Great host, location and accommodation
Great find for a comfortable stay in Margaret River. The motel is simple, but clean and very comfortable. Steve is a great host (as is Clover the dog) and very knowledgeable about the area, with great recommendations for what to see and where to go.The town is within walking distance and the two closest eateries, The Brewhouse and Swings and Roundabouts, were good. Would definitely recommend.

Like at Home
A wonderful place, surrounded by greenery and yet close to the village. Everything is well maintained, you have a separate terrace for each room and Steve is a great host on site. A friendly and open welcome, gave suggestions on what we could do, you just feel at home.


Super accommodation in a great location.
This accommodation is brilliantly presented, with super comfortable beds, air-dried linen, private outdoor space ,and all the equipment for a perfect stay. The garden for Bar-b-ques, and watching the birds is a bonus.
Our host Steve was absolutely fantastic, providing great local information and going the extra mile in every way.

We had an excellent stay, the owner was extremely helpful & accommodating. The room itself was clean, comfortable & everything we needed.



Jan, 2023
Room was excellent and very clean. Had everything we needed. Super location – we were able to walk into Margaret River centre for breakfast, dinner etc (10 min walk). Keyless entry to the room was a great feature. Would highly recommend Edge of the Forest Motel, Steve was very welcoming and friendly and was able to advise us on some super places to check out while we were there.

A wonderful little place in Margaret River. Close to all facilities and walking trails. Host Steve is very helpful and personable. Highly recommended.



“Very comfortable clean unit, short walking distance to town and surrounded by well kept gardens and natural forest. Steve the manager is very personable.
All at very reasonable rates.

Great place to stay
Had a lovely stay with friends at the edge of the Forrest motel. Contact before we arrived was super quick and when we turned up we were offered a more suitable room than one of the ones I’d booked, which was really kind and unexpected. No extra charge. Lovely rooms, comfy beds. Steve was super friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble even brollies to walk to the restaurant when it rained! Lovely garden as well just perfect for a wine post visiting the local wineries. Also the added bonus of clover the dog cuddles! I’ve staying in margs before but not at the motel, would definitely go back. Thanks so much for a lovely stay.

“Stunning Location”
My husband and I love this motel, we always come here on our trips, only six rooms, so very peaceful and quiet. The rooms are spotlessly clean and spacious, with everything you need including a microwave and toaster. There is a beautiful little communal garden with a lush lawn, surrounded by shady trees, a perfect spot to sit and chill out or read a book, enjoy a glass of wine. There are many walking trails around the motel, which is great, you can leave the car behind. One very short trail leads you to the Margaret River Brewery, good food, good beer, a fire, love this place. The owner Steve is very friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, he has a good knowledge of the local area. We highly recommend this beautiful little motel, such a relaxing place to stay.

Perfect Getaway

A memorable stay. Steve is a warm welcoming and friendly host.

The rooms are perfect – clean and everything and more is provided. Quiet and directly backs on to a beautiful forest which is perfect for walks and runs.

The location is ideal – a short walk to shops, restaurants and cafes.

We will return for sure!

We enjoyed the stay very much and my wife even said “This is the best motel we’ve ever stayed at in a regional location”. Well done!



Aug 17, 2022

Thanks very much, Steve. We are delighted with our room, and hope to have the opportunity to stay here again, and to recommend it to our friends. Thanks for your  valuable advice too on what to do and to eat in Margaret River 😊
With best regards

I just wanted to let you know that we really enjoyed staying at your motel – the room was great! We look forward to staying there again in the future.
Thanks so much,

Wonderful stay!
No issues and would definitely recommend your motel. Very clean and comfortable with amazing walks through the forest nearby.

Thank you so much for a lovely stay! We will definitely recommend you to anyone we know that’s looking for accommodation in Margaret River.

My mother and I have travelled all over the world, recently returning to Australia from 4 years in the UK. Neither of us have enjoyed a hotel as much as we enjoyed staying at yours last night. My mother would love to thank you for the sun dried sheets particularly! 
You have created something incredibly special, beautiful and comfortable.
Thank you so much for the care you have put in and the haven you have created!
We both look forward to returning when we can, together and individually.
Have a wonderful week.
Many thanks,

Absolutely recommend staying here!

I had a perfect stay here!

Steve is an amazing host and always on the lookout to make your stay as comfortable as possible, he also has a lot of tips on activities and provided a bike for me.

The Room was really really clean and comfortable, the garden was well kept and all of the plants around the motel made for a really cozy atmosphere.
