Take a [coffee] break at Seashells Mandurah

Mooba pop up at Seashells Mandurah

Guests and visitors to Seashells Mandurah are now able to enjoy a freshly made coffee and treats in the comfort of the property, thanks to the installation of a new pop up Mooba café.

Serving Mooba’s own blend of freshly roasted Five Senses Coffee, plus a range of breakfast treats including toasties, bircher muesli, cookies, slices and freshly toasted banana bread, the pop up café will be open each morning from 14 to 27 April in a trial period.

Mooba owner and manager Mark Dillon said the idea of the pop-up came from his love of creating spaces to relax and enjoy great coffee.

“Mooba is all about finding a space and building a place that is more than a café. For example, in Cockburn we’re based in a sea container, and in Wembley we’re in just a small space that has now become the hub of Wembley.

“I’ve stayed at Seashells Mandurah over the past few years and I felt the addition of a cruisey pop-up cafe would provide a great service to Seashells guests.”

Seashells Mandurah General Manager Bram Newbold said the pop-up café was a great initiative and would provide a new offering to guests.

“Mooba pop-up will provide a place to relax, with both lounge and milk crate seating. Of course, guests are also welcome to take their coffee back up to their rooms to enjoy the beautiful view.

“Based on the response we receive over the two weeks we are hoping to be able to make the pop-up a semi-permanent installation at Seashells Mandurah.”

Guests can place an order from the comfort of their apartment via SMS to 0481 121 786, or take advantage of Seashells Mandurah’s free WiFi and order through the Mooba web app.

Seashells launches generous new loyalty program

Download our App and be rewarded

Download our App and be rewarded

Seashells Hospitality Group is excited to launch a new app-based loyalty program for returning guests.

The program is very simple, and very rewarding. For every 10 nights stayed at any of Seashells’ properties – Broome, Mandurah, Scarborough or Yallingup – guests will receive a $200 gift voucher, which can be used at any property towards their next stay.

Guests just need to download the new Seashells app and the front desk staff at each property will assist in scanning a QR code located at each property’s reception. This will log their stays with the property to go towards their reward.

The Loyalty Program is an ongoing rewards system for all guests staying at Seashells. Every paid night stayed counts, regardless of the rate, and the $200 reward voucher can be used any night of the year – no restrictions apply!

The nights stayed need not be consecutive, nor be at the same property. Points continue to tally, to reward returning guests and thank them for their loyalty.

The Seashells app is available to download now for free through the App Store for iPhone and iPad users, and the Google Play store for Android and tablet users.

For more information on the Loyalty Program visit the Specials page of our website.

Guests at Seashells Mandurah can enjoy more than the surf for free with the introduction of free WiFi in all Seashells-managed guest rooms, conference rooms, lobby, as well as its bbq al fresco area and poolside.

Catching up on emails and surfing the web is easy when relaxing in your modern, self-contained apartment. Upon check-in each guest will receive a complimentary Daily Free Stay Quota of 200MB of data, with the quota resetting at midnight each day.

It makes working away from home easier too. As Seashells Mandurah is renowned for its conferences by the sea it is giving conference delegates a Free Day Delegate quota. With an allocation of 300MB, it’s a great opportunity to catch up on work or personal errands throughout the duration of your conference.

If guests wish to use more than their free quota they are able to purchase day, week and month packages offering them not only more data, but also faster download and upload speeds. Prices start from $10 for one day access, $55 for one week and $75 for one month.

Mandurah is the first of the four Seashells properties to introduce free WiFi for Seashells guests. Seashells Scarborough will quickly follow by introducing free WiFi by the beginning of March 2014, and Broome and Yallingup will follow shortly after.

Seashells supports Friends of Cape to Cape Track

Seashells is proud to be part of the not-for-profit group Friends of the Cape to Cape Track.

The Cape to Cape track runs north to south along the western edge of the south west of Western Australia between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. This long thin strip of land forms the backbone of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, and is the setting of the Cape to Cape Track – a 140 kilometre long trail.

The Friends of the Cape to Cape Track group aims to help establish and maintain this track, increase appreciation of it, encourage community ‘ownership’ and to further the principles of minimum-impact bushwalking and sustainable environmental use.

We love being a part of this initiative and believe it is a great way to help preserve our environment and encourage others to increase their environmental awareness.

Seashells Broome 1 Bedroom Apartment

A fresh breath of ocean air for Seashells Broome

Guests at Seashells Broome are enjoying more than just the tropical warmth and sunshine this season, thanks to the successful completion of a significant refurbishment.

Seashells Broome General Manager Deb Williams has received extremely positive feedback from guests on the refurbishment of bathrooms and kitchens in all one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

“It has been a huge project for us and everything went to plan in getting the refurb completed for our busy peak season. Bathrooms and kitchens throughout all levels of accommodation were renovated with all tiling replaced, new cabinetry, fittings and fixtures installed and new appliances and whitegoods bought.

“Everyone loves the fresh new look and we love the improved energy efficiency as well.

“Cyclone Rusty caused a bit of havoc during the project with rain and wind for almost a week and the highway to Perth closing for four days delaying deliveries. But we were able to reopen Seashells Broome to guests at the end of March and all apartments are back in action,” she said.

To take a peek at the changes head to our Facebook page and check out the Seashells Broome photo album. We are very pleased with the results and the refreshed rooms have already received positive feedback from our most recent guests.

To enjoy the changes for yourself, book a stay at Seashells Broome by calling 1800 800 850, email reservations@seashells.com.au or book online and receive immediate confirmation.
