“SECOND STAY AT NEWBERRY MANOR STILL THE BEST B & B”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

In November, when we were last at Newberry Manor, we said we would come again to "check out" Sally and Serge's swimming pool which was at that time under construction. So our second stay in February resulted in a refreshing swim in their delightful swimming pool. Sitting by the pool was so relaxing and you couldn't help but see Sally and Serge's attention to detail - The garden is just lovely and the design of the outdoor area certainly does Sally and Serge proud and shows that their hard work has paid off. The new front wall is definitely a "Labour Of Love". We had the upstairs room with a spa. It was just magic, large, very clean and full of charm. The fridge was well stocked and coffee and tea facilities were available. The breakfast was great with a menu that enabled us to have a lot of choice. Nothing was too much trouble for Sally and Serge and they genuinely welcomed us back again. Thanks so much we had a fantastic stay at your B& B and we will be back to "road-test" the new pizza oven. Jo & Paul

Room Tip: The upstairs room was extra large with a balcony that looks out onto the garden area.

Thanks so much Jo. We are glad you had a lovely time and that you enjoyed a swim with Paul in the pool. A labour of love it is and will remain for the near future as the pizza oven will be completed shortly followed by the remodeling of the back section of the garden. We can't wait to bake our own pizzas! Summer is dwindling down but we love it here no matter what the season. The fire will be crackling in the fire place soon. Take care and keep in touch. Serge and Sally.

Very pleasant stay, I wish it could have been longer as we didnt have enough time to dip in the new pool.. It is incredibly comfortable with enough privacy. Breakfast was delicious and at our preferred time.

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.

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.
