a great location with a lot going for it but it could be sensational. The accommodation was clean and well maintained with great views. The lodge where breakfast was served was also enjoyable. But for $350 per night too expensive for what you get. Why not have on offer some meats and vegetables that you could cook yourself at night.... More

Wow, what an amazing place! We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted by one of the owners who was very friendly and accommodating. The room was superb and the view was top class. All the gardens were spectacular and the facilities were amazing. We made use of the 3km walking track around the amazing property before breakfast in the morning... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Merribrook Retreat post Christmas. We were overwhelmed with the style, quality and soul of the retreat. The combination of authentic friendly service on behalf of the hosts Richard and Lorraine and facilities that exceeded expectations created a unique, highly recommended experience. The attention to detail throughout all aspects of the... More

We've visited Merribrook twice now from the UK first time as a couple, found the place so enchanting, peaceful and beautiful we returned four years later with our kids. The magic was still there and the kids were entranced. This place will never get old for us x

We have stayed here twice now, once after our wedding and again on our first year anniversary. It is a beautiful place and incredibly peaceful. Hosts Richard and Lorraine are wonderfully warm and inviting and only too happy to help with any enquiries. We splashed out and stayed in the Lake House which is cleverly positioned on the property ensuring... More

Free roaming Kangaroos and bunnies greet us throughout our stay. We met the three wonderful hosts; Lucy, Lorraine and Richard. They are beautiful people who make you feel right at home which is a plus plus plus in addition to a wonderful accommodation and surroundings. Love everything!

I’m glad to have found this place for my holidays in Margaret River region. It is the perfect place to stay and discover the surrounding. We spent 4 nights in a eco lodge bungalow. I enjoyed every minutes there. But let me tell you a bit more… The park: Merribrook Retreat is a 62 hectares estate, nicely designed with a... More

Tranquil location, a bit off the beaten track but with excellent facilities. We were there for winter, and the cottages were well heated. Breakfast was excellent, with choice of mains changing on a daily basis. Great place for walks. Wifi only available in the main lodge, so a good place to escape from being "connected" if that's what you want

If you're looking for a relaxed stay in the bush, Merribrook is for you, however do not be mislead by the "luxury" branding on their web site. The retreat is in the bush surrounding by a lovely farm style property, lots of wildlife and very tranquil. The accommodation consists of separate cabins without any phone to reception or mobile reception... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you did not come to breakfast and enjoy our service/ local knowledge and gourmet breakfast. It is also a shame you opted for our standard accommodation instead of the luxury accommodation as that has been disappointing for you. Mobile phone reception and slow internet speeds are issues for Margaret River region... More
