Stayed here for 2 nights in March in a Queen Room Pros: - Friendly & very helpful owners: Always willing to help & will go out of their way to assist. We asked them a million & one questions and also asked if we could wash our cars. No hesitation and even provided us with soap & a pail. They... More

We stayed 5 nights here and were very comfortable. We never expect motel rooms to be huge, but these were thoughtfully renovated and stylishly furnished, so seemed larger than they were. The owners, Alan and Denise, were thoughtful too - fresh milk, beds made and washing up done for us each day. We stayed in the middle of the coldest... More

Fairly standard motel room. Nothing special accommodation-wise, but nothing wrong with it either. No great views, but a nice little garden. The staff were very nice and very helpful. they suggested some wineries and sights to visit. We were happy with their recommendations. It's a bit of a hike into town, but just a couple of minutes if you are... More

Enjoyed a 3 night stay at this hotel. No complaints. Affordable and one of the cheapest options we found. Room was clean and tidy and beds comfortable. Room heated up prior to our arrival. Small kitchinette (insufficient to cook on). No sink so jug needed to be filled from bathroom. Breakfast included - bread for toast, cereal, milk and juice.... More

Denise is a lovely, friendly host and very knowledgeable about the area. Accommodation was great, we had a garden view room which we can definitely recommend. Rooms are well appointed and we made good use of the shared BBQ facilities. Great location - easy 5 min walk into town

Thank you so much for your review, we try to be a knowledgeable about the area as we can. The undercover BBQ is still being used even though Winter has well and truly set in:) The rooms overlooking the back garden are very popular. We love the walk into the many restaurants & cafes in town. More

Having arrived from an overnight flight and on the road for 3 hours to Margaret River, we were a little sad to be informed that we cant have an early check-in caused we were still early. Nevertheless, the team at Edge of the Forest really gave us a warm welcome with their sincere greetings and kind gestures. The housekeeping staff... More

Stayed recently for 2 nights at the Edge of the Forest Motel after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. We booked 2 King Rooms and found them to be extremely clean and comfortable, with everything you could wish for. The owners were also very friendly and helpful. We look forward to using the lovely BBQ area... More

We went when the weather was cooler, but the room was fairly cold. Only until the last day did we realize the window had been open the entire time! Bed had heated blanket, so that was nice. Free DVDs to watch and also they stocked fresh milk for coffee in the fridge. My only complaint would be there was no... More

Many thanks for staying with us and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We toyed with fitting doors to the shower, however find the trick with the shower is to have the shower head pointed toward the wall, rather than the shower opening. :) More

We recommend this place wholeheartedly. Location is very convenient, close to town via car or walking. Our room was at the back, so it was very quiet. Lovely garden outside with beautiful green parrots. Room was excellent, clean, spacious, stylish and had everything you would want. Mini kitchen area made it easy to make coffee/tea, set up your own cereal,... More
