I love Busselton and surrounds and have been several times. We stayed at the Resort for the first time last weekend. The Hotel was chosen as we were attending a wedding and the reception was held there so we thought it would be convenient not having to drive.
The location was good, being so close to the beach, which was beautiful, but a bit out of town, which may suit some people. The staff were very friendly.
As we were too late to eat in the adjoining restaurant, by the time we got settled into our room, it was a good 5/10 mins drive to find somewhere open and it was only just after 9pm on a Friday night. I have to commend the breakfast staff for a lovely 'Big Breaky' the next day.
We booked a Hotel Studio. It did have a small kitchenette, equipped for 2 but only facility was a microwave and kettle. The room looked very tired, dated and definitely needed an overhaul. The spa bath was high therefore making it difficult to climb in and out of to have a shower, even though there was a hand rail to assist. (Not sure how they can sort that one out.) Also take your own toiletries as there was only a curtesy shampoo body wash etc for 1 on the first night even though there were 2 of us staying 2 nights. We may have got more if we asked, but we were prepared with our own toiletries so didnt bother. It is hard to believe that the towels were not changed every day but I imagine that would be due to 'water saving'. The Hotel does state that the rooms are only serviced every 5 days. 2 days I could handle but 5?? I did notice just before we left, what appeared to be small patches of mould on the bathroom ceiling. The bed was comfy, air cond. worked well and we seemed to have enough room, though we were not there much.
Whilst getting dressed for the wedding, we were disappointed in not having a full length mirror to be able to check our outfits, only the small bathroom mirror and that surprised us considering there are a few weddings held at the restaurant there throughout the year, with people staying and I am sure people would like to see how they look.
I think it would be ok for families in a villa as the facilities for children were good having a games room, pool and close to the beach. Personally I feel that for the price we paid for a 3.1/2 star rating, we could have stayed in a better resort. Stay there again? I don't think so. The are many more Hotels and Resorts to try.
