Heritage Resort Shark Bay
Ranked #2 of 4 Denham B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We stayed for 4 nights on a deal and thought it was great. We had an oceanview room which was very spacious and clean. The room had a table and chairs and a small balcony with a couple of chairs as well. Cooked breakfast was included but there is no choice here, you get whatever is on for that day, bacon, a variety of eggs and maybe another side. There is a also a small selection of cereal and fruit and toast. While I wouldn't call it a resort, it was comfortable and we would stay there again.

I stayed with a friend for three nights last week. The room we had - an ocean view - was clean and very comfortable. The beds had nice linen and decent pillows, which was a nice change. It was a good size with a two seat sofa that looked like it could pull out to a bed and two small chairs and a table. Good for writing postcards or having a read. There was a good size closet and a nice bench to put your cases on. The bathroom was pretty basic - small vanity and only a shower. It was clean and they provided pleanty of soaps and shampoos. There was a bar fridge where you could keep drinks. The air con worked well.
The pool area was a bit run down. It wouldn't take much to update the little garden beds and give it a genral tidy up. This would do wonders for its appeal.
We had the fully cooked breakfast which was very odd. You got two fried eggs a strip of bacon and a cooked tomato but none of this was mentioned before it arrived. I have never not been asked how I like my eggs or what accompiaments I would like with them. The lady serving was freindly but would have saved herself a bit of work by asking a couple of questions. The Continental breakfast was a choice of four cereals , canned peaches, yogurt and toast.
In all the hotel was probably a bit better than the averge ones up in the North of WA but on an International standard many would be disappointed.

A group of friends stayed so we had a wide spectrum of rooms available. All were the same and one of the rooms' air-conditioning broke down (no reimbursement, just an old portable aircon was given many hours later). Everything in the rooms were old, musty, saw cockroaches,had noisy air-con, - just very dated. Would not have been so harsh if it weren't for the steep prices. Pool water was murky. I'm sure the cleaners did their best but really - this place needs an upgrade. Or at least charge acceptable rates for what it is worth.

Room Tip: There is no hope.

The room was large and clean, and for such a remote town it was better than others I have experienced. The bed was comfy and room clean. A handful of cable TV channels are offered.
On check in I was offered a room which had a strong cleaning chemical smell. They changed the room for me and gave me a bottle of red wine as an apology. My room also had a small balcony.

Meal was very nice and far better than I had experienced in Geraldton, Carnarvon or other WA towns. Breakfast was ok, but a bit basic. Both were not cheap.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

I will stay here again next time and would recommend the place to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view

Not too many choices in the small town of Denham, so we chose the Heritage "Resort" because of its Ocean Front location. Fair to say the "Resort" is clean and the staff we encountered were courteous. As for the room we had, the decor was very tired and overdue for a refresh. For example, the shower had a rather tired plastic / faux fabric curtain which did not stop a lot of water from splashing out onto the bathroom floor, the loo had a loose seat and the bathroom tiles were a very dated green number. The big plasma TV was almost a bonus, but spoiled by the poor reception. The sofa in our room was one of those things that converted into a bed and was the most uncomfortable sofa we have ever encountered in a "Resort" or anywhere else for that matter. Seriously, it was like sitting on a row of steel bars with fabric draped over them. The most annoying problem with our room, however, was the noise from the plant room near the pool. Whatever it is in there drones all through the night. Like another reviewer, we also experienced the door slamming, thankfully it did not go on all night though. In our opinion, The Heritage "Resort" gets a big tick for location, but sadly. that's where it ended for us.

Room Tip: Give any rooms near the pool a miss.

THIS IS DEFINATELY NOT A RESORT. Unhelpful staff - except one lovely lady who seemed to be the all rounder :) Mould on curtains, broken toilet, dirty pool, terrible laundry facility, horrible over priced food - and they do not allow you to cook in your room, bad television reception and in house movies with the sound intermittent. The next time i go there with my children I will book into the caravan park - visited some friends in a challet (for half the price) and it was nicer than our waterfront room! And at least they don't have to hear doors slamming all day and night!

Once again headed up to Denham for our annual trip, we stay at the Heritage every year as the rooms are great and the staff are friendly. Highly recommended as there are rooms available for all budgets, Ocean Front rooms are fantastic. Food is also great, and you really cannot but a value on the view watching the sunset whilst eating dinner. Best accommodation in Denham.
