Mike and Lorraine who run this BnB are such lovely people. We came to spend the night in Busselton and this little place is perfect. It is a 10-minute walk into the center of town, 10 mins to the beach. The rooms were all clean, well looked after and so comfortable to stay. My favourite part is you get breakfast...

We needed to book a quick overnight in Busselton to do some work on our property there. There was limited availability, and little did we know that the reason was a triathlon that weekend. We bumped up our price point a little bit, and booked the last available room at the Observatory, and were very pleased we did. The main...

Very friendly and inviting environment. Impressed with the attention to detail. Great variety of breakfast selections. Located within walking distance of the Main Street and the Busselton jetty precinct. We will be back.

Accommodation was first class very clean and very close to town (walking distance). Mike & Lorraine were very friendly and knowledgeable about tours and cafes and restaurants in town. I would highly recommend staying in this well presentedd B&B.

Rare do I give a five star review but this stay deserved it. It was clear that Mike and Lorraine had listened to the views and suggestions of previous travellers that they had refined their lovely guest house to reflect those needs. Our room was well apportioned and top spec. The way they present the self service breakfast was novel...

This was our first stay ever in a B&B, and actually our first time staying in Busselton 'proper' - we normally stay in one of the resorts or holidays parks along Geographe Bay. This particular visit we needed somewhere within walking distance to town and this was just perfect. The twin share room was very clean and well equipped, and...

Our first time on the West Coast. We just wanted somewhere for 2 nights. We would like to have stayed longer but had a plane to catch. The owners made us feel very welcome and keep an immaculate B&B. We had a really lovely time.

Fantastic lay out. Outdoor and indoor space. Immaculately clean. Great breaky spread. So close to beach and great restaurants. The owners were very helpful and their presence and input was well received. Fantastic value for money. Owner said ring property directly and stay would be cheaper.
