This is a good value, clean and bright motel in a very central, but quiet) location, where we recently enjoyed an overnight stay. The decor is modern (including good lighting), the property nicely maintained and the service was friendly and efficient. Great coffee shop nearby for breakfast (Urban Coffee House). Would definitely stay here again if we were passing through.

Stayed at Gale street for a couple of nights when driving from Perth down to Margaret river. Check in was straightforward and the lady on reception was very helpful. The motel is only a couple of hundred yards from the main street so getting around and down to the beach was a breeze. The rooms themselves are basic, and another... More

Gale St Motel has traditional motel rooms and villas. While travelling solo, I ended up in one of the villas which is a self contained apartment (2 bedrooms, living area, kitchen, microwave, stove/oven, washing machine). The villa is well appointed and great for a long stay. The motel is only a 5 minute walk into the Main Street of Busselton... More

It's been 12 months since we have stayed here and I must say it was great to see the hard work that has gone in to make it more modern - great facilities at an awesome price! Close to the shopping centre and to the Oktoberfest which was the purpose of our stay.

This lovely quaint motel is in an excellent location but not too far away from the main highway so visiting the attractions in the area is easy. Our room, for two of us, was small but adequate and I didn't realise there was a kitchenette with basic equipment so it was a bonus. Beds comfy and the reverse cycle air-conditioning... More

This hotel was great. It is walking distance to the shops and beach. Renovated rooms and very clean all round. There is a break out kitchen with fridge, microwave, cutlery, tea/coffee etc. The owner/Manager was amazing! Very good value and we will be back! Parking at your door. We felt safe and comfortable.

Called at last minute for an overnight stay. Reception was very helpful, friendly. Recently renovated motel room was clean, comfortable and warm...once the aircon kicked in! Convenient location, small complex so nice and quiet, didn't notice any noise from other guests. Good value for money. Would use again.
