We only had one night at Edge of the Forest but we found it reasonably priced and surprisingly comfortable. The bathroom was well-appointed with a large shower. The only negative is that counter space could have been somewhat larger. It did included a limited continental breakfast though, we couldn't really comment on that as we were meeting friends for breakfast... More

Stayed there for two nights. The location was just off the highway and around 10 minutes walk to the city centre. This was very helpful for the morning and evenings, since the afternoons were spent driving around. Was greeted by Denise who was very warm and helpful. Showed us maps of places we could go as well as have our... More

Upon arriving, the owner gave us a map of attractions in the area and personally highlighted many suggested attractions. We didn't have time to visit all of his suggestions, but the ones we visited were excellent. He did a very good job reading our interests and selecting just the right sorts of things for our personality. The location is also... More

We made this our base for 5 nights and were very comfortable in the king bed with electric blankets with reverse cycle A/C in the room. I was impressed with our welcome and the quick response to any queries or requests during our stay. It really is on the edge of the forest, but within an easy walk to shops... More

Nice verandah to sit and enjoy the garden, while trying the local drop. A friendly welcome from the owner with some helpful advice. A small stroll to the village. Well kept rooms and plenty of room for parking.

We booked this hotel through Qantas and was able to get $30 off their room rack rate. A really good bargain considering it was about 600m from town and the restaurants were within walking distance. We booked the family room, which had a queen/double bed and two single beds. The beds were comfortable, all with bed heaters. The room has... More

Great location in Margaret River - at the edge of town, but still within walking distance to restaurants and other amenities in the town proper. Be sure to check out the hiking trail in Rotary Park 5 mins down the road - 15 mins will bring you to the scenic weir with it's still waters and half drowned trees. Bathrooms... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. The hosts couldn't have done more for me and my family group when we booked in for a few nights for a family wedding. The rooms were comfortable, overlooking the garden and we really enjoyed sitting outside relaxing and socialising. Lovely place that I won't hesitate to go back to any time. Thank... More

Had a wonderful time at the Edge of the Forest Motel for our over night stay.. Helpful staff, town centre was within walking distance, electric blankets perfect for this weather, a great variety of movies to choose from in reception if a chilled night in is desired. Rooms were definite value for money, and the garden was beautiful! A big... More

What a beautiful place! As soon as wee arrived we were greeted by Alan and he was super informative! If it wasn't for him showing us points on the map he provided to us, our weekend wouldn't have been so great.
