My family and I stayed here for 3 nights in a 1 bedroom unit. While the youthful staff was friendly and helpful the unit was disappointing. The carpet was stained and dirty. The walls going up the stairs were marked and dirty. The bathroom was almost too small to turn around in. When you bend over to brush your teeth,... More

The rooms are great, the bed is deliciously comfortable and hard to get out of because of that. The living area is downstairs and the bedroom and bathroom are upstairs. There is a nice little balcony off upstairs but it was too cold to sit there. Very comfortable, room service actually took place which is unusual in a two night... More

My Girlfriend and I booked a room here and stayed overnight . Fantastic easy check in.. Apartment room was great. Nice and clean, anything you wanted in a self-contained room was there for you. Bathroom was good, my girlfriend and I are not obese, so we could easily fit in there when using the toilet. Towells were good size. Extra... More

Had a one night stay on a business trip and will be back. Everything you could need from a little kitchenette to a washing machine all supplied in the room for those wanting to stay a little longer. Pricing was great but could imagine you would pay more on weekends and during summer. Overall very comfy and will stay here... More

Myself and my partner visited this "Resort" recently for a birthday weekend away. When we arrived they had gotten our booking wrong and, after some checking and rechecking, we managed to sort it out, we thought. We were informed that they would honour the original price quoted as it was their mistake and the girl on reception remarked on what... More

Backing on to the newly renovated Ship Inn, Royal Palms Resort is in central Busselton, close to all amenities and a very short walk from the Orana Cinemas where Cine Oz Film Festival is held. And this was our reason for being in Busselton for 4 nights in August. Our bedroom and en suite upstairs were excellent: clean and fresh,... More

Spent 4 nights. The 2 storey apartment was clean and we'll appointed. Downstairs is a kitchen and living area. Upstairs a comfortable bedroom, large inbuilt wardrobes with double doors leading to balcony overlooking the swimming pool. Good idea to have blinds instead of curtains so you can have them partially open. Special commendation to the housekeeping staff. Excellent work. However... More

Independent double story units with everything in them. Excellent for a short stay. Reception is in Ship Inn which is strange though. I liked the kitchen and balcony part (especially facing pool) in them. Unit was tidy but carpet had few stains in them and wooden floor was bit cranky as you walk on it. Wardrobe is spacious but toilet... More

The place is part of the Ship Inn situated in the heart of Busselton. It is more a hotel /motel set up with very cheaply built single bedroom units.
