“A great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

We booked for 3 nights but when we arrived at the property we extended our stay to 5 nights.
The apartments are spacious and well equipped. The indoor swimming pool is great and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
The only thing we did not like was that there was a flock of geese that had taken over the outdoor pool. We did not think this was very hygienic, but we used the indoor pool which was fine.
Access to the shore is very convenient and the beach is great for long strolls.
Busselton is about 8 KM away so a car is essential.
WE visited Margaret River wineries which were only a 30 minute drive away, and also went to Mandura, which is worth a visit.
we would happily return to this property when we are next in the area.

Dear Dustymiller 44, Thank you for taking the time to post your review after your stay at Grand Mercure Busselton. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed your stay so much so that you extended for another couple of nights. The duck have become a problem. Please be assured that we have taken steps to address this and to ensure that there has been no change to the cleanliness of the water. We have a private contractor who comes in to clean the pools everyday. This has been increased to twice a day. The local council do conduct independent monthly tests of the water and have not reported any anomalies. Again, we thank you for your review and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Friendly informative staff who were happy to tell us about the area.
We were happy to be leaving at the start of the WA School holidays as it seemed a great location for a family holiday and I expect it would be full. For us it was very quiet.
It was further from Busselton centre than we expected but this was no trouble by car.
Room was very clean and a good size for 2.

We had a great stay at this resort. It's very well set up for families with tennis courts, indoor and out door heated swimming pools and a very short stroll to the beach.

We had a 2 bedroom ground floor unit and found it just what you'd want for a short family stay in Busselton which is a great kick off point for trips into the wineries and all the rest the Margret River region offers.

The outdoor pool becomes home to quite a few of the local ducks late each day and they can make a mess of it but when the much warmer indoor pool is available you're much less likely to be concerned.

There was a little noise from both Mercure customers and people staying in the resort right next door on one night but I think there must have been some overseas sporting event responsible for that.

The few staff we had anything to do with were very pleasant and check in and out was a breeze.

Apart from a mostly functional kitchen in the rooms (suitable pots and pans were a little scarce) there was takeaway food available in the small shopping centre two doors away and in the restaurant at the resort next door.

The laundry in the second bathroom was handy to have and plenty of towels were provided. The television reception wasn't great and was analogue which was surprisingly old school, though I did see a big load of empty boxes for new digital sets on the day we left so I'm confident that problem was being resolved.

This was great for kids and if you can get a deal it's quite well priced for the area.

Stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment for a girls weekend & its a fantastic place. A little out of town but has so much to offer. Comfortable beds & pillows, spacious rooms, clean & comfortable. They have heated & outside pools, jacuzzi, gym, tennis courts & even squash courts! To come here on a family holiday with my teens would be great as so much entertainment for them!

I recently stayed at this establishment and found it quite a good stay and location.
You are half way between Busselton and Dunsborough and of course then not to far from the surf beaches and wine country. As we went during the peak prices were certainly very WA, your paying more in the West than you would for this type of quality elsewhere in Australia. Having said that, they are quite new and well appointed. If you like to swim laps then it does have a decent length pool. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Accomodation was well presented and clean.

Room Tip: If you want to sleep in, ask for a room away from the pool, as in Feb the sun is up early and the po...

We booked 3 nights here just after Easter and used the hotel as a base to explore the region. Decent self-catering apartment; ideal for young families (we have a 3 and 1 year old; great indoor and outdoor pool. Easy access to the beach which is beautiful. The resort is a little way out of town but there is a small shopping centre next door. Not a problem if you have a car though. Would happily stay there again. Good value for money, especially if you keep an eye out for Le Club promotions. Check-in / Check-out service was very professional; had no contact with staff beyond that. It is ideal for exploring northern part of the South-West. Plenty of wonderful vineyards nearby.
