Thank you Fiona, for such a lovely stay. The view is stunning, a feast for the eyes, and a rest for the soul. The house is so comfortable, with a kitchen better equipped than mine. But most of all, we appreciated the offer to stoke the fire and warm the electric blankets ready for our return from a dinner out.... More

Thank you for that lovely review! Its nice to come back to a cosy house and bed - especially when you've been out to dinner and it's cold outside. It makes the difference between a hotel and a B&B. We hope you'll come back again and stay a little longer next time. Don't forget we give discounts to repeat guests.... More

We had a very relaxing 2 night stay. The fire and electric blankets were perfect and we all had the most amazing sleep. It was lovely waking up to the sounds of the animals and really added to the Country stay. We had more than enough space and privacy. Fiona was extremely helpful and was easy to contact. We would...

Our large group had the opportunity to stay at Westgate over the recent Easter break to attend the Stawell Gift. The house is great and the view is to die for. Most importantly it provide the opportunity to relax between races as well as keep warm by the wonderful fire. It must have been the perfect ingredient as one our... More

We stayed nearly 10 years ago when the property was run by different owners. Again we were not disappointed with a fantastic 2 week holiday. Fiona & Tim made the 8 of us (two families) more than welcome and the morning sheep feeding was great fun for young and old. Views are amazing and full moons, lighting in the nearby... More

We stayed here for 5 days and it was excellent. The views are unbelievable. Fiona and Tim were fantastic hosts and really went above and beyond.

Echoing the above comments, a great place for a group in particular. It is a unique place with so many bedrooms and bathrooms, and the very large dining table accommodates our wine group comfortably.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Westgate is a spacious, very comfortable house sleeping up to 12 in four main bedrooms with a sofa bed in a private room off the sitting room. There are 3 bathrooms and a very well equipped kitchen plus a barbecue outside. The house is located within an expansive established garden with ample outdoor eating areas and a swimming pool. There is a slow combustion wood heater (wood provided) for those not-so-hot days and reverse cycle air-conditioning. The views from the house are stunning in all directions and a gentle stroll up along the ridge will provide 360 degree views of both the Pyrenees and the Grampians. A perfect place to watch the sunset!Westgate is situated within the renowned Grampians wine growing region and close to Ararat, Stawell and Halls Gap. ... more   less
