Reviewed 17 September 2012

What a charming and delightful hotel. We stayed 3 nights and it had a very relaxed and comfortable feel about it. We stayed in the recently renovated manor rooms that were very comfortable and had everything we needed. Both Judy and Daniella were very friendly and helpful over the 3 nights. The breakfast each morning offered plenty of choices and the view of the manicured gardens is just a pleasure! The extra nice touch is the sitting room with soft chairs and fire place with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge full of fresh milk every day. They also have a water jug and wine glasses to help you enjoy some of the wines you may want to bring back and sample after a day of visiting the margaret river wineries. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this to any traveller that appreciated all the little extra touches.

We have recently returned home to Byron Bay from our 11 night stay in Basildene Manor. Immediately the welcome from Judy was extremely friendly and she explained the history of the Manor which we found quite informative. Our room was truly a breadth of fresh air, immaculately clean, large, comfortable and the views from our balcony were to die for. The manicured grounds are spectacular with numerous hedges and the flowers in there organized beds were varied and magnificent to say the least. Also the bath suites have the most luxurious bath to unwind in, I found this a real treat. The staff were very obliging when asked to organize any of the tours which are available in the area. Throughout our stay all the staff were very professional and courteous. In the evenings you are serenaded by the guinea fowl, crickets and musical frogs which reside in the nearby resident lake. It truly is a situation where you can totally relax after having a hectic time visiting all that Margaret River has to offer. We would highly recommend anyone to stay at this beautiful accomodation and would love the return again one day. Distance is the only reason for not enjoying a regular visit to this great establishment.

We had an amazing stay with you in Margaret River. Beautiful property in a great location. The staff member on check in was very friendly and gave thorough information about the hotel. On the 18th, we were hoping to book another room for my brother who had travelled down. Unfortunately the hotel was fully booked, but the staff member on the desk (I forget her name, sorry) brought up a list of hotels she had made for us to call. We really appreciated this. Thank you!

From the time we walked through the front door we knew we were going to enjoy a wonderful week. The decor was old world charm with black and white photographs adorning the foyer. Our room was impeccably decorated and oh so comfortable. We enjoyed breakfast each morning in the dinning room which overlooked manicured lawns and gardens. Each and everyone of the staff provided excellent service. Because we holidayed in Jan 2012 the weather was very hot and dry so we found ourselves every afternoon spending time in the pool. This was a great place to meet other guests and enjoy a wine or two. We thoroughly enjoyed the township of Margaret River and its surrounding areas. If you like your wines than Margaret River wineries are amongst the best. Basildene Mannor is the ideal couples retreat . We loved it and would go back. 10/10

Room Tip: The newer rooms are larger - but all are equally well positioned.

This is my third stay at Basildene Manor (July 1992, 2002, 2012 - this last just 3 days), it calls to me. It provides elegant respite from today's busy world and has the charm and elegance of an earlier era. Built by the Head Leewin Lighthouse Keeper for his family you can almost hear the laughter in the halls. as you look at the dozens of early family and regional photos hanging on the walls. The pictures or Henry's 1916 send off to WW I sparked the question of 'did he return ?' (answer - yes). It's easy to feel like part of the family. Breakfast overlooking the garden' is a treat. Tables laddened with food; spiced pears, poached apples, stewed rhubarb and a wide array of artfully cut fesh fruit are avialabe to top the tasty local yogurt and jams. There is a range of hot breakfasts to choose from all good - this time I discovered the fresh blueberry pancakes - talk about heaven! If it wasn't so far from Sydney I would be a more regular visitor. Although it feels quite rural 14 acres of manicured gardens, loaded with native birds (and a few bunnies) it is a short walk 1.2km to Margaret River's village. Wine tasting, art and gastonomy are the go for the area and Basildene provides the perfect base.

Room Tip: I like to stay in the original house - rooms are large and sunny

We stayed 3 nights in the May of 2011 so the weather albeit fine didn't allow us to enjoy the pool area wiyh the colourful birds and Roos in the distance forest area.The rooms we some of the best we have ever had. The Breakfast fare was excellent garnished with flowers. They had a wine tasting/talk in the basement lounge from a local Winery which added to the colour. A very quiet historic stately home/lodge atmosphere, we were told one of the guest 'complained' about the noise from a room next door..but it had no guests...so even a resident ghost! Its a 25/30 min stroll into Margaret River township passed paddocks of Large Kanagroos We took the Coach back top Pert from M' River which again was excellent. It was poosible to bus/trian but didn't suit our lazy time table.

Room Tip: We had rooms overlooking the garden pool area
