I stayed for 3 nights.The staff taught me who came for the first time this local highlight carefully. There was little traffic by night and was quiet. If there are the facilities of the laundry, it is perfect. I want to stay again.

Outstanding thing about this motel was warm and friendly disposition of the owners. Denise and Alan gave lots of suggestions re places to visit and eat and couldn't have been more friendly and accommodating. Rooms not large but modern, well-equipped and very clean and king rooms had table and chairs outside which was great to have cup of coffee or... More

Wonderfully clean and modern room, with big comfy bed. Lovely 5 minute walk into town. Great staff who helped me choose a wine tour that suited my needs and were able to offer lots of suggestions for places to eat (and provide discounts at some restaurants) . Really recommend this place

Stayed for 2 nts end of Jan 2015 - excellent location & within walking distance of the town (5-10 mins). Room was spotlessly clean & very comfortable. Credit to our hosts who could not have done more to make us feel welcome - we have no doubt that when we return to Margaret River we will stay here again.

We stayed at Edge of the Forest with our little boy for 4 nights in January and have nothing but good things to say. The rooms are nice and cosy with everything you require for a short break and each has a lovely outside patio area to sit enjoy the surroundings. The garden and barbecue facilities were fantastic for us... More

Many thanks for your wonderful comments. We certainly enjoyed having you all stay with us and loved seeing you all in the garden enjoying our facilities. The skinks are a big hit with guests and are regularly sunning themselves around the property. The Rotary Park and walk trails just minutes from here are fabulous with some lovely scenery.

Our room was cosy and so clean! Our rate included continental breakfast which was simple but perfect. We loved watching the rainbow lorikeets in the garden outside our room. The location was perfect- only a short walk into town and its many restaurants. We really want to return!

Had a 2 night stay at the Edge of the Forest. The property is easy to find on the Busselton Highway, a 5 minute walk into town. The walk is well lit but not all paved so watch your step. Denise, the owner, greeted us with lots of information and a good map and was absolutely charming. The room was... More
