We stayed in a one bedroom two storey apartment which was newish, modern and reasonably priced. It did the job both budget and comfort wise. The accommodation is in a block of buildings that consists of the pub, a Dan Murphys and the hotel rooms and apartments. I would agree with the person who suggested they replace the pillows. Also the bed is very firm. On the plus side we had a nice balcony. Bring earplugs if you are sensitive to noise as you can hear the slight rumble from the road. The pub serves up some tasty tucker, we received a complimentary drinks voucher as well. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if I came down to Busso for business or perhaps a spot of diving.

Overall the unit was clean, modern and inviting - until we discovered that the TV was not digital and did not get good reception upstairs to watch important AFL match. Then we discovered that the upstairs air-con did not heat - not good in mid-winter! Then to top it off, the towels were the smallest I've ever seen, were rough and hard. ( The shower was lovely and hot thank goodness)

Hiya,

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. We are sorry to hear that there were a few minor issues in regards to the air conditioner and TV. We have had our air con mechanic go through all of the units yesterday and service all of the units so that they are now working correctly. In regards to the TV's, they are all new and digital, however we do not have Foxtel in the rooms, so it may be that the match was not on free to air TV. Should this happen in the future, please note that all AFL games are shown in our pub The Ship Inn, which is next door. Thanks again for the review and it is great to hear that you found the unit clean and inviting.

Kind Regards
Angie Newman

The facilities, food and staff at the Ship Inn were excellent. Once I arrived I had most of what I required within walking distance, food and accommodation in house and a new shopping centre with supermarket etc just across the road.

It was a excellent place to stay, and gave us a central place and easy accesses to everything in the south west.
The other advantage was the Bistro bar was in walking distance to have a great meal each night, plus the free drink with all the meals we had
