We stayed at the Ningaloo B&B for four nights in May and thoroughly enjoyed Exmouth. But the B&B wasn't quite what I had expected. John, the owner was a lovely gent who was full of helpful information and tips. His partner (whom I suspect may be the one who normally cares for the B&B) was away on holiday.
The place consists a a relatively new slab home, the east half is the owners place and the west have the guests quarters; three rooms to let, a common TV room and the kitchen area. I had read the reviews about the wonderful breakfasts and I guess I expected a hot breakfast each morning, something I have experienced from staying at B&B's in the past, but breaky was cold cereal assortment, yogurts and toasts with all the toppings. There was plenty to eat, just not what I expected. The other grip I had was the room wasn't serviced. We had to find our own extra towels (John did show us the cabinet with them), and empty our own trash. The sand from day one was still on the floor on day 4.
They do have snorkeling gear and sun shades for the guest to use on the outings, and as I said earlier, John was a treasure trove of information.
The location a few kilometers south of town was nice and peaceful. Signage is small and we passed it the first two times. You definitely need a car hire if staying here as the taxi service is pricy.
I would consider staying again. More for the lovely company then anything else.
