Gnarabup|0.08km from downtown“You only get what you pay for” and unfortunately that saying came to past when we stayed at this resort booked through Luxury Escapes. It had all the makings of a great deal, a self- contained unit 500m from Gnarabup Beach, a free bottle of wine and all that Margaret River had to offer in close proximity, but things slowly started to turn sour on arrival. Our unit was situated in the back block of the resort which, appeared to me, was allocated mainly for travel agent package deal customers and, which was the only choice on offer. The Manager mentioned that they were only 30% full at the time, so perhaps he could have offered us better unit? Our parking area was mostly empty and consequently the empty parking bays were filled with roles of carpet, some of which encroached on our bay and caused some inconvenience when getting in and out of our car. Apparently carpets were being replaced in the units, which would explain why we were given a so-called bargain, but we were not advised of that fact previously. As for the free bottle of wine, we were only given one upon request. It was not all doom and gloom for us, as we were impressed with the cleanliness of the room and bathroom and the kitchen was well equipped. I would not recommend the bed to vertigo sufferers as the mattress was not firm and bounced excessively. The water was not hot for a shower and in the kitchen. We did complain to the Manager the next morning and the problem appeared to have been fixed briefly only, because the following morning the shower was cold again. One can only assume that we were allocated a unit with a known faulty hot water system. Unfortunately, our stay there did not have a happy ending for us - accommodation with no hot water is a definite put-off and damper to a holiday.
