“Almost got 100%”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2009

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Palms to celebrate my birthday.
The residence (room) was fine - we were overlooking the pool, which we can thoroughly recommend. If you don't have a pool view, you'll be overlooking either the car park/bottle shop or side road or the main building.
Downstairs there is a kitchen and lounge area plus laundry then stairs take you to the bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The balcony is a pleasant place to sit and have a drink.
Some Foxtel channels are provided on the TV which also has additionally a DVD player.
The bathroom is tiny. We had problems there - we reported the shower on two occasions as the shower head would not stay where it was supposed to stay - it kept falling off the wall bracket. Likewise, the towel rail, as soon as I hung up my towel, it crashed to the floor! Believe it or not, we are not heavy-handed people!
Finally, wireless internet access is advertised on the Royal Palms website and in the residences. It's not a free service, but we were not able to use it as there was no signal at all even though the receptionist stated that it should be!
Overall we had a good stay, but a couple of minor problems prevented an EXCELLENT rating.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2009

It was our first time to Busselton and so we were on the look out for accommodation that was affordable but well presented, clean and in a good location. We happened across this place and the photos online looked nice. The room/townhouse was only $100 a night and so we booked it. How relieved we were when we found that the place looked just like the pictures. It is in the ideal location of Busselton where it has easy access to the main thoroughfare and it is also on the main road heading towards the Cape.

The "room" was like a townhouse in that it had living quarters downstairs and then upstairs you had your bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom was quite large but the bathroom was very small. However, the bathroom was very well furnished and it seems like the place is quite new as all furniture looked new. The kitchen was also very well equiped. The small flat screen tv also had a limited number of Foxtel channels which was good. We also had a sizeable balcony with a table and chairs overlooking the swimming pool area.

There was ample car parking within 10 metres of your doorstep and the reception staff were accommodating of any requests we had.

We had dinner in the resort restaurant and it was great value at $30 per person (if a guest at the resort) and that included 2 courses. Both our meals were very generous in size and tasty.

The only negative about the room was that it had a split system for heating and airconditioning upstairs only and not downstairs and so the lounge area got quite cold.

We would defintely stay at this resort again.
