#5 of 17 hotels in Busselton
We are a small friendly motel of 16 rooms situated in a quiet street in the heart of Busselton. It is a very short walk to the beach at the end of our street, plus all cafes, restaurants, shops and bars. The interiors of the motel rooms were renovated a couple of years ago. We have many repeat guests including Reps on their fortnightly/monthly runs. We pride ourselves on friendliness and cleanliness!

Gale St motel is hidden off the beaten track, but 5 minutes' walk to the CBD and beach. It's small and friendly, and for my purposes it is thoughtfully set up, modern and comfortable. For a quick overnight business trip, I found my room convenient and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Nothing fancy, but nothing missing. Suited my purposes very well indeed. I'll be back.

We used to stay here on a regular basis and it was always excellent. Due to Covid and other matters we haven’t returned for a while. We have just revisited for 3 nights and it’s still excellent. The owners and staff do a great job of making everyone so welcome. The units are clean, functional and close to the centre of town. The jetty is only a walk away. We will return very soon for another visit.

Stayed at Gale Street Motel for 3 nights 15-18 Sept had an excellent stay in double motel room (No. 5). The room was spotlessly clean and had everything you could require, even down to toaster, microwave etc. The management were welcoming and helpful, we left our keys in the room after office closed, this was dealt with efficiently and within minutes back in our room. The location is another big plus you can walk to jetty, town, restaurants etc., we will be staying here in the future.

Booked for a three night stay, but cut it short. Night one, car burn outs in the area, night two a domestic violence issue in the street behind and another guest driving in with their music blaring late at night, not signs any where asking for courteousy? Didn'tstay the full three nights, ended up driving home for a good nights sleep!! shame as accommodation is still great and in a handy walking distance location. However no refund offered for the early departure..... Bathrooms could do with a revamp, dripping tap and leaking shower facia screen. Also as the TV is pretty ordinary in the south west Netflix or Foxtel might be a nice option - would pay more for this in the rooms.

Hi Karen. Sorry in this instance you did not have an enjoyable stay. As you would know from many of your past stays, Gale Street is normally a quiet place to stay. Unfortunately we are not able to control inconsiderable neighbours or hooligans who desire to do a burn out in the streets, nor guests driving into motel with loud music. This is definitely not the norm. As there were not any major issues with your room and you left early without discussing these issues, a refund would not be warranted in this instance.

We stayed in Villa 3 for 3 nights and absolutely loved it . Fantastic staff and in walking distance to local restaurants, the main St and the beach / jetty and other attractions. The Villa has everything you need , fridge, oven , washing machine and fully equipped kitchen Highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again !
