Perth, Australia

We spent 6 nights here and it was not enough. This was a return visit having stayed here 6 years ago on our last visit to Australia. We thought it great then, hence the return visit but this time it was even better. The cottages have been refurbished and are brighter and more comfortable. Kitchen equipment is excellent and vey...

Thank you very much Beryl and I'm sure Gail will be thrilled to hear such positive comments. In fact, I'm sure you would have been very surprised on entering the property and cottages as we've done a huge amount since your visit 6 years ago. We've improved signage, sealed the 600 metre entry driveway, completely gutted and refitted the cottages...

I don't think anyone could be disappointed with this place, the cottages are well appointed and extremely comfortable. We had my elderly mum with us and 3 young grandsons and we had a very enjoyable stay. The cottages are very conveniently located for exploring the surrounding area, great to return to in the evening time to watch the antics of...

Great to hear that you will be returning with UK family in the near future. We believe that our little piece of paradise is unique and are working to create an even greater awareness of its charms. When you return, you will notice that we've installed air-conditioning, a great feat as it tuned out. 40 years ago, when the cottages...

The property is positioned well for access to both Margaret River and the beaches, caves, wineries in the local area. The cottage was in good condition and clean and had everything we needed to self cater if we wanted. Staff we very friendly and accommodating of our needs with no fuss. Wifi access was good.

We spent 5 days at Bussels in mid December with our two children (aged 8 and 10) and loved every minute of our stay. The cottage itself was cozy had everything we need needed for a very comfortable stay. Each cottage was well spaced from the other cottages to ensure privacy. We ate all our meals outside on the little...

It's so pleasing to hear of families strolling along our walk trails as it takes you (quickly) into tall timber and unspoiled Australian bush. Thank you for your kind comments and we do look forward to having you return.

Reviewed 20 January 2017 via mobile

Peace and quiet is what you get when you come here. There is no internet (or at least very poor) onsite until you get to the end of the driveway, but you don't need it. Plenty of wineries and things to do within a short drive to keep you busy for days. The cottage was great, clean, cooled by fans,...

Thanks Darryl for spending your honeymoon with us. You may join the long list of guests who visited as youngsters and have since returned with children and even (in some instances) with grandchildren. And when you visit next, you will see that we've installed air-conditioning as a further upgrade to the cottages.

Reviewed 6 January 2017

We chose this property from the internet for its peace and quiet and the wildlife. In terms of the accommodation, it was better than we were expecting in as much as it was more modern and the facilities were good. It was clean and well maintained. This particular site has eight units on it and has a manager rather than...

Thank you for your comments. As regards the water saving notice, we obviously have no control over how long guests take to shower, but feel the need to ask for co-operation as EVERY drop comes from our soak / dam. We don't have the luxury of scheme water and have no option but to conserve what we have otherwise, guess...

We stayed here over the new year and loved it. The Cottages are clean, spacious and very well equip. We stayed in a family cottage which comprised of two rooms, one with a queen bed and one with twin bunk-beds. The manager was very friendly and offered helpful suggestions of places to visit. There is plenty of wildlife around if...

Adelaide, Australia
Reviewed 3 January 2017

Self-contained accommodation is always our top choice when traveling with kids, and Bussells ticks all the right boxes. We loved the seemingly "secluded" location in bushlands populated by wildlife. Yet it is a mere 5 minutes' drive to town for meals and supplies. The cottage is clean and well-appointed. For someone who doesn't cook, it's pretty amazing that we made...

Gee, thanks very much Jim. We are continuing to improve the accommodation and the property, within the constraints of cash flow. At huge expense, we've had the power supply & delivery upgraded and will (finally) be able to install air-conditioning to the living rooms - hopefully by the end of January. This will alleviate the cold felt by some of...

We were very happy with everything, from the receptionist to the cottage and location. we loved the bush setting, quiet, birds and the way the cottages were placed so you had your privacy. The cottage catered for everything we needed and the continental breakfast was sufficient. We would certainly return.

It's great to hear our guests stating that they will return as this confirms we're on the right track. In fact, we know of young couples who have visited, then returned a few years later with children; and some who have returned with their grandchildren. And many have returned more than 20 times through the years. The cottages have gone...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our 8 rammed-earth cottages are fully self-contained, with each having 2 bedrooms (see note), fully-equipped kitchen, living room and shared bathroom. Cottages are randomly scattered on our 20 hectare (50 acre) bush block and we're within easy driving (5kms) distance of Margaret River township, beaches, wineries, cafes, restaurants, shops and the region's best tourist features. All cottages have been completely refurbished in recent years, following which we were awarded a 4-star rating by AAA. Note: Our lead-in tariffs are for 1 or 2 persons occupying 1 bedroom. If guests wish to use the 2nd bedroom, we charge an extra bed fee in order to cover the additional costs of linen and cleaning. ... more   less
