Great food at the Espi everytime we go there, there is a counter lunch menu and great beer garden to eat in and a more formal restaurant inside with salad bar, great selection and even better steaks. Winner in my book

The downside was the bistro, I ordered a steak with pepper sauce and received a cold steak with (at best) a lukewarm gravy that had no connection to... More

We had accommodation elsewhere but called in every day while in town for drinks/food.Next time in Busselton we will stay at the Esplanade. The bars are not the boring fake style that happens when larger companies purchase hotels and bars. Other than ensuring maintenance is kept up to date I wouldn't change much at all. Thank you to the staff... More
