This is my 1st time stay in this motel. Excellent location and cosy room in the cold spring. I love the trail walk behind the motel. Fantastic work-out for us each morning. This is a much loved motel among all which I have stayed. Will be back again !

I like the fact that it is next to a forest trail and a brewery that serves super Delicious food. It is a 3-minute drive into the not too large town and a 15- minute drive to the wonderful wonderful White Elephant Cafe...yum! yum! Not to be missed! The room is okay and comfortable but not large enough for one...

Many thanks Janet for taking the time to review your stay. As you say we are centrally located to wonderful things to see and do in the region. As we are a Motel the rooms are not large, however there are plenty of Resorts available for guests who want to spend the day indoors.

Lovely bush setting, private and well appointed rooms. Very friendly hosts, and lovely breakfast basket. Close to Margaret River, but no footpath for a distance so not so easy to return from evening dinner in town in dark. Otherwise a very relaxing spot. Close to a lovely walk up the river.

We stayed two nights here while in Margaret River. I had requested a room away from the highway and this was accommodated. The room had a king size bed, a/c and also facilities to wash dishes in the room. We brought our own breakfast but toaster and microwave is provided.

Arrived late in the afternoon and the owner herself was waiting for us to check in, booked directly and got ourselves basket breakfast which was quite a lot for one person to consume. Room was clean and enough for four of us and there's a table outside our room, will come in handy if weather wasn't too cold. Overall, great...

Thank yo very much we appreciate your lovely review. Once the weather is a bit warmer the outdoor settings and barbeques will be used on a regular basis. We are happy that the complimentary continental breakfast basket included with your booking through our own website was adequate.

Stayed there just for a night, we were very well welcomed, got a nice and big room, very clean as well. The hotel is in a good location, not far from the main shops and restaurants. I would come back one day.
