Not really a resort but nice for the 1 night i stayed. Found it extremely noisy both external road noise and drunk people noise. Is right next door to a pub so i guess that is to be expected though. Room was comfortable, clean and good value.

Relatively cheap nights stay $130. We had a room overlooking the pool. The place was clean and tidy...mostly (see below) and had everything you needed for a short stay. Kitchen with utensils, small lounge area, bedroom and bathroom upstairs with balcony. As I said, you get what you pay for...not much. Downfalls, squeaky bed (even when not doing anything apart...

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay as we travelled thru Busselton on our way home. We saw the Royal Palms Resort as we drove past and thought it looked good so we would give it a go. Looks can be deceiving. The check in process was fine, the guy who did it for us was... More

We were welcomed by a very pleasant receptionist and secured our pre-booked room with the minimum of fuss. The accommodation is on 2 floors, the ground floor having a decently furnished lounge/ dining area and a well equipped kitchen. Upstairs is a decent bedroom that should have sacrificed a foot or so to improve the width of the bathroom area... More

Situated in the middle of this beautiful town, and very close to the famous wharf and beach. Sadly the bed was rock hard, many things like lights didn't work and the bathroom is very tiny. Staff friendly, food in the bistro is good. While we stayed there we were unable to use the pool. Traffic noise starts early in the... More

In Busselton location is everything, and this plae, though clean and friendly, is quite literally on the wrong side of the tracks. Everyone wants the beach. The apartments here overlook either a cat park or a busy road and car dealership. But for what it is, an adjunct to the core business of a busy family hotel, it provides comfortable,... More

Have stayed here 2 nights, nice apartments but walls could do with a clean/dust. Rooms are quite noisy ours was beside the road and felt like there was no wall between the road and us. Rooms are in need of new blinds that actually fit the windows n block some light, woke up at 5:30am each morning to blinding sunlight.... More

These self contained apartments are great value for a short stay. A very short walk into the centre of Busselton and handy for exploring the surrounding areas and the Margaret River region. It was at the back of the Ship inn pub and a BWS bottle shop however it was not noisy at all. Our room looked over a small... More

We have stayed at Royak Palms before mainly for the location and the self contained facilities. This time we booked for 2 nights for a Saturnday and Sunday planning spending time in Busselton and the surrounding wineries of Margaret River and Dunsborough area. We arrived around 1:00pm hoping to get the room but was told that we would have to... More
