We were looking forward to a lovely couple of days retreat in Margaret River only to find an inhospitable, UGLY and traumatic experience at this B &B. Given we were celebrating our son's 18th in town that night, we arrived late to a tiny room next to the loud office and toilets. We were woken up by loud crashing noises... More

Best of both worlds. Great location, perfect mix of a homestead feel and modern selfcontained units. We really like this place, got plenty of tips of host Angus and had a perfect 5 day stay in november 2015.

It is situated along Caves Road, lovely location out of the town but close to the coast to watch the surfing or to visit the caves and a spot of wine tasting or to go bike riding.. A very easy trip should you want to drive down to Augusta. Our host was very helpful and gave us plenty of tips... More

From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. We were made so welcome by Angus, his local knowledge and tips felt like we were given insider information on where to go and what to see. Gilgara Retreat is not a 5 Star Sydney hotel, but more like a real home from home. We stayed in the main house. Breakfast... More

Thank you to Angus at Gilgara Retreat. The rooms are neat and tidy. Nice and relaxing for a great weekend escape. Beautiful grounds and quiet. Angus was really friendly to my wife and I and he told us about a few spots for dinner and breakfast and it was spot on. Hope to come back again soon. :)

A relaxing, stylish and tranquil environment!!! The villa we stayed in had floor to ceiling windows where we watched a storm playing with the gum trees just outside. The sunken bath was divine when opened to the outside to hear the noise of the kookaburras. The grounds were lush and beautifully kept. Angus, our host was friendly, informative and helpful!

We came back to Gilgara a second time; different host this time - Angus and he was lovely. It was pouring with rain when we arrived, but Angus was there with a bright smile and an umbrella to keep most of the rain off us.

We had two days in Margaret River and stayed at Gilgara (August 2015). The booking process and Angus's assistance in getting to Gilgara was fabulous. Once we were there, we never wanted to leave. We stayed in a garden villa which had all we needed for a romantic break. I would have loved to stay for at least a week... More

Gilgara retreat is the perfect spot off the main road, set in beautiful grounds and bush lands. Everything about this place is perfect, the location, the room and Angus the host is just wonderful :-) Very tasteful architecture and interior design. The bed was very comfortable.
