I was very impressed with the good food in the restaurant and the beds that were especially comfortable. There is a bottle shop in the car park and the foreshore and the Main Street of Busselton are only a 5 minute walk away. Look out for the for the Western ringtail possum that must live nearby. I saw him out...

I've stayed here heaps of times in the past and didn't think of it as exceptional. However, coming back after a few years, I've realised its exceptional VALUE! At least 30% less than what I normally pay for a similar place. It was spotless, with a very large room which was nice and bright and had everything I needed. It...

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

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 The salad bar was ok but again very outdated.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.
