“Exceptional Quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Finally, a B&B in Australia worth giving a 5 star rating.

It's impossible to fault, and so many positives:
- the wonderfully personalised service and treatment from Sally and Serge. They both make you feel special, and valued.
- an excellent central location for both Dunsborough and the wine region of Margaret River.
- they have bikes and canoes for hire, plus excellent local knowledge to help you in your stay.
- the bedrooms and bed are huge, appointed with all the luxuries of a hotel (and more). The shower and toilets were equally as large, and high quality amenities within.
- breakfast was incredible. Order what and as much as you like off a generous menu list. Quality was outstanding.
- The pool and gardens were inviting, clean and stylish. The new plants going in at the time of our stay only add to this. The new pizza oven will be a highlight once commissioned.

This is a value for money, high quality, high service B & B. You won't be disappointed for one night, or many. We'll be back.

Warm welcome, comfortable and spacious room and bathroom, quiet but with easy access to facilities. Thoughtful additions provided to enhance the experience, including books to read and interesting and current magazines. Highly recommended.

Had an amazing stay at Newberry Manor. The only downfall was that we couldn't stay longer. Next time we will definitely stay for longer than one night. Nothing was too much trouble for Serg and breakfast was amazing. Serg's local knowledge was fantastic and giving us the best advice to help us squeeze in as much as possible in a weekend.

This was our "babymoon" so we wanted a littel luxuary.. and thats what we got! we booked the upstairs Orchid room which came with a balcony overy looking beatifully manicured gardens. the room was amazing! large spaciouse and lux! the spa was amazing! my husband being 6ft4" could fit in there easily! the fresh flowers in the room along with all little bits and pieces that you dont usually get in a room (torches, sewing kit makeup remover etc..) were great! the mini bar was well stocked and we made good use of all the sweeties and snacks. unfortunatly not the wine though due to being pregant but im sure they would have been lovely! breakfast on both days were great! banana smoothies, english breakfasts, crepes.. so much to choose from and all were yummy!

Serge and Sally are wonderful hosts! with plenty of local knowledge about the town and surrounding attractions! couldnt really ask for more! i wish we had stayed longer so we could enjoy the pool (although this was still in its final stages of completion but looks like a great place to unwind! i also spied a pizza stove.. you need more time that a weekend to enjoy everything!)

We would stay here again without a doubt! maybe out next get away when grandma is looking after the baby =)

So wonderful to read your kind words. Many thanks indeed! We hope that baby will be the most wonderful of blessings. Sally and I are looking forward to seeing you again. The pool has seen a fair bit of action of late and the plants are in! All set for cocktails and relaxing times!

A lovely small hotel / guest house. I had a Huge bedroom and great bathroom with both shower and a spa bath. There's a good selection of teas in the room. Add to this free chockies & port in the lounge. All finished off with a good quality & substantial breakfast.

In town for a wedding, we found Newberry manor a wonderful place to stay, for its ideal location (close to town, but away from the busy strip), welcoming and friendly service and reasonable price. With large rooms and bathrooms, very comfortable beds and lots of thoughtful details to make the stay special (port and chocolates, a selection of DVDs and books, and original and delicious breakfast options). Definitely recommended, we hope to return.

Breakfast was served at the time you desired and was delicious. The room was huge as was the bathroom, with towelling robes included. Sally made us feel so welcome. Location was 2 minutes drive from town and no more then 10 from Meelup beach. We would definitely stay again.
