Best Western Hospitality Inn

There are not many budget hotels where you can enjoy stunning views over the Southern Ocean, but the Best Western Hospitality Inn in Esperance is one of them. Boasting comfortable, if somewhat dated rooms, the hotel is centrally-located and great for exploring everything the town has to offer. The rooms, breakfast and staff all combined to make our stay a comfortable one.

Esperance

Experiences in Australia


Esperance has an interesting coastline, beaches and is very good for fishing. Esperance is 720 kilometres from Perth. Named after two French frigates L’Esperance and the second was the Recherche. As a result, the bay was named Esperance Bay and the islands nearby became known as the Recherche Archipelago. The town lies on a bay, with the islands of the Recherche Archipelago visible offshore. Esperance is a popular tourist destination, an agricultural centre and a seaport. Watch out for the Esperance Doctor a wind that blows most afternoons and gains strength as the afternoon progresses.
