When planning our trip to Margaret River, as usual, I turned to TA to help find accommodation. This was the first motel whose reviews I read and I looked no further! Alan greeted us on our arrival and immediately brought out a large, detailed map of the area, highlighting sites and sights that he thought might interest us. We used... More

I vowed never to give a good review to a place with a 10.00am checkout but Edge of the Forest is so well appointed and managed that I am going to relent this once ! So many Australian motels let themselves down with poor fittings - 99cent toilet seats, really cheap bathroom fittings & maybe the compulsory 2 teabags &... More

The place is great. Excellent host and great hospitality. My kids 6 and 2 years old enjoyed it very much. The location is near MR town. So convenient. It is just 2min away from Coles and Woolworth! Thanks!

True to its name this small property sits at the edge of a forest. It has only 6 rooms and is not overrun with noisy crowds and the service is very personalized. The owners, a cheerful couple who clearly love what they do were very helpful in guiding us about places we could visit and what we should look out... More

We had a great 2-night stay at this motel. Really nice room, and extremely friendly and helpful hosts, who gave us a map of the area, lots of recommendations, and lent us umbrellas. It's less than 10 minutes' walk into town, so it's a great location for Margaret River town, and the area generally.

Stayed here for 3 nights recently in a king room. Bed was comfy and bathroom well appointed, rooms very clean if not overly spacious. I would have liked better soundproofing as we could clearly hear noise from adjoining bedroom. The location is very handy to the main street, and I particularly liked being able to open a window to fresh... More

Just on the edge of town, this attractive property provides comfy bedrooms and a friendly, professional welcome. The owners were solicitous in providing loads of local information and some really ace personal recommendations. Not super luxury, but excellent value for money in a great location for touring the glorious Margaret River region. A congenial base for our WA travels.

This is a wonderful place to stay. 10min walk to the Main Street. Lovely garden area with BBQ and table and chairs as well as other chairs. Rooms are good with a microwave. Would definitely stay here again. Not too many units so not over run by lots of people.
