“A peaceful retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at this property. What makes it stand out from the rest has to be the staff. Every one of them is dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable as possible. The property consists of only 12 rooms, which limits the guest numbers making it a very peaceful place to unwind. The surrounding gardens are beautiful; plenty of Australian bush together with some immaculate lawn areas to lounge around in. You would never have a problem finding a place to relax outside, as there is plenty of good quality outdoor furniture on the property. Surprisedly the only sounds you hear are the birds and not the passing traffic on Caves Road. Unfortunately we had cooler weather, so we did not make use of the pool, spa or even the tennis court. Rackets and balls are readily available to use – free of charge. The gym room is small but sufficient with water on hand.
Our room may have been on the small side but it was ideal for us. We had a lovely courtyard supplied with a sunlounge – nice touch. Besides entering our room from the main entrance, we also had a private entrance from the car park. The decor in the room was lovely, using local products and artwork. Our only complaints were the hard pillows and that they need to restock the teabags, shampoos etc daily. However, I am certain that if we had told them, they would have immediately rectified these small oversights.
During our stay, Tapas was available each evening. This is an excellent idea and one that we thoroughly enjoyed. Breakfast each morning was a great start to our day. All the food we ate here was of excellent standard (and yes Sean, it was heaps better than the Queen Mary 2 cruise that we sailed upon after our stay with you). Friday and Saturday nights during tapas, live entertainment is supplied. We were fortunate to have Pete Warren entertain us one night, which gave the restaurant a nice ambience.
Windmills Break has a well stocked bar, including local wines that the staff are very knowledgable about. Also well stocked are local attraction brochures, maps and tours that are available in the area. If wanting a really relaxing time, a good supply of DVD’s are on hand to borrow – no cost involved.
For those looking for a nightcap, complimentary port and chocolates are available.
Thank you Sean, your hard work did not go unnoticed. A very enjoyable time we had.

Stayed at the Windmills break for 3 days and nights. The site is very well presented, with a great pool and beautiful and peaceful gardens. The room and facilities were modern and spotless, and the breakfasts were first class.

The service provided by John, Sean and the team was welcoming and friendly at all times, and they deserve full credit for making our stay so enjoyable.

A must for all adults wanting a quiet and rewarding getaway.

Sean and the team at Windmills Break run an excellent retreat which is set in beautiful grounds close to the vineyards of Margaret River and the outstanding beaches of this part of Western Australia
Lovely gardens, excellent pool and good quality food are all part of the Windmills experience. The rooms are very well appointed and have their own patio/garden areas which are peaceful and havens for the local wildlife.
Areas where minor improvements could be made - outdoor furnture should be cleaned daily and the pillows were exceptionally uncomfortable
In summary this was a relaxing 4 night stay that passed by far too quickly - a lovely break we will return

We stayed at Windmills Break last week for four nights, and loved every moment of it. The room was very comfortable, modern, clean and had a large outdoor area. The facilities are excellent - the pool is divine and has comfortable lounges and the setting is so peaceful and relaxing; the gardens are beautiful with all lawns as soft as golf greens; and the restaurant / bar area is a great setting. Breakfast is delicious and the dinners we had at the restaurant were comparable to the best restaurants / wineries in the region.

A very special part of our stay was the warm hospitality we enjoyed from Sean (GM) and Geoff (the owner) - they gave us all the tips in the area as well as making sure everything was perfect during our stay. We also had one fun night at the intimate bar where we chatted to other guests at the hotel, something that only happens at small, boutique places like Windmills.

The location is also excellent, only a 3 minute drive to Yallingup and a 5 minute drive to Dunsborough, so very centrally located to tour the wineries and beaches in the region.

We would not hestitate in recommending Windmills - we absolutely loved it and were sad to leave.
