“Much better than we expected!”
Reviewed 16 February 2013

We booked this motel, think that it may not be the best on our month-long trip. How wrong we were!
The receptionist was very friendly and helpful.
The room was clean, comfortable and ideal for us for one night.
We had paid very slightly more to be in a 'Superior Room', so that it was away from the main road, and it was certainly quiet.
It's part of the 'Arra' chain of hotels/motels, and the manageress recommended another one in the chain for a stay later in our trip. That was was also very good.
Busselton was a very pleasant place to stay, and we would be very happy to stay at the Amaroo Motel again.
Don't be put off by the view of the outside from the road, which we though did not do it justice. Inside the courtyard, it is very good.

Room Tip: A 'Superior Room' is in a quieter location

We stayed for a week in February. The rooms were comfortable and very clean. Our main concern when we arrived was the potential for it to be noisy but it was actually very peaceful indeed. The hotel is ideally situated with a good choice of restaurants and the beach close by. Overall, very good value and hard to fault.

Room Tip: Don't worry about the road- not noisy at night.

I've stayed at Amaroo for many years and always look forward to it. I stay in the rooms beside the highway and I find them roomy, clean and comfortable. Best of all are very reasonable corporate rates if you are travelling for work.

The motel is very close to fast food and just a 5-10 min walk to the centre of town. You won't be bringing the wife here on your honeymoon (not in the highway rooms anyway) but it serves it's purpose well and staff are always very friendly. There is also a nice BBQ area and small garden which is very nice.

In regards to the highway noise it is busy but it's quitens down by 8pm and is virtually dead by 10pm. The traffic rises again around 7am which if your here for work is perfect :)

Room Tip: Note my comments about the highway noise. They also have rooms out away from the highway should you...

I'd be happy to stay here again. You can tell that the owners put a lot of effort into repainting and updating the rooms. We had a good TV, comfortable bed, and a little fridge in the room. The pictures of the place don't make it look all that good, but I do think that it looks better in person than in photos. Don't think twice about staying here.

Very welcoming and a great place to stay. We were running late on our travels and didn't expect to arrive until after the reception had closed so I called 'ken' on the way down to let him now we were running late and he said he would stay up until we arrived, which he did - thank you! The rooms were extremely clean and the bed very comfortable with crisp, clean, white sheets. The amaroo provided everything we could need from a motel and we certainly wouldn't have any hesitations in staying there again next time we are in town. Walking distance to great eateries, the local pub and jetty and beach area and more. Fabulous stay - see you next time

We called in at the motel late afternoon on the off-chance of a room. The lady in reception offered us to check the room before we took it. The room was nice, clean & spacious. On checking out, the lady was very nice with lots of feedback about the township.

Room Tip: The larger rooms on top storey are really good.

This was a fantastic place to stay and represented good value. I stayed in Room 1 and found it spacious, well appointed, comfortable and above all very clean. It had the best shower I experienced on my month's trip with great water pressure.The bed was comfortable with crisp cotton linen and pillows. I loved the location of my room (on the lower floor, at the beginning of row). I stayed two nights and was allowed a late checkout when leaving which was much needed and appreciated. All motel staff and the owners, Noelene and Ken, were warm, friendly and helpful, with Noelene also sharing some great tips on the best local beaches to head for. I would definitely recommend Amaroo and wish Ken, Noelene and the team all the best for the future.Thank you for a lovely stay.
