This was a great base for exploring the Margaret River region. Good value deals, friendly host and very well maintained rooms and grounds. The forest is immediately behind the accommodation and Brew House brewery next door has excellent food and beers
Very friendly host and comfortable stay.”My wife and I stayed at the motel for 3 nights. During checking in, Denise the host, was very welcoming and provided many good advise on where to visit ( free maps provided ) and where to eat around Margaret River ( discount name cards and menus available ). The room is very new, clean and comfortable. There’s also a folder in the room containing the Menus and pricing of the many restaurants around Margaret River area. Denise is very knowledgeable of the Margaret River area. Whenever I tell her where I will be going to visit for the day. She is aways able to advise on the good photo shoot points, great places to eat and views to enjoy. The motel is just next to the Bussell Highway and very easy to locate. It’s only 5 minutes walk to the Margaret River Town Center. There’s a big Coles supermarket in town. There’s only one small point to note. Since the Motel is very close to the main road, do expect some traffic noise. However it did not border me and my wife much, since we are used to living in the city.
Our 3rd Stay.Once again we enjoyed a very relaxing and comfortable stay at “The Edge of the Forest”. Very friendly and helpful owners along with the close proximity to the town centre make this a “look forward to” stay each year. Highly recommend!
This motel is situated in the perfect location for Margaret River and all it has to offer. Our room (No. 6) was just lovely and we just wished we were staying longer. The owner Denise pointed out all the local attractions and suggested what we should see on a limited timeframe. We also booked a half day tour with McLeod Tours through the motel and got a 10% discount. The tour is well worth doing and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Also, make sure to have breakfast or lunch in The Bakery which is in Margaret River town – just beautiful! I certainly hope that I get to visit Margaret River again in the future and if I do I will definitely be booking the Edge of the Forest Motel.
Denise gave us a great welcome & we were sorry we didn’t get a chance to say goodbye due to very early leaving. Nothing was too much trouble. She was cheery & generous with her advice & thanks to her we saw Roos & Rays & the Cape between two oceans & more besides. I was able put my washing on her line which was so appreciated. She was a perfect host. Thank you so much Denise & sorry we did not get to say goodbye.
Great place to stay ”We spent a couple of nights in the family room at this motel. The owners were very helpful and pointed out some local places of interest which we would have otherwise missed and were definitely worth visiting. The room was very comfortable, clean, well set up with everything you need, and also had a balcony with table and chairs outside the door. Collection of free DVDs you can watch as well. Beautiful garden and parking. Very quiet at night even though it’s on the main road, and just a short walk to restaurants etc in town. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again next time we visit. Deborah M
We stayed for 2 nights at Edge of the Forest and had an excellent time. Denise & Alan are very helpful in providing directions as well as suggestions on where to go. The room is clean and comes with breakfast and a bottle of wine! Parking is also free at the premises! The location is good too as it’s 5 minutes walk to town. There is a walking trail behind the motel and we had a nice morning walk! There is also a very nice brewery next door! Overall, we had a fantastic time at Margaret River! Hope to be back sometime in the future!
Edge of the Forest is situated just at the edge of town. Surounded in the forest but very close walking distance to town and restaurants. The room I stayed might have been small, Motel room. But very comfortable and clean! Serviced every day, clean smell from the forest and the outdoor patio that each room had was a plus! Friendly owners that tend to your every need. Recommend highly if staying in Margaret River.
Perfect Stay. We stayed 2 nights last week. The room was perfectly lay out and very well appointed – items placed in room with great care and thoughtfulness. Alan took every effort to make us feel comfortable. There are many lighting options in the room, and everything you might need. Good range of good quality movies to choose from in the free DVD library. Alan was extremely helpful in orienting us to the general area. We only had time for one walk – the short one nearby but it was great…we did it 3 times over. The room has a thorough list of eateries in the area…and so many other helpful details are provided. Short walk to main shopping area…we had a perfect stay. It was just too short.
Fantastic base in Margaret River Well located – with forest walks and a pub on your doorstep and a short walk into town. Walking, Beaches, sunsets, wine tasting and more are all an easy drive away. The staff are very helpful offering advice, picnic stuff and DVDs. The electric blankets were a great bonus as the temperature does drop at night. We had a great holiday! Thank you
