“Cosy and comfortable”
Reviewed November 25, 2008

We stayed at this hotel in Nov 07 in a standard room, so this time we thought we would try out one of the deluxe rooms. We got a seperate little chalet which we had to drive to from the front check in. It was quiet and not too busy. The bed was comfortable, and the facilities were excellent.

One downside in the room was the positioning of the tv, only one person lying on the bed could see it properly. We were very glad there was a sticker on the shower screen advising the best way to get the hot water going at a good rate. Annoyed that the alarm clock was on and went off at midnight.

Nothing exceptionally outstanding about this place, but it is good value and good location. One downside was breakfast. The normal breakfast room was being renovated so we had to eat in the restaurant. It seemed like there was only one girl working there, and the service was very very very slow. But they didn't mind us checking out 15 minutes late.

Would we stay here again next time? Of course. Unless we could find a better deal elsewhere.

  • Liked — Location and value for money.
  • Disliked — Breakfast and alarm clock going off in the middle of the night.

We stayed here for three nights whilst attending the Ironman Challenge. We could not find another room in Bussleton, so had no choice. We had a 'deluxe' room and the rate was equivalent to about £50 per night. The room was motel style but on the first floor. The carpet was filthy, and covered in stains. There were stains on the ceiling and on the bedside lampshades. The bed was old and sagging, and bedlinen consisted of sheets and a cheap synthetic duvet with no cover. They provide two wine glasses, two half pint beer mugs, two knives, two teaspoons and two mugs. Together with a toaster and kettle, its just about enough to make a piece of toast and a cup of coffee. Room service arrived mid afternoon and forgot to empty the bin in the bathroom. They certainly don't do washing up! The bathroom was adequate, with shampoo and conditioner suplied. Four channels on the tv were all sport! Grounds were very well maintained, and the indoor and outdoor pool seemed well kept. However, overall, this place needs a lot of money spending on it. Its in a wonderful location, but you leave feeling grubby.

  • Liked — Grounds and location
  • Disliked — Dirty carpets and stains on everything.

Wow! The photos on trip advisor and the hotel’s website are true! The resort adjoins a stunning beach which was nearly deserted during our stay. The accommodation while rather tired (studio villa) was clean, large and well equipped. Reception staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our stay was not long enough to make use of the other resort facilities; however there seemed to be plenty of activities available for families.

Overall highly recommended and once the accommodation is refurbished this resort will be outstanding.

Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2005. Rooms were very spacious and reasonably clean. Only gripe I had was that the room's back door could not be bolted (the bolt was missing). Quite comfortable stay otherwise. Heard some other tourists complain about dirty bathrooms, but that didn't happen to me.

Room service is also very expensive (by my standards anyway), you'll be better off ordering pizza (which I did).

Service staff was excellent and extremely helpful. Free parking is available. Also, if you go during winter e-mail the hotel for an excellent rate. For the price, I would probably stay here again.

Geographe Bay is a very nice resort, especially for families. My family (2 adults, 3 children) stayed at thr resort for 7 nights in January 2004. We had another 3 people over the week. We stayed in a 3 Bedroom villa, and at $360 night, I would say it should be worth $275-300 max for the size of it. It only had a living room/kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 3 bedrooms. It was a bit small for the cost (about 100 sqm) but it satisfied us.

The service was absolutely excellent. With the maids they did a fantastic job by making the beds, changing the towels etc. It was 5/5. The front staff were friendly, helpful and knowladgeable about the area.

The swimming pools were ok. The indoor one was fine but a bit warm for 40 degree celcius heat but the outdoor pool was not useable as there were many mosquitoes and we were scared foor any diseases.

The tennis courts were great, however you must book early because sometimes they double book and ask them to tell you the specific court number as there can be an argument with other guests saying they booked this court (e.g. 1). This is because the three courts are not he same surface (one hard and two grass) and we all like one particular surface more than the rest.

The sports centre was just starting to be built and probably be ready by now and it sounds very good.

Overall it was a great resort and if you want to know any further information just email me.
