We've stayed there on 3 different trips, each time in a different studio, and each time we come back well-rested, refreshed and recharged. The studios are very comfortable and inviting with excellent privacy, surroundings peaceful and tranquil . And with a gorgeous view too! Despite the feeling of wonderful seclusion and being close to nature when you're there (while in the modern comforts of the studio), it's only a short drive to the main street in Margaret River where my favourite restaurants are. That's a big plus!
A true getaway! We can't wait to be back again!

The view is spectacular from every corner of the studio. The spa opening on to the outside deck is irrestible. Hearing the many birds on the hillop is relaxing. The kings size bed was super comfortable. Kangaroos grazing on the hillside at dusk. Love the big shower. The whole experience was thoroughly relaxing, enjoyable, exciting and memorable. A truly wonderful secluded get away to share with your loved one. We hope to be back one day.

Room Tip: Request studio 4 or 5 as the spa opens on to the oustide deck

Great secluded peaceful location. Nice spacious unit with a lovely deck area to sit out on. We took water and CD's which was a good call, as it is a way into town. DVD's are provided, and more could be requested from the office. We could put the music up loud without disturbing anyone which was nice.
This is described as a luxury accommodation, but it is not in that category at all, which was disappointing. It is good basic accommodation . . . the mattress, pillow and doona are all hard, and the bathroom is a disabled access bathroom which I did not get from the website, so it was a bit ordinary and hard to have dry floors after shower. There is no full length mirror, only one mirror high up in the bathroom. Need some hooks on doors to hang bathrobes up as hard to keep dry.
The bath opening out on to the deck is lovely. The soap was lovely !
We would recommend to anyone wanting some peace and space, but to be only 10 minutes from town and other attractions.

Thank you for your review of Hilltop Studios,

We happy you enjoyed some of the many elements we considered when designing the Studios.

We appreciate your observations and will be putting full-length mirrors and additional door hooks in all Studios. Further to other feedback.

We are required to provide one Studio with disabled bathroom facilities, which we have tried to achieve while retaining the look and quality of the other Studio bathrooms.

The highest quality furnishings and fixtures have been used through out the Studios including the following: King size, pillow top, posturdedic beds (new 2010), Jumbuck wool doonas, Waverley wool blankets, four pillows (two firm, two soft) St Albans Mohair throw blankets, locally crafted leather lounge suites and handmade cushions, handmade wool floor rugs, solid timber floors, wide screen digital TV’s and porcelain enamel spa baths. Plus complimentary Lindt chocolates, privacy and beautiful views.

We are disappointed that some of these items were viewed as less than satisfactory, nevertheless we do consider they could only be described as luxurious.

We stayed at Hilltop Studios for a week in July. Where do I start?

The four studios are situated on a family owned and run farm just outside of Margaret River and ten out of ten to all of the family for sharing a bit of magic with City dwellers like ourselves. We stayed in a Deluxe studio (Number 4) and in all honesty cannot think of anything that could be improved on here. All of the studios are positioned so that privacy is at a maximum, all have magnificent views of the fields and bush land, we watched kangaroos coming out to eat late in the day which was a real treat. The studios have been thoughtfully designed to maximise these views and when you first arrive it really is one of those 'Wow!' moments. We didn't close our blinds the entire stay, it is that private and beautiful, found ourselves getting up with the light and going to bed with the dark. This might sound an odd thing to say, but the water here is all from a rainwater tank and it tastes sensational!

No one bothers you at all, but I hasten to add if you require help or information, the people here are friendly and helpful. We had a question or two and Paul was over straight away. I get the feeling these are genuinely good people and admire what they are doing with the bush and environment.

You are free to walk around the farm, which we took full advantage of, it was brilliant.

Margaret River is literally up the road and if you feel like it you can have a drink at the Must wine bar or (and cannot recommend these next two enough), visit the bakery / cafe and the Settlers Tavern for a meal. If you want to stay put, the studios offer a hot plate, barbeque, microwave oven and full size fridge / freezer.

Is this a rave? Well, yes. My wife has already been hassling me: 'When can we go there again?' So if you are looking for a modern, airy, clean place with amazing views and privacy - you can't go wrong. Highly recommended!

We very much enjoyed our 3rd stay at Hilltop Studios. The view is superb and the studios are equipped with all that you need for a very relaxing time. My wife and I went for 3 nights without the kids and loved sitting on the deck, having a drink, rugged up warm watching the rain fall. The scenery from inside & out of the studio is absorbing and we loved the calmness that it brings. We have stayed at a few places in M River and this is hard to beat.
We will be back.

Excellent location and the chalets are nice and secluded--perfect for a couple's getaway! Waking up each morning to kookaburras and an amazing view. The only downside is there's no oven in the Panorama Studio kitchen (not sure about Deluxe) and no wood fire, which is one of the things I love about being in Margaret River in winter. But overall, a really beautiful place to stay and will definitely be back.
