This hotel calls itself a 4 1/2 star resort and the photos on the internet certainly makes it look inviting - but it is far from a resort hotel.
After spending a week at the Novotel Ningaloo in Exmouth we were very disappointed to arrive the The Edge in Kalbarri. The kids first impressions were that is smelt like a "Caravan".
Its only marginally better than the Kalbarri Beach Resort and that because it is newer.
Next time we drive to Exmouth I think we will stay in Geraldton instead as the Mantra aparments are much better than The Edge and cheaper.
The decor and ambience of the rooms are similar to that of a cabin in a caravan park.
At $306 a night for a family suite we were expecting a spacious apartment with a spa.
Instead the bathroom had a triangular bath with spa jets that only a child could lie in and a room with a tiny main bedroom and stains on the sofa. The furniture choices reminded me or an old people's home and a doctor's waiting room. Not very realxing or "resort" like.The bed linen felt like poly/cotton and the aircon was noisy.
I don't know how many rooms there are in the resort but they have been jammed in and the rest of the areas are car park. The gardens are badly landscaped and untended. And the pool was smaller than most I have seen in a backyard in Perth.
The only redeeming feature of this "Motel" is its location. It is opposite a great children's playground, oval and skate park. You can also walk to the restaurants for dinner and the shops.
