Staid there for a couple of days in September and while the weather could have been better our choice of accommodation in the "Edge of the Forest" was spot on.

The lovely owner were helpful and friendly and our studio was spacious, clean, well appointed and well worth the money.

The location just outside of Margaret River is idyllic and really at the edge of the forest as advertised with a nice little hike just around the corner.

On the other hand the "Edge of the Forest" is just a short 10min walk into town and to a number of fine restaurants, which meant no driving was required to mar the enjoyment of the fine local wines.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would definitely stay there again should we have to good fortune to return to Margaret River.

Thank you for your great comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed your time in Margaret River.
The weather this year has been particularly wet and cold:( However the stunning scenery of green fields and abundant water wouldn't look the same without the rain.
The walks from the Motel around the Margaret River are beautiful and provide wonderful photo opportunities.
We would love to have you stay with us again if returning to our beautiful region.
The beaches are amazing, great body surfing, if you can get here during the Summer months.

I knew from the moment we drove into the complex we had made a great choice.
The grounds are beautiful and everything very well appointed. Denise is both welcoming and very helpful with her wealth of knowledge of the area.
The accommodation was a dream - spacious bedroom/kitchen area with the most delightful smell when we first entered. Both the bedroom and the bathroom would do any home proud.

Denise has put together a very informative brochure with lots of helpful hints on walks etc. If there is something that is not covered in the brochure then she is only too happy to be of help.

There is a little bit of traffic noise from the road and some from the 'plumbing' throughout the units but nothing to worry about.

Situated on the edge of the town of Margaret River within easy walking distance it is the perfect location with many beautiful walks nearby.
I wish we had been able to stay longer and if ever in the Margaret River area again I will certainly be returning to Edge of the Forest.

Thank you for your wonderful comments.
As there is so much to see and do in this beautiful region and everyone has different ideas of what they want to see and do, we have been busy getting out and about ourselves to discover the delights so we can pass on the information to our guests.
We have wonderful housekeepers who are proud to work here and keep the rooms clean.
As we are on the Highway there are certain times of the day when the traffic is busy, which makes this little town the thriving metropolis that it is.

Had 3 nights here while in the Margaret River. Excellent clean, friendly, customer focused,place to stay. It has been recently refurbished with no expense spared. Everything is done to make one feel comfortable and welcome. Great outdoor living area in a beautiful garden. The care and cleanliness of the place is absolutely pristine. The owners are very helpful with information of the area.

Thank you so much for staying with us and for your great comments.
The refurbishments have given the motel a fresh feel.
It was lovely to see you out enjoying the beautiful trail walks around the motel.
Would love to see both again if you are ever back in Margaret River.

This motel is always a delight to stay in. The Hosts are highly professional and accommodating - their personal touch makes for a great place to stay. The recently renovated rooms are well furnished and roomy - ideal for a stay of longer than a few nights. The rooms are more like luxury chalets and much less like a typical motel. Parking is convenient and the Forest outlook and atmosphere is great. The expansive video collection for free use of guests is amazing. Wireless is Free. There is a microwave and a Fridge so no need to always eat out. The Motel can provide a goods value continental breakfast too. An electric blanket was a true comfort. A great place business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Some rooms have an outdoor seating area - good for summer or if you are a smoker perhaps.

Thanks Leon for staying with us again and we look forward to your next visit.
The personal touches seem to be appreciated by most guests.
The Forest outlook and atmosphere is very relaxing and the birdlife abundant.
All of our rooms have decked patios with outdoor settings overlooking the gardens:)

We did not do a lot of research into accommodation in the Margaret River area and more or less stumbled upon ‘The Edge of the Forest’. Right at the outset I must say we were not disappointed and Denise, our host, was extremely helpful.

Denise sat down with us and together we drew up a plan for our time in the Margaret River area. There is actually so much to see and do we regretted not staying longer than two nights but our two month trip around Australia has many such places.

There is ample car parking and a lovely garden area with a BBQ.

Room – Accommodation is within a purpose built block. The room we had was well appointed, spacious and ideal for a self catering break. As you will see from the photographs it really oozes luxury.

En-Suite – Pure luxury. Clean, modern and the shower was excellent.

Noise – There is some traffic noise from the nearby highway and unfortunately there is a ‘lot’ of water noise from adjoining rooms. This however is to be expected in this type of structure.

Breakfast – You are on your own. The small kitchenette however is well equipped and there is a microwave.

Checking In and Out – Denise is charming and would score 5+ out of 5. As indicated above she is extremely helpful, very knowledgeable and a good communicator. With Denise it is very much a ‘personal’ touch and for the tourist that makes a huge difference.

Location – Not only is the establishment on the ‘edge’ of the forest but it is on the edge of the town. That is NOT a problem however as the location provides one with the best of both worlds and believe me that is a bonus.

Dinner – Denise has the ‘low down’ on dinner out from budget to 5*. Also there is ample detail in the local directory in the room.

Generally – I have no hesitation in recommending the ‘Edge of the Forest’ and if ever that way again I will be staying there.
I have attached some photographs.

Thank you for your wonderful comments and for staying with us.
We want everyone to get the most out of the time that they are staying in our beautiful region and
helping guests to plan their time whilst here is a pleasure.
We are just starting to have a few warmer sunny days so the use of the BBQ will soon be in full swing. It is great to watch our guests relaxing in the garden.
We will look into the "shower noise" to see if we can rectify.
