“Good location, quite expensive”
Reviewed April 13, 2008

When we arrived, we were really impressed by the location -literally right on the beach which was fab. We were slightly bemused by the fact that we didn't get to meet any staff, just our key selotaped to the door, which was a bit odd. It had quite extensive notes with the key so I presume this was quite normal. Our room was not massive (we went for the ocean room to get the balcony), but had a lovely four poster bed but then realised that are sea view was partial (a bit of the house is actually in the way) and the balcony is shared with the next door room. Bearing in mind that there was only one table with two chairs (and the balcony was only big enough for that) we felt really disappointed and a bit mislead by their website as we had paid extra for it. The first night we did get to use it (which meant our neighbours didn;t) but unfortunately for us (and the B&B owners) we had a very unusual couple their the second night who decided to sit out there with just towels on and smoking, ensuring that we were trapped in our room.

On the plus side, the bathroom was nice and the pool downstairs is lovely. Breakfast was ok, nothing massive or amazing. Again with other experiences of other hotels in Australia we realised this had been very expensive in comparison but we presumed we were paying for location.
There are some lovely restaurants just 5 mins walk away, but this is at least 15/20 min drive out of the city with no traffic.

Thanks for your comments. Unfortunately this guest didn't arrive at the time she promised, causing an envelope to be left out.
An ocean view room for $189 including gourmet cooked breakfast (see inclusions below) is the best deal along this coast. Perhaps if they'd turned up at breakfast time they would have seen how big it was.
The ocean room is 8.5 metres x 3 metres - very generous by B&B standards, so "size of room" is big.
The balcony with ocean views is also large and has extra chairs right there (if she had only looked). Sorry that we can't hand-pick fellow guests to your liking.
As for breakfast, other reviews show the truth - premium bacon, free range eggs, Margaret River yoghurt, fresh baked bread, fresh fruit salad, pure juices, Margaret River muesli, 6 cereals etc.
This alone is worth $50 a couple, so to suggest it's expensive for what's effectively $139 a night in a spacious room with an ocean view and four poster bed just isn't true.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Beach Manor's comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Friendly, helpful and generous hosts made our first visit to Perth very special. We will certainly be recommending this B & B to family and friends and hope to return in the not too distant future.

Our sincere thanks and best wishes to Erin, Rick, Jan and Staff.

PS - Great breakfasts!

We loved our stay at Beach manor. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The beautiful, tropical pool area with sun beds to relax on was perfect! We were able to relax by the pool and then head to beautiful Scarborough beach just across the road! Perfect location.

Our room was lovely with a comfy bed and ocean view balcony! We were able to relax on the balcony or by the pool or watch a dvd in our room or in the large screen tv in the guest area.

Breakfast was soo yummy! Each day we loved the Margaret River yoghurt and muesli with fresh fruit salad, topped off with homemade bacon, eggs and tomato!

Our hosts were so welcoming and helpful. We not only enjoyed chatting to them but also the other lovely guests staying there too. We loved the fact that it wasn't a big resort as the pool was never overcrowded and it was a lot more relaxing. We will definitely return and recommend to all our friends. We had the best time. Thanks so much Rick and Erin!

Beach Manor is a magnificent little bnb right across from the beach in Scarborough! The decor and character of the place is second to none. This is warmly supported by fantastic owner Erin and her friendly staff. The rooms are just beautiful, we stayed in the bella vista room, unique with its own michaelangelo print on the rooftop, got to be seen to be believed!

The atmosphere at beach manor is very relaxed, calm and friendly. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting this type of stay while in Perth. Great restaurants and the awesome brighton beach are just footseps away. Perth has it all, so does Beach Manor.
We will be back, sooner rather than later I hope.

Just returned from a 3 week trip around Australia and our Perth accomodation for 6 nights was Beach Manor.

The rooms (we stayed in) are clean and very good sizes with shower/toilet facilities and TV + DVD player. The pool area is great too.

The hosts are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful and we appricated them allowing us to arrive at 4am!!.

The beach (and BBQ area) is just 1 minute away with restaurants, cafes and shops just 2-3 minutes walk away. Transport to Perth or Hilary’s Boat Yard is frequent and reliable.

We would recommend this place to everyone staying in/near Scarborough Beach.

We stayed at the Beach Manor B&B for two nights in November. We wished we were staying longer!
Not normally frequenters of B&B's we were delighted at the easy going experience provided by the hosts.
Breakfast was a gourmet treat every morning with no request too difficult.
Our late arrival at 11pm also caused no problems and the Beach room we stayed in had a private terrace overlooking the ocean.
The decor of the entire place was magnificent.
On our departure Erin & Rick provided us with great tips for our trip down to the Margaret River region which came in very handy.
This will be our first port of call for future trips to Perth.
