Comfortable place to access hiking tracks.
Comfortable and clean room. Great location for hikers with easy access to state parks and hiking trails ( or tracks, as they are called in Australia)

Timothy, au1 night trip
Swansea Waterloo Inn, Swansea
Hotel was old but clean. Really needs to have aircon for these hot summer days. Only a small 50cm table fan. The bistro was not operating, as it was closed on Thursday and Friday night! Sent the kids over to reception to get more towels, and they asked politely for more towels and the lady said no, the kids didn’t know what to say or do and were embarrassed, the other lady then gave them the towels- poor humour if that’s what is was. Stayed two nights in Swansea which is two nights too long - it has this terrible sewerage smell from the seaweed at the beach. has 19km to Wineglass Bay, but to drive it is 67km so don’t be decieved. Not worth the $175 / night or the star rating.
