We stayed 1 night in the Motor Inn with our two kids; it was impeccable, warm and cozy, and the service was very friendly! We left behind a much-loved "sausage pillow" and got a call about it straight away; they also posted it out to SA at no charge, which was so very kind!!! It's location is also perfect for... More

There is nothing worse than when you leave something behind in the rooms that is important and we will try our hardest to ensure its gets back to our guests. Although only the one night you did get to experience a small bit of what we have to offer and we hope to see you again when you have the... More

everything you need in a cabin/cottage, it was private, had a king size bed, plenty of blankets for the middle of winter and the electric blanket was a bonus, there is a compact kitchen with everything you need if you feel like cooking and the open fire was nice and romantic at night

We stayed for 2 nights in one of the one bedroom cabins complete with romantic fire place and spa bath and we had an amazing time! We simply love every aspect of the stay including the friendly interactions with the staff. They run an amazing place and ensured our stay was comfortable and fulfilled. From the overview of the grampians... More

We are glad that we exceeded your expectations and that you loved the place. Winter in the Grampians is an experience that everyone should strive for...no crowds, great walks, water falls and a cosy lodge with an open fire to come back and relax in front of. Thanks for your comments and see you next time. More

My wife and I, along with 2 friends stayed in one of the 2 bedroom lodges. None of us could find a fault. The lodge was cosy, had everything we needed and most importantly had an open fire place which was exactly what we needed after longs walks in the middle of winter. This is the second time we have...

We were the only guests on a cold and dreary winter night. But we pre-ordered the BBQ package and it was nicely laid out in their lounge area, awaiting for our arrival. It was the highlight of our stay and we enjoyed it very much. Too bad it rained all evening as the facilities were great - playground, racket games,... More

It was a shame the weather wasn't a bit kinder to you but at least you were well fed and enjoyed a true 'aussie' BBQ. Hope the rest of your trip was just as great as exploring the Grampians was. Thanks More

The stay came with a barbecue thrown in and it was a generous spread. Located away from the main road, with the mountain range as a backdrop and the woods dotting the sides, you can half expect a kangaroo to come hopping up to your door step. The wifi is only available in the reception area but then you are... More

Very friendly and helpful, offered options for dining and visiting. Tubby is a great host and helped with de-icing the cars on a very chilly morning. Superlative value. Only downside was mobile phones lost charge really quickly searching for a signal, would however suggest this is not the motel's fault as service at the foot of the Grampians can be... More

Good to see the 'girls'had a great weekend and enjoyed your time here. It was a great frost during the night so it is is good to make sure you know where you are driving to and had clear windows. Mobile phone range is difficult around the Grampians although being only 4 km's from the tower in Halls gap makes... More

We stayed for one night in the motel whilst exploring the Grampians. The location is perfect, a couple of minutes outside the centre of town but it is peaceful and there are kangaroo's roaming around. The owners are so friendly and helpful, they provided us a map of the Grampians and suggestions of where to visit. You can pre-order breakfast... More

We stayed at this motel for 2 nights in May 2015 and were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room and surroundings were for the price. It is also very handy to Halls Gap township and the Halls Gap Zoo. It is situated at the base of the Grampians and there are many drives to take to visit exceptional lookouts... More

We are not the closest motel to the town but we are one of the quietest. We love waking to the sound of birds and not that of vehicles driving past all the time. We do pride ourselves on being clean and comfortable and are happy that we have met your expectations. More

Friendly and well priced. Decor getting a little tired. Wifi only available near the office- not hard or expensive to fix, but honestly sometimes good not to have it..... 2 Dead flies on the kitchen bench and less than sparkling utensils drawers helped us to decide to eat out. Luckily there are numerous good options nearby. Beds clean and comfortable... More

Our WIFI is free and that's how we like to keep it. It is there for people to check emails, facebook ect and not be on it all night downloading whatever hence the reason we have a WIFI area. As for the flies, due to the lodges having open fire places the flies do come down the chimneys and there... More
