After booking a long awaited night away from my children with my partner , we had a lovely evening in the bar at the hotel. Only to be woken up by the cleaners smoking and loud at 6.30 am! This went on for over an hour before I ended up confronting them outside our room, only to be told that... More

We popped in for Sunday lunch and were very pleased. All meals over about $20 included the salad bar. We enjoyed the rump steak, which was juicy, tender and perfectly cooked. It came with chips and a choice of sauces. The value was excellent. We'll definitely come back again on our next trip to Busselton.

Good parking right next to your room .Good evening meal reasonable price. Room had a bit of traffic noise early in the evening, as it backs on to one of the back streets. Nice to have evening walk down to Busselton Pier / Jetty which is directly across from the front entrance to the Hotel.

We stayed in this hotel with a group of friends. We only had one key given to us, you need more than one when 5 stay in an apartment. Also the hotel needs to consider that more than just families stay and you need single beds not all double beds. Clean enough, but not enough space to hang towels to... More

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
