Swamp Cottage is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 10.
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 .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The owners are lovely, the extra that they put in, really made everything perfect. Thank you so much Denise. The Christmas tree and decorations, the chocolate santas, the tin of biscuits under the tree. All the information and help that you gave me was fantastic. Perfect location. If you would have us back would love to stay again. Thank you again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully renovated - there is not a single thing missing from this lovely little home. The additional touches by the owner (basic food items, dvd's, books etc) were an excellent unexpected bonus. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We LOVED Swamp cottage!!It was perfectly cleaned, more than adequate amenities, beautifully renovated, great location and every little extra was taken care of. If we ever go back to Launceston we'll stay here. Excellent heating, great laundry and bathroom facilities. Excellent quality and size of TV. Plenty of plates/roasting dishes - everything you need plus more is already there in the kitchen along with a generous breakfast hamper. The best thing was how clean and homely it was. The day we were leaving it felt weird - because it felt like we were leaving home. Also the owner was so friendly and accommodated our little requests with kindness and helpfulness. Thank you so much!!
