“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at the beach house at bayside in a Colonnade Room and thoroughly enjoyed every second. Sally and Craig were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were greeted with a complimentary decanted bottle of local port and chocolates and in the afternoon found afternoon tea waiting in our room. Push bikes are provided and we took advantage of them for an early morning ride on the beach tracks before being spoilt by a most wonderful breakfast in the dining area. We will certainly be staying there again when we next venture to picturesque albany! Staying at the beach house at bayside is totally recommended by us and we thank Sally and Craig for their hospitality.

Dear Kazaandjim
Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Beach House at Bayside for the benefit of other potential guests. We’re thrilled you enjoyed your short stay with us and make great use of the quiet beachside location with bike tracks etc! A great way to cover some extra ground when on limited time.
We really enjoyed your company and look forward to showing of some more of Albany to you should you return into the future.

Actually to be fair I'd probably rate Beach House at three and a half if one could. But the bottom line is it's not a boutique hotel, it's a large B&B in a strange housing estate by the golf course. The guest lounge is small and overlooked by the reception desk, so not a good place to relax, and the Collonades spa rooms , though generally well appointed. would have to be the worst designed room I have ever stayed in. It's one thing - not ours, but some people's - to have the spa in the bedroom but the shower as well open to the bed and the toilet all part of the open area, that's ridiculous.

And it's seriously overpriced compared to other top B&Bs we stayed in around WA.

That said the hospitality is warm and the breakfast excellent, but not my idea of a five star hotel.

Dear Grangeview
We are saddened to hear that you were disappointed with your recent stay with us. We strive to offer a great Albany experience for all our guests and to build relationships so we can anticipate all our guests’ needs.
As well as our Colonnade Rooms we do have rooms with very traditional bathrooms (without spa and accordingly at a lower price), but I am unable to track whether they were an available option on the night/s of your stay. Screens can be added to the Colonnade Rooms for more privacy if required and we are disappointed we were not able to anticipate this issue and make your stay more comfortable.
We take great pride in our service and breakfast and are pleased to hear you found those components enjoyable.
Best regards.

I felt the need to finally write a review of Beach House at Bayside which my husband and I had the pleasure to stY in for three night in July. From the moment you step into the Reception area the wonderful feeling you will have the the whole of your stay begins. We were greeted by Sally who is Keith and Janets daughter and she is such a beautiful lady who makes you think that she has just been waiting for you to arrive. Our room was so beautiful and the afternoon tea of home made cakes was such a treat to come bac to each afternoon after a tiring day of exploring all that Albany has t offer. There are so many things that Keith, Anet and Sally did during our stay but just a few were lending us bikes for us to ride along the beach track(great fun) recommending the best Restuarants to eat, cooking the most fantastic breakfasts each morning, nothing was too much trouble for them. We will definately be back and have told all our friends and family that they must go and stay at Beach House at Bayside as it will not disappoint. FANTASTIC!!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are of equal quality, but if a family they have a separate guest house which would be...

Spent only one night here with friends and our 11 year old son. We had the suite and absolutely perfect for us, our friend had a room in the main house. The owners are extremely warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Very relaxed tea and coffee in the guest lounge room, great recommendation from the owners for dinner in Albany that night. Had one of the best night's sleep, was almost late for the superb breakfast. We will definitely be back for a longer stay next time.

Room Tip: Suite was ideal when travelling with a child.

Dear Travelling BMW
Thank you for taking the time to send your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. We love having the lounge filled with happy people chatting and enjoying time together over a cup of tea and are thrilled you enjoyed your time here with your friends and son.
Sorry it had to be such a quick trip on this occasion but hope that next Whale season you may be able to come for a couple of extra days and get out on the water to watch some Whales!
Best wishes and thanks again

The only thing missing was a view of the coast from our window! We have to agree with the other recent reviews ... Janet and Keith are the perfect hosts, they couldn't do enough to help us.
The room was terrific with just what was needed in facilities and decor. The finishing touches are just right. The location is good with a short walk to the shoreline and the golf course, nice and quiet. The breakfast as part of the price was a pleasant surprise and what a meal! It was superb. Although we were only in Albany for the night, what we saw of the town was great, plenty to see and do.

We have just spent three days at the Beach House at Bayside in Albany.It is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. The owners are charming and ready to assist you in any way that they can. The decor is lovely-Tuscan/French. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfasts are to die for and amongst other things include freshly squeezed orange juice, mixed berry compote, stewed plums and rhubarb. There is also a gourmet cooked breakfast with several alternatives. Cake is delivered to your room every afternoon and there is complimentary port and chocolates in the evening. I would recommend this place to business and holiday travellers.

Having been booked into Beach House by my travel agent, I can't believe my luck in finding this place. They know how to do things just right. You name it and they have perfected it, the rooms, the decor, the equipment, the home comforts, the quiet location, the breakfasts in a beautiful setting, the snacks. I would go so far as to say this is the best accommodation of its type I have ever experienced.
