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

Had a Team Dinner at the Esplanade with a group of around 30. First impressions were OK as the premises are very nice. However, the service was similar to being served by front bar staff. Drinks were expensive and fairly limited choice. The meal was nice but that's about it. When we adjourned to the bar for after dinner drinks... More

Walked off the street & booked two nights here. The room was clean & the bed very comfortable to sleep in. Offered me what I was looking for & the price was right. Not many places in Busselton at this price so was well rewarded. I did have someone banged on the door loudly in early hours of the morning... More

Have been to the Esplanade on several occassions now. The food is great, the music is great but can't say much for the service in the bar. Anyone heard of service with a SMILE. A smile is free you know. But you never seem to get that there
