The hosts make this motel. Very friendly and gave us all the tips on what we wanted to do in Margaret River and beyond. If not for the advice to travel to Gracetown for a lovely walk by the ocean we certainly would not have gone there. Neat and tidy rooms, however, we were disturbed early each morning by traffic...

Many thanks Lyn for your lovely comments and we pleased that you enjoyed our advice. Its a shame that you didn't book a room at the rear of the Motel overlooking the back garden, which as Trip Advisor reviews say is the quietest part of the Motel.

Large (by motel standards), well equipped rooms. Host friendly and knowledgeable. Garden and BBQ area is fabulous for outdoor eating. Central location to the Margaret River region. Its on the highway. We stayed in one of the back rooms (king triple). You could hear traffic but it was not intrusive.

Lovely, quiet place to be in the heart of all the action in Margaret River. The gentlemen that checked us in was most helpful with his advice on what to do, where to visit and where to eat. Do we prefer full-cream milk or skim milk? There is a compendium in the room on all the restaurant in town, which...

True to all previous reviews, this motel lives up to its reputation. From check-in to check-out, perfect hosts full of local knowledge, friendly but not intrusive. Nice touch being personally taken to your room with all amenities explained. Took on board previous reviews in relation to traffic noise by shutting the ensuite window and door and this was not an...

A bonus to our comfortable stay at this well maintained, friendly and well located property, was the Brew House within walking distance. Would recommend a room at the back, in pretty garden area as some noise from highway.

This was a very last minute booking for us and we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised to have stayed here. This boutique hotel is run by Denise and Alan who are very pleasant. On checking in Denise ran through the map of the town and quickly got us acquainted to our surroundings. She made excellent suggestions...

The room was clean and nicely presented, the hosts were friendly and accommodating and the lovely smell of the jasmine wafting in from the well cared for garden was delicious. This is a good value middle of the range accommodation option.

Presentation, service and maintenance cannot be faulted and are a credit to the hosts Denise & Alan. We stayed 2 nights in Unit 4 which overlooks the rear garden and has a renovated bathroom and the décor are excellent but next time we will request a different unit. The building design is not a typical motel complex. Unit 4 has...
