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

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
