It was our first time to Busselton and so we were on the look out for accommodation that was affordable but well presented, clean and in a good location. We happened across this place and the photos online looked nice. The room/townhouse was only $100 a night and so we booked it. How relieved we were when we found that the place looked just like the pictures. It is in the ideal location of Busselton where it has easy access to the main thoroughfare and it is also on the main road heading towards the Cape.
The "room" was like a townhouse in that it had living quarters downstairs and then upstairs you had your bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom was quite large but the bathroom was very small. However, the bathroom was very well furnished and it seems like the place is quite new as all furniture looked new. The kitchen was also very well equiped. The small flat screen tv also had a limited number of Foxtel channels which was good. We also had a sizeable balcony with a table and chairs overlooking the swimming pool area.
There was ample car parking within 10 metres of your doorstep and the reception staff were accommodating of any requests we had.
We had dinner in the resort restaurant and it was great value at $30 per person (if a guest at the resort) and that included 2 courses. Both our meals were very generous in size and tasty.
The only negative about the room was that it had a split system for heating and airconditioning upstairs only and not downstairs and so the lounge area got quite cold.
We would defintely stay at this resort again.
