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.

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
