We stayed here earlier this year (2011) for a week. We stayed in an Ensuite Family Cabin (sleeps 4, with a double bed in a closed off room and bunk beds, not closed off) It was perfect for us. We wanted to save money on accommodation so we could do more whilst in margaret river. I think we payed about $70 or $80 a night which was worth it for a very clean roof over our heads instead of paying for a tentspace. We have a toddler so we needed something more. Location was good, not far from the middle of the main street, but just far away enough for no noise or commotion.
On arrival the place smelt and looked clean, kitchen was spotless as was bathroom and toilet. The cabin is small, but not so small as to feel closed in. There is a small balcony-like porch to sit out on which makes a difference. There is plenty of wardrobe space for a couple or two. Free tea and coffee with a complementary milk on arrival. Kettle, microwave, toaster, fridge, stovetop. no oven. the basics if you want to cook whilst there. Breakfast was nice and easy. it saved us alot of money having a clean private kitchen on hand.
only problem we had was that the provided linen smelt musty or something. Not unclean, just...maybe sitting there too long or old or something? We never use provided linen anyway and had brought our own so it didnt pose a problem. but the staff would have replaced it if we wanted them to. We just shoved the linen in a cupboard and used our own as planned. So bring your own just incase.
The staff are invisible. We didnt see them the whole time, yet everything was clean, outside bins were emptyed etc. Other guests were good too. barely heard them even though we went at a very busy time of yr! The cabins must have some kind of soundproofing because the people next to us had an 18 month old and we didnt know till we saw at the end, and they didnt know we had a lively 2 yr old either!
ducks and birds visit the patio which is a nice touch if you have kids or like animals. The place isnt too huge so theres no parking issues and you have your own space anyway. The communal BBQ area is a nice size and also always clean. We didnt use it because we had our own kitchen, but last time we stayed (pre-child days) in our van in a campspot and used the communal area along with the communal toilets and showers, and all were at a higher standard than most caravan parks. So recommended all round.
We found this stay just like the last stay... no frills, nice and relaxed like margaret river should be and good for families or singles alike. We have been twice and both times its been great. Excellent for anyone on a tight budget who doesnt want to "rough it".
