Clean nice rooms, toast and coffee facilities and fridge, tv and comfy bed. There was a mix-up with our booking but the staff worked extra hard to make sure we had somewhere to stay and were most accommodating. Great place, and happy to stay again.

Great central accomodation. The room was clean and great size. Staff were so welcoming and friendly. Walking distance to everything. Perfect for a one night stay in Busselton. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I stayed here for two nights when in Busselton for a wedding. I booked before leaving the UK and got a quick confirmation. I called and left a message as I thought I might arrive after 6pm and I got a prompt email with instructions about how to get access. In the event I got there in plenty of time...

We booked directly and the price was less than the Internet booking sites. Some reviewers have commented that this is a Budget Motel. Let me assure you the price may be budget, $135 a night, but that is the only thing that is. Where to start. It is within walking distance of Urban Coffee House, a great place for breakfast....

I have stayed at Gale Street twice with my third stay in a few weeks. Super quiet in the rooms which suprised me with each room booked out, great walking location close to town and the beach also the newly renovated rooms look great (all but one room 1 at the time of writing). Would recommend staying !

Great location for beach, shops and restaurants. Room was a good size and very clean, the bathroom could have done with a bit of TLC but was fine. The site manager was friendly and incredibly helpful.

This motel is down a side street so was quiet. It was a couple of minutes drive from the centre of Busselton. My fairly basic but comfortable room had everything I needed, including a kitchen with microwave, fridge, crockery and cutlery, a comfy bed, easy chairs and a table, desk, good wifi and a clean bathroom. The front desk staff...

We stayed as a family for two nights in a 2 bedroom villa. The accommodation was a bit dated but entirely adequate. The whole premises are well presented and have been modernised. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was well set out and was clean. We were happy to get a villa with a courtyard facing out...

We came onto this great Motel by mistake and we were glad we did, the manageress Chris could not have been more helpful, being school holidays when we arrived there was only one room left. We liked this Motel so much that we decided to stay two nights instead of our planned one night. Whenever we get back to the...

Friendly country service close to town and beach. Clean and comfortable. New owners are working hard updating and have free wifi, bbq area, electronic security gates and choice of motel style rooms or villas. Well done I say.
