“Fantastic Location, Great Way to Relax!!”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

A colleague of mine who is a Chef had stayed at this property previously, and she recommended that I should stay here on a recent trip to Margaret River. I found the property to be in a fantastic location, close to the beach and everyone who was about the resort seem to be very relaxed, both guests and staff alike. Tania on the Front Desk was very welcoming and couldn't do any more to assist us. We stayed in a very comfortable 2 Bedroom Apartment which had great views towards the beach. Could have easily stayed longer if it was possible for us to do so but I guess that means we will just have to come and stay again sometime soon...

Room Tip: Request a room on the 2nd floor if possible

Not bad value for a family of 4 and the spa bath kept the little children amused. Walls are very thin and the noise from the people above us was invasive yet I don't believe they were very loud. Lovely bedding and fluffy towels, pillows not great. Cooking facilities OK but tired. Pretty clean overall until looked at closely - a massive cobweb on the A/c unit for example. The layout only allowed for 1 toilet and the bathroom, nothing en suite which is a drawback. Swimming pool attractive but incredibly cold as seem most to be in Australia. Pub/restaurant very good value as was the other local restaurant

Room Tip: Stay upstairs, spa bath is fun, try to get a sea view

There was a family group of us staying, 18 in total (13 adults, 5 kids) for 7 nights. During our stay Lee the Manager went out of his way to ensure we were comfortable. The accommodation was the best we have experienced in Margaret River so far, with spacious spa villas. It's location is ideal for exploring the tastes of Margaret River from wineries to walks along the beach. The on site bar / restaurant - Gnarabar was amazing - daily happy hours were a highlight, and the Mexican themed night was sensational. All staff members at this resort delivered outstanding customer service and we will be staying here again on our next trip down South!

Room Tip: Spa villas!!

We came to the area for a few days of surfing and wine tasting. We were disappointed with the accommodation which was on offer in the Margaret River area in general. We finally decided on this resort in Gnarabup Beach as there didn't seem to be anything else available so close to the beach. The unit was very average and small but the view was amazing. The king size bed was really two singles pushed together and unfortunately they were not of the same height!! The towels in the bathroom were really nice. Staff were helpful and friendly.

For dinner we ate in Margaret River town and the restaurant at the resort (average and expensive), but the Sea Gardens restaurant in Prevelly was superb, the best meal we have had so far on our road trip around the south west.

We stayed as a family group of 18 ranging from 4 to 70 years old. The accommodation was perfect for our needs with very comfortable and well appointed villas in a fantastic location just a few minutes walk to the beach in the middle of all the wineries and other attractions. The service from all staff was excellent at all times and the local manager Lee is a true host. The on site gnarabup restaurant/bar is the ideal place to hang out with the cheapest drinks in WA, a great menu and very good quality meals. Happy hour is worth leaving the vineyards for with kids meals for $6 that would satisfy the fussiest chef and a mouth watering menu for the rest. In general the resort is very quiet, safe and well maintained, we could relax knowing the kids were not far away and had the perfect holiday.

This is gonna be a conflicting review - we stayed in the Spa Townhouse located just behind the reception. It's a very nice double storey house with 2 spa bedrooms downstairs with living, kitchen and extra toilet upstairs. It has most of the cutleries you need, a washing machine, dryer, TV etc. Very clean, very comfortable except the rooms are a bit small. The jaccuzi was nice. We cooked dinner there and it was almost home away from home.

However, the power went out at 11pm. We called the reception because we thought it was the fuse and couldn't find the switch board. The guy came over and instead of offering a torch light or an explanation, he just said he couldn't do anything because the whole compound went blackout and just pray to God.

The power came back only at 7:30am next morning. It was a chaos because my husband sleeps with CPAP (breathing machine) . We also bought meat for the next day which went off. if we knew we'd be sleeping in the dark and my husband without breathing assistance, we wouldn't pay nearly $300 just to spend a night there.

It a SHAME that the place was so nice yet the customer service was -1. Next day when we check out, the lady at the reception just said she couldn't do anything about it. We will NOT return.

Thank you for your feedback on the Resort. We are glad that you enjoyed the Townhouse and that it felt like home. When the power went off it was off for the region, it was not an internal issue. Western Power was contacted to find out when the power would be reinstated, they could not confirm a time. The manager was not informed that your husband required a breathing machine to help sleep when you called about the power problem, all that was mentioned was that you wanted to watch TV, If this was coveyed to him he would have immediately found alternative accommodation if needed. Fortunately power problems are a rarity in the region.

Again thank you for your feedback.

Great location, view and scenery. Close to the beach and River, great for family weekend away. Clean and modern room facilities, with little kitchen if you are keen to cook. Quick check in and out, friendly staff with good knowledge of the area. The one and only disappointed thing for the stay was the pub/bar was too noisy after 10 pm on that weekend.
