We stayed there in late January 2013 over a couple of nights. The rooms are comfortable, and the bathroom with the spa is lovely. The hosts are extremely welcoming, and the owner, Dirk, is extremely knowledgeable about the local wineries and sights. Definitely listen to Dirk's recommendations -- he didn't steer us wrong. He's also a pretty great breakfast cook. Loaring is in a prime position to act as a base whilst you explore the Margaret River Region.
