“Lovely B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

A really lovely B&B in the scenic location of Dunsborough. Sally is very friendly and helpful; breakfasts are delicious and filling. Our room was amply sized and bed was comfortable. Opened out onto the front patio, so we could have the sea breeze blow in. Short walk to the beach, and short drive to the local shops. Would stay again.

Stayed here recently for a night and Sally was the best. Had a great night here. Spacious rooms, very clean and tidy - although didn't get the chance to use the spa i am sure it would be great too.
great location, right in the middle of Dunsborough which was perfect. Breakfast was excellent, and you must try the crepes!!
Pleasant stay, will be back - thanks Sally

We stayed here for 3 nights between christmas and new year and could not have felt any more welcome. Sally and Serge are great hosts and very helpful. The property is lovely and the breakfasts great. A pool was being planned when we were there and that would have be good as it was very hot. There is a communal bbq which was excellent and very convenient after a day wine tasting. Location is also good being about 1km from the centre of dunsborough and a 5 min walk to the beach. We would definately stay here again but would probably just book the standard room, we had a spa on this trip but didn't use it. All in all a really good find.

Room Tip: we had the spa room as thats all that was left, next time we would go for the non spa as we didnt us...

we arrived at Newberry Manor for a 3 day stay. we were pleasantly surprised by the stunning quaint exterior. We were greeted by Co-owner Serge who was one of the most lovliest people i've met! he gave us a full tour and has a wonderful sense of humour. he also recommended plenty of places to visit, which we took up and thoroughully enjoyed.

the room was beautiful. Extremely spacious and very nicely decorated. The spa bath tub was AMAZING!

we also met Sally, Serges partner and co-wner, who also, was a truly lovely lady!

i cannot recommend Newberry Manor enough! it was such an enjoyable stay and i will DEFINITELY be going back. they are in the process of building a pool too!

thank you! Annabelle & Lewis

Thank you so much for such a lovely review. You guys rocked! You came from mother England and brought along with you a full bag of smiles and laughter. It was brilliant to meet you and when you come next we shall pick the best day to go snorkeling together. We hope the remainder of your trip is a success. Take care and keep in touch!

I only stayed for 1 night, however I was able to appreciate the ammenities and location that Newberry Manor had to offer. Both Sally and her Husband were extremely friendly and offered many tips on the local attractions. They are located close to the beach and I was able to jog down tot he coast and enjoy a run looking out across beautiful water and the natural landscape.

The rooms are massive and the bathrooms are as large as my living room at home! Plenty of room to lay out luggage and still ahve space to walk around.

The breakfast menu which was included in the price is fantastic. The omlette that had was first rate. I could swear that the cook was french! (which he was)

As I was on business the only thing that would of made the stay perfect as opposed to brilliant was that I needed some sort of desk to work on in my room. I was offered the office which I graciously accepted so it wasn't a huge drama. More of a blip.

I'll be staying here again.

Thanks.

Nic.

Thank you so much for this lovely review Nic. It was a pleasure meeting you and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It is great that although you were on a business trip, you managed to go for a jog along the coast. It is so beautiful. As you are into sport, you may want to know that Dunsborough and its immediate vicinity are hosting numerous sports events throughout the year: iron man, anaconda adventure event, Xadventure race (taking place in March 2013) to name a few.
We shall look forward to seeing you again.

Newberry Manor is an exceptionally well appointed guest house. Serge and Sally Le Goueff are so friendly and attentive. Both are extremely passionate about the welfare and comfort of their guests and ensure everything is just right. Breakfasts are superb (their smoothies are brilliant!). Attention to detail is great down to the basket full of chocolates next to the port bottle and glasses in the sitting room. With the installation of a swimming pool, (about to commence), it will be even nicer although it is so nice now even without a pool. We will most definitely stay there again. Defintely Five Stars!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Orchid room upstairs. Brilliant with its own balcony overlooking the garden. Bed is...
