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.

We rented a two storey unit for three of us. There is a heap of room and right in the centre of Dunsborough so very central to walk around town. With a full kitchen it was easy to cook breakfast or have dinner in and a quiet night. Great if a group of friends want to stay together.

I might be going out on a limb, but feel like we had the worst apartment. We were extremely disappointed with the accommodation overall! We booked an spa apartment with kitchen for 7 nights. It was dark and depressing. The décor was dated, very little natural light, lack of storage (no drawers) noisy and no balcony. We were allocated a ground floor apartment which meant we heard all the noise reverberating from upstairs, every time someone walked across the floor upstairs, we heard it. Every time someone had a shower or bath or spa, we heard it. The room had one window above the bed. To have privacy, we needed to close the blinds, which led to no other natural light. There was one 2-seater lounge which was not large enough for two people to sit comfortably so one had to sit on the bed. Given that the room only accommodates two people - a two seat table would suffice. We received fresh towels each day and the bed was made, however the room was not cleaned for the entire stay. Looking at the photos on the website and internet - they certainly did not live up to expectation and was extremely overpriced!!

Beware! Read the reviews!! Water off.. manager accused us of ignoring sms messages.. (out having dinner at the time) . Eventually she bought bucket of water and bottle ... then took the water away when I asked why we had to put it in the sink ( thinking washing our face and hands would be good) she insisted we wash our 2 dishes!! Accusations of being ungrateful??? Left us with nothing to drink or wash hands etc.. after I sent sms she bought 1 bottle water back. No way to wash hands, flush toilet, barely enough to drink all night for 2 and wash teeth. Overly aggressive (refer other responses to reviews). Always happy to help and understanding as it was me that informed them of broken pipe.. but.. Bizarre explanations to situation, aggressive responses, never have I submitted a negative review, but you need to be aware. Waiting for the sun to rise so we can leave! So sad as we don't get time to get away and this is the worst Experience we have ever had, The water pipe will be fixed but the manager may not be! As other people have experienced!

I have stayed in many types of accommodation before and have never had to write a negative review, and so it is shame I have to write this. I was hesitant to book here after all of the negative reviews I’d read and it’s a shame I didn’t pay attention to them. Firstly, the accommodation is extremely dated and overpriced for what it is. It had not been thoroughly cleaned, and was dusty. There were very few cooking utensils and what they did have, was old and used. The accom itself was extremely small, and basic. Secondly, and most importantly, we had to cancel a night stay here as we had an emergency that we needed to travel back to Perth for. I called the emergency line and was assured by management I would not be charged on compassionate grounds if I picked up my belongings by 12pm, so we did just that. The next day I found the hotel had charged me $250. I called to question this due to the promise made to me on the phone by the owner. The lady on the phone told me that they will not be refunding me the money as this was never discussed and she did not know anything about it, which was a lie. She was extremely rude to me, and then told me “well you did leave the place a mess and items were left in the fridge”. I was shocked that this had even been brought up never mind being a reason for them to charge us. We had clearly checked out, as we had left the key and picked up our belongings. I told her the bin was not big enough for the empty boxes, and there were a few items in the fridge, as we had to leave in a rush. The hotel then sent me an email with a record from the cleaners that said due to food in the fridge, we had “not checked out” and the “Guest is expected to return to collect remaining food?”. We were not aware that we needed to return to collect remaining food for us to have ‘checked out’, we were never even contacted about this, and they had our contact details. It also said they had “checked the apartment at 5pm”, this shows they did not even bother to check if we had checked out at 12pm as discussed and promised by the owner. They did not even call us to tell us they were charging us. It is a shame that these days somebody’s word does not mean anything. These people are dishonest, disrespectful and have stolen money from our account for a service we did not receive, and without telling us. We are now having to work with our bank to get our money back. I would seriously consider other accom before booking here.

We stayed in a 2 story villa with an open top floor. Villa was quite nice, but dirty toilet was not cleaned, the cutlery drawer had crumbs and grated cheese in it, window sills above the bathroom sink was thick with dirt, and bed upstairs had a sheet on it with large stain, not very appealing to sleep in. I think it was way over priced for the type of accommodation, and would not consider this to be a resort in any way shape or form. Top floor bed was pushed up against safety fence in the open plan wouldn't recommend these villas with kids as would be pretty dangerous not sure it would meet safety standards. Wooden steps up to 2nd floor were so noisy anyone in the villa easily woken if upstairs guests needed to come down at night, units were quite hot, air-conditioning had to stay on especially for the top room, we couldn't shut our bedroom door as it would get hot. Each window faced another very close villa so no privacy. Accommodation is close to main cafes bakery and supermarkets. For $330 a night i think much better options elsewhere.

Booked the cottage via Booking.com, did an upgrade to the 2 story villa and got the cottage. This may be because of Booking.com not forwarding the upgrading request. I arrived after 8 pm on Friday so tried to speak with management on Saturday. On 3 occassions, the office was unattended. So I left it at that. Arriving at night is a bit tricky. 2 cars were parked in front of the sign making me drive past multiple times without finding the entry/ office. You get your key by typing in part of your mobile phone in a locked box. Cottage was reasonable, clean and had everything for a comfort stay. Free Wi-Fi was really good. It was close to the beach and right in town. What I didn't like we're the bodybags at the end of the bed designed to strip off your own sheets at the end of the stay. I paid 265 dollars a night to receive a hotel service. I also feel the terminology "resort" is misleading here. The village contains more AirBnB type accommodation. Will I ever come back here? Unlikely.

Stayed in the luxury apartments which was nice and clean. The room had a spa bath which was lovely. I think the price was a bit too much (570 for two nights) when breakfast isn’t included and the room couldn’t be tidied by house keeping due to covid). The restaurant attached to the bay village is nice and worth a visit. The pool was disappointing. I would stay there again but not that for that money comparing it to other air b n bs I’ve stayed in for half the price. Even though it’s not an air b n b it’s self check in self catered etc.

Upon arrival I was greeted with the rudest of managers. Off to a bad start to say the least before I even got to the disgusting room. Clearly they do not have a cleaner. There was skiddys in the toilet, dead cockroaches under the pillow, placed almost as if on purpose. As the night went on it got worse... the shower turned on for no apparent reason. I’m not one to believe in ghosts but this place is haunted. I closed the window in my daughters room until I was woken up in the early morning by my daughter saying she was freezing and when I went into her room the window was wide open. We had booked the room for 5 nights but we left the next morning for obvious reasons. I would not recommend, never come here. Not only was our experience atrocious but a family friend of ours accomodation was cancelled for absolutely no reason. Honestly a disgrace.

I booked accomodation here over 9 months ago to stay in November 2020 and only just now in August have they cancelled my accomodation. This is an absolute disgrace, as now my friends and I are left stranded with absolutely no where to stay as very single place in Dunsborough, Busselton, Margaret River, Yallingup etc. is completely booked out. They listed themselves on the official Leavers website, only to cancel on us last minute. You can guarantee I will never come here to stay in the future, ever, as they have been extremely unprofessional, knowing very well that everyone that has booked to stay here during this time will not be able to stay anywhere else. Disgusted.
