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... More

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... More

We use Gilgara for our Balance Breaks (health retreats) several times a year and absolutely love it. Angus is so accommodating, the grounds are stunning, the modern garden suite accommodation is great for our guests wanting something a little more luxe, huge bathrooms with a spa bath whilst still remaining comfy. We also book out the whole homestead - which... More

the gardens looked lovely so we opted for a garden suite,which we then discovered is set well away from parking area,so arrivals etc can be a hassle in inclement weather or for disabled.Bathrooms are huge whilst rest of living space is cramped.Bed faces out to very high brick wall,so eyeshades are provided!! Only tv provided is in bedroom wall unit... More

Beautiful bushland setting with modern conveniences. Far enough out of town to be quiet but close enough to enjoy everything the region has to offer. Angus was lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

We stayed at Gilgara over several days when it was the venue for our daughter's wedding. From start to finish the owner, Angus, was generous, accommodating and flexible, allowing us to make use of the grounds and facilities to provide a magical experience for our daughter and her guests. We booked out the whole place and nothing we wanted to... More

We were greeted by the very friendly host Angus who showed us to our room for 3 nights. I must admit I was a little disappointed in the room, with nothing standing out as a major problem, but a lot of little things such as lack of wifi in room, no full hanging wardrobe so I couldn't hang my long...

We’ve been lucky enough to stay at Gilgara Retreat several times throughout the last year while we were planning our wedding down south. From our very first stay when we first met Angus, we have been impressed by his warmth and cheeriness, and helpful advice on things to do around the area. We’ve stayed in both the house and the...

Spent two nights here. Originally booked into a room in the homestead, which we found a tad dark and depressing when we got there - no one was around at all and the atmosphere wasn't very welcoming. Also (our fault for not checking) our room didn't have air con, and it was a hot day, so we asked Angus by... More
