“"Very welcoming"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality offered at Newberry Manor. Sally & Serge looked after us from the minute we walked in offering us lots of local knowledge - particularly with suggestions of places to eat! The rooms are beautifully appointed with great attention to detail. They even managed to find the Foxtel channel for one of our very keen rugby supporters! The breakfast was delicious and the port and chocolates also! Lots of interesting conversation with our hosts was a great way to start and finish our day and we feel we have made some new friends in Sally & Serge. We look forward to visiting again when we are next in this magnificent corner of Australia.

Hi Meredith, it was an absolute delight to have you and your family to stay. Thanks for taking the time to write us your lovely review and apologies I'm late responding - we headed off for a lovely catch up with our family in France and the UK for a few weeks (though delicious French food has pushed me further away from a slim-line wedding dress!). We definitely hope to see you again when you're next in WA. All the best, Sally and Serge.

Location to beach and town are good. Parking bays for each room. Would definitely recommend Newberry Manor. Thanks for a very relaxing weekend Sally and Serge

Enjoyed three nights and two days at Newberry Manor, Dunsborough with daughter and her boyfriend. It was the first experience of a B&B for the young couple and Newberry Manor has set the bar high! Located close to town, this charming home exudes the natural warmth and generous spirit of the hosts, Serge and Sally. The bedrooms are luxurious with good quality linen, comfortable king sized beds, a small walk-in wardrobe and a minibar stocked with reasonably priced snacks. The bathrooms have a shower, a separate toilet area and a big spa. With thoughtful touches everywhere ... including candles and champagne flutes in the spa area and towelling robes. The breakfasts were delicious and generous The breakfast trifle and crepes a huge hit with us! The young couple enjoyed their smoothies and cooked breakfasts and I enjoyed the excellent bread and homemade jams. We appreciated the warmth of the wood fire on our return from a rainy day of sightseeing. Looking forward to returning soon!

Newberry Manor is ideally located for exploring Margaret River/ Dunsborough region.
Our hosts Serge and Sally were very friendly, helpful but unobtrusive.
Our room (Hibiscus) was extemely spacious, very clean and comfortable with tea /coffee making facilities, a well stocked mini bar with local wines.
Breakfast was superb, and the comprehensive menu included homemade jams, local breads and tasty smoothies.
At the end of a busy day expolring the region you are greeted by a log fire,chocolates and port in the guest living room.
We would highly recommend Newberry Manor.

Newbury Manor is just far enough away from the bustle of Dunsborough central to be wonderfully quiet at night despite being in the suite fronting the street. All impeccably clean and I loved the touch of having fresh flowers in the room. Breakfast was delightful and the menu comprehensive. Proximity to the wine region and the beaches makes Newbury Manor an ideal spot to explore from and return to recuperate for the next day. Sally and Serge are very gracious and welcoming. I thoroughly recommend Newbury Manor.

Relaxing, comfortable, clean, spacious, welcoming .... Sally and Serge have made Newberry Manor a wonderful place to stay and if we head for the Margaret River wineries in the future, then this will be our base. We were in Dunsborough this time for our son's wedding at Bunker Bay, just a short drive away. Sally gave us a very warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble throughout our stay. We loved our Rose Suite and the freedom to come and go as we pleased. Fresh flowers in the rooms and decorating the breakfast plates was delightful and being gently woken by an exotic bird dawn chorus was lovely. Seeing the two guinea pigs running round the garden was a treat too! Highly recommended.

It was an absolute pleasure having you both to stay - great to hear you enjoyed your stay. I hope returning to the UK wasn't too chilly after the sunny skies of Dunsborough!
