5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

My husband and myself had 3 relaxed nights here we were in Metricup for a wedding and visiting friends. Kerry and Ric were wonderful hosts their breakfasts were superb you certainly won't go hungry. The setting was peaceful and picture perfect. The room was spacious with a king sized comfy bed lovely and clean. Loved they had rain water for drinking as we are used to this no complaints from us. Would highly recommend to all our friends and our friends in WA .Thank you to our wonderful hosts

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Accommodation very clean, setting is beautiful and quiet, we looked on here for reviews then booked, we thought it was near all the attractions but found it is quite a way from anything so you need a car. Taxis would not collect you for less than $100 which was a nightmare at night if you wanted to go for a meal and have a few glasses of wine. Also the kitchen is not for shared use which we discovered after buying lots of shopping so we were slightly disappointed.
Overall nice place for people who do not drink and don't mind being isolated, maybe more suited for older couples.

Room Tip: All rooms the same.

My wife and I were just down in Margaret River for an overnight stay and were looking for somewhere well-priced that was just a little bit 'nice'. Craythorne Country House did not disappoint. The location is perfect for exploring all that the region has to offer and the accommodation is surrounded by stunning gardens that are packed with bird-life. The rooms were beautifully appointed and spotlessly clean and I have no idea what one of the previous reviewers was talking about because Julie, our host, was perfectly lovely. Throw in afternoon tea, a delicious (and very substantial) breakfast, super-comfy bed...I could go on. We loved it and it was a perfect place to unwind after all the stresses of the city. We can't wait to go back.

Craythorne House is the ideal place to relax in beautiful country surroundings.Situated about 2 km along an unsealed road from the Bussell Highway, it is a peaceful retreat from everyday rush and bustle. The scent of the roses, the call of the birds quickly erase any stresses you may have arrived with. Add the friendly and most helpful hosts, Julie and Ken, a wonderful breakfast, home baked cup cakes chocolates and port,every evening to complete the perfect spot to enjoy the many wineries in the immediate vicinity. Highly recommended

My boyfriend and I wanted to stay in Margaret River, but outside of the town centre. Craythorne Country House is just outside of the town centre (approx 15 mins), and it's beautiful! Very close to local attractions, like the Margaret River Chocolate Factory, Cape Lavender and the wineries. It was nice and quiet, so we were able to enjoy a sleep in, and to wake up to the sounds of the birds!

Beryl was our host, and she was an absolute pleasure. Breakfast was yummy. It was a lot of fun sitting around the table with the other guests having a good chat and a laugh, while enjoying your bowl of fresh fruit, yoghurt and muesli. In addition, Beryl served a cooked breakfast; eggs, tomato, hash browns, bacon, toast and tea/coffee! The jams were made in-house (and I bought several jars to bring home!).

It was an absolute pleasure staying here, and it deserves to be higher up the list! We really loved the at-home feeling, which was thanks to the hosts warm welcome and friendly service. It was also the little touches, like chocolates by the bed, handmade biscuits for afternoon tea, and port in the guest lounge room. It's clear that the house was built with love, as there is quality finishings and the interior decoration is consistent and warm. It was recently renovated, so the rooms are very clean and new. Something I appreciated, was that there's no TV in the bedrooms. Who needs TV when you're in Margaret River? I enjoyed some time away from technology. The bed was VERY comfortable as well.

I cannot fault Craythorne. We have already decided that it's out number one choice for when we stay in Margaret River. (Feel free to contact me if you'd like more info!)

Beryl has been our relief manager since we started Craythorne Country House in 1998.
Beryl is my cousin Graeme's wife, so we have worries leaving Craythorne in her very capable hands.
Your comments about Beryl and Craythorne are very much appreciated as we do try to present a wonderful place for our guests to relax.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you again.

Kind regards, Ken.

We stayed two nights just before the Easter Break and it was devine. Surrounded by a beautful rose/ flower garden, sheep int he back paddock and free roaming chickens this it was so peaceful and relaxing. The hosts were more than accomodating with providing tips and advice from where to watch the best sun set, great wines and great places to eat. The breakfast is faultess - muesli, yohgurt, fresh breads, eggs from the barn and a complete fry up. They have an indoor fireplace and complimentary port as well. It was a nice change not to have a tv in the room - the perfect way to unwind and slow down. Its 10 minutes out of town and right near some great wineries and brewries. Highly recommend.

My partner and I stayed at Craythorne House just after the Easter Holiday.
It is nestled away in quiet bushland approx 15 minutes drive from Margaret River town. The house and gardens are beautiful and it was refreshing to hear animals wandering outside our window in the morning, rather than the sound of a busy street.
We were disappointed that there wasn't a TV in the bedroom and although there was a TV for use in the guest's lounge, we definitely did not feel welcome to use it...or the lounge area in general in fact! The owners gave very little advise on the local area - instead directing us to a few of the brochures in our room.
Although very clean and nicely presented, the house and owners had an unwelcoming and cold feel....not what we are used to having stayed in many B&Bs over the years.
For this reason, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone in the future.
