Motel is well presented and looked after. However, if booking do not book the family room at the front. This is very close to the road and very noisy in early morning and in the evening when trucks are rumbling past. Other rooms at the back looked much quieter but unfortunately we weren't there.

Thank you for your review. Fortunately there is a by-pass road being built to take heavy traffic off the Highway which will be fantastic for the accommodation providers on the Highway. This however has increased the trucks whilst building the road :(

We stayed for 2 nights and found the hosts charming and the accomodation comfortable, whilst breakfasting on our verandah we were fortunate to spot a blue wren and his mate flitting around the garden. As long as you are not in your best footwear the walk to town is easy and at night, reasonably lit. If beer is your thing...

Thank you so much Emma for your lovely review. The weather has been fantastic for a barbeque and many guests have taken the opportunity to dine in the garden. Most guests find the complimentary continental breakfast basket included with direct bookings is a great start to the day.

We stayed at the Edge of the Forest for three nights at the end of January and throughly enjoyed the experience. Alan and Denise (the owners) were very friendly and we put their knowledge and advice of the local area, to good use. The location was perfect, the Brewhouse was vertually next door and the centre of town was just...

Edge of the Forest is exactly that, situated on the edge of town and the forest. Really friendly owners who are a wealth of information on local attractions and things to do in and around Margaret River. This being our first trip to this area, the knowledge provided set us on a really good path for the brief 3 days...

Lovely gardens for breakfast or BBQ, on the edge of the forest and only 60s to the Brewhouse or 5 mins to MR. Nice rooms with excellent bathrooms. Good breakfast included. Owners are very helpful. Always wanted to stay here but it's been booked out every other time. Glad we made it this time.

Comfortable small motel, more like a small apartment. Denise was very informative and gave us lots of info on surrounding areas which we followed. A bit far from the town centre which made us take the car. Although on the main road, traffic noise minimal.

Great place to stay in Margaret River. Surrounded by beautiful forest and yet walking distance to a Brewhouse. Very comfortable with the feel of having more privacy than at other hotels. We had breakfast included, which was great prior to going on a full day wine tour. Would definitely recommend.
