Very friendly, close to town and a lovely spot to stay for short trip. The staff gave lots of tips about the area and were happy to help. Room itself is average but clean and fine as a base to explore the south west.

Pleasant stay @Edge of the Forest! We arrived late at night, past the reception open timing.. But they made prior arrangements to allow us to check in to our room effortlessly. The room was clean, nice and cosy. Love the deco of the place which makes this place so mesmerizing 😍

My friend and I stayed for three nights in the queen triple room at Edge of the Forest. The walk to town was very quick and there is some beautiful bushwalks behind the motel. The owners gave us wonderful suggestions for food, vineyards and sites, which were very much appreciated.

Really close to town, managers were really helpful, rooms were clean and tidy, free bottle of wine on arrival - what more could you ask for. Loved our stay there and will book again the next time I'm down. The only small negative was that the rooms were a little cold.
