“Wonderful, relaxing and memorable experience!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Our long awaited holiday to Margaret River started with finding accommodation. We decided to stay at the Heritage Trail Lodge for 7 nights between 25/12/11 and 1/1/12. Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and a bottle of champagne to say “Merry Xmas”. It was delightful. The bottle of champagne was well appreciated in the spa of our room. The view from our suite was “to die for”, beautiful forests with native trees and birds. The accommodation was fresh, clean and tidy, with character and was well looked after. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The service was exceptional. Terry and Helen (owners/managers) were very hospitable and provided us with good explanations of activities in the area. Breakfast was amazing. I enjoyed the variety of locally sourced cheeses and the espresso coffee whilst reading my magazine of the morning. I really enjoyed sitting on the balcony during the afternoon relaxing and connecting with nature. Another aspect of the Heritage Trail Lodge that I really enjoyed was the lush, green vegetation in and around the lodge. This really added to the experience. Our holiday exceeded my expectations because of the welcoming and comfortable environment and the wonderful service. It was a wonderful, relaxing and memorable experience!!!
Looking forward to going back there.

HTL is a beautifully laid out series of rooms surrounded by lush greenery. It is perfectly situated for easy access to the town for meals etc, but far enough away as to feel very secluded. The only downer is the occasional truck on the main road - but I guess every hotel would suffer that problem in Margaret River. Very friendly, helpful hosts. Lovely breakfast. GREAT king sized beds!

Room Tip: go for one of the Forest View Suites

we visited this area and stayed 2 nights in Margaret River at HTL during our driving tour. The property managers are very friendly and helpful and soon sorted a small problem when we found the bed linen had'nt been changed, a mix up with the maid and who was checking in/out etc.
We had one of the 2 garden view rooms, a nice decking area and seating outside the front door but from our balcony we had a view of the carpark, although there were trees etc around the carpark so I suppose you could describe it as garden at a stretch but we did'nt sit out. The balcony view from the forest view (dearer rooms) seemed fine.
The hotel blurb describes it as luxury accom. and once again while it was comfortable and the room furnishing (in our room) was OK I think it would be a stretch to say our cheaper room was luxury but it did have a fridge, double spa bath and king size bed and these were very nice. I think it was a bit overpriced for what it was but accom in this area is a bit on the pricey side. The continental breakfast was very nice and it was a good location for walking on the heritage trail.

Room Tip: pay more for a forest view if you want to sit out on the balcony and not hear any traffic noise

We stayed for two nights in a spa room and had a wonderful time. Helen and Terry are warm and welcoming hosts with plenty of great local knowledge. The rooms and spacious and comfortable with everything you need. The balcony look onto bushland with lots of birdlife to watch and listen to, and the bathrooms are luxurious with roomy spas and showers. And all within an easy walk of the town of Margaret River. The breakfast is plentiful, all excellent local produce - most delicious! Really set us up for the day.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this great place to other travellers!

What a find! My husband and I stayed overnight just before Christmas and couldn't have been happier with the room, service and location. A very relaxing stay. We'll be returning for sure.

Our stay at the Heritage Lodge was nothing short of fantastic. From day one to seven our expectations were met on every level. Both Terry and Helen were great hosts, very friendly and genuine and did their best to make our stay the pleasurable experience that we were hoping for. The view from the bed of uninterrupted native Australian bush was the most relaxing way to start our day. Breakfast was locally sourced gourmet foods down to the coffee beans and I must add that this induced me to increase triple fold my normal daily caffeine consumption. What we were hoping for was a relaxing week together and thanks goes to the Heritage Lodge for being a big part of that. Terry and Helen, we will see you for our next trip to Margaret River.

Kind Regards,

Tony de Graaf
