“Rosa Brook Stone B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

My husband and I stayed 4 nights over the Easter period and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were made very welcome by Vicci. On our arrival there was a nice basket of goodies waiting for us. We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the verandah and cooked a couple of BBQ's in the evening by candlelight also on the verandah. The accommodation was first class we had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Vicci gave us lots of advice on where to go during our stay in the Margaret River Region all in all a holiday we will remember for a long time.

My friend and I enjoyed our two night stay at Rosa Brook Stone. We received a very warm welcome from Vicci and Maureen and were made to feel at home.
On arrival there was a platter of delicious smoked salmon, ham, cheeses, biscuits, a dip, and a bottle of wine and chocolates to eat at our pleasure.

The accommodation was very satisfactory as was the cleanliness. The queen sized bed was so, so comfortable.

The breakfasts consisted of fresh eggs, bacon, tomatoes, mushrooms, brown and white bread and a variety of spreads.

Perhaps the only drawback is the fact that it approximately a 16 minute drive from Margaret River which is not far but seems so when you have to drive in there at night for a meal.

We spent three nights at Rosa Brook Stone B&B…we pre-paid $150 per night without breakfast.

The B&B is located 16 km from Margaret River, which wasn’t a problem for us, but might be a drawback for some. We were hoping for a quiet spot in the country, and it was, save the occasional car zipping past at high speed on Rosa Brook Road, which fronts the property.

There is only one room on offer at this B&B – a portion of the owner’s home with a separate entrance from the verandah. Upon arrival we were told which part of the verandah we could use and asked not to round the corner, as that was the owner’s private area.

Our odd-shaped space consisted of a bedroom with smallish bed (supposedly a queen, but it felt smaller), a sitting area, a kitchen and a bathroom. The sitting area had a TV that was only useable for DVDs…no TV reception…this was unexpected, as there was no mention of this on the website or when booking.

The guest wing is decorated in what I consider a ‘Victorian’ style. It’s obvious that the owner is proud of her possessions, but there were just too many of them. Our space felt slightly crowded…too much furniture, too many pillows (10 on the bed alone and more on the couch), two sets of hand held mirrors and hairbrushes on the vanity, collectibles crowding the shelf above the bathroom sink…there was limited space for us to put our toiletries, etc.

But our biggest issues with this accommodation were water and cleanliness.

The shower was pitiful – the spray from the shower head was so fine that it was a mere drizzle, no water pressure at all. It took forever to get wet enough to actually wash. And it was cold – we had to wait about 10 minutes for the water to heat up, which defies logic if the whole idea is to save water.

The shower enclosure floor was also deadly slippery – the owner would do well to install shower appliqués, or some sort of traction for safety purposes.

The other major issue was cleanliness, or the lack thereof. The tile floor felt gritty and the bottoms of our feet and socks got filthy. There were crumbs on the floor, food stains on the wall in the kitchen, and an abundance of cobwebs and dust balls. There was black muck in and around the shower. The place really needs a good overall scrub. It felt neglected, and I had to wonder how many visitors this place has actually seen. Even the mini tubs of Vegemite left on the table had expired – in August of 2009 - our stay was in March 2011.

The good points – the bed is comfortable, the location is relatively peaceful, and the rammed earth keeps the place pretty cool, although the reverse cycle air conditioner also came in handy for us hot weather wimps.

Note:

I advised the owner of our disappointment with the accommodation, and to her credit, she offered to reimburse us a portion of what we paid so that we could have a dinner out on her. She acknowledged the cobweb issues, advising that it was partly due to her poor eyesight. She investigated the water problem and determined that her water tank was almost empty.
