Spent a very enjoyable night at this old school B'nB recently and were not disappointed. Very quiet and very comfortable, not flashy and mod conny but very comfortable. Our host Mike looked after us very well and he cooks a mean breakfast in the morning and a very enjoyable coffee. We had the place to ourselves so were spoilt rotten.... More

Mick was an amazing host and as we tapped his knowledge of the local area, we realised the great depth of knowledge he has of the place. He was willing to share his knowledge which was most helpful to us and expedited our mini mission which we had planned over two days. The B&B is located in a great location,... More

It's the little touches of a place such as this that's makes memories. Mike's warm hospitality is second to none which gives this bnb a 5 star difference. ... not to mention the amazing breakfast spread including the world's best omelettes and a beautiful old Labrador called Diesel who greets you!! We only wish we could of stayed longer....highly recommended... More

Unfortunately only in Busselton for one night as we loved Mike's B&B. It is comfortable and relaxed and has everything you could possibly want. Mike is a perfect host; exuding a natural conviviality that makes you feel genuinely welcome. It is experiences like this that are remembered and contribute to a great holiday. Thank you.

My mother and I stayed here for four nights and loved it. Mike, the owner, was so helpful and his breakfasts were delicious. We just loved this guest house. It has everything that you would ever need including Diesel the Labrador.

We recently spent three nights at the Busselton Guest House, slightly out of season, but this was no problem, even though we had just visited the Kimberley 20 degrees hotter, as Mike provided electric blankets and plenty of heating. Being out of season was great, the weather was good and virtually no traffic on the roads. So many great places... More
