Stonebarn is just off the South West Highway, about 3km along a well formed gravel road. It is a new private hotel set in a bushland setting overlooking the property's large dam.
The hotel is really like a very large home with downstairs a number of different public rooms and the bedrooms (with ensuites) upstairs. The downstairs areas all open up onto a large terrace with lovely views. Each bedroom has a balcony. Each room has a small kitchenette.
We stayed 2 nights as part of a tour around SW WA and this was by far the most luxurious accommodation we stayed in. The small staff were friendly and efficient. On the first night we ordered a cold platter in our room and the second night was a BBQ. The hotel serves their own brand wine which is very good and each room has a Nespresso machine. Breakfasts on the terrace were a highlight, delicious and very elegantly served.
There are a number of pleasant walks around the property set as it is in a plantation of young oak trees. Ducks on the dam, guinea fowl on the lawns and beautiful sunsets. Well worth a couple of days and a good base to visit Pemberton, Manjimup or Bridgetown.
