Historic hotel located in the Western Australia town of Margaret River
Located in the heart of the Western Australian town of Margaret River, the Margaret River Hotel offers guests a fine location in which to enjoy this quaint, traditional town.
The property itself has an historic charm about it. Opened in 1936, the establishment opened as Margaret Rivers first public house. Since then it has extended to become a popular hotel. The bar still remains whilst bedrooms, which have been recently restored, make for a comfortable stay.
The hotels guestrooms each feature an en-suite bathroom, television, telephone, and tea and coffee making facilities. The family room is made up of two interconnecting rooms, whilst the luxury spa room features and open fireplace and two-person spa bath. This latter room is ideal for honeymooners or couples looking for a peaceful and romantic break.
As well as its hotel rooms, there is also a series of holiday suites located behind the main property. These motel style rooms are again equipped with a range of amenities, including en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, toaster, iron, hairdryer, beverage maker, and TV.
The hotel restaurant is open to all guests as is the Corner Bar. The former is a bistro style eatery which features an a la carte menu and a selection of local wines. The latter is a lively and friendly town pub that offers live entertainment, televised sport and a fine selection of beers and local wines. Its popular with guests and even more popular with locals.
The Margaret River Hotel puts guests at the heart of the town and its multitude of activities. Located close to 300 kilometres south of the state capital Perth, the town of Margaret River falls between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin (locally known as the Cape-to-Cape region).
Located just nine kilometres from the shores of the Indian Ocean, the town is a popular destination for those looking for sandy beaches and sunshine. The area is particularly popular with surfers, thanks to its impressive surf breaks. Other visitors enjoy a spot of sea-fishing or scuba diving. Of course, the beaches are just fine for those with nothing more on their mind than some uninterrupted relaxation.
The Mediterranean climate is ideal for wine-making, which just happens to be one of the main features of this region. There are reported to be over 70 wineries in the area, many of which offer vineyard tours and wine-tasting sessions. Why not pick up your favourite bottle direct from the source before it ever makes it onto the supermarket shelf?
One of the most stunning attractions in the area is the Leeuin-Naturaliste National Park and its hundreds of naturally formed caves, six of which are open to the public. Mammoth Cave is the most well-known of these. It is a multi-chambered cave that includes partial disabled access, the only cave in the region to do so. The 30-metre-deep cave has been open to the public for more than 100 years. The other five accessible caves are Calgardup Cave, Giants Cave, Jewel Cave, Lake Cave, and Ngilgi Cave.
As well as these attractions, the Margaret River Hotel also allows for visitors to access a further range of picturesque and enjoyable scenes.
