Spent two nights here. Originally booked into a room in the homestead, which we found a tad dark and depressing when we got there - no one was around at all and the atmosphere wasn't very welcoming. Also (our fault for not checking) our room didn't have air con, and it was a hot day, so we asked Angus by...

The retreat is absolutely beautiful and the rooms are gorgeous. My partner and I had our wedding here at the beginning of Jan '16 and we couldn't have been happier. Every one of our guests were in awe of the place and plan to stay there in the future. We hired the whole place for 2 nights and it was...

We were looking forward to a lovely couple of days retreat in Margaret River only to find an inhospitable, UGLY and traumatic experience at this B &B. Given we were celebrating our son's 18th in town that night, we arrived late to a tiny room next to the loud office and toilets. We were woken up by loud crashing noises...

Best of both worlds. Great location, perfect mix of a homestead feel and modern selfcontained units. We really like this place, got plenty of tips of host Angus and had a perfect 5 day stay in november 2015.

From the moment we arrived, we felt at home. We were made so welcome by Angus, his local knowledge and tips felt like we were given insider information on where to go and what to see. Gilgara Retreat is not a 5 Star Sydney hotel, but more like a real home from home. We stayed in the main house. Breakfast...

Thank you to Angus at Gilgara Retreat. The rooms are neat and tidy. Nice and relaxing for a great weekend escape. Beautiful grounds and quiet. Angus was really friendly to my wife and I and he told us about a few spots for dinner and breakfast and it was spot on. Hope to come back again soon. :)
