We were greeted by the very friendly host Angus who showed us to our room for 3 nights. I must admit I was a little disappointed in the room, with nothing standing out as a major problem, but a lot of little things such as lack of wifi in room, no full hanging wardrobe so I couldn't hang my long...

We’ve been lucky enough to stay at Gilgara Retreat several times throughout the last year while we were planning our wedding down south. From our very first stay when we first met Angus, we have been impressed by his warmth and cheeriness, and helpful advice on things to do around the area. We’ve stayed in both the house and the...

Spent two nights here. Originally booked into a room in the homestead, which we found a tad dark and depressing when we got there - no one was around at all and the atmosphere wasn't very welcoming. Also (our fault for not checking) our room didn't have air con, and it was a hot day, so we asked Angus by... More

The retreat is absolutely beautiful and the rooms are gorgeous. My partner and I had our wedding here at the beginning of Jan '16 and we couldn't have been happier. Every one of our guests were in awe of the place and plan to stay there in the future. We hired the whole place for 2 nights and it was... More

we stayed at Gilgara for Christmas just gone and found wonderful accommodation with everything we needed for a great stay. Breakfast was lovely, fresh fruit wonderful yoghurt and toast with jams, tea and coffee was available all day and I blame Angus for my weight gain as the housemade cookies were wonderful, our room was in the main homestead and...

We were looking forward to a lovely couple of days retreat in Margaret River only to find an inhospitable, UGLY and traumatic experience at this B &B. Given we were celebrating our son's 18th in town that night, we arrived late to a tiny room next to the loud office and toilets. We were woken up by loud crashing noises... More

Best of both worlds. Great location, perfect mix of a homestead feel and modern selfcontained units. We really like this place, got plenty of tips of host Angus and had a perfect 5 day stay in november 2015.

It is situated along Caves Road, lovely location out of the town but close to the coast to watch the surfing or to visit the caves and a spot of wine tasting or to go bike riding.. A very easy trip should you want to drive down to Augusta. Our host was very helpful and gave us plenty of tips... More

From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. We were made so welcome by Angus, his local knowledge and tips felt like we were given insider information on where to go and what to see. Gilgara Retreat is not a 5 Star Sydney hotel, but more like a real home from home. We stayed in the main house. Breakfast... More
