Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

I had a few reservations after reading some of the reviews of the regular rooms but after checking in (room 13 - lucky for us) I really thought they'd given us a refurbished room. The paint on the walls was spotless, the tiles in the bathroom looked new, the bed linen was crisp and the shower curtain was spotless. In short, it looked refurbished. But apparently not. So I don't understand some of the reviews of the Resort Rooms. Room 13 is fine.

The layout reminded me more of a motor lodge than a resort. You can't fault the location overlooking the beach. Our room backed into the enclosed swimming pool area. One queen size bed and one single bed. A small table. Fridge with mini bar (good prices: A$20 for a bottle of wine). Small shower room. All very clean and water was hot.

We stayed on a Sunday night arriving about 6.30pm. Not busy and they charged us A$100 for the night. We didn't eat so cannot comment on the food. The receptionist found us a brewery on the waterfront that was open later in the evening so we went there.

I'm not sure how the room would be during the day for noise from the pool when the hotel is busy but on a Sunday night it was fine.

Thank you for your very honest review. It is very refreshing to read honest comments about our rooms and the value for money. It is always difficult to manage when a property has brand new product and older style rooms and we are very excited bbout our forthcoming renovations. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Comfortable beds, clean, great location.
Only negatives are
- the bikes to rent from resort. Not maintained. Bad experience with them.
- If you are staying in the rooms next to the swimming pool, be aware that they lock the sliding doors come 9pm. That was a bit odd! And maybe unsafe? If you like to sleep with window open, tough luck!

Thank you for your review and your honest feedback. I apologise for the problems with the bikes and have addressed this with our maintenance staff. the sliding doors are not classed as Emergency Exits and are therefore locked to prevent unruly guests partying in the pool area at night and disturbing others. It is a situation that will be rectified when we renovate those rooms.

Overlooking the ocean at Bunbury, this hotel is well placed to enjoy a leisurely time away, whilst being close to the hub of Bunbury. Service great, breakfast menu tops, great swimming pool and spa, room spacious and modern. Restaurant menu just average.

This place has everything going for it - location check, pool, jacuzzi, sauna check, in room spa check ocean view room almost check. Below standard housekeeping and some really ugly things mar the experience. To be fair though they are doing the place up. So, what's wrong with Bunbury? Why isn't packed out over a long weekend? Don't know, don't care more space and choice for us. Back to the hotel - Why do you have to navigate a maze from the pool to the reception desk for pool towels? Why are the ashtrays not emptied and hey, why isn't there a separate smoking area - haven't seen so many half full ashtrays in years and left outside since we checked in to our non-smoking room and when we left still there. Over a breakfast outside smelly ashtrays. Private outside areas from the rooms would be great instead of a communal space and some nice outside garden chairs to sit and soak up the amazing sunset in private mmmm...dreamy. Front desk could be more positive about the place they are obviously disgruntled with something going on they almost suggested we stay somewhere else. Weird? Maybe it's a bunbury thing. The resaurant guy was miserable too. Well bang for buck quite good. This place could be 5 star with very little effort and some trained staff.

Thank you for providing your honest feedback.

We have just completed Stage One of a multi million dollar refubishment and will commence Stage Two in the coming weeks which will address many of the issue you have raised.

I'm disappointed that you had issues with our housekeeping and our staff and I have addressed these concerns with the staff.

We are looking forward to our next Stage in the refurbishment program which will include our Reception area and the block of Spa rooms.

I look forward to seeing you return to the property as more of the refurbishment is competed

Kind Regards

Love the newly renovated rooms, have been coming here every year for the last 4 for the speedway, if I had to pick a downside it would be there is nowhere to hang your bathers/towels after a great swim & also nowhere to sit outside your room. Tried the room service this year & that was the disappointing part!

Hi Lisa, thanks for the great review, the new rooms are great but unfortunately not all of them have a balcony, but as we progress further with our plans we will have more room types that will suit your family needs.

I have passed your comments about room service to our Chefs.

I look forward to seeing back here again soon.

Kind Regards

Lovely side view of both ocean and the town. Obviously recently refurbished room- very modern and relaxing décor (room 55). Clean. All room amenities. Lovely tasty food in restaurant (includes fantastic ocean view and sunset). Restaurant and reception staff pleasant and appear very helpful and polite to tourists. Staff gave room upgrade without prompting. Very satisfied. Stayed 17.2.2014.

Room Tip: Cannot compare rooms only stayed once. Room 55 was absolutely fine.

I stayed here recently for the first time for a change as I usually stay at the Mantra. I paid extra for an ocean view room and to be honest the view was worth the extra dollars. However the room itself was drab and badly in need of a makeover. The room I stayed in looked as if it hadn't been dusted for a while as the exposed brickwork had an accumulation of dust and cobwebs. In fact there was a ramset screw hanging 50mm out of the wall at chest level which was pretty hard to miss. The bed was comfortable and the location is good but to be honest if you take away the view the place is a dump.

Room Tip: Try the Mantra.

Thank you for your honest review.

Unfortunately we have not been able to refurbish our Ocean View Rooms to date but they will be included in Stage Two of our renovations that will commence shortly (late April). I do hope that you will return to our property so that you can enjoy our magnificent views when we have completed these rooms.

We have currently renovated all of our City View rooms and I highly recomend anyone to book these rooms.

Kind Regards
