Reviewed 30 July 2014

This is a lovely hotel with all you need for a stay in Swansea. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and well equipped including a microwave - excellent for the number of takeaway eating options nearby. There are a number of different room options - if you can, take one on the beachside. The morning sunrise, even in winter, was far too beautiful to miss.

Great location. Great value. Clean and friendly. Upgraded to a room with a view because of renovations. Much appreciated. Gorgeous view from room. The fellow was obliging, casual and welcoming. Large room with everything we needed. It was across the road from an IGA express, bonus.

We stayed 1 night in this motel. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The room was on the ground floor with a paved area out the front overlooking the water. Very nice view. Privacy from the neighbours with lattice like fence with plants growing over it. Room was warm with good heating and electric blankets pillows comfortable everything was very clean. Forgot to pack ear plugs- loud talking by a neighbour ( had been drinking) on his paved area on a mobile phone until midnight. Apart from this very quiet and peaceful. Enjoyed our stay. Walking distance to all cafés, restaurants, outdoor gym, golf.

Great Central location of this little town, The Room we had did overlook Oyster Bay, with a Balcony out the front. The Bathroom was adequate and looked to have been renovated recently, The Room was average, the Internet was good and free to guest. The Management was friendly and informative. For the price, you cannot expect the world, but the view is worth the money spent.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Balcony if you can -

Mine was a cheaper room and there was no sea view. The sea view is great but you can see nothing when it becomes dark. The motel is located in the city center of Swansea and the beach is in front of the motel.

- Free Wi-fi with good speed.
- They have a laundry but have not mentioned in their homepage.
- They have heater and electronic blanket (I did not use).
- No drawbacks, no surprise.

Our rooms were standard hotel type but clean and tidy and with a good bed. Owners were very friendly and helpful. We loved our ground floor ocean view. Sad that we couldn't stay longer. Centrally located and easy driving distance to Freycinet National Park and local vineyards.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is on the ground and faces the ocean. Lovely private sitting area outside the roo...

We must of visited on an off night, reading others reviews, because the greeting we received from the reception desk was a bit "Norman Bates" and that was after the reminders we'd received on email hat we had to book in before 8pm.
The room was clean but dated - there's plenty of brown here. The beds were OK but not terribly comfortable.
We did have a view out over the water which was lovely and the sunrise was fantastic.

Room Tip: Take a water view room
