“Fab apartments”
Reviewed 1 December 2009

What a fantastic place to stay - a hidden gem! We stayed here for a couple of days while on our Honeymoon and were upgraded to a Spa apartment. It was wonderful. The apartment was well equipped - best I have ever stayed in. It catered for all home comforts - DVD player, candles etc. Made for an excellent base and also cosy nights in! Excellent location, right in the middle of Margaret River and close to restaurants. The girls at the front office couldn't have been more helpful - super! We'll definately be back if we're ever in the area again.

We stayed for 2 nights in a pleasant 2 bedroom apartment. The property is in the main street, at the edge of town, so it's close to all the facilities. Many of the apartments (including the one we had) do indeed have a “forest” outlook with a secluded patio area (with BBQ), which was nice. The apartment was well-designed, with kitchen/living area (and a laundry) downstairs and 2 bedrooms upstairs. There wasn't an en-suite, but there was a spa bath, with a window through to the main bedroom which might not appeal to everyone. It didn't trouble us, however, as the blind could be adjusted to block any view! . All expected facilities were present, including electric blankets and effective heating (reverse cycle air-conditioners). Although some of the units are quite close to the road, noise is not really an issue as there was little traffic in the evenings.

The first thing i like is that it's really convenient. Situated along the main street, it's just minutes walk from the nice shops and restaurants in Margaret River. The place is clean, and i like that there's the BBQ pit on the balcony. Had an evening of barbecue and enjoyed the starry sky in the cooling night. It's also generally safe even though i had a 1.5 year old toddler running around. For a self-contained, it has basically everything you need!

Reviewed 25 July 2009

We stayed at Assured Margarets Forest for 4 nights in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment which was guaranteed to overlook the 'forest'. This was a great choice as there was very little/no road noise, which I suspect there would be in the units closer to the "main" road.
The property is located at the northern end of Margaret River township, first property on the right after you drive across the river. There are nice walks adjacent to the property which we did not get a chance to experience due to the weather (rain and storms, plus very soggy ground.).
The property is on the main street of Margaret River but maintains a nice outlook due to the adjoining 'forest' and even the units which do not overlook the forest still have a nice outlook. There are a number of other places in Margaret River which overlook backs of shops etc so this is much nicer.
The property is located really close (2/3 minute walk) to shops, restaurants etc, as well as the large Visitor Centre being located pretty much across the road.
The apartment itself was clean, modern and well equipped. The (2) bathrooms were located within each bedroom in our apartment, both with spa baths and 1 with a separate shower as well. There is a separate toilet upstairs as well as another downstairs off the laundry.
Each room had a King Size bed with at least 1 able to be split into 2 King singles. There was a TV in each of the bedrooms with same TV channels (including cable) as the downstairs TV.
There is a nice small outdoor deck but we didn't get a chance to use this either.
We got a good winter rate by booking direct with the property.
Overall, this was a really good value, well equipped and modern self contained apartment with a nice 'forest' outlook but still really close to the main street and facilities of Margaret River

This was the third time I had stayed at this resort. The first two times I went with a group of girlfriends and stayed in the 2 bedroom units. This time I stayed in the one bedroom unit with my hubby. I prefer the 2 bedroom units and would not book a one bedroom unit again (too pokey and a bit dark, didn't like the layout or the fact that we could hear a lot of road noise). I recommend staying in the 2 bedroom units and I'll be going back for sure.

One of our favourite places for a weekend retreat - a spacious and well-equipped apartment, with one of the most comfortable spas I've ever used. It's just across the road from a wide range of restaurants and shops, and a short drive from other attractions in the area. Helpful staff, and reasonable rates. Highly recommended.

Reviewed 1 November 2004

Stayed in a duplex 2 bedroom spa unit. Very spacious even by my demanding standards, overall well designed and maintained which I consider sums up the main selling points.

Beware if you are there in winter, as was I, because aside from a (very effective) reverse cycle unit in the living/dining room downstairs there is no other heating, something one is rather conscious of when one wakes up in the morning in a cold bedroom!

All the units back onto a central car park which is pretty much it as far as facilites are concerned, so in a sense calling the place a "resort' is really a bit of a misnomer! It is just off the freeway (though quiet enough) just before the main drag of town, and I would recommend it for the great rooms, but not much else.
