Swamp Cottage is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic place to stay It was such a great place to stay. It was beautifully decorated and very clean. There are so many thoughtful little things that make your stay enjoyable. The owner goes out her way to make things comfortable. From walking in on a cold winters days to find the place warmed by the central heating, to breakfast supplies, to DVDs, books and games to keep the kids amused. Definitely recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Position Swamp Cottage is just amazing. The position is fabulous, a 2 minute walk to Aurora Stadium, the Tassie home of the Hawks, a 10 minute walk to the heart of Launceston and the Seaport area. The house itself is beautifully furnished and has everything you could possible imagine. The wonderful host even put some breakfast goodies in for us as we were arriving late. What an absolute gem. The place WILL NOT disappoint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional value! This is a secret gem in Launceston. Although not regarded to be a tourist location, the location of this beautifully appointed home in Invermay is ideal. It is just across the road from Aurora Stadium for die-hard Hawthorn fans, 5 mins walk from the wonderful Queen Vic Museum and Tram sheds + School of Architecture and is only 10 minutes walk to the city centre and parking is a breeze. A warm, well appointed, very well priced and inviting home, 5 stars + from me - will be staying there again with my family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staying here was a lovely experience. The property is even better than appears on the site, with al the big necessities like comfortable beds and good heating, and all the little things that make a stay especially comfortable like quality linen and well equipped kitchen. Dealing with the owner for keys etc., was a breeze too. Would wholeheartedly recommend .
