Reviewed January 4, 2013

Execellent property at the lower end of the Margaret River townsite. Easy walking to shops and restaurants. Good off street parking, fiendly staff and well maintained units. We stayed during a recent run of very hot weather whilst the two bedroom unit had excellent air conditioning on the lower floor, the bedrooms just had ceiling fans and these were totally inadequate for a 40 degree temperature during our stay making sleeping very uncomfortable. Not withstanding this it was extreme weather conditions and we would stay at Margarets Forest again.

Terrific location, you can walk to any of the nearby restaurants, stroll through town etc. we have stayed here before and were happy to book again. The rooms are clean, well appointed and our kitchen area was well equipped. There are plenty of attractions nearby. There is a supermarket only a few minutes away if you want to cook. each apartment has a BBQ. It was very warm when we stayed, the downstairs area was well air conditioned and easy to keep cool, upstairs was like a sauna. The was no a/c upstairs and for two nights we sweltered. The ceiling fan didn't make any difference. There is a flimsy pedestal fan, but we won't book again during summer, at least not in that type of room. Given the cost of accommodation in the area at peak times I think this should be looked at.

Room Tip: Check the air-conditioning if you are booking in very hot weather

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend in October and it could not have been better. We saw positive reviews on here - and great pricing for what it seemed to offer - and were not disappointed. We stayed in a one bedroom unit and were extremely impressed by the facilities. The kitchen is actually a full kitchen, including a dishwasher, oven and stovetop, and there is a grill just outside the back door. You're also right in town, and just across the street from the visitor's centre, without dealing with the noise you get at other accomodations.

There were also tons of families around, with kids playing on the grass between the units and parents chatting over the BBQs.

This is definitely our new place to stay in Margs!

Just back from a 4 night stay. Could not be more impressed. it's incredibly clean, within a stones throw of everything u need in town and super friendly reception staff. We had 2 x2 bed units, 111 and 112 which were quiet and just across from reception. Upstairs can get pretty hot but there is portable air conditioning units available. very well equipped kitchen. Definitely stay again no hesitation!

This time I chose to stay at Margarets Forest Seviced Apartment from 25/12 to 28/12. On the day of arrival, because it was on Xmas Day, no one manned at the reception, so the key was placed in a locked box outside the reception office. The room assigned to me this time was Room 113 just opposite the reception office. The room was clean, big, and fully equipped with TV, DVD player, kitchen with all amenities such as oven, microwave, dishwasher...ironing board and iron...a dining table, a sofa...a king-sized bed...a toilet even with a jacuzzi. Though it was on ground floor and next to the main road, the noise of the traffic was minimal. It was within walking distance to the town centre where you could find a tourist information centre, Coles, Target and other shops and restaurants. One thing I was missed was that because I was arrived on Xmas Day, all shops, gas stations and restauarants in town were closed except a small shop selling fish n chips, kebab and burgers. I had to drive half an hour to Busselton to have my dinner and luckily could find a mini market selling grocery items and produces, so that I could buy milk, bread, greens, cheese, eggs, etc and made my breakfasts and lunches. If I had chance to visit Margaret River again in future, Margarets Forest would still my choice!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent stay with us. It is unfortunate that you had to go to Busselton for Christmas Dinner, we did send messages out to those staying over Christmas that it was advised to cater for supplies before arrival, as shops would be trading only limited hours, so I regret that you did not receive this message and hope it didn't taint your experience of Margaret River, which is an excellent food and wine destination for most of the year anyway. Wishing you safe travels and we look forward to being your host again in the near future. Happy New Year from the team here.

Stayed here for 3 nights (1-3 Dec 2012). The location is very good, on main street. Stayed in one of the 1BR spa apt, which overlooks the forest. very quiet and had a great rest. apt was as it looks in the picture, the whole place looks very new and well maintained. will stay here again if im here again.

Room Tip: Get a room that overlooks the forest.

Well situated on the main street in town. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The facilities in the 2 storey apartment we had were excellent. A family member had a studio apartment and the amenities in there were also very good.
