I loved this little town. After being in Sydney, it was refreshing to be in a small town. The Inn was comfortable. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. There's a bottle shop on site. It looks like all the rooms face the beautiful water. It's outdated, but I liked it, clean comfortable and affordable!

What a little gem in swansea! We were really hoping for a nice relaxed place for the night at a good price and we found it. Beach views from your room, loads of room and very friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend this for any type of traveller.

It's worth the extra $15 a night to get the room with a balcony over looking the water! Beautiful view, very clean and friendly staff. Rooms are dated, beds not so comfy though. But overall, we enjoyed the character of the place.

We are an ageing but dedicated pair of cycle tourers who arrived in Swansea exhausted after a 70km ride from Campbelltown. After our bitter disappointment at the decline of our usual cosy tent site at the Backpackers, we cycled into town to be greeted by much friendlier people at the Motor Inn who gave us three very acceptable choices of...

We stayed just the one night in a budget room. The room was very clean, however very outdated with the colour scheme and layout. Bathroom was probably the smallest one I've been in and awkward. The queen bed was comfortable and location reasonably quiet allowing for a good sleep. Our room was at the back of the building so now...

Room was comfortable and quite. Nice quite town, my husband was ill while we were there and the pharmacist and local doctor were superb, they could not have helped us more. Not the usual holiday review but all in all the human experience made it.

We have stayed here for the last 2 years and thoroughly enjoyed it here. The whole complex is a touch dated but the views are great, the staff fabulous and really helpful, and there's parking for our bikes. We had a BBQ one night and they gave us all the tools we needed and we had a great time. The...

We stayed for two nights in Feb 2017 in a budget queen room for two. The room was clean, however it was awkward as the bathroom sink was also the kitchen sink? Although the shower/bath was big compared to other places we've stayed so that was nice! Our check-in was quick and easy, the staff there are extremely friendly and...

We stayed 3 nights here and this property was clean and comfortable. Good location and lovely views of the sea. Comfortable beds which was nice. Great size bathroom and lovely to have the spa bath as well. The shower recess is quite small and a bit of a pain not having a shelf to put your soap on or other...

Accom is rather limited in Swansea and Coles Bay especially over a busy long weekend. Only booked at last minute with the hotel direct and the phone communication was excellent. Checkin was professional and the managers are extremely helpful with information about eating and touring. We were thinking about doing a cruise on wineglass bay and they pointed out there...
