bed and a single, so great for those travelling with a child or a 3rd person. There was a great little enclosed kitchenette, and in the bathroom plenty of toiletries, and a spa bath, as well as a heater for the colder weather.
We could park right at the front door, and out the back was a small verandah and steps to the back garden.
The bed was very comfortable, with lots of big fat cushions to lounge on whilst watching the large flat screen TV on the facing wall, and free Wifi.
It was lovely after several hours of driving, to arrive to fresh baked muffins, coffee facilities, and a decanter of port in our room.
There are plenty of brochures in the broom, and our hosts, Noel and Neal were full of helpful information and suggestions for our local sightseeing.
We had delicious berry crepes at Kate's Berry, enjoying the lovely view across to the Freycinet Peninsula, and we also called in at 2 local wineries for a couple of bottles to take back. The pizza was excellent at the Bark Mill Tavern.
The main building is beautifully restored and furnished in old world style with a comfortable sitting room.
And of course, the highlight was the delicious breakfast - Baked ricotta, baked oatmeal ( like a bread and butter pudding) Tassie yoghurt, fresh fruit salad, home-grown stewed peaches, plums, appples. then the juices including a smoothie and fresh power juice, a basket of home baked warm croissants, muffins and brioche, on our tabe, and a doggie bag because you could not possibly eat it all, although I tried everything. A hot meal was also served - eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms and meats.
This is a fantastic B & B, it met my expectations, and more. I hope I can return one day

Room Tip: Choose a Mews room for space, triple share, kitchenette, close parking, or the main house for a view

My husband and I recently stayed for two nights then booked a third night as we were suitably impressed and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Neal and Noel have shown their immense attention to detail in presenting this beautiful historical house. The Mews Style cottages are just lovely and totally sympathetic to the style and era of the house itself. Being a couple who enjoy our food we were appreciative of Noel's knowledge of where we could eat out for dinner and breakfast was an experience in itself. The gardens were lovely and the little touches such as the Port to enjoy as a nightcap just add that extra touch. That, and the gorgeous faces of Lulu and Dougal the resident "Westies", made our experience a very pleasing one. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Neal and Noel.
