Edge of the Forest Motel & Cottage
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Margaret River
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

The days at Edge of the Forest have been the most pleasant days on our trip around WA. The room was big enough, the bathroom modern with plenty of space and the free internet connection was the fastest on the whole trip. The town center can be reached by a short walk or a 1 minute car drive.
Thanks to Alan for all the valuable tips on where to go and what to visit. We also enjoyed the barbies in the garden.

All after all - a great place to stay! :)

Had such a lovely welcome from Denise, who showed us to a beautiful room with a brilliant bathroom with a walk in shower. We had a very pleasant seated area outside our room overlooking the pretty garden. The room also contains an information folder with a map of Margaret River and a menu from all the restaurants, which means you can decide where you want to eat, and the location of the restaurant before you leave. We were also informed of a lovely walk by the river which took about 40 minutes, it was truly beautiful walking through the forest next to the river, so if you get the chance you must do it.

The forest walk along the River is really lovely and most guests who choose to do this walk say the same. Thank you for your lovely comments regarding the room and garden. Hope to see you both back again some time.

This motel has an excellent location with pretty clean rooms. The welcome from the owners was quite exceptional. The facilities in the room exceeded our expectations.

Thank you for your great comments and thank you for staying with us. The location is great being a short walk to the centre of town but on the Edge Of The Forest with the forest walk trails along the river near by. Hope the rest of your holiday was wonderful.

We had SUCH a great stay at the Edge of the Forest! It was the best place we stayed during our trip. When we first arrived, Denise greeted us with a map and took so much time explaining all of the "must dos" in Margaret River. We did everything she told us to do, and we loved everything she recommended! Denise and her husband have thought of everything to make their guests feel right at home. I loved how there are dishes and silverware in the room so that you can bring back your goodies from the various wineries and food stores and have a feast! We had our best meals right out on our little porch. It was fun watching the beautiful birds in the trees. The yard is just beautiful and very private. The room was cozy and very comfortable. I highly recommend staying at the Edge of the Forest!

You visited us at such a beautiful time of the year and we are happy that you enjoyed all the "must dos" that we advised. The little patios are full every afternoon with guests doing just what you did enjoying their daily spoils and of course watching the beautiful parrots. Thank you so much for recommending us. Hope you can come back some time.

Room and facilities were perfect for our couple of days in MR. Exactly what we needed to come back to after a hard day wine and beer tasting. Clean, tidy, bbq facilities, gracious and helpful staff, and only a 10min walk to town. Highly recommended!

From the minute we checked in my partner and I were greeted with warm hospitality, a detailed map of the region and also tips on where to go. What a lovely place; close to everything, lush surroundings, and relaxing. Thankyou so much Denise! Robyn & Brett

We appreciate your fantastic comments so thank you:) The weather is fabulous now and the outdoor decks and bbq are getting good use. The forest walk along the river with the sun coming through the trees making everything look beautiful is just fabulous at the moment.
Hope to have you stay again some other time :)
