Just had a wonderful stay at Gilgara Resort. Nice self contained suites, with greeneries and wildlife a few metres away. Friendly staff. Memorable stay. Highly recommended. Stayed in garden suites, for 4 nights, as part of a family vacation. Close to town, yet not in town.

We recently spent 2 nights staying in the house at Gilgara and cant speak highly enough of this place. Angus who runs the place is knowledgable, polite & welcoming! The premises were cleans, gardens well groomed and breakfast a delight! Will defiantly returning here to stay and recommend to anyone visiting the area.

The best thing about Gilgara is the lovely Angus. He is overtly friendly and welcoming. He also knows much about the best places to dine and is very helpful. The accommodation was lovely too, especially the lovely, well tended gardens and pleasant ante rooms. Deb, Peter and Sach.

My husband and I stayed in one of the garden, as reading the previous reviews, the house had some negative feedback on the decor and standards in general. And just as the previous reviews say, the garden suites are absolutely lovely. However, the main house was being renovated and is almost complete, and it looks absolutely fantastic, so next time,...

Serene and lovely place to live in and relax and enjoy the local walks, views and experiences.....or just veg out in Gilgara itself. A truly de-stressing experience and I would highly recommend Gilgara Retreat.

Group of us stayed in 3 rooms across Easter weekend 2014. Garden suites were lovely and we even spotted a family of kangaroos in the "driveway". We even heard what we thought were kangaroos just outside our garden suite. We were quite surprised at being told off for coming late on the day of check-in as the owner had to... More

We had difficulty booking a room over the Easter holidays and was recommended the Gilgara by another neighbouring property and was pleasantly surprised, the property is understated, elegant and beautifully maintained. The Garden suites were designed to allow the outdoors to flow gracefully indoors, waking up each morning to see trees and blue skies was heaven :) Steven and Elaine... More

We stayed one week in one of the garden suites and it was beautiful. A quiet place to relax in the middle of nature. Close to Margaret River in the middle of the vine region you can also hike or relax on the beach which is only a few km from Gilgara. Thanks to Steven and Elaine for a beautiful... More

We love staying at Gilgara. We have stayed a number of times over the last few years. You feel like you are miles from nowhere but you are so close to everything. The hosts are fantastic, a wealth of local knowledge and nothing is ever too difficult. The abundance of wildlife is a pleasure to wake up to in the... More
