We could not be any happier with our stay. Booked over the Internet a year in advance to find we didn't need to pay a deposit to secure our booking. On arrival we were told to just check in and relax and could take care of the bill when we left. We arrived by 12pm and the wonderful reception staff... More

Perfect location across from the waterfront and within walking distance to the town. Service friendly and professional. Motel room of the highest quality. Very clean and tidy. Staff provided useful information on Esperance on arrival. Would recommend this motel to all.

This hotel is just across the road from the beach. There is a full kitchen in each room so you can self cater with saucepans and other cooking utensils supplied. Off street parking is available. Free wifi and good TV reception. Pleasant host and a good restaurant is available. BUT the meals are very large albeit tasty. We would stay... More

This hotel is 1st class, ideally situated and the owner Greg was very friendly. The apartments were all you could want, every detail had been thought out for the traveller, also spotlessly clean. Would definitely recommend the captain Huan and hope one day to revisit. Brenda and Gordon from Scotland

Right opposite the waterfront, the hotel is very well located in this beautiful town. The hotel itself is fine, not flash, but clean, quiet and comfortable. Remember to close the blinds because it gets light at 430 am at this time of year in Esperance! The manager was very friendly and helpful, the restaurant menu is fine, but the servings... More

This place remains at the top of my "out of home " experiences. I've stayed in numerous high end resorts and large hotels over the last several years and none match the care and hospitality you will receive in this place. It truely is a home away from home. Plain, simple with an old decor that reminds you of Christmas... More

All you need from a motel. Nice and close to the esplanade and The Captain gave great recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Ask for room 10 for the best view of the beach. Only thing to consider is road noise which may bother light sleepers.

First of all, if you like a nice tidy clean place to stay then this is it. We spent a lot of time searching Esperance for accommodation following the advice of the info centre and got nowhere. Theres a lot of average accommodation out there for very expensive prices. This place while a basic two bedroom, has everything provided. It... More

Most places that we had originally considered were booked out and another hotelier suggested Captains. I was initially taken aback by all the doily covers on the lounges but this was one of the most comfortable stays of our trip. The self contained room was very spacious and very clean. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. We could use... More

Very easy booking directly with Nikki! We were arriving after the reception hours and the keys were arranged for us to pick up comfortably, everything well explained. And we got the room with the best view, number 10. (Haha, I guess from now on everyone will request for this one.) Very good location right on the Esplanade, the ocean is... More
