I chose to stay in Dongara just because I thought the city name sounds very Australian and it was also in a good location from my way from Monkey Mia to Perth. The staff was very friendly and we also decided to eat dinner at their restaurant, which was really good. Bed along with bed lines was very comfy as... More

We stayed on one of the hottest weekends ever. We were there to unwind and were not expecting/wanting a Perth style hotel. The aircon in the room was effective without being too noisy. The beer garden was lovely. The pool was clean and welcome on such a hot day. This is a classic hotel motel in the centre of Dongara... More

Stayed a weekend in 2013 and had room 13, next to the laundry room. The chain was broken when we stayed there and the door would open by itself. (We noticed this after sitting in bed and realised there was a cold air coming in. To our surprised the door open even though we had locked it). Ended up pushing... More

I am not going to join the cacophony of people gushing effusively about the standards here. Sure, the pub food is good and the accommodation has all of the things that get the right star rating (e.g. clock, hairdryer), but at the prices you're paying, this is definitely just on 'average'. Our accommodation had large unlit parts of the room,... More

Unlike most tourism in regional Western Australia which is overpriced and under serviced, this is a gem. Simple, clean, excellent service, straightforward pub and good food. Close to all the amenities, beach, surf, boat, river, fish. No Margaret River posers. A real find.

We only stayed one night but wished we'd stayed longer. Accommodation was lovely. Rooms were nicely decorated, spacious, very clean and well equipped. Hotel food was excellent - had dinner and breakfast there. There is a lovely big swimming pool. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Looking forward to staying there again.

We realised the rooms would be older style motel rooms, however were pleasantly surprised at how nice they were. Very comfortable bed & furnishings. Old style bathroom however no complaints - water hot in shower & pressure good. Staff were very friendly & helpful. Meal in the restaurant was fantastic - great food & good value. Also not a long...

The best way to evaluate a place is when things go wrong. We lost power for about 4 hours. I did not mind at all. Dinner was served by candlelight, and cooked by gas, food was wonderful, water was hot, service was outstanding. Great great great. This place could teach the hotels in Perth a few things about service with... More

This is the second time I have stayed in this motel. The renovations give it that edge. Nice linen, furniture , appliances and crockery etc. left the retro tiles in shower /toilet and this gives it it's old fashioned feel. Extremely comfortable bed. I like the separate little heater. The air con is a bit of a rattler so this... More

We made the mistake of starting off at The Priory, and moved here after one night. We had a two night stop in town. We were pleased to stop here. Here they have good quality pillows, towels and toiletries. Julie was very helpful in giving me extra milk for my cups of tea. We had a nice meal in the... More
