“Best western Albany WA”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

Never realised there would be so much noise. Bedroom ok, bathroom needs huge renovating. Restaurant nice. We went B & B what a joke, you had a choice of cereal or toast and jam. Anything else you had to pay extra. On my walks Round there appeared to be far more peaceful and amicable B & Bs. Won't pick the again .

Room Tip: Cannot say we asked for room with balcony, but were told when we arrived that it would cost extra.

The Best Western Albany motel was a great surprise. Its location is very central and is within walking distance of great shops, cafes and restaurants. The room had a comfortable king size bed, a mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities, a flat screen TV, in house movies, free wifi, and a well appointed separate bathroom with ample good sized towels and toiletries. The motel also offers a selection of home made breads, locally made preserves or cereal with quality coffee or tea. The room was clean and tidy and being on the first floor had a great view of the harbour. The staff at reception were lovely and friendly. It was a very pleasant stay and great value. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have great harbour views.

Albany is a stunning part of Australia. The harbour is stunning and the local forests are beautiful. This hotel is a good base to enjoy all the amazing things the region has to offer, including its lovely restaurants on the main street a block away.

Lovely reception staff who were really helpful, particularly at check-in. City hotels could learn a lot from country hospitality and warmth.
They have a full range of digital TV channels and an unbelievably cheap minibar - when was the last time a can of Coke was $2.00 in a minibar?

Yes, it is a little dated, mainly on the outside and bathrooms. The main part of the rooms however a nicely furnished with modern fittings. The TV was quite good, and the room size much better than many hotels. Towels were lovely and fluffy, and the bathroom well appointed.

Other quick comments:
-Not many rooms would have a good view of the harbour
-I didn't have a chance to enjoy the free breakfast.
-The wi-fi was free (rare treat in Australia), and acceptably fast, but not super fast.
-The signage to the rooms is poor -you need to search for the numbers on the doors.
-There are two car parks -the one higher up the hill fills up fast.

Room Tip: Ask if a king room is available.

This traditional motel is in a good central location - you can walk to anywhere in Albany from here. Like a lot of motels in Australia, the rooms are a little in need of refurbishment, but are comfortable enough. The restaurant also looks a little uninspiring, BUT the food is much better than you would expect. I wasn't looking forward to eating there, but it was convenient so we did. Well they must have a very good chef because the menu was interesting and the quality of food when it came was excellent.

This motel represents good value. Located close to water & town, includes free breakfast of nice toast & condiments. Cooked breakfast available if required. There is also a toaster in room, and clean & tidy if not really modern. Who cares? They also participate in the Flybuys rewards scheme.

Room Tip: Double story. You could request a downstairs room if desired.

The Best Western Albany is a neat and tidy Motel that will cause you no stress. The location is within walking distance of pubs, restaurants and Café. The one thing that was a bit different was that the booking was for a two bedroom place. There is one separate bedroom and the other is the common area, with a small table and chairs and access to the Bathroom. So to gain access to the bathroom in the middle of the night, required going thru the other “bedroom”. This could be an issue if this room is occupied by light sleepers. Otherwise, it is exactly what you expect to get.

AlbanyMotel, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Albany Motel & Apartments, responded to this review, April 15, 2013
Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of our motel.

I believe your review refers to our 2 Bedroom Suite. This room is very popular with families or 2 couples travelling together as it offers a Queen bed in the main room and a Queen and Single or 2 Singles in the secondary room at a good price.

These rooms have a small table, chairs, TV and en-suite off the main rooms and a secondary room with only beds. We also have a 2 Bedroom Apartment where the bedrooms are separate and it is not necessary to walk through one to get to the bathroom.

We are aware of some confusion regarding the layout of this room and will shortly be changing the name to "2 Room Suite". We will also be posting floor plans of the rooms on our website.

We hope this will assist our guests in choosing the right type of accommodation.

All our best with your further travels.

Kind Regards,
Ubik Freeman
General Manager
