Location is excellent with proximity to the jetty, beach and town. Rooms were a good size with all you need for a stay. Meals at the hotel were very good and the staff were friendly. The only downside is the noise from the hotel at closing time on the Friday night. We had people fighting, yelling, laughing and talking in... More

The 50 of us had a great lunch with very friendly and efficient service. Location could not be better, with a very short walk to the beach and the famous Busselton jetty, with its train ride and underwater world. Several small art galleries and museums also very close by. All our group were thrilled with the experience.

This hotel is in easy walking distance from the caravan park that we were staying in and across the road from the Jetty, the meal was delicious, ( chicken parm) the veggies cooked to perfection, and a good array of salads to choose from. It was lovely to go for a walk along the esplanade to walk off our meal.... More

We dined at the Esplanade Hotel on Friday night after arriving in Busselton for the weekend. The roast beef and seasonal vegetables sounded great at $19.50 each. The bar staff service was efficient and our meals arrived within 20 minutes of arriving which was great. A warm bread roll was provided when we ordered our meal. Sadly that is where... More

WE had lunch there two days ago and were most impressed. When the waitress realized we were seniors she mentioned their Senior's special deal. For $15 we would get a warm bread roll, self-serve salads, a roast beef dinner plus a dessert too. We jumped at it and were most impressed. The roast beef dinner was enormous. I've never seen...

Stayed here over the Busselton Half Ironman and really liked it. We were given a corner renovated motel unit on the first floor. The room had a queen bed, a single bed, microwave, tea and coffee making facilities, microwave, fridge, iron and ironing board and tv. Unfortunately, no hair dryer so bring your own. In terms of toiletries, we were... More
