“Great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012 via mobile

This small roadside/ garden motel would rival many other locations. It's charm is the individual attention paid to the design and comfort of each room. It feels like a small apartment. At least ours did! We had a private terrace as all rooms do- with access to a BBQ if we felt like it and a fully functional set of kitchen implements including fridge and microwave.
The rooms have a nice rustics charm with brick face bring the predominant choice.
The new owners are very welcoming and go out if their way to inform you and assist you in your exploration of the Margaret river area.
If only they could control the weather!

We would reccomend it and would visit again.

We stayed here one night and would have loved to have been able to stay more. Beautiful large room, very clean, gorgeous garden, friendly owner. The book of restaurant menus helped us select 'Settlers Tavern' = one of the best meals I had in Western Australia. Would definitely stay here again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

We stayed in Margaret River for two nights only. On arrival, we were greated by Denise who provided us with a map detailing all the wineries, local produce places and attractions in the area. She also provided us with a book of restaurant menus which was extremely helpful because we always have trouble finding a great place to eat.

The rooms were great, each has their own outdoor coffee table and chairs. Because it's just out of the main shopping strip (10min walk) it's really quiet. Mini fridge, and microwave in the room plus free WIFI.

We really enjoyed our stay and reccomend this place to anyone.

What a great place to stay on a trip to Margaret river! Stayed two nights with my dad in August. Rooms were spotless with really interesting interior design, super comfortable and offered all that was necessary and more for a relaxed stay. Special mention to the owners for the warmest of welcomes they provided. Approachable, friendly and incredibly helpful, they know exactly what they're doing! Would stay here again in a flash!

My hubby and I stayed at Edge by the forest during our south west Australia trip. It was a good experience to find such a comfortable and cozy place after a driving and sight seeing day. Room Is very clean and comfortable and well equipped with aircon and free wifi. We both commented the experience is way better than earlier Novotel experience in Perth. Also, no need to mention it's great value for money choice during travel.

we stayed only one night, and were very impressed.
Small motel with only a few rooms, but well cleaned and friendly staff.
slightly out of the main street, but still convenient I would recommend this place very highly

The owners of this small hostel went out of there way to make us welcome even though we were only there one night. The heating was on when we arrived, they lent us a torch so we could walk up to Wino's for dinner and they have a good range of DVD's available to borrow during your stay. Would defintley come back again. Probably best for shorter stays or people who plan to eat out most meals although there are basic breakfast facilities in the room too. Thanks for a pleasant stay!
