Very helpful staff Although they do nit have a dining room have arranged for discounts at a number of restaurants in the town .will recommend tours and attractions worth visiting. Lovely outside BBQ area which would be good in warmer weather

The owners are thoughtful, helpful and extremely well organised. Our room, overlooking a lovely garden, with a balcony where we had breakfast listening to the birds, was very well provisioned. Unfortunately, even in a room in the back, we could still hear traffic noise as the highway is very close. The motel is in easy walking distance into the town...

This motel is situated in the perfect location for Margaret River and all it has to offer. Our room (No. 6) was just lovely and we just wished we were staying longer. The owner Denise pointed out all the local attractions and suggested what we should see on a limited timeframe. We also booked a half day tour with McLeod...

Very convenient location, walking distance from the Bakery, Brewhouse, Woolworths, town centre and yet adjoining (thats why the name) a forest and the River walk trail. Hosts were helpful - large DVD collection, well equipped barbecue in the garden made for a nice DIY dinner experience and breakfast was functional. The complimentary bottle of local wine was most welcome.

Beautiful Motel, a little bit outside of Margaret River Town. Friendly host. The Motel has everything you need while on a roadtrip: it’s clean, fridge, nice room, free parking, fast and free Wifi. Around Margaret River you can do heaps of amazing things.

I have stayed at EOTF a couple of times in the lovely, clean and comfortable motel rooms. This time we were lucky enough to be able to stay in the new EOTF Cottage for 4 nights. The cottage is freshly painted and tastefully decorated. It is self-serviced and is a great addition to EOTF Motel. It would be great for...

Edge of The Forest is well located at the bottom of the main road through the town, a short walk only. We stayed in the front "family room" and yes, as other reviewers have mentioned, there was some traffic noise at times. Certainly not too bad though, with most truck traffic off the road by the time it was lights...

A great place to rest whilst visiting the Margaret River region. The units are super clean and comfy and the owners knowledge of the area was so helpful in our planning. Many spots visited that we would have missed had we not stayed here .
