Chalets on Frenchmen, doesn't have the advantage of being right on the Harbour like Lilacs does, but it's not far away and cottage 4 where we stayed was modern comfortable & clean with all the amenities we needed, both kitchen and laundry. TVs in lounge and bedroom, DVD player etc. Congrats on the tasteful decor guys, helped put us in...

The 1 bedroom cottage was clean and the kitchen was pretty well equipped. There was a nice hiking trail behind the property. If you have kids, there was a play area out back too. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. To get to the bathroom, one had to go through the entry "room". It is probably okay...

I was here for work and it was so lovely to stay in a place that was like being on holiday. The location is stunning- St George Sound is 20 seconds walk across the well kept grassed area and divine to look at any time of day and each large cottage is spaced apart well (number 8 is joined to...

Our little cottage was perfection! Very homey and cosy, everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The management are lovely and maintain the place fantastically. Perfectly between town centre and tourist locations. Definitely will be staying again and recommending to all! Thank you for the great stay!

Loved this spot. Absolutely lovely accommodation with full kitchen and nice bath. It has air-conditioning, but we never needed it. There was a lovely breeze both days. Just off the water, we had a lovely view from the yard. Great spot for anyone with kids with nice playground.

A great place for a holiday. We travelled with a group of friends all retirees and on our arrival were immediately made welcome by the Manager. The accommodation was first class with all facilities provided (food and drinks excepted)and the view from our cottage was fantastic. Access to shopping and all sightseeing were a short drive away. Definitely recommended for...

Hired two cottages between 10 friends for five days and had a wonderful time. Both cottages were well appointed, extremely neat and clean and about 4 kms from town on Frenchman's Bay so very peaceful. Would thoroughly recommend Lilacs for families and anyone wanting to get away from it all for a quiet holiday. Owners were very helpful and left...

Arrived at the reception and sense the staff had no idea how to be nice. Met the owner, found him to be obnoxious to say the least.... Rooms very average and certainly not luxury. Overrated accommodation. Find better for the money. UNRECOMMENDED.

Friendly staff, great views over the bay. Ive stayed twice i loved it so much. If you are staying in Albany this is the place you must stayed at. The best accomodation in Albany by far, and very well priced. Lots of walking to do on the great track around the bay. Also some play equipment for the kids.

We came here to start the Bibbulmun Track after cycling over from Tassie. We loved our stay here and loved the owners who introduced themselves and bend over backwards to make our stay pleasurable and good. All was perfect to begin with in any case, but still Joe and Annette managed to really impress us with their generosity and kindness....
