My wife and I had a first floor apartment in August last year, the receptionist was really friendly and welcoming. We had a first floor apartment which was MASSIVE! Lounge/diner then bedroom/bathroom. NB there was a washing machine there ( really handy after two weeks travel!?), all of the kitchen was well equipped and the bed very comfortable. We were... More

We had booked 2 nights accommodation and then had to unavoidably cancel with a little over 24 hours notice - sick child :( Sadly the Margarets Forest folk insisted on charging us for full cost of the first night $260, despite it being school holidays when there was a reasonable chance the room would be booked by other holiday makers....

We would love to host you in the future to create happier associations with Margarets Forest and this wonderful region. Margarets... More

The website gives the impression that this is a resort in the forest - peace and quiet etc. It's not. It's clean and well maintained and comfortable but that's all. It's on the Bussell Highway and right in the town. Not much retreat there. If you're looking for a motel - and not a holiday - it's fine. Though it's... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Margarets Forest. For a return visit to Margaret River, it is really disappointing to read you feel the place 'has gone backwards' as having personally only lived here myself for just 5 years, I have yet to run out of things to explore and enjoy in the region. I can honestly say... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. Bedrooms are on the ground floor with living quarters upstairs. The apartment was very well equipped. Our bedroom faced the main road but traffic noise was not a problem to us. It is in a very good location on the edge of the town. Opposite is a home made... More

My hubby and 2 boys stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. We found it to be very well equipped, plenty of towels and very comfortable. My boys are 2 and 1 so the stairs were a bit of a problem, maybe a stair gate would come in useful, the staff did give us a porta cot to... More

Booked 3 nights and on arrival found the reception very helpful. The unit was very well appointed and very clean. Close to all the eateries and shops and a great launching pad to access all that Margaret river has to offer. Only possible negative is it's close proximity to traffic but this was more than compensated by the price.

Pros: The rooms are massive and feature small kitchens and very comfy bed. Location is great. Right in the middle of town. Walking distance to restaurants, info centre etc. Cons: no room service. I.e you have to clean up after yourself. The bedroom room layout is terrible. The shower bath is located behind the tv which makes showering privacy difficult... More

For the second time in three years we spent five days over Christmas at Margarets Forrest, in a two bedroom self contained apartment. Travellers are spoilt for choice in this area so for us to have stayed twice and plan to return for Xmas 2015, they have to be doing something right. While it's true the location on the main... More

Great location by the main street in walking distance of restaurants and bars. Very helpful reception staff who gave us brochures and explained about the area on arrival. The room was lovely, though a little dated, but they were very homey and comfortable! It was great having our own kitchen area to save eating out for every meal! Would highly... More

Was simple homely type accommodation. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location at the start of the main street. Lots of nice drives around the Margaret River district. We went to the caves and decided to only do the Mammoth Cave, which was very pretty, but final part had a lot of stairs which was hard for my ageing mother.... More
