Harbourside Motel Albany Western Australia

Harbourside Motel, Albany, Western Australia

October 2016

We end our 2nd day road trip by checking into Harbourside Motel after a journey of some 415km. The motel is located on Frenchman Bay road, the same road we took earlier to reach The Gap, Natural Bridge & the Wind Farm. It’s sort of back trekking to town.

It’s in a quiet location away from the city centre but conveniently near if you have a car. This motel is less than 5 minutes drive to York Street (town center) but definitely not within walking distance. It’s a small motel with ample parking bays.

Our motel room, No. 6

The front portion is the bathroom and kitchenette.

From the moment we entered the room, there was a feeling of comfort. Our Deluxe room was large and clean with comfortable queen size bed with clean linen. There was an additional single bed in the room which was not requested for but still roomy for us to walk about. We had plenty of towels, extra blankets and pillows.

1 King size & 1 single bed. Comfortably large room.

The room has a flat screen CTV, air-cond/heater, microwave, mini fridge, toaster & kettle. As this room is handicap friendly, the kitchenette, sink, electric frypan, cutlery and crockery were kept in a cabinet in a section of the bathroom. A bit odd, but serves the needs for handicaps.
