My husband attended a business meeting here this week, so my son and I tagged along. The location is great as it is extremely close (walking distance) to the Busselton Jetty and two lovely restaurants (The Goose & Equinox) and not far from the centre of town. Great if you like to get out and stretch your legs with some...

Service poor, salad bar lacking. We ordered fish and chips and parmigiana and chips. Fake over cooked chicken. Fish was incredibly bad.... Must have been frozen for decades, it was inedible. Avoid avoid avoid. Plenty of other great options close by.

We had a laugh when we rocked up we had the same room as we had about 3 years ago with the same ripped fly screen and dripping taps. We stayed in the lower ground rooms they are very big ours had 2 double beds. I think if the rooms were maintained a little better it would help .surely it...

Went there on Sunday 5/3 for dinner. Ordered the 'special', which was trout with mango chilli salsa. Trout was basically inedible. I knew on sight that it had been cooked quite some time earlier and left sitting and then reheated as there was absolutely no moisture on it whatsoever which you would expect from something recently cooked. It was set...

Had dinner here on a quiet Tuesday night. Service was quick and efficient. My garlic prawns were delicious as was the lamb chops the others in our party ordered. The place has not changed much in all the years we have been coming to Busselton and that counts for the meals as well - good value for money.

I should have been warned by the bad spelling of the Fillet Mingnon as the steak was very thin (like a schnitzel) instead of the usual thick piece of meat. It was a very disappointing meal. Would not bother again.

Bathroom was a bit dated but clean functional, with plenty of room. Room itself was very spacious. We had dinner in the restaurant, and both of us were very pleased with our meals. Highly recommend for the price.

Had dinner at the hotel. Great meal, great hotel. Just across from the Jetty. Easy to find up near the water. If looking for a good pub meal this is a great spot to try. Friendly staff and very clean hotel

We came for dinner in the bistro. We were told the kitchen was really struggling and it would be 45-60mins before they could even think about our dinner. We agreed with the courteous barman that we'd order entrees (about 8:10pm), and come back in 30-45mins to order mains. He checked this with the kitchen. When we came back at 8:40pm...

Went out for dinner last night to the Esplanade , we got there about 7.40pm & they finish cooking at 8.00pm so the salad bar you get with your meal was almost empty . The service you got once you ordered was very prompt . The food wasn't too bad it had the ribs & they were nice , but...
