“Great place, greatest breakfasts!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

From the moment we stepped through the lobby and were greeted by Peter, Inn the Tuarts Guest Lodge was (to quote the kids we left behind for the weekend) "wicked cool". The surrounds were lovely—our room opened out to starlit skies, and we loved the outdoor patio where we sat and had dinner every night. Just about every detail was seen to, from the spa toiletries to the TWO barbecues available (indoors and out) complete with cutlery, dishes, you name it. And if you're looking for good advice as to where in the Margaret River region to head to, just ask Suzanne—she knows everything.

But the highlight had to be the breakfasts. Order your next-day breakfast by 5pm and it will be waiting for you between 8am and 9.30am the next day. Chef Tammy cooks the best omelette in the world, according to my husband, the skinny-omelette aficionado. I ate my plate clean every morning! The fresh fruit bar was a superb bonus.

There's also a pool, a whirlpool and an infrared sauna (for them aching post-flight bones) which we didn't get to enjoy this time round (not having brought our swimwear). Would recommend this lovely inn to couples looking for a peaceful and enjoyable getaway.

Room Tip: Our room (number 2) was nice and quiet and perfect for 2.

Wow! Great review, greatest reviewers - Thank you so much Threezframe for posting such a sensational and detailed review on Tripadvisor, it too is "wicked cool". Thank you especially for the high praise you heaped on Tammy's great breakfasts, she was really rapt to receive such an accolade. As I have been heard to say in these responses, and elsewhere, we have enjoyed some of our most precious moments in this business with lovely people from Singapore (By the way, I noted that our Federal Government announced today that Singapore e-passport holders would now be allowed privileged express access through Australian airports) So I hope you can help us spread the word amongst people you know in Singapore, about Busselton and this wonderful Margaret River region and of course about Inn the Tuarts! Thank you again, our sincere appreciation for this review, but more importantly for choosing to stay with us. All the very best, Pete and Suzanne

Heel hartelijk bedankt for your lovely review Niall K, very much appreciated. We love hosting visitors from overseas, recently enjoying visitors from Holland (yourself), Finland, Switzerland, Singapore and Malaysia, and the UK not to mention from our own fair land. So pleased that we were able to add to the enjoyment of your holiday into this diverse and fascinating region - we keep discovering new wineries, eateries, beaches, forest areas and other attractions to share. Please tell lots of your Dutch family and friends, we'd love to share our lovely location and region with them, too. All the very best, Suzanne and Pete

We were lucky to stay over the Easter break. Suzanne & Peter are so welcoming and friendly and great with suggestions re restaurants and wineries - which were excellent choices. The breakfast room has a great feel to it and the breakfast was delicious. Our room was lovely and we enjoyed the spa. We both felt re-energised at the end of our four night stay. What a find - we will be coming back and would recommend anyone looking for a restful break - treat yourselves and come and experience the peace and quiet on offer when staying here.

Hi again Denny C56, and I think it was us who were lucky to have such delightful guests as yourselves stay with us, and post such a wonderful review. More than that, given your experience as a traveller and Tripadvisor Senior Contributor, we feel particularly flattered that you rated Inn the Tuarts, our rooms, breakfast, facilities and suggestions and advice so highly. We quite often notice that our guests leave looking and feeling more refreshed, relaxed and as you say re-energised than when they arrived. Which is brilliant, of course. We are very happy that you got so much from your visit, and do really look forward to seeing you again before long. All the best, Pete and Suzanne

We loved every moment of our stay. The place is in the Tuart forest and it's really peaceful and beautiful. The owners Peter and Suzanne are super nice and helpful and they really pay attention to detail in making your stay perfect. The room was clean and beautiful and the bed is really good! The sauna, jacuzzi and pool were a cherry on top, I hadn't even realised they were there when doing the booking! There are BBQ areas for guests to use and we made good use of them. The breakfast is something else! There are several hot brekky options and we stayed long enough to try all of them, impossible to say which one is best. I can highly recommend Inn the Tuarts and will definitely be coming back!

You two were absolutely lovely, Vigorous_urchin! We so much enjoyed our first Finns, and you'll be pleased to know that our therapeutic Infra-red Sauna, is now introduced as being different from a Finnish (not Swedish) sauna. Your review just couldn't be more generous, kind and complimentary and I don't think I can improve on it with any comments of my own, other than to thank you so much for posting it on Tripadvisor, but more importantly for choosing to stay with us in the first place. We do hope you mean what you said that you'll definitely be coming back, as we'd certainly love to catch up with you both again, soon. Kindest regards, Suzanne and Pete

Peter and Suzan... K, Owner at Inn the Tuarts Guest Lodge Busselton, responded to this review, April 30, 2014
Thank you very much for the Feel the Peace and Quiet review you went to the trouble to put up on Tripadvisor albod2014, we are very grateful to you. I won't add anything to all the kind words you've said about the welcome, the pool, sauna and spa and the advice and suggestions of what to see and do, given to you from our hard-won personal experience :-), but will comment on your room suggestion as I think it raises an important point about Inn the Tuarts. Unlike most other accommodation, but in common with some B & B's, Inn the Tuarts was originally a private residence (yes, I'll grant you, a rather large one) and as such every room is different. This enables us to offer different sizes, configurations, price-points and locations within the property. Rooms 4 and 5 inside the large indoor pool area are larger than our three standard rooms, but have courtyards facing in to the pool. Five, like the two studios 7 and 8 has a separate private entry direct out to its car park and an extra large bathroom, whereas 4 has a more modest bathroom, but a separate private space with desk (or room for an extra single bed). So for those reading this and considering staying with us, please see the detailed description of each room on our website under "Guestrooms" or phone us, we're only too happy to assist in tailoring the right room to suit. Many thanks again for your brilliant review. Kind regards, Pete and Suzanne

A perfect review from beautiful guests, our sincere appreciation to you Richdal for posting it. What is especially gratifying to us about it, is that you generously awarded us five dots for everything including value, in spite of your stay at one of the most peak times of the year, Easter. No, don't worry, we aren't about to rush out and put our prices up to this level all the rest of the year! In fact we have kept our promise by maintaining essentially the same room tariffs since we opened in Dec 2009, whilst making countless improvements and in the face of relentlessly increasing costs. Thank you again for your endorsement of this effort. Love your comment - just book it. As an adult retreat, a bit away from the noise and hubbub, yet close enough to be in the Busselton town centre in about 6 or 7 minutes, we have to agree - you won't be disappointed. Cheers and thanks again, we look forward to your return. Suzanne and Pete

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Peter was very warm and welcoming. The breakfast was beautiful and served with a smile and friendly chat. Peter offered suggestions for our days outings and had great recommendations for cafés and wineries. The setting is very peaceful with lots of trees and plenty of kangaroos to be seen in the back paddock. The rooms were clean and pleasant. We definitely recommend and would return to Inn the Tuarts.

We thoroughly enjoyed your review of our very pleasant B & B in the forest, thank you so much katmac1105. Suzanne and I are more than happy that you so enjoyed your stay with us and were made to feel so welcome. We are very proud of our service standards, cleanliness, location and of course our breakfast, which does seem to meet our guests expectations. I have to say this is getting more and more of a challenge given the sorts of reviews lovely people like yourselves post on Tripadvisor, but we'll keep improving. For example tomorrow our omelette will change from mushroom to Spinach, Fetta and Basil, just to add a little extra zing to the menu! Thank you too for the recommendation and for your expected return to Inn the Tuarts - we look forward to it! All the very best from us in beautiful Busselton. Pete and Suzanne
