I was so grateful for owner's kindness. Room was much better than the pictures I saw in website. Very clean and tidy. Location is awesome, which takes less than 2 minutes to the town. Barbecue area is wonderful as well. I definitely visit again. Highly recommend!!!

Thank you for your lovely comments and high recommendation.
The barbeque area is wonderful as you say and as the weather warms up will be in full use.
Our housekeepers are very diligent with keeping our rooms clean.

This motel was a delight. an easy walk or car ride to Margaret River proper. The service was excellent for what we wanted, available when you want it and non-intrusive when you didn't. The beds were heaven...best sleep I've had in years. Wall mounted tv with endless access to dvds. Electric blankets and air-con/heater...we were there in winter so yummy and warm.

It had a delicious soft smell...fresh and inviting when we arrived and whenever we returned from a day out. All in all we had a really lovely time at the Edge of the Forest and have no trouble recommending it. We will be going back!

Room Tip: There are rooms closer to the road than others, ours was close but with the door shut we could hear...

Me and my friend booked a room for a night and even though it was a short stay, the owner on reception was super friendly, and even asked us if we would want an upgrade, since it was off season and there were other rooms available. Clean, comfortable, cozy... we could even borrow some dvds to watch during the night... what more can we ask for?

Lovely location & clean, comfortable room. The owner on reception was very welcoming & helpful. You can walk to town & it's next to a park & walking tracks. Only downside is some road noise which does quieten down at night & noise from the next room, though that will depend on who us in there! Overall it was great.

Thank you for your review. Being located on the highway does create some road noise, as you said this does quieten at night. Generally not a problem as guests are out and about during the day. Occasionally we do have noisy guests who are not considerate, but luckily this is not very often:)

Stayed here for 2 nights in March in a Queen Room

Pros:
- Friendly & very helpful owners: Always willing to help & will go out of their way to assist. We asked them a million & one questions and also asked if we could wash our cars. No hesitation and even provided us with soap & a pail. They were also very sweet & left notes in front of our room.
- Large room with almost anything you could need: No proper kitchen. However, there was plenty of information for take out, microwave, TV etc. Beds were very comfy too.
- Has parking space & relatively close to the town centre.

Cons:
- Truly can't think of any!

We stayed 5 nights here and were very comfortable. We never expect motel rooms to be huge, but these were thoughtfully renovated and stylishly furnished, so seemed larger than they were. The owners, Alan and Denise, were thoughtful too - fresh milk, beds made and washing up done for us each day. We stayed in the middle of the coldest winter for some time and were very happy here. I'd imagine it would be even more enjoyable in summer.

Room Tip: Best rooms are near the back with views over the garden.
