We stayed here for one night after the Bunbury Cup race day. My husband left his sunglasses in the room. As soon as we got home, I called the hotel, and told them exactly where he had left them, and asked that they be sent to us. The housekeeping staff said the sunglasses were not there. And asked 'if we...

They charge delivery for room service which I found laughable! $6.50 for an ice bucket to be brought to the room, what a joke! The next night it didn't come, so I had to...

We stayed here while visiting Bunbury. Although the accommodation is dated it is very clean and comfortable. The hotel is within the CBD of the town which means there is no need to use your car. We would return again.

Hotel is well situated, nice staff. Central area has hardly changed in 15 years since I last stayed there - weird dining set-up and tiny pool. Room OK, but their idea of superior/deluxe is v different from mine. One of the two lifts not working, which meant at peak times it was a bit busy, frustrating and annoying. Would stay...

This hotel was state of the art in its day but now unfortunately it is seriously in need of a makeover. It looks, feels and, well IS a bit old and tired. Having said that, everything worked pretty much as it should and overall the hotel was comfortable enough for a one-night stay. I stayed here on a Saturday night...
