Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 July 2017 via mobile

This was a great base for exploring the Margaret River region. Good value deals, friendly host and very well maintained rooms and grounds. The forest is immediately behind the accommodation and Brew House brewery next door has excellent food and beers.

My wife and I stayed at the motel for 3 nights. During checking in, Denise the host, was very welcoming and provided many good advise on where to visit ( free maps provided ) and where to eat around Margaret River ( discount name cards and menus available ).

The room is very new, clean and comfortable. There's also a folder in the room containing the Menus and pricing of the many restaurants around Margaret River area.

Denise is very knowledgeable of the Margaret River area. Whenever I tell her where I will be going to visit for the day. She is aways able to advise on the good photo shoot points, great places to eat and views to enjoy.

The motel is just next to the Bussell Highway and very easy to locate. It's only 5 minutes walk to the Margaret River Town Center. There's a big Coles supermarket in town.

There's only one small point to note. Since the Motel is very close to the main road, do expect some traffic noise. However it did not border me and my wife much, since we are used to living in the city.

Room Tip: Very comfortable. Good shower pressure. DVD available for loan. WIFI is fast. No sink for washing o...

A nice very clean little motel in a great part of the world with friendly owners. The back units have a nice tranquil setting. There is a pleasant little outdoor patio for each unit with a peaceful forest setting. Everything you could ask for as far as room amenities go and the only small detractors were that the walls seemed just a little thin allowing one to hear the conversation of those next door and the location is a little tricky and dodgy to access, especially coming from town, when traffic was busy on the highway. Walking into town may also be a bit of a challenge after dark with no defined footpath at the very edge of town and a road crossing to negotiate but it's not too far from the restaurants . Having said that, things quietened down at night and sleep quality was good on a very comfortable bed.

We weren't there long enough to give a detailed review but wouldn't be unhappy to stay again if in Margaret River. If it's clean and cosy you want then this property certainly suits.

Room Tip: See if you can get a cottage towards the rear away from the highway. It might be even quieter

Very well-maintained property, with everything we required. Great to be able to walk to the Brewhouse. Good central location to all the region's attractions. Would definitely stay again on a subsequent trip.

Edge of the Forest is situated just at the edge of town. Surounded in the forest but very close walking distance to town and restaurants. The room I stayed might have been small, Motel room. But very comfortable and clean! Serviced every day, clean smell from the forest and the outdoor patyo that each room had was a plus! Friendly owners that tend to your every need.
Recommend highly if staying in Margaret River.
