“Best meal in WA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2011

We had been looking for place a luxury weekend away from Perth for a long time, and finally found it at Lazy River. The accommodation was high quality and clean, with a lovely view over fields. We had a fun and relaxing couple of hours kayaking (they have 4 to borrow) on the river, which is at the bottom of the garden. But, the best part of the stay was the food. It was incredible. In the early evening the hosts bring the most amazing hand made canapes and a bottle of champagne to enjoy on the patio. A bit later on they brought the dinner over, one course at a time. The food was easily the best we have had in WA. Fresh asparagus soup to start, with the highlight being the ocean trout with a lovely sauce, very tasty potatoes, and a large fresh salad, followed by an extremely rich and tasty chocolate, prune (soaked in liqueur) terrine. The breakfast hamper the next morning was also impressive. For a relaxing and indulgent weekend away, this is the place.

I surprised my partner with a night at Lazy River and it was the perfect getaway for us. The room was clean, spacious and homely. The hosts brought our four course dinner to our room and set our table for us. They were friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The food was abundant! As someone who likes to get out and 'do stuff' my partner loved the tennis court and kayaks - both free to use whenever we pleased. As someone who likes to relax, I enjoyed the flat screen and large spa in the bathroom. The view out the glass doors was a green paddock with a couple of horses. The perfect getaway! Would definitely go back!

What an amazing find this place is. We went for my birthday and everything was perfect. The room is absolutely beautiful and private. The spa is massive and clean. The view is of beautiful greenery and horses, parrots, gallahs and guniea fowl feed and play. Such soothing surounds we were completely relaxed the minute we sat down on the verandah. At 6 Liz and Steve arrived with the most generous and delicious platter of canapés and a lovely bottle of bubbly. We couldn't believe how much effort was put into these beautiful starters. They set our table inside with linens and a candle and then did a turndown service on our bed which I found to be a great touch. Then 3 courses of the most divine food brought to our room course by course. You can't find this kind of experience anywhere I felt so spoilt. We didn't have to worry about a thing. Breakfast was also delivered that evening. More beautifully home made foods we enjoyed in the comfy bed. Liz and Steve have thought of everything here and it was truly a magnificent experience. We will be back.
Kat and Michael.

This place was fantastic with a wonderful location.
The owners provided us with an excellent romantic meal made to our requirements and the nearby winery was great, not only because of the service, but also the fact that is was only a 3 min walk away.
It makes a wonderful romantic weekend away from it all for all couple young and old.

We stopped off for a night at Lazy River on our way to Perth from Margaret River. From the moment we arrived we knew we had stumbled across somewhere special. We were made so welcome by the charming hosts Liz & Steve who greeted us with smiles, home-made canapes & drinks, we felt totally relaxed. The cabins are tastefully decorated with everything you need, including iPod docking stations, quality magazines, luxury bath products, amazingly comfortable four poster beds with top quality linen & leather lounge. Later we had an amazing 3 course dinner brought to our cabin via their golf buggy where we sat on a white clothed candle lit table on our private verandah looking out across the green fields where the horses were grazing. My husband is a trained chef and was blown away by Steve's amazing culinary delights, their attention to detail from start to finish was above and beyond. In the morning we took a stroll down to the river where we found, tennis courts & picnic tables, absolutely beautiful. When leaving Liz & Steve at Lazy River we felt like we had just stayed with some old friends that we had not seen for ages, it was truly an experience we would definitely want to encounter again. Thank you both for an amazing experience, we will be back!

My husband and I have just spent a most memorable night away at this stunning boutique B & B. The accommodation was lovely and Liz and Steve the hosts,deliver a truly unique experience which can only be described as 5 star dining and one that every one staying here should be a part of.
Dinner is an optional extra to the champagne and canapés delivered to your door at 5.30 p.m together with the other half of the next mornings delicious continental breakfast basket.(The first half is already in the fridge)
My husband and I have added the food from here onto our `most memorable meal from around the world` list. It was flawless ............nothing else to say !!!

Thank you so much Liz and Steve, we will be singing your praises to everyone.
We just wish you had a restaurant that we could frequent to enjoy your food and hospitality more often.

Room Tip: All the rooms were lovely

From the moment the gates opened to Lazy River we breathed a huge sigh of relief - and immediate relaxation!
This gorgeous bush retreat - just a stones throw from Perth - is complimented by the wonderful hosts, Steve and Liz.
Our canapes and champagne at sunset were served in our room, before Steve and Liz set about delivering our 3 course dinner. DIVINE and enjoyed in the comfort of our bathrobes.
We will be back!
