Edge of the Forest Motel & Cottage
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Margaret River
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 March 2014

We had a three night stay and would highly recommend the Edge of the Forest. The room was beautifully clean and comfortable. The owners pay great attention to detail which shows through. There is a small mature garden at the back of the motel which was a lovely place to barbecue and sit and eat and watch the birds. We used the BBQ one evening. It was spotlessly clean and sauces, implements etc were provided. Dishes and utensils are provided in the room along with a microwave and fridge. The owners were very friendly and informative about the area. We would use this motel again when visiting Margaret River.

Thank you for your recommendation and comments regarding our rooms being beautifully clean and comfortable, this is something we pride ourselves on. The BBQ and back garden are getting a lot of use as the weather is warm and just keeps staying beautiful.

We stayed here for two nights in March. The standard of room was very high, with furnishings to rival those of a five star hotel. The place was spotlessly clean. Very helpful owners who kindly spent time with us explaining the various nearby places to visit.

The location is good, just a few minutes walk into town. The Motel does not serve breakfast, but there are several eateries in town which do.

Our room (and several if not all the other rooms) had a little seating area outside so you can sit with a glass of wine and watch the parakeets visit the garden. There is also a BBQ and table for 6 in the main garden which is free to use.

We enjoyed our stay and would return.

Hope this is helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the garden.

Many thanks for taking the time for your review.
We actually do provide a Continental Breakfast which is delivered to the room as we don't have a dining room, but as you point we are just a few minutes walk to town with many eateries serving a wonderful cooked breakfast.
We often have guests travelling together who find the communal table in the garden a great option to get together at the end of the day to bbq or just chill out with a glass of wine or two.

We really enjoyed our short stay in Edge of the Forest. It is one of the best place we had in Australia so far. The room was almost perfect: spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, equipment (shower, fridge, etc) in perfect condition and a high standard of quality. The motel is situated just 5 min walk of the center of Margaret River. We recommand it without hesitation.

A group of us booked out this accommodation for my birthday, which was well organised. The rooms were cosy and comfortable, and a 10 minute walk into town. The alcoves out the front were great for eating breakfast. The proprietors were lovely, hospitable and very accommodating. The room on the highway as a little noisy, but the other rooms were great. A lovely stay, great if you are out seeing the sites of Margaret River, and want a convenient, comfortable place to sleep.

Room Tip: One of the middle rooms not the front one on the highway.

Drove down from Perth to MR and stayed for one night. Arrived at noon and even though check-in is at 2pm, Hayley was really accommodating and very efficiently prepared our room. By 1230, we were shown our room at the rear facing the lovely garden.

The room with a queen and single bed was clean and comfortable. The toilet looked refurbished and very clean.

Denise was really helpful recommending what to do in MR. You don't need to visit MR Visitor Centre at all.

Even though it was beside a highway, I had a good night sleep. Didn't hear noise from the road at all. Pay a little more for the room facing the garden. It's all with it.

My mom loved the coffee provided in the room. Thanks!

The rooms overlooking the back garden are very popular and all have King Beds, 2 have a single as well. The bathrooms were replaced in May 2013 so are indeed still fresh.
There is so much to see and do in this beautiful region that we try to help guests get the most out of their stay. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday.

I enjoyed my stay here, Denise was very helpful with winery suggestions for lunch - I went to Watershed which was excellent - and a lovely walk through the forest into town.

Bathroom look newly refurbished and everything was clean. As with all such properties, there is some noise from neigbouring rooms, but people seemed to settle down early and I didn't find this an inconvenience at all.

Location is just on the edge of the town by the forest (duh!), the garden area is well kept with new looking bbq facilities (which I didn't use).

Would recommend.

Thank you for staying with us and your review.
The food at Watershed is amazing and we are so happy that you enjoyed your lunch.
The forest walk is truly beautiful with some amazing photo opportunities.
We have wonderful housekeepers who do a really great job and are proud of their reputation.
The bbq is being well used at the moment whilst the weather is still warm.
