Very friendly place with a good breakfast available until 10.00 am. Excellent room and the location was very central in Busselton which was a friendly little place. Plenty of places to eat as long as you go early.

Had a great stay at Observatory Guest House - very conveniently located near the Busselton Jetty and beach, as well as main street. Lorraine and Mike are very friendly, helpful hosts. The room was super comfortable and clean and there was a great selection for breakfast. Would definitely recommend!

Breakfast included heaps of options, something...
