Stayed in a deluxe mountain view room at Royal Mail Hotel. Room was above average and did have a view of the mountain, also native plant gardens. Room appointments very good; bed comfortable; air-con maybe a bit noisy, but effective. We turned it off during the night. Had the eight course degustation menu at the restaurant; seems expensive, but you... More

After visiting the Grampians, this hotel to the south of the region is a must do for something special. We were upgraded to a deluxe room (thanks!!) which was simply gorgeous and with stunning views of the mountains. For dinner we chose the 5 course degustation, even though my partner is more a chicken Parma type bloke!! I chose to... More

We had lunch on a rainy Saturday passing through Halls Gap on the way to Warrnambool. Decided to go for the 3 course lunch in the dining room and it did not disappoint. For $50 we received 3 courses and a glass of wine or you could also do 2 courses and a glass of wine for $40. The food... More

My partner and I made a last minute decision to travel to Dunkeld due to a work opportunity for me. We booked a table for 2 for lunch on the sunday and planned to stay in Hamilton saturday night as the website said all rooms at the Royal Mail were booked out. On saturday afternoon we were called to confirm... More

We went for the 3 course dinner with friends. It is difficult to mess up sliced meats and terrines and cheese and breads so my entree and desert were acceptable though rather niggardly. The main however was a disaster, 2 small pieces of steamed fish, ditto potato and some accompaniments not easily identified, just edible but in no way enjoyable.... More

Was really looking forward to our stay but when we entered our room, it was a little disappointing. Room was dated, everything worked though. The view from the room balcony was nice. Hotel grounds were well kept, the kitchen garden tour is a must do. The tasting meal we had at the restaurant was disappointing as well. For 150 per... More

Cottages were perfect with comfortable bed, seclusion & quietness and generous breakfast provisions. And having breakfast outside under clear blue skies with Mt.Sturgeon as the backdrop was wonderful. Then to top it off we are chauffeured to dinner by Christina - enabling us to enjoy their wine on offer without concern.

We went to Dunkeld to enjoy the Southern Grampians location and the restaurant. Even mid week there was quite a large group of diners. The service and food made for a pleasant night. Suggest you try the five course menu. The general ambience, good quality rooms and friendly helpful staff make it well worth a visit. Breakfast included in the... More

We came with great expectations, having followed TA reviews. What a disappointment indeed. The kids thought the 2 bed apartment felt like a prison cell with painted Besser brick walls, the wardrobe with drawers could not be opened as the bedside table was in the way, the paint job on the outside of the place, if that is supposed to...

We stayed one night here for my partners birthday in a Deluxe Mountain View Room. Large rooms, well appointed (a cheese knife is included) and clean simple elegance. The bathroom doesn't have a bath, however the large rain shower head makes up for it. The view from the room and the balcony to enjoy it from made for a perfect... More

Dear Xavier Thank you for joining us last year and posting a 5 star review on the hotel. I am pleased you enjoyed your experience and it sounds like your visit coincided with the Magpie "swooping" season. They can be very alarming even for us in Dunkeld. Xavier once again thank you and safe travels. Regards Carl Forrest General Manager More
