Edge of the Forest Motel & Cottage
Ranked #3 of 10 Hotels in Margaret River
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 April 2017

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 families or a group of friends visiting Margaret River. Everything was very clean and well appointed. The property includes a lovely outdoor area with gas BBQ. The kitchen has all the crockery and utensils you need when holidaying, as well as a microwave, stove and full size fridge. A short stroll (<100m) via the back of the property lands you at The Brewhouse - serving great food and drinks. I highly recommend EOTF. The staff are always very accommodating and knowledgeable about the regions wineries and many tourist attractions. Definitely will stay again.

Room Tip: Cottage is on Bussell Hwy, so take ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

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 out.

As for the property itself, well the room was of decent size, the bed comfortable and being one of only six units you felt private. Parking was at side or the room. There was also facilities for cooking, which we took advantage of one night to get a nice pre-prepared Indian feast together.

A quick wander up the hill and you were in the town. Plenty of offerings for meals and lots of shopping. The brewery right next door to the motel offered a fantastic IPA - very very nice drop indeed.

The area itself is quite beautiful - food and wine as well as beaches and lovely scenery. We enjoyed our stay very much, with EOTF a nice base to stay. Well worth a look....

Room Tip: Don't stress about the talk of traffic noise.

Thank you so much for you wonderful review and we're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. As the rooms are equipped with microwave, crockery, cutlery, kettle, toaster and barbeque facilities it is quite easy to prepare a light meal as you said. We do indeed live in a beautiful part of the world. Cheers Denise & Alan

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 .
