Top class Resort with excellent fittings throughout - but main bedroom could have done with a small dressing table and bathrooms need more storage space/shelving. Picky, I know, but hey if you are paying top dollar, you should expect it all. However, we will be back...

We had our wedding recently at Willy Bay resort and our guests and us loved everything about it. The accommodation is luxurious and gorgeous. The staff are so friendly, professional, and super helpful. We would highly recommend it for anyone thinking of having a wedding here.

Very nice cottage, spacious with all the amenities. We got a good view overlooking the water pond and garden. BBQ area was well placed for us to enjoy our BBQ experience. Only flip side, it has no restaurant that can serve breakfast especially for the price it charges. Not much staff around to help you out. Its best suited for...

Willy Bay Resort is set in a beautiful location, with views of lakes and vineyards. The studio chalet we stayed at was pristine, modern, spacious and elegant. The chalet was fully equipped with a deep spa bath and state of the art amenities (washer, dryer, dishwasher, big screen tv, bbq). Our two night stay was very relaxing and comfortable!

Cannot fault the accommodation at Willy Bay. All the settings and facilities are top notch and great for a luxurious base while visiting Margaret River or to stay in and get away from it all. Thanks for making the trip enjoyable for our families, the joint rooms for travelling families is a great idea.

Had a great stay here in the king bed chalet! Each unit has nice privacy with a vineyard view. One thing that needs to improve to get a 5-star is their wifi. It is very slow, and drops out frequently; requiring you to re-sign in much too often. That's the only critique though. The units have a fully-equipped kitchenette inside...
