Where to stay in Margaret River

Though many choose to explore the Margaret River wine region from a base at one of the area's campgrounds, you can also set up your home-away-from-home at one of the city's comfortable inns. Look for cozy establishments located near good surfing and swimming beaches. For a more luxurious experience, consider staying at a resort hotel or beach cottage, many of which offer well-equipped cooking areas and wooden decks ideal for holding small parties and family get-togethers.
