“10 out of 10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

This hidden gem is within easy reach of the wineries and restaurants of the region. That is assuming you can drag yourself away from the tranquil surrounds of the retreat. This is the perfect romantic escape for couples, young and old(er) and a wonderful place to relax, unwind and enjoy a spa, the open wood fire and listen to the sounds of nature. The staff are wonderful - incredibly friendly and full of local knowledge and useful recommendations. Don't let a sleep-in cause you to miss breakfast - a great treat to start the day, but only from 8-10. Enjoy!

Lovely setting and surroundings, staff were friendly, breakfast was lovely. We stayed in a loft suite - the rooms were large and spacious. The loft is in the main house so it can be loud during breakfast preparations but the benefit is you are have easy access to the communal areas. Downstairs are 2 lovely lounge areas with a great DVD selection and open fire places - perfect with a bottle of Empire Estate wine. The only fault was that the beds and pillows were not very comfortable.

We were greeted at the front door by the manager who explained everything clearly and provided us all the details regarding the retreat and even offered to make reservations for us for dinner.
The retreat was located amongst gorgeous native bushland, close to the local town where there were numerous dining options and activities to undertake. The retreat had carefully created a folder with all the information, menu's from the local dining areas, with maps of where they were. The range of dvd's was excellent, the jacuzzi situated in a lovely location. Our room was a courtyard suite, with a lovely kingsize bed that was so comfortable with beautiful soft sheets. The retreat was very quiet and peaceful, the spa treatments were absolutely fabulous, i'd have to say the best i've ever had and the therapists were friendly and very helpful.

We had three nights over the June long week-end at Empire Retreat and could have stayed for the week!! A wonderful place to relax and unwind, whether you are in the great outdoor spa or walking around the grounds or simply sitting and reading on the deck. Tina, Claire and the rest of the staff were warm and friendly and got you settled in quickly. We had a courtyard room which had everything we needed.
Highly recommended

We really loved our get-away at Empire. It's so beautifully decorated in old teak furniture and reds and browns.. very earthy and visually appealing! the breakfasts were deluxe and the service very friendly and helpful. I especially loved the warm spa in the evenings.. watching the sun set over the trees and hills.. stunning.. and so relaxing!! It was also great that we had SBS coverage in the room as it was FIFA time!! so we had to watch all the games!! would reccommend getting the platter on the first night too.. a great way to relax and pick at food and wine while unwinding... very yummy!!

From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. The lady we met at reception was just lovely.
Myself and two girlfriends stayed in a Loft Suite in the Farmhouse. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. The furnishings were very well thought out. It was great we could borrow DVD's from downstairs as well!
We visited the day spa which was lovely but very expensive. The therapists all lived locally and were able to recommend places to go. The location of Empire Retreat is really good because it is nestled between lots of wineries and still close to Dunsborough where the shopping is very good.
I recommend the outdoor jacuzzi - it was fabulous! There is also a large day bed tucked away amongst the bamboo and sitting there was just amazing.
The breakfasts which are included with the room are very nice. The service was a little slow and there was a small selection but was very good all the same.
The only downside is the retreat is quite expensive and it would have been nice to stay a bit longer than just two nights. Also the absense of being able to order dinner in the room is a little sad or even if they had a shuttle bus to Lamonts for dinner it would have been nice.
