Decided to splurge on Empire and it was worth it. It was absolute splendour. We watched the sun go down from the outdoor spa among the array of kangaroos and farm dogs, cracked some beautiful wine and had it with cheese by the fire, slept late, enjoyed the homemade rhubarb compote with strawberries at breakfast, and thought the lady in...

This is just a wonderful retreat which ticks all the boxes and more. Stylish, elegant a real slice of heaven. Thank you to Hayley and Andrea for their help and assistance for making this trip very special. This is the only place I would stay when travelling down south !

It's a long drive from Perth airport (particularly after a red-eye from Dubai), but the place is easy to find and a welcome Oasis at the end of the road. We stayed here three nights whilst we explored the Margaret river and thoroughly enjoyed it. Sadly (for my wife) there was not time to enjoy the spa as we were... More

We stayed in one of the loft rooms, which was part of the main building. My boyfriend was worried that it might be a bit noisy, but it wasn't. The breakfast was amazing, and each morning we woke up to the smells of freshly cooked eggs, an incentive to get out of bed! There was a great continental spread and... More

We stayed in one of the loft rooms which is part of the main building. I was fantastic; the room was a good size. We bought a very nice bottle of Artizan Rare Muscat from Gralyn winery and some cheese, in the evening we sat by the large open fire in the main room and just relaxed. The staff was... More

We would thoroughly recommend Empire Retreat to anyone looking for an escape from the daily grind. The setting is stunning, our deluxe villa was beautiful, the staff were lovely and the dayspa was sublime. We loved the breakfasts and the hamper was massive!!! We will definitely try to go back soon

Faultless! Amazing place to treat yourself for a getaway without the kids. Heaps of things to do around that area, but was easy to spend the whole time relaxing at the empire, amazing!! Take your bathers as there is an outdoor spa overlooking the Forrest, love the outdoor shower

With great expectations we booked a 2 night (-mandatory) in what was reputedly 'the best accommodation down south' We were disappointed. By booking 7 months in advance and paying the highest rate available of all the rooms we thought we were assured of getting the best possible room- no.
