“amazing swan-see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

lovely and friendly staff especially at the front desk, welcomed immediately so need to wait around. Had my second thoughts when driving in as I don't stay at motels very often but we stayed here for the night and no regrets!!! The view from our room on the second level was amazing especially for the price we payed. The location was extremely close to all the restaurants in Swansea.
I would recommend staying at Swansea motor in instead of paying ridiculous amounts for other motels and and hotels located at the national park - you probably get a better view here and for a better price!

Perfect little motor inn on the main street. We stayed here for access to the Freycinet national park. The manager was extremely helpful with local knowledge & room was very clean & tidy. Ample parking onsite and close to all amenities of Swansea.

I would have to say that this was the stay of my trip to Australia, the view was something that I would love to wake to every morning. the staff was outstanding, I was greeted on arrival by Joanna who after a nightmare drive, I hit a Wallaby not what you want to do when visiting Australia. Joanna greeted us with a huge smile which made our day a little brighter, we where shown to our rooms which has views that you dream of. The room was comfortable with a microwave and everything you needed to stay a few days. The hotel is a little older but well kept. We had some great places to try out Australian foods around town. we saw Dolphins and a seal sitting in the sun on the rocks around from the motel. We took a drive to see the fairy penguins. The Australian wildlife is fantastic around this area, you are woken by the sound of birds not traffic.

Room Tip: Book the ocean room and stay a few days, you do not realise how many things you can drive to until y...

We had stayed here several years ago and enjoyed it, so tried it again. It didn't disappoint.

Opted for a waterview upstairs room $110, downstairs was a bit cheaper plus there are rooms that don't have a view at the back.

It is an old style motel but had a large room with table and chairs on the verandah where it very pleasant to sit with a drink and watch the birds. We had the most northerly upstairs room 103 and I feel you may get a slightly wider view from one of the rooms a little further south.

Stayed one night in cold and rainy conditions the room was warm roomy and affordable. We had the bay view side but only had cloud and rain for views next time in weather like that I would get the cheaper room as it had a bath much nicer on rainy days in a bath as you are stuck inside
Would have stayed longer if weather was nicer.town is small and doesn't offer much for entertainment on wet days.would stay here again but I would leave it till summer months.not a winter destination at all.

The service started with our greeting, warm & friendly. The room was very clean, comfortable and a great view of Great Oyster Bay. Local knowledge was outstanding. We'll stay again! If you are looking for somewhere to stay on a budget the ocean view rooms are pretty hard to go past.

We stayed here for one night but wished we had longer to stay!!! The ensuite double room was had excellent facilities; t.v, fridge, kettle, toaster, iron, couch, patio and the most spectacular views of the sea. Truly fantastic area to stay for Wineglass Bay. The staff were lovely and very helpful. For 120 dollars a night it was a steal!!! Made our trip
