Overall we had a good stay, the chalets are really well appointed and in excellent taste. The location itself is nice , however nothing extraordinary, just an artificial lake (dam) and few trees and shrubs. We were charged AUD350 per night.There is no service per say, the chalets are not daily cleaned and there is a large note saying that if you do not leave it reasonably cleaned you may be charged an extra $60! There is no restaurant nearby, and in general most of the restaurants all around all Margaret River are closed for dinner, as well for breakfast (a lot of the cafes open at 10AM), which I think it's a joke given the huge prices being charged around. This is one reason more and more Australians prefer to take holidays in Asia, where the service And value for monies are so much better.
