“Empire is a fantastic place to relax, unwind and tour the region”
Reviewed 28 April 2011

This is the second time we have stayed at Empire and being on honeymoon, we wanted something special. From the warm homeliness of the farmhouse and fireplaces to the sumptuous breakfast and the best day spa we have ever been to, Empire delivered exactly what we wanted.

The day bed is a great hidden delight for hiding in and reading, the gym allows burning of some of those calories gained by eating so much in the region and the farmhouse allows for evening recreation and perhaps some socialising.

We particularly appreciate how we were accommodated at the last minute in the "secret" room when we extended our stay over Easter - time when pretty well every accommodation establishment was full.

We WILL be back again.

Room Tip: It is nice and quiet during the week.

Booking was an ease directly though the resort and was supplied with very detailed information on staying there. We stayed in the the Luxury Villa which had everything we needed, and appreciated the little touches like home made mozzie repellant. The outdoor shower was lush and the toiletries sublime. We tried the Empire Chardonnay 2007 which was chilled in the fridge on our arrival, and was the best we tasted in the region. Breakfast was served in the beautiful farmhouse and between the very civilised hours of 8 and 10. Being Easter and so busy in the area, the resort still felt quiet and that you were being well looked after. Location was lovely, although not a great fan of Margaret River at Easter (too busy for my liking). Unfortunately it was the only time could get grandparents to take kids off our hands - so would have chosen to go at a quieter time. Loved Bunker Bay and the Busselton Pier. I would like to see the the retreat offering dinner. With the region being so packed it was difficult to to secure a dinner booking anywhere, and would save a drive.

All in all a wonderful stay if a peaceful part of the world. Highly Recommended.

Staff and facilities at Empire were top class. Staff were all really friendly and very helpful with the local attractions (special mention goes to Suzie - she was fantastic). In great location for Dunsborough (restaurants), wineries (not far down the road), and beaches (Yallingup, Smiths Beach and short drive to Bunker Bay).
We stayed in one of the loft suites and it was great for us - had everything we needed. Favourite time of day was breakfast out on the deck of a morning - yummo!
All in all a fantastic romantic getaway and highly recommended.

The minute you step on to the grounds you feel instantly relaxed, such a serene and calming atmosphere, lovely staff and fantastic facilities, had a very welcoming feel and allowed for total privacy. Great Breakfast too. Felt totally spoilt, will definately be back, for longer next time aswell!

A fabuluous getaway with my best friend was what we needed and were both very fortunate to share it at Empire. The 'Opulence Package' at the Spa was breath taking and we can't wait to come back xxx

Such an idyllic spot. Well maintained, clean and very friendly staff. The breakfast is well worth getting out of bed for and the location is a perfect base to explore the wine region and beaches.

Can't wait to return.
