Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I checked in at the bar and was pleasantly surprised upon entering my room. Everything was fresh and clean and well contained. This place has everything including a washer, dryer, fold out bed, fridge, stove, balcony, iron… everything you could need! Once I settled in I started feeling everything was cheap. Maybe flat pack furniture, uncomfy lounge, cheap mattress, thin towels, tiny bathroom, crappy iron, leaking toilet, blah blah blah. Also the place is on 2 levels, bed and bathroom upstairs. Ok so before I sound too fussy…. It’s value for money. Car is parked right outside. Pub and Dan Murphys next door, short walk to the Main Street. Great for a casual stop but guys if you’re after a romantic location there’s other places 👍

Fantastic stay! Very clean accommodation and rooms are well equipped. The pool area is nice and staff are polite and friendly. Bottle shop next door is a bonus and it’s a short walk to the main shops. Enjoyed our time there and would stay again!

Room was very clean. Bed very comfortable Was a two story with living area downstairs . Had a TV downstairs and well as a large TV in front of the bed. Bedroom had an aircon . One toilet and it was upstairs. Slightly noisy with the traffic, as we were on the highwayside. But we had to be up and going anyway.

Bed was very uncomfortable. Heating downstairs didn't work. Stairs were hard to navigate. Bathroom very small. Definitely will not stay here again and do not recommend it too anyone. Plenty of other places to stay that are better than here.

First point, it was a little hard to find the reception as it's inside the pub, but never mind, got there in the end. Rooms are of a good standard, nice and spacious, good facilities/amenities. It is a little weird how tiny the bathroom is considering the bedroom is large and the closet is definitely larger than you need in short-stay accommodation ... but it was clean and modern. King size bed was comfortable. Location is handy for getting around town but not exactly picturesque. I was visiting for work so that was fine. Reading reviews before I booked, I would not book for a Fri/Sat night but for mid-week there was not much noise from the pub/carpark. Road was a little loud at times but nothing awful (and again, I wasn't having a relaxing vacation sleep-in). Would stay again for work but don't think I'd choose it for a family vacation.

This hotel is okay. The rooms/appartments are spacious, which is a great thing. You have a couch, tv, table to eat, a good kitchenette and an upstairs where the bedroom and bathroom are located. Also the staff was friendly when checking in. The location within Busselton is also good, with everything around you need close by. Points of attention is that the shower and bathroom are small. The shower itself isn’t very nice, but will do for a couple of nights. In general the rooms are clean, but when checking double, you can see the rooms are not thoroughly cleaned. Additionally, the hotel is located along a busy road though, so you can expect some noise if you are sleeping on that side of the hotel.

The hotel backs onto the worst carpark in Australia with language and behaviour worse than a Jerry Springer show.. the pub had a wedding reception that night and the quests stayed at the hotel Absolutel foul mouthed gutter trash Very dissatisfied and way over priced 290 dollars for Saturday night Oh And yes its the smallest bathroom ever

Ample space for two, in this one bed two story apartment with kitchen & laundry Clean with few knocks here & there. Really nice bed but pillows poor, linen was fresh & quite new Good location 500m to town, 1km to the jetty There is a pub next door but didn't use it. Likewise there is a poo, but it wax closed, I assume covid reasons , but it was cold so wouldn't have used it.
