Reviewed 2 July 2014

Enjoyed a 3 night stay at this hotel. No complaints. Affordable and one of the cheapest options we found. Room was clean and tidy and beds comfortable. Room heated up prior to our arrival.
Small kitchinette (insufficient to cook on). No sink so jug needed to be filled from bathroom.
Breakfast included - bread for toast, cereal, milk and juice. Basic but very adequate.
Very pleasant, friendly helpful people running the place. Helped with bookings and suggestions of places to go.
Would recommend. It's not five star accommodation but a lot cheaper than five star so good value for money.

Room Tip: rooms at the back are quieter, there is road noise in the front rooms (which isn't really a big...

Lovely simple accommodation close to town with helpful staff. Little but of road noise but you can choose a quiet room if desired. Bathroom toiletries provided plus hair dryer n selection of DVDs for when you get back home of a night. Little things like having cold water ready in the fridge for when you get there makes you feel looked after at edge of the forest. Great place for couples of any age

Thanks for your review and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We don't find the road noise and issue for most guests but the Rooms overlooking the back garden with King beds are the quietest.

Denise is a lovely, friendly host and very knowledgeable about the area. Accommodation was great, we had a garden view room which we can definitely recommend. Rooms are well appointed and we made good use of the shared BBQ facilities. Great location - easy 5 min walk into town

Room Tip: Book the Queen (Garden) room as they are quieter and have a nice outlook over the garden

Thank you so much for your review, we try to be a knowledgeable about the area as we can. The undercover BBQ is still being used even though Winter has well and truly set in:)
The rooms overlooking the back garden are very popular. We love the walk into the many restaurants & cafes in town.

Having arrived from an overnight flight and on the road for 3 hours to Margaret River, we were a little sad to be informed that we cant have an early check-in caused we were still early. Nevertheless, the team at Edge of the Forest really gave us a warm welcome with their sincere greetings and kind gestures. The housekeeping staff willingly put down her chores and gave us a short tour of the place and showed us the room that we will be staying for the night. She even suggested for us to grab some breakfast and enjoyed them in the courtyard.

The room was great for us, spacious, clean and well equipped. When we check-in that evening, the owner ensured that we were comfortable in the room and knew how to work the appliances and breakfast was served at night so that we could enjoy at any time the next morning, (and not be disturbed early in the morning). Thou we had the room facing the courtyard, traffic noise was quite audible but bearable (for the sake of convenience).

Despite the short stay, we had a nice stay here, thanks to the great atmosphere.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the courtyard are certainly less noise-intrusive.

Thank you for your review and we are happy that you had a nice stay and liked the atmosphere that we create. We try to accommodate early check-in where possible :) but it is not always possible as check-out is 10am.

Stayed recently for 2 nights at the Edge of the Forest Motel after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed.
We booked 2 King Rooms and found them to be extremely clean and comfortable, with everything you could wish for.
The owners were also very friendly and helpful.
We look forward to using the lovely BBQ area next time we stay.
We (both families) would definitely recommend staying here.

Room Tip: King Rooms at the back are quieter with a really nice outlook.

We went when the weather was cooler, but the room was fairly cold. Only until the last day did we realize the window had been open the entire time! Bed had heated blanket, so that was nice. Free DVDs to watch and also they stocked fresh milk for coffee in the fridge. My only complaint would be there was no shower door so the water went everywhere when we took a shower. Overall, very cozy and close to town.

Many thanks for staying with us and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We toyed with fitting doors to the shower, however find the trick with the shower is to have the shower head pointed toward the wall, rather than the shower opening. :)

We recommend this place wholeheartedly. Location is very convenient, close to town via car or walking. Our room was at the back, so it was very quiet. Lovely garden outside with beautiful green parrots. Room was excellent, clean, spacious, stylish and had everything you would want. Mini kitchen area made it easy to make coffee/tea, set up your own cereal, with room to spare. Staff were not the regular hosts, but were very friendly and helpful at all times. Really a special place to be and yet reasonably priced as well. Would certainly return.

Room Tip: Quieter at the back.
