We had a studio room, and these are the things I loved about this place:
1. lovely big room with a heater and air conditioner. Very clean too.
2. it has a heated pool and an outdoor pool
3. privacy and outdoor space - it's like staying in your own secured residential estate
4. Own secured parking lot
5. Easy to walk out to the beautiful beach - it's just gorgeous!
6. Short drive to margaret river, yet not far from the town amenities
7. Right next to a place that sells yummy and fresh fish and chips! It's perfect to just end the day with a hot fish and chips dinner in the warmth of your spacious room. Plus, hotel guests get discounts at this shop.
8. There's also a small food court and supermarket nearby. Totally convenient!
9. There was a children playroom. Not exactly the cleanest place nor the most well-equipped. But children don't care about that. And we like the thought that they bothered to cater to young children and families.

Things I didn't like too much:
1. they didn't have a baby cot, but they had a portacot with no mattress (or rather the base is too thin and hard to be comfortable for anybody). My advice for them is to invest in a good baby cots, cos' happy babies = happy parents = happy guests.
2. No cafe/ restaurant in the resort itself
3. The bigger units at the back of the resort seem really quiet. I am glad we had a unit close to the reception.
4. The toilets are lovely, but because there's no heater in the toilet, it gets realllllyyyy cold in the toilet!!

I would certainly recommend this place to anybody who wants to visit margaret river.

Room Tip: Get one near the reception area.

My girlfriend and I were pleasantly suprised with our two night stay in September, especially considering we paid just $80 a night. The Studio room was clean and well equiped with a mini kitchen including bar fridge, nice bathroom and large bed with a T.V. We were located close to reception, just opposite the tennis court.

My only problem was the noise coming from an upstairs studio room. The group had their T.V up loud each evening and were generally a rather noise bunch. Anyway, I guess that's no fault of the Hotel, just that the walls were not overly thick. Otherwise the bed was comfortable and it was relatively quiet

I thought eveything else was fantastic value, and having a car it was only a short trip into Busselton City or slightly longer to the Margaret River region. Reception was quick in both check-in and check-out and more than helpful to answer any queries.

Will definitely look for Grand Mercure on my next trip to Busselton!!

The staff were wonderful. Free internet was great as it was the first we had found in over a week.
We couldn't believe how good our room was. It was like a mini house. The bath had a spa! The bathroom was enormous. We also had a separate kitchen area and luggage racks for 2 suitcases. Beds were luxurious and soooo comfy.The resort is gated so you feel really safe.
A nearby restaurant offered 10% discount and yummy meals, especially breakfast.
You can walk through to the beach where we spent some time and it also has a heated indoor pool and outdoor pool/BBQ area. We only stayed 2 nights but wished we had stayed longer.
Would be lovely in summer for a holiday.

Room Tip: Get a back room away from road noise.

Stayed here via APVC membership again and had a two bedroom unit which was large and well presented. Has just been updated and is very nice. Staff very friendly and quick to respond to any issues. Located out of town but direct access to beach which is what we were after. Would stay again.

The room was large, and luxurious. An excellent restaurant was nearby offering a 10% discount. Free internet access was available at reception. The surprise was that it cost less than other inferior rooms that we had encountered on our holiday.
