We stayed for one night over the Labour Day weekend. The room was spacious and we had an ok view of Albany. The thing I found the most peculiar was booking. I booked online and did not receive a confirmation email so we tried calling the next day but there was no answer. We arrived in Albany and did some... More

We stayed for two nights in a basic room on our way through from Esperance to Margaret River thinking this was a good spot to stay. The room was depressing, old fashioned (60's) and unsuitable and looked like a hostel room. The bathroom was disgraceful. The staff didn't seem at all interested in enquiring if we enjoyed our stay, even... More

I have stayed here a number of times and have been happy to stay each time. It has a great central position in town and handy to restaurants and shopping. When there for a number of nights for work it is great when you can walk everywhere. I will return again shortly.

I had a very pleasant motel room. The rooms are situated behind the reception and dining room areas and so are quiet, and away from any road noise. My room was good sized, very clean and smart, with kettle, toaster & fridge. I had requested and got a ground floor room. My only concern was that the large window had... More

This was our first time staying at this motel and we were pleasantly surprised. It was spacious, clean, and convenient to everything. I like the styling - in years to come it will be 'period' and I'm glad it's a period of decor which is not being forgotten. We stayed in a room with a queen bed and two singles... More

I was a bit dubious about staying here for a number of reasons: 1. it being a 'motel'; 2. the very mixed reviews; and 3. everywhere else seemed to be booked over the Christmas break. We stayed in a superior room for one night, and would happily stay again for a longer period. Booking on-line was painless, as was check-in.... More

We stayed here for two non-consecutive nights during December 2013. The rooms we had were 15 and 44, and there was a world of difference between the two. Room 15 was at the end of a row and so the Wifi was a bit weak and flaky -- eventually, I just made my phone a Wifi hotspot and used that... More

We visited Albany for a night as part of a trip round the south west of WA. We didn't book ahead and stopped at a few hotels before here. Maybe we were unlucky but the Albany hotels we looked at were worn, old fashioned and overpriced. If you want to stay in Albany the good thing about the Dog Rock... More
