I was pleasantly surprised by the captain Huon. The owners are lovely and really care about their patrons. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bathroom and kitchen are well stocked. I went for an evening meal which was delicious and HUGE. Great value for money all round. Lovely spot and I highly recommend this motel. Just lovely.

We stayed four nights here and it was bliss. I slept like a baby, the view was gorgeous and the kitchen was so well stocked with all the essentials. It is free to do your laundry and they supply washing powder. The meals are absolutely huge and the hosts do an amazing job of where all the secret spots are.... More

Just spent 5 days at the Captain Huon - highly recommend this establishment. Cleanliness and room service was above and beyond. Dinner on New Year's Eve was excellent. Delightful hosts. Good location on overlooking the ocean. Within walking distance to the town centre.

Last minute booking for three men on work duty. Were allocated an apartment each. Very comfortable, self contained. The evening meal was in the on-site restaurant, and this is where the shock came. Two of the three ordered "Filet" the other Fish. Out came a large serve of what was later described as excellent pan fried fish over rice. And... More

This is a solid country motel where I would stay again. It is well located on the beach front at Esperance. The rooms are well equiped with a kitchenette and all appliances. The bed was very comfortable. I did not eat there so i cannot comment on the adjoining restaurant. Apart from a missing remote control for the TV everthing... More

Dropped in after the long drive across Nullarbor. Pleasant greeting from owner Greg who offered me the top front room. I wanted peace and quiet. The motel definitely is 1980s style but rooms have been partly refurbished. Self contained like a mini apartment, rooms have everything to cater for oneself, though a bit crowded with so much in such a... More

We recently went to Esperance on a trip and rented a 1 bedroom unit. Very spacious with a well appointed kitchen, comfortable bed and pillows and everything we needed. The unit was very quiet, and easy to access the town of Esperance. In terms of price, it was much cheaper than some of the other options around. The breakfasts are... More

We recently rented a 2 bedroom apartment for the week and was delighted to find a large, clean and well set out unit. The beds were comfortable, with lots of storage space. The bathroom/laundry was amazing it included a washer, dryer, iron and board, and even included the little things like pegs, washing power and beach towels. The kitchen also... More
