Candlelit spa bath, incredibly comfy king bed, modern well laid out spacious design. Beautiful lush gardens. Well located on Caves Road, Gilgara is a 20 minute drive to most of the best wineries and degustation restaurants. I couldn't image a better place for our week long stay. No phone service (Optus) meant a real break (there is wifi to stay...

My daughter was married at Gilgara Retreat in March 2016. The venue was perfect for everything we wanted. Beautiful setting, flexible and lovely accommodation for the family, wedding party and friends and a beautiful landscape as a backdrop. We returned with friends just a couple of weeks ago. Angus the proprietor and manager cannot do enough for you. The accommodation,...

I married my husband here and it was AMAZING and just 6 months later we couldnt resist coming down, just for a weekend getaway because it's such a beautiful place to be. Extremely good value especially the garden suites as they are five star if you ask me... Great location and as always Angus is so kind and helpful. Hoping...

Beautiful homestead with pretty garden. Angus, the host, is friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is simple but the fresh fruit salad is delicious. The open fireplace is great on cool evenings. Pleasant rooms.

We stayed at the Garden Suite for 5 nights. Although it is not a luxurious suite, the basics are there. The room is comfortable, meeting our expectations, based on the information from the Gilgara website and TripAdvisor reviews. Angus is really nice. After we made our booking, he emailed us with suggestions of what to do, where to go, where...

Attended a wedding here in March and was so impressed a group of us came back for the weekend. Great accommodation and Angus kindly allowed us to take over his kitchen. Nothing was too much trouble. This is a great location close to everything the region offers.

I don't usually take time to write review unless it's extremely horrible. In this instance, the horror is almost beyond words... My friends and I decided to go for a short weekend break to visit Margaret River. I made a booking for the two of us on booking.com and our other two friends made a separate booking directly with the...

Very clean and modern self contained room. The large sunken bath was fab! The kitchenette was a little sparsely furbished but we made do. The gardens were absolutely beautiful and Angus our lovely host had great recommendations. Would stay here again and try the homestead rooms next time.

Gilgara (B&B retreat) is set on some gentle green fields that makes you want to lie on the green field on a nice cool sunny day with your fave songs playing or just that quiet moment with that special someone. Location: In terms of travel duration, it took us approximately about 3hrs 30mins drive from Perth airport (with a pit-stop...

We've been to Gilgara 3 times now and the breathtaking property never disappoints. Angus the delightful owner bends over backwards to accommodate our every desire, and the accommodation is always spotless. Beautifully appointed rooms and living areas make this a regular getaway for us, and we'll be going for many years to come. It's in a great spot in Margaret...
