Loved this spot. Absolutely lovely accommodation with full kitchen and nice bath. It has air-conditioning, but we never needed it. There was a lovely breeze both days. Just off the water, we had a lovely view from the yard. Great spot for anyone with kids with nice playground.

A great place for a holiday. We travelled with a group of friends all retirees and on our arrival were immediately made welcome by the Manager. The accommodation was first class with all facilities provided (food and drinks excepted)and the view from our cottage was fantastic. Access to shopping and all sightseeing were a short drive away. Definitely recommended for... More

Hired two cottages between 10 friends for five days and had a wonderful time. Both cottages were well appointed, extremely neat and clean and about 4 kms from town on Frenchman's Bay so very peaceful. Would thoroughly recommend Lilacs for families and anyone wanting to get away from it all for a quiet holiday. Owners were very helpful and left... More

Arrived at the reception and sense the staff had no idea how to be nice. Met the owner, found him to be obnoxious to say the least.... Rooms very average and certainly not luxury. Overrated accommodation. Find better for the money. UNRECOMMENDED.

Friendly staff, great views over the bay. Ive stayed twice i loved it so much. If you are staying in Albany this is the place you must stayed at. The best accomodation in Albany by far, and very well priced. Lots of walking to do on the great track around the bay. Also some play equipment for the kids.

We came here to start the Bibbulmun Track after cycling over from Tassie. We loved our stay here and loved the owners who introduced themselves and bend over backwards to make our stay pleasurable and good. All was perfect to begin with in any case, but still Joe and Annette managed to really impress us with their generosity and kindness.... More

We had a cottage right on the river which could fit 8 people!! Such a surprise that a place can hold so many people. Parents downstairs while us kids were upstairs. So glad there were two TVs, a tip is to bring something that can play DVDs as the top tv doesn't have a DVD player. 6 of us travelling... More

This is by far one of the nicest, cleanest and best located holiday accommodation in Albany. We statyed for 4 days over Easter, and it was amazing. Watching the sunrise over the harbour, while having a coffee was a highlight. It was brilliant. The owners are very caring, and look after you very well. It isn't located to far from... More

This was our 3rd stay at Lilac cottages, Shared cottage 2? with some friends on 2nd visit, and had cottage 3 to ourselves this time. 2 had 2 double bedroom and 2 bathrooms, so was great for sharing. 3 is closer to the water so was more convenient to launch our windsurfers from. It's been recently renovated and tastefully furnished,... More
