“Nicely kept and convenient”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

The Donnybrook Motel is easy to find on the main SouthWest Highway between Bunbury and Bridgetown. The lady who owns it is friendly and helpful, the rooms are a good size, comfortable and beautifully kept. The furnishings and decor are a little dated but this did not detract from the stay. The only thing that was a problem for me was the fact that the room was right on the highway which meant I was regularly woken up during the night by articulated lorries racing through at speed at 3am which meant I had very little sleep. You might fare better with a room further away from the road but this was the biggest problem for me.

Room Tip: Find a room as far away from the road as possible

Thank you for your comments they are always appreciated, it must have been a week day when the trucks start about 4am weekends are not so bad. I try to book people towards back of property whenever possible.

My wife, son and I have had a lovely relaxing three day stay at the Donnybrook Motel in January 2014. Eileen and Don are very friendly, and make you feel welcome. Good hosts! We had an evening meal and breakfast there. Both enjoyable meals. The pool was great to relax and swim in. The Motel is conveniently located in the town, and there are so many wonderful trips to do from Donnybrook (in different directions) to explore our beautiful South West. We did Balingup, Nannup, Bridgetown one day and then Margaret River, Yallingup and Bussleton the second day. Donnybrook is a picturesque town. Well recommended!

Room Tip: It is good there are different combinations of rooms to chose from.

A wonderful little spot to stay. Eileen and Don are very kind and helpful and the rooms are clean, homely and comfy. Motel is right on the main road and easy to find. The best bonus is the sparkling clean swimming pool, its great!!

My brother and I stayed over Christmas break. We had an enjoyable time. Rooms are good size, beds comfortable-slept like a log. We arrived early and allowed to book in at 10am. Aircon and fridge worked well.
Christmas night, lots of cars in parking bays, all quiet which was great.
We have no problem recommending this motel.

We have stayed here on several occasions (business trips) and have never been disappointed. Yes it is a little '70's but it is always clean and comfortable & the hosts are always very accommodating. This time our 'adult' children joined us and booked the room next door which happened to be an adjoining room and it worked a treat. One evening we decided to have a bbq - the bbq was clean, the utensils were supplied and it was very enjoyable. We will definitely use the Motel as it is in a good location.

My wife and I stayed for 1 night and were very pleased. We were early leaving Perth to come down so we called Eileen to ask if it would be ok to check-in at 12pm instead of 2pm with no problems at all.
The rooms are a little out dated but very clean and the shower is to die for, with a strong massage shower head. A great place to stay and would have no problems staying there again.
