Augusta Escape
Reviewed 5 January 2014

Stumbled upon this motel after trying to find something reasonably priced in the Margaret River Region... Excellent value with large spaces and SUPER CLEAN! Central location (few minutes walk to super market, bottle shop & pub/restaurants).
Well worth the short drive from Margaret River town to stay. Recommend without a doubt!

Kyra and Mark (the new owners) could not have been more friendly, helpful and welcoming. We were more than comfortable in our 2 bedroom apartment. We really appreciated the large fridge, oven and washing machine facilities. We needed to be able to prepare most of our meals, and we had everything we needed, in good condition. The location was ideal, such easy access to the shops, but far enough off the road that traffic noise was not an issue. I would highly recommend staying here. The units are not modern, but they are in kept in good condition and are very comfortable and spacious.

Room Tip: Unit 1 is the furthest from the street. We stayed in Unit 2 and were not bothered by the road traff...

Arrived in Augusta late evening and were delighted to happen upon this gem of a motel. Couldn't believe the reasonable price for the great two bed unit we got. Immaculately clean, spacious with new fridge, oven etc. Perfectly situated in town. The owner, Kyra was friendly and helpful. Wish we could have stayed longer- - hope to return one day.

The owner was so considerate, open the heater for us before we arrived around 8pm because it was raining on that night and quite cold.
Four of us staying in the two bedroom house and the kitchen was full quipped, it is really clean,neat and tidy. All you need to bring just food ingredient and seasoning:)
The owners were really so friendly.

Room Tip: Everything just well prepared onsite, just prepare own food ingredient and seasoning:)

We had left our planning for the long weekend trip too late and we were very fortunate to find accommodation here, which represented excellent value for money. As a previous reviewer said, the units are pretty retro, however, they are very clean, comfortable and the kitchens are well equipped with large fridge and (seems to be) new stoves. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The units are located on the main road, but back from the road so we were not troubled by noise. The one major drawback is the bar-b-q area - if one could call it that. Very rough and unappealing and situated amongst the recycle & garbage bins.

Augusta is a bit off the beaten track and major tourist routes, which suited us fine. It has a lovely laid back village atmosphere and the beach is an easy walk away. The estuary area is very scenic and provides safe entertainment for the kids, with lovely playgrounds. Being at the tip of the continent I believe it does get quite rainy here - which we experienced (while north of Margaret River was basking in sunshine) . We went to the Light House and also the Jewel cave, both well worth it. The Sports shop down the road rents out bikes which is a fun way to explore the local area.

Room Tip: Ask for the 2 bedroom unit if you are more than 2 people - at $15 extra they are almost twice the si...

The unit was really tidy and clean. The rooms are comfortable and neat. The owner greeted us and passed us the keys and he was really friendly and helpful. The kitchen has various pots and pans and multiple sets of utensils. You can easily prepared a full meal here (yup, even dishwashing liquid was provided! very impressed with how thoughtful the owner was). I will definitely recommend this place to anyone who intends to go to Augusta for a visit! :)

Having stayed recently at Clovelly units for another week in paradise i can highly recommend this place. Centrally located in Augusta these older style self contained units are just the thing for a relaxing stay . Everything you would want inside and a nice BBQ area at the front door to cook up the fish you caught that day. Units a large inside with seperate lounge,kitchen and bathrooms,all kept clean and tidy for their age. Will be returning soon for another relaxing week.
