“Great location with a great pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I had three properties to choose from which the Information Centre gave me… one at the bottom end of town, one up the top, and one in the middle. I chose the Darby Park because it was the hotel located in the best spot and as well as having a pool it was only a little bit more expensive than the others. I thought it was worth it with the location and the pool as it was summer.
A reasonably large room with a king bed. The bathroom could've used an upgrade to match the rest of the room, but all in all, it was a good place to stay.
I would stay here again.

Our two nights stay was thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing. The room was clean, bright and well appointed. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare our meals when we wanted to eat in. The staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient.
All in all a great location, great place to stay and one I would recommend if you would like to get away from the rat race for a few days.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the pool if you require a little more peace an quite.

This is a lovely place to stay, clean well appointed apartments with comfortable beds, the friendly staff are helpful and the location is perfect, my 9 year old granddaughter commented on the way home we didn't drive the car once while we where there. The pool is great we all enjoyed it and we enjoyed an evening barbecue on the clean well maintained barbecues near the pool.
Top place for a relaxing weekend in a great location

Room Tip: We chose a room overlooking the pool was great as we sat on the balcony and watched the older childr...

Darby Park was a great stay for us. We wanted to go on a mini break with our 1 year old and as any parent knows we longed to make bed time easy! They set up a cot for us with beautiful linin and located our apartment close to the BBQ, a big grassed area and pool area..... on the ground floor. We took our baby monitor with us.. which I would recommend to parents... but once he was asleep it meant we could sit back and relax in a separate area. Clean, friendly and supplied everything we needed. Would choose them again.

Room Tip: As above if you have little ones.

I stayed here initially on a 3 night booking then extended to a 7 night stay. Staff couldn't have been more friendly, helpful or understanding. The reception staff in particular were wonderful.
I stayed in a one bedroom suite on the edge of the forest so the views were gorgeous, quiet and peaceful, while being so close to everything. Great business base with a desk and WIFI. The location on the main strip - easy to walk to food and shopping after hours. Used the kitchenette and it was also really well equipped and set out. Rooms are modern and spacious and have a calm feel. Although this was only my second stay there, I've travelled very regularly for business to the South West over the last six years and it's definitely now the top of my list in that area.
Next time I am booking in the South West I'd go back for business and I would also book to go back for a holiday anytime. Just lovely.

We stayed at Darby Park as a base when we went to Margaret River for a few days. First off, it is an excellent base as it is literally just off the main strip, and opposite the tourist office, the most important part of your Margs trip.

The apartments themselves were modern, clean and spacious, and maintaned well during our two night stay. I made use of the pool, which was not heated, but the staff were friendly and offered to get me more towels which was nice.

Very easy to find in Margaret River. The receptionist was welcoming and gave us some useful thoughts. Very pleased with the room which had been booked indirectly through a travel agent. A quiet setting with pleasant views into the woods beyond. We assumed the Kookaburra that made regular appearances had been laid on by DPSR. As others have noted it is well placed for local facilities and a good base for visits in the area. Couple of points- if you have heavy luggage the stairs are a bit testing and the robust door locks are quite noisy.
We wish our schedule would have allowed us a bit longer in Margaret River and DPSR proved an excellent base.

Room Tip: Ask for ground floor if you have much luggage or are physically tested.
