Moyola Manor Guesthouse
It has been a few weeks now, but we recently spent a few nights in Bridgetown, in Australia’s South West at the Moyola Manor Guesthouse. Since we are travelling a lot in the next few months, I thought I would introduce some hotel profiles to our travel posts, sharing some of the great spots we find along the way. Most people tend to opt for the Margaret River area, however we thought we would look a little further inland and stay in Bridgetown. We did drive out on day trips to Margaret River from here, but more on that here.
Moyola Manor was built in the 1930’s and offers a quiet alternative home away from home. With only a few rooms, the guesthouse is a private place to unwind and enjoy the beautiful surrounds. Nestled among 2 acres of country gardens, the mornings were the perfect time to wander around in the dewy gardens and take in the sunrises. We did exactly that each morning before it later bucketed down with rain. The gardens as you can see are stunning- but I would love to see them again in full bloom of the Spring months.
The Perfect Stay in Bridgetown
The house itself features a large dining room, living room and library, porch set up with chairs and French style cafe tables (and blankets for your legs if it is cold!). Owners Tracie and Michael are some of the most lovely, welcoming and accommodating people we have had the pleasure of meeting. From the beginning they looked after us with food, advice on the area and later some of the most delicious and huge breakfasts!
The rooms themselves are relaxing, country decorated with built in window seats that overlook the grounds. There are two shared bathrooms which have recently been added on and designed beautifully. We only had one night where we were sharing a bathroom, which neither of us even noticed.
This was such a great place to recharge, spend a night enjoying wine and cheese by the fire or visit the Bridgetown Hotel for a really decent steak then retire to a cozy country style room to fall sound asleep. I am looking forward to returning in Spring.
