“The best place we stayed in on our month in Australia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Stayed here last weekend and loved it. We had Room 4 overlooking the garden and the first thing we did was sit in the sun on the terrace with a beer! Denise and Alan are really lovely hosts, just like staying with friends. Room decor was fab, they really make the effort to make it far from a characterless hotel room. It was a pleasure being in there.
It's about 10 mins walk into town which is harder on the way back with a full tummy and a hill! We spent the first day on a wine tour with Vintage Tours which I highly recommend, Tony is brilliant. The other day we went down to Hamelin Bay and saw the Rays - amazing.
I would most definitely stay here again if we visit MR again which we really hope to do in the future.

We enjoyed seeing the three of you having such a great time and you had great weather to enjoy beers on the balcony. Not everyone gets to see the rays, they are quite spectacular to watch.
We love the walk back to work off our food and wine. Doing some renos in May so the rooms will be better still..

We stayed at the Edge of the Forest for 3 nights and could easily have stayed longer.

Denise and Alan were exceptional hosts, very friendly and made you feel very welcome.

The rooms were a good size, very clean and quiet. There was a balcony off the room and it was very pleasant to sit here, have breakfast and look over the nice backyard with its BBQ etc. just like home.

The location was excellent, being only a short walk into Margaret River, and there was also a pleasant walk through the bush behind the motel.

We would certainly recommend Edge of the Forest and would stay here if we returned for another visit to Margaret River.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the backyard.

Would definately love to have you both stay again if you return to Margaret River. The short walk back from town is great to walk dinner off.

This motel is a 10 minute walk from the shopping and restaurant precinct but is a hidden gem. The managers did everything to make us feel comfortable. The BBQ area is in a delightful garden with everything like oil, sauces, tongs and paper towel supplied - how good is that! Walks through the forest are at the back door and we will stay here again.

We recently stayed at the Edge of the Forest and had a great time. The location is wonderful, especially the peaceful and beautiful garden, yet it is just a short walk to everything in town. We were travelling with 3 other couples and really enjoyed being able to congregate at the big table in the garden. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed, and I would highly recommend staying there when you visit Margaret River.

We loved having you all stay and it was great to see you enjoying catching up each day in the garden. Lots of lovely laughter wafting through the garden. Hope the rest of your holiday was fantastic.

An enthusiatic welcome was followed by a great room. The garden view rooms are quiet,have a great view of the garden and your own decking.The BBQ is the worlds cleanest.Immaculate cleaning included doing the washing up.10 minutes from town,if you need it.
We got great tips on guides for the wineries.

Room Tip: Go for a garden room.

The BBQ is a big hit and very well used with many people chosing to dine on their decks or at the dinding table in the garden. What better than a BBQ with Margaret River wine from your day trip to the wineries.

We have just spent a lovely weekend at Edge of The Forest. Extremely friendly hosts, beautiful gardens and all within walking distance from the town. Sit under the stars at night, enjoy the BBQ provided with the sparkling lights throughout the trees twinkling. Very relaxing property with lots to see and do in the area. Will definitely go back.
