“Wonderful, quiet, tranquil and luxurious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We stayed for a few nights and the four poster bed was firm and comfy, the showerhead was great and the spa was pure luxury. Lovely big room, tons of storage, and the facilities were all amazing, in this petite little haven in the Tuart Forest. Highly recommended! The cooked breakky is to die for!

Hello freeland and kind regards! Thank you sincerely for your generous and positive review, we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are especially pleased that you found the bed comfortable and the breakfast so good. At times we have struggled to fit into the right accommodation category - are we a Mini -Resort? a Guest House? A Lodge? or a Bed and Breakfast? Perhaps it doesn't really matter, as your review certainly reinforces the latter category, but I particularly love your "petite little haven in the Tuart Forest" I think that says it all so well!
Thank you again,
Enjoy,
Suzanne and Pete

We firstly would like to say thank you so much to Peter and Suzanne for our experience in Busselton.
The room was fantastic, the bed was amazingly comfortable and the view was stunning.
We went for breakfast on our first morning and was happily surprised :) the breakfast was very filling and still Suzanne and Peter offered us more!!!! We were then about to go back to our room when Suzanne asked what we was upto that day, when we said we was off to sightsee and wasn't too sure where we was heading, Suzanne asked if we wanted a few pointers. When we said yes she went and got a map and started to help us plan the next two days, this was amazing for us and we feel we got more out of the local area than if we had planned our own days.
After getting a little sick I asked for help and they helped me out so much which I still am very grateful for.
I have to say that this family run business is absolutely fantastic, the best we have ever stayed in and we both travel world wide, from small hostels through to the biggest hotels in the biggest cities. We have already recommended this lovely place to some of our friends who are heading to Busselton and we have already spoken about heading this way in the summer and we will be staying here again.
Thank you Peter and Suzanne, we wish you all the success in the future and hope to see you soon :)

What can I say Louann82? I think yours is the best review we've ever received! A huge big thank you from both of us! Yes, Suzanne does love to tell people where to go...and she's good at it! We work very hard getting out as often as we can (someone has to do it!) to try out different beaches, places to eat, taste wine and beer, walk, sightsee, tour, and so on, so we are up to date with the best places to send our lovely guests, like you. As she probably said we've recently enjoyed the new Cheeky Monkey on Caves road which has a range of beers, cider and Killerby's wines accompanied by excellent and very reasonably-priced food; Silk Road with a fabulous range of silk products made in Cambodia from silkworms grown on the Harman's Mill Rd property, and lastly Gabriel Chocolate who really make chocolate from Cocoa beans sourced worldwide - to name just a few. Another snippet to entice you back during the spring, is Legend Charters started Whale Watch tours from Port Geographe -just around the corner, today. We're planning to try out Will's Domain tomorrow, which we've heard good things about.
We trust that the medical issue you were still suffering from whilst you were here has healed quickly and that you're feeling much better.
Kindest regards from Pete and Suzanne

I took my 85 year old mother here for a weekend break and what a wonderful place, the owners made us feel so welcome and could'nt do enough for us. The place is very clean and lots of little extra's that you dont get anywhere, the breakfast was to die for and I cant say enough about this lovely place.

Hello again, Mary C and many thanks for your kind and generous review. We are so pleased that both of you enjoyed it so much and that we were able to meet your expectations successfully. We continue to work at improving this place and the facilities and services we offer, so that others like you can share this precious little corner of unique Tuart forest. The message is starting to filter through to folks that not only is this a peaceful, relaxing place to stay but that it is so close and convenient to much of what the Busselton and Margaret River region has to offer, so its worth spending a day or so extra. We've also had quite a number of guests venture out into the Ferguson Valley, (part of the Geographe Wine region) which is also only a little more than half an hour from here. Again, thank you for your great review and we hope to see you again before too long.
Cheers,
Suzanne and Pete

Homey and tidy place with lots of privacy! Large screen TV and DVD player plus free rental of DVDs. Plenty of towels and toiletries! Really clean room and nice size spa. The absolute lovely breakfast is unbelievably as good as those home cooked by your grandmother! Really worth every dollar you spent on.

Terrific NinaS, thank you so much for your great review of Inn the Tuarts and our personalised service in particular. Whilst we are the first to acknowledge that big resorts have plenty to offer by way of facilities, you can sometimes feel like just one of the hundreds of people staying there. The new title for our type of property is 'hosted accommodation' where we, your hosts, are able to add a personal touch of service and make you feel at home. Many of our guests make comments to us like: this is home away from home, or it feels like their own place down south etc, and come back again and again - just like old friends. We love it, and hope to see you here again, too! Thanks again. Suz and Pete.

Hey Gordonp35 we have to agree that this is a very good holiday spot. Having travelled around quite a bit (I was in the travel industry for nearly 20 years) I know for sure that there just aren't many better places on this earth to match the diversity and interest of this special region. Thank you kindly for such a positive review, we are very happy indeed to receive it. All the best,

We stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our Anniversary and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. We love the South West of WA and this is a great place to explore from as it's close to loads of vineyards and great for day trips out. We had a very relaxing stay and loved sitting around the lovely log fire of an evening sipping wine. We even saw the resident Kangaroos! If you like a cooked breakfast (and who doesn't) you'll certainly get a good one here. We would definitely stay again.

Kind regards Matthew L for your lovely review. We love the kangaroos too, and enjoy a family group who seem to live mostly on our 9 acres. Its great to see the Joeys grow and later become mummy roos themselves. Thank you, too for posting the pictures of the outlook under the tall Tuart trees. We often remind ourselves how lucky we are to live in such a special place and to be able to share it with so many wonderful guests. Thank you again for your review, its much appreciated.

We stayed here when we visited my sister in Perth and she booked this as my birthday present. She picked it due to it being no1 on trip advisor. I'm very glad she did! Beautiful room (we had a free upgrade) breathtaking surroundings and very friendly hosts, nothing too much trouble. We will revisit when we come back to oz and we tell all our friends!

Many grateful thanks to you hannahcharl for such a complimentary review. Nice birthday present! It is a real treat for us to get such positive feedback, especially when guests like yourself are from the UK or other overseas countries, as you have most likely experienced a wider range of similar properties to ours, so its particularly pleasing to be compared in such company. Thank you again. Like you we are also big fans of Tripadvisor, using it regularly to pick restaurants and accommodation on a recent trip to Indonesia. We weren't disappointed, in fact usually delighted with where we directed to. All the best, we'd certainly enjoy seeing you again when next you visit Oz. Cheers!
