Recently spent four nights in the motel section of Mountain View and have to say we were surprisingly impressed. The rooms have been refurbished and spotlessly clean, although the shower is rather small. The continental breakfast supplied as part of our Travel Auction package was perfect, but even more impressive was the bbq pack. A choice of meat is offered,... More

Thanks for the comments guys. Again, Rhonda's BBQ packs ensures that you do not go hungry after a hard day of exploring and it is good to see the left overs being put to a good use. It's not hard to be happy when your back yard is the Grampian's and hopefully we can pass that on to our guests... More

We stayed here for two nights in a 2 bedroom lodge. Loved the open fire and views of the bush. Hosts were very lovely and made sure we enjoyed our stay. Good facilities with small kitchen and dining/lounge. Only thing would have been for better heating in the very large, very cold bathroom, so cold in the morning for us... More

It is good for you Queenslander's to experience some real weather instead of warmth all the time. It can get a bit chilly in the mornings and it makes you appreciate the hot shower. It was great you enjoyed your time with us and that you had a safe trip home. We might see you again when you come down... More

Well located away from the Halls Gap main street but close enough to all you need. Self contained and everything provided - even wood every day for the lovely open fire. We left a phone charger and when we rang, Tubby offered to mail it to us in SA - and it was here when we got home - many... More

It is great you enjoyed the open fire in your lodge after a hard day of exploring the Grampians. Numerous items do get left behind and we do try hard to reunite them with their owners so they don't have to worry about buying more. Thanks for the comments and we will see you again next time. More

Our family stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom, full kitchen, open fire place, spa cabin. Simply heaven. A great R&R place to be. We enjoyed the beautiful bush scenery, kids playground, pool (although too cold this time of year) and lovely walks just around the grounds. Close to the Zoo and a short drive to central Halls Gap.... More

It is great that you enjoyed your holiday in the Grampians and loved the 2 bedroom lodge, as it is big enough to spread out and relax in but not too big in that you get lost in the place. We regard all of our guests as friends and try to give them as much information as possible so they... More

We stayed for one night after a day in the Grampians. Place was ideal for us as it's in a nice, quiet and scenic location. A bit out of town, but that doesn't matter if you go for one of the excellent BBQ packs (which you cook yourself on the biggest BBQ I've seen in my life!). Only dipped our... More

We do believe we have one of the best spots around Halls Gap for people to enjoy the Grampians. To be able to come back and relax in comfortable rooms is the perfect way to end a hard day and of course....enjoy a great BBQ pack prepared by Rhonda. Great that you enjoyed our hospitality. More

Stayed overnight at this lovely place on our way back to Melbourne from Halls Gap. The deluxe room that we booked was very spacious with leather sofas, large queen bed, a proper little kitchen with the essentials like toaster, microwave, kettle, some pots and pans too with the usual cutlery. The bathroom had a spa which was just awesome. The... More

Thanks for your comments. The Mt William spa suite is a great room with plenty of space to sit back and relax. The bathroom design is a bit different but it is big and the spa is a great place to wind down after a hard day exploring. Due to the dry conditions at the moment, there are a lot... More

This motel was a delight to stay at. We chose a Queen Room which had plenty of space to sit and relax. It was the only room I have stayed at where there were lots of power points for charging all our devices. Wi-Fi was available in the community room but dropped out for a while one night.

After some difficulty locating this lovely motel, the reason being the local council will NOT erect a sign directing visitors in the direction of the motel, within the townsite, and yet there are dozens of other signs for other accommodation, thank god for my GPS. Rant over. The motel is gorgeous, set in quiet bushland, roo, emu present, we were... More

We do have problems with signage in the area but that is life and we don't stress over it. Once people find us then all of their problems disappear as they sit back, relax in our open spaces and enjoy what we have to offer. It is great you experienced the local food and have great memories of your trip... More

Recently stayed here overnight, booked 3 rooms, got 1/2/3 from the reception area down. Very nice rooms, comfortable and beautiful views. Breakfast was lovely. Manager was polite and friendly, Wifi took a long time to connect, but eventually did. Would stay again, and try out the pool and BBQ areas.
