An amazing long weekend avoiding the hustle and bustle. Merribrook was everything we needed to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and have a relaxing long weekend. The Lakeview Retreat was amazing. Maintained very well compared to some other properties we’ve stayed at down south. The service and hospitality was the best we’ve received recently. We will definitely be back.
The most magical place on earth
We’ve visited Merribrook twice now from the UK first time as a couple, found the place so enchanting, peaceful and beautiful we returned four years later with our kids. The magic was still there and the kids were entranced. This place will never get old for us x

Chris and I had such a lovely time, it was so relaxing and peaceful. We were very lucky to be able to indulge in your scrumptious breakfasts, overlooking your amazing gardens and the lake! It is an absolute credit to the both of you, and your staff. All your hard work and efforts make it such a gorgeous place to stay. All those personal touches… the welcoming reception, freshly cut flowers on the tables and in the rooms, special soaps and the friendly chats, definitely makes Merribrook Retreat stand out from the crowd!

Best stay in Margaret River!
Breakfast spread is awesome! Hosts are so warm and friendly! Beautiful wood fireplace at the guest lounge! If I ever visit Margaret river again I definitely will stay at Merribrook retreat! Such a beautiful place and so well maintained. Room is clean and has a good heater. There is also nice aroma from the essential oils… So relaxing… We had the best breakfast in our visit to WA! A fantastic spread & yummy healthy food. Breakfast served by the friendly hosts at the guest lounge which has a fireplace, warms the heart, tummy and body! There is a 3km trail in this resort. Nice morning walk in winter and you could see some kangaroos from a distance. This place is definitely value for money!

Undeniably a most serene and enchanting location
Robert and Catherine, Collaroy NSW,
I didn’t think Margaret River had something so beautiful hidden till I got here. You have a beautiful place – great job! Breakfast was awesome too. From the moment I arrived I was already planning my return with my partner! Think that says it all…Again thank you and see you again soon!
Simon and I would like the chance to thank you so much for such a very special trip. You made my birthday so special with your little extra touches – something you wouldn’t find in a commercial hotel. This retreat is so relaxing and a perfect haven to escape the hustle and bustle of Melbourne City life! Loved our room with beautiful linens and 5 star touches. The walk around the property was sensational. Such a vast amount of birdlife and wildflowers, a great walk for everyone! Many thanks for a fabulous stay.
Joanne and Simon,

Have been travelling the world for 58 years – have never come across such an idyllic piece of heaven, presented by such genuine hospitable people. Couldn’t imagine a more perfect spot to rest and revive from a hectic life. Will be sending those I care for here for their own experience of peace and quiet. Thankyou Lorraine, Richard and Angus
We have been many places before…yours is on top of our favourite ones. Your place is simply amazing. It’s the combination of comfort, luxury and nature that makes the place so special. Thank you for all you do to make your guests feel at home

What a heavenly stay we had. We were treated like a King and Queen, pampered and preened and fed with the most amazing hampers. We loved every second. We will be back!
Nicole and Canice, Ireland,
Such beautiful grounds and great accommodation. Nice and rustic with an upmarket flair. Fantastic breakfast and thank you Lorraine and Richard for such warm hospitality
Chris and Chrissy, Western Australia,
From the parrots trimming the wisteria which looked like falling snow, to the wrens hoping along the path leading us to breakfast. Views over the lake, the privacy of our chalet and the kookaburras laughing at us as we wind our way back to the rat race of suburban life; we thank you for not just a break but a relaxing experience! Oh yes, and the fluffiest, yummiest pancakes in the Southern Hemisphere
Bill and Shelley,
Thank you so much for a magical stay. It’s our first time in W.A and Margaret River, wow – what a way to visit! Spring is in full bloom, the flowers, the fragrance, the birds. Beautiful

We love it at Merribrook. You have made such a beautiful, peaceful sanctuary here and we will leave feeling very relaxed.

We will be back again!!
Amy and Patrick,
Loved the privacy and tranquility. Everyone was kind and happy to answer all our questions. The lake, flowers, fireplace… everything was just beautiful. An amazing place to relax and forget all worries. Looking forward to coming back again

Complete serenity and relaxation are words that spring to mind. That, coupled with such genuine and gracious hospitality, have made our stay at Merribrook truly special. Time spent here, away from the busy life, is a very worthwhile treat.
Meredith and Helen,
Thank you for 3 wonderful, relaxing days. What a fabulous property. Love waking up after a brilliant nights sleep and opening the curtains and looking out to the lake and the trees. Do we have to go back to suburbia!!! See you again.
