“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2010

Stayed for 3 nights in Albany. Very clean apartment and beautiful bathroom. Friendly owners and good location for town/beach/sightseeing. Also has own designated car parking space.
Enjoyed Albany as a whole with friendly people and lots to see and do in surrounding area.
Must do's - Gap/natural bridge, golfing, beaches, views. Whale world is good but bit overpriced at $25 each.
Would visit albany again and def stay here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2009

We were winging it on our recent WA vacation and arrived in Albany on a Friday night with no reservations. Tourist bureau only had availability at the hotels they represent so we drove down past Middleton Beach which looked like a good location on the map. Found Pelicans and we were lucky they had a room. We stayed two nights, the room was clean and the service good. Took advantage of the laundry service. And the it was only a short walk to Middleton Beach. Beautiful beach and great location for swimming, biking and running. And only a short drive to restaurants in the town. And there is a great little store open from 6 - 6 everyday for coffee, etc. We could have spent another two or three days.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2009

We went down to Albany to escape the heat in Perth - it did not disappoint with temperatures in the low to mid 20s! This was essentially the only place in town that had a room available due to a last minute cancellation so we were extremely lucky to stay in one of their luxury 1 bed apartments for 3 nights.

The apartment was beautifully appointed though it lacked an oven, just having a cooktop and microwave so we were a little limited on what we could cook (seeing as I had planned to make pizzas!!). It was really quite spacious with plenty of storage and full sized fridge.

The bathroom did not have a bath, though it did have an extremely large shower with good water pressure so all OK.

LCD TVs in the the lounge and bedroom with reasonable selection of Foxtel channels.

It is very handy to Middleton beach - you can walk there in 5 mins and there is a nice scenic walk along the coast to the grain silos or another in the opposite direction up to Emu Point (about an hour). You are very close to a public golf course and handy to town by car also. There is a local fish and chip shop along with a cafe and a couple of restaurants closer to the beach.

The only real downfall was that at $180 per night you would expect the room to be serviced daily - but it wasn't. Though i have heard that often holiday chalets are only serviced once or twice per week, usually they do tell you if this is the case. We didn't bother to ask for the room to be serviced as like to keep to ourselves so not sure if they would have done it at no charge.

The owners seemed extremely friendly and looked like a lot of family groups stayed there. The complex is very clean and modern and does have a warm village-like feel to it.

  • Liked — Well appointed luxury in great location
  • Disliked — Not being told that rooms were not serviced daily
