Peter at Reception made us feel welcome from the get go with his friendly and attentive service - we even got a courtesy call which seems unheard of this days! The rooms were very clean, the pots were of high quality and the environment was peaceful. I saw wild kangaroos along the bush trail one morning too which was a really nice experience. Stephanie Iveson
I made a reservation for this accommodation because of the sudden short trip plan. The accommodation was very very clean, and all the equipments and facilities looks new things. The surrounding natural scenery provides a comfortable rest, and the location was also good. But, even though the facility is very clean, there is a lot of dust from blankets and curtains in the room, so I cough when I stay in the room. It's no one's fault, so I think it would be good to ventilate enough when cleaning for fresh air in the room. Also, it would be great if we could have a barista's fragrant coffee in this fantastic accommodation. Anyway, I am gonna definitely visit here again. I can strongly recommend to stay to here my friends. Raina Kim
Stayed at Eight Willows for a Yoga Retreat. It was so incredibly beautiful, serene and luxurious. Perfect setting for a perfect week. Highly recommend. Kahlia Fergusson
The chalets are comfortable, clean and well designed to be self contained. The reception centre is in walking distance from the rooms making it convenient for wedding celebrations. The location is also ideal for touring the region as it is between Margaret river and dunsbourough. Staff were very friendly and were great at communicating with us when our room was available etc. Rob Andersson
I love this place, accommodation with fully equipped kitchen and relaxing environment. You could spend whole day here with no plans in Margaret River. Would definitely bring my family and friends to be here again in near future ❤️❤️❤️ Julie Chiang
