This is a beautiful little place just on the way into town (walking distance to the Bakery! And also places to eat). We booked with a late arrival and staff were more than helpful in assisting with this. Very friendly, and it didn't feel like staying somewhere foreign, kind of like a little home away from home! Very reasonable price...

Many thanks Danielle for your lovely review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and felt at home. We appreciate your comments regarding double glazing, we have installed sound-proofing glass to the sliding doors to assist with the traffic noise, however double glazing would obviously be a better option. Regards Denise & Alan

On our arrival we were greeted by Denise who was just great. She spent a whole load of time explaining the area and what there was to see and do (no small feat in Margaret river). We were then shown to our room, number 4 facing the highway. When booking we had looked at trip advisor and been warned that...

We could not fault this motel just on the edge of Margaret River. We had two rooms with garden views which had huge comfortable beds, good heating and lighting and very very well equipped with coffee, tea, microwave and daily fresh milk. The owners are charming and there is a huge selection of DVDs to play in your room.

Edge of the Forest has always been our go-to place whenever we are looking for a place to stay.

There are only six units in this complex so there is no overcrowding and you feel like you are in the wild despite being only a stroll away from Margaret River. The rooms have all your necessary needs including free wifi and the balcony has a beautiful setting with parrots sharing your space for breakfast.
