This was the worst place we stayed during our 2 week trip across WA. The first, and only, morning a large roach fell from the ceiling. Need I say anymore about this place? You can find better...try a B&B just outside of town.

Spent one night here, we booked it because of it's location and because it was cheap,
Location was great, right in the middle of main st in Margaret River. Shops and restaurants on each side.
We stayed above the pub, was a Sat night and pretty noisy untill about 11pm. But that was to be expected. The room was nothing to right home about, carpet was stained and I didn't want to walk barefoot on it, the bed wasn't very comfy and the blanket was 2 sheets with a doona with no cover between them, didn't like that. The bathroom wasn't visibly dirty but I still wore flip flops in the shower just in case. The room smelt funny as well.
The window coverings were great - made the room nice and dark which provided a good sleepin.

I think perhaps the suites out the back are a lot nicer?

It did the job for us but I wouldn't reccommend staying above the pub if celebrating a special occassion. Much nicer places around.

We were here for 3 nights and booked a luxury room in the holiday suites. The room had a 'livingroom' area and a kitchenette. All very clean, but you had to wash your own utensils as it said on the sign. I don't trust other guests washing up so I re-washed some items myself (I'm picky). One less nice point was that the heater didn't work. The evenings and mornings were very cold due to the Autumn weather. After telling the lady at the reception the problem was fixed the same day. The main hotel building has a restaurant, wine bar and pub, all very nice! Pity they don't do breakfast! But being so centrally located it wasn't hard to find a nice breakfast place. I thought our room (or should I say suite?) was absolute value for money!

Great Hotel, nice rooms except for the fact that they had no airconditioning. They should definitely menion this on their website. We stayed in March for two nights and the temperature was in the early 30's and we got absolutley no sleep as we were so hot in the room, and I like the hot weather, but that was ridiculous.
As far as everything else went, fabulous. The restaraunt food was beautiful, we ate there on both evenings, the hotel bar was fun and a good atmosphere.
The rooms on the main road side were a little noisey but both rooms we had were clean and comfortable.
So if you don't mind not having airconditioning in the room, I would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: Ask for airconditioning

Location: Very good. Right in the middle of town, close to all the shops and restaurants.
Check in: Receptionist really nice, gave us map of area and all info that was needed (109 different wineries, taxi numbers, best restaurants, best places for breakfast [not provided at hotel])
Bar: Really nice. Good staff that obviously had a good regular client base (lots of banter over the bar). Great Beer Garden!
Room: Nice comfy rooms, fit the 'old hotel' mentality. Very cosy and bed was superb (best sleep in a hotel yet)
Restaurant: great food at good prices. Wine list was good for the area, wide variety of local wines. Food was very fresh and very well priced.

All in all: A great stay. At $120 per night, in the middle of Margs, with all the things someone could need…. Its very good value for money!

It is located right in the middle of MR town. The suites are located at the back of the main pub/dining area. It was not noisy and we had a good night’s sleep with the windows open. The hotel car park was right in front of the suites and it was only annoying when cars revved their engines in the early mornings.

We had the family suite with 3 adults & 1 teenager. It was very spacious and the toilet was separate from the bathroom. It had very basic kitchen facilities, with a microwave and small fridge. The queen size bed was in the main area with a bunk bed and single bed in a room adjacent to the main room.

I would recommend the restaurant as their prices were quite reasonable compared to similar places in the MR. The waitresses were also very friendly and helpful.

We paid $200 per night, which was the cheapest we could find that had decent facilities. I think we paid a good price as most rooms were booked out for the Easter holidays.

We have just recently come back from spending time at the awesome Margaret River Hotel & Holiday Suites for our fourth wedding anniversary. When we arrived at our very central destination the receptionist checking us in was absolutly delightful and answered every question we had with ease. Our room was immaculate, extremely clean and welcolming and the customer service along with the great food and wine list in the Resturant and Bar were fantastic! I highly recommend this Hotel if your thinking about getting away down south whether your a couple or a family as they are very accomodating for anyones needs.
