We stayed in the cottage next to the motel and it was perfect, so beautifully renovated and had everything you would need. We had 6 adults and 2 kids & 1 baby and weren’t squashed (though we are related 😉 the cottage backs on to the beautiful walks through the Margaret River Forest and it is less than 2 mins walk out the back gate to a great brewery 👍🏼
19 Jun 2018Booked this accommodation on Tripadvisor for two main reasons, location to town and the reviews. Both proved to be correct, resulting in an enjoyable stay. The people who run it are very friendly and helpful, walk to the Brewhouse about 100m away for excellent food, beers and wines, great walks to the river from behind the motel and about 10 mins stroll into the centre of town for meals and shopping. The rooms are ok, comfortable beds and modern bathroom with everything you need including a nice little sitting area out the front of the rooms. Very reasonable in price.
Stayed here for one night and everything was as hoped for. It’s literally at the edge of the forest so you’ve got the sounds, views and smells. The nearby road was quiet and night and a background hum in the morning. The proprietor was friendly and welcoming, wasted no time with her requirements and let us enjoy our stay. Room was spacious, bathroom renovated, bed surprisingly comfy. We travelend from Victoria with 3 hours time difference and expected to be up by 3. We woke at 5.15. Must be the fresh and nice smelling sheets! Winning. Room has all you could need, smart placement of lamps, water cooker and basic cutlery, small table and two chairs, silent fridge and large enough tv. Outside areas are nice and plenty, free parking is a plus, free wifi worked, but a bit spotty. Restaurants (plenty) are a 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk along a darkish road. Good choice to stay!

Beautiful, Peaceful & Welcoming I stayed at the Edge of the Forest for one weekend in Margret River and I had an excellent stay here. The owners were friendly and welcoming and offered many recommendations for things to see and do in the area. The rooms were clean with a nice amount of space. Our suite faced the garden and it was nice to sit outside there each morning with my coffee. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again and I would recommend it to my family and friends.

The cottage is perfect for a family or group of friends. Beautifully restored, a great location, plenty of space for everyone. The back and front yard is beautiful with its lovely gardens. The cottage had all the amenities we needed. We will definetly be back, Great property!
Such a lovely little motel on the edge of Margaret River township. Its small size lends to the charm of staying here. Really friendly welcome upon arrival and actually shown to our two rooms, rather than “here are your keys” and away you go. Rooms set around a compact grass courtyard, with a small table and a few chairs across from each room, so you could enjoy the fresh air and the quiet while having a drink. Rooms were excellent. Perfectly setup, modern and very clean. Could not have asked for more for the price paid. We walked the short distance into town for breakfast at the Margaret River Bakery, although the motel does offer breakfast packs. For dinner each night, it was a short 150 metre walk down a “fire trail” at the back of the motel to get to the local Brewhaus, where the beer and food were both excellent. Not even having to walk along the main road to get there was a nice way to end the day, although remember your mobile phone so you have the flashlight to light the way back later, as no lights on the trail.
14 July 2018We spent great night on Edge of the forest motel, the hotel is cosy and comfortable. With the bed warmer and heater, we can enjoy warm environments in the winter as well. The motel also have bbq equipment just outside our room and all utensils require for bbq activities. It located about 2 mins drive from Margaret river town which is very convenient location yet provide privacy. We also receive excellent service from staff , and overall, we want to thank you Edge of the forest provide great place for us to stay.
Thank you from SA! 5 Jan 2018Thank you to Denise & Alan, absolutely wonderful! Fantastic location, excellent rooms and a great courtyard. We will certainly stay here again! Close to the brew house and great bush walks. Close enough to walk into the town – 5/10mins.
We loved our stay at Edge of the Forest. The room was comfortable and clean, with beautiful quality towels and linen. The heating worked well and there was a kettle, small fridge and microwave. We received a complimentary bottle of wine, and daily continental breakfast which made the mornings easy. The DVD collection is a nice touch, we watched a movie every night. The location is good, right before you enter town, about a 10 minute walk in. You need to cross a busy road, but it’s not difficult when there’s a break in traffic. It’s not well lit at night, so keep the flashlight on your phone handy. The owners are genuinely friendly and happy to help with recommendations or travel plans. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again!
26 Mar 2018We stayed here for 2 nights while we explored Margaret River. The room and bed were lovely as was the bathroom. The shower worked well and we had good water pressure. The WiFi also worked well enough for email. When we checked in, the front desk lady gave us lots of good information about things to see in the area. She even told us where the local laundromat is located. Breakfast was delivered every morning – yogurt and milk and cereal. There is a good brewery/restaurant right next door with a path across the back of the property. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.
