We stayed in a cottage homestead. Wow! Great isolated cottage, with nearby Mt Steurgeon in the Grampians. The cottage was built in the 1860s but is recently refurbished. A peaceful and relaxing stay. One of the best places I have ever stayed in.

Stayed 4 nights here, celebrated 30th wedding anniversary with amazing dinner, 5 courses, matching wines, award winning restaurant. Can also have bar meals, great service and staff. Small town with a few cafés, walks close by, about an hours drive from Halls Gap.

Unbelievable food & wine. Could not have asked for more. The waiting staff were very attentive we especially appreciated Cameron's knowledge of the wines he selected for us. Thanks for the great night.

Great accomadation and food. Very relaxing. Not much to do in Dunkeld itself. Bush walking or you can drive to other Grampian attractions. We stayed in a mountain view room and had a lovely view over Mt Sturgeon. It's a place to go for good food and peace and quiet. The breakfast was excellent. Not the same as when Dan... More

I stayed here for 2 nights while filming a TV show in the Grampians. The first thing I will point out is that the view behind the hotel to the mountain range is spectacular and one of the best I have viewed around the world. Having traveled alot at work I can recommend that the breakfast is fantastic and included... More

We stumbled across this place and got a last minute booking, pulling in around 8 pm. The views were nice, but the sunrise was really a nice surprise. The breakfast was wonderful - extremely attentive wait staff and darn good food. We ate at the bar the night before as the restaurant was a little out of our price range... More
