Beach House at Bayside
Ranked #1 of 18 Albany B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Less than an hour after we arrived at the Beach House at Bayside for our pre-booked two-night stay, my wife and I had revised our travel arrangements to ensure we could stay an extra night. Our two-level suite (No. 7) was very spacious and extremely well furnished with stacks of "extras", not the least of which was the heated towel rails. Access to the communal guest lounge with it's warming wood fire on the three August nights we stayed was also very enjoyable. But what made our stay truly memorable was the service and friendliness provided by our hosts Sally and Craig, both of whom really love their "jobs", which was obvious from everything they did, and of course was manifested in the exceptional service they provided. This included a number of offers (e.g. complimentary lift to a restaurant we were dining at in town) that one would not even dream of asking for. During our welcome, rather than boring us silly like most motel etc. owners do by extolling the virtues of everything that they enjoy doing in their immediate environs, Sally (as if by some sixth sense) quickly identified the comparative narrow fields of activities that my wife and I prefer while on holidays and quickly offered a number of suggestions, all of which were subsequently tried and found to be excellent. Both Craig and Sally are very accomplished in food preparation and the quality of their breakfasts was just another example of their commitment to go the extra yard in the service provided. We rounded out our stay on the final night with dinner, offered as an in-room service, but we readily accepted Sally's offer of having it in the dining room, where we had a pleasurable evening with the whole room just to ourselves, enjoying fine food, fine wine, and intermingled with pleasant and entertaining chats with Craig before we retired to our room for the nightly complimentary port and chocolates. Although Brisbane is a long way from Albany we're already discussing what we'll do the next time we stay at the Beach House at Bayside.

Stayed for two nights for business, from the moment I entered the building it felt better than home!! The extremely warm welcome, warm glowing fire, beautiful little treats of cake and wines, not to mention the array of choices at breakfast!! Presentation and taste were all absolutely Devine!
Sally and Craig are fantastic hosts and the attention to detail outstanding. This is easily the best accommodation in WA by far. These big hotel chains could learn a lot from this family!! Will definitely come back again.

Sally & Craig are extraordinary hosts who ensure your stay goes without a hitch. The two rooms we stayed in (rooms 5 & 6) were beautifully done out and the homemade tart left in the room together with the complimentary local port and chocolate were delicious.
Breakfast was made to order and excellent. My daughter had left her kindle in the room when we checked out to go on the whale watching tour, (Albany whale tours, which merits a special mention for being 10/10), and then Craig met us on the pier afterwards to reunite her with it. They both went beyond the call of duty to ensure are stay was memorable, which it was.
We would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I spent two nights at Beach House at Bayside, arriving just after lunch on a Friday. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a garden view room. Everything about our stay was exceptional. Craig and Sally who own/manage the luxury lodge are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble. They booked a restaurant for us and gave us a list of suggestions on what was available nearby and then even offered to drive us!
Breakfast was amazing with a wide range of stewed fruits, yogurt and muesli, as well as several cereals and a variety of breads. The cooked breakfast was individuallyprepared to your liking, and freshly squeezed orange juice was served to the table. Unlimited perculated coffee and several varieties of tea were available.
Room service was available for an evening meal.
The room was very well appointed. Well stocked Mini bar featuring local wines, complimentary Port, chocolates and sweet treats for afternoon tea were on hand each day.
Thank you Craig and Sally for a lovely week end!

My wife & I have enjoyed the most wonderful weekend at the Beach House, Craig & Sally were the best, with absolutely great hospitality.
The breakfast provided by Craig & Sally each day is the best that I have experienced & then there was the experience of afternoon tea each afternoon & the complimentary Port each evening.
The accomodation was very comfortable & spotlessly clean.
I recommend the Beach House to anyone looking at a holiday in Albany, Craig & Sally will look after you with great suggestions on where to go for things to see & do

Quite possibly the best accommodation in Albany. A return visit for us and we were greeted very warmly by our hosts Sally & Craig. The Beach House is where you can feel totally relaxed and at home. From the beautiful warm lounge room with crackling fire to the evening (or afternoon!!) port and fresh chocolate slice available complimentary in the foyer. All facilities are nigh on perfect. Breakfast is served at a conveniently lazy hour in the beautiful dining room. The food and choices are superb. Careful what you ask for - Craig will get it happily! Nothing is overlooked. Accommodation is suitable for business people and tourists alike. Thanks Sally & Craig - we will be back :)

Room Tip: Upstairs spa rooms are bright and relaxing. Choose ground floor if stairs are a problem. Not suitabl...

Its a wonderful time of year to enjoy time with a book and glass of wine in the guest lounge in front of the crackling fire! We've got a new batch of super orange pumpkin soup ready to go too! It all goes together in this cool crisp weather really!

My husband and I recently got married at The Beach House on 6 July 2013. We booked out the entire B&B together with the 19th Hole Beach House from the Friday night to the Sunday morning for our family group of 18 people, including three young children. We had the wedding in the courtyard and the wedding luncheon in the dining room catered by The Beach House. The whole weekend was wonderful. Craig and Sally could not do enough for us. All our guests had a wonderful time and raved about the accommodation, the fabulous breakfasts and the care and attention from Craig and Sally. As we live in Perth, most of the organising was done by email and telephone and everything went without a hitch thanks to their professionalism and dedication to client satisfaction.

Dear Joy and Tom
Our beautiful little property comes especially alive when filled with friends and family celebrating a special occasion... and it doesn't come much more special that a Wedding! We're so pleased the sun came out for just long enough for your special vows to be shared in the Courtyard and Craig and I just loved sharing the whole weekend with you and your nearest and dearest.
Thank you for chosing The Beach House to be a special part of your memories for ever more and thank you also for sharing your experience here for others.
We hope we can see you again NEXT July for your first Wedding Anniversary.
Warmest wishes to you both for a happy future together.
