We have been holidaying at the cottages for many years now. This year the cottages had been renovated and updated. I especially found the quality of the kitchen utensils of a high standard. We had booked in for a period of 9 nights. Loved the peacefulness, the kangaroos, the walks. Not to far from the town and wineries. Can't wait... More

We stayed at Bussell's over a weekend in August. The weather was pretty poor during our visit - cold and rainy with hail. Didn't bother us in the slightest. The accommodation is well built to withstand the cold and the facilities are first class. The place is absolutely spotless, the beds very comfortable indeed and the furnishings excellent. The townsite... More

The moment we drive into the road that leads to the manager's office, we love the place. "Checked in" is speedy as collecting the keys on the notice board from the office. The cottage is comfortable and has what is needed. My only wish is to have a water hose for ease of young child bathing. The pot belly fired... More

Thank you for your kind comments. We do know it's a challenge for our Singaporean guests during the winter months, however we also know that the thrill of the experience outweighs all else. Fire-lighting, kangaroo-watching and experiencing star-filled (dark) skies, so far removed from the Singaporean experience. Thanks again and please tell your friends about us! More

Staying at Bussells Bushland Cottages was one of the highlights of my family's holiday to Western Australia. Upon driving onto the property, my children were mesmerized by the kangaroos on the property. This was my children's first time seeing kangaroos up close and they practically ran out of the car before we arrived on the property. They were excited to... More

We did an online booking for two nights from Singapore to stay at this Cottage . Initially I was a little hesitance cos I thought since we are city dweller and having to go to a foreign land to stay in a place that seems remote, Nevertheless, we went ahead and book it. We were driving in from Albany that... More

Many thanks ROland. I'm delighted to see that you enjoyed our wonderful bush block and cottages. Since taking over ownership in 2001, we've made significant improvements to the cottages and to the property. Much of our expenditure won't be apparent as it's to do with infrastructure, however it's all about keeping the property abreast with community expectations. Thanks again. More

We stayed here last weekend for a girls weekend away. The cottage was cosy and immaculate. We were so impressed with how clean it was. The proprietors were very friendly to deal with and we all said we would definitely stay again. Although it was just out of town it was a perfect balance between being close enough to drive... More

We decided to have our first family getaway at the last minute and Bussells turned out to be the perfect place to do it. It comfortably fit our family of 5 and was really well equipped and clean. My three little ones really enjoyed seeing the kangaroos and went on numerous walks around the property. My 3 yr old loved... More

It was nice to be able to park our car right at the door step. Once u enter the cottage, u will feel how homely it is and despite it being cold, it gives u a warm feeling. The cottage is very well maintained and spotlessly clean. There is instruction manuals to everything in the cottage from fireplace to television.... More

It's terrific to hear you relaxed into our way of life and made the most of your stay. I do know it's a little challenging for those who haven't been exposed to wood fires, but the warmth and atmosphere engendered makes it all worthwhile. A stay at our bushland cottages is a comfortable way of experiencing the Australian way of... More

Our family of 4 stayed at Bussells for the first time just over last weekend and it was fantastic! We wished we could have stayed longer and will definitely plan for that in the near future.

It's great having our international visitors experience a little bit of the Australian way of life. Chopping kindling indeed, the children will have much to reflect on when they go back to school. And having kangaroos lolling around in the bush adds another dimension. It seems to us that children are becoming less connected to nature so a sojourn at... More
