“Great OZ Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Great Oz Weekend, great accommodation, great hospitality, great location! Walking distance to the beach, Busselton town and the famous Busselton jetty. Warm and friendly atmosphere with clean comfortable rooms and a 'GREAT' scrumptious breakfast. The best for a great Aussie weekend!!

We recently made an internet booking to stay three nights on 15,16 and 17 January 2014 and are very pleased that we chose Beds By the Bay from the web after an unsuccessful attempt to make a booking at another establishment that we had patronised several years ago.
On our arrival Beth made us most welcome and guided us over this wonderful guest house and its facilities. We had room 5 that was very comfortable and clean. Mike is an affable host and is an excellent breakfast cook,
We enjoyed relaxing in the spa in the garden as we prefer spas to be in the open air rather than indoors. Having a spar is a great way to relax whilst on holiday.
We highly recommend Beds By the Bay and will always choose it for future short sojourns in Busselton as a very restful alternative to our usual mode of travel for longer journeys by caravan.
Very handy to the trottting track for the Busselton summer

Thank you Beth and Mike. You couldn't have been more helpful. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. The rooms are so comfortable and clean and Mike's breakfasts are superb. We loved Busselton and your hospitality. We will certainly be back again.

We had the great pleasure of spending 6 days at Beds by the Bay in mid-January. It was our first time here and by all accounts our experience was extremely favourable. Mike and Beth are the "Hosts with the Mostess" ..... Both are extremely friendly, informative and helpful when it comes to best advising us on places to visit in the Busselton-Dunsborough Region. The house and our room was very comfortable, clean and tidy. Having access to all facilities was great. Spacious lounge area, great games room with interesting memorabilia, a very large outdoor area including a spa which was a great way to relax at the end of each day. To top it all off, each day starts with THE best breakfast! Choice of cereal, fresh fruit salad every day or you can really fill up on Mike's 'Full Monty' cooked breakfast or Mike's amazing omelette!! Beds by the Bay is in a great location and is walking distance to town, the beach and the famous Busselton Jetty. We look forward to returning next year.

Stayed here for one night when travelling in the area, not booked in advance, we just went to the tourist information centre near the jetty and they did the booking. Good location a few minutes walk from the sea and ten from the jetty. We had a nice room, the only criticism would be the window blind which didn't really give privacy especially as our window was close to the door out to the garden. However, we were given a very warm welcome and were made to feel at home. Breakfast was excellent and Beth gave us lots of useful advice for the rest of our trip.

Thanks for your review, Allan. We love the southwest so we're always keen to promote it! We have noted your comments regarding the window blind and we plan to replace them in all the rooms this year. Hopefully, this will overcome the privacy issue.

My husband and I have travelled a great deal staying in B&Bs all over the world and Busselton Guest House ranks amongst the best. As soon as you step through the front door you feel at home whether you are met by Mike or Beth. We stayed for five nights and when we checked out, Mike asked if we had any suggestions for improvements. We couldn't think of a single thing! The whole place is spotless with very comfortable beds and pillows, lovely linen and quality towels. There is a games room complete with pool table, outdoor spa, pizza oven, barbecue area, beautiful gardens and lots of places to sit and relax outdoors, or indoors in a very comfortable lounge with a massive television. The guest kitchen comes complete with fridge and microwave. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available all day. Breakfast is absolutely delicious, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, cereals, orange juice, apple juice, fresh coffee, toast and croissants as well as a cooked breakfast of your choice with a huge variety of ingredients. Do try one of Mike's amazing omelettes!

Thanks Beth and Mike, we'll be back on our next visit to Busselton.
