We have just returned from a weekend in the Belvedere Spa Bungalow and can't wait to go back. Close to Perth, ie. not too much driving on a Friday after work, all bedding and towels supplied, and the comforts of home in the forest at a reasonable cost. The spa was great (towels supplied), the showers were hot, beds comfortable...

This would have to be one of the best B&B's I have ever stayed in. Lynda and Peter are the most amazing hosts. One of us was in a wheelchair and this was so well catered for. Food superb, beds fantastic, scenery gorgeous, company wonderful. Highly recommended and I can only say Well Done.

My boyfriend recently took me away for my birthday and we stayed in one of the spa cabins. The cabin was fully equipped with everything we needed and lots of little extras and touches to make it super homely. There were girlie magazines, a coffee pod machine and lots of unique memorabilia. The wood burning stove kept the cabin cosy...

Thanks for coming to stay with us. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that all the little extras were welcome. We welcome feedback so we can keep getting better. New fire for that cabin on the horizon so next visit you will be even warmer! Cheers.

The bed was sooo comfy! Great outdoor heated spa which we made good use of, and a pot belly stove in the middle of the room which made the place very cosy. The deciding factor was that we were able to take the dog with us, she had a great time also and made friends with the two little dogs...

We had originally booked a weekend away that we had to cancel at the last minute due to unforseen circumstances. Lynda and Peter were most accomodating in understanding and changing the booking. We were then able to enjoy a wonderful weekend in the most relaxing surroundings complete with wood fire, hot spa and spacious accomodation.

We decided to have a mid week break and for a change headed for the hills instead of south to the usual Margaret River area. It was a glorious drive through the hills, everything was so green. We stopped off in York as we hadn't been there for a while. Great town and heaps of history. We arrived mid afternoon...

Just spent an amazing weekend at Black Wattle Retreat in the Belvedere Cottage. From the moment we (friend and I) drove in the gate looking at the quirky little sites along the way I had a good feeling about this place.

Thank you Sian and Simon for coming to stay. I wish you had mentioned the spa, its so simple to turn it down a notch. I generally show people at check in but as it was a last minute arrival and I was not there, we skipped that part. p.s. my name is LYNDA. See you again

Instruction were very helpful. We stayed here when we had a hot air balloon flight booked. Owner is lovely. We had a massive, well equipped house that would be prefect for a whole family. Loved walking around the surrounding bush. Beautiful, relaxing spa. What a great weekend! We will definitely be back :D

I have laboured over how to respond to this review. Quite simply, I made a mistake with the arrival date of the guests. I would NEVER not make arrangements to meet someone when they arrive, if I could not be here, I would organise for someone to do that job, its just manners. What these guests did was to break...
