The hotel was good, but the carpets could do with being replaced, as grease marks all over. The room we had looked over the pool area (number 19) which was two storey accommodation with plenty of room. The staff are very friendly and help is there if you need it.

A nice, tidy and clean place to stay. Bathroom is very small, and bed could do with a little more cushion, otherwise very clean and tidy. Wifi was also not free, something I would expect complementary at $120-$140 p/night.................

We had stayed at this resort the year before so we knew what to expect. We had come into town for a concert that was on and knew the town would book out early so we got this place for a good price. It was a long weekend so all accommodation goes up in price regardless of quality but I... More

We paid $210 for the night (being a very busy night in Busselton due to an event) but I booked this hotel due to the closeness to town. We were staying 2 nights with the second night around $190. Firstly, it was not worth the rate paid. I would expect to pay around $130 for this room. They obviously run... More

Put a please clean room sign on door & went out for the day. They took the sign off. Didn't make the bed or give us any towels. Food was of counter meal quality at restaurant prices & hope you don't want to sleep past sunrise cause the blinds won't block any light. Paid less for a lot better.

Stayed here for a business trip, it is in a excellent location very close to town (pretty far to walk to the jetty) the rooms are ok but a few things that disappointed me were Air conditioner was broken. Toilet and bathroom are tiny. Toilet is upstairs and annoying you have to walk upstairs all the time. Floors were dirty.... More

Hard to find as it is directly behind The Slip Inn hotel and there's no signage calling it Royal Palms Resort. Reception said this was to change soon. Limited security for parking as it is shared with main hotel parking. Very noisy when patrons leaving pub premises. As it's an apartment there was adequate tea/ coffee/ milk & some biscuits....

This place isn't a resort but it doesn't claim to be, it has a bed a bathroom a tv a heater and a kitchen perfect for base camp. We had dinner at the restaurant too. Food was good service was good and great value with a discount offered for staying at the hotel.

I try to stay as close to the centre of Busselton as possible when I am on business so I do prefer to stay here as long as the price is right - which needs to be $120 for 1 night or less. Busselton is expensive to stay at and I prefer the Ibis or others but then they ask... More
