Fantastic experience at both Edge Of Woods and Margaret River area. But the best was the advice from the Edge Of The Woods staff on what to do. I had limited time, 1-1/2 days at the end of a business trip, and her advice allowed me to make the most of it. I was interested in combining Wine Tastings, nature,... More

The people who owned Edge of the Forest were so kind and helpful. They let us check in early and were very accommdating. Great location, only a few minutes walk to the town centre and very close to the River. We got up most mornings and went for a run and was beautiful. Thanks for a lovely couple of days

Our welcome to Edge for the Forest, Margaret River, was truly memorable! It was the most comprehensive run down of an accommodation we'd ever received. Denise filled us in on all the places of interest, restaurants to eat at, wineries, tours, walks, things to see and do in the area and everything we needed to know for our stay at... More

We found Edge of the Forest on TripAdvisor and stayed there three nights. Denise & her husband were wonderfully helpful in making recommendations and giving directions. The room included an excellent continental breakfast. We felt this was a great price for the quality of the room, service and breakfast. If you make reservations, ask for rooms 5, 4 or 3,... More

We appreciate you taking the time to share you comments so thank you:) We try to provide value for money and a quality room. We are on the Highway which is a busy road. The rooms overlooking the back garden have King Beds and are slightly more expensive, Generally these rooms seem to be the most popular. More

The motel is in a great location, few minutes walk from the town where there are some lovely resturants and bars, very central so only short drive to all attractions.

Thank you for your comments and we are happy that you thought we were value for money:) We are on the main road and during the day the traffic can be quite busy. The traffic noise does reduce in the evening. If available the King and King Triple rooms overlooking the back garden are the quietest. More

I stayed two nights with my wife at Edge of the Forest. Woke up to the sound of birds chirping, that was nice. The staff was friendly with menus of the restaurants in town already prepared in the room. Also includes Free DVD rental at the reception, free Wi-Fi , BBQ pit and 10min walk from the town centre.

We loved that it backed onto the forest and was very quiet. The shared backyard area made you feel at home and relaxed. The room was very clean, excellent customer service and very close to the center of Margaret River. It was also very accessible to nature walks and the wineries.

The name "Edge of the Forest" was very intriguing when I was searching for motels in the Margaret River area. Imagine there is a motel at the edge of the forest. After toying with my imagination, I finally booked it for a night. We arrived quite late and it was difficult to locate the place as the road was very... More

THank you so much for taking the time to Review. A good tip for when arriving at night is to watch out for our large lit up Motel sign at the front of the property, so if you know which sign to look for it would make it very easy. Our sign is on most websites :) You were here... More
