Extremely clean and well presented! Steve is so kind, welcoming and extremely helpful! He also gave us lots of great suggestions on things to do whilst we were down there! I wouldn’t stay anywhere else it was a super lovely experience! I would recommended to everyone! I’ve stayed in a lot of places down south and this has to be the best and the cleanest of them all! Also is about a 5-10 minute walk from the town. The walk is lovely and I definitely enjoyed that daily! ☺️

My husband and I love this motel, we always come here on our trips, only six rooms, so very peaceful and quiet. The rooms are spotlessly clean and spacious, with everything you need including a microwave and toaster. There is a beautiful little communal garden with a lush lawn, surrounded by shady trees, a perfect spot to sit and chill out or read a book, enjoy a glass of wine. There are many walking trails around the motel, which is great, you can leave the car behind. One very short trail leads you to the Margaret River Brewery, good food, good beer, a fire, love this place. The owner Steve is very friendly and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble, he has a good knowledge of the local area. We highly recommend this beautiful little motel, such a relaxing place to stay.

This place is everything you need for the perfect stay in Margaret River! It’s walking distance to the town centre, with a beautiful secluded bush walk at the back door. Next door to a fantastic brewery, and distillery, this motel is situated in the ideal location! The rooms were very clean and spacious, and included many small welcomed extras to make the stay memorable and cosy. The staff were so lovely and personable, attending to any need with a smile on their face! Fantastic communal bbq area positioned within a leafy green courtyard. Each room has its own outdoor seating area, which is secluded from other guests. This accomodation is such a hidden gem, making you feel relaxed and off the beaten track. The wonderful staff, amazing location and enchanting greenery have made this experience very memorable! We cannot recommend EOTF enough! We will be back :)

We had 3 nights at this gorgeous little boutique motel and couldn’t fault it. Only 5min walk into the very quaint town of Margaret River with many wonderful restaurants & cafes. Our room spacious, clean & well equipped for longer stays, great beds & individual balcony overlooking lush gardens. Clover (the dog) melted my heart & wish I could of squeezed her into my suitcase!!! Steve the host was friendly, knowledgeable & charming, from the minute we walked in were well taken care of. A lovely stay, thank you Steve & Clover!

Accomodation handy to centre of town, excellent service and friendly staff, clean and tidy in a quiet location. Only downfall, no kitchen sink to wash up your dirty dishes in the kitchenette. Would stay there, again, as the manager is a wealth of knowledge in the region.
