Warm and cosy room. Located near to the Margaret City Centre. If you plan to cook or BBQ, do note there is no washing basin for used cutleries. No washing is allowed at the toilet sink. But they do provide daily utensils washing. Will definitely come back again.

This place is conveniently located near the city center (¬2-3min drive). My friend and I always enjoyed the cleaniness and well-prepared breakfast basket. The owner is also very friendly and amiable. Be sure to check out this place if you're looking for a place near the city center.

Went on trip to sight-see in the area via Perth to Yallingup to Margaret River. Couldn't ask for a lovelier place to stay. Well-appointed rooms, quaint garden area with individual patio, and lovely owners. Wish we had more days to stay there. Highly recommend.

Probably the best motel that I had stayed in my trip from Melbourne to Perth in April/May 2016. Denise was very kind and helpful. The room I stayed in was in excellent shape and the place is in a very good location. If I'm going to Margaret River again, then I will stay at this motel again.

We were looking for a place with walking tracks nearby and found it here, originally we were only going to overnight but Denise sold the area and attractions so we based ourselves here for 2 nights. Room is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and recently refurbished you can't do better 😊

Very comfy beds, pretty garden, prettiest part of town, easy access to everything. A bit of noise when other guests arrived but not really the hoteliers fault. The owners were very helpful with local knowledge and helped us score a free bottle of wine.
