This beautiful old homestead and adjoining garden suites provided us with a perfect base to explore the many attractions of this region. The setting was beautiful, with the large glass windows of our studio looking out on large eucalypts and lovely garden. Facilities in the room were good- large bathroom with spa, separate sleeping area- clever storage and comfy bedding... More

Fresh cookies greater us everyday and privacy was respected. Not one gripe, perfect place for a romantic getaway... Would have been nice to have wifi, which u can get... More

Best atmosphere, tranquillity and service you can imagine in beautiful surroundings in the middle of the Margaret River Region. The old homestead is perfectly renovated in a modern and yet most traditional style with high standard rooms. Angus, the manager, just completed the lovely experience by his friendly and high quality service and guidance to the attractions of Margaret River.... More

Perfect place to stay in the Margaret River. Close to all the major vineyards, beautiful grounds and cottages and an extremely friendly and helpful owner in Angus. Can't recommend this place highly enough. The only thing to look out for is that the whole region has some dicey phone and net reception, so just plan for that. We'll definitely be... More

I've stayed at a few places in the Margaret River Region, but for me this one would have to be the best. Margaret River is spoilt for choice when it comes to hotels and bed and breakfasts. Gilgara Retreat combines the best of both experiences. Whilst your stay there is guaranteed to be tranquil and peaceful, surrounded by beautiful gardens... More

This place is just so good. It's location is great, the manager Angus is the friendliest, most helpful person u could meet and the suite was great. The whole homestead is really nice - great garden and really peaceful. I don't think I'll be staying anywhere else on future visits.

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.
