Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

During a couple of weeks travelling around WA we have ended up in all sorts of places. Allot of these were very comparatively expensive for a family of 4 and generally disappointing. Having not made bookings ahead of time we ended up with what was available. The Margaret River Motel booked directly from their website is one of the cheapest and also the best we ended up staying at. There was nothing to fault: comfortable beds good coffee in room fresh milk, cookies, plates and cutlery and it was clean, spacious and comfortable. Friendly helpful staff with eating recommendations and general advice like a walking short cut into the town centre they also included guest discounts at a couple of restaurants in town. Very happy, thank you.

Reception was delightful and friendly. We have stayed in many motels here and eastern states and this is one of the few outstanding motels. bottled water and fresh milk including light milk on arrival. On opening the room door was delighted at the size of the room the entry has a cupboard with plates,cutlery kettle and toaster. A very comfortable bed and pillows. Very large room and bathroom including a spa bath. We will certainly stay again and highly recommended the motel. We have paid more for a lot less. Well done to the owners and their team

Lovely clean and tidy room with plenty of parking, plenty of power sockets, comfy bed - close to town centre. We stayed over WA Day long weekend, COVID-19 restrictions recently allowed stays. Contactless checkin with key was already in our room and check-out was just to drop off key in box by reception great. Room Service upon request.
Draw backs a) no microwave to reheat or heat takeaways etc., b) room didnt really heat up due to location of a/c unit c) a cold draft came in the door to balcony right by the bed d) TV shelf too high to view from couch, awful images to watch at this angle e) front porch light globe not working

I stayed here for work for a week, the unit was lovely and clean, spacious, and quiet. Semi bushland around the unit, sitting on the balcony in the mornings with a cuppa watching the birds come and go was so relaxing. The unit had the most luxuriously comfortable king-size bed, super soft pillows, and pristine crisp white linen, with a walk-in robe area, a very spacious bathroom clean and functional, Kitchenette area is an excellent idea with a small bar fridge and crockery and cutlery to use, however, it could have a small microwave in it. Within walking distance into town about 3 minutes.

Had plenty of communication with the hotel before we got here, which was great.
They sent directions, reminders of what to pack and most importantly, directions! As it turns out, even I couldn't get lost!

The room was immaculate. The bed was lovely and comfortable (with the extra blankets I had asked for). Yes, yes, Margs is a wee bit cold in August lol.

The spa bath was beautifully clean - even had a sticker to prove it had been chemically cleaned.

The complimentary tea and coffee provided really impressed me - loads of them and milk in the fridge.
Milk.
Fresh milk.
Not the useless tubs of ugh , fresh milk!!

That may seem like something negligible to some, but to a British person, having a nice cuppa on arrival is key!

Thank you Margaret River Motel, we will be back in summer !
Regards,
Jacqui

We stayed here for one night and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and how luxurious it was. The room, kitchen area and bathroom were spotless. The bathroom was a great size and was all kitted out. The swimming pool was clean and tidy and we had great fun in it during our short stay. Beware it is only open 9am until 4pm. The rear outside area could probably be doing with some maintenance and upkeep as there was gravel, stones and leaves all over the rear patio area to the back of each room. A leaf blower and some weed killer is all that’s needed here I’d imagine. At $225 for one night it was probably on the expensive side, regardless we plan to return to this motel to make a weekend of it in future.

My wife, my baby and I checked in this motel and we have got room 10 Merlot. Contact less check in was super easy. They also sent us a text the day before to give us more information about check in/out.

As we entered the room, we were impressed by how spacious the bedroom is. We like the fact that every bedroom has it's own carpark right at the door step so it makes loading and unloading very easy.

The bedroom has a workstation for me to do work, a tv, a bar fridge, a spacious wardrobe, a couch, etc. There's also air conditioning and ceiling fan.

We tried to walk over to the main street and it only took us less than 10 minutes. There's also a bbq area and a pool.

We highly recommend this place if you are looking for something comfortable and good value for money.

Spent a couple of days in Margaret River and stayed at the Margaret River Motel.
A quaint motel situated not far from the main street, very quiet with plenty of rooms ( all named after wines!)
Our room was a generous size, very clean although a little dated. No kitchen although there are tea and coffee on offer, and a toaster is provided.
Huge bathroom, nice comfortable bed, and a very short walk to the Main Street. The one negative was the supplied hair dryer was in need of replacing and wasn't overly efficient.
Very good service from the receptionist, who was very knowledgeable and was extremely friendly.
Enjoyed our stay, and they are in the process of updating rooms to bring them a little more up to date.

Good location - walkable to downtown Margs. Accommodation is pretty basic with the furnishings and finish quite dated. We had a two queen bed room with a separate sitting room along with a small buffet area with cutlery and plates/glasses. WiFi was poor - we were at the back of the property and the signal did not reach us consistently. Overall just ok - the main plus is the location.

We stayed in a king room for 4 nights that was spacious, clean and very reasonably priced. A nice comfortable bed, great water pressure and serviced daily. Central location within a 5 or 10 minute walk to town. The staff are also very friendly and accommodating that always makes a difference when you first check-in. I would certainly stay again when in the area next and would also recommend to others who are considering this type of accommodation.
