Excellent food. Dinner was incredibly good. Very nice staff. Hotel rooms good too. The food makes the trip worth it. Beware of birds in spring. They do attack passersby if you get to close to their nest!

We stayed here while on a trip from Melbourne. Didn't look like much from the outside but great place to stop on way to Grampians! Apparently we later learnt had been rated best restaurant inAusralia!

We stayed here on a Sunday night, and the bluestone cottages are simply wonderful. Peaceful, secluded, away from it all, with stunning views of the Grampians. The rooms are super, lovely toiletries, big shower, the fire was all made ready for us to light. Divine. For $210, I think it was a bargain, and we will stay there again, when... More

The Royal Mail's Bluestone Cottages just outside of Dunkeld on the Mt Sturgeon Homestead are the perfect getaway. The views towards the Grampians are fabulous, the cottages are very comfortable and the local produce provided for breakfast is a special treat.

My husband and Inwere here over eleven years ago and it is is still as wonderful as I remembered. The rooms are first rate and the views from our room was beautiful, peaceful, and a wallaby in the garden outside our room. The manager was efficient and professional, nothing was a problem. The restaurant is top class - food, service,... More

I came here when Dan Hunter was at the helm and it was great! Still, I had the feeling it wasn't packing the punch everyone said it would. Dan left 2 months later and it all seemed to make sense! I returned for round two last night (quite handy having a bud who lives in Dunkheld!). I am pleased to... More

My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights in October 2014 and we had a magnificent time. The food in both the bar and the restaurant was brilliant, and the rooms just lovely. Excellent service, and in beautiful surroundings. Highly recommended.

Somewhat disappointed that breakfast is not served before 8 am on a Sunday so we moved on to Hamilton. Rooms are modern with all required amenities. The hotel is placed in a nice setting with access to many walking tracks if you like. A great stop for anyone passing by.

The hotel was very clean, great shower and sitting lounge. Enjoyed the view from the dining room at breakfast. We didn't have access to wifi, because we were in the cottages across the street from the main building. Had dinner at the restaurant- not worth the money. It was very old school cooking, in my opinion, with aspic and sweet... More

When we arrived, the staff were very friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate our special requests - extremely helpful, without being in the slightest bit snooty or sucky. Nothing seemed to be a trouble to them. Rooms were clean and very comfortable, although the aircon in the 2 story room could be better. The pool was a great relief... More
