The bathroom was really small and it was difficult having to go upstairs to the toilet ... my partner has a disability and stairs are very challenging for him.

The Ship is centrally located for a walk in any direction to shops and the beach etc, and is ideal for a couple of nights stay. The Bistro serves very good food with portions a bit to big but you would eat there more than once with its varied menu. Staff are friendly and seem to be happy in thier work so it hangs on you. The rooms are fine altho poor design makes for a wardrobe big enough for a two week stay but the bathroom is quite small, can’t change that overnight. I would stat again, if not would certain,y eat and have a drink there.

Crazy that they have a washing machine but no tumble dryer as ones clothes don't always dry overnight on a line.

Close to shops and restaurants

The staff could not do enough for us. The bedroom would need some curtains . Too bright in the morning.

Good location very centralized

Pros: Location and friendly staff
Cons: Cleanliness
Location: Centrally located in Busselton which is very good.
The place was alright but not impressive; the room was dirty and dusty. It does not look like the floor had been vacuumed when we moved in and it was never vacuumed for the duration of our stay even though we were there for four nights. The bathroom is very small and impractical; there are no shelves for toiletries and the power points are awkwardly positioned.
