This is a big old pub in Busselton with a large dining area. Menu reads pretty good for pub food but it was only really mediocre. Chicken roulade was nice but not great, Ceasar salad same and ribs certainly not the best around. Prices for mains all above $20 average about $25

Booked several rooms a month before our trip,requested an upstairs room .On check in was told all upstairs rooms were booked out, take it or leave it. We book 4 rooms 6 to 7 times a year, and reception was non appolegetic in fact straight out rude. They advertise free Wi Fi which is only available in some rooms ?...

The Lasagne was straight out of the microwave with a dollop of pizza sauce and melted microwaved cheese. The carbonara looked revolting. The salad bar was ok but again very outdated. We Would not be returning anytime soon.

We ordered barramundi with mash and garlic prawns. The mash was cold. The fish over cooked and the prawns were like rubber. All and all it was a combination of absolute no flavour. The mash took over everything. It was priced at $36 and was the biggest waste of money I have ever spent. Won't be going back. The waitress...

What can be said for a hotel whose lunch menu is one of the best, if not the best I've seen for a long time. The salad bar was excellent with some usual salads and tastes. The mixed seafood platter was a really special lunch, cooked well and very delicious. The chicken Caesar salad was the best I have ever...

I had booked and asked for a table near the salad bar due to the fact we 6 people attending and 3 were disabled but when arriving I was shown to my table which was the most furthest away from the salad bar and was a 4 person table made to fit 6 people with no room for disabled people...

Organised this location after reading reviews about the Hotel. Food was great, staff were very attentive. The only critisism being NO facilities for the grandchildren to play, after reading an indoor jumping castle etc were there for the adults to relax in relatively peace and quiet.

Went to the Esplanade for dinner last night. Not impressed with special board as the prices were expensive. Meals came slowly. The gentleman who took my order was unorganised and had to repeat my order twice.

Good location, but overpriced for the accommodation we received. However, staff were friendly. Book in room outdated. Advertised breakfast until 10, however was only till 9 in dining room. Room was relatively clean.

Six of us for lunch. Three had fish and chips, one a seafood basket - all good. Tasty beer-battered fish. A tad expensive at $27! (About double the price for the same dish at our favourite watering hole - the Northcliffe Hotel.) I and another had the roast pork from the specials menu. A poor choice for both of us...
