“Great accomodation with astonishing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We enjoyed our unit with water views - which made the rainy weather very tolerable to be staying in such lovely surrounds . Plenty to enjoy close by for travellers that love history, coastal environment, chocolate and wineries. The service and facilities were excellent. Darcy on reception was very good with little titbits of information to help our stay during a very rainy and cold week.
We had quality food in the cafe which has a cosy fire in winter.
Didn't get time for the indoor pool but saw it being well used every day
Would definitely recommend and stay again
Thankyou Abbey team

Room Tip: Water views are well worth the upgrade

Went here with hubby for an overnight stay during a drive down south. I had pre booked a studio spa suite and paid in advance so the check in process was quite quick. They also explained how to get to our room and how to access it form the back door where we could park the car right outside our room.

The room itself was very spacious. It had a tv, radio, seating area for two, a small couch, a queen bed, balcony with table for two, corner spa bath and separate shower and plenty of amenities. It also had a kitchenette complete with fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave, tableware and cutlery for two. In other words, the essentials.

In a way the furniture almost seemed a bit too small for the room, if we were sitting in the couch it was very cuddly. I also found the walls a bit naked as there was merely one old reproduction on one wall and the rest seemed a bit naked. The information booklet covered a lot of things but they seemed a bit tired and worn and I were also missing pictures and maps over the premises.

But all and all I have to say that this place was a nice surprise. Way better than expected. The room got warm very quickly with the reverse cycle heater (we stayed during the winter), the spa was just lovely to soak in for hours, the shower had plenty of hot water, nice towels and sheets and I did love the fact that we had our own kitchen and complimentary coffee, tea, sugar and milk so that I could easily make an afternoon cuppa and toast.

Check out process was made very easy for us as they left a letter by the door, just sign and drop off at the reception with the keys and we were done. The only thing I missed was complimentary wifi, I could not find any information about it anywhere.

We would definitely consider this place again if we were going down south, it was a lovely stay.

Had a good experience at Abbey Beach. I think the rooms have been re furnished and the spar room I had was very good. Very clean and the booking in and express book out worked really well. After a day at work and a windy stormy night we ate in the cafe by the pool. Service was a little slow, they said they had mixed up the order, when the food arrived it was hot and very good. The breakfast was also good, we had the bacon egg and tomato toasted sandwich good value and the fillings again were freshly done and really hot. With a Pool and a few steps to the beach what more do you want?

Dear Bluemargt. Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay with us at Abbey Beach Resort. We are pleased to hear you had an enjoyable stay with us.

As a resort we have undertaken a number of large refurbishment projects in the last 18 months so that we are able to continually offer our guests the highest standard in accommodation, so we are pleased to hear that you were able to appreciate the refurbished rooms.
We pride ourselves at Abbey Beach Resort on providing our guests with a daily service, in the belief that not only does it offer a service that sets us apart from other resorts in the region, but also that we can maintain the cleanliness of the resort to the high standard that our guests expect.

We are sorry to hear that you had an issue with the service you received during dining at the resort. We will certainly be showing your comments to the Food and Beverage Manager to address with his staff going forward. Such feedback as yours is invaluable to us in training our staff to the level of service that both resort management and our guests expect. It is pleasing though to hear that you enjoyed the menu on offer. The Head Chef at the resort takes great pride in offering our guests a seasonal menu with many dishes featuring locally produced items, so that we are able to provide our guests a taste of what the South West has to offer.

With our ultimate Beachfront location we are an ideal base for guests looking to relax and we look forward to welcoming you back to the resort once again in the near future.

Yet another visit to the Abbey Beach resort and it did not disappoint. My partner and I had a lovely 3 day stay. The accommodation and facilities were great. The late 5 pm checkout on the Sunday is a bonus. We look forward to returning again and again in the future.

Room Tip: The studio room is great as it has a spa bath, prefer ably South facing so on a clear day you get to...

I have stayed here twice and loved both times. So easy, quiet, relaxing. Great rooms and bathrooms. And with a indoor pool spa and sauna what more could you want. But wait theres more. Set on beautiful grounds and the beach out front. I want to stay here every year :)

We have stayed at Abbey Beach many times in the past and found it clean comfortable and a perfect spot near the beach for walks. When ever we feel like going down south, usually around our wedding anniversary, we head to Busselton and Abbey Beach is always the first and only place book into, we are booked again between Christmas and new year.

Room Tip: Book direct through the Abbey Beach website as you can usually get some good deals.

Dear jomclean51, thank you for your comments about your recent stay at the resort.

We are happy that you were able to have a relaxing holiday in our beachfront location, we are centrally located in the middle of all of the wonderful things you can do in the Southwest. We have direct beach access at the front of the resort to walk along the water and enjoy a sunset or if you are daring at this time of year go for a swim! Busselton’s city centre is only a 7 minute drive, Dunsborough is only 15 and the Margaret River Wine region starts at our door step.

We are also pleased to hear your comments regarding the cleanliness of the resort. As a resort we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our rooms and believe providing our guests with a daily service sets us apart from other resorts in the region. In offering the service we are able to maintain the cleanliness of the resort to the standard that our guests expect.

Thank you once again for your glowing review of your stay and we very much look forward welcoming you back to Abbey Beach again in the near future.

Kind Regards

Our winter break week at Abbey Beach was fantastic despite the amazing winter storm that struck the region. The facilities at the resort kept us entertained and happy despite a day of major storm winds. The food and wine in the cafe was excellent and our accommodation warm, welcoming and exceedingly comfortable. The stormy sea was dramatic, but after the storm I enjoyed a great bike ride to Dunsborough along the newly opened coastal cycle path. What a lovely place to stay!

We are pleased to hear that you loved the resort’s ultimate beachfront location. Being just a stone’s throw from the tranquil waters of Geographe Bay makes us ideal for guests looking to relax on the beach. It is also very pleasing to hear that you enjoyed the many facilities that the resort has on offer. Whether it is our 3 pools including our heated indoor pool, children’s playground or tennis courts and bike hire facility we ensure that our guests never get bored! It is also pleasing to hear that you were able to enjoy the cycle path that runs at the front of the resort from Dunsborough to Busselton. With the resort offering cycle hire it is certainly a popular choice with our guests.

We believe our spacious rooms give our guests the ideal environment to be able to relax & enjoy the surrounds of the resort.
