We stayed at Merribrook for 6 nights in November 2013. Lorraine and Richard are amazing hosts who do their best to meet all of your needs. We chose the Cape to Cape package and were not disappointed! Each day Richard would show us where to drop our car then drive us to the start of our trek. He knew the trail very well and was able to give us excellent advice about what areas to trek. Overall, we covered 65 kilometres in the 4 days we hiked. A hearty and delicious lunch was provided each day and he always checked in with us at the end of the day to see how it went and talk about the next days journey.
We chose to cook dinner in the kitchen rather than drive to town and it was amply stocked. The grill worked well and we were able to relax after a long day with a bottle of wine and enjoy the fireplace in the lounge. Our room was always clean and well stocked. Definitely the best way to go trekking in Margaret River!
My partner and I stayed at Merribrook Retreat for eight days on a Cape to Cape package, walking the track as a series of six day walks. Merribrook was the ideal base for this wonderful experience. We stayed in a Lakeview Retreat Villa. It was beautiful. We especially loved the bathroom, with gorgeous double bath, and the fact that we spotted a possum and its baby in the tree just outside our room. Views from the room of the Retreat’s gardens and the lake were spectacular, and the bed – oh so welcome at the end of the day! – very comfortable.
If you are doing the Cape to Cape Track walk with the aim of losing weight, don’t do it this way! Breakfasts at Merribrook are superb (especially the spinach and feta omelette), and our lunch was packed each day with more good food than we could comfortably eat. The way breakfast was set up, with self-serve coffee and tea (available all day, by the way), a small, healthy-ish buffet and a choice each day of three hot dishes cooked to order, offered the perfect combination of lovely service and a relaxed atmosphere.
The service at all times was a highlight of our stay. Everything was made easy for us and all staff members without exception were friendly and helpful. We particularly appreciated Toby’s extensive knowledge of the local flora, which he shared as he drove us to the start of our walk most days. But to single out one person seems almost unfair, as they were all so lovely. Do the Cape to Cape walk – it is fabulous! – and do it this way. What a great experience!
