Denise and Alan are lovely host they make everyone one feel so welcome. The gardens are absolutely beautiful, rooms so clean and well stocked with everything you need. BBQ area is a beautiful place to sit and read or just relax while you cook.
Thank you so much for a lovely relaxing and enjoyable stay. To make my day even better the birds come to eat so relaxing to watch

This is an amazing place - the ambience is just fantastic to be close to nature and the staff are simply wonderful and warm. We felt wonderfully at home and welcome and the location was just right for us as it was just a few minutes walk and we were in Town!

It’s been months since I was there and I’ve traveled to a couple of places since, and the joyful feeling I experienced while at Edge of the Forest has not been found elsewhere. We will stay at Edge of the Forest again when we are next back!!

Room Tip: Quiet surroundings and wonderfully warm service

Thank you so much Angela for your wonderful comments. We really enjoyed having you, your Son and Mother staying with us and seeing you enjoying the gardens each day as you relaxed on your patio overlooking the guest garden and barbeque area. We loved our chats about your exploits each day. Take Care Denise & Alan

Spotless and comfortable accommodation in well-kept grounds. Great location - sandwiched between forest and highway. Stroll out the back into the forest to explore tracks along the river, or take an easy 5 minute walk along the Bussell Highway path into Margaret River townsite.
Owners, Alan and Denise Wilkes were approachable and happy to answer any questions.
I highly recommend Edge of the Forest Motel.

It was our second visit back to Edge of the Forest, and once again it was a highlight of our trip to WA. Denise & Alan were wonderful hosts, offering some great tips on things to see and do in the area. The room was clean, cosy, well-equipped and we particularly loved spending time on the balcony and in the garden. A great place for a family stay - thank you.
